Did You Check Your Bag?

Hey neighbors!

I want to take a minute and discuss something important for anyone who owns a pet.  Do you check your bag to see what you are feeding your pet?  Do you make sure it is healthy for your pet and not full of fillers and preservatives?  Since we have several Shelties, I have become more aware of the food we are feeding them.  So much can be affected by them not getting the right nutrition and nutrients.  Not only their health can be affected, but their coat, skin condition and even their personalities.  Wellness wants to make sure you know some facts about feeding your pets so you can make a wise choice.

None of our Shelties are picky eaters, so I am sure they would eat just about anything and they often try to. LOL!  We do have one is slightly picky. Anyway,  I want to know that I am feeding our Shelties a food that is good for them and of course the very best is a natural dog food.  How about you?  Below are just a few facts for pet owners.

Pet Factoids

Pet ownership in the U.S. has more than tripled from the 1970s, when approximately 67 million households had pets, to 2012, when there were 164 million owned pets.
According to a Packaged Facts survey, 83% of pet owners consider their pet to be a member of the family.
U.S. Pet-Ownership Estimates from the American Pet Products Association for 2012

·        83.3 million - Number of owned dogs
·        47% - of households own at least one dog
·        70% - of owners have one dog
·        20% - of owners have two dogs
·        10% - of owners have three or more dogs
·        1.47 - the average number of owned dogs per household
·        20% - of owned dogs were adopted from animal shelters
·        83% - of owned dogs who are spayed or neutered
$231 – the average annual amount spent on routine vet visits        

Now more than ever before, people are more concerned with what they are feeding their pets.  Of course we know much more now too! Why is a natural dog food so much better?  See what Wellness has to say:

 Why are natural dog food diets so important anyway? “Natural products go far beyond just basic nutrition,” says Dr. Al Townshend, staff Veterinarian at Wellness® Pet Food. “Natural diets are designed to provide the very best nutrition and can have significant benefits.”
In fact, according to Dr. Townshend, “natural diets offer ingredients with some important health benefits such as probiotics, those good bacteria that are essential for a healthy immune system and digestive tract; glucosamine and chondroitin for joint health; omega-3 fatty acids or fish oils for heart and kidney health; and added digestive supplements to enhance digestibility to get the very best benefits from quality proteins and fats.”

They also have a Wellness Club.  You can find out more about this on their website.  You will receive articles, savings, contests and events.

Wellness has foods for both dogs and cats.  So no matter if you are dog person or a cat person, Wellness has something for you,  Are you interested in trying Wellness?  Check out their store locator.  Also take a minute to watch the video below.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
