Tips for Caring for Dogs in Hot Weather

With excessive summer heat comes danger for dogs.  Owners need to be aware of summer temperatures and how they should care for their dogs.   Veterinarians say pushing dogs beyond their limit in the heat can be fatal.

Here are some TIPS:

  • Remember to exercise your dog in the mornings or evenings during very hot weather.
  • Provide plenty of drinking water during the summer, especially if you go out with your dog in the heat.
  • Never leave your dog in your vehicle during hot weather.  This can be fatal.
  • Remember that your dog will try to please you and will just keep going, even to the point of exhaustion.

Signs that your dog might be overheating:

  • Excessive panting
  • Gums get bright red
  • Disorientation

Finally, if you do not pay attention, your dog can collapse from the heat.  Vets say if your dog is experiencing these symptoms to give it a cold water bath with a hose.  If  symptoms persist you are urged to get to your local veterinarian.

Support Laws to Prevent Antifreeze Poisoning in Dogs

Approximately 1400 children and 10,000 cats and dogs die annually from antifreeze poisoning.  Antifreeze tastes sweet and it takes no more than a teaspoon for a fatality.

But something can be done about this that would save many lives of children and pets each year.  Legislation is currently being consdered in many states that would require antifreeze makers to add a bittering agent to antifreeze products and engine coolants.  Supposedly, this one step would only cost a few cents extra per gallon and it could make an amazing difference for the good.

Some states already have this law, including California, Maine, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Tennessee, Virginia, Vermont and Washington.  Contact your state legislature if your state isn’t listed here to see what is being done and how you can make your voice heard.  For your child, dog or other pets.

Elk Antler Chews – Safer Alternative for Dog Chews Than Rawhide

Dogs love to chew … that’s a fact.  But there are some products on the market that really can be dangerous for your dog, even fatal.  Most every dog has had a rawhide chew at one time or another but you might want to think twice before you hand your dog another piece of rawhide.  Here’s some info you might not know and it could save your dog’s life.

Rawhide is the inner hide from a horse or cow that has been chemically treated to remove the hair and other  materials.  It is sometimes left in its natural state or made into various shapes.  Dogs love it.  But it is quite often the cause of choking or intestinal blockage seen in dogs.  Not only do dogs bite off large pieces and swallow them unchewed but supposedly the rawhide can swell in your dog’s stomach causing a blockage.  These can cause severve gastric problems and even death.

So, what to do when you have a dog that really loves to chew.  Try Elk Antler Dog chews.   Elk Antler Chews are naturally shed antlers that won’t splinter like other hard chews, and they’re great for promoting healthy teeth and gums. They’re a 100% natural source of over 40 essential nutrients promoting strong bones and healthy joints.  They are available in different sizes for different sized dogs.

Find if Pet Products Have Toxic Chemicals Before Buying

Healthy-stuff-code

We are very excited to let you know about a site we just discovered called Healthy Stuff.  It’s a site that gives you immediate access to research done on Pet products and Toys, including pet beds.  The site is extremely easy to use and the information is presented in a simple coding system with graphics even a dog could understand.  It shows which products contain lead, arsenic, cadmium, chlorine, mercury and bromine and to what degree it is present in that product.

At HealthyStuff.org you can search by product, by brand or level of concern, for example, your concern of lead in a product. There’s even a spot to “tweet” the results you’ve found so you can quickly share the info with your contacts and friends.

It is certainly no wonder that so many pets develop cancer these days, with all the dangerous chemicals in products pets use on a daily basis.  But with this website, we all can benefit by choosing products and toys for our dogs, cats and other pets that we know have the least amount of toxic chemicals.  Please be sure to spread this info on to friends and family.

Pet Summary – for Dog’s Health & Your Peace of Mind

Pet-Summary-card2

Hey, doggeros … just heard Mik talking about this Pet Summary thingie .. I was bad sick the other day and Mik was so happy he had used Pet Summary.  Your caretaker gets a card with all all your important info, shots, etc, on a card to carry in their wallet.  But we were traveling and Mik forgot to keep his card with him this time.   But with Pet Summary, they keep your info on the website so Mik just printed out a copy to show to the Vet.  Actually, I guess the vets can just go there themselves and get the info with the login info your master provides.

The Pet Summary card displays:

  • A picture of your pet
  • Your contact information
  • All of your pet’s medical conditions, allergies, and current medications
  • Your pet’s daily routine and dietary requirements
  • Veterinary and Emergency contact names and information

The PetSum Card helps you:

  • Easily share useful information with pet sitters and other caregivers
  • Quickly provide current and important information in an emergency
  • Travel more safely with your pet
