Remember, Pets Can’t Dial 911

petvet3Our pets can’t tell us how they’re feeling.They’re not eating their dog food or cat food. We need to know when our pets are ill and not ignore important, sometimes life threatening symptoms. Here is a quick checklist. If your pet has any unexplained symptoms such as the ones listed below, get him to a vet or animal hospital immediately. It’s always better to be on the safe side and get things checked out fast. Many animal hospitals and clinics are open 24 hours. It’s a good idea to check which ones are open in your area so that you’re ready in case of an emergency.

Symptoms to look for:

Vomiting or Diarrhea
Urinating more frequently
Hair Loss or itchy skin
Stiffness, lameness or difficulty with rising
Coughing
Lack of Appetite or Decreased Activity
If you notice any of these symptoms, get your pet in for a check up. Many times pet medication will take care of the problem, however any of these symptoms could be a more serious condition.

Does a Cat’s Scent Really Keep Mice Away

catmouseWe know that every time you buy that little mouse cat toy, your cat will chase it like it’s the real thing. Do cats prefer mice as a meal in place of their cat food? The answer is “no but” It’s my experience that a cat’s scent will keep mice away. I once lived in a condo in Hoboken, NJ. Every unit on our floor had a problem with mice except ours. The reason I believe this is that we had a cat . I also had a mobile home in recreational camping area in Delaware. Most of the other RV’s or mobiles had problems with mice. Ours never did. I attribute it to the fact that we always brought our two cats down and their scent kept the mice out. Mice will always find a way to get into your home. If there is a place where they cannot detect the scent of your cat, you still may have a problem. My experience is that a cat’s scent will definitely be a deterrent for mice. So if you live in a wooded area or in an apartment in an urban area, it may be a great time to adopt a cat to keep those mice away. Even though the cat bed, litter box and cat food will cost you a bit, it’s still worth it.
