Petmate Le Bistro Automatic Pet Feeder -- Simple Electronic Portion-Control


The Petmate Le Bistro Electronic Portion-Control Automatic Pet Feeder is an affordable option when you want to feed your cat or dog on a "demand" schedule, whether you are home or away. Features:

  • Fully automatic pet food feeder
  • Programmable from 1-3 feedings per day
  • Control the portion per feeding from 1/4 cup up to 2 cups per feeding
  • Removable bowl for easy cleaning
  • Food reservoir holds up to 5 pounds of food

The Petmate Le Bistro Electronic Portion-Control Automatic Pet Feeder can be set to meet scheduled feeding times and amounts when owners are away, but it is not meant to replace the TLC that they all need. Once or twice a day, someone should check on cats and dogs left alone.

Throw Away the Shampoo and Wash Your Pet in a High-Tech Bubble Bath


Wouldn't it be great to throw away the pet shampoo and wash your pet with jets of water only? IDEC Corp will release a micro-bubble generator for a dog bath this Friday June 20. The system washes dogs with streams of bubble-filled water instead of shampoo. No more suds!

Called "Wan love yu" which means "Dogs love warm water", the jaccuzzi's tiny bubbles apparently can remove dirt from between the fur and on the skin. It works through a special shower head that discharges water containing approximately 600,000 tiny air bubbles per cubic centimeter.

Just pick one up for around $6,000 to $7,000 and use with your standard pet bath. Or wait for the price to drop!

Missing Pet? Track Your Pet with a Retrieva GPS Pet Tracking Collar


We have featured GPS Pet Tracking Systems periodically at Super Cool Pets: the Zoombak Advanced GPS Dog Locator, the Garmin Astro, as well as the PetCellâ„¢. A stolen or lost pet is one of life's agonies, but these GPS systems can save the day and make that misery a distant memory. Here is an update on another state-of-the-art GPS Tracker.

The Retrieva GPS Pet Tracking Collar system has a lockable collar, made from anti-cut material with automatic interference alert to discourage pet theft. Owners can log on to the system's website and zero in on the exact location of their pet on the site's panel. If your pet leaves a pre-determined area, an alert will be triggered and a text will be sent to the owner's phone.

It uses three tracking technologies, satellite, mobile and radio transmitters, so your pet can be found virtually anywhere--inside buildings, underground, in cars or in dense vegetation.

One feature for the owner we particularly like--if you feel endangered while walking your pet, you can hit the Retrieva's panic button to call for help.


More features from the site:

Tracking Technology

* Contains 3 different tracking technologies (satellite, telecom and radio frequency) to enable location in virtually every environment
* Has 'sky-view' GPS antenna to optimise performance
* User-programmable for changing operational performance and reporting frequency
* Global coverage with appropriate SIM card

Anti-Theft (Security) Features

* Has locking buckle with automatic interference alert (via SMS text) if the buckle is tampered with whilst locked
* Made of anti-cut material with automatic interference alert (via SMS text) if any attempt is made to cut it
* Can alert the owner (via SMS text) if the dog roams out of any pre-defined safe area or enters a forbidden area

Design and Convenience

* Programmed and delivered so that it is 'ready to use'
* Comfortable, stylish and integrated collar design, with reinforced webbing strap
* Waterproof and dustproof to IP67
* Adjustable for size to ensure comfort and security
* Suitable for virtually all dogs - small, medium and large
* Harness version available (late 2008) with the same features for very small dogs
* Self-diagnostic button on the buckle to allow user to assess performance
* Create virtual fences wherever you go
* Communicates directly with your mobile phone, the internet and/or a hand-held receiver
* Automatically alerts you of many events by SMS text, including low battery alert and dog leaving a safe area
* Optional 'easy release buckle insert' available for use in environments where you would not normally put a collar on your dog but may still wish to track it. Useful for all types of working dogs. If the collar does break free you will receive an automatic alert of this event by SMS text. (Nb. Insert cannot be used with a lead. It is bright yellow and tagged with a clip to the D-ring to remind you to remove it if necessary).

"Tell Me Where It Hurts"-- A Day in the Life of an Animal Surgeon

An intriguing new book out is a "behind-the-scenes" account of a day in the life of a vet: Tell Me Where It Hurts: A Day of Humor, Healing and Hope in My Life as an Animal Surgeon by Nick Trout, a staff surgeon at Boston's Angell Animal Medical Center.
A quick summary from Susan Richards, author of Chosen by a Horse:

"Dr. Trout has given us a lifetime in one day as he takes us on his rounds as a veterinary surgeon. With equal parts, wit, wisdom, and great kindness, he offers a rare look into the mind and heart of a remarkable man. He is the vet every animal owner wants and the advocate every animal deserves when it comes to facing the complexities and often expensive options of diagnostics and treatment. This is a man who loves his job, and everyone benefits: the animals in his care, their often lovable but sometimes infuriating owners, and, lastly, the reader, who is lucky enough to go along for the literary ride."

Tell Me Where It Hurts: A Day of Humor, Healing and Hope in My Life as an Animal Surgeon. Also available in Kindle Edition--download in less than a minute. Don't have one? Information about the wireless reader Kindle is one click away.
