Cheering on Your Favorite Sports Teams: How Your Dogs Can Be a Part of the Fun

Posted by on Jan 21, 2016 in Blog, Pets & Animals | Comments Off on Cheering on Your Favorite Sports Teams: How Your Dogs Can Be a Part of the Fun

Although your pets cannot come with you to a sporting event, they can be part of the fun when you watch a game at home. There are several pet accessories that allow you and your pets to show your team spirit and team support. The following are just a few of the items you can buy for your dog or cat (most are meant for dogs though, sorry kitties!). Pet Collars Featuring Sports Teams If you want a simple accessory, like a Lakers dog collar or a Seattle Seahawks dog collar, then there are lots of pet collars featuring these and other sports teams. Most of these collars are woven and imprinted with a team logo or team-related theme. If you also need a collar for your cat, invest in one of the collars that have a break-away fastener. (The break-away fasteners help kitty avoid getting caught on any object that might leave him or her trapped, dangling or in danger, since cats have a predisposition of jumping and running over, up and around objects that could snag the collar.) Pet Harnesses and Leashes If you want the whole world to know that you support specific teams, you can also buy pet harnesses and leashes. That way, every time you take your dog (or cat) for a walk, people can see which team or teams you support. If you have more than one pet that you walk, you can show your support for more than one team by having each pet sport a harness and/or leash with a different team logo. This may also be a helpful identification tool if you have several pets that look exactly alike (e.g., four black labs of the same size, age and coloration). Pet Costumes, Sweaters and Clothing Accessories If you really want to go all out, there are lots of pet costumes, such as a football player and a cheerleader outfit in which you can dress your dog on game day (cats might not be so cooperative with dressing up, but you can try). In addition to pet costumes, there are dozens of doggy sweaters for dogs of all sizes, and they all feature at least one of your favorite teams. If it is too hot out where you live for a costume or sweater, you can always purchase a bandanna or doggy shoes for your pet that feature your preferred teams. (You can even get team pom-poms for your pet’s front paws!) Check out vendors such as Collar Kings for more information about suiting your pet up for the big...

Old Dogs, New Tricks: Help Your Senior Dog Cope With Arthritis

Posted by on Dec 21, 2015 in Blog | Comments Off on Old Dogs, New Tricks: Help Your Senior Dog Cope With Arthritis

Would you ever consider acupuncture treatment for your dog? It’s still an issue that researchers are learning more about, but some veterinarians believe that acupuncture can provide benefits for senior dogs. This guide will help you make a decision regarding your dog’s health and whether or not to pursue acupuncture. If your dog suffers from arthritis, he may be one of many that could use treatment to improve the condition before it gets worse. The Benefits of Acupuncture for Senior Dogs Releases natural endorphins and anti-inflammatories to make arthritis easier to deal with Insertion sites experience relaxation, which is beneficial if the site is the source of arthritic pain Improves blood flow Helps remove metabolic waste No potential side effects How Does Acupuncture Work on a Dog? Acupuncture is designed to encourage the body to engage in natural healing processes. The practitioner will insert needles into the body’s tissues, especially in certain areas where nerves and blood vessels come together. The process is not painful, even though the concepts of needle insertion and relaxation seem contrary to each other. Sometimes needle insertion is paired with pressure for additional benefits, including behavioral changes. Acupuncture & Arthritis As your dog ages, especially if he is bigger, you may notice that he has slowed down. Arthritis, also known as inflammation of the joints, occurs commonly in senior dogs. The condition can cause intense pain or make it impossible for your dog to stand and walk normally. In conjunction with normal visits to the vet, you may consider taking your dog to acupuncture treatments, at a location like Clayton Veterinary Associates. In the case that your dog is very big, some veterinarians do make house calls. This is also helpful if you have a dog that can’t walk or is very stressed out in new environments. Treatment tends to start out more frequently before slowing down. Even just one acupuncture session per week can result in a tremendous number of benefits for your pooch. Ultimately, the goal is to look for signs of improvement or resolution. Consistency is important when it comes to acupuncture treatment, and your senior dog will be walking more smoothly when you don’t miss appointments. Could this new trick be the key to caring for your old dog? While the research is yet to say for sure, the process could expand your dog’s life by preventing injuries that force many pet owners to put down their beloved...

2 Tips To Prepare For Your Dog’s Surgery

Posted by on Nov 26, 2015 in Blog, Pets & Animals | Comments Off on 2 Tips To Prepare For Your Dog’s Surgery

As with any small animal surgery, if your dog has surgery is coming up, you should make sure he or she is ready for the procedure. In addition to following your veterinarian’s advice, this guide should give you a few more tips to help prepare your pet for this surgery as well as prepare your home for your pets return. 1. Avoid Blood Thinners The first thing you should do is make sure that you do not feed your dog any blood-thinners. Blood-thinning ingredients are everywhere, from medications to foods, and are necessary for your dog’s overall health. Blood-thinners help keep your pet’s blood pumping throughout his or her cardiovascular system and prevents dangerous coagulation. The function of blood-thinners is good, as mentioned, but you do not want your dog’s blood to be too thin during surgery, as it might interfere with healing or lead to too much blood loss. Avoid some of the following blood-thinning ingredients: Turmeric Omega 3 Krill oil Garlic or garlic supplements Maritime pine bark Bromelain Wobenzime You can talk to your veterinarian about other possible blood-thinners your pet should avoid. 2.   Prepare Your Home For After-Surgery Recovery You should do your best to prepare your home for your dog after his or her surgery. This is an important step because your pup will need your attention while he or she is recovering, which may interfere with your ability to attend to other details. Consider the following: Keep your dog’s resting area as clean as you can.  Purchase a buster collar or a post-surgery jacket to prevent your pet from biting his or her stitches. If your dog must use a crate after surgery, allow him or her to sit in the crate a few times before surgery to get used to it. Place non-skid carpeting wherever your dog will be walking to prevent slips.  Lower ring tones, alarms, and other devices that might wake your dog up when he or she is resting.  Place drapes that you cannot see through over your windows to prevent your pet from becoming excited by things going on outside your home. You can talk to your pet care specialist about other things that you can do to make sure that your home is ready for your dog after his or her surgery. As you can see, there are some things you should do before your dog goes in for his or her surgery and after-care tips to consider as...

Tooth Brushing Tips For Your Cat

Posted by on Oct 27, 2015 in Blog, Pets & Animals | Comments Off on Tooth Brushing Tips For Your Cat

Healthy teeth and gums are just as important for cats as they are for humans. Poor dental hygiene can lead to painful infections and tooth loss, which can severely sicken your cat or make it difficult for them to eat. Part of good feline dental health is regular tooth brushing. Make time to tend to your kitty’s teeth at least once a week. The following tips can help you do so successfully. Tip #1: Gather Your Supplies You don’t need much to brush your cat’s teeth. A brush made for feline mouths works best, as does toothpaste formulated for cats. Do not use toothpaste made for humans. Tip #2: Start Slowly The best time to start is when your cat is a kitten, but even older cats can adjust to tooth brushing. Start slowly by first massaging kitty’s gums with your fingertips. Attempt to place a finger in their mouth when they are relaxed, such as after a major petting session. Once your cat stops fighting your finger, begin placing a small amount of the toothpaste on the finger while massaging the gums. This helps your cat become adjusted to the flavor. The next step is to introduce the toothbrush. The style that slips onto the tip of your finger works well, since your cat has already become accustomed to your finger in their mouth. Tip #3: Examine Before Each Brushing Session It’s important to examine your cat’s mouth before you begin brushing in earnest – you don’t want to inflame any irritations. Pull your cat’s lips up gently and examine the gums for any redness or inflammation. Also, make sure the inside of the lips, the teeth, and the tongue look healthy. If you notice any problems, stop and call your local cat hospital to schedule an appointment. Tip #4: Brush Properly Cat teeth aren’t difficult to brush. Focus on rubbing the toothbrush on the outer, upper, and inner surfaces of the teeth. If your cat is relatively laid back, you can also lightly brush the gums. Make sure to have a water dish nearby so your cat can get a drink after the tooth brushing session. Tip #5: Follow Up While brushing your cat’s teeth will go a long way toward healthy teeth and gums, you still need to schedule regular appointments with your vet for a more thorough teeth cleaning. Your vet can also help you perfect your brushing technique to match your cat’s dental needs, since some cats may already have mild gum disease and require a tender touch. For more information about brushing your cat’s teeth, contact a company like Arlington Cat Clinic...

Up And Running: The Healing Light Of Cold Laser Therapy

Posted by on Sep 24, 2015 in Blog, Pets & Animals | Comments Off on Up And Running: The Healing Light Of Cold Laser Therapy

If your dog or cat’s mobility has declined as a result of degenerative joint disease, you should ask your veterinary clinic about a therapeutic treatment that is rising in popularity and improving the quality of life for canine and feline patients. Cold laser therapy has been utilized for years in human medicine, and the positive results have prompted veterinarians to see the light and embrace this noninvasive healing procedure. What Is Cold Laser Therapy? Cold laser therapy is also known as Class IV laser therapy and low-level laser therapy. Cold laser therapy involves targeting the area on the pet’s body that requires treatment with a beam of light that emits from a hand piece. This hand piece is connected to the base unit, from which levels of intensity are programmed to suit the target area and the medical condition that is being treated. How Does Cold Laser Therapy Work? The laser pulse frequency and the amount of time that the laser is aimed at the target area are calculated specifically for your pet by the veterinarian. As the laser’s infrared light is trained on your pet’s body, it generates a photobiomodulation, which essentially means that photons from the light penetrate the tissues and alter the cells’ chemistry to promote healing at the cellular level. The result is an increase in blood circulation, accelerated healing and decreases in pain and inflammation. What Are the Benefits of Cold Laser Therapy? The primary benefit of cold laser therapy is that the treatment is tolerated exceptionally well by dogs and cats. For most patients, minimal to no restraint is necessary. Most pets become very relaxed during therapy sessions. Other advantages to cold laser therapy include: There are no needles because no injections or intravenous catheters are needed. There are no drugs that must be administered for cold laser therapy. The area to be treated does not need to be shaved. There are no adverse side effects from cold laser therapy, such as skin burns that can result from heat lasers. The option of cold laser therapy has become a boon for cats that suffer from the discomfort of arthritis since many of the pain relieving medications that are prescribed for dogs pose serious health risks for cats. What Conditions Can Be Treated with Cold Laser Therapy? Reducing the discomfort and improving mobility in patients with skeletomuscular conditions, such as degenerative joint disease, arthritis and hip dysplasia, are the most common uses for cold laser therapy. Cold laser therapy is also helpful in such cases as: Acceleration of healing and reduction of postoperative pain following surgical and dental procedures Treatment of sprains, strains and other muscle injuries Relieving back and neck pain Treatment of intervertebral disk disease Healing of wounds, hot spots and lick granulomas What Does Cold Laser Therapy Entail? The treatment plan for cold laser therapy is determined by your pet’s condition and by your pet’s response to the therapy. When cold laser therapy is initiated, multiple sessions must be performed during the first days to weeks of treatment. Once your pet demonstrates improvement, then the frequency of cold laser therapy sessions is weaned down, gradually extending the durations in between sessions. Each session lasts only a few minutes, and it can be performed on an outpatient basis, eliminating the stress that...

Heartworm In Dogs: Should You Be Concerned?

Posted by on Sep 5, 2015 in Blog | Comments Off on Heartworm In Dogs: Should You Be Concerned?

Heartworm should be on the top of your list of things you want to prevent your beloved canine companion from getting. It is a devastating parasite that can burrow into the heart, lungs and circulatory system of your pet, damaging organs and leading to death. It’s spread primarily through mosquitoes. Fortunately for many pet owners in the U.S. and Canada, heartworm isn’t all that common in colder climates, and is relatively easy to prevent with regular oral treatments for your dog. When do you need to worry about heartworm, and what can you do to prevent it? Heartworm Cases and Outdoor Temperatures Heartworms require certain conditions to live and spread, so they are more commonly found in warmer climates. To complete their life cycles, the worms have to have 45 days of temperatures over 57 degrees Fahrenheit (14 degrees Celsius). They also must have about two weeks of temperatures over 80 degrees. This means that those in Canada and the northern U.S. states, especially in the winter, are less likely to see heartworm, but it can happen. If the weather has been warmer or if a pet from another area comes to visit, your dog can become infected with heartworms. Those who live in a warmer part of the U.S., especially the southeastern U.S., are at greater risk of heartworm infection. It’s important to have regular tests for the worm and give your pet a preventative medication as prescribed by your vet.  Preventing Heartworm Heartworm cases are low in some parts of the U.S., but they are dramatically reduced among pet owners who use a monthly preventative treatment. These oral medications can be given to puppies as young as 6 weeks old, though some types of heartworm prevention are recommended for adult dogs only. Talk to your veterinarian about the best type of medication for your pet. Depending on where you live and the health of your pet, some vets may recommend that you only give preventative medicine during the warmer months of the year. This makes sense if your area does not get above 80 degrees for at least part of the year. It’s also wise to reduce the mosquito population as much as you can on your own property, as mosquitoes transmit the worms.  Treating Heartworm If the worst case happens, and your pet has a positive test result for heartworm, your veterinarian will diagnose medications that can be used to kill the worms and heal the damage they have done. These medications usually include: An agent to kill the worms. A steroid to help heal damage. An antibiotic, because when heartworms die, they can release a bacteria that can be toxic. Killing off the worms can take its toll on your dog’s body, so most vets will run liver and kidney function tests to make sure they can handle the stress.  For most dog owners, regardless of where they live, the risk of heartworms is greater than the cost and hassle of giving preventative medication. Talk to your vet to find out which medications are recommended and what protocol is right for your dog. Contact a center like Pet Medical Center – Full Service Veterinary Care for more...

4 Signs Your Horse Needs To See A Dentist

Posted by on Aug 14, 2015 in Blog, Pets & Animals | Comments Off on 4 Signs Your Horse Needs To See A Dentist

Some horse people say that without the hoof, there is no horse. It can also be said that without good teeth, there is no horse. Your equine relies on good teeth to properly process their feed and hay and won’t be happy under the saddle if their mouth is in pain. Here are 4 signs your horse needs a dental examination. 1. The horse begins losing weight. Weight loss in equines my be due to worms, poor feed, and physical disease. If your horse has been on a regular worming schedule, the feed hasn’t changed and they are otherwise in good condition, they may simply need their teeth floated. Although this issue is more common in older horses, equines of all ages get spurs, nubs, and uneven wear on the surfaces of the teeth. Acorns or other large seeds can lodge in teeth and create infection. There are any number of tooth-related issues that cause enough pain to make your horse stop eating. 2. They make hay wads. If you start noticing little egg-sized packets of wet, half-eaten hay around the water trough and hay pile, your horse may not have enough good tooth surface to properly chew and swallow their forage. This can occur with fresh grasses as well. It’s normal for some horses to dunk their hay in their water, which is fine. But suspect bad teeth when the small hay wads appear. They will be of similar size and shape since your horse is creating them while trying to eat and they take on the shape of the individual horse’s mouth. 3. Your horse cannot get comfortable with a bit. You may try a snaffle, a hackamore, and a humane curb bit to help your horse find one they like, but your horse hates them all. The ears go back when you try to place the bit in the mouth. The horse jerks its head up with the slightest pressure of the bit, or even rears up when the reins are pulled. Wolf teeth are often the cause of bit pain. These are tiny vestigial teeth that appear on the gums and normally don’t develop into anything larger than a corn kernel. But they cause horses a great deal of pain when they’re pressed on by fingers or bit. Other dental issues will also cause problems with the horse accepting and working with a bit, so have this sign checked out right away. 4. You notice a bad smell coming from the horse’s mouth. Just as in humans, horses can get abscesses and nasty infections of the teeth and gums. If you notice a foul odor from your horse’s mouth, make sure to have an equine dentist take a look to check for any dental issues that may be the cause. Some odors may be due to a piece of food rotting or even a gastric issue, but your vet or equine dentistry professional will be able to sort it out and get your horse’s breath smelling sweet again. If you notice any of these things with your horse, visit an equine dentistry, such as Horizon Equine Veterinary Services,...

3 Reasons Why Your Indoor Cat Still Needs Vaccines

Posted by on Jul 24, 2015 in Blog, Pets & Animals | Comments Off on 3 Reasons Why Your Indoor Cat Still Needs Vaccines

Do you have a cat who lives completely indoors and never ventures outside? If so, you may be wondering whether the cat really needs to get annual vaccination treatments. Annual vaccines are common for dogs and for indoor/outdoor cats, as vaccines protect the animals from a wide range of threats, including heartworm, rabies, a host of diseases, and even fleas. However, many indoor-only cat owners wonder whether vaccines are really needed for their animals. After all, if the cat never goes outside, it will likely never be exposed to any of those risks. Here are three reasons why your indoor-only cat still needs to get vaccination treatments: The rabies vaccine is legally mandatory In most places, if you own a dog or a cat, it is legally required that the animal be vaccinated for rabies. Now, the police probably aren’t going to show up at your door because you didn’t vaccinate your indoor cat. However, in the very small chance that your cat did catch rabies and did bite someone, you could face some serious legal issues. And it is possible for an indoor cat to get rabies, especially if you live in a rural or heavily-wooded location. A bat could fly down the chimney. A mouse, rat, or other rodent could find it’s way into your home. While not likely, it is possible for a rabies-carrying animal to get into a home. Considering how inexpensive and convenient it is to get the vaccine, it usually makes sense to go ahead and do it. Vaccines prevent a number of diseases The catch-all “booster” shot is meant to prevent a number of dangerous and potentially life-threatening diseases. These can include herpes, feline leukemia, and other harmful illnesses. Kittens can be especially vulnerable to these illnesses. Your adult cat may not need a booster shot every years, but chances are good that your vet will want your cat to get the shot every few years. If you have a kitten, though, your vet will likely tell you that the booster shot is highly important for keeping the cat healthy. Indoor cats can still get heartworm Heartworm is very dangerous for cats and, contrary to the opinion of many, it’s still a threat for indoor cats. Heartworm is carried by mosquitoes, and mosquitoes are very capable of finding their way inside a home. All it takes is a door cracked open or a small hole in a window screen for a couple of mosquitoes to enter your house. If the mosquito bites your cat, your feline friend could be exposed to heartworm. An annual vaccine is a great way to eliminate the heartworm threat. For more information, talk to your veterinarian (like those at Cat Care Clinic). They can help you decide which vaccines are needed and how often your cat should get...
