RESCUE SHELTER OF THE WEEK
VET TOPIC OF THE WEEK
Dr. Kim Bloomer of Animal Talk Naturally and Apenbloom Pet Care joins me to talk about “Natural” Feeding to prevent fleas and Ticks and how raw feeding can provide natural barriers against these pests. “Bad Blood” is what they call it that makes your pet’s blood very unappealing to these parasites. Listen in on our conversation.
PET HAIR IS HELPING CLEAN UP THE OIL SPILL IN THE GULF - The next time you brush your dog you could help clean up the oil spill in the Gulf Coast.
PET FOOD CALORIE COUNTS (NY Times Well Blog) - Dog and cat owners who buy diet pet foods may be feeding their animals more calories than they realize. Read the opinions of readers from around the country…some think it’s nonsense!
“THUNDERSHIRT” – claims to help calm pets that are afraid of loud noises. Should I look into this for Butch? Yes and I’m going to get him one.
HEART OF A HORSE - (MBB Radio) Recieves their non-profit status. Check out the Web Site and see what April Horowitz is doing in Calfornia to help these magnificent animals and find out how you can help!
MORE FOOD BANKS HELPING TO FEED PETS ALSO – (NY Times) Animal shelters around the country are being flooded with hungry pets, and to tackle the problem, charitable organizations are setting up pet food banks, with products offered within regular food pantries.
PET FRIENDLY HOTELS FROWN ON DOG POOP (Hariet Baskas MSNBC.com) – Really? They must be kidding. I thought dodging pet poop was part of the experience, part of the essence, and yes part of the BONDING process that makes hotels love it when we bring our pets! I don’t mean BONDING poop to the bottom of my shoes! I’m with you Hariet, if people can’t follow the rules of a hotel STAY HOME! It’s the few that make it bad for the rest of us.
CALIFORNIA PONDERING ‘ANIMAL ABUSERS REGISTRY’ – As reported in an article by Alison Stateman in LA on Time’s blog, California State representative Dean Flores introduced this bill in late February but during a time where not only the State has financial trouble but pet owners are also struggling, can it pass when it needs to be funded by tax dollars? Great idea for the registry…let’s watch this one!
FLORIDA TO ALLOW BREED SPECIFIC LEGISLATION - (From Pet Product news intl.)Here we go again. I’m getting really sick of talking about this… Senate Bill 1276, sponsored by Sen. Tony Hill, D-Jacksonville, allows “any local government [to place] further restrictions or additional requirements on owners of dangerous dogs.” My Buddy Butch is a very dangerous and deadly dog… to squirrels….
SENIORS FOR LIVING - I had the honor of being quoted in an article on this great web site for senior citizens. I had a very nice conversation with Marianne Thomas about how having a pet can help seniors with every day life. I have seen the effect having a dog has had on my 86 year old father, so I can speak first hand on the benefits for seniors that adding this new “family member” can bring to their lives! See the article “25 Reasons Why A Pet Helps You Stay Young At Heart.”
Date Wanted – Must Love Dogs and Butch! - I was included in an article about Dogs and Dating! Two of my favorite subjects! Dating is tough enough for me with my schedule but now any girl I meet has to pass Butch’s test before we can go on a date!
