    Pet in the City

    June 20th, 2019 by Owner

    Have you heard of Pet in the City yet? It’s a wonderful pet store that services the Charlotte area! I got a chance to check out this gem this week. I stopped in to pick up some dog food. Both of my senior pups have special dietary needs. I spoke with Tara Belzer, the owner, and she was able to help me pick out a great food to help meet Sasha and Chloe’s needs.
    They’ve got supplies for all your furry and feathered friends. They even have CBD products! Have you moved or changed phone numbers recently? Grab a new ID tag from their engraving machine. They have a lot of creative tags to match your style.
    If you don’t have time to stop in, order online and have it delivered directly to your door. Think Amazon, but better!


    Is it bath time for your pup? Don’t want to make a mess at your house? Then check out their self service Dog Wash. Shampoo and blow dryers are provided!


    On June 29th they are celebrating their One Year Anniversary from 12p – 4p. They’ll have raffles for a kayak, Yeti Cooler, and lots of baskets to benefit Charlotte Black Dogs. There will be food for humans and treats for the doggies. Come out and celebrate with them. Click here for additional information.

    5 Tips to Reduce Pet Odors

    4th Annual RescueMe 5K

    Run in the Rescue Me 5K With Your Dog

    By: Jennifer Ondrako, Race Director


     
    The Rescue Me 5K has created quite a buzz around the city of Charlotte. It’s a unique 5K race where participants can run with their dog. The proceeds from the event are going to The American Pit Bull Foundation’s (APBF) newest program, Operation Sidekick. They are the first organization to bridge the gap and exclusively train rescued pit bulls as service dogs to help our veterans overcome the daily struggle of PTSD and depression.
     
    Excited to join us in this race? Before you cross that start line in October, you will need to train your dog to run with you. Here are some tips on getting your dog race ready!
     

    1. Check With Your Vet. If you’ve never run with your dog before, be sure your dog is healthy for a more strenuous workout like running before you start. A quick check up appointment with your vet will notify you of any red flags before the hitting the pavement.
     
    2. Start Slow. Your dog may not be able to run a even a mile the first run out – so gradually build up distance. Find a beginner 5K training plan to follow. You may be surprised to find your dog is great running partner and can even motivate you.
     
    3. Warm Up! Just like humans need to stretch and warm up their muscles before a strenuous workout, so should your dog. So don’t go running right out of our front door, walk for a little bit first, then begin a slow jog and then start your run.
     
    4. Keep Your Dog Hydrated. Dogs cannot tell us when they are thirsty so taking water breaks every 10 minutes is recommended. With the high temperatures of summer, the last thing you want is your dog to suffer from heat exhaustion. You can easily carry water with you on a running belt.
     
    5. Stay Away From Hot Pavement. Humans have shoes to wear so we don’t feel the heat of the hot pavement. Choose to run in the early morning or later at night once the roads have cooled down so you don’t burn your dog’s paws. Banfield Pet Hospital recommends putting your hand or bare foot on the asphalt for 10 seconds – if it’s too hot for you, then its too hot for your dog.
     
    6. Have Fun! Once you’ve trained your dog to run on a leash with you, you will have the best running buddy. In the long run, regular exercise with your dog can help keep extra pounds off and prolong their life.

     
    I hope you will give these tips a try on October 13 when you and your dog come run the Rescue Me 5K.

    Pet Insurance

    Pet Insurance
    By: Kari Lynn Sherman

    Partner, Max and Luther Publications
    www.kariandcarey.com

     
    When I got Max as a puppy (almost 5 years ago), the last thing I thought about was pet insurance. I was
    busy getting the important things like a crate, bed, toys, training books and figuring out what food was best for my new puppy. In fact, I don’t think I even knew that there was such a thing as pet insurance available. It wasn’t until Max was two years old that I seriously considered pet insurance for him. At that time, Max’s best friend Luther tore his ACL and had to get surgery. I don’t think I have to tell how expensive that was! I was shocked to learn that his surgeries totaled $10,000. Fortunately for him, his owner had pet insurance which covered 80% of the cost. So I did my research regarding the costs and benefits of getting pet insurance. I have listed some of the things that I learned from my research:
     
    1. Pet Insurance typically covers out of the ordinary expenses for your dog which eliminates
    financial considerations when deciding on treatment options for unexpected injuries and
    illnesses.
     
    2. Pet Insurance works just like car insurance i.e. you pay monthly premiums and are covered for
    specific events minus a deductible.
     
    3. Pet insurance does not cover pre-existing conditions which makes it important to purchase the
    insurance when your dog is young although you can purchase insurance at any age. Make sure
    that you understand what pre-existing conditions that your dog has. Younger dogs = lower
    premiums
     
    4. Routine care is not usually covered; however some companies offer “wellness” riders that cover
    items such as annual vaccines, flea medication, nail trims and annual check-ups.
     
    5. Allows you to choose any vet – just need to submit receipts to the pet insurance company.
     
    6. Does not discriminate against breeds or age although older dogs typically have higher premiums
    and the aforementioned pre-existing conditions to consider.
     
    7. Helps to budget for annual costs related to your pets:
    o Annual care for your dog averages $350/year (vet visit, vaccines, flea meds, etc.)
    o Annual premiums for pet insurance range between $20-$50/month
     
    I ended up purchasing pet insurance for Max with a wellness rider. The wellness rider covers a large
    portion of his annual vaccines, flea medications and his annual vet check-up. About a year after I got the pet insurance, Max developed allergies which resulted in his need of daily (expensive) medication which has been fully covered. I have never regretted getting pet insurance for him and now I never have to worry about the cost if he needs an expensive treatment or an emergency arises.
    Based on my research, the following companies are ranked as the best for pet insurance based on customer surveys:
     
    1. Healthy Paws
    2. Trupanion
    3. Nationwide /VPI
    4. Pet Plan
    5. Embrace​
     
    As a final note, I learned that only 4% of pet owners actually have pet insurance on their dogs. Clearly, dog owners should do a better job educating themselves and others regarding pet insurance.​

    Myths Regarding Pet Fish

    October 6th, 2016 by Owner

     
    If you’ve ever thought about getting a pet fish please click on this article from Vet Depot to avoid making some common mistakes. One of the most surprising mistakes to me was letting your gold fish or betta live in a regular fish bowl or other small container. That environment is actually very stressful and can lead to an unhappy life and early death. As with any new pet, it is very important to do your research to make sure they will be a good fit for your family.

    Hyperthyroidism In Cats

    October 5th, 2016 by Owner

     
    I’ve cared for quite a few kitties with hyperthyroidism in my professional pet sitting career. It’s been my experience that these cats live a pretty normal life with the right medicine. If you suspect your cat has a hyperactive thyroid please visit your veterinarian for confirmation and help get your kitty regulated. Click the article below for even more info.
     

    Here are some symptoms to look for:

    • Weight loss
    • A good or even ravenous appetite
    • An increased activity level
    • Vomiting
    • Diarrhea
    • Increased thirst and urination

    The Reason Cat Pee Has A Distinct Smell

    October 4th, 2016 by Owner

     
    My husband thinks I’m crazy when I say I can tell the difference between dog and cat pee. It’s been my experience that dog urine is watered down compared to cat urine. It allows me to pinpoint the culprit in the house when I stumble upon pee. If your kitty is urinating outside of the litter pan, be sure to talk to your vet to rule out a medical conditions before deciding it’s behavioral. Click the article below find out what gives cat pee its distinct odor.

    The Cat’s Bowl Is Empty

    I came across this great article that explains why cats act like their food bowl is empty. If you have a cat, you know about this phenomenon! You filled up their food bowl, and later in the day the center of the food is eaten and your kitty is crying for more. So we shake down the walled up food, try to persuade our cat that this food is just as good, and hope they eat it. Click on the link below to find out the biological reason cats act this way and share with your other feline loving friends!
