Dogs Days Movie Is A Wonderful Movie For Animal Lovers

"Until one has loved an animal a part of one's soul remains unawakened."   -- Anatole France

That is the heart and soul of this movie.  A touching, heartfelt, feel-good movie that explores the live of several dogs and the people they bring together.  Even though it was a comedy I must confess I cried through half of it.  Having run a dog rescue for 12 years, the movie was especially touching since there is a lot in the movie about rescuing homeless pets and the sweet little faces all waiting for someone to adopt them.  The main theme though is all the beautiful ways that animals touch our lives, reach into our hearts and bring out the best in us.  Yes, it was corny, but we loved it!

How Much Protein Is In Your Cat Or Dog's Diet?

Is your pet always ravenous? Begging for treats all day long? Is your pet overweight? One reason could be that the protein percentage in your pet’s diet is too low. Pets need ample amounts of real protein from real food. Many pet foods amp up the protein percentage on the label sourcing with protein from potatoes, peas and soy. Animals (especially cats) require natural protein from meat, poultry or fish. If one of these sources isn’t the very first ingredient on your pet’s food, then the diet might be lacking. Protein builds a healthy immune system, muscoloskeletal system and regulates blood sugar. Protein is an essential building block for bones, muscles, blood and hormones. Diets low in protein are often high in carbohydrates which can cause insulin to spike leaving pets feeling hungrier just a few hours after eating. What’s a pet owner to do? Invest in a higher quality food and keep dry kibble to a minimum (most dry food is high in carbs). If possible, feed your pet a raw frozen diet or include some raw frozen nuggets as a portion of your pet’s meal. Give your pet freeze dried protein treats (e.g. salmon pieces) vs biscuits or cookies made from grains. Look for grain-free foods (remember grain-free could be sourcing the protein from peas, legumes or potatoes) but more importantly look for pet food where the first ingredient is meat, poultry or fish.

Note: Pets with kidney or liver disease need a controlled protein diet and some elderly pets as well.

Home Remedies For Cats With Urinary Crystals

Is your cat getting urinary crystals? If so here are some tips:

1) Feeding the right diet can help. Crystals form when there is an imbalance in the urinary pH. Different types of crystals form depending upon whether the urine is too acidic or too alkaline. A raw frozen diet using a hypoallergenic protein source can promote a neutral pH. Grains and carbohydrates can increase the likelihood of infection in susceptible cats so be sure to use a high protein, high moisture diet that with a hypoallergenic novel protein source.

2) supplements can help promote the growth of friendly bacteria, reduce inflammation, clear sediments and protect the delicate structure of the urinary tract. Supplements such as Renelix, Akutur, NotaSAN and Power Probiotic have delivered proven results for cats over the years.

3) As with any treatment, working with your veterinarian to monitor your cat’s progress is key. After you start your cat on a healthy diet and use a few supplements, be sure to recheck your kitty’s urine to ensure your cat’s health is on track.

Hope For Sick Pets -- Wellness Is A Healing Journey

Hi, It’s me Legend.  I wanted to send you an inspirational message to tell you to that even when it seems there is no hope, sometimes miracles can happen.  Today is a day to celebrate! It’s the 8th of the month and it is 8 months since I had my last grand mal seizure.   We want to thank everypawdy who supported us and cheered us on even after it seemed there wasn’t going to be a rainbow for me. I had one seizure after another and Momma tried everything.  We kept fighting on—over and over with no stone unturned.  Momma never gave up on me.  Finally we found the answer and suddenly all of the other things we tried came together.  It wasn’t just one drug, or one supplement—-it was all the things we learned along the way on our journey that finally came together.  So now I am sending you love and hope and if you are feeling discouraged, please think of my story and keep forging on.
❤️With Love and Heartfelt Thanks, Legend
