Does your dog or cat have tinned food? Dry food? Or do they have what you have? Cats are different to dogs in that they are true carnivores. A dog will survive reasonably well on a diet of almost grains with a bit of meat while this type of diet will kill a cat very quickly. Cats need protein and fat in their diets and will suffer kidney failure if this is not supplied.
Does your dog greet you like he has never been so alone? On the other hand, does your cat not only greet you at the door, but you are lucky if you see her unless she is hungry? This is perfectly normal behavior from your pets. Dogs are conditioned to give affection to their owner at any given minute while cats are more aloof. This does not however mean your cat does not like you.
To have 3 or even 4 squirming, seemingly healthy kittens one day is fantastic, although worries almost certainly creep in. How do I care for these kittens, along with the mother, am I going to be able to get rid of them later on, etc. But what certainly is not factored in is that you may start with 3 or 4, but the next day, you only have 2 or maybe 1.
Your dog is ready to give birth and you cannot wait. Or maybe you can when you think of all the new work this event is going to bring. But you leave her to get on other things, perhaps allowing the children to report on any goings-on and any other things. The kids report and there are 6 puppies, but when you check later, you only find one or two. What happened? Surely, she didn’t consume her pups did she? No, there has to be another reason 4 or 5 of the pups have disappeared. Or maybe the kids didn't count properly. Unfortunately the truth is very unpleasant.
Washing your dog will make it a much more friendly pet. But how often you should wash your dog varies and will depend on a number of factors. These include breed, is anyone in the house allergic to dogs, out door and in door behaviours of the dog and how quickly its fur begins to smell. Some dogs might require no washing at all, or maybe just once a week or once a month. Some breeds have different kinds of coats that can handle dirt better than others, requiring less wash. If someone is allergic to dogs in the household washing the dog often will help avoid the build of dander and trigger less symptoms of an allergic reaction. If your dog sleeps and jumps on your indoor furniture often, you’ll probably not want any dirt or filth that is drawn on your dog ending up on the furniture either.
Exercising your dog is important to maintaining its physical and mental wellbeing. They are naturally meant to be active animals. But like most domesticated pets, most dogs lay around inside or outside their home. While this might seem kosher, the backyards of most homes are not adequate to meet the level of physical exertion needed for a dog to stay healthy and alert.
Dog is man’s best friend as the old saying goes, and perhaps nothing demonstrates this more than a dignified Labrador assisting the blind through the mayhem of a bustling inner city. Well, I suppose there are Avalanche Dogs, who frequently surpass human courage in their emergency efforts, but then again they have an enviable access to their own supply of Rum, so the comparison is unfair.
Few of us can expect to be as pampered, revered and remembered in retirement as Black Caviar, the illustrious thoroughbred that gripped the hearts and bulging pockets of punters world wide in her undefeated racing career between the years of 2008 and 2013, when she retired on the 17th of April. Comparable in fame and influence only to Phar Lap, the two helped their respective admirers ride out the gloom of historic economic downturns and provide well-needed triumph and windfalls when most needed. For this reason, and for the sheer grace and effortlessness with which she dominated international meets from Flemington to Royal Ascott, Black Caviar has earned her place in Australia’s historical imagination.
Maybe you can never understand that what dogs communicate to each other in their languages but there are many people who want to learn what their dog barks mean. Have you ever wished you could understand what your dog says to you when it is barking? Don’t you want to understand what your dog is trying to communicate to you?
You should know the types of aggressions a cat can produce under which circumstances and situation. It will help you avoid your children getting swiped or injured by your pet. If your cat is attacking you or your children, you need to get to the bottom of this and try to stop it.
