Role-Playing: When Your Child Wants a Pet

walkdog.jpg

When your child begs for a dog or cat and promises to take care of it, Baby Toolkit has a great suggestion:

If your child wants a dog, BEGS for a dog, and you don't want to shoulder the entire responsibility for a pet, test the child's promises to "take care of the dog." Make an agreement. If your child will wake at a specified earlier time and then "walk" the imaginary dog (10 to 20 minutes) every day for 21 days that you will then begin seriously considering getting a pet. I'd make it a month of walking because that's how long it takes to establish a habit.

The same role-playing can go for feeding the pet, changing the litterbox or bird cage liner, freshening their water--any responsibilities you want your child to assume.

Bach Rescue Remedy Relieves Pet Stress

Our sweet Golden Retriever Molly is phobic about thunderstorms. Now even rain can send her hiding in the closet or under our feet at the computer. She trembles, pants heavily and looks around wildly. Just the words for thunder and rain will send her slinking away. (We spell a lot around here.)

We are reluctant to drug our dogs, since they cannot give us verbal feedback on how they feel, and by the time it takes effect the storm is passed. But since we have moved out of the drought here in Florida, we cannot have her feeling this way on a daily basis.

Bach Rescue Remedy - Natural Stress Reliever (10 mL)

Yesterday, we tried Rescue Remedy, a homeopathic treatment which you probably have heard of. Well, it worked. It first seemed to be wishful thinking, but it was true. She stayed out on the sofa in the TV room with us, still drooling some and not a happy camper, but not relatively calm. We gave her 2 doses, about a 1/2 hour apart, of 4 drops each. She weighs about 90 lbs.

Rescue Remedy is absorbed by mucuous membranes, so it doesn't even need to be swallowed and is best administered between the gum and lining of the jaw. Since it contains a combination of five flower essences including impatiens, star of Bethlehem, cherry plum, rock rose, and clematis, overdosing is not a major concern, but prudence is recommended. If you know how this works, or would like to write about your own thunderstorm remedy, please leave a comment.

Other thunderstorm and stress remedies featured on Super Cool Pets are Stress Relieving Diffusers, Pet Stress Patch and Anxiety Wraps.

Best deal on Rescue Remedy is at Amazon, where the price is almost half of local retail. Also available at Entirely Pets as well as many retail stores.

UPDATE: Two days after this was originally written, Molly is sleeping at my feet snoring through a thunderstorm. She was given only one dose of the drops.

Ear Relief Wash Swabs

Our long-eared Retrievers have a chronic problem with itchy, mucky inflamed ears. It seems to get a little worse when they spend a lot of time in the pool or the ocean. Our vet diagnosed their problem years ago and has prescribed Animax Ointment, which treats the condition in cats as well.

Animax Ointment

But we need something to clean out their ears before we apply the ointment. Here's what we have been looking for--Ear Relief Wash Swabs to relieve itching and odor in the ears of our pets. Each package contains 24 liquid-filled 1.5 oz swabs.

Home Marketing for Pet Owners

Little-Pink-House-of-Cats-Poster-C12181795.jpeg
Little Pink House of Cats

As much as we all love our pets, we know they take a toll on the condition of our home. Their presence unfortunately can actually lower the sales price or even quash a deal. When your home is for sale on the market, you want to set the stage to create buyer interest within a reasonable time period and generate a good offer. How our pets affect the showings is a factor that must be taken into account. Here a some possible issues to confront ahead of time:

Allergies--A home rife with animal hair and dander can spell misery for an allergic buyer or their real estate agent. An affected person will have no choice but to turn on their heel and leave. Don't expect an offer.

Odors and Stains--Pet urine, especially cat, and stains on walls, carpeting, furniture, under floorboards can put off a potential buyer. There are numerous products to deal with these smells and stains. Even if you aren't selling your home now, best to deal immediately with any accidents. In the event of an offer, which could easily be lowball, it most likely will be a seller expense to remedy the pet odor problem prior to closing.

We have featured some helpful products in prior posts (here and here). A tool such as the Spot Spotter Ultraviolet Urine Detector by Simple Solution will help you to detect the source of pet odors.

black%20light.jpg

Features:

* Battery-operated urine detector helps identify the source of pet odors
* Works on carpeting, wood flooring, concrete, tile, upholstery, and other surfaces
* Black light bulb lasts up to 5,000 hours on average
* Runs on 8 AA batteries or a 12v DC adapter (not included)
* Measures approximately 3 by 1 by 12 inches

Showings--If at all possible, be prepeared to leave the home with your pet during all showings. If you cannot remove the pet, try to constrain them in the cage or perhaps in an enclosed area such as a screened porch. Some people shut their pet in a bedroom or study during a showing, but then of course the buyer is prevented from seeing part of the home and may wonder what's up. Chance of offer reduced.

OdoBan Pet Bitter Barrier, No Chew Spray

a_chewing02.jpg

If you have a new puppy or even an older one with chewing issues, OdoBan Pet Bitter Barrier, No Chew Spray may save the day. It creates a bitter-tasting invisible barrier to discourage chewing and gnawing. Use it to keep pups away from your stuff and also to keep them from fur biting and hotspots. Product contains tea tree oil to sooth skin.

69922-24Z%2C%20Bitter%20Spray%20lowres.jpg

Our dogs have outgrown their chewing (finally!) by age 4, but they still carry around our socks and play with toys. When applied to these items, our Goldens did find this product distasteful and repellant.

At $4.97 for a 24-oz spray bottle, it is definitely worth a try. Certainly cheaper than buying new sneakers or a new coffee table. According to Odoban, the No-Chew-Spray is safe for pets and children. Available at Wal*mart.
