Halloween Safety Tips for Pets

By on Oct 5, 2017 in Pet Remedy News | 0 comments

Halloween can be a fun time for children and families. But for pets it can be a nightmare. Avoid the stress and dangers this year by following these easy tips. Trick-or-treat – not for pets All forms of chocolate — especially baking or dark chocolate — can be dangerous, even lethal, for dogs and cats. Symptoms of chocolate poisoning may include vomiting, diarrhea, rapid breathing, increased heart rate, and seizures. Halloween sweets containing the artificial sweetener xylitol can also be poisonous to dogs. Even small amounts of xylitol can cause a sudden drop in blood sugar and subsequent loss of coordination and seizures. Keep pets confined Not only will your door be constantly opening and closing on Halloween, but strangers will be dressed in unusual costumes and yelling loudly. This is scary for our furry friends. Putting your dog or cat in a secure room away from the front door will also prevent them from darting outside. Keep Halloween plants such as pumpkins and corn out of reach Although they are relatively nontoxic, such plants can induce gastrointestinal upset should your pets ingest them in large quantities. Intestinal blockage can even occur if large pieces are swallowed. Don’t keep lit pumpkins around pets Should they get too close, they run the risk of burning themselves or knocking it over and causing a fire. Don’t dress your pet in a costume If you do decide that your pet needs a costume, make sure it isn’t uncomfortable or unsafe. It should not constrict movement, hearing, or the ability to breathe or bark and meow. If they seem distressed, allergic, or show abnormal behavior, then its best to go without. Festive bandanas are a good alternative. ID tags If your dog or cat should escape and become lost, having the proper identification will increase the chances that they will be returned. Just make sure the information is up-to-date. Use calming solutions Halloween can be a stressful time for your pets. To help them out, consider the use of a calming product such as Pet Remedy during the festive period. A plug in diffuser placed in the home will help them to fell relaxed and less stressed out by all the decorations, noise...

Keeping Your Pet Calm at the Vet

By on May 20, 2017 in Pet Remedy News, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Visiting the vet can be stressful, both for you and your pet. Keeping your pet calm can be a challenge, especially if your pet is extremely sick, as there can be a good deal of anxiety involved in the efforts of trying to make them get better. Stress is hard on your pet’s well-being, and the goal of taking them to the vet is to help them live a healthy, enjoyable life! Here are a number of useful tips that you can use to reduce your pet’s anxiety before, during, and after their next vet visit: Plan Ahead Being well-prepared ahead of time can go a long way to ensuring that the visit goes smoothly and stress-free. Have all your pet’s paperwork and medical history easily accessible in case you ever need to find this information quickly. When dealing with a medical emergency, the last thing you want to have to do is be on the search for these details. If your pet needs to be transported in a carrier, ensure that it is easily accessible and assembled. You may wish to place a copy of your pet’s medical information nearby or tucked inside the carrier to make everything easy to find. Every so often, bring out your pet’s carrier and spray it with Pet Remedy calming spray so they can get familiar with it and associate it with a calm, safe environment. Another way to plan ahead is to have your pet become familiar with your veterinarian clinic to help create a positive association with that environment and experience. One way to do this is to do a test run to the vet, complete with lots of treats and positive affirmation, to gain a general sense of how comfortable your pet will be when they actually will need to go to the vet. Some veterinarian clinics offer grooming or nail trimming services, which is an excellent way to get your pet familiar with visiting your vet regularly.   Keeping Your Pet Calm at the Vet On the day of the visit, treat your pet with extra care and attention. Treats, affection, and using a calm tone of voice all help to ensure that your pet is as comfortable...

By on May 3, 2017 in Pet Remedy News, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Adopting a new pet is an exciting experience. Many prospective pet owners spend weeks, months, and sometimes years waiting until the perfect time to welcome a new pet into their new home.It’s exciting to finally find the right dog or cat to bring home and help them enjoy a healthy, happy life with you. It can also be overwhelming, both for you and your new addition to your family. Keep in mind that your pet is going to be taking in a whole range of new sounds, sights, people, and places. Especially if you are rescuing your dog, cat or other animal from a traumatic situation, the adjustment to an healthy home life can take some time. Being well prepared is essential when adopting a new pet, and many stressful situations can be easily prevented by getting ready ahead of time. There are a number of things that you can do to ease any challenges during the adjustment period. Prepare your home for your pet. Put away anything that would be large enough for your dog or cat to swallow and choke on, decide on a place where your pet’s food will be kept. If you are getting a cat, finding a location for the litter box and investing in a scratching post will help ease the time of transition. Ask your adoption organization what items would be best for your animal to be sure that you have everything on hand ahead of time. That way, you can focus your energy on enjoying your pet’s company and helping them get settled into your home. Prior to having your pet arrive, ensure that every member of the household is in agreement with the way that training will be approached. Discussing possible issues that may arise ahead of time (whether it’s a cat scratching furniture or a puppy needing to be litter trained) will prevent unnecessary stress by ensuring that everyone is on the same page. Having a plan in place to address potential challenges will also instill more confidence in you, as the pet owner, to be able to handle anything that might come up. Ask friends and family for vet recommendations and have their emergency number easily accessible. Plug...

Horse Anxiety and How to Treat It Naturally

By on Mar 3, 2017 in Pet Remedy News | 0 comments

Are you wondering how to calm your anxious horse? Horse anxiety can cause difficulties for training and riding, and this can sometimes lead to making it challenging to find them a good home, if they are on the market either now or at some point in the future. Most importantly, however, an anxious horse is susceptible to a wide range of health problems. Just like stress is hard on a human’s health, anxiety can result in many different health challenges: whether it is that they become underweight because they burn more calories and sometimes have difficulty eating, or their joints undergo more stress because of the pacing and stall walking. What causes horse anxiety? There are many circumstances that may lead to horse anxiety. The way that a horse’s brain works is much different from that of a human, or even a household pet—like a cat or a dog, and the same goes for their anxiety as well. When horses were in the wild, they were prey to predators who would creep behind them to attack, which means that horses have been hard-wired to react quickly to subtle signals; this personality trait can make them quite jumpy in general.    Most commonly, horses are known to experience separation anxiety and performance anxiety and watching your horse closely to understand the signs and symptoms of different types of anxiety can help you get to the root of the problem. Because horses are herd animals, isolation can be very difficult for them as it instinctively makes them feel unsafe. Similarly, horses are historically used to being outdoors for long stretches of time, so if your horse is in his stall for extended periods of time, or turned out alone, it might affect his well-being. If your horse is fed in the morning and at night, only being fed hay during the day, this can sometimes cause stress on a horse’s sensitive digestive track, which is better suited to grazing steadily the entire day.   When it comes to performance anxiety, the long history of training horses for competitions involves the natural desire for a horse to please their owner. Giving clear directions and avoiding mixed signals are essential for reducing a...
