As the proud owner of a handsome Rottweiler mixed breed I adopted nearly 4 years ago, I wanted to share these links with you.
I found the slideshows very informative, and they seamlessly follow one after another. Or you may use the links below each title.
1. The first is: How Pets Can Improve Your Health
Of course a pet can lift your mood and ease depression, but it can also lower cholesterol, help your heart and boost fitness for example.
2. This is followed by Surprising Things You Didn’t Know About Dogs & Cats
Did you know dogs can smell hypoglycemia and be trained to warn their owners its time for a snack. That cats can love too much. That dogs can learn an average of 150 words, some up to 250 words. Cats kiss with their eyes.
Secondhand smoke increases the risk of at least 2 fatal cancers in cats. Dogs with long noses may develop cancerous nasal tumors from living with a smoker and short nosed breeds are more prone to lung cancer. (If you smoke I can help you quit in one to two sessions.)
3. Risky Mistakes Pet Owners Make
Leaving your dog alone too long, which can lead to separation anxiety and destructive habits.
Scolding pets for ‘accidents’ won’t work and causes emotional harm.
Giving milk to cats or forcing them to share a litter box.
Not having a disaster plan in case of fire, flooding or a typhoon.
4. Pet Treats: Dos & Don’ts
Avocados, grapes, macadamia nuts, coffee, onions and chocolate can cause grave illness in dogs.
5. 20 Things You Can Learn From Your Pet.
6. Lastly, Skin Problems in Dogs. Much to learn about here.
