For people, it's Chapstick. For our doggies, it's Snoutstik, a nose balm in stick form. It sounds funny, but dogs' noses are very sensitive!

Whether due to the cold, allergies, sunburn or who knows what, when a dog's snout dries out, it can crack and that's painful. Snoutstik looks like a tube of Chapstick that you apply to the dog's nose.

Available in rosemary, lavender and pumpkin scents.

Pet Toy Safety -- Cats and Strings May Be a Dangerous Combination

Catstring.jpg

Cats seem to be fascinated with anything long and thin, and many of us give them string and twine to play with. But according to Cats and Linear Foreign Bodies - String, Thread, Ribbon, and the Like | Pet MD | Dr. Lorie Huston an unsupervised cat can actually swallow these "linear foreign bodies" which are particularly hazardous.

As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This is certainly true when it comes to cats and linear foreign bodies.

If you use toys containing string, yarn, twine or fishing wire (such as cat wands) to entertain your cat, supervise your cat during play and lock the toys securely away when you are unavailable to supervise.

Be sure to keep sewing boxes, craft kits and other items that contain string, twine, yarn, fishing wire, rubber bands, and similar objects locked away from your cat also.

If you do find your cat with string hanging from your pet's mouth or anus, the vet cautions to not pull on the string or otherwise attempt to remove it, as it may be attached somewhere along the intestinal tract.

To be on the safe side, best to keep an eye on your cat when he/she is playing with toys.

PetScoop: Benefits of Fish Oil and Essential Fatty Acid DHA for Puppies and Kittens

fishoil.jpg

To ease the pain of osteoarthritis, veterinarians often recommend incorporating fish oil into the diets of older cats and dogs. New research suggests that puppies and kittens may benefit from DHA-rich fish oil, according to Fish Oil and Puppies | PetMD | Dr. Ken Tudor.

The researchers concluded that...fish oil may aid in the neurological development of puppies....DHA supplementation in kittens may not have the same beneficial visual or neurological development effects. Until there is more research in this area, my personal and professional opinion is that fish oil supplementation in kittens is safe so all risk is to the positive upside.

As in all things medical, check with your vet prior to adding any supplements or meds to your pet's diet. At Fish Oil for Pets

Is your cat or dog depressed? Many of us find our mood gets darker as the sunlight dims, but our pets may also suffer from seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Vets treat SAD in pets with Prozac or other related drugs.

Max Marvin, a 21-year-old entrepreneur, sought a natural treatment and has designed the Sol Box. This is a light therapy box geared to help pets receive adequate amounts of light to help balance their mood and their sleep-regulating hormones.

Pets generally gravitate on their own toward the light. The minimum effective dose is about 30 to 45 minutes exposure.

Sol Box should be available mid-November at Sol Box | Pawsitive Lighting retailing at $199. If that's a bit steep, there are plenty of affordable options along the same lines at Light Therapy | Amazon.

GLC 1000 -- Vet-Recommended Targeted Joint Care for Dogs

glc1000.JPG

Our dogs rely on us to keep them healthy, happy and fit. If you are noticing any discomfort and tenderness after normal everyday activity, reduced activity levels and maybe a ho-hum interest in playtime, your dog may need some joint care. Reluctance and hesitation to run, jump, walk, sit, or navigate flights of stairs or hills are pretty clear-cut manifestations of a dog in pain.

Our Super Cool Pets veterinarian and many others recommend GLC 1000 - 180 Caps for older and less mobile dogs of all breeds, shapes and sizes. Its formula is a composition of all four spectrum glucosamines to help maintain cartilage and hydration. Also available as GLC 1000 Powder to control the dose. When in doubt, ask for your vet's opinion.
