Don’t Let Your Pets Get Spooked

Posted by on 12:58 pm in Show Ad | 0 comments

by Kristine Nesbitt, Animal Communicator Even the most docile, well-socialized animal can get scared at Halloween. It’s a fun time for us humans but our pets can easily get frightened. Strangers coming to the door in strange costumes, whether we think they are scary or not, can be quite unnerving for pets. As you are planning your Halloween festivities, keep this in mind. It’s very important to protect your animals from things that might spook them into running away, jumping the fence, or escaping out an open door during this holiday. So what can you do to keep you pet safe and calm? *If your pet is crate trained and enjoys a crate as their safe place, you can keep your pet in a crate during trick-or-treat time or for your Halloween party. Just make sure you also have the crate in a quiet area where the pet won’t feel trapped and scared by party noise and people in costumes. *Play some soothing music for the pet in their space. This will also help mute party sounds, the doorbell, and some of the stranger sounds heard on Halloween. *Keep all of your animals indoors especially on the evenings that trick-or-treaters are out. *If your cat doesn’t like crates, simply lock them in a comfortable quiet room with their beds, toys and litter box so they aren’t tempted to escape out an open door while guests are coming and going. *If you choose to have your pet be part of the festivities keep a close eye on them for signs of stress. Remove them from the party if they get overly excited, try to hide or cower away from guests, or just don’t seem themselves. *Be sure to keep that candy bowl far out of reach of pets and make sure guests know not to feed your pet treats. One piece of chocolate or one accidentally ingested candy wrapper can give pets a gruesome tummy ache and you a very scary emergency vet visit. Animal Communication You Can Do to Help: All of our animals understand us so even though YOU may not be able to hear what your animal feels you can still let your animal know what is happening during this holiday. You simply think about telling your animal about what is going to happen. It doesn’t require any more than this intention for your animal to receive this message. For example, if you are having a party, have the intention to send a message to your animals and think about the party, who is going to be there, what people will be wearing, what kind of sounds and smells there will be and then let the animal know where you will keep them during the party. Be specific about which room you will put them in, if they will be in a crate, which toys they will have, what music you will play, how long they will be in the room or the crate, and how often you will come to check on...

Safety and Traveling this Summer with your Pet

Posted by on 4:25 pm in Show Ad | 0 comments

Many individuals all across the country will be traveling this summer. For those planning on taking their four legged friends on these trips, it is important to know some basic safety standards about summer travel with your pets. Many pet owners dread the idea of having to fly with their furry companions. However, there are instances where traveling by plane is necessary. However, there are a few important safety precautions to take.  Before flying with your pet will need to get a vet-approved health certificate and find a carrier your pet is comfortable in. Flights will need to be booked far in advance as a limited number of animals are allowed on each flight, and owners will need to arrive an extra hour early for their flight. If you have a small pet, usually 20 lbs or less, then you can often bring them in-cabin for most flights. When doing this, you will need to have an approved airline carrier that is small enough to fit under the seat in front of you. Those with larger dogs will need to board their animal underneath the plane with luggage. When doing this, one of the most important things to do is to buy the right airline approved carrier with approved bedding inside. You will also need to have a water dispenser in the carrier as well. Many pet owners will decide to take their pets with them when they make long car trips, as it is more affordable and easier than flying. While driving may have a higher convenience factor, it is still important to keep a few safety precautions in mind. Your furry friend will need frequent breaks for fresh air and water. Many pet owners do not realize how dehydrated their animal can get when sitting in a car for an extended period. If you are planning on leaving your animal inside the car while you take breaks, limit the time that you leave them alone. Even with the windows cracked, the temperature of a car sitting out in the heat can sky rocket tremendously in just a few minutes! When leaving them in a car, make sure your pets have enough water with them. You can buy small inflatable water bowls that are great for travel and fill with water whenever you need. To make sure your companion is always well taken care of and prepared for travel, it is important to have the right travel pieces, such as traveling water bowls, dispensers airline approved carriers, and car seats. Fortunately, most of those items can all be found on-line at...
