Ready for some new technology to fight the war on fleas and ticks? We've got a few things for you.
There are lots of products on the market that help fight fleas and ticks naturally, but sometimes you need a little more. This is where ultrasonic tick and flea protection comes into play.
The concept is pretty simple: Insects detect sound by special hairs (known as sensilla) which are located on the insects antennae (in the case of mosquitoes), genitalia (in the case of cockroaches), or tympanal organs (in the case of butterflies). The theory is that they don't like the sound of pulses and will run away to another unlikely victim.Read More
Water is the one thing that no living being can do without. It’s especially important to our pets. Not drinking enough water can result in lots of health problems for our dogs and cats.
This is why we’re helping PetSafe® celebrate National Pet Hydration Month this July. They not only understand the importance of water, they help make it safe for our pets. As you know if you read PetsWeekly, Drinkwells is our preferred way to make desert water a little more appealing to our pets. Since we’ve used pet fountains in our home, we have virtually eliminated urinary stones and crystals in our cats, and UTIs in our dogs.
“Our pets need one ounce of water per pound of bodyweight each day,” said Willie Wallace, CEO of Radio Systems Corporation, makers of the PetSafe brand. “Proper hydration plays a big role in a pet’s health, and can save pet parents a trip to their vet’s office.”Read More
June 28 is National Insurance Awareness Day. This year, let’s focus the conversation on our pets.
Insurance is a hot topic for everyone these days. Not only do we have to make tough choices for ourselves and our human family, we now have to seriously consider options for out pets medical care. As science and technology improve, so does the care of pets, but these advances are not inexpensive.
It really shouldn’t be that tough of a question. We insure our homes, our vehicles, our jewelry and even our art. Why wouldn’t we insure our pets to make certain they receive the best care possible? Yet, fewer than 1% of our pets are protected by insurance.
We know how important it is to make this decision count. That’s why we worked with Pets Best to come up with a list of the top 10 questions you should ask prior to purchasing pet insurance.Read More
There’s a new option for keeping dogs calm during times of stress (particularly when there's a thunderstorm or fireworks, or when your pets experience separation anxiety). Since it's very new and quite effective, I wanted to let you know about it right away so you can get it ordered before the 4th of July.
Calmz is an anxiety relief system that is developed by vets for pets. It’s non-invasive, drug-free and effective; so I’m quite excited to be among the first to introduce it. This unique system uses sound, touch, and vibration to help calm pets.
Here are the details:Read More
Just when you think the fate of an abandoned animal can't possibly get any worse. ABC News recently reported that many of these dogs and cats are sold to terminal surgery laboratories where they are used for testing and surgery training, and then euthanized.
Now, I have to say, we have our doubts about this practice and that story's accuracy. The veterinary schools we know and work with abandoned that practice many, many years ago and only perform surgeries on shelter animals who require surgery. Even then, then they do their best to find homes for the animals through legitimate rescuers.
On the other paw, many laboratories do purchase animals from "B dealers" (aka puppy mills, horses from slaughterhouses and others who just breed to sell to laboratories).
Regardless, SynDaver Labs, a Florida-based company, is planning to change any need for anyone to ever have to purchase a live dog for experimentation or training DVMs by replacing them with lifelike and very realistic synthetic dog that mimics nearly every part of a live animal.Read More
