Your Pets Immune System

Saturday, December 15, 2012
posted by Jim Murphy

Your pets immune system is on guard 24/7 to ward off viruses, bacteria and other foreign invaders that can make him sick.  If any of these disease causing agents penetrate it’s outer line of defense, a cellular  fighting force is deployed to destroy them.  Your pets need a strong immune response to survive. What they eat plays an important role in maintaining a healthy immune system. that’s why your pets diets needs to be balanced in terms of major nutrients such as proteins and fats as well as key vitamins and minerals such as zinc, celenium and vitamin E. Too much of one element can be just as detrimental to the immune system as too little.  Ask your veterinarian for a recommendation and make sure you read the labels of pet food.

Remember, your pets count!

A Barbaric World

I usually write about the care of dogs and cats but tonight, I can’t find words to describe how I feel about the horrific events that took place in Newtown Connecticut. Twenty six innocent lives lost, twenty of them innocent children just starting out in life. What is happening in this country?  This horrible act is being committed time and time again. The truth is that there are no gun control laws in the country. How could a 20 year old demented kid get a hold of not one but two automatic weapons? There is no choice, guns must be illegal in this country. That’s it.  Guns only mame and kill innocent animals and people. The bottom line is that it must be illegal to own a gun in the country.  Anyone caught owning one should be thrown in jail. Anyone caught selling a gun should be prosecuted. It sounds harsh but we’re at this point now. We are no longer safe anywhere!  It seems that more and more young people are severely disturbed which also says a lot about mental health care in this country.

I pray for the families of the victims, I can’t imagine what it would be like to send your child off to school and have them never return.

A few days ago hunters in New Jersey killed 285 bears for no reason! They were actually proud of the amount that they killed. This disgusts me.

Our pets have a calming affect on us. I’m glad that I have my two cats with me tonight, this situation has really stressed me out and their unconditional love is comforting.
