First Aid Kit for Birds

Bird_First_Aid_Kit.jpg

The medical needs of dogs and cats are pretty familiar, but would you know what to do if you had an emergency with your pet bird?

For instance, a while back here at Super Cool Pets HQ our cockatiel flew right up into a swirling ceiling fan and broke a wing.

To get a leg up on a bird medical emergency, we now keep a First Aid Kit for Birds close by to easily handle minor injuries and stabilize serious wounds.

Hot New Pet Book Release--DIY Dog Grooming, From Puppy Cuts to Best in Show

DogGrooming.JPG

Our dogs love to look beautiful--it's just that their idea of beauty (covered in mud) and ours can be miles apart. Grooming a dog regularly helps keep him/her in good health. Their family can keep an eye out potential physical issues and stop the spread of dirt, fleas, and germs that crop up all too often.

However, professional grooming is one more household expense. So how about DIY? If you want to try doggy grooming in the privacy of your own home, Jorge Bendersky, a celebrity dog groomer in New York City, has just released a how-to DIY Dog Grooming, From Puppy Cuts to Best in Show: Everything You Need to Know, Step by Step. He grooms Manhattan area dogs and consults on dog grooming, having appeared on Animal Planet, The Today Show, ABC Nightline, CW11, and E! News, and in the New York Post, the New York Daily News, the Chicago Tribune, and more.

DIY Dog Grooming has practical step-by-step tips and photos to teach you how to bathe and trim your dog, plus care for his/her nails, ears, teeth, and more. Included are solutions to common problems like fleas and ticks, dirt and mud. Dog too tense for grooming? You can learn how to train your dog to relax and enjoy grooming.

Nutri-Vet Hide'ems Dog and Cat Treats -- Makes Pet Pill Giving a Treat

hideems.JPG

Here at Super Cool Pets HQ, we can spot a pill a mile away. We don't like them, and we will spit them out. There's no fooling us, that's for sure.

For the super-discriminating pet, who NEEDS to take his or her meds, especially on a regular basis, these Hide'ems Dog Treats and Hide'ems Cat Treats are sure worth their weight in gold. They're perfect for any pet that doesn't like to take pills or capsules.

You just shape them around any size capsule, and the flavor hides any medicinal odors or taste. No bitter aftertaste either.

Stay Rite Inflatable Recovery Dog Collar

stayritecollar.jpg

Often our pets have to wear a recovery collar following surgery or an injury to keep them from aggravating a healing wound. Certainly this is very stressful and adds to the misery of already having to deal with the pain of a wound.

This Stay Rite Xtra Strong Inflatable Recovery Dog Collar from Cardinal Laboratories should help your pet feel less stressed and more comfortable with having to wear a foreign object around his/her neck.

For starters, it is light blue -- a color that dogs can actually see, but it doesn't block your pet's vision. The collar's unique notches keep it round so that your dog can't wiggle out. It's easy to attach to your dog's collar and is puncture resistant.

PetScoop -- New Pet Dental Product: Milk-Bone Brushing Chews

milkbone_brushingchews.jpg

Do you brush your dog's teeth? Will your dog even LET you brush his/her teeth? Even though we all love our dogs to pieces and know we are supposed to, few of us actually do, doggie breath and all. Even our vets. But take heart, relief is on the way.

Milk-Bone will be launching Milk-Bone Brushing Chews this coming March. Research shows that the Chews are as effective as twice-per-week brushing when given daily, reducing tartar and halitosis.

The new Brushing Chew is, of course, shaped like a bone, with a 75 degree twist, plus nubs and ridges designed to clean down to the gum line as would the bristles on a toothbrush. But...are they fattening? Chews for small dogs tally up to less than 65 calories per treat and the chews for large dogs will be less than 100 calories.

Drool Fuel Canine Sports Drink

Avoid deadly overheating in your dog. Some of our dogs are athletic and always on the go. During intense exercise and also in hot climates, dogs lose a lot of water and nutrients they need to function, just like we do.

Drool Fuel is a sports drink for dogs designed to help your dog remain properly hydrated and enhance muscle recovery from physical exercise. You can also pre-hydrate by giving it to your dog 30 minutes or less prior to physical activity or prolonged exposure to heat.

At Drool Fuel.

Pets and Glow Sticks on July 4th -- Just Say No

GlowCat.jpg

Fourth of July can be a lot of fun. Maybe not so much for our pets. It's easy to forget that our pets don't have a clue what all the noise and partying is about.

Revelers, especially children, have been known to dress up pets with the glow sticks or glow jewelry that they are playing with. Along with fireworks, these are toxic for our pets.

It may look adorable, but if those are chewed up and swallowed, plastics and glowing chemicals are not good for animal bodies, likely resulting in gastrointestinal irritation, as well as intestinal blockage. One more problem no one needs.

Best Selling Pet Book -- The Dog Lived (and So Will I) by Teresa Rhyne

TheDogLived.jpg

Looking for something inspiring to read? The Dog Lived (and So Will I) by animal advocate and breast cancer survivor Teresa Rhyne is a #1 New York Times best seller, a #1 Wall Street Journal best seller and a USA Today best seller. Here's the scoop:

Teresa Rhyne vowed to get things right this time around: new boyfriend, new house, new dog, maybe even new job. But shortly after she adopted Seamus, a totally incorrigible beagle, vets told Teresa that he had a malignant tumor and less than a year to live. The diagnosis devastated her, but she decided to fight it, learning everything she could about the best treatment for Seamus. Teresa couldn't possibly have known then that she was preparing herself for life's next hurdle -- a cancer diagnosis of her own.

She forged ahead with survival, battling a deadly disease, fighting for doctors she needed, and baring her heart for a seemingly star-crossed relationship. The Dog Lived (and so Will I) is an uplifting and heartwarming story about how dogs steal our hearts, show us how to live, and teach us how to love.
