Save Your Dog's Life: Choking

  Choking is a frequent emergency situation that you can encounter with your pet. Most dogs can chew on almost everything, including bones, toys, sticks, and plastic (to name a few! ), which can get stuck in the mouth's palate or windpipe - knowing how to react to a choking dog could save your pet's life, as you might not have enough time to rush to the vet. Are you aware of what to do if your dog chokes? It is critical that you seek veterinary assistance immediately, as the dog will suffocate. Choking Symptoms • Panic / hysteria • Difficulty breathing • Pawing at the mouth • Choking/hacking noises • Blue lips or tongue • Unresponsive or unaware dog What to do: • Remain vigilant - a choking animal can panic and bite. • Remain calm; your fear will spread to your dog; talk in a firm, soothing tone. • Open the dog's mouth with both hands - one on the upper jaw and the other on the lower. • Grasping the dog's jaws, tuck the dog's lips between the teeth and your fingerti

Home Made Dog Food

 There are cats and dogs in the FDA's "dog food recall." The dog food recall has prompted many of us to find other ways to protect our animals from contaminated food. But as we went through this process, it changed our way of thinking about feeding animals. Is there a better and healthier option than the grocery store providing the dog before the recall? Now that the "dust" of the memory has settled, how should we proceed with raising dogs? At first, I thought the safest way to resolve this issue during a dog food recall was to create a 100% homemade diet for my dog. I reviewed homemade dog food recipes from the Internet, library books, and local bookstores and discussed my ideas with our vet. My vet recommends considering nutritional factors when making homemade dog food to ensure the dog is fed a balanced diet. I agree. However, during the dog food recall, I felt hopeless. If my dog ​​is completely safe from troubling ingredients, I am willing to make some dietary mistakes. My vet's office assured me that the dog food they sell in the office is safe to recall and is nutritious and balanced. If the office wants to make suggestions and is a trustworthy brand, I realize they will make suggestions. There is no question, but the dog food industry is profitable. I want to know, is their food the best solution for me and my dog? I swear I will learn more.


I decided to continue research, and this is the answer I came up with:


1. Making your dog food is a realistic option. Today, books and the Internet are full of homemade dog food recipes, but there are some important considerations to keep in mind. Certain foods eaten by humans can be harmful to dogs, and if enough ingredients are consumed, you can even kill them. Most of us know that chocolate is toxic to dogs, but do you also know that onions, large amounts of garlic, nutmeg, grapes, xylitol (an artificial sweetener), unripe tomatoes, nuts, and seeds, and walnuts can be deadly to dogs? Before cooking for animals, research and pay attention to your ingredients. You can make your own nutritious and safe homemade dog food and dog snacks, and you can avoid low-quality by-products and chemicals in many batch-produced dog foods. Cooking for your dog can be very good.


2. There you can buy a lot of safe and healthy food for your dog. Here are the things to look for: First, check the Food and Drug Administration's recall list for dog food. If your food isn't on the list to make sure there won't be any problems in the future, the FDA 2007 recall has a simple solution: Avoid listing foods containing wheat gluten or rice protein powder in the ingredients list! These are two problematic ingredients found in products from China. Learn to understand the labels of foods that use quality ingredients. Avoid using chemical preservatives and artificial flavors and colors.


3. Diversity is not only the joy of life. It can also help your pet to be safer. While reading articles, listening to news outlets, and solving this problem by participating in joint broadcast forums on this topic, I heard some clear and loud echoes: many experts believe that one of the reasons dogs and cats get through food that is contaminated. Only one kind of food, but sickness and no recovery. In these cases, cats and dogs are given food recall again and again. If it is a contaminated product from China, it can cause kidney failure. Looking to the future, I think it's a good idea to supplement my trusty dog ​​food with my homemade food. This gave my dog ​​a breed that now seems very important. Sometimes I mix homemade food with their dry meal, sometimes I don't. Sometimes I give them cooked food myself.


4. Snacks - My dog ​​likes to eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. My website has a list of simple and healthy snacks that are safe for dogs and other dog snack recipes that don't include any of the above—listed toxic ingredients. I hope we can learn some important things after the dog food recall in 2007. I hope we can lobby for stricter animal nutrition regulations. By taking more preventive regulatory measures and our own decision to treat our animals in different ways

Cat Urinary Blockage - How to Spot, Treat and Prevent It

 Boy, I learned a valuable lesson. I took the cat to the vet once because it was very ill. I didn't notice anything wrong until he stopped acting like his jovial self. When we got to the animal hospital, he was dying, but boy, I'm glad I got there on time. This experience taught me the importance of early diagnosis. It's important to detect early signs of cat urine obstruction before the problem develops beyond repair. The symptoms of obstruction in cats are changes in urination frequency, painful urination, no urination or no blood in the urine at all, and so on. Your cat can nurse its genitals and express its pain when it cries. Your cat can avoid urinating in the litter box because he associates the litter box with painful urination. Obstruction of the cat's urethra can also lead to urinary incontinence in your cat as the bladder is full and blocks the leakage of urine around it. If your cat stops urinating completely, it is important to send him to the doctor immedi

Why Home Made Food For Pets Is Safe?

 Have you ever thought of feeding a furry friend canned food? It is complicated to make sure that canned food is safe for them. Food can be poisoned by arsenic, rat poison, or melamine. You don't want your pet to be harmed, of course. This is why homemade recipes are the safer choice. However, some careless pet owners have turned the care of animals over to untrained neighbors. Of course, they cannot take care of your pet as well as a boarding house dog.   Also, you can give them a variety of homemade treats when you return home. Making pet food at home is not only safe but also inexpensive. Also, you can add flavors according to your pet's valid preferences. And only the owner knows what their furry friends want. As an owner, you take care of your pets and hope to provide them with the best nutrition. However, the best does not mean expensive, and it only means health and safety. For this, you need a suitable plastic container for consumption. First, it must be a sufficiently

Cat Food Facts You Should Be Aware Of

 Let's be honest. Urinary problems in cats can make you feel frustrated because it makes your cat uncomfortable. If the diet is unhealthy, your cat isn't drinking enough water, or your cat is sick, there could be a urinary tract infection. If you feel notice that your cat is not urinating or notice that you are urinating more often than usual, these are some of the first signs of urinary problems. Also, if an odor in the cat's urine could indicate that the cat has a bacterial infection, pay close attention to the cat's behavior and urine smell to detect changes. To solve the cat's urination problem, the first step you should take is to take your cat to the vet for some tests. The vet can determine if the problem is caused by old age, illness, etc. If your cat is ill, it may be necessary to undergo treatment right away. Sometimes behavioral problems can cause the cat to urinate in inappropriate places (such as carpets or kitchens), such as when the cat sprays urine i
