PetsGEEKly: Motorola Scout 66 Wi-fi Pet Monitor E-mail

One of the biggest challenges we have in our pet-centric home is leaving it. We have three dogs who only get along part of the time and are incredibly dependent on both my husband and I. It’s a situation we created, so it’s a situation we need to resolve.

Thankfully, technology is catching up with our actual needs. We can now leave the house without worry because it’s like we’re still there in a lot of ways. Of course, cameras will never take the place of actually being there, but when it comes to alleviating stress, pet cams can help us cope with being away.

Taking a Look at the #NutriencePets Cat Food E-mail

When it comes to cat food, you have a lot of choices. The key is to find one that is nutritionally complete, manufactured with high quality ingredients, and most importantly - one that your cats like to eat.

We were asked to try out the new Nutrience brand of cat food. Nutrience is a Canadian company whose pet food is now available for purchase in USA through Amazon. They source all of their ingredients from the best Canadian and US growers. They have a "no bad anything" promise which is backed by the quality North American ingredients they use in their cat food. All of their food is made in small batches, which allows them to focus on quality and maintain their commitment to natural, wholesome nutrition for active cats.

We tried the Grain-Free Turkey, Chicken and Herring cat food. This food is a great everyday diet for all life stages, but we especially love it for our active cats. Nutrience focuses on quality ingredients such as free-run chicken, deboned herring and whole egg, which gives us an idea of why our cats enjoy it so much.

A great everyday diet created for all life stages, Nutrience Grain Free Turkey, Chicken & Herring formula also suits active or sensitive pets, providing:

Books: The Mountaintop School for Dogs and Other Second Chances E-mail

The Mountaintop School for Dogs and Other Second Chances
by Ellen Cooney
c.2012, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
304 pages

When 24-yr-old unemployed Evie sees a classified ad that reads, "Would you like to become a dog ____?", her answer is, "maybe". The missing word piques her interest and she ultimately decides that anything has to be better than what she is doing now - the endless therapy classes, and a general dis-ease with the world around her. She researches what type of dog ___ she could be and settles on "trainer," despite never having had a pet.

The Sanctuary is an old ski lodge turned dog rescue that sits atop a snowy mountain and is run by nuns.  When Evie arrives to begin her dog training classes, she isn’t prepared for what she finds. A large, stoic and very strict woman meets at the front desk. Her name is Mrs. Auberchon and just Evie’s presence seem to annoy the older woman.

And so begins Evie’s search for guidance in her new career as a  reluctant dog trainer for special needs canines.

Plants that Naturally Repel Fleas and Ticks E-mail

Mentha pulegium22There’s been a lot of research done on plants that naturally repel fleas and ticks. Garden plants can be a great way to keep flea and tick invasions to a minimum, but you have to be cautious that what you plant is not something that will cause harm to pets or wildlife.

Beware of common toxic plants

Many of the common herbs used to repel fleas are also toxic to pets, including the popular “Flea Bane” (Pennyroyal). Other plants that have been used successfully to repel fleas are citronella, geranium, Eucalyptus, fleawort, wormwood, tansy and Sweet Bay. However, all of them are toxic to animals and should be avoided in the yard and garden. The good news is that there are many other options available for natural flea and tick control that are also safe for pets should they get into it. Here they are, in no particular order.
