Vet Recommends High Protein Food for Your Elderly Pet

highproteinpetfood.JPG

If you have an elderly pet, you may have heard you should cut back on the protein. But feeding him or her more protein may be a good thing, according to Geriatric Pets Need More Protein:

It is commonly believed that feeding geriatric dogs and cats normal or high amounts of protein can cause kidney disease or make existing kidney disease worse. Food manufacturers prey on this belief by offering lower protein foods for geriatric dogs and cats, when in actuality, geriatric pets benefit from higher protein diets.

In fact, the prolonged feeding of special veterinary kidney diets to pets without clinical signs of kidney disease can actually cause unnecessary muscle loss, a compromised immune system, and osteoporosis.

So we are going to check out High Protein Dog Food and High Protein Cat Food. As always, this is not a medical blog, so for more info please confer with your vet and read Geriatric Pets Need More Protein.

Do dogs dream? Sure seems like they do, asleep on the floor, whimpering, paws twitching. Can they recognize themselves in the mirror or understand what they're seeing on the TV? Are they more intelligent than cats? We all wonder about how dogs think and perceive the world.

In Do Dogs Dream?: Nearly Everything Your Dog Wants You to Know dog researcher and psychology professor Stanley Coren answers the most commonly asked questions about how dogs think and act in a conversational Q&A format with illustrations. Sounds intriguing!

Drown Out Scary Thunder Sounds for Your Pet with a iPhone/iPod Speaker System

altecspeaker.jpg

Our Golden Retrievers live in the lightning capital of the world. Where there is lightning, there is thunder--scary thunder. One of them is panting nervously now by our side even as we post.

There are numerous theories as to why pets are so frightened of thunder. Every being responds individually to their environment and in this dog's case, we suspect thunder sounds a lot like the roar of an unknown and very huge terrifying beast coming to get her.

So since we love our doggie, we drown the beast out. Experts recommend calming music, which seems to help. We pull up Pandora on our iPhone, select the Calm Meditations station, and plug the iPhone into our portable Altec Lansing IMT320 inMotion Compact iPod Speaker System. We rev up the music, place it on the counter by the dark closet/cave she hides in, and off she drifts, generally.

This light-weight speaker system folds as slim as a book, so you can easily take it with you and enjoy good-quality music on your iPhone or iPod wherever you go. The inMotion Compact has an attached wrap-around cover which protects the speakers and doubles as a stand.

Push-button volume controls are integrated directly into the top of the speaker. The iMT320's universal dock recharges your iPod or iPhone while you're listening to music, and it can be powered by either an AC adapter or four AA batteries (not included) when an outlet is not available.

Chuckit! Ball Launcher -- Hands-Free Fetch Toy Throws Farther and Faster

If you just returned from a grueling week of launching tennis balls into the water or across the lawn, we bet you are sorry you never picked up a handy Chuckit! Ball Launcher. There's still plenty of time and great fetching weather left.

The Launcher acts as an extension of your arm, saving you the wear-and-tear. Use it to scoop up the ball so you don't have to deal with the slobber. And you can throw longer and faster, as far as 140 ft, so your dog gets more exercise and tires out quicker!

avoidapoomarkers.jpg

Procrastination is putting off what we don't want to do, or just can't right now. If the dog makes a mess, but the time is not right for clean-up, leave a marker so you can find it later and no one steps in it.

These Avoid-A-Poo Markers have a handy yellow handle to make cleanup easy. They are made using durable, weather-resistant plastic that, with normal use, will last up to 3 years.

Pet's Water Cooler

petsfrobowatercooler.jpg

The heat wave in many parts of the country has been relentless. Tough for people to stay cool and hydrated with (or without!) power, not to mention our sweet pets. In hot weather ice cubes keep water cold but melt so quickly. Pet fountains require electricity or batteries.

This Pet's Water Cooler keeps an 8-hour supply of water for a pet chilled all day long using a removable insert lined with non-toxic gel. Includes a second insert for use while the other one is chilling in the freezer. Holds 24 ounces.
