Dealing With Pet AllergiesWritten by A. Wilmot

This particular kind of allergy is caused by hypersensitivity of immune system to environmental substances. A Flea Allergy is single most common dog allergy but is also common cats. The normal dog or cat suffers only somewhat minor irritation in lieu of a flea bite with minimal itching. A food allergy is also somehat common in pets. Cats often become allergic to their most common protein such as tuna. Dogs can be allergic to proteins like chicken and beef. When it comes to allergies, like most things it's a matter of controlling, not curing. Once an animal's body becomes hypersensitive to certain things, it is then eternally vulnerable to those things. Regarding treatment of allergies, most common treatments are topical products like shampoos or antihistamines. There are also certain supplements that you can give to your pets to help support insides of their bodies, which to an extent determine condition of outside.

14 Tips for Crate Training Your New PuppyWritten by Peggie Arvidson-Dailey
Continued from page 1
9.Don’t ever: scare him into crate, put him in there as a punishment or otherwise encourage a negative connotation to crate. 10.Practice this several times a day during his first few weeks home. Leaving him in crate for short intervals while you leave house. He will soon realize that you come back and let him out. 11.If your dog needs something to chew, make sure you give him a toy that he cannot shred, break or otherwise harm himself with. If he is an aggressive chewer, I recommend Galileo Bone by Nylabone. 12.When you let your puppy out of crate, immediately take him outside to relieve himself. For very young puppies, this will likely be every 4 hours. (on average a puppy needs a break in as many hours as he is months old – if your puppy is 4 months, please give him a potty break every four hours) 13.When you are leaving, or putting him in crate, give him his command, “Crate,” praise him gently when he complies (but do not get effusive – you don’t want him to get all riled up!) and then leave without a commotion. 14.Upon returning, open crate and let your puppy come out at his own pace. Don’t make a big fuss, simply praise him gently, put on his collar and leash and take him outside.
Crate training is a valuable asset to any training program for new puppies and can help enhance your relationship with your canine pal. A happy and comfortable puppy will mature into a well-mannered and loving companion.
