CAT TIP OF THE DAY

Treats, Snacks, and People Food

Cats love treats! But be sensible. Dispense treats sparingly, one at a time. For added fun and exercise, train your cat to jump for his treats. Many cats learn very quickly to leap and catch the flying morsels in midair. Make sure your cat never samples the following:

  • onions, onion powder, or any food containing these
  • alcoholic beverages-a big no-no, not even a drop!
  • macadamia nuts
  • leaves and stems of potatoes and tomatoes
  • coffee, tea, coffee beans, and coffee grounds
  • chocolate
  • hops (ingredient in beer)

A diet consisting entirely of human foods is not a complete or balanced diet for your cat.

PET TIP OF THE DAY

Teaching 'Drop It' Command

If your dog likes to pick up everything from socks at home to cigarette buts on the street, you need to address this behavior. Do not try to rip, pull, or pry his jaws open to retrieve the object. This will make him think that his find is of great interest to you. Instead, leash your dog and take him somewhere where he'll be tempted, or, set him up by hiding a smelly food wrapper in a boot. Then, when he picks up a forbidden item, command 'drop it' and give his leash a sharp jerk, puling him toward you.

When he's done what you've asked, praise him and engage him in his favorite activity. If he doesn't give his find up, spray your finger with Bitter Apple and touch his gum before you issue 'drop it' command.

PET ARTICLE OF THE DAY

Basic Training: Jumping

There are many flashy tricks your dog can perform if he learns to jump on command. You must proceed slowly and build his confidence. It is very important that he never finds out that there's an alternative to the jump. The easiest way to start your dog jumping is by placing a board in a door way. Here the situation is set up so that if the dog wants to get from one room to another, he will have to go over the board. He cannot go around it or under it. He cannot find another entrance into that room in the first place--you will.

Jump Through a Hoop

Place you hoop in the doorway. The principle is as follows: the dog may not avoid the hoop to get to you or elsewhere. Each practice session, give him a warm-up with the hoop quite low before you ask him to jump as high as he is able. More

I was wondering if you could maybe help me understand as to why my Pekingese died.
He just died two days a go and I'm still having trouble with it). Well, he was ten years old and from what I have been reading I see?that is about the average lifespan of this breed but I need to understand something more. He had this strange habit of chewing on things such as pillowcases, sheets, and blankets, and even his own fur.? For some reason, he never did this as a puppy but grew the habit as he became older. We had tried so hard to get him to stop but he just wouldn't. He had all the attention of the three of us living here so there is no way he did it out of depression or sadness.?Well, a few days a go after we had given him a bath we layed him on a blanket as we dryed him off (as we have done many times before and never had problems with it.) We had to leave him for a few minutes, when we came back we dicovered that he had swallowed a peiece of string that he had unraveled from the blanket that he was on.

Teach Your Cat New Tricks
You can teach your cat all kinds of tricks, both simple and complex, depending how much time and energy you wich to spend in training. Teach your cat to beg, fetch, or walk on leash. To teach your cat how to beg, hold the treat between your fingers and show it to him. Make sure he knows the treat is in your hand and smells it. But do not giv it to him yet. Raise your hand slowly above his hand, making him follow and sit up on his haunches; when he starts to ...

Few areas of matted hair
<a href="http://www.tkqlhce.com/click-2761923-10481673" target="_top" > <img src="http://www.tqlkg.com/image-2761923-10481673" width="125" height="125" alt="" border="0" style="float:left;padding:10px;" /></a> We have a Bolognese Puppy...will be a year in Dec. We bath about every 2 or 3 weeks. My husband usually does this and I brush and comb daily. Clean his eyes, etc. We take to a groomer every month or so to have nails, ears, etc. trimmed. First time we took to a groomer...I had asked them to just trim a little. When I returned he was shaved! Looked like a poodle cut. In the summer did not think anything of it...but, certainly, did not like the cut. ... From my experience with Golden Retrievers, I advise you to take care of the problem while the clumps of "dreadlocks" are small. It will only escalate the more active the dog, and the more shedding they have to do. Don't try to cut them out until you are absolutely sure you clear the skin which will pull outwards with the clumps of matted hair. We have tried detanglers when the clumps were small, but have had better luck with just spending time seperating them by hand with our fingers. I say let the professionals deal with the problem if it gets out of hand. Good luck to you.

Old Dog and a New Puppy
We have a 6 year old male dog at home and we just got a new puppy which is a female and 8 weeks old. We brought her home and our male dog will not leave her alone. he is not mean he want to play and he sniffs her and tries to lick her and he will hump the air and lick the floor where she just gets up from. I don't know what to do to stop him. He hasn't been neutered in hopes that someday we could have pups. Other than that they get along, the puppy just wants to cuddle up with him but he just won't leave it alone long enough. What should I do? Thanks, Audrey.

My Princess "Kaycee"
On Saturday July 19th my world turned upside down. I lost my beautiful baby. Kaycee is a yellow Labrador. She was only 2 years old. I cannot find peace or sleep until I can figure out what happened to her. Is there anyone out there that could give me any ideas or input it would be so greatly appreciated.This is what happened. On about July 9th we noticed that she had less energy ( it was also over 90 degrees) Kaycee mainly stayed inside. About July 13th we noticed that she was not really eating her dry food. She would still drink fine and eat what we would give her ( some hamburger, treats, and deli turkey)Again it was still in the 90s. We thought at that time that it was due to the heat. We kept her inside and watched her. She did vomit one time at night. On the night of July 17th I noticed that her ear was red. She did whimper 3 times like she was in pain, but that was the only time that she ever showed pain at all. She also seemed to be very unsure of her surroundings. She favored her right side (the side of her inflamed ear). She seemed to kind of stumble a bit. Early morning we rushed her to the vet. They told me that she had an ear infection and started ear ointment.

Pom Puppy House Training: Need Help
I own a 4 month old pomeranian and i am having trouble house training her. We have another Yorkie who is 10yrs, so when we first got her, we kept her in a playpen. We have always put down the puppy pads in her pen and she used them just fine. Now we are letting her out of the pen and its like she completely forgot how to use the pads! While in the pen, she would bark to let you know she had to poop, but she peed on the pads. Now while shes out in the house she pees and poops anywhere! But we keep her downstairs because it is tile and easier to clean than carpet. I am helpless i have no idea what to do! I tried putting her on a schedule but i ended up standing outside for 15 minutes waiting on her to do her business! Please help!

I have owned Pekingese for 34 years now, and have experienced a lot of ailments and illnesses during that time
I recently acquired a Peke puppy given up by his owners that has a severe 'coughing/snorting' issue. He is up to date on all his shots and tested negative for heartworm. In the past I have experienced this with my other Pekes, but only occasionally. This new puppy has been doing this quite often.
