Back Yard Bird Feeder Bird Seed Hoop


One of our dogs' more enjoyable pastimes is snacking on the seed the wild birds have spilled onto the ground from their feeders. For many backyard birders, this scattering is a waste of seed, plus which it does damage the grass and attracts rodents.

To solve that problem, attach this lightweight mesh Seed Hoop to almost any bird feeder and catch virtually all that seed your birds spill.

The Hoop is available in two sizes--a 30" diameter and a smaller 16" diameter and folds to 1/3 its full size for easy storage and shipping.

Squirrel Buster Classic Bird Feeder


It's rewarding to enjoy wild birds at the back yard feeders, but frustrating to watch pesky squirrels steal the seed and the show.

This Squirrel Buster Classic cleverly uses the squirrel's weight to foil the theft attempts. The feeder has openings in its wire grid that align with the seed ports and allow the birds to access the seed. When a squirrel or large bird climbs onto the feeder, its weight forces the grid down and shuts down access to the seed ports.

The feeder has plenty of surfaces for small clinging birds such as nuthatches to grip, with removable perches for chickadees, finches and sparrows.

Super cool find via Garden Snob.

PetScoop: FDA Says Bones are Unsafe for Your Dog


What could be more "natural" than giving your dog a bone? For a brief while we gave our Golden Retrievers large bones to gnaw on during that pesky and seemingly eternal chewing stage. A few bouts with middle-of-the-night tummy upsets quickly led us to abandon bones in favor of safer chewy toys.

Apparently the FDA agrees. In No Bones About It: Bones are Unsafe for Your Dog they list 10 reasons why it's a "bad idea to give your dog a bone". You probably will agree it isn't worth it.

Help Your Pet Lose Weight -- Pet Obesity Specialist Ernie Ward MD Q & A at the Washington Post


Last month we posted on author/veterinarian Dr. Ernest Ward's new book Chow Hounds: Why Our Dogs Are Getting Fatter - A Vet's Plan to Save Their Lives. For those concerned about maintaining a healthy weight for their pet, the Washington Post has an informative Q&A with Dr. Ernie Ward who writes:

As many of you know, pet obesity is a growing problem in the U.S., now affecting 45 percent of all adult dogs and 58 percent of cats. That equals approximately 34 million dogs and 54 million cats that are overweight and at risk for diseases such as diabetes/insulin resistance, arthritis, high blood pressure, kidney disease, cancer and more.

In the end, we all get it that pet obesity is the result of too much food intake. Resources such as this book can teach us all to create new behavior patterns for ourselves and the pets we love.

Amazon Hot New Pet Book Release -- Home-Prepared Dog and Cat Diets


American consumers are paying top dollar for corn meal-based dry pet food. It's one thing for cheap brands, but another matter entirely that the packaging of many high-end foods list corn meal as the primary ingredient.

Feeding carnivores corn meal + additives can't be healthy. Whatever money is saved in the supermarket will ultimately be spent several times over at the vet's office.

Home-Prepared Dog and Cat Diets by Patricia Schenck is a second edition that has been completely rewritten to present the latest nutritional recommendations for your healthy dog and cat based on current research. It also contains an extensive discussion of medical disorders that can be managed in part through diet. You will love the simple recipes that can easily be prepared in your own kitchen at home. Sounds like a keeper!
