Thursday, March 14th, 2013

For a regular young adult, working 8 to 10 hours a day is very common, and having pets; you have no other choice but to leave behind your furry friend alone at home. Some pets that are left alone for such long hours is just fine, but for some other pets, especially those sensitive pets, being left alone for hours and hours can cause health problems and depression that can soon result in a more serious condition.

Based on some studies conducted by researchers, having a pet cannot only provide companionship benefits but also health benefits for their owners. Their studies show that having pets around the house and interacting with them actually lowers your chance of having heart attacks as well as lowers your blood pressure levels, and these results have astonished everyone. Nowadays, medical teams and experts are beginning to incorporate this type of therapy into their programs to get far better results.

So it’s just sensible that you repay their companionship, love, and affection by simply choosing and checking them in the ideal pet care provider the moment you need to leave them behind because of work or personal issues. Below are some simple tips you can consider when picking the ideal facility for your furry friend.

See if all their pet care providers are well-trained and are certified to take care of different types of animals. Knowing that they have a vet on call will also be a great advantage for both, you and your dog, in case there’s an emergency call that requires the expertise of a professional vet.

Check their programs and other offers. See if these programs are suited to your pet and examine if they are open to changes in case your furry friend requires special attention or exercises.

Pet Supplies – Strollers for Cats

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

So, do you freak out each time you have to leave your cat inside the house, say, when you go out grocery shopping? Well, you no longer need to do that, because you can fit your cat inside a pet stroller and take your pet kitty with you, wherever you go.

Before you go to a pet store to buy a pet stroller, you need to take a good look at your cat. Measure the size and weight of your cat correctly. Some strollers might look ideal, but might not be cozy enough for the cat. Remember, that the cats are extremely motion-sensitive and can get terrified when they are moved. You must have experienced this first-hand during the vet trips in the car. So, you need to make sure that the stroller is cozy and the cat feels safe inside it.

Some cats are bold and would like to see what is going on, while some others would rather be left alone. Depending on the nature of your cat, buy a stroller that is netted or completely closed. A netted cover on a cat stroller would allow the cat to look out but at the same time also feel safe. A covered stroller will shut the cat out from all external sights, and the cat can rest in peace.

Some strollers have two sections – one netted and one closed section. The cat can come out to the netted section each time it wants to look out and hide away in the closed section when it wants peace. This way, the cat will develop a sense of security inside the stroller and will willingly come with you the next time you want to take it out.

It is recommended to buy a stroller that is fully closed and one in which the cat is completely contained. This is because cats are very nervous animals, and they tend to get startled at the slightest noise. Honking on the roads might cause the cat to yelp in fear and scramble out of the stroller. In panic, the cat might not even notice where it is going, and it can get lost very easily. Imagine a cat getting lost at a mall thronging with people; will you ever be able to find your pet cat again?

Apart from the comfort, safety is also an important issue. Make sure the stroller is safe to use and the cat will get contained inside securely. You can use the strollers that allow the cats to peep out a bit from an opening. However, this is better suited for dogs.
