Having a high-energy dog can detract from the time spent with your pet, but more often than not, our companions’ excess energy is due a lack of stimulation. While some dogs are happy lazing on the couch all day, many breeds were designed as working animals. It’s no wonder, then, that so many pet owners experience problems with high-energy dogs. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to ensure Fido gets the mental, physical and social stimulation he needs to stay cool and collected. Here are a few tips for handling your high-energy pet:   1. Engage in play: This may seem like a no-brainer, but many owners don’t consider their dogs’ exercise requirements compared to the amount of physical activity their pets get day to day. If your dog can’t sit still, it’s likely he needs to spend more time burning energy running and playing. Engage in games like fetch or tug-of-war to help keep your dog calm back at home while actively bonding with your pet over some of his favorite activities.   2. Exercise his brain: Many dogs were bred as working animals, so giving your pet a task to complete not only exercises his body and brain, but also boosts his sense of confidence. Nosework teaches dogs to sniff out a particular smell, giving them a task to complete that keeps them both mentally and physically active, but even practicing simple tricks can engage your pet and lead to a calmer companion. For more intense mind-body workouts, try competitive sports such as dock diving, herding, field trials and agility training. All of these will help strengthen your bond with your pet, too.   3. Teach good manners: Energetic dogs tend to jump up on their owners and bark excessively, detracting from the time spent with your pet. Teaching your dog good manners is another form of training that will engage his mind while teaching him impulse control. Next time you put on his leash for a walk, fill the food bowl, or throw his favorite toy, ask your dog to sit first. Once he’s sitting calmly, reward him immediately with the desired object. Soon, your pet will learn that good manners and calm behavior are the best ways to get what he wants.   4. Go for a walk: One of the simplest ways to wear out an energetic pet is to ensure he’s getting plenty of daily exercise. Breeds that are high-energy may try to chase other animals, so keep Fido on a leash and, when possible, walk in quiet areas. Dogs make for fast runners, so always keep your companion on a leash to prevent accidents or losing your pet. With a few lifestyle modifications, you can help ensure your spirited companion is getting the stimulation he needs to be happy, healthy and calm. If you’ve tried these techniques or if your dog undergoes a rapid change in behavior, however, his excessive energy may be due to an underlying medical condition and you should seek your veterinarian’s advice.

The Seresto flea and tick collar provides up to eight months of flea and tick prevention for pets, making it one of the most convenient treatments. With the huge range of flea and tick treatments on the market, many pet owners turn to the most convenient and cost-effective medications to fight an infestation. That’s why the Seresto collar has become thousands of consumers’ go-to solution for pest prevention. This revolutionary flea and tick treatment provides up to eight months of protection from biting pests, protecting dogs and cats from disease and giving owners peace of mind. Manufactured by time-honored veterinary science company Bayer, Seresto contains two active ingredients that fight fleas and ticks. An insecticide proven to be highly toxic to biting insects, Imidacloprid fights fleas at both their larval and adult stages. It is found in hundreds of other pet, garden and home products and works by binding to receptors that block pathways in the nervous system of fleas and ticks. Because it is much more effective on insects’ nerve cells than mammals’, Imidacloprid has been proven to be safe for use on dogs and cats. Seresto's other active ingredient, Flumethrin, also attacks the nervous system of parasites, fighting fleas in their nymph, larval and adult stages. This pesticide is found in low doses in the collar and does not pose a risk to pets or to the people around them. In fact, field trials found only a small percentage of dogs and cats faced minor side effects, such as irritation, hair loss, scratching and hair discoloration around the area of the collar. Imidacloprid and Flumethrin work together to fight fleas and ticks for up to eight months, thanks to Seresto’s revolutionary design. The active ingredients are contained in a polymer matrix that slowly releases medication from the center of the collar to its surface. Seresto begins work almost immediately on contact with an animal’s fur and skin, where it forms a thin layer of protection against fleas and ticks. This odorless and non-greasy shield prevents parasites from attaching to your pet, where they can cause allergic reactions and transmit disease. And, because Seresto’s sustained release ensures a steady, low dose of medication, your pet will receive safe protection for up to eight months from each collar. Seresto is water resistant and provides effective treatment for pets that spend a great deal of time in the water and receive regular baths. The collar has been deemed safe for use on dogs seven weeks or older, cats 10 weeks or older, and comes in several doses for dogs of varying sizes. Seresto has even been found safe for pets who chew on their collars, so you can rest assured that your companion is getting the best and longest-lasting protection from fleas and ticks.

O que você precisa saber sobre demência senil felina

We all know some people experience mental decline with age, but many pet owners are surprised to learn that cats can also be affected by feline senile dementia.​ Just like humans, cats experience changes to their physical and mental health as they age. Among these are feline senile dementia, which affects brain function in some senior cats. Recognizing the signs of feline senile dementia in your pet is important, as knowing the symptoms can help you make lifestyle changes that slow the progress of the disease and increase your pet’s quality of life. Much like their human counterparts, our cats can experience dementia as they age. Also known as cognitive dysfunction system, or CDS, this impairment to the mental processes can manifest itself in many ways, from affecting a cat’s ability to learn and remember to altering his awareness of his surroundings. In some cases, cats experiencing CDS become anxious or afraid, leading to the seemingly gratuitous yowling observed in some older cats. Often, pet owners are perplexed when symptoms of CDS first appear, but there are a few signs that can clue you in when your cat is experiencing the onset of feline senile dementia. Look for changes in his grooming habits and especially an unkempt coat, shifts in his sleeping patterns or overall lethargy, increased irritability or anxiety, fluctuations in Kitty’s activity levels, general disorientation or confusion, and increased instances of incessant yowling. It’s important to note that these can all be symptoms of a host of other feline health concerns, so it’s important to take your cat to the veterinarian to rule out arthritis, hearing problems and other causes behind your cat’s behavioral changes if he’s exhibiting symptoms of CDS. Once your vet has ruled out other issues, you can begin taking special care of your pet knowing he’s experiencing the onset feline senile dementia. While there is no cure for CDS, you can help your pet maintain his quality of life with a few simple changes. Keep up his brain and motor function by ensuring Kitty gets plenty of physical and mental exercise each day. Playing with your cat each day has been shown to slow the onset of symptoms, so invest in a fishing pole or other interactive toy for your pet. As a general rule, cats do not like change, and this applies doubly to pets experiencing feline senile dementia. Try to move your cat’s food and water bowls, litter box, and even your furniture as little as possible to reduce stress on your pet. Likewise, it helps to feed Kitty at the same time each day. If your pet ventures outdoors, try to limit his time outside to reduce the chances he’ll get lost, too. These small changes should serve you and your cat well into his senior years. However, pets experience severe cases of feline senile dementia may need extra help. If your pet is having trouble finding his water dish or litter box, consider adding more around the house. Take your cat to the vet for checkups more often – about twice a year – to ensure no other health problems. While it can be difficult to care for an aging pet, making a few simple modifications to your cat’s daily routine can help combat the impacts of CDS, ensuring he stays happy and healthy well into old age.

Bravecto é seguro para cães?

Bravecto is the revolutionary tablet that packs three months of flea and tick protection into a chewable treat.  When it comes to our four-legged friends, we want to give them the best flea and tick protection possible. For many pet owners, that means giving Fido a regular dose of Bravecto. The first flea and tick treatment of its kind, Bravecto packs up to three months of pest protection into one tasty tablet. The powerful formula starts working almost immediately to kill adult and juvenile fleas, curing infestations fast and fighting future outbreaks. With such a powerful impact with each tablet, many pet owners wonder: Is Bravecto truly safe for dogs? Bravecto’s fast-acting and long-lasting efficacy is thanks to its active ingredient Fluralaner, an FDA-approved insecticide, and aracicide. After ingestion by your pet, Fluralaner enters the fluids under its skin, where it starts to work almost immediately to kill pests as they bite. This is thanks to its ability to attack the nervous systems of invertebrates such as fleas and ticks. Because Fluralaner is more effective on invertebrates than mammals, field tests and clinical use have found Bravecto to be safe for dogs. Fluralaner’s effectiveness comes from disrupting certain pathways in invertebrates’ nervous systems, creating waves of nerve transmissions that lead to seizure activity that is fatal to fleas and ticks. This has caused some concern among pet owners that Bravecto can also affect their canines’ nervous systems. However, field trials revealed the most common side effects to be vomiting, lethargy, and diarrhea—all symptoms related to the gastrointestinal system, not Fido’s nervous system. When administered properly, Bravecto provides year-round protection from fleas and ticks with just four tablets, protecting your pet from diseases such as Lyme and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and allergic reactions that can cause infection. As with any flea and tick treatment, Bravecto should be given only as instructed on the package for your specific pet. Bravecto chews are available in five different strengths for dogs of every size, including puppies over six months and dogs weighing more than 4.4 pounds. Bravecto can be used in breeding, pregnant and nursing pets. The most common adverse reactions seen during clinical trials were mild and transient gastrointestinal effects, including diarrhea, vomiting, loss of appetite and drooling. Bravecto was found to kill more than 90 percent of fleas and ticks and to be an effective treatment for allergies caused by fleas.
