Brake-Fast Pet Bowl Slows Your Pet Down

brakefastbowl.jpg

One thing about pets is they usually don't exactly savor their food. If you have a pet that eats too fast, this Brake-Fast Bowl should improve their table manners. They have to work around the prongs and can't engulf the food quite so fast. Hopefully they will feel fuller and not want to eat so much.

  • Helps reduce the risk of Gastric Dilatation-Volvulus, aka Gastric Torsian or 'Bloat')
  • Slower eating makes an animal feel more full and reduces instances of 're-eating'
  • Veterinarian tested and recommended
  • Works with kibble or canned food
  • Elegant, no-tip shape
  • Durable, dishwasher safe plastic

Small: 1-1/2 cups for small breeds, flat face breeds & cats.
Medium: 5 cups (for Beagle to Bernese Mt. Dog).
Large: 8 cups (for giant breeds).

Is Your Wild Birdseed Disappearing Too Fast? Try a Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeder

Squirrel_Stealing_Peanuts.jpg

If you are noticing that your wild bird seed is disappearing awfully quickly, most likely squirrels are climbing and jumping on to raid the goodies.

You could install a Squirrel Baffle, which may or may not deter the villains. Or, if you are handy, jerry-rig one yourself.

But, why have this:

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

lostpets.gif

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).

Pet Anxiety Remedies--Melatonin, Music & Rescue Remedy

Your dog is shaking, panting and pacing frenetically around the house. Maybe cowering in the closet or hiding under the bed. Some dogs even scratch and destroy their surroundings.The problem--anxiety, whether to noise, thunder, strangers, in-breeding or the boogeyman. What to do, to make your pet, and yourself, feel better.

Two intriguing new releases this March 8, a book with two sample CD tracks, Through a Dog's Ear: Using Sound to Improve the Health & Behavior of Your Canine Companion
throughadogsearbook.jpg
and a companion music CD Through a Dog's Ear: Music to Calm Your Canine Companion, Volume 1, music designed to calm animals and humans.
throughadogsearcd.jpg
The book applies the latest science on how dogs hear and react to sound. It includes research information, stories, and a two-track sample CD--one to calm your dog and one for general enjoyment entitled "Music for the canine household".

The CD carries 9 full tracks of solo piano music. The individual pieces have been selected and/or rearranged (lowering tempo and pitch, for example) to gradually reduce the heart rate and respiratory rate.This music has been clinically researched, studying its effect on dogs of different temperaments and in various anxiety-producing situations. The studies show that this "psycho-acoustically designed" music reduced anxiety at twice the rate of traditional classical music.

[via Janet Tobiassen Crosby, DVM, Veterinary Medicine]

In our own household, one of our Golden Retrievers is now not only terrified of thunder, but even upset by a rain shower, obviously due to association. This suffering cannot go on, not to mention, rainy nights=sleepless nights. Music therapy is fine for the day, but at night we prefer quiet.
Melatonin.jpg
We have been using Rescue Remedy, but our dog's anxiety level has heightened so it really has not been as effective recently. On the recommendation of our vet, we wrapped a Melatonin 3 Mg pill up in a slice of deli ham and fed it to our dog. This has calmed her down and she lay quietly in the closet during the last storm, not panting. The anxiety is still present, but seems to be reduced. Check with your vet as to dosage, especially if you have a smaller dog.

If you have read this far, you too must be interested in the subject of pet anxiety. If you have any remedies of your own, please leave a comment or email them to news@supercoolpets.com
