Caring for Corneal Ulcers in Dogs and Cats
The first time you encounter a corneal ulcer in your pet, it can be quite a puzzling, worrisome experience. One day, your normally placid pooch begins to unexplainably paw at one eye, rub their head into the sofa or begin to shake their head to one side. Your pet may begin to tear excessively, or show sensitivity to light and you may notice that the eye is red and inflamed or seems to be covered in a light film; if the ulcers are smaller in diameter, you may see small, cloudy ‘pin pricks’ on the cornea.
Travelling to the Caribbean with Your Pets?
Pull Out the Maracas… and Some Coconuts! Just the thought of the crystalline waters of Antigua, the imposing cliffs of Anse Chastanet Bay or the alabaster stretches of powdery sand on Spice Island, Grenada seem to speak to the primal human need to just… switch off. The rat race can get to us; it manifests itself in our health, our mood, our looks … yet one thing it cannot touch are our dreams of tranquillity, worlds away, on the virginal beaches of the Caribbean. Such a large-scale trip often involves months of plotting and planning, but if we are bringing our much-beloved pets with us, we need to be aware of the issues they may have to face in these warmer climes.
Eight Months Old And Left To Die
He was only eight months old when he was abandoned, leashed to a lamp post, left to fend for himself, without food or water. During the day, people would walk past him without noticing or even stopping to help. Children would poke at him, call him names, and even throw stones at him. But it wasn’t as bad compared to what he had to face when night fell. In the wee hours of the morning, he was target practice for baseball, stones as big as a fist were in place of balls and hurled at full speed peppering his tiny body; wooden planks became bats striking his frail body at every angle. Chained to the lamp post and defenceless against the beatings, all he could do was to cower in his little corner and yelp in pain.

Baby or Pet? Is There Room For Both?
Are you having a new baby but unsure how your pet will react? Having a baby is one of the most exciting times of life and will involve a big adjustment for everyone in the household, even your pets. Instead of abandoning your pet just because you think it is "too much hassle to cope with a dog AND a baby", or "my dog is aggressive and may harm my child", why not keep both with these tips? After all, a pet is a life too, just like a child's.
How Was Cat Litter Invented
Before the mid-1940s, indoor cat boxes were filled with dirt, sand, sawdust, paper, and even ashes and cinders, which were common in a world where people still burned wood and coal at home. All of these materials would attract a cat to bury waste, but they didn't do anything about the especially unpleasant smell of feline urine.
Pet Alive – Herbal & Homeopathic Remedies for Your Pets
What’s the first thing you do before purchasing any food product? The first thing that I do is to check the ingredients list for anything that might not be safe (or fattening) for consumption; this applies to anything that I might decide to buy for my pet. But to be honest, if aliens have names it would be named after half of the ingredients on that list. Call me extreme but I only trust ingredients that are natural or organic. Humans and pets are similar and poor nutrition isn’t the only thing that affects us.
Is Your Dog Allergic?
Allergic responses to foods or environmental allergens may cause inflammation throughout your pet’s body, and the skin, eyes, ears, and gastrointestinal systems can be affected. The primary goal in managing allergies is to balance your dog's immune system. Reducing stress on the immune system allows it to rest and regain its balance. Here's a great natural way to do so...
