Pet Hydration Month - Current Pet Fountain from PetSafe!

Hello Neighbors!

July was Pet Hydration Month (sponsored by PetSafe), and although this is a little late, we still wanted to remind you to make sure your pets are properly hydrated in all of this heat!  (Just in the past week we had "feels like" temperatures of 110*)  Even though it has been a little bit cooler here recently it still gets pretty hot, and it's necessary to make sure all of the animals have enough water.


Today I want to share the Current Pet Fountain by PetSafe with all of you.  We received the large (in forest green), and decided to set this up near Pansy's bed so that she could have fresh, filtered water available 24/7.  There is an instruction manual for first setup, but it is very easy to get the fountain up and running and it comes a part for cleaning.  It has a submersible pump to keep the water moving, and a carbon filter to keep the water clean.  The fountain holds 120oz., so it's sure to last her all day.


Did you know that your pet should have 1oz. of water, per lb. of body weight each day in order to stay properly hydrated?  Symptoms of dehydration in your pet can include a lack of energy, vomiting, dry gums, excessive panting, etc.  Be sure to watch your pets carefully in this heat, and keep an eye out for warning signs of dehydration.


We've had this set up for Pansy for several weeks now, and it works great!  She even occasionally has visitors that also like to try out her fountain (such as Little Bit, above).  :D  She doesn't mind sharing.  What pets do you have that could use a Current Pet Fountain?  Be sure to visit the PetSafe website and choose one of the many water fountains for your furry-friends.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
