dog-sadThe Pet Product Guru would like to wish you are wonderful Passover and Easter Holiday! Remember not to let your dog or cat eat any chocolate. Chocolate is lethal to dogs and cats.  Chocolate contains a chemical called Theobromine which is toxic to dogs and cats. Chocolate should be kept away from dogs and cats at all times because they often like and make off with foods that are sweet. Even if you get them to a vet, pet medication may not be effective.

We would like to thank you for reading our posts. We have some great new ones on the way!

yourpetscount-petmedication1We are only as valuable as our health is good – a statement that’s true for both people and pets. And just like people, pets need certain medicines too to stay healthy. Heart worm pills and flee collars are just the beginning when it comes to keeping your pet safe form infection and disease. And to keep your pet out of the vet’s office, where the bills are usually high and the tails are tucked, you’ll have to make sure your loved one is receiving the proper care – and that means meds.

One of the oldest known tricks to get your animal to take their pet medication is to hide the pill in a glob of peanut butter. Your cat or dog is certain to lick every bit right up as they down what they believe to be a tasty treat. Or if you have the time and the proper tools – the back of a spoon works great – you can also crush the pill into a powder and mix it in with some yummy applesauce. Whichever method you choose, your pet will lead a happy and healthy life!
