Toxic Pet Foods

Most of us know what foods not to feed our pets. Here are some common examples. Alcohol, chocolate or raw yeast. All these can lead to health issues tremors and seizures etc. We also think fruit and vegetables are healthy. Can they hurt our pet? This may or may not surprise you.

Avocado's-especially can be toxic to birds, causing even death. In dogs it effects their breathing. Can also cause vomiting and diarrhea.
Grapes-can cause your dog to have kidney damage. This can eventually lead to increase urination and lethargy.
Onion Garlic-damages red blood cells, anemia, diarrhea, and are poison to both dogs & cats.
Even though this is not  fruit or vegetable. Keep in mind anything containing 
Xylitol-which can be found in sugar free gum, can poison your pet too. This ingredient causes increase insulin secretion, resulting in low blood sugar levels. This is especially toxic for dogs.  
I hope these tips help!

If you had ever had a dog who suffers from seizuresyou will take great comfort in this article. I lost my schnauzer (Baby) who died last year, after a seizures at the age of ten. I had him on two different types of medications. The medication controlled the frequency of the seizures however, it made him restless. I would fine him walking around in circles not being able to settle down. I know as a pet owners, we want the best for our pet. In this article I am sharing someones else's success story. I hope this article helps reach a healthier longer life for your dog.. I know that this will not be the case for every dog, for they're all different. I wish I had read this artcle before. Baby this post is for you, may God hold you in his arms....Thank you, Sandra DeMers for your story.

The New Way for Your Pet To Travel

A new way for your pet to travel using Pet Airways. This company was created for your pet to travel safe and comfortable. Have you ever had the opportunity to see what a pet cargo space looks like? Yikes! 

If you need to travel with your pet and put them in cargo, I recommend looking into this airline. They are always having specials, and currently are expanding to service many states. This carrier also works with shelters, and bring newly adopted pets home. So, if you need to get your pet from point A to B consider this option for their travel. 

Even if your pet is a Pig ! That's right a Pig!

Sweet Potato Apple Dog Treat for Holiday Gift !!

Here is a recipe, I had to post.  

These healthy treats, I am sure your dog will love.. Not only for your own pet, but you can gift as well....

3/4 cup cooked plain mashed sweet potatoes 

3  TB chicken or beef broth (or water)

2  cups 365 Everyday Value® Organic 100% Whole Wheat Pastry Flour, plus more for dusting

1/2  cup fine yellow cornmeal 

1/4  cup finely chopped mint 

1  Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and grated

Preheat oven to 325°F. 

Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside. In a large bowl, whisk 

together sweet potatoes and broth. Add flour, cornmeal, mint and apples and stir until 
combined. Knead the dough a few times until it holds together. Roll out half of the

dough on a generously floured surface until about 1⁄4" thick. Use (2" to 4") cookie 

cutters to cut out treats. Transfer to baking sheets; reroll and cut the scraps. Bake until 

dried and just slightly golden on the bottoms, 35 to 40 minutes. Turn off the oven, leave

oven door ajar and let the treats cool and dry out in the oven for 1 to 2 hours. Store in 

an airtight container up to 1 week.

Hiking with PET & making it work ! Even Your CAT !!

image by jeashoots

While traveling across the United States, we found that having a good pet carrier is a must. You ask, what were our needs? Hiking for several hours in Arches National Park in Utah.... with our CAT !  She is an awesome cat, and for being 14 yrs. old she is a trooper!  Having the perfect carrier at that time, made all the difference. Do you have any favorite Pet Carriers ? Here's a website, I'd recommend to purchase a carrier from. Just go to Wayfair.  The new ones are much more sophisticated!
