    How to puppy proof your home

    by james on 15 Sep 2021
    First-time dog owners can forget to pet-proof their houses, but it’s an important step before ever bringing a dog home. Here are a few tips. How to puppy proof your home Every soon-to-be pet parent is excited to bring a new companion home, but not all dog owners remember to pet-proof their houses before Fido arrives. Whether you are bringing home a puppy or adopting an adult dog,  protecting your pet from household hazards and safeguarding your breakable belongs is an important step toward becoming a pet owner. Before you go to pick up your dog, take a walk-through of your house to assess any potential hazards for your pet and items you need to move out of his reach. First, sweep for unsafe objects such as electrical wires, sharp objects and small items such as loose coins, medications or game pieces that your dog could swallow. If you are up to it, examine each room from a “dog’s eye view” by moving on your hands and knees. This will allow you to see any hidden hazards that you may have missed when looking from above. Once you have checked for obvious hazards, evaluate other potentially harmful objects that may be in your home. Some house plants are poisonous for pets, so be sure to research any that will be within Fido’s reach to make sure they are safe in the case of canine consumption. Move any plants that are toxic for dogs, or that you simply want to protect from potential damage, to a higher area. You will also need to relocate any toxic chemicals such as household cleaners and medications inside a puppy-proof cabinet or to a high shelf. After you’ve made your home safe for your new pet, it is important to protect your own belongings from being potential destruction by a feisty pup. It is worth investing in a dog-proof trash can to keep your companion from creating a mess or eating garbage that could make him sick. Some dogs are notorious chewers, so keep your dresser and closet shut tight and any shoes, belts or other chewable objects locked safely away. A rule of thumb is to view anything as a potential chew toy to your new dog, and to move anything that could be damaged to a high shelf, shut drawer or other safe spot. It can be daunting to pet-proof your house before bringing him a new dog home, but the results are well worth the effort. By taking the time to remove any objects that could harm your pet and secure your personal belongings from potential damage, you can ensure your dog has a smooth and safe transition to his new home.

    Why is my cat urinating outside the litter box?

    by jennifer on 03 Sep 2021
    Most cat owners have struggled with their pet not using the litter box, but this can be your cat’s way of saying something is wrong. Why is my cat urinating outside the litter box? At some point, most cat owners struggle with their companion urinating outside of the litter box. Though this can be frustrating, it helps to know this unusual behavior is one way your pet communicates to you that something is wrong, either medically or emotionally. Physically ailments such as urinary tract infections are one of the common causes of inappropriate urination. There are many other medical conditions that can cause your cat to feel uncomfortable, including bladder stones, kidney disease and infections. Any problem impacting his kidneys or liver in particular can cause your cat to drink more water and, therefore, need more urgent trips to the litter box. With this change in his schedule, he may not be able to reach the litter box in time, or it may become dirty faster, leading your cat to do his business elsewhere until the litter is cleaned. Even if the physical discomfort is not directly related to your pet’s bladder, he may start urinating in inappropriate places due to other physical conditions, such as diabetes or arthritis. Senior pets are especially prone to problems with the litter box as their mobility and cognitive function decrease. It may simply be harder for older cats to get into the litter box, or they may become confused as their brain function changes during their senior years.  There are also non-physical conditions that can make Kitty urinate outside of his litter box. Feeling stressed or anxious can change a range of your pet’s behaviors, including where he uses the bathroom. Even small changes, such as a visitor in the house, can cause cats to feel stressed, and larger shifts such as adding a new pet to the household or moving can certainly trigger unusual behavior. Some cats will also mark spots in the household with urine when they feel threatened by a new pet or person. If your cat suddenly starts urinating outside of the litter box, take this is a sign that something may be wrong. If the behavior does not change, take him to the veterinarian for a check-up to rule out any physical ailments. If he is physically healthy, you will then need to address the stressor that is causing your pet’s behavioral problems with his litter box. Be sure to keep the box clean and in a private section of your house so it is inviting to your pet. Try different types of litter, as some pick pets have a texture preference. If you have a senior pet who is struggling with mobility, try a tray with a lower lip and open top. Block off any parts of the house where your cat has been making a habit of urinating, or place a litter box directly over the spot he has made his makeshift bathroom. You can also use odor-neutralizing sprays to remove the smell in those spots, as this can encourage your cat to continue urinating there. When introducing a new pet to a multi-cat household, place multiple litter boxes around the house to encourage your cats to use their litter boxes.

    How to help dogs with arthritis

    by jennifer on 24 Aug 2021
    Arthritis cannot be cured, but you can help manage your pet’s symptoms. Here are a few tips to help senior dogs experiencing arthritis.  How to help dogs with arthritis Arthritis is a common problem in dogs, particularly as they age. Though there is no cure for this common condition, recognizing the signs of arthritis early can help you manage your dog’s symptoms and slow progression of the disease, improving his quality of life well into his senior years. Known as osteoarthritis or Degenerative Joint Disease, arthritis is caused as the cartilage that acts as a buffer between bones slowly breaks down over time, leading to inflamed and painful joint. Through injuries and stress can lead to the condition, arthritis is often the result of wear over time. Not only can it be painful for your pet, but arthritis can also lead to decreased range of mobility. The condition can develop in any joint, but is primarily found in dog’s legs and lower backs, which receive the most use over the course of Fido’s lifetime. It can be difficult to recognize the signs of arthritis early, especially because our pets are experts at hiding pain. However, catching the condition early in its progression can help pet parents manage its effects and improve their dog’s quality of like. Early signs of degenerative joint disease include stiffness and difficulty getting up, lethargy, weight gain, behavioral changes such as irritability, a pained response to being touched, and difficulty using the bathroom due to decreased mobility. If your middle- to senior-aged pet is experiencing symptoms that you think are arthritis, take him to the veterinarian for a joint examination. Though there is no cure for osteoarthritis, you can help slow its progression through exercise and joint-supporting supplements. Keep your dog lightly to moderately active as his joints allow helps him maintain a healthy weight, which reduces stress on his joints. Some pets with limited mobility enjoy swimming, which provides exercise without putting pressure on the joints. Dietary changes include providing Fido with supplements to help reduce inflammation and slow the progression of joint damage. Glucosamine and chondroitin are both well-known supplements that reduce inflammation and increase cartilage water retention, which helps cushion the joints and make your pet more comfortable. You can also make adjustments to your pet’s daily routine that make him more comfortable, such as providing him extra, soft bedding and minimizing his need to jump or go up and down stairs. Dogs experiencing moderate or severe arthritis may also benefit from pain medication to manage symptoms. Most pet owners use Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs, or NSAIDs, to treat chronic pain in their dogs. However, this group of drugs can have other deleterious effects when used over a long period of time and should be reserved for dogs experiencing significant arthritis pain. Consult your veterinarian before treating arthritis with NSAIDs. Though arthritis cannot be cured, there are several ways to manage your companion’s symptoms so he can live a more comfortable life. Help him maintain a healthy weight to reduce stress on high joints through diet and exercise. Joint supplements can also help reduce inflammation that causes arthritis pain and help slow the progression of the disease.
