The sturdy tennis ball, which doesn't squeak, is loaded into the body of the squeaker toy, creating a fun challenge for dogs to remove. The erratic bounce of the Tennis Pal can also be used for exciting games of fetch.

Sports Nutrition and Hydration for Active Dogs

exercisingwithdogs.jpg

Many of us like to run and exercise with our dogs. And as our dogs become tired and hungry during their workout, we shore them up with made-for-human performance bars and Gatorade.

In Feeding Your Canine Athlete | NYTimes.com Gretchen Reynolds reports that "the latest science about performance nutrition for canines underscores that dogs are not people." Recommendation for hydrating exercising dogs is plenty of good old-fashioned, relatively cheap water:

Dogs don't sweat like we do. They pant to cool themselves. But they do lose fluids during activity. On the other hand, they are much better than most people at rehydrating. We did a study with search-and-rescue dogs working in 90-degree heat. They replaced their fluid losses almost drop for drop.

To recover from a workout, the article recommends protein-rich dog food to build and maintain muscle plus a small increase in their fat intake. At Food for the Active Dog.

Jokko Tennis Ball Cover Dog Toy

Jokko_Tennis_Ball_Cover.jpg

Our dogs love their tennis balls, whether rolling them down the stairs indoors or playing fetch outside. But some of us are not so crazy about the slobber that ends up all over the ball when we pick it up.

For the squeamish amongst us, this Jokko Tennis Ball Cover transforms the classic, lightweight tennis ball into a cleaner, slobber-resistant ball that will far outlast your every day tennis ball or its counterpart, the heavy and too bouncy rubber ball.

The brightly-colored Jokko Tennis Ball Covers are easier to see and are easy to wipe off. In Green, Orange and Purple.

Melatonin for Dog Anxiety Caused by Fireworks, Thunder

Melatonin2014.jpg

Fireworks are part of the July 4th celebration, and neighborhoods across the US are booming well into the night(s). As fun as this can be for people, the unexpected and erratic loud noises can terrify our pets.

Some "experts" discourage loving care and attention, suggesting the pet owner somehow reinforces this "behavior". Fear is an emotion, not a behavior, and your pets need your support during this difficult time just as a fellow human would.

If your pet is terrified, like ours are here at Supercool Pets HQ, dole out the hugs and try Melatonin available as an over-the-counter product.

According to Melatonin Supplements for Dogs are a safe and drug-free supplement for pets to relieve anxiety from loud noises such as fireworks and thunder:

Effectiveness of Melatonin for Dogs:

  • Melatonin helps regulate the sleeping pattern (circadian rhythm) of dogs. However it doesn't induce drowsiness.

  • It's used medically for the re-growth of hair in dogs with pattern baldness.

  • It acts as a sedative and calms your pet, and is used to treat stress issues such as accident trauma and anxiety.

  • It's also used to alleviate the fear of loud booming noises such as thunder or fireworks and in the treatment of conditions such as epilepsy. In the case of epileptic dogs, melatonin should be administered at night as it effectively reduces the risk of epileptic seizures at night.

  • Puppies have very sharp hearing and generally panic when they hear loud sounds. They tremble and hide under chairs or beds. It's advisable to use melatonin rather than tranquillizers or sedatives to combat this condition.

  • It has been known to help dogs overcome their fear of loud noises permanently.

  • Some dogs suffer from Canine Cognitive Dysfunction which is very similar to Alzheimer's disease in humans. Administration of melatonin helps them sleep better and become less restless
.

General Dosage Guidelines:

  • 1 mg for dogs weighing less than 10 lbs

  • 1.5 mg for dogs weighing between 10 to 25 lbs

  • 3 mg for dogs weighing between 26 to 100 lbs

  • 3 to 6 mg for dogs weighing over 100 lbs

As with all medications, please check with your vet before staring any treatment as your pet may have a pre-existing condition. At Melatonin.
