Rejuvenate Your Pup

Friday, November 11, 2016

dogpeaceHere’s some info from a reader and her Border Terrier. Maybe she’s onto something!

For the past 10 years my border terrier, aptly named Terry, has been one of my best friends. When he was a puppy, nothing seemed to faze him. He could go for a 10 mile run or stay outside in the winter weather for hours and never miss a beat.

Now that he is getting on in years, Terry has lost much of his puppy-like exuberance. He rarely will go on jogs with me, and constantly shivers and shakes in the house. I recently picked him up a dog sweat shirt, and not only does Terry seem more comfortable, but it also gives him a younger, edgier appearance.

Remember, your pets count!

Calming Cat Anxiety

Thursday, November 10, 2016
posted by Jim Murphy

catanxiety-comI’m sure you’ve heard your cat hiss and have seen him puff up his tail. This means that he feels threatened. If you watch closely, when your cat gets startled, the pupils of his eyes will quickly become smaller. Your cat may show several different signs that he is frightened. He may also run, hide, growl and arch his back. To help reduce your cat’s anxiety, it is much better to slowly introduce anything that is new or different such as new cat toy, object, person and even another animal. Slowly, over time he will become used to the new addition to his environment. If your cat runs off and hides because he his frightened, don’t run after him and try to pull him out from under the sofa or bed. You’ll just make things worse. Be patient and let him come out when he is ready. One of my cats runs and hides when one of my friends comes over. My friend does not like cats and one time startled her. Since that time, she’s in her cozy little hiding place when my friend is over.

One important thing to remember with cats is that you should keep their routine as consistent as possible. This includes feeding, playing and cuddling.

When Training a Pup, Tone is Key

Tuesday, November 8, 2016
posted by Jim Murphy

cutestpupWhen you’re trying to teach your puppy a simple command or you’re correcting bad behavior, an appropriate tone of voice will convey the message most clearly. Remember that you’re dog is not human and he doesn’t understand English. Give commands in a clear, firm voice with a tone that says that “I am your leader.” Never let sharp, edgy or frustrated tones creep into your voice. That will only confuse your little pup. He’ll know that you’re displeased but he won’t know why. Whenever your puppy responds well or behaves nicely, praise him with warm, encouraging, upbeat tones. He’ll know that you’re happy and he’ll repeat the behavior. It may take awhile but your pup will learn if you stay calm and consistent. When he does behave well, don’t forget to reward him with a dog treat!

Remember, your pets count!

dogalumiumWell. it’s that time of year again. Thanksgiving and Christmas right around the corner and we need to keep our precious pets safe. We’ve talked about keeping bones away from your dog because these could splinter in your dogs intestines and cause major problems. There are other items to keep away from your dog. One is aluminum foil. We wrap leftover turkey and other foods in this product all the time but with all the excitement of the holidays, our pets can accidentally get a hold of aluminum foil and lick the grease or attempt to eat the contents. Aluminum foil can also cause major intestinal problems for your dog. Make sure that anything wrapped in aluminum foil is kept out of reach of your dog. Play it safe and enjoy your holiday!

Remember, your pets count!

EDGEWATER GOLD RADIO – 50’s through the 80’s plus great standards

REHOBOTH RADIO – Beachradio 5060 – 50’s and 60’s hits

Two Cats, Diarrhea , Which One?

Wednesday, November 2, 2016
posted by Jim Murphy

cats-litter-boxAs you know, I have two cats Molly and Millie. Molly my older cat has been diagnosed with chronic kidney disease. Molly always terrorizes Millie, who is 11 years old. About a day or two ago, I noticed that one of them has diarrhea, but which one? Molly does have kidney disease but is not exhibiting any abnormal symptoms. There is no vomiting and both cats seem to behaving and eating normally. Now, my problem is to determine which of them has the diarrhea. I suspect that it may be my younger cat Millie. If this continues for more than another day, I will have to take her to the vet to determine what’s causing her diarrhea. It’s very important  to make sure that your cat doesn’t get dehydrated if he/she has diarrhea. There are many things that can cause diarrhea in cats from stress to a bacteria or parasite infection so it’s important that you get it checked out if it doesn’t clear up within a day or two.
