ARE YOU FRIEND OR FOE TO YOUR DOG?


Proper care of your pets 101 for vacation time.

Are you leaving for a weekend getaway?

Who will be taking care of your 4 legged family members?

This is a tough one unless you have a good friend or you already have a sitter. I always say “Plan this one out good”.   If your dogs are comfortable with their sitter, you will be at ease. It is very stressful for all involved, especially our pets. They don’t understand what is going on, unless you travel often.

Before you leave

Show the sitter where the pet food and treats are, and where the pets sleep.

Make sure you write a list of basic commands you use with your pet? Giving the sitter the right words to use is important for communication with your pets.

Give them a list with pet rules: Are they allowed on the furniture? When do pets get treats, and when should they be reprimanded?

Let the sitter know your pets habits. Like, do they hang inside the house or out or both. Or if your dog barks often, or whether barking is for “stranger danger” and what to do if the dog continues to bark.

Let your sitter know if any of your pets are aggressive and for what reason. (toys, food, treats or the mail delivery person)

Lay out on the counter any cleaning supplies they made need in case a pet has an accident in the house. You never know.

List: what time your pets need to be walked or are they “free rangers” out in the yard. Most important do you need to close the doggie door and limit their access if this is so.

List: Feeding times and how much food to give them.

If there is more than one pet to be fed, can they all eat together in a group or do they need to be separated. Most important do you need to do separation prior to mixing their food?

Make sure to leave emergency contact information for the pets.

  • What is the name and number of the veterinarian?
  • Is there an emergency animal clinic nearby?
  • What should they do in case of an emergency.
  • Also leave a number of close friend or relative in the area.

Just make sure that your pet adores who ever may watch and care for your pets.

DIATOMACEOUS EARTH FOR YOUR PETS


DIATOMACEOUS EARTH FOR YOUR PETS

de-2PETS: Our best friends come in all shapes and sizes. Protect them from fleas and other crawling insects with diatomaceous earth. Thoroughly treat floor and bedding in and around pets’ sleeping quarters. Treat surrounding cracks and crevices, baseboards, carpeting and wherever fleas and other crawling insects are suspected.

CRAWLING INSECT CONTROL diatomaceous earth kills by physical action, not chemical. The tiny diatoms scratch off the insect’s waxy coating, and they dehydrate and die.

“Our work is based on natural, preventive care for animals, so of course we are always on the lookout for good, quality NATURAL products to help our clients and our listening audience that won’t break the bank.” We have long been proponents of diatomaceous earth as a natural pest control for all animals.

Regular Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth for Pet and Animal Consumption:
The Following is Recommended Food daily doses for Dogs and Cats. The diatomaceous earth seems to create an environment in the digestive system that parasites cannot live in. Also reported are great results with sore and painful hips and joints, and even a fuller, healthier shiny coat when fed as a regular daily supplement.

Other suggestions for food grade diatomaceous earth for pets:
Cat Litter/Kitty Litter: Liberally add Diatomaceous Earth to litter box to effectively control dampness and odors.

Animal Suggested Rate
Large Cats 1 teaspoon
Kittens 1/4 teaspoon
Dogs 100 lbs + 1-2 tablespoons
Dogs 50-100 lbs 1 tablespoon
Mini dogs 1/2 teaspoon

In clinical observations of feeding dogs over 35 lbs. 1 tablespoon/day, and dogs under 35 lbs. 1 teaspoon/day, of diatomaceous earth, within seven days all ova disappeared from stools. Diatomaceous Earth controlled Ascarids (Toxocana), Hookworms (Anclyostoma caninum), and Whipworms (Trichuris vulipis).
As pets get older, they often get sore hips and painful joints. Diatomaceous Earth in your pet’s daily diet will reduce arthritic inflammation.

Other suggestions for food grade diatomaceous earth for pets:

Cat Litter/Kitty Litter: Liberally add Diatomaceous Earth to litter box to effectively control dampness and odors.

DIATOMACEOUS EARTH FOR LIVESTOCK:

Goats, chickens, horses, cows, pigs, sheep, rabbits and others will benefit from the use of Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth. As well as being beneficial to animal health our Diatomaceous Earth also acts as an anti-caking additive to help the feed ingredients from sticking together.

More LIVESTOCK BENEFITS that have been observed:

  •     Stimulates basic metabolism
  •     Converts feed better
  •     Reduces the desire to lick soil
  •     Scouring or diarrhea: when fed it seems to act as a material that drives both virus and bacteria out of the body and solidifies the stool
  •      Reduces odor and moisture in barns and stalls
  •     Better coat and hoof condition
  •     Reduces annual vet bills–decreased mortality
  •     Dairy cattle: Increased milk production
  •     Better egg production, stronger eggs, and reduces overall animal stress
  •    Suggested LIVESTOCK FEEDING and Application Rates:
  •    % of total weight of dry ration 5% in grain or 1 oz. per day
  •    Animal   Suggested Rate
  •    Beef Cattle
  •   Dairy Cattle         1% of total weight of dry ration or 1 oz. per day
  •   Calves   4 grams in morning milk per calf or 2 oz. per day in feed
  •   Chickens              5% in feed, use at full strength in dusting boxes
  •   Hogs      2% of total feed ration, dust or spray on bedding and animals
  •   Horses   5 oz. (1 cup) in daily feed ration
  •   Sheep    1% in ground grains 1 part Diatomaceous Earth to 2 parts T-M salt
  •   Goats    1% in grain, 1/2 oz per day, up to 50% in T-M salt

FOR LARGE ANIMALS, Diatomaceous Earth may be offered as “FREE CHOICE” as long as the dispenser is well protected from the wind. Your livestock will also gain benefits from the many trace MINERALS naturally provided by Freshwater Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth, and DE helps reduce animal excrement odors that draw flies.

Important Notice: Feed ONLY Organic Freshwater Food Grade DE To animals. Any food grade diatomaceous earth uses other than those approved by the EPA, FDA, or USDA are strictly reports of what hundreds of users as well as Holistic Veterinarians have recommended.
