Diet Can Cure Cat Food Urinary Problems Symptoms

If your cat is having a difficult time with urinary problems it could possibly be the cat food. Cat food urinary problems symptoms can be a result of over processed cat food which does not contain the best nutrients for the immune system to protect itself and will not create a balanced environment in the urinary tract system. If your cat is on a dry only free fed diet there will not be enough moisture for his urinary tract to flush out any bacteria when urinating and maintaining a healthy pH level.

What ever your cat eats determines his health, just like us humans. If we eat junk our health is undermined and the same with our pets. Cats need a high quality protein as the base for their diet or the poor quality cat food urinary problems symptoms will appear. There are some prepared raw meat diets you can buy in the pet food stores, but it is cheaper and not very time consuming as you may think to make your own.

Try boiling some beef, chicken or turkey; add some cut carrots or a can of mixed vegetables. You can even cook it in a slow cooker all day. It will literally fall off the bones so very little cutting is required. Serve with the broth to introduce more liquids in your cat's diet. You can divide and freeze in individual containers to last a month. Or, you can purchase ground chicken or hamburger and cook with a little water, cool and add canned cut mixed vegetables (amount depends on how much meat) but generally 1/4 of the total would be veggies. Divide and freeze or refrigerate in sealed containers for no more than three days.

Cooking your own food is a very healthy alternative to processed cat food. If you simply do not have the time, buy a high quality cat food available at pet stores. These usually cost a little more, but in the long run you won't be paying for vet bills! Also cats love fresh water. My cats love those fountains that recirculate and filter the water. And don't ask me why, but I know several people that tell me their cat loves to have a glass topped off with water on the counter (if you allow your cats on the counter). Hey, whatever encourages more water consumption!

In addition to food and water add a homeopathic remedy for cat food urinary problems symptoms specifically designed for the bladder that will help your cat fight off any infections, stimulate immunity and re-establish bladder health. Make sure that the remedy contains herbs that maintain normal pH levels in the urinary tract such as uva ursi and berberis vulgaris which restores the health of the bladder and urinary tract. Cantharis is another superior ingredient which will sustain a healthy flow of urine.

Summer Pet Care Tips

Summer is the time for fun, outdoor activities, swimming, picnics and vacations. And, understandably, people love to share many of their summer activities with their animal companions. Unfortunately, every summer many beloved pets die unnecessarily during extremely hot weather.

HEAT exhaustion is one of the most common ailments of pets during the summer months, so pet owners should be cautious. If it's an exceptionally hot day, keep your dog or cat in the house with you and a fan and/or air conditioning. If it's too hot outside for you, it's too hot outside for your pet. Signs of heatstroke may include: hot skin, rapid panting, twitching muscles, salivation, a dazed expression. Wrap your pet in a towel with cool, not COLD water. Cool him down by giving him ice cubes to lick (as cold water will upset his stomach worse and hasten dehydration). Let him lie in front of a fan. To prevent heat exhaustion, make sure your outside pets have access to shade, fresh water and that you monitor them at least several times a day to make sure they're all right.!

NEVER leave your pet in a parked car - not even if you crack the windows or park in the shade. The temperature in the car can increase rapidly and cause heat exhaustion, heat stroke or even death. On an 85 degree day, the temperature inside your car, even with the windows open a bit, will climb to 102 degrees in 10 minutes. After 30 minutes, it will go up to 120 degrees or even higher!

GIVE your animal companion plenty of cool, clean water at all times. Dogs can only sweat through the pads of their feet and by panting. Evaporation from the wet surfaces of their mouth and nose helps lower their body temperature.

DO not leave your pet shut in an empty house or tied outside while you're on vacation.

NEVER force your dog to run in hot, humid weather. Watch for hot pavement. Sensitive paws burn easily. After a walk or run, check your dog's paws to make sure they are okay.

KEEP vaccinations up-to-date. This is a time when most pets come into contact with other animals at parks, beaches, lakes and campgrounds.

DON'T let your pets roam the streets. Veterinarians see numerous fight injuries and bite wounds in the summer as well as animals hit or run over by cars.

USE Heartworm preventative as mosquitoes which increase dramatically in the summer, carry Heartworm - one of the most deadly ailments household pets suffer. Mosquitoes carry a parasite that causes pulmonary vascular disease that can lead to heart failure. Preventative medication is the best way to avoid this deadly disease.

WASPS, bees and hornets are also a problem during the summer. Although there is no real way for your pets to avoid being stung, they can be treated with antihistamines to reduce the swelling that follows an attack If swelling doesn't subside, see your vet!

WATCH the exercise and diet of your pets. Overeating can result in overheating. Eating less is healthier for them. Do not encourage exercise during the hottest part of the day. Early mornings and evenings are the best times for exercising.

FLEAS, ticks and other parasites may infest your pet. There are many good products available to keep fleas and ticks off your pet. Check with your vet!

WHEN planning a vacation, don't forget your animal companions. Plan for them too. If you are planning on taking them with you, make certain that they will travel comfortably (with plenty of potty and exercise stops) and that they are welcome guests at hotels, homes of friends, etc, and your destination. If you are leaving them behind, make certain you have a well-credentialed pet-sitter or boarding facility. Referrals from trusted veterinarians and animal-loving friends are always helpful. Check them out well in advance of your proposed trip and make reservations, leaving them with a list of medications and instructions as to feeding, exercise, etc. Leave the name of your vet along with friends and neighbors who know your pet. Leave your whereabouts and how to reach you.

ON holidays such as the 4th of July when your pet is exposed to loud noises such as fireworks, make sure he has a safe, quiet place/sanctuary inside your home, that he is in a room from which he cannot escape or run away and that you have either the television or radio on for him to distract or deflect the scary outside sounds. Keep your pet away from crowds of people and loud noises. This will keep him calm and safe!

BY following these tips, there is a high probability that you and your animal companions will enjoy a safe, healthy and happy summer!

Great Dog Breeds For Urbanites

The Chihuahua

This spunky little dog is a firecracker in a tiny package. The Chihuahua is a breed of Mexican descent whose tiny stature (around 3-10 pounds usually) makes it a great dog for small spaces. The Chihuahua does like to play though, and has a lot of energy. Fortunately though, it is so small that a good walk around the block and some fetch will suffice. The Chihuahua is very loyal and usually devotes itself entirely to one person.

Boston Terrier

The Boston Terrier is a smart little dog who likes to play fetch and cuddle equally. They are best kept indoors because they get cold and overheat easily, which makes them an ideal apartment dog. Boston Terriers also get along well with older children, and make great play companions.

The Pug

If you are looking for a funny fellow to join your life, try a pug. These dogs, with their scrunched up faces, love to please whether it be playing a game of fetch or watching TV with you. Pugs are a bit bigger than the previous two breeds (14 to 18 pounds) but this makes them better dogs for families with young children. Pugs do best indoors because they get overheated easily.

The Japanese Chin

The Japanese Chin is an excellent dog for those who love a constant companion. The Chin is devoted to his family and gets along well with others pets. He only needs a moderate amount of exercise, and does best indoors, making him the perfect apartment dog. Chins live to please and are fairly easy to train, though it is important they are properly socialized as puppies in order to make them sociable around strangers.

Of course, everyone has a breed preference, but these dogs are very well suited to living in a city. It's important to find a dog that will be happy to live in a smaller environment and get less exercise, because an unhappy dog can be a destructive dog. Good luck finding the urban pooch of your dreams!

Dalmatian Molly in the Tropical Aquarium

Each Dalmatian Molly pattern is unique, some having more black spots than others and some being much more white. Their bodies are chunky with rounded fins, except for the male's anal fin, which is pointed. They can grow up to 4-inches in length.

Although Dalmatian Mollies have peaceful temperaments, they do get a bit nippy. Provide them with plenty of sturdy plant life for nibbling to keep the nipping of other fish at bay. Plant life is optimal too because of their need to eat plenty of algae.

Angel Fish, Guppies and Platys are well suited mates for the Mollies. Also consider housing them with other Molly breeds. There are many types to choose from and they will cross-breed. It's kind of a fun surprise, the different combinations of fry that result.

Dalmatian Mollies do enjoy chasing other species around, but they generally cause no harm.

It is important for the health of the Mollies to have aquarium salts added to the water. For every two gallons of water add one teaspoon of salt. Take into consideration before adding other species to the tank that they can tolerate salt water. The water temperature should be between 68-82 degrees Fahrenheit. Dalmation Mollies need plenty of swim area, so 1-inch of fish per 1-gallon of water is best.

For optimum health give your Dalmatian Mollies not only algae-based flake food, but small amounts of greens. Lettuce and cooked peas are good choices. They also enjoy occasional snacks of freeze-dried bloodworms or tubifex.

Chances are good that when you bring home your female Molly, she will already be pregnant, as she is able to hold sperm for up to six months. The gestation period is anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks. Being a livebearer, she will give birth to more than 20 little free swimmers at one time. Some people place their pregnant Mollies in a breeding net before birthing. This is a bad idea because she will likely become stressed.

For the fry, have ready aforehand a 9 or 10 gallon tank. After the mother gives birth, remove the fry with a turkey baster and put them into their own tank. Of course you can't be watching the aquarium 24 hours a day, so have plenty of floating plant life for them to hide in until you are able to get them to safety. You will also need to have your filter covered with netting before they are born, as it is likely many of the fry will get sucked into it. If you choose not to have a separate tank for the fry, than be sure you add extra floating plant life for hiding.

The fry can eat crushed flake food and baby brine shrimp.

The Dalmatian Molly grows to adult size in about 3 months. Well before that, they may join the other fish in the community tank. You'll be able to judge when they are big enough to not be eaten by the bigger fish.

The average life span of the Dalmatian Molly is 2 years.

You're going to enjoy watching these black and white beauties race back and forth, stopping for a nibble here and there.

Create a Backyard Habitat for Wild Birds with a Bird Feeder

With a little imagination and very little effort, you can transform your backyard into a natural habitat for birds. Whether you're an avid birdwatcher, or simply want to invite nature a little closer to your home, birdfeeders put down the welcome mat for our avian friends. According to the Audubon Society (www.audubon.org), a bird feeder comes in one of four basic designs. Ground feeders are flat and open, have a screened bottom, and rest off the ground and should be situated ten feet from nearby trees or bushes so that birds can fly away from any predators. Ground feeders can be made squirrel proof by utilizing wire mesh over the bird feeder. Tube birdfeeders are cylindrical in shape and typically have openings that allow birds to access the seeds. They should be hung off the ground and, for maximum enjoyment, near a window so that family members can witness the wild birds that come to visit. Suet and hopper bird feeders are typically shaped like houses. A suet bird feeder, made for wild birds that peck at the seed mixed into the suet, is usually hung, while a hopper bird feeder can either be hung or placed on a post for easy access by wild birds. A hopper bird feeder contains a large quantity of seed, which is released when the wild bird steps on the feeder trigger. Hopper birdfeeders attract both small and large birds, including the cardinal. Unlike the tube and hopper birdfeeders, the thistle bird feeder is designed with very small holes, allowing only small-beaked finches to access the food. Thistle birdfeeders should be hung, and can be made squirrel proof. The Audubon Society also provides helpful tips on making your backyard friendly to hummingbirds by populating it with humming bird feeders. They suggest that you use several humming bird feeders and fill each with sugar water, being careful to avoid using red food coloring and honey. In addition, you should change the solution in the humming bird feeder weekly, or more often in hot weather. It is certainly possible to make your own bird feeders, but there are several great birdfeeders available on the market, including those made by Droll Yankee, Opus, Woodllink, and Duncraft. To get the most out of your bird watching experience, the Audubon Society suggests that you utilize several different types of bird feeders and that you place them at various heights and locations. In this way, you will attract a wide variety of wild birds. In addition, be sure that your efforts to create a backyard habitat don't harm the birds you are trying to attract. Keep birdfeeders three feet away from windows to avoid collisions, and make sure to keep your cat indoors.

Shedding and Hairballs - What You Should Know About This Common Cat Health Problems

By Paul Kramer

While outdoor cats may shed only twice a year, indoor cats may shed hair for the entire year. This is due to the fairly consistent temperature found inside the house. Older cats tend to shed more than younger ones because they usually have a drier coat.

If you suspect that your cat's shedding is excessive, you should take him to the veterinarian. If no illness is diagnosed, the shedding may be caused by a hormonal imbalance.

Most likely, though, it may be caused by illness, skin allergy or parasites. Daily combing and brushing, combines with hand grooming and an occasional bath, may help control the problem.

If your cat has lost his appetite, has constipation and bowel problems or is vomiting, he could be suffering from hairballs. These are formed by your cat swallowing hair while cleaning and grooming himself.

The hair forms into cylindrical shapes in the stomach, and is then vomited up. Many cats will choose your best chair, your bed, or the living room rug to relieve themselves of a hairball. Hairballs are more common in long haired cats and when cats are shedding excessively.

Daily combing combines with the occasional bath can aid in controlling hairballs. There are also hairball remedies on the market that you can administer to your cat on a weekly basis. These help the cat eliminate any hairballs by lubricating the intestines, thereby allowing the easy passage of the hairball.

Feeding a diet that contains a moderately fermentable fiber source, such as beet pulp, also may be helpful in keeping your cat's intestinal tract healthy. Although a cat that is vomiting may simply have a hairball or have eaten grass, this can be a sign of a more serious illness.

If the hairball has become impacted in his gastro-intestinal tract, the problem is more complex. Watch your cat closely for any unusual behavior or signs he is not doing well. If the hairball is impacted, you may need to take your cat to the veterinarian to have it surgically removed.
