How To Keep Your Pet Healthy

Assuming that you are a pet owner and that you probably own either a cat or a dog (as that is what most pet owners do) I am not going to teach you something that you do not know but rather bring your attention to something that you might have forgotten.

* Amount of exercise: Both cats and dogs need physical activity. Movement is vital to any pet and the larger pet the more exercise is needed. That is why dogs will often require more exercise than cats.

* Way to exercise: If your cat is a stay at home cat you will need to take it out into nature. If you live in a big city you must take it for daily walks. All dogs (even the smaller ones) will need at least one daily walk and for larger breeds you need two or three walks a day of at least 30 minutes.

* Don’t spoil: Giving your pet food in excess amounts will be just as harmful for them as it is for you to overeat. The problem is that since they are pets they don’t know that what you’re giving them will actually harm them.

* Vitamins and minerals: Be sure to ask your VET what she recommends that you purchase for your pet. Some pet foods are better than others and you’ll most likely find that you can benefit from finding breed specific products.

* Love: Just like humans a pet will need love from you and from anyone else in your family. Without love a pet will lose the will to live just like a human would. Talk to your pet daily using happy words and make sure to keep a physical contact as well.

* Insure your pet: Every day thousands of pets get hurt by cars and there is nothing we can do about it. But instead of hoping that it’ll never happen to your pet be sure to get an good pet health insurance that will cover everything if bad luck strikes.

* Plan: Make sure you use a schedule for all major appointments. Be sure to note the regular VET check-ups and that your pet gets any medication or vaccines that it’ll need. Small things like these will add up in the long run.

The Pet Tuxedo Phenomenon

Many people know all about tuxedo cats, but do you know about cat tuxedos? People all over the country have been dressing their pets for years. Dogs and cats seem to be the most popular animals to dress in human like costumes.

Although many costumes have been created for dogs and cats, the tuxedo still remains the most popular. Pet tuxedos help attendees accept the dog or cat in the ceremony, when otherwise they might not.

The cat tuxedo is not seen nearly as often as its antithesis. However, you will see some cat lovers dressing up their cats and placing them near the alter during wedding ceremonies.

The major advantage of putting a cat in a tuxedo over a dog is that the cat is less likely to rip the tuxedo off right away. Once the cat is used to the tux he/she usually leaves it alone. This is great because you do not want to have to follow the cat around fixing its tuxedo all day long.

Cats have a disadvantage over dogs in the fact that they are usually less dense in size. They cannot have a big and regal tuxedo placed onto them because it simply will not fit correctly.

Placing a dog tuxedo on your dog is the most common practice you can do in terms of dressing up your pet. These animals have been used in weddings as ring bearers for quite some time now.

The dog looks great in a tuxedo because he/she can hold large tuxedos with great detail and style. This animal can even sustain a top hat if you have trained him/her to cooperate with a hat.

The great hindrance to placing a tuxedo on a dog is the dog itself. Many dogs will take the tuxedo off by biting and pulling. These animals need to be taught to keep the tuxedo on them well before the tuxedo event.

Bookmark this page and read carefully over it before embarking on a pet tuxedo adventure. This will ensure that you know what are going to be involved in.
