Keep Pets Safe in a Summer Heatwave.

 Leave them at home, not in your car.

Dogs feet can burn on hot pavements.

Walk in grass, in shade during the day or wait til the sun goes down.

Cats may prefer a dark cool room to a sun patch.

Feed a little less and make sure your pets are drinking enough.

Add broth or water to both wet and dry food esp. for animals who only eat kibble.

Signs of heat stroke are excessive panting, restlessness or listlessness.

Cool the head, stomach and feet with a damp washcloth or an ice pack.

If your pet is unresponsive, it may need to be medically hydrated by a Veterinarian.

Be Safe.

Is Fish Safe for Our Pets?

 
If you feed Cats & Dogs fish – Salmon,Tuna or Mackerel or Sardines – Be Aware – wild sources are contaminated with drugs and other pollutants.
There are ways to mitigate some of the effects. Use up to a teasp. of Sunflower Lecithin in every fish meal to help remove damaging chemicals from the body. Icelandic Kelp, Organic Apple Pectin and Bentonite Clay is also helpful.
Remember, most processed products use ‘meal’ from many sources of fish & fowl.
Consumers have no control over how this meal is formulated or verified for safety.
By feeding your animals Real Food, you can monitor their reactions better and judge what effects each type of food is having on your pet.
Never used Farmed Fish like Tilapia.
“Research from the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future revealed the gory details of disease-ridden fish farms in Asia, where pig and chicken feces serve as a cheaper alternative to standard fish food. While the FDA vehemently denied any of these goings-on, the Johns Hopkins investigation revealed only 2 percent of imported seafood to the United States is actually tested for contamination. Experts worry that the large amounts of antibiotics given to the fish to ward off infections may give rise to antibiotic-resistant strains of salmonella.” via Eat This Not That Newsletter
This is a very worrisome result of our civilzation with no solution in sight.

If he lets you, that’s big Trust.

Massage all over his little body with a warm damp soft wash cloth;
