DOGCRATSSchool is ending and summer is here.Many of you will take to the roads with your pets. If you are new to this, there are certain things that you should know about traveling with your dogs in their dog carriers or dog crates. Pet crates used for travel will be much different then those that you keep in one place in your home. They need to be lightweight with a handle if possible. It’s best to buy a crate that can be folded down for easy storage. Crates for pet travel are often better than a pet carrier. They are usually more roomy giving your pet more space to move around. Another benefit for your dog is that they will be able to see more on the trip. Whatever type of crate that you decide to use, your pet will not only be nervous because of the trip but also will be irritated because of being cooped up so long. Allowing your pets out for short periods during the trip is an excellent way to keep them happy. It also helps with the barking which can be irritating to other travelers. Have a wonderful summer and be safe on your trip with your pet!

A Cat’s Sensitive Digestive System

Friday, June 10, 2016
posted by Jim Murphy

CAT EATINGAny quick changes to a cats diet can affect their digestive system. I feed my younger cat Millie, a mixture of two kinds of dry food. Keep in mind that unlike Molly, Mille is a very fussy eater and won’t usually eat wet cat food. Millie loves Fancy Feast dry cat food. (Not the best choice but that’s what she likes) . I ran out of Fancy Feast about three days ago and figured that the other brand (Purina) dry cat food would hold her over until I could get to the store to get her Fancy Feast. I did not realize that Millie was not eating her dry food at all during this time. I suspect that she ate Molly’s wet food when she got hungry.

Yesterday, she began meowing more than usual in the morning. I realized that she was hungry but I noticed that she had diarrhea. This was going on for a good part of the day. She was not vomiting and didn’t seem sick but she seemed uncomfortable. I quickly went to the store and bought her Fancy Feast cat food. I checked with my vet and she believes that her digestive system reacted to the wet food because she was not used to it.

So far today, she seems ok but I am watching her closely. Never change your cat’s diet suddenly. Gradually add the new food and mix it with her regular food. Give her digestive system a chance to get used to the new cat food.
