Protein
Dietary protein supplies essential amino acids and is needed for the manufacture of antibodies, enzymes, hormones, tissues, and
proper pH balance. Protein provides energy for cats and is essential for growth and development. Complete proteins contain ample amounts of essential amino acids and are found in foods such as meat, fish, eggs, and poultry. Incomplete proteins do not provide all essential amino acids and are found in many foods including legumes, grains, and vegetables. Plant proteins don’t supply the essential amino acids that a cat needs, such as taurine which come from animal protein. Cats need protein from animal sources as the amino acids from vegetable sources are not well utilized. Overall, cats have a very high requirement for protein.

Fat
Dietary fat is a concentrated source of energy for the cat. It also provides essential fatty acids and aids in nutrient utilization and transportation. Fat is involved in cell integrity and metabolic regulation. Saturated fat is found primarily in animal sources while polyunsaturated fat is found mostly in plant sources.

Linoleic and arachidonic acids have long been considered to be essential fatty acids (EFAs) for cats. More recently, DHA has been added due to its important contribution to feline vision, reproductive health, and the immune system. EPA may also be of benefit. Unlike some animals, cats do not efficiently convert plant sources of EFAs to the needed derivatives. For example, cats must eat meat to obtain arachidonic acid. Also, cats do not convert LA to GLA (as some animals do), but studies show that GLA can benefit feline skin and coat health. The cat would also consume Omega 3s and CLA when eating its natural herbivorous prey.

Minerals
Minerals are essential to the cat and are involved in almost all physiological reactions. They contribute to enzyme formation, pH balance, nutrient utilization, oxygen transportation, and are stored in bone and muscle tissue. Biological availability may vary widely depending on the source of the mineral. Elemental minerals are generally taken from the earth or water. Chelated minerals are those that are bound with other organic substances often making them easier for the body to absorb. Minerals include calcium, chloride, chromium, cobalt, copper, fluorine, iodine, iron, magnesium, manganese, molybdenum, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, silicon, sodium, sulfur, and zinc. There are other mineral elements required by cats at trace concentrations. Minerals, like vitamins, work synergistically. They have a cooperative action between them.

Vitamins
Vitamins are essential for metabolism regulation, normal growth and function. Vitamins are found in food and some are synthesized within the animal’s body. They’re classified as either water- or fat-soluble. Fat-soluble vitamins include A, D, E, and K. Water-soluble vitamins include C and the B-complex. Generally, fat-soluble vitamins are stored in the body, while water-soluble vitamins pass through more quickly. Once again, the carnivorous cat utilizes animal sources of nutrients more readily than plant sources. For example, cats cannot convert beta-carotene from plants to vitamin A (as some animals do), so they need preformed vitamin A from an animal source. Preformed vitamin A needs no conversion.

Water
Because cats are designed to fulfill most of their water requirements by eating fresh raw food, they naturally have a low thirst drive. This can lead to health issues for cats that eat dry cat food products and treats. One of the problems is that even though they become dehydrated eating the kibble, their natural “programming” may not encourage them to drink more water. And their urine can become too concentrated. Even though a healthy cat doesn’t drink much, you should always have clean good quality drinking water available to them. And please make sure it’s good quality water, which means tap water may be out, especially if your community puts fluoride and chlorine in the water supply. If you have well water, have it tested annually for contaminants.

10 Reasons to Use All-Natural Pet Care Products/ pet care product – pet-s28

Just as you wouldn’t use harsh chemicals on a newborn baby, you should also try to avoid chemical-packed pet care products. Fortunately, as people move toward Earth-friendly and natural goods, more and more all-natural pet products find their way to market. Choosing to go all-natural for your pet may reduce your overall pet care product choices, but what you do end up using will be much better for your best friend. Here are some of the many benefits to switching to all-natural pet products.

 

1. A proven track record
Many forget that chemical and synthetic products are somewhat new arrivals on the shelves of markets and pet stores. Natural remedies, on the other hand, have been around for centuries and are time-proven solutions to common maladies facing your pet.

 

2. Natural products are good for the environment
Chemicals eventually make their way back into our water supply, our air and our soil, thus damaging our planet and wildlife. Our pets interact daily with the planet, and when the environment is chemical-laden, expect your pets to ingest chemicals, too. Natural products do not have these nasty environmental side effects.

 

3. Synthetic compounds can damage an animal’s skin and fur
Natural flea and tick remedies, on the other hand, have essential oils that benefit an animal’s coat and skin while ridding your pet of fleas and ticks.

 

4. Pesticides used in pet shampoos can trigger adverse reactions in many animals
These range from simple allergic reactions to premature death. Avoid these pesticides, choose natural, and know that your pet is safer.

 

5. Natural products are often handmade with care
The quality of handmade products often surpasses the quality of industrially made ones.

 

6. Certain chemicals used on pets are not meant to be ingested
But just like children, animals swallow, chew and lick just about anything, including those poisonous chemicals. Opting for natural pet care products will ensure your pet’s health and safety.

 

7. Synthetic products affect our bodies as well as those of our pets
Natural products leave our air clean and our bodies happy.

 

8. Natural products are often made by local boutique stores
Synthetic products, on the other hand, are made by large chemical plants. By supporting all-natural products, you are supporting small local businesses.

 

9. Most all-natural products are not tested on animals
Pet owners can agree that this is an important attribute of all-natural supplies.

 

10. Synthetic pet products often provoke more allergies in animals
This is due to the many additives used. Pets are less likely to experience allergic reactions to natural products, so you can feel at ease when applying them to your best friend.

Cat Products – Cat Toys / product cat – pet-s26

Finding the perfect cat bed…a dream come true for your precious feline. If you can’t find your cat, it might be time to get her a cat bed. Chances are she’s sleeping somewhere cozy and perhaps not where you want her. If you would rather your kitty didn’t nap on your bathrobe or the guest bed, you may want to get her an extra appealing cat bed of her own.

There are a variety of cat beds to choose from and you can definitely find one to suit your cat best. They range from mini-furniture to suit your décor to simple pads to lay on your cats preferred napping places. Here are some tips to help you find the best bed for your kitty.

Cat Bed Features to Consider

  Materials/Fabric

  Comfort

  Placement (floor, desk, bed, window bed, etc)

  Style/Design

  Size

  Wash-ability

  Dry-ability

  Ability to remove or replace cover

  Durability guarantee

The most important feature to consider in choosing a cat bed is what your cat will consider comfortable. Cats like to be warm in the winter and to keep cool in the summer. The cozy-factor of a cat bed is critical. A cup style cat bed is often the perfect fit for a curled up kitty and can help her retain body heat. With an especially cold house, you might even consider a heated cat bed. If you need something cooler consider a simple pad cat bed, which may be nothing more than soft fabric or stuffed for a plusher feel. Whichever style you choose it needs to become your cat’s favorite or she won’t use it.

The best way to convince your feline friend to nap in her new cat bed however, may not be what style you choose, but where you put it. A quiet place without too much traffic, but in view of the household activities is the best place. If you choose a cat bed that is easily moved, you can adjust the bed’s placement depending on the temperature or the time of day. Some cat beds can even be set up as a window perch, so in between napping your kitty can have a view of what’s going on outside.

PetSmart Grooming Service for Dogs & Cats / pet-s24

Dog grooming refers to both the hygienic care and cleaning of a dog

Dog grooming refers to both the hygienic care and cleaning of a dog, as well as a process by which a dog’s physical appearance is enhanced for showing or other types of competition. A “dog groomer” (or simply “groomer”) is a person who earns their living grooming dogs.

Reasons for grooming

Grooming is an important part of dog care. Depending on the breed, age, and health of the dog, grooming may be a daily activity. Many breeds require significantly less grooming than this, but regular grooming helps to ensure the dog is healthy and comfortable. It is important to note that while many dogs shed, others (such as the Poodle), do not shed (see Moult) as profusely, and require grooming by a professional every 6-8 weeks maximum. The main reasons for daily grooming include:

  • decreased chance of various health problems, such as thrush, scratches, and other skin problems
  • general cleanliness of the dog
  • monitoring of the dog’s health by checking for cuts, heat, swelling, lameness, or changes in temperament, all of which could be indicative of illness
  • forging of a closer bond between dog and owner

Tools of grooming

 

ade of rubber or plastic with short “teeth.” The tool is rubbed (or “curried”) over the dog’s coat to loosen dirt, hair, and other detritus, and stimulate the skin into producing natural oils. Metal currycombs should never be used, as they are designed for removing hair from brushes only. Currycombs usually have the handle made of plastic or wood. They are more commonly used for dogs that have large amounts of hair that has shed such as for the German Shepherds. They are also used for untangling knots in certain parts of the dog’s body such as ears, paws or tail. Using a currycomb must be done carefully as the action of this type of tool can harm the skin of the dog, if pulled too hard.

 

Shedding blade: A metal shedding blade with short, dull teeth is used to remove dead hair from certain types of harsh coats. The shedding blade is not used to cut the hair.

Scissors and Clippers: Cutting tools used to remove/shorten hair on certain types of coats or in sensitive areas.Not all types of coat are suitable for clipping ie double coated breeds such as Border Collies are designed to keep the dog cool in summer and warm in winter, and should not be clipped unless the dog is matted.

Stripping Combs/Knives: Tools used to help grab the longer hairs on a harsh coat and pull them out by the root. Helps maintain a proper coat in many terriers and schnauzers. Most often used on show dogs.

Grooming a dog before it is bathed is important as it frees up and removes dead undercoat and matting, and allows proper penetration of water and shampoo to the skin. This can be done by using a slicker brush all over its body, especially on its legs, and the places where knotting occurs frequently. Groomers sometimes use a metal comb when combing for the second time, paying more attention to the toes and between the toes. Metal combs can be helpful in the areas of the dog’s body that are common spots for knots. Brushing and combing the tail is also important as it is a commonly missed area.

Dog brushes come in various sizes and shapes can be made from metal, plastic and Wood. Although there are many types of dog brushes, they are not very popular amongst the professional dog groomers as most of them prefer using teasels. Dog brushes are perfect for breeds that have long and fragile hair, especially if the coat is getting properly taken care of. Common dog brushes are the bristle brush, wire pin brush, and the slicker brush.

The bristle brush is one of the most widely used types of brushes mainly because it can be used for any type of coat. As a general rule, longer and widely-spaced bristles are suitable for dogs with longer coats and shorter and tightly-packed ones are better to use on dogs with short hair. Typically, the bristle brush is used on dogs with long coats to finish the coat and to bring out the natural lustre and shine of the coat. It is commonly used in daily grooming as it removes surface dust and dirt.

Dogs with medium to long hair are often brushed with a wire pin brush. The wire pin brush is also great for dogs with curly coats. They usually have an oval shape and have meal bristles set in a flexible rubber base. This type of brushes is great for dogs with long, wiry, wavy and curly coats as they are useful in separating and untangle the coat. Pin brushes are of better quality if they have polished pins or coated pins which prevent from scratching and harming the dog’s skin. Because the coating or polish may go away over time, the pins of such a brush should be replaced once in a while. Pin brushes come in a variety of sizes, textures and fullness, depending on the type of coat that they are needed for.

Slicker brushes are typically used after primarily brushing with a bristle or a wire pin brush. They are used to smooth the coat and to take out mats and tangles. They are provided with fine wire pins that are secured to a flat base. The pins are bent at an angle approximately halfway down the pin. [2] The slicker brush is typically used on dogs with long coats and those with curly coats. For heavier and thicker coats, one is recommended to use a brush with stiffer pins. This type of brush comes in a wide range of sizes and degrees of pin stiffness.

There are also brushes that combine the pin and bristle styles. This type of dog brushes are maybe the most convenient as they have the advantage of having two brushes in one. The combination pin/bristle brush has two different sides, one with bristles which can be successfully used for grooming the short hair areas of the coat, and another side, with pins that can be used for long-coated and double-coated dogs.

Rakes are important grooming tools especially for double-coated dogs such as the Newfoundlands or Siberian Huskies. They are good in removing dead hair from the undercoat. The undercoat rake’s teeth are especially designed to penetrate through the overcoat down into the thick undercoat to remove loose hair faster and easier than a standard comb. Rakes can also be used for untangling and dematting.

The typical pair of scissors for dog grooming is between four and six inches long and preferably has a blunt tip to prevent any injuries due to the dog moving around. Other variations include curved scissors, left-handed scissors, thinning scissors and different types of handles to improve comfort while using the tool.

The Coat King is a particular type of stripping knives, useful in hand stripping for the removal of dead undercoat prior to clipping. These tools are suitable for many dog breeds and coats and they have become more and more popular among dog owners and groomers. They are a good tool for removing loose hair, and thick undercoats. Also, they can be used for dematting and detangling. Although they are quite a new grooming instrument, they are now widely used and recommended for dog owners.

Stand dryers are also available for a quick drying of the dog’s coat. Commonly, when a dog is brought to a groomer this implies a thorough cleaning of the coat as well. And because the dog cannot leave the shop while wet, special driers have been manufactured. These can be stand driers, cage driers or hand driers and are more common in professional grooming places than in the owner’s house.

Dog grooming supplies

Apart from the elementary grooming equipment that is a must for every owner who wants to groom his dog, there are other grooming supplies as well. Shampoos and conditioners are common grooming supplies used by every dog owner. They can be found in every specialty store or on the Internet. Owners are recommended to use only shampoos, conditioners and rinses that are especially designed for dogs. Similar products that are designed for people might be harmful to the skin of the dogs. They are used to clean thoroughly the coat and some of them are even intended to fight against fleas and ticks. Canine shampoos and conditioners are available in a wide variety of fragrances and strengths, with uses including whitening, colour enhancing/darkening, deep cleansing, sensitive skin/puppy shampoo, remoisturising, flea and tick removal/repellent, and volumising.

Bath tubs are supplies more commonly found in professional grooming shops. They are made of a variety of materials, including galvanized steel. Also, these shops may have bathing systems and sprayers available for a better grooming as well as for the comfort of the pet.

Dog owners who want to groom their pets at home will need ear and eye supplies. Cleaning the ears and the eyes of the dogs is also part of a complete grooming. Different ear and eyes kits are available on the market and they are especially designed for this matter. They are however meant to be carefully handled and one should not use other products in cleaning the dog’s eyes and ears than those that are intended for it.

Dental care is also to be considered while grooming. This is however quite a difficult mission, given that dogs hardly allow their teeth to be brushed. The dental kits available on the market include everything from special tooth paste to toothbrushes. Many models of toothbrushes include a three flexible head design which maintains the proper pressure on all surfaces of the tooth with every stroke. These brushes have side bristles set the 45 degree angles to reduce the arm twisting and soft outer bristles for massaging the gums. Toothpaste designed to be used on dogs is usually natural sugar free toothpaste with different flavoring. Foaming or rinsing is not necessary.

Finishing touches can be added with finishing supplies, including perfumed sprays, ribbons and many other accessories.

Flea control products are also part of grooming supplies. There is a wide variety of flea and tick control products that are applied to dogs while grooming. If ticks or fleas are found on the pet, they must be quickly removed and grooming is the perfect time to do it. The specially designed such products must be used for few months in order to ensure that the pet is parasite free.

Grooming tables make the entire activity more comfortable and safer, but they are normally used by professional groomers and owners who have dogs that enter competitive shows. These tables do provide a secure and productive environment for grooming, but many single dog owners can avoid this expense by simply using what is available in the home.

Bathing

Dogs can be bathed by being sprayed with a hand-held shower head, or doused with water from a bucket. Often, one bath will not make a dog truly clean. A second bath is excellent to ensure the entire body has been cleaned. Dogs should be bathed with warm, not hot water, in order to make it a more enjoyable experience. Dogs with a heavy or matted coat should never be bathed without first being completely brushed out or clipped of any mats.

Many types of shampoos and conditioners formulated for dogs are available; however, using a shampoo without mixing it with water may be a bit strong for a dog that’s just getting a touch-up bath. If the dog isn’t filthy, water is mixed with shampoo in a 1:1 ratio to make it easier on the dog and to make sure it rinses entirely. If any shampoo remains on the dog after the bath, it may become irritating to the skin. Most dogs do not require frequent bathing; shampooing a coat too often can strip the coat of its natural oils, causing it to dry out.

Hair removal

 

The coats of many breeds require trimming, cutting, or other attention. Styles vary by breed and discipline. While some hair removal has its origins in practical purposes, much is based on the taste of the owner, whether or not the dog will be shown, and what work the dog does.

The rubber grooming gloves and dog brushes are intended to drag loose hair from the short-coated dogs and are ones of the most popular grooming tools amongst pet owners. They are easy to use, as using them basically means massaging the coat in firm strokes and have the advantage of being suitable for both wet and dry coats.

Stripping

Stripping or hand-stripping is the process of pulling the dead hair out of the coat of a non-shedding dog, either by using a stripping knife or the fingers. A hard, wiry coat has a cycle where it starts growing and then sheds as it reaches maximum length. Hand-stripping coordinates the shedding and makes room for a new coat to grow. Stripping is the proper method grooming for most terriers, and is required for show dogs of many hard-coated breeds. The hair is removed with either a stripping knife or stripping stone, with the top coat removed to reveal the dense, soft undercoat. If done correctly, the procedure is painless. Many dogs are reported to enjoy having their hair stripped, especially when they are introduced to it as puppies.

Nail trimming

Nail trimming is essential for maintaining good health. If a dog’s nails are allowed to grow, they will curl over into a spiral shape; walking will become increasingly painful to the dog as they grow, putting pressure on the dogs toes (a bit like walking in shoes that are too small). Uncut nails may curl so far that they pierce the paw pad, leading to infection and debilitating pain. If one does not trim a dog’s nails on a monthly basis the quick will grow along with the nail, making it nearly impossible to cut properly. Owners may choose to trim nails themselves or may opt to take their pet to a groomer or veterinarian.

Nail trimming is done with a nail clipper. There are two main types of nail clippers, the guillotine clipper and the standard scissors nail clipper.

Glass Food Storage Containers

 

If indeed you want to save money in the kitchen then there is the need to keep your food edible for long periods as much as possible. There are certain food products that can last long like vegetables and fruits but others like perishable items and leftovers normally cannot last that long. It is possible that you have tried other methods like the use of plastic wraps and baggies but these will leave an unmanageable pile of items in the refrigerator. That is a number of people have started using the glass food storage containers.

These glass food storage containers will help to store your food in a well sealed environment and still being able to properly organize it. This is a type of storage container which is made of a timeless material and is also totally safe and airtight. They normally come in a number of varying sizes. This is to ensure that they are able to accommodate varying kinds of food. When it has varying sizes, then it will be possible to maximize the efficiency of the storage.

This is because there will no need to worry about buying replacements due to melting or warping. Moreover, for these glass containers it will never leach any plasticizer into the food like the plastic containers do because of its high temperature. You can also wash the lids in the dishwasher if you ever are able to use top rack. In terms of sanitary conditions, just wash the glass containers with the countertop water filters.
