12/19/2019 10:10 AM

Getting a little exercise with a cold winter's hike can be a fun activity for you and your dog.

When the colder winter months roll in, you may be tempted to just hunker down indoors and do as little as possible. But your dog still wants to have fun and go on adventures. Just because it's cold, the fun times don't need to slow down for you and your pup. There are many fun activities for dogs to do both at home and outside during these colder winter months. Winter dog activities can include urban mushing, agility courses, outdoor and indoor camping, hiking, restaurant visits, and even just snuggling up by the fireplace. Winter is a great time to make special memories with your furry best friend.

It's that time of year again—the temperatures are dropping, snow is falling, and we have to bundle up in our coats and hats to go outside. As pet owners, it's our job to think about our pets once it gets cold, too, and how to keep them warm whether they're playing in the backyard, going for a winter walk, or working outside.

With a little planning, it might be easier than you think to keep your dog warm outside in the winter. A good rule of thumb is if you're cold, your dog is probably cold, too. If you notice him shivering, rapidly breathing, or his hair is standing on end while you're outside, make sure he has a warm shelter and bed, stays hydrated, is properly dressed for the outdoors, and you dry him off as soon as he comes back into the house (don't forget to get out the snow from between his toes!).

Here are our best tips for your peace of mind and the comfort of your pet during the winter months.

1. Be sure your dog has a warm shelter.

If your dog is spending any significant amount of time outside, even on nice days, make sure he has a shelter, like a dog igloo. In the winter, add an outdoor heated bed or pad (some are even igloo-shaped!) to keep your dog warm—and yes, you can leave them on 24/7, as long as the product has been installed as per the instructions, so you don't have to worry about forgetting to turn them off or on. Note: Don't put additional blankets on top of the dog bed—they can collect moisture and make your dog cold. The heated bed is plenty!

Thermo Tent is a nice option if you want something lightweight and easy to clean and move. Make sure that on windy days, the wind or snow isn't blowing into the dog house.

2. Keep your dog hydrated.

Even when it's cold out, dogs lose a lot of moisture through panting and still get dehydrated.1 And don't rely on snow—it will actually make your dog colder by lowering her core temperature, so it's important to always have fresh water available. A Thermal Bowl will keep your dog's water bowl from freezing over so that she always has access to water.

3. Don't go overboard with grooming.

Bathing your dog too often can give your dog dry, itchy skin, which can get worse in cold, dry weather.2 On that same note, if you get your dog groomed regularly, let his hair get a little longer in the winter to give them some extra warmth, but trim the hair between his toes, because ice balls and de-icing chemicals can cling to it and make your dog very uncomfortable.

4. Bundle your dog up.

If your dog has short hair or a thin coat, she might need a sweater or jacket to stay warm outside. Make sure it covers her belly and is long enough to go from the base of her tail up to her neck. That being said, even dogs with thick hair can get hypothermia, so if your dog is showing any of these symptoms,3 take her inside and consult a veterinarian.

  • Shivering
  • Cold ears and feet
  • Rapid breathing
  • Increase in urination
  • Hair standing on ends

5. Protect your dog's feet.

If it's very wet or slushy outside, consider getting booties for your dog or rubbing petroleum jelly on his feet to protect his pads from salt, de-icing chemicals, or from getting too cold.

6. Dry your dog off when they come inside.

While some dogs dry off better than others on their own, your dog will be much more comfortable if you help her out. Wipe her down with a towel and remove the clumps of snow and ice so she doesn't end up gnawing at her fur and skin to get it off. Check her feet for any snow, salt, or de-icing chemicals. After she's dry, an indoor heated dog bed will keep her warm and cozy throughout the night.

7. Feed your dog more.

If your dog spends a lot of time outdoors in the winter or works outdoors, consider feeding him a little more food in the colder months. Your dog's body works harder in the winter to stay warm, so the additional calories can be beneficial.2

8. Don't leave your dog in the car.

Just as summer temperatures can be dangerous for your dog, winter temperatures can be just as deadly. Cars hold the cold and could put your dog at risk of hypothermia.2

A few precautions can go a long way when it comes to keeping your dog warm when it's cold outside. Walking in a winter wonderland and frolicking in the snow can be fun for both you and your dog, so bundle yourselves up and get out there!

Kitten Playing

Bringing a new kitten home is exciting and scary, especially if you are new to being owned by a cat!

From basic needs to play, sleep, and safety, there are many things to consider when preparing your home for a kitten.

So, what do you need to do to get your home in tip-top shape for your new fur baby?

Read on to find out what you will need to buy, what you will need to put away, and what you will need to cover up.

The Basics

Every kitten needs a few basic items to get started.

Food and Bowls

It’s very important to start your kitten off on the right foot when it comes to her food.

Choose something that is filled with real meat, has limited carbohydrates, and is wet (i.e., not kibble, if you can help it).

Make sure your kitten's food and water bowls are shallow enough for her to easily reach the contents inside.

This is also important because many cats do not like how deeper bowls press against their whiskers when they’re trying to reach food from the bottom. Any steps you can take to foster a healthy eating habit early on will pay dividends later.

Litter and Litter Box

Make sure your kitten's litter box is short enough for her to climb into easily.

If cats find their litter box too hard to access, or too uncomfortable, they can resort to peeing outside the litter box - including on your carpets and even on any clothes you leave lying around!

When choosing the litter to fill the box, keep in mind that curious kittens sometimes eat their litter.

Choose a non-toxic variety, and avoid scoopable clay litters, which can expand in a kitten's stomach and cause blockages.

Keeping Kitty Healthy

A cat's health is most fragile during their first year of life. If your kitten has not received all her vaccines yet, keep her away from other animals in the home until she has been vaccinated.

Kittens are also more likely to experience allergies to chemicals in the environment.

Choose cleaning products that will be used around your kitten carefully. Avoid harsh chemicals and stick to natural cleaners like vinegar whenever possible.

Pest prevention is another health concern, especially if your kitten will be spending time outdoors, or if she shares a home with a dog who spends time outside.

Ask your vet for recommendations regarding flea and tick prevention. Some products are not suitable for very young kittens, but a bath and flea comb can remove most infestations with a little time and patience.

Hairballs may also be an issue for your kitten, especially if she has a long or thick coat.

Invest in a quality brush, and take the time to bond over a weekly brushing.

Kitten-Proofing Your Home

Safety is one of the most important considerations when bringing a new kitten into your home.

Covering up electrical outlets is a good first step, but you also need to cover or hide wires, since many cats will chew or scratch them. To a kitten’s eyes, they may look like a snake that needs to be pounced on and neutralized!

Other common safety hazards are poisonous house plants and sources of water.

Remove any plants that are toxic to cats, and make sure to drain bathtubs immediately after use and keep toilet lids closed at all times. If your cat falls into these unfamiliar waters, she may not be able to get out.

You also need to look for any places that your kitten could get stuck and take care to block them off so she can’t access them.

Common hiding hazards are below furniture, behind appliances and inside mechanical furniture like rocking chairs and recliners.

Food and medications that can harm your kitten should be kept out of reach. Be sure to immediately and thoroughly clean up any spilled medications, vitamins, or supplements. Small items like beads and ribbons that present a choking hazard should also be stored away.

Playtime

Just like human children, kittens spend a lot of time playing. That means they need lots and lots of toys. Stock up on plenty of small toys like balls and mice that your kitten can chase and bat around.

Kittens also love toys that the two of you can play with together. Toys on strings and sticks are a great way to play with your kitten, but keep them put away when you're not there to supervise.

Large toys are also important for young cats. Get at least one cat tree or tunnel for your kitten to climb. Window seats and carpeted cat shelves are also fun for kittens.

Kitty Sleeping

Beauty Sleep

The only activity kittens spend more time on than play is sleeping.

Kittens sleep for 16-18 hours per day, which means they need plenty of comfy places to nap. Cats like to rotate their sleeping places, so one cat bed may not be enough.

Get at least two cat beds and place them in a private, secure location where your kitten will feel safe.

The Need to Scratch

Cats have a strong instinct to scratch, and your new kitten will be no different. Keep a scratching post in each main area she spends time in.

Train your kitten to scratch her scratching posts instead of the furniture to prevent a scratching problem in the future.

Different cats have different tastes when it comes to scratching posts, so you might want to purchase several different kinds to start, in order to get an idea of what she likes.

Some scratching posts are made of cardboard, while others are covered in carpet or sisal.

Most cats enjoy scratchers that incorporate toys, such as the Kitty Tippy Round Cardboard Toy.

Furniture Protection

Scratching isn't the only risk your new feline friend poses to your furniture. Kittens are prone to accidents while litter-training, and can mark their territory with urine if not spayed or neutered soon enough.

If you’re worried about stains, protect soft furniture like sofas and mattresses with waterproof covers for the first little while.

Stock up on enzyme cleaners to remove stains and odors, because while Kitty may learn quickly, she’s bound to have a few mishaps along the way.

If you have any expensive rugs, you may want to roll them up until your kitten is fully litter trained.

Traveling With Your Furry Friend

Your new kitten will need a good cat carrier to travel home with you, to veterinarian visits and other places. Kittens grow quickly, so keep your kitten's future size in mind when choosing a carrier. Just because your kitten is swimming in her new carrier doesn't mean she won't grow into it soon.

And a quick pro-tip for making sure she doesn’t hate getting into her carrier later on when you really need her to: use it regularly!

Even if you put a bed inside it for her to comfortably sleep in, it will get her used to the idea that the carrier is not solely associated with stressful situations like car rides and vet visits.

Wrapping It Up

Here’s a quick recap of things to consider when bringing home your first kitten:

  • Get a quality cat food
  • Get low-profile, high-quality food and water bowls
  • Get an easy-to-access litterbox
  • Don’t use clumping litter that might expand in your kitty’s tummy if she ingests it
  • Get her vaccinated
  • Avoid harsh chemical cleaners
  • Take care to avoid pest infestations like fleas
  • Use a brush regularly to avoid matting and hairballs
  • Cover or hide all electrical wires, outlets, and plugs
  • Remove all toxic plants
  • Never leave deep water sources open
  • Make sure hiding places are either safe or blocked off
  • Don’t leave medication, food, or small objects lying around
  • Get plenty of stimulating toys
  • Get multiple comfortable beds
  • Get enough scratching posts and toys
  • Cover up your furniture if you’re worried about stains
  • Get the right sized carrier and help make it a safe place for your cat

It may seem overwhelming, but by adopting a kitten, you’re taking responsibility for her life! By getting a good start to your relationship, you’ll be setting the stage for many wonderful years to come.

Going on a vacation with your dog requires lots of effort and hard-work. You need to critically plan everything from booking the best airline to finding a dog-friendly accommodation. You want to ensure that your fur-baby has a fantastic time, so you choose the best. Amidst all the preparations, you may forget a few essentials while packing. Of course, it’s hard to stay on top of everything, but don’t worry as we have got you covered. Here is the ultimate checklist that can help you pack for a stress-free vacation with your pooch.

First-Aid Kit

Our canines are curious creatures so they might end up getting themselves in trouble especially in an unfamiliar place. Although the chances may be less, you still need to be prepared for any medical emergency. The first-aid kit needs to have your dog’s medical documents; vaccination records, health certification and whatever the country that you are traveling to demands. Next up let's talk about the medical supplies. An adhesive tape, antiseptic ointment or powder, gauze rolls are necessary in case of any injury or accident. You should also keep a few of your pup’s regular medicines, a thermometer, scissors, non-stick dressing pads, eye and ear solutions, tweezers and a pair of gloves.

Toys

Your pup will need his favorite toys for entertainment. You can also get some interactive toys that can keep him busy in the hotel room or during the flight or car trip (depending upon your mode of travel.) If your pup is traveling in the cabin or along with passengers, make sure the toy isn’t loud enough to disturb others.

Food and Water

Our dogs are picky eaters with a sensitive stomach, so it's better to carry his regular food along unless you are sure it will be available wherever you will be visiting.

Treats

You don’t want your pooch to be a bad boy, right! Well, the solution to tantrums or mood swings is giving your dog delicious dog treats. You can get the small-sized packs for traveling or bake some cookies at home and store them in a container.

Wipes

Carry a pack of wipes handy in your bag for whenever your dog needs some freshening up.

Food Bowls

You will need food and water bowls to serve your dog his favorite food. There are foldable varieties now available in the market to save you space. If you are traveling by air, you will have to keep the bowls in your dog’s carrier so the airline staff can feed him.

ID Tags

The chances of your furry friend getting lost in a new country are high, so it is best to get him an ID Tag. You can note down your information- name and the available contact number, and your pup’s name in case someone finds your pooch and wants to contact you.

No-Pull Harness

Your pooch will be accompanying you while site-seeing, shopping and for walks in the park, so a comfortable leash to keep your pup secure is another essential.

Flea Repellent

Ughh, these fleas, they can be anywhere, so you don’t want to risk this one. Carry any topical product/ a flea repellent spray to keep your dog safe from these insects.

Sunscreen

You might get a little surprised at this one! There are sunscreens available for your dog too after all they can also get sunburns. Consult the vet and buy one for your pooch.

Dog Booties

If the destination you will be touring is going to be cold and snowy, your pup will need a pair of booties for the protection of paws. Make sure your pooch wears it before heading out.

Seat Covers and Carriers (For Car Travel)

If you are heading for an adventurous road trip with your canine, you will need a few other things such as car seat covers to protect the seats, a carrier to safely restrain your pet. You can also take along his bed or crate to make him super comfortable in any new accommodation.

Since the list is complete, it’s now time to hit the stores or order the essentials for your pooch. Remember that a vacation is the only time of the year when you get to relax, so try to make the most of it and make beautiful memories with your fur-baby.

With spring fast approaching, many wild animals begin to venture beyond their natural habitats. Typically, this occurs when they searching for their next meal. Equally, your pet may also be spending increasing amounts of time outdoors. Unfortunately, many nuisance wild animals will mistake domestic pets for food, potentially creating a devastating encounter for pets and their owners. This is why it is important for pet owners to take extra precautions when it comes to protecting their pets, especially dogs, from wildlife attacks. Here’s how.

How to Keep Your Dog Safe

Dangerous wildlife animals can greatly harm favorite family pets, resulting in cuts, diseases and even fatalities. Run-ins with predators including hawks, owls, snakes, coyotes, raccoons, foxes, bears and even alligators are all too common across the country. Being a responsible pet owner means that you will take extra measures to make sure your pet is safe and sound at all times. Here are a few helpful tips on mitigating the risk of your dog being attacked by a wild animal:

#1 Secure Your Fence. For dogs that are granted yard access, ensure your fences are properly secured. This can prevent them from not only escaping, but can also prevent dangerous predators from getting in and potentially cornering a helpless pet. Gaps in fence planks, holes or other easy access points could be detrimental to an outside pet. By fixing any vulnerable places on your fence you can keep your dog safe and sound while they are enjoying the front or backyard.

#2 Keep Your Dog Leashed. Never underestimate the importance of keeping your dog on a leash when going for exercise. A leash lets you keep a close eye on your pet, ensuring they do not venture off by themselves into a wild animal’s territory. Some animals may feel that an encroaching dog is a threat to their safety and will attack out of defense. Others may prey on a lone pet, having sized them up as food. You can lessen the likelihood of such instances by walking your pet and keeping them on their leash for the duration of the walk outside. This is also true for swooping birds where you may be able to save the life of your small dog by keeping him or her leashed at all times.

#3 Secure Trash Cans. Further critter-proof your house by properly securing your outdoor trash cans. Trash and food remnants are inviting snacks for many animals who are searching for food. An open trash can is a direct invite for many predators and a nearby pet could be threatened if these visitors become aggressive. Remember to tightly tie bags and to also keep the lids on your trash bins closed at all times to keep uninvited wildlife away.

#4 Keep Your Pet Up-to-date on Vaccinations

Lastly take preventative measures by keeping your pet up-to-date on their vaccinations, including their rabies shots. No matter the precautions you take, there may still be the threat of attacks from rabid animals who will display very unpredictable behaviors. For instance, bats and foxes pose a very high risk of transmitting rabies to beloved pets. Make sure your pet sees their veterinarian often to prevent the spread of disease from such wildlife attacks.

While the danger of wildlife predators poses a serious threat to homeowners and their pets, there are measures you can take to keep the family dog safe from harm. Consider any of the aforementioned tips to lessen the likelihood of your dog encountering a dangerous wildlife animal.

The death of an adorable little Siberian Husky puppy recently shocked and rocked a small suburb of Sacramento. After he was found snacking on some poisonous mushrooms in the family’s yard, bad reactions from the little pup sent the family to the vet’s office and sadly things took a turn for the worse.

This small and seemingly insignificant oversight proved fatal for this particular young pooch and headlines of his tragic death saddened local area residents just before the Christmas season began to unfold last year. Although this local story didn’t get much in the way of national recognition, perhaps it should have been more widely circulated to serve as a warning to other pet owners.

Siberian Husky Puppy

Not only are animals in danger from these types of often overlooked types of toxins, children can also be at risk when it comes to the consumption of plants that are potentially poisonous if ingested. Technically, mushrooms are considered a fungus and not a part of the plant family, but we can all strive to be better educated when it comes to certain flora that could prove fatal for our four-legged friends.

A Potentially Lethal List

We mentioned poinsettias previously and most of us are already aware this holiday favorite is well-known for being poisonous. But according to the Pet Poison Hotline, they’re only “mildly toxic” to our pets, friends and family. Still, it’s a very valid reason to keep these types of beautiful plants away from our beloved pets (and children).

This stern warning is also followed by an important post from the folks over at the Pet Poison Hotline which highlights the top ten poisonous plants for pets. Here they are in alphabetical order:

  1. Autumn Crocus - these Spring bloomers are renowned for causing gastric distress with pets including vomiting and diarrhea.
  2. Azalea - with the same resulting symptoms including excessive salivation, pets could fall into a coma after eating this popular plant.
  3. Cyclamen - For digging dogs, it’s the root of this plant (literally) that causes problems.
  4. Daffodils - These popular favorites cause equally threatening conditions that can also result in cardiac arrhythmia.
  5. Hyacinths - Another underground potential threat that is associated more with the bulbs rather than their flowers or leaves.
  6. Kalanchoe - A succulent popular with many plant people, it’s also prone to cause diarrhea, vomiting and heart problems.
  7. Lilies - The pollen in these plants has been so problematic, they’re often banned from hospitals and other health-care related facilities.
  8. Oleander - This popular hedge is often seen alongside freeways in SoCal, but they can cause death in severe situations.
  9. Sago Palm - Speaking of down south, the seeds of this popular palm
  10. Tulips - Popular in Danish culture, but traumatic when it comes to canine consumption.

Tulips and Windmills

Conquering This Conundrum

Obviously, the best option for protecting our pets is not having these plants in our possession in the first place. But on the other hand, for plant lovers, we can find some other harmonious solutions in order to avoid this particular problem. For example, keep these types of plants completely out of reach when it comes to your pets (for cats this could be problematic).

For canine lovers, train them to stay away from plants in general, both indoors and out. Especially when it comes to walking your dog since they’re instinctually driven to sniff out and explore other animals urine and feces that are often near foliage. It almost goes without saying the many health risks associated with this type of practice.

Along with all pet owners and animal lovers, we can be more proactive about what goes into their mouths. That’s why we strive to ensure what your pet eats is what’s best for their overall health and welfare. Please reply if you have other important tips and tricks to keep our pets at their best!

What we perceive as a daily activity with our favorite furbabies sometimes seems like an ordinary process. Yet it’s often overlooked given our overwhelming daily tasks and busy schedules. It seems so normal, like an everyday occurrence, but whether we’re walking our dogs on a daily level or playing with the cats whenever we get home, it’s almost routine.

Or is it?

Sometimes we forget about many different aspects when it comes to the overall health of our companion animals. Sometimes this concept is in serious jeopardy when we overlook their overall well being. With the possibility of weight gain due to diminishing activity levels, too many treats, table scraps … all of this can lead to the early onset of dangerous diseases like diabetes and heart conditions that are putting all of us in jeopardy when we’re not exercising enough.

GROWING PROBLEMS

While our nation (along with the worldwide populations) continues to grow in size and stature (pun intended), obesity levels are also rising exponentially especially considering the growing girth of our pets. It’s being passed down to both our children and animals within today’s society. With the day-to-day grind we all experience, sometimes we seem to be more accustomed to the coach then we are to being active outdoors.

Thankfully there are some simple solutions available to help ease this rising threat. While we’re at work, attending school, running errands, etc., we often leave our animals at home. Left their own devices, this can be a time when they could get destructive, Thankfully, there are interactive venues available that include:

  • Contained Cat Toys: These will help to keep these playful puddy-tats involved, entertained and engaged during your absence. They can play-and-play the entire time while you're away. Given the opportunity to follow some enticing object inside a track will keep them away from finding other mischief around the house. 
  • Daily Doggie Downtime: Although this type of a bed might seem counterintuitive to the subject matter at hand or like an excuse for a nap, but it’s also a way for them to wait patiently for their playtime. Both dogs and cats sleep an inordinate amount of time during the day so giving them a comfy place to nap can also be helpful.

For more ways you can keep your canine and cat entertained, exercised and more active, check out this infographic simply titled, “Exercise Your Pet,” for some bright, often overlooked ways to keep your pets perfectly content and active. Whether you’re with them or not, we can still ensure they’re, healthy and full of spunk.
