How to take care of our Pets in the fall?

September 6, 2017 admin 0

 

Autumn has arrived , we have less and less hours of light and we are already noticing the lower temperatures … We ourselves try to protect ourselves more during this time to avoid the arrival of colds or other ailments, something that we also have to take into account with our pets.

Everything will depend on the type of pet you have at home, but generally at this time of year one of the things that will notice most are the changes of light, since it is a factor that influences them in the subject of moult, hibernation , zeal … So the first thing we recommend is that you go to your veterinarian to inform you of what can happen to your animal during this time and how should be the most specific care in this regard.

However, let’s look at some basics that you have to keep in mind during the fall.

In the case of dogs, for example, in the autumn the test of leishmaniosis is usually carried out , since during the summer they have been more exposed to mosquitoes, ticks or fleas and perhaps the mosquito that transmits it has been able to infect them.

The cold can also affect the health of our pet and, as we said before, also the lack of natural light. This is especially noticeable in the matter of moult, since autumn is usually one of the seasons of the year in which the hair falls more and in which the cats and the dogs are provisioned of a coarser hair to support better the inclement weather. Brush the animal daily and keep it clean and dry.

Also the birds renew their feathers especially in autumn to be able to face the cold winter. It is essential that it is a natural transition and do not change places when temperatures begin to fall. It is good that the cage is always in a sheltered place, but both the cold and the heat.

It returns to resume the physical activity of the animal. In this case we refer more than anything to dogs, since perhaps in summer if it has done excessive heat we have not given as many walks as we would have liked it is time to go back out for a longer time, although it is good to do it progressively and ensuring that neither cold nor wet with rain.

It prevents the animal from getting wet and drinking water from the puddles. When it rains and we go out on the street to walk our dog may be approaching drinking water from a puddle, but it is important that we avoid it as it may be contaminated and transmit some disease.

With the cold and humidity of autumn, dogs can experience symptoms of osteoarthritis such as stiffness, joint pain … once again, you have to be careful not to get wet if it rains during a walk, and in case this happens dry it very Good when you get home.

Pets can also catch colds , in the case of dogs, they may have the “kennel cough”. To avoid it, it is good to be vaccinated against the parainfluenza virus. If you see that it starts to cough, has phlegm or makes some gesture like something that bothers you in the throat visit the veterinarian.

In general, make sure that your pet does not notice sudden changes in temperature and is kept out of the cold or rain. Think of how these changes affect us, for they equal!

How to get your Pet not too Hot

April 6, 2017 admin 0

 

Our pet is suffering the ravages of high temperatures just like us. Dogs and cats do not perspire so they still find it more difficult to withstand the heat in the summer months because they lack sweat glands that can regulate their temperature, something they do through panting and sweat that appears in the areas where there is less hair and on the pads of the legs. When a cat is hot it licks and smoothes the hair so that the evaporation of its saliva causes the temperature of the body to descend.

We must exercise extreme caution in this time of year when mercury rises and with these tips will help your pet to combat the effects of heat and prevent it from suffering excessively.

Do not go outside with your pet in those times when the heat is tight. This applies especially to dogs, since they are the animals that most come out, so you should walk with them at times of the day where the temperature is not so high.

The first hour of the morning and the last of the afternoon are the best.
Your pet should always have fresh , clean water , even if it does not make excessive heat at that time.

  1. If you are abroad, you should ensure that you have a shaded area where you can shelter. If it is very hot outside it is best to be in an indoor place with air conditioning or fans.
  2. If you see that your dog is very hot and his body temperature is rising too much wet his head and body with water and force him to drink, calmly, a little water. Not too much.
  3. The hair of the animals protects them from the cold and the heat, so if you have it very long you can trim it but without ironing since it can then affect you more.
  4. Never leave the animal inside a car , even if it is in the shade and with the window open. Inside the vehicle can reach very high temperatures and your pet can suffer a heat stroke that costs life.
  5. Try to keep your pet as long as possible in a cool, ventilated place .

Ideas to pay Homage to your Pet

February 6, 2016 admin 0

 

Any time is good to have a memory of our pet to accompany us throughout life. We do not have to wait to lose it in order to pay homage to it, which is sure to be when we want to remember it forever but, like everything else in this life, it is better not to wait for the worst things to happen to do something important and beautiful for those beings who most loved.

That is why today I want to give you some ideas that can serve you to pay homage to your pet at the moment you feel like it; it can be to celebrate your birthday, the date of the day you came to your house, to celebrate World Animal Day or because, simply, you feel like it. That is enough reason to do almost anything …

A very beautiful and emotive idea is to hang a portrait of one of the walls of your house that reflects the beauty of your pet. You may not find it easy to find someone in your environment who is painting well, but you always have the option of ordering it through the Internet so that an expert, thanks to a photo you send him, portrays on a canvas that look you are totally captivated.

Another idea is to get a tattoo that symbolizes all the love you feel for her. It can be realistic, that is, faithfully representing the appearance of your pet, or through some symbol that reminds you of it and so carry it with you always. For example, you can find a way to mark your prints on some paper or surface and tattoo your silhouette. It will be a unique tattoo that no one else will ever have.

You can also make a special gift . It is not a question of spoiling her since these prizes are often associated with an appropriate achievement or behavior, but you can always indulge her or buy something practical or original, such as a design shed, a special trough or a toilet for cats of those who seem a spaceship but that will help you have the house much cleaner and more hygienic.

Finally, you can do a photo shoot to remind her always active and smiling. Our recommendation is that you take it to a professional but if you dare to do it you must take into account that they must familiarize themselves with the camera and that you will have to infuse positive feelings for them to have a good time and be comfortable, and all this is reflected in the photographs.
