Sound Therapy for Pet Calming and Healing

seniordog.jpg

This time of year, routines change, company comes a-calling and our pets can be a little needier / grumpier than normal -- especially if they are injured, ill or getting older.

Soft, low music can create a pleasant, comfortable atmosphere for us all. Sound therapy is effective in calming jarred nerves and soothing health issues, both human and animal. Two great choices:

This music has helped those suffering from illness, injury and life's transitions.

Pet Vet Records iPhone App

pvr.png.jpg

None of us want our own medical records to be inaccurate, and same goes for those of our pets. Maintaining up-to-date, current pet records is an important part of keeping our pets healthy and we need to be their advocate.

The iPhone app Pet Vet Records gives you control of your own pet records. This is software for managing and sharing your pet's health records with vets and others--online and accessible by anyone, anywhere. In case several vets treat your pet, you can avoid any roadblocks sharing and transferring records from one vet to another.

iPhone applications are available on iTunes.com.

Here at Super Cool Pets our goal is to feature products and news that will enhance and improve the lives of the animals who live with us. The sad, bad news is that there are products sold out there that may easily be toxic to our pets and ourselves, unbeknownst to any of us.

The good folks over at HealthyStuff.org tested over 400 pet products, including beds, chew toys, stuffed toys, collars, leashes, and tennis balls. They are finding elevated levels of lead, mercury, arsenic and other chemicals that can be hazardous to human health, especially for pets and children.

The HealthyStuff.org site has an interactive database listing the products by brand, type, or level of concern with a product search as well. You can request new products to be tested. Their product database can also be accessed using the Flash Widget, SMS Texting, and a mobile application.

The site is not just about pet products. You can review 15,000 test results on over 5,000 other common items including children's products, cars, apparel and accessories, back-to-school products and more.
