April Showers Cause Muddy Pet Paws






We all know the age old slogan, April Showers Bring May Flowers, however, April Showers also cause pet's paws to be muddy.

When pets paws get muddy there are several solutions to help keep your floors and carpets from inheriting the mess also. One easy solution is to keep a towel or washable puppy pad by the door. Use this as a doggie door mat, or just wipe your pet paws before they come inside. Many pet owners find other uses for their washable puppy pads in addition to training. Some pet owners have even trained their pets to wipe their paws before entering.

In addition to keeping your pet's laws clean and dry, it's important to keep the rest of your pet clean from mud splatters and spring skunk encounters. If your pet simply has rolled in the mud a bit too much, check out our selection of dog shampoo and conditioner. This dog shampoo is specially made for dogs and is safe to use on their skin and will help keep their coat looking healthy. You can give your pet a bath in the tub or outside with the hose. Then dry him off with that washable puppy pad, just one more use for the pads.

If your pet encounters a skunk, you'll need to give he or she a tomato juice bath. Most pet owners know this and keep a few bottles on hand in case of this emergency. After the tomato juice bath, you may want to give your dog a bath using regular dog shampoo to eliminate the tomato smell, and help condition their dried out skin.

With these tips, hopefully those April Showers will only bring May Flowers, and not muddy pets!

Stock Up On New Dog Toys For Spring






March 21 was the official start of spring, and with warmer than average temperatures across most of the country, we bet you and your pet are just itching to go on that first walk of the season

The cold winter months can be just as hard on your pet as they are on you, leaving dogs without a place to run and play. This spring, cure your cabin fever, along with your dog's and get outside for a walk or a game of catch.

Now is the perfect time to stock up on dog toys for the warm spring and summer months, when you and your pet will be soaking up every minute of nice weather! Your dog will love it more than you could ever imagine if he/she came home to a brand new tennis ball, or other fun dog toy to play with in the newly uncovered grass!

Spring is also the perfect time to replace worn out dog collars, leashes and tie outs that you will need this spring and summer. Your dog will always enjoy going on a neighborhood walk to show off their new collar and leash. Using a dog tie out while you perform outdoor work will allow your dog to enjoy the fresh air without running away.

In addition to the fun outdoor spring and summer activities you and your pet will enjoy, spring and summer seasons also cause pets to shed more than usual. Make sure you have an appropriate dog brush to help keep your furniture hair free and dog grooming supplies, such as flea and tick shampoo to keep your pet free of pesky outdoor mites.

Happy Spring to you and your pet!

March Is Adopt a Guinea Pig Month






When considering adopting a pet, it's important to consider the weather before bringing home a new pet. Many people wait for Spring to adopt a pet because it offers the perfect weather for outdoor training, especially for dogs

While many people will adopt a new puppy during the spring, remember that spring is the perfect time to adopt any pet especially a Guinea Pig because March is Adopt a Guinea Pig Month!

The ASPCA declared March 2002 the first Adopt a Rescued Guinea Pig Month to raise awareness about guinea pigs in the shelter system and to celebrate guinea pigs as pets. Did you know that there are 3.3 million guinea pigs in American homes, according to the 2003-2004 National Pet Survey prepared by the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association, Inc? Yes, there are; because Guinea Pigs are such great pets. Furthermore, there are many Guinea Pigs in shelters that are in need of adoption. Most people do not know that these animals are available at shelters, so rescue one from a shelter if you plan to adopt a Guinea Pig!

Guinea Pigs are great pets for homes without backyards for dogs to run free. They are also great for families with pet allergies, because Guinea Pigs live in cages, which can be secluded from allergy stricken household members. Guinea Pigs are also quiet, affectionate and do not demand constant attention like other pets.

This spring when you are considering adopting a pet, seriously consider making an adorable Guinea Pig to your family.

Using Transport Wheelchairs For Occasional Mobility Needs






Transport wheelchairs are one of the best wheelchairs on the market. These lightweight wheelchairs serve a number of purposes and are great for individuals who need occasional mobility assistance.

Many elderly people can move about their homes just fine without a wheelchair, but cannot walk long distances. A trip to the mall or a doctor appointment may cause difficulty, but can be made much easier by using a transport wheelchair.

Transport wheelchairs are much lighter than regular wheelchairs, and are much easier for caregivers to lift in and out of vehicles. They are also much lighter to push than standard wheelchairs. Using these wheelchairs can give a patient a greater sense of independence by allowing them to walk when they can and only using this chair for certain situations. Many patients feel like less of a burden when their caregiver has an easy time maneuvering the chair in and out of a car, office or home, making life a bit easier for caregivers as well.

Some patients are strong enough to maneuver the transport wheelchair by themselves, and may keep it in their car in case they feel they need it when they arrive at a particular location.

Using transport wheelchairs for occasional mobility needs creates a safe environment for patients and a less stressful situation for caregivers, allowing patients to remain as independent as possible.
