Dog Clothes

I have read that not all dogs are comfortable on wearing clothes especially  if it is their first time. They felt uncomfortable with it and take the clothes out of their body.  My family’ dog Jihoo is comfortable on wearing one, my mother and sister is looking around the thrift store when they saw baby clothes and they thought it will look good to our pet so they bought it. Dog clothes are not that popular in our place because most dogs are local or what they call askals.

Wearing clothing is a new experience to  dogs so if they are not comfortable on wearing one  try to wear your dog a tank top and  observed how he accept it, little by little he is going to be accustom with wearing clothes.

Homemade Cat Food

Unlike most cat owners in the West cats are feed with cat food while South East Asian countries like Philippines most domestic cats are feed on what the cat owners are eating, like rice and fish. Sometimes our cats doesn’t eat what’s on their food bowl especially when it is too wet or dry and there’s no flavor on it. They eat a lot when there’s fish taste on their food, I have read online that cats in general are very fussy eaters like human they also have their own taste and likes.

That’s why it is difficult for cat owners to find a food that is nutritionally balanced and approved by your cat. The foods with the best palatability are those that do not contain artificial colorings, flavorings or preservatives. Unfortunately many commercially prepared pet foods contain these unnecessary ingredients, therefore be sure to check the labels carefully to avoid these foods.

Pets as Stress Reliever

I love animals, I love pets but there are some people who are allergic of having pets inside their home. One of my friend love pets but she doesn’t like them inside their house,  the big responsibility of petting them scares her.  The idea of giving them bath, cleaning the waste doesn’t attract her though she believed that having pet is  a stress reliever.

Well I guess she really needs one especially she mention her life is stressful now a days.  Pets are good therapy that’s why most of them are used as therapy dog in  popular hospitals they are proven to help patients suffering from coma or depressions.

Kids and Pets

I have read online that having a dog at home is helpful for kids to keep away from infections, those kids living in pet-free environment is healthier than those who doesn’t, they only suffer colds, ear infections in minimal amount.

Well I guess that’s how it works I remember the story of our Sociology instructor about her grand daughter, she told us that her daughter don’t let her baby plays in the dust or mud and every time her grand daughter went dirty her mother will always cleaned and used alcohol so one time she told her daughter to let the baby play so the baby could adapt in the surroundings and get used with dirt because the more she cleaned the baby the more the baby will get infections so I guess this is the same when having a pet as what Dr. Elija Bergroth suggested, exposure to dogs may help to boost babies’ immune systems by bringing in dirt and allergens from outdoors.

Healthy Happy Life for your Pets

It seems it was just yesterday when my sister brought a small puppy at home, now that small puppy grow to healthy and active dog.  Jihoo loves to play but he is mostly on leashed to avoid going anywhere and when ever they free him he always hang-out with another male dog instead of a female one.

Aside from giving your dog proper care and love it is important for a dog to eat healthy and balance diet. We all know that good dog foods are the expensive ones because they are formulated with complete nutrients. In Philippines local dogs eat what there owner eats, dog food are mostly feed to dogs with breed.

Deworming Dogs

Like kids dogs should also need to be wormed,  regular worming can protect your dog against internal parasites. You can either get it in liquid or tablet form. It is healthy to wormed adult dogs once  a year and if they are in contact with children dogs should be wormed at least once in every six months.

Dog worming is not just all about buying the medication for deworming which you can buy cheaply in local supermarket around you. It is essential and important that you know how to do the proper process for the care of your  pet, as what I have read the treatment should begin with heart worms because the medicine that is use to treat this type of worms are  also effective to treat round worms, whip worms and hook worms. Then the last one to be treated is tape worm which tickle the dog’s anus so when you see your dog dragging its rear end, he is probably infected with tape worms.

Dog as Family

This photo below went viral on Facebook and I happened to see it on my wall, the dog named Douglas is helping the paralyzed old man to cross the street by pushing an improvised cart.  Mang Tony (the old man) was paralyzed when he was shot on his back on 1988 and after 21 years he found Douglas who serves as his feet and guide on the street,  together they begged for alms to survive.

Mang Tony is living alone and for him Douglas is not just a friend but his family. Their story is very touching, Douglas is very protective with Mang Tony, I hope the government could help them. Watch the full video here.

Comfort and Pets

Owning a pet is not just like owning a toy that you could play anytime you want, owning a pet is a responsibility that  one should remember. It is like adding one member to the family because they are not just animals or pets that can just neglect when we are busy or something, they need love and attention too because they also have feelings that us human couldn’t understand as.

When I feel sad and lonely and there is nothing to talk too I hug my cat or puppy and sometimes I talk with them like they can understand what I feel, doing so I received a  feeling of comfort.

Anyway I always took a kitten or a puppy if we have one with me  no matter where I go around our neighborhood  especially when buying a viand in the nearby made shift canteen, the feeling of being alone while walking never existed because I have a pet with me.

Cat and Dog

Who said that a cat and a dog wouldn’t be happy together? It is an old saying, belief that cat and dog wouldn’t work together but I guess it depends, look how comfortable Jihoo with his cat friend.  It looks like they’re having a conversation eh, dunno what they are talking about.

Benefits of Dog Kennels

There are times that you are required to travel it is either work related or for leisure. Everything is set but there’s one thing stopping you and that is your pet, no one will took care of your dog while you are away especially if you are living alone. The good thing now a days there are dog kennels where you can place your dogs temporarily for a free. They provide priceless service and provide safe and friendly environment for dogs.

Dog kennels establishments are can be ordinarily found in key cities, mostly in downtown areas and many of them also offer grooming and training services in addition to boarding, there are also some where you can buy accessories and clothes for your dog. Your dog might felt unfamiliar with the kennel surroundings so you should bring him for a walk before deciding to left your dog for short period of time.
