Non-Skid Power Paws Traction Socks

powerpaws1.jpg

If you have tile or hardwood floors in your home, you know it may be difficult for your dogs to gain traction on the slippery surfaces. These non-skid Power Paws socks help our older dogs with mobility issues, arthritis or hip dysplasia, and our younger ones too, after surgery or when playing.

Tile floors get cold in the winter--these socks will keep paws warm. And for those times you break a glass or dish, the socks can help prevent paw injuries from unseen shards.

Power Paws socks come in different styles for Halloween, Christmas, Valentine's Day, Easter and in various colors. Made of breathable cotton with additional elastic for fit and rubber treads for traction. So cute!

Crush Pet Pills Up in an Automatic Pill Grinder

autopillgrinder.jpg

Giving our pets a pill is often a challenge. We have known a dog who meticulously eats around the pill and leaves it in the bowl. Even submerging in peanut butter sometimes doesn't work. And don't even think about giving a pill to the cat.

This handheld Automatic Pill Grinder is just the ticket if you live with a pet (or human) who can't or won't swallow pills. Just grind their tablet-type pills straight in to their food or beverage--problem solved!

PetScoop: Remove Household Pet Odors with Charcoal Briquettes

charbriq.jpg

As we batten down the hatches this fall, we may start to notice a pervasive pet smell a little more than when balmy breezes were wafting through our rooms. To absorb pet odors (or any other kind) from the air in your home, Apartment Therapy recommends stashing a few charcoal briquettes around the house:

As for how to distribute them, you can simply lay a few out in a metal tray. Other options: sew pouches for them or use an old sock, then hang them in inconspicuous areas. Line a basket with foil or plastic and lay the briquettes inside. Or simply set them out on a tray on a shelf or side table: the black little pillows actually look kind of cool!

Be sure to stick with the natural briquettes such as Kingsford Original Charcoal Briquets and avoid the mesquite briquettes or ones with easy-light additives.

PetScoop: New Ornilux Windowpanes Help Prevent Bird Strikes

PL_ tower_with_birds.jpg

Hundreds, thousands of birds are injured, maimed and killed world-wide upon contact with reflective glass windows and panels. Birds see trees or the sky in the glass and fly right smack into it at their peril.

To make the glass more visible to birds, compassionate residential bird lovers often use closely-spaced opaque window decals, or stencils painted with tempera as a warning. Recently conservationist and ecologically-minded designers have promoted glass as a building material, and it has gained popularity in the form of transparent panels. Likewise, the bird/glass fatality problem has become more complex.

The New York Times recently reported on an innovative new type of glass called Ornilux, made by Arnold Glas of Remshalden, Germany.The glass is made with a patterned coating that reflects ultraviolet light, visible to birds, but still transparent to the human eye. It is, of course, more expensive than regular glass.

Ceramic Slow-Down Pet Bowl For Pets Who Eat Too Fast

ceramicslowdownbowl.jpg

We have featured this Slow Down Pet Bowl in plastic in a prior post (see Brake-Fast Bowl). It helps slow the pace of eating for pets gobble their food too quickly for their own good. This Ceramic Slow Down Bowl is a more heavy-duty version. Ceramic bowls are more stable and durable than plastic, plus they don't absorb toxins and are easier to clean. And they don't slide across the floor as easily.

This bowl features a raised bone shape in the middle, plus raised semicircles to keep your pet from grabbing at his/her kibble, and therefore take in too much food too quickly. (Sound like anyone you know?) The bowl may help prevent some digestive problems and even the deadly bloat. The Ceramic Slow Down Bowl is dishwasher and microwave safe in Moss or Pewter.

Supercollar -- Dog Collar and Leash in One

supercollar.jpg

Wouldn't it be great to walk your dog off leash, without worrying about safety and leash laws? Actually, some dogs are pretty good about sticking around (those who obsess about the treats you keep handing out), but for those who must have access to a leash, here's a way.

The Supercollar is a "hybrid" to use in place of your separate collar and leash. It has a built-in retractable leash that enables you to gain immediate control of your dog, without having to take the time to attach a leash or harness.

When you need to control your dog, simply release a tab on the collar and pull out the retractable 36-inch leash. And, if you you don't want to give up using your long, hand-held retractable leash sometimes, you still can. The supercollar includes a "D" ring for attachment. This collar is strong, durable, and waterproof with 3M Scotchlite reflective accents to keep you and your pet visible in the dark.

Supercollar in Medium (13"-17") and Large (16"-22") for dogs weighing between 20 and 90 lbs.
