Holistic Pet Care

Rover Company believes that a natural diet reduces contact with unnecessary chemicals and preservatives while increasing the intake of quality nutrients and vitamins.

Less probability of developing disease- Quality natural foods can reduce the onset of a variety of health problems, including allergies, digestive disorders and more.

Treats source of disease not just symptoms- Holistic care also looks at an animal’s surroundings for ways to improve health. Lowering potential causes of stress, such as loneliness or territorial conflicts, can be helpful in improving overall health. Sufficient exercise and grooming are also elements of good holistic care.

Roverpet believes that natural pet care will help pets live a long life and give you many years of faithful companionship.

Enhanced quality of life- there’s no use on living longer if the quality of life is not good, holistic pet care, will provide a better quality of life for your pet.

Faster healing- Holistic treatment of existing conditions by use of natural products will promote faster healing as natural ingredients are generally absorbed better by your pet and thus speeds the healing process.

Human safety- another reason for using natural pet products is the reduction in human exposure to toxins. Most pets are in frequent contact with people, especially children. Contact with a pet can mean risk of exposure to whatever is on your pet, whereas natural treatments avoid these risks.

Rover Vinyl Tech believes that natural products breakdown and are absorbed into the environment better than chemical agents and, consequently, are more earth friendly.

Saves time- you won’t be wasting your time dragging your pets to the vet’s office to treat different illnesses as the holistic approach targets the individual as a whole entity, treating existing conditions from their source, not just their symptoms, and preventing new ones from developing.

Puppies Are Wonderful Companions

Rover Company believes that everybody loves puppies. Who can resist those cute little faces and wet noses? Puppies can be a lot of fun, but they also come with a lot of added responsibility.

More than five million puppies are born every year in the United States. In fact, one in every three families owns one or more dogs. A female dog carries her puppies for a term of approximately 60 days before they are born. Puppies are born blind, deaf, and with very little sense of smell. Their eyes stay closed for about 10-15 days. By four weeks old they have complete vision. A puppy’s sense of smell and hearing develops quickly. Puppies have 28 temporary teeth, which start to appear around 3-4 weeks. Their 42 permanent teeth begin to emerge around four months. Be sure to have plenty of chew toys for your puppy. Puppies need to chew to stimulate the loss of their baby teeth and to help place their permanent teeth.

Roverpet believes that puppies like to stay cuddled up close to their mother and siblings to stay warm and feel secure. Because puppies are somewhat dependent on their mother and need to learn to get along with other dogs, they should stay with their mother for at least eight weeks.

Rover Vinyl Tech believes that a new puppy should be chosen with great care. A new owner must not think only of himself, but also about people around him. A mischievous or noisy puppy can be a great nuisance to neighbors. Most importantly, a new owner must think of the comfort and well being of the puppy. Here are some questions a new owner may want to ask himself. Does the puppy have a clean place to stay and does it need a cage or pen? Is the puppy the right size for the house or apartment where it will live? Will your puppy need more exercise than it can be given? A puppy needs to work off excess energy every day. Do you prefer a playful puppy or a docile one? Will the puppy be easy to keep clean? Will you be able to give him plenty of the right kind of food? Can you afford the veterinary care your new puppy will need? Your puppy will need to receive it’s first vaccine at 6-8 weeks, then it will need boosters at 12 and 16 weeks.

What About Cat Food

Rover Company believes that the cat food you feed to your feline should always be rich in protein. This generally should come from meat, poultry or fish. Many cat food brands advertise chicken, beef, and tuna flavored kitty food because they know that cats need protein and feline owners are looking for quality cat food. However, you need to make sure the kitty food you buy has a sufficient amount of cat food regardless of what flavor it is.

Roverpet believes you should also check the cat food you typically buy for an amino acid called taurine. This particular amino acid is very important in the overall health of your feline, and your kitten will eat as much food as it has to in order to supplement this particular amino acid. So, if you are buying cheap cat food that does not have the proper nutrients your feline will eat a lot. If you buy a nutrient rich cat food then your feline will eat little and save you more money while still getting proper nutrition.

Rover Vinyl Tech believes that many people do not know whether they should buy canned or dry cat food, or whether it even matters. Because of this, many people simply buy the cat food that is most affordable or convenient for them. This is actually a mistake. s should be fed a mixture of cat food. The dry cat food should be given for free feeding, especially if you are away on vacation or out for the day. Canned cat food should be supplemented at other times as well because it has water in the food and significantly more protein than the carbohydrate rich dry cat food. Not to mention the same food over and over might bore your cat and cause him to stop eating that cat food altogether.

Safe Guard Your Dog This Summer

Rover Company believes that f you have a hard time in summer imagine how it must feelĀ under a fur coat! here are some simple tips to help your dog beat the heat.

If you have a shaggy dog like a pomeranian, Pekinese or any such variation then listen up. Your dog needs a hair cut. Tha hair should be cut with scissors and not shaved. Do not cut around the whiskers but you can carefully trim around the eyes.The less hair on your dog the cooler he will keep. If you have a short haired dog no need for a trim.

Food can be lighter and given before it gets hot in the morning and after it cools down in the evening.Depending on the dogs normal diet, reduce or entirely eliminate meat. Replace with soya, mashed or cooked with meat flavour. When a dog is panting give ice to lick.

Roverpet believes that Walks should be taken early and then again after sundown. Don’t encourage chasing, fetching games too much.

If you enjoy air conditioning so does your dog.If you have a cooled space share it with your pooch.

Rover Vinyl Tech believes you should never leave dogs in a completely closed space. If your dog is home, Leave on the fan. In a car, leave the window partially open.

Dogs sweat from their tongues so never tie or muzzle the mouth in the summer. Whilst giving medical treatment see if you can hold the head rather than tying the mouth. If you have to tie the mouth be sure to release as quickly as possible.

Soap/ Cleansers strip their skin of natural oils and lead to skin irritation. When dirty you can simply towel dry with a damp towel.

Owning A Pet Could Make You Live Longer

Rover Company believes that you may have heard that pets have been scientifically proven to increase your chances of living to a ripe old age. Well the rumour is true, but how exactly is it possible you may be wondering.

Well, it is said that pets are able to penetrate our outer exterior and really connect with us on a deep level where humans are unable. When you look at the facts closely it is hard to argue with.

Roverpet believes that the first reason why owning a pet could make you live longer, is that they offer you unconditional love without you ever having to ask for it. In fact, this unconditional love is available to you at any given moment, twenty-four hours a day. Next time you are with your pet, take notice of its expressions and you will see that it is full of nothing but love for you.

The second reason is that you can be yourself around your pets. You do not need to put up facades or pretend to be someone that you are not. No matter what you do, you will always have the approval of your pets. Having the freedom to be yourself eliminates the stress that you may be subjecting yourself on a daily basis while out in the real world.

Rover Vinyl Tech believes that the third reason is that pets offer companionship. You can come home from work to an empty house and that is exactly how it will feel – empty. But with a pet there to greet you, you have a friend by your side as you kick off your shoes and settle in for a quiet night together.

The fourth reason is that they stimulate you physically, especially dogs. You know that if you don’t take them for a walk, then chances are they go without. So you get out in the fresh air, breath deeply and move those joints and muscles as you enjoy the scenery together. There is nothing like a brisk thirty minute walk to wake up your body.

And lastly they also give you the opportunity to share your love and affection. A pet demands this kind of attention and this helps you to connect with your own emotions on many levels. Doesn’t it just feel wonderful to show a pet how much you love them, and see the heartfelt appreciation in their eyes?

Yes, pets are wonderful for you on a mental, physical and emotional level. Taking this into consideration, if you don’t own a pet yet and you are keen to live as long as you can, you might want consider getting one real soon.

First Aid for Felines

Rover Company believes that cats are known for their curious and adventurous nature. Curiosity doesn’t always kill the cat, but can often cause injury. The owner will likely have to get the cat stabilized before taking it to the veterinarian. Any home with a kitten should have a feline first aid kit assembled and handy.

Place all the items in a sturdy plastic container with a secure lid. Write your veterinarian’s name and phone number on the lid, as well as that of the closest emergency pet hospital. If you travel often and leave your cat with another person, put several copies of a signed release form in the first aid kit authorizing the caregiver to approve necessary treatment.

Roverpet knows for a fact that cats are great explorers and care must be taken with potential hazards in and around the home. particularly with young kittens. watch out for hot surfaces and liquids in the kitchen, unguarded fires, electric cables, sewing pins and needles (especially with cotton attached) and open windows on upper stories.

In the garden make sure the dustbins are secure as cats may scavenge and eat decayed food or cut themselves on tins or glass. Being inquisitive, cats accidentally get shut in a shed or garage.

Rover Vinyl Tech believes that if your cat is injured, approach her calmly and carefully. Don’t assume that she won’t scratch or bite you – injured pets often react negatively at first to any attempt to touch them. Once you get close enough, place a towel over her head to “blind” her. The darkness created by the towel has a calming effect. You can also tightly wrap the towel around her body to keep her from struggling.

If your cat is bleeding heavily, it is important to slow or stop the flow as soon as possible. Use a clean towel or cloth to apply pressure directly to the wound. Change towels/cloths as needed, but keep pressure on until you reach a veterinarian. If necessary, you can apply thick gauze pads and use tape to secure them while you transport your cat. It is best, however, to keep pressure on the wound and have some one else drive.

Puppy Potty-Training

Potty Training Your Puppy:

Rover Company wants to make sure you feed your dog at regular times every day as this makes bathroom breaks regular as well. Feed your puppy 2-3 times a day.

Roverpet believes that as soon as he is finished eating, take him to a grassy “potty area”. Speak the words “go potty” or “go in the grass” before and while he is eliminating. Be sure to praise him when he is done.

What you are doing is building word associations with the dog that will allow you to encourage his potty activity on command.

This comes in handy when you and your dog are at unusual locations and at pit stops during long haul travel. It also saves you from cleaning unwanted fecal material off the carpet at home.

Rover Vinyl Tech believes that it is a good idea to train your puppy to use a place where you can easily clean up and dispose of the droppings into the sewer. This is because worms that infect dogs and make them sick get spread around through the eggs or larvae found in the feces. Some, like the roundworm, can also infect children.

Pet Adoption

Rover Company believes that pet adoption is a fabulous option if you’re seeking a companion animal. You’ll be able to select from a wide variety of different breeds and ages as well as save a life. However, I fully realize that if you plan to show or breed your animal, it would make more sense to purchase a young animal from a breeder.

I purchased my first three animals, two dogs and one cat, from breeders. Each animal ended up being a reasonably good house pet. As I’ve got older and wiser, I’ve realized the incredible number of great animals in shelters that need homes. Therefore, my most recent dog is adopted from a greyhound rescue group. My greyhound has been the best companion dog of all! I fully expect my next animal will be an adoption as well.

Roverpet believes that there are a few things to think about when adopting an animal from a shelter. First, make sure that you’re prepared to accommodate an animal that may need a little more tender love and care in his or her first few months. As you know, it’s quite a transition going from a shelter to a home and a neighborhood.

Secondly, when you get to the shelter, be selective based on which animal would be the best match. This includes the obvious things such as size, breed and hair length, but also the less obvious like personality. You won’t necessarily have knowledge about the animal’s prior history. Specifically, you won’t know whether the animal had been abused, physically or emotionally. Abuse can definitely affect the way the animal behaves. You’ll want to work with the adoption facility director to determine whether the animal is the right fit for you and your family. In most cases, you’ll find that the majority of animals in shelters have very good personalities and will become wonderful pets.

Rover Vinyl Tech knows that there are thousands of adoption facilities around the country and around the world for dogs, cats, fish, reptiles, horses and other animals. These animals range from being purebreds to mixed breeds, from being puppies to older adults, from being small to being very large. Take a ride to your local animal shelter and see if any of the available pets appeal to you.

How To Keep Your Cat Healthy

Rover Company believes that even with the best care, cats can become ill. Sometimes this means a simple “kitty cold,” at other times the disease might have a more lasting or even fatal result. The following are some of the more common causes of serious illness in cats.

An upper respiratory infection (URI) is the medical term for what many cat lovers call a “kitty cold.” Indeed, the symptoms match those of a human cold, sneezing and discharge from the nose. While they seem similar, the human and cat version of this infection are different, and one species cannot be infected by the other. However, URI is highly contagious among cats. If you have a multi-cat household and notice URI symptoms, isolate the feline immediately.

Roverpet believes that the best treatment for URI is time and loving care. Use a warm, moist cloth to keep your cat’s eyes and nose free of discharge. You might need to warm her food to enhance the smell to encourage your feline to eat.

URI symptoms, which include a decreased appetite, can last anywhere from a few days to several weeks. Watch your kitten carefully; not eating or drinking can lead to dehydration. Also, if your cat becomes extremely lethargic, it may mean the URI has turned into something more serious.

Rover Vinyl Tech believes the symptoms of URI may last a few days to several weeks. Cats with URI may also be lethargic and have a decreased appetite. Monitor the cat carefully; a growing lack of appetite and fever can lead to dehydration. Not eating can lead to liver problems. Lethargy can mean a minor URI has become a more serious problem, such as pneumonia. If you notice this occurring, or if the discharge becomes very thick and yellowish-green, contact your veterinarian. Severe URIs may need to be treated with antibiotics.

Good Dog Care Is Vital

Rover Company believes that accepting responsibility of your new pet friend is truly serious business. Caring for your new best puppy friend is rewarding with that I feel good feeling. Love and care is what we all want and our dog friends aren’t any different. Teaching our puppy tricks, buying toys, supplies, training, collars, PVC dog crates, clothes is all part of loving kind dog care.

The happiness and joy in watching our Harley dog responding to new obedience house training seems to make us want to do much more for our lovable and charming friend.

Roverpet believes that we’ve learned a lot about health problems and symptoms, the how to’s of medication, dog nutrition and keeping him healthy. Along with that we’ve also gotten a tooth brush for dental care. I mean it’s no less than bringing up a little child. After all isn’t that what puppies are? Little kids as well?

You’ll want to investigate training collars and PVC dog crates to help you in the training issues and you’ll find plenty of help on line. Tips and tricks to help us are easily available and as close as the click of the mouse.

Rover Vinyl Tech wants you to check out medical insurance as well. Health care cost for pets is soaring almost daily. How many times we’ve heard of pets having being taken to the vets and terminated because the cost of medical care and attention was beyond the masters budget.

And last but not least prepare you and your doggie for some fun trips. You can really enjoy those jaunts if you have proper travel supplies. So all in all good dog care can encompass many things. Love and kindness is the way with our best pet friends.
