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

Why is Home Made Dog Food Best For Your Dog?

 Do you remember the animal feed recall in 2007? Melamine and cyanuric acid were found in several brands of top-shelf wet dog food. Plastic is made from melamine. Cyanuric acid is used to chlorinate the pool. Neither is approved for pet food. The FDA found these chemicals in imported wheat gluten and rice protein concentrates used to make pets. Eating it can cause kidney failure.


Officially, 226 cats and dogs died, but the death toll was much higher, according to reports. This alone is enough to scare your homemade dog food, but if not, just read the ingredients of a typical canned dog food.


For example, do you know what wheat gluten is? According to the American Association of Feed Control Officials (AAFCO), "when the wheat is washed to remove starch, the remaining tough, viscous nitrogenous substance". It is a cheap by-product of human food processing, has almost no nutritional value and is mainly used as a binding agent.


When you buy commercially available pet foods, you not only have to worry about accidentally adding certain "secret" chemicals to your food that can kill your dog, but you also have to deal with the challenge of multiple ingredients. Unknown people, many of them have no value other than adding value.


Depending on the type of food you give your dog, nutritional deficiencies can cause him to slowly starve before your eyes. If you cook your own food, don't worry. You know what's in his food. You know their qualities. You know their nutritional value. Homemade dog food will go a long way in helping your dog have a long, important and healthy life.

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

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.
