Doggie Health Tips and a Pillow ;-)

A healthy dog is a happy dog. Most dog health tips will make owning your dog much easier as the dog will have less problems. It is important to be careful when purchasing products to help keep your dog healthy as you need to distinguish quality products from unsatisfactory items. A few basic precautions will ensure that your dog lives a long and healthy life.
How much to bath your dog will depend on the breed and where the dog sleeps. Dogs that sleep on the bed are typically bathed more often as are dogs that live indoors. Dogs that live outdoors will be bathed less often. Normally, a dog has a bath when the coat is dirty. Do not use human shampoo to wash your dog. Pet shampoo is made specifically for dogs because a dog's skin is much more delicate than humans. If you bath your dog frequently, then vegetable oil supplements or Linatone can help keep the coat and skin healthy.
Dogs have allergies just like humans. Signs of allergies for dogs include biting, face rubbing, face scratching and skin chewing. The areas that are affected by allergies include the base of the tail, ears, mouth and eyes. Most dog allergies are inherited from the parent. As with humans, the best way to prevent allergies is to avoid the allergen. Make sure to keep good records on your dog's behavior because diagnosing allergies is tricky. If the dog has severe allergies, then treatment consists of allergy shots. Talk to the veterinarian about the best allergy treatment for your dog.
There are several types of nontoxic flea repellents that will prevent flea infestations. Citrus is a powerful flea repellent. Let a cut lemon sit in boiling water. The water repels fleas when sprayed on the dog. Combinations of aromatherapy oil will also repel fleas. Cedarwod oil and lavender oil will repel fleas when a drop or two is spread over your dogs skin twice a week. Bathing is needed for a dog that already has a flea infestation. Rinse the dog with a solution of fresh rosemary steeped in boiling water. Pour it over the dog and allow her to dry.
There are many problems that can affect your dogs ears. A healthy dog ear will not have any odor and will be pink-gray in color. Ear infections are common and can be hard to treat. Your vet will know exactly what to do. The minute you notice something wrong with your dog's ears, visit your vet. To prevent infection, clean the ears with hydrogen peroxide. Dip a cotton ball in the hydrogen peroxide, then wipe out the ears. Clean the ear carefully and dry the ears completely after cleaning.
Every dog needs to be groomed. Start grooming as a puppy and make it fun. Your dog will enjoy being groomed and will not run away. When the dog associates grooming as fun, this makes grooming quick and easy. A soft brush is best for grooming and brush hair in the direction that it grows.
A dog should always have access to drinking water and the water dish needs to be refilled everyday. When it is cold outside, check that the water has not frozen. If necessary, a heated dog dish can prevent frozen water in the winter. In the summer, if the water is too warm, your dog can get sick. Try to position water bowls in the shade to keep it cool all day long.
Visit the Vet
Going to the vet and waiting to uncover the problem yourself could be life or death for the dog. The sooner the diagnosis is given, the less expensive and more effective the treatment might be. Maintain a good relationship with your vet and call if you notice something not quite right with your dog. It is much better to be safe than sorryRead more: Free Dog Health Tips

I also wanted to share my latest pet pillow. It's available for sale at my pet boutique called Whiskers and Tails Cottage.

Happy Halloween!


I thought I would share some Halloween Pet Dangers Tips.

Most of us want to involve our pets in all of the action and excitement of our lives; but it’s not always so great for our pets. Consider Halloween. Consider it from a pet’s perspective, to be specific: the doorbell ringing repeatedly; a parade of yelling sugar-fueled “creatures” behind the door; toxic chocolate to find; decorations to get tangled up in; and how about the dreaded pet costume? (OK, I understand that not all pets are shamed by costumes, but I just keep thinking of my daughters’ dog Winky and his look of abject misery when the doggie witch costume comes out of the closet.)
It’s important to keep your pets safe this Halloween by thinking around the holiday excitement, and being aware of the little catastrophes lurking in the night. Here’s a round-up of tips from animal protection groups compiled by
Don’t give Halloween candy to dogs and cats. Candy can be harmful to pets and chocolate is toxic to dogs, cats, and ferrets. Candies that have the artificial sweetener xylitol can also be poisonous to dogs–even small amounts can cause a sudden drop in blood sugar and lead to depression, lack of coordination and seizures. Symptoms of chocolate ingestion can include vomiting, diarrhea, hyperactivity, and increased thirst, urination and heart rate, and even seizures. See 10 Foods Poisonous to Pets for more information.
Avoid putting costumes on pets. Many dogs and cats don’t like costumes, and some can confine or restrict their movements. If you do dress up your pet, make sure the costume doesn’t impair their movement, hearing, sight or ability to breathe or bark. Also check the costume for any choking hazards. A safer alternative is a simple Halloween bandanna. Read more:

Keep pets inside and away from the front door and trick-or-treaters. “Halloween brings a flurry of activity with visitors constantly arriving at the door, and pets may escape the safety of their home, said Gail Buchwald, senior vice president of the ASPCA Pet Adoption Center in Manhattan. “Be sure that your pet has identification tags should he or she accidentally get loose.” And remember cats–especially black ones–often fall victim to pranksters.
Keep candy wrappers away from pets. Cats love to play with candy wrappers, animal experts say–and many cats love to eat strange things. But if cats ingest aluminum foil or cellophane it can cause intestinal blockage and induce vomiting.
Keep Halloween decorations away from pets. Dogs and cats can easily knock over a jack-o’-lanterns and start a fire. And curious kittens are particularly at risk of getting burned by candle flames. Keep dangling decorations in high places to avoid choking hazards. Wires and cords from holiday decorations also pose a danger to pets. If chewed, a wire can damage your pet’s mouth from shards of glass or plastic or give them a potentially lethal electrical shock.
Use fake cobwebs sparingly on trees and bushes. They can pose a risk to pets and small birds can easily become entangled in the webbing. Read more:

Great Cat Facts~

Happy Friday Everyone!

I came across these cool cat facts online and just had to share them with all you cat lovers. Enjoy! I will be posting Doggie facts too.


1. Ambidexer-Cat?
You probably never thought about a cat as being either left- or right-pawed, but over 40 percent are either lefties or righties. That means there’s quite a few out there who are ambidextrous. Luckily for them, they can probably operate the can opener with both paws. :-)

2. Warm or Cold? Food that is. Cats don’t like their food too hot or too cold. They like it just right. And for them, just right is room temperature, just like their prey would be in the wild. Cats are indeed the Goldilocks of the animal world.

3. In Living Color Cats see in color, so your new paisley frock in orange, purple, and yellow won’t be lost on them. They also have fantastic night vision, and only need one-sixth of the light humans require to see. So don’t go getting your cat night-vision goggles.

4. What’s in a Name?A group of kittens is called a “kindle” (yes, just like that fancy new electronic book device available now), while a group of adult cats is called a “clowder.

5. Meow?We all know the meow sound, whether it’s questioning, scared, happy, or imperiously demanding dinner. Curiously, cats only meow at people, not at other cats.

6. Four-Legged Mood Rings Cats are highly intuitive creatures, and they are more than able to pick up your mood, especially from your tone of voice. They know when you’re yelling at them (though they often don’t seem to care). If you need your cat to calm down, try speaking to her in a soothing, loving voice. You’ll be amazed.

7. Lofty Beginnings Ever wonder who invented the cat door? It was Sir Isaac Newton. Perhaps he was vexed by his cat wanting in and out all the time and disturbing his work, so he did something about it–much to the relief of cat lovers everywhere.

8. It’s All in the Fall Cats really do land on their feet. In fact, they all fall in the same way. First they rotate their head, then twist their spine around, followed by a rear leg alignment and finally they relax into it and arch the back, thus lessening impact. But please, don’t experiment with this at home. Take our word for it.

9. Baby Machines Unless you want a “clowder” of cats cluttering your home, spay, and neuter your furry feline. Just one pair of cats and their kittens can produce 420,000 (!) offspring in a mere seven years.

10. Individuality Like human fingerprints, cats have their own built-in unique tag of telling them apart–their nose! The nose pads of cats are all uniquely ridged, meaning no two are the same. Read more:

This Is Charley

You just have to see this awesome video of Charley. What a sweet kitty. He has cerebellar hypoplasia. I have never heard of this ,but it's so good to know. Someone out there might have a kitty that has the same symptons and not know it. So this is a great way to educate our dear cat lovers.

Have a purr-fect day!

24 Common Plants Poisonous to Pets~

I came across this good article and thought I would share it with all you pet lovers.
Pet owners know that dogs and cats often have a penchant for eating strange things. Cats often gravitate toward plastic or wool, and many a dog will chew on whatever it can get its chops around. And then there are plants. Whether garden plants, houseplants, plants in the wild, or flowers from the florist–plants can provide a tasty and tempting diversion for animals, one that can be at odds with your pet’s health.
In order to prevent poisoning by cut flowers or house plants, avoid placing toxic ones in your home where pets may be able to access them. Or better yet, avoid buying flowers and plants that are known to be toxic. Outside is trickier, especially if your dog or cat has a wide range to roam.
For dogs, the animal science department at Cornell University suggests adding bran flakes to his food or switching her diet to one higher in vegetable fibers to deter cravings for vegetation. The only other thing to do is to watch your dog’s behavior when walking outside, and try to prevent them from munching on vegetation unless you know it is harmless. When you see symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, difficult breathing, abnormal urine, salivation, weakness, and any other abnormal condition, take your pet to the veterinarian because he may be poisoned.Read more:
Hope this was helpful and have a great day!

Caboodle Ranch-It's Heaven for Kitties~

This is an amazing man. Talk about loving God's creatures.

His name is Craig Grant bought a tree farm far away from
the city and turned it into a sanctuary for all the
cats he has rescued. He lives there with the cats
and provides lots of love, care and companionship.
It hard to imagine that once he was not a cat
lover and did not want cats until he met his
son¹s cat Pepper.

He also got to experience
what it is like raising a litter of kittens. Over
that time I learned
that every cat had its own unique personality
and it wasn¹t long before the kittens were
swinging from my curtains. I didn't care.
Something had changed, I didn¹t want to give them up.
The condo life was not easy for the kitties, so Craig
found a tree farm and settled down there for
his fur babies. Over the next several months,
he rescued more and more homeless and
abandoned cats. The number of new residents
kept going up, so Craig expanded the sanctuary
to make more room for the animals.

The farm was named Caboodle Ranch and is now a permanent home for all the homeless, rescued
cats. Each of them has a sad story of their past,
but now they are living in heaven. Cats should be
able to roam free, and at Caboodle Ranch, that's
what they do. Craig has built many beautiful cat
houses and decorated the place with vibrant colors
and tons of liveliness.
All the cats are spayed and
neutered. Don't forget to visit Caboodle Ranch
(non profit rescue center) at their website and
check them out on Facebook.

Prayer Request for Charlie

Hello Pet Friends,

My friend Emma has a sweet dog named Charlie.
He recently had a treatment done.
I would like to ask for you all to please say a prayer for him.
I told Emma that I would post it on my blog.
She is very grateful. :-)

Here is the e-mail from Emma about his treatment (below)

Hi Janet,

He had his first treatment today..He did well and he is home. He is on a pain pill for where the shot was given and will get a lazer treatment tomorrow to help with the swollen and pain. He has some loose stool but they said that is normal.. He is eating and I saved him some roast chicken..he was happy about that..he's sleeping and resting. They said at the vets he watched everything..he's noisey like his human mom's!!! He has some more treatment to go...

Charlie had the lazer treatment today to help with the pain and swollen. He let them touch the area and you would never know he was in pain my sweet boy. He has alot ahead of him. He got so sick in the car on the way home from the vet. We felt so bad for him. He is fine now and I am making him turkey rice soup to settle his belly down.
Thanks for the prayers.
Hugs Emma

Thanks so much to all of you. xo

p.s. If you have ever need a prayer request for your pet please let me know and I will post it on my blog. Send all prayer requests to

Piggy and Hollingsworth

Here is a wonderful true
story that I came across
and just
had to share.

Funny how a serious and suddenly unexpected accident can alter someone's
life forever, isn't it?A hit-and-run driver changed a dog named Piggy's life. Once a rambunctious pup, Piggy is now wheelchair-dependent. But that hasn't stopped her
from loving life and teaching others how to cope with life's struggles.
When April Hollingsworth went to South Salt Lake shelter searching for her AWOL cat, the
last thing she expected to take home was a Pit Bull/Boxer mix. But the 10-month-old female pup charmed her way into Hollingsworth's heart by looking directly into her face -- and
simply smiling.Full of mischief, the dog earned the name Piggy, and was a constant
companion for Hollingsworth. Being an attorney, Hollingsworth logs long hours and
Piggy helped her to maintain a sense of balance.Then Piggy and Hollingsworth's lives
changed drastically.Almost four years ago, Piggy sustained serious injuries when she
was struck by a hit-and-run driver. Paralysis was immediately evident when Hollingsworth picked Piggy up after the accident. But not willing to give up, Hollingsworth pursued every avenue of treatment for her beloved dog.The end result: a wheelchair that allows Piggy to
walk on her own. One Sunday morning while walking Piggy in her wheeled cart, the two met Scott Williams coming out of a church near their home.Williams formed an immediate bond with Piggy. Having lost part of his feet from a rock climbing accident, Williams, too, lives life from
a wheelchair. "I'd never seen a dog with wheels for back legs," said Williams in an NPR Story Corp broadcast. "And her licking my face ... and she was happy!" Williams went on to explain, "Most people I meet in wheelchairs aren't happy very often." It was then that Hollingsworth realized Piggy had the power to make a difference for others. The extraordinary relationship forged between Williams and Piggy spurred Hollingsworth to get Piggy certified as a therapy dog with Intermountain Therapy Animals. Piggy now visits Shriners Hospital for Children in Salt Lake City every other week, and the effect she has on the children is mesmerizing. Piggy is beyond gentle with the patients, but most importantly, she is a role model for the kids going through a frightening illness or injury. Piggy's attitude to just keep trying and be happy doing it is infectious!

By Megan Drake

Good girl, Piggy!

Goes to show you how much we need to appreciate the things we have. :-)
Hope you enjoyed this article. Have a great Saturday!

Cece Update and 5 Summer Pet Health Tips

Happy Friday Everyone!

Denise would like to thank you very ,very much for your prayers for Cece. I am happy to report that she is doing great. She has been playing happily. So this is a wonderful sign. Prayers do move mountains! xo
p.s. If you would like to visit her blog here is the link:

And I would also like to share a good article I found online on Summer Pet Health Tips by Brian Carlsen.

Here it is...Enjoy!
5 Tips For Summer Pet Health --
Never Leave Your Pet In The Car Alone - During warm summer months the inside of your car can reach up to 120 degrees in just a matter of minutes, even parked in the shade. Pets left in the hot car, even briefly, can suffer from heat exhaustion, heat stroke, brain damage, and even death. Watch Out For Poisonous Fertilizers - Lawn fertilizers and several products used to flourish grass and flower gardens contain toxic elements harmful, and in some cases fatal, to pets. Lawn fertilizer, insecticides and plant foods can cause diarrhea and vomiting in pets if poisonous.

Look for organic, natural or pet-friendly fertilizers to green your grass this summer. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate! - Pets can get dehydrated quickly, so make sure a supply of clean, fresh water is always available during summer months. When it's hot outside, make sure your pet has access to a shady spot and be sure not to over-exercise. During extreme temperatures, keep your pets indoors to avoid heat exhaustion or dehydration. Warning signs of overheating and dehydration include excessive panting, glazed eyes and refusing to move.
SPF For Pets - Pets, especially those with white hair, haircuts or extremely short hair, are prone to sunburns and skin cancer as a result of sun overexposure. Pets can have sunblock applied to sun-sensitive areas such as tips of ears, nose the belly and groin areas that typically have sparse hair coverage and thinner skin. Consult your veterinarian before applying sunblock to your pet to find the best type of sunscreen or sun protection product.Get a Pre-Summer Health Screening - A check-up visit with the veterinarian is a good way to begin a healthy and safe summer. Ensure your pet is up to date on all vaccinations and goes into the summer months with a clean bill of health.
This is also a good time to ask your vet about heartworm medication and begin or continue your preventative medication routine; the deadly heartworm disease is transmitted through mosquitoes and effects both dogs and cats.

A Catio You Say?

What do you do when you live in a big city but want to give your kitty some outdoor time? Create a catio, of course!

What’s a catio, you ask? The New York Times had a great article on the phenomenon, which involves screening-in an outdoor area so that cats can enjoy some fresh air.
Many of the featured cat owners came up with their own creative methods for creating these outdoor spaces on porches and patios. And, there are several companies (and even a catio blog!) that specialize in outdoor pet enclosures, which range from do-it-yourself kits to elaborate, maze-like structures. Catios aren’t just limited to city folk, either. People with backyards have unlimited options for outdoor kitty playgrounds.

Many of us know all too well that cats can get stir crazy when they don’t get to go outside. So a catio concept sounds ideal. I think we would be a bit nervous having a kitty out on a high balcony, but some of the closer-to-the-ground options seem fun.
Hope this information is of some help.
