Check The Labels of Dog Food

Monday, October 3, 2016
posted by Jim Murphy

dogchartWhen purchasing dog food, always check the bag. If it’s labeled “complete and balanced,” it meets the standards of the American Feed Control officials, or AFCO. These dog foods either have an adequate nutrient profile based on laboratory testing or they passed a half year feeding trial. AFCO members includes both government agency and pet food company employees. Dog foods that don’t meet AFCO standards could still be legally sold. They can’t display terms like “complete” or “balanced.” Most veterinarians recommend AFCO approved premium brands. Feeding your dog a high quality diet is one of the most important decisions you can make for his well being.

Eliminating Cat Dander

cat-danderIt’s usually cat dander that causes our cat allergies. There are ways to reduce the dander and provide some relief of allergy sufferers.

1. Try not to have your cat sleep in the bed with you. I let mine, but sometimes pay for it in the morning.

2. Wash all bedding with hot water and vacuum out their cat beds at least twice each month.

3. Use HEPA air filters in the rooms where your cats are.

4. Vacuum at two to three times per week using a HEPA filter.

5. Wash your hands immediately after petting your cat and do not rub your eyes. I get itchy eyes for hours, sometimes days if I don’t wash my hands.

6. Confine your cat to an area of the house. Keeping litter boxes, cat toys and cats bedding in one separate area can reduce the amount of dander in the rest of the house.

7. Use pet wipes on your cat regularly to moisten the skin and contain the dander so it doesn’t fly all around the room.

8. Clean the cat bed regularly. Use a vacuum and if you can, it may be a good idea to wash it occasionally.

9. DO NOT GET RID OF YOUR CAT! Prevention can really help the problem.
