Pet First Aid Kit

My handy pet first aid kit is always traveling with me and the critters, especially with unpredictable winter weather.  You never know when things might come in handy or necessary.  There are many first-aid kits you can purchase that are directed towards pets but if you’re like me I like to be frugal and make my own.  Here’s a few ideas and pointers for getting your kit together.

Pet First Aid Items

  • Gauze (pads and rolls), cotton swabs, and splints (wide Popsicle sticks work well)
  • Scissors & Tweezers
  • Hydrogen peroxide & rubbing alcohol
  • Ice Pack
  • Disposable gloves
  • Rectal thermometer, petroleum jelly, and rubbing alcohol (for taking temperatures, lubricating the thermometer, and cleaning after)
  • Sterile saline solution, I really like the spray kind, nice for cleaning cuts
  • Foil emergency blanket
  • Flashlight (& batteries!!)
  • Syringe – These come in handy for squirting water in mouths, cleaning out wounds etc.
  • Towels

Specialized supplies to also include…

  • Styptic powder (corn starch can be used in a pinch)
  • Nail Clippers
  • Emergency Numbers & Hotlines
  • Muzzle
  • Medical & Shot Records; I have a binder of information

If Applicable:

  • Prescription medications (needs to also be listed in Medical Records)
  • Glucose/Insulin if your pet is diabetic

A lot of the items could be similar in a human first aid kit so crossover is expected.

If you’d like to just purchase one Amazon has plenty of options.

Busting the Myth of Overpopulation… with Simple Math!

Pet overpopulation is a hot topic, no matter what side you’re on. Most of us have already been shamed because of where we chose to purchase our companions from.  I feel like I’m shamed daily for being a breeder even though I try to do everything right (showing, health testing, contracts etc).  We’ve all been […] The post Busting the Myth of Overpopulation… with Simple Math! appeared first on Blogging...

Pet overpopulation is a hot topic, no matter what side you’re on. Most of us have already been shamed because of where we chose to purchase our companions from.  I feel like I’m shamed daily for being a breeder even though I try to do everything right (showing, health testing, contracts etc).  We’ve all been bombarded with “Overpopulation” & “Adopt, Don’t Shop”, overpopulation is on media at least once a day, it tends to be shoved down my throat on Facebook. I am told that I shouldn’t be breeding while shelter pets die, or “you’re just adding to overpopulation and your puppies are killing shelter dogs”. Overpopulation is a myth, let me show you how!

What mandatory Spay-Neuter looks like

The northern states are actually hurting for companion animals because their mandatory spay/neuter laws have rendered dogs and cats scarce in their area, pets from the south are shipped up north to fill the demand.  Our local shelter has drastically reduced numbers of euthanasia because the northern states take them.  Now, this may be seen as a good thing but it’s foreshadowing a true danger we could face within our entire country if mandatory spay/neuter laws were the norm.  Going from purposed “overpopulation” to no population, in 20years. Not to mention legislation legislates the small, hobby breeders like me out of existence.

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals offers the following statistics:

  • Approximately 7.6 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year.
  • Each year, approximately 2.7 million animals are euthanized*.

*I’d like to know the stats on un-adoptable pets that were euthanized, such as those with debilitating health issues, unfixable behavioral issues or euthanized due to breed ban.  We can assume that number is actually a bit smaller than listed due to the above.

Overpopulation Math

There are over 325.7 million people in the United states as of 2017 (126.22 million households), 74 million are children (census here), 46.2 million are considered senior (according to 2014 census).  So let’s say we have a pool of 205.5 MILLION people to adopt animals, give or take.  Let’s go a little further, how many of those 205.5 million are allergic?  I’m reading roughly 15% of the population is allergic to pets, 30% being asthma related.  The math I did took out 30% of the population to leave 137.06 million homes to pull from for adoptive homes.

Some of those homes will choose to buy their pets from breeders, this is ok.  So… let’s say that a grand portion decide to buy from a breeder or no pet at all for whatever reason, to put a number to it, let’s just say 75% of the population, or 102.8 million people get no pet or buy from breeder.  That leaves 34.27 MILLION people to adopt those 7.6 million homeless shelter pets.  Seems like the math is off here?  That would leave 26.67 MILLION people without a pet because all those pets were adopted.

Seems to me there are plenty of homes available so why are people still being shamed for buying a dog from a breeder?

Myth Math Strikes Again

As of March 2017, a total of 89.7 million dogs was estimated to live in U.S. households as pets. In 2017, some 68 percent of all households in the United States owned pets, (or about 85 million families) up from 56 percent in 1988.

So 85 million homes have pets, again seems like a large pool of people that could/would be looking to add another pet from those 7.6 million in shelters and leaving plenty still looking for companions.

There seems to be a big hole in the “over population” propaganda and looking more like a myth to me when you look at factual numbers and not what the media tells you the numbers are.

Overpopulation, yet Rescues breed?

Rescues scream that breeders are the reason for so many pets in shelters when in reality it’s irresponsible owners that are the reason. But I’m getting ahead of myself.

I see, daily, rescues take in pregnant animals just to whelp the pups. Being puppies, they’ll fetch a far higher adoption price. My opinion, and practice when I did rescue, was to spay a dog before she whelped. This way you have only 1 more dog in the world and not 10. This was back when I thought overpopulation was a thing of course.

People want to argue that this is cruel, and will rank up there with the abortion debate but think about it. Easier to find a home for 1 than 10. If we’re so overpopulated with pets shouldn’t we do what we can to fix the situation. Not to mention the amount of money that can quickly add up. Whelping a litter, caring for a litter etc is not cheap, just sounds counterproductive to me.

Overpopulation, yet Rescue import?

I wrote an article about the meat market dogs that you may want to read. Rescues are importing supposed dogs rescued from meat markets in Asia. First off, a lot of those seen are purebred, low yield dogs such as French Bulldogs, Yorkies etc. I’m seeing pretty Golden Retrievers being labelled as saved from meat farm. Meat farm dogs are non-descript dogs, they can’t be labeled one breed or another because the farmers don’t care as long as they reproduce to make product.

The media and rescues are pulling the wool over your eyes, don’t fall for it!

Truth About Meat-Farmed ‘Rescues’

Ready for another topic to piss off the masses?

I recently saw where Victoria Stilwell, a public figure dog trainer, helped to rescue dogs from a dog meat farm in Korea. These dogs were of course living in poor conditions since dogs aren’t on the same level of importance as they are over here, in the states.

She mentions in the video, that is circling, that the dogs are going to the UK and Canada. If you’ve been keeping up with canine news, many imported dogs from situations such as this are bringing in some nasty diseases that our American dogs aren’t vaccinated against or there arent vaccinations available for them.

I’m also seeing videos of purebred, well groomed Golden Retrievers, Daschunds Yorkies, etc being labeled as rescued meat dogs. This is a ploy to pull heart strings. No meat farm is going to farm a small, meatless dog or focus on breeding purebreds. Don’t get pulled into these lies.

Who knows where these dogs are actually coming from? What they’re exposing out pets to? Health certificates are falsified, quarantine isn’t being properly practiced. Heck, parvo & rabies are being sent out in masses because rescues don’t have to follow regulations like breeders are forced to. People want to vilify breeders while rescues are running rampant with little to no regulation.

They do this because it brings in the big bucks. Put your money where it can make a proper difference and don’t support this practice.

Boredom Busters

These cold winter months can be painful for all of us. We can't get outside to play and our dogs are saying a big old "nope" at the front door. To keep away those winter-time blues, keep your pups' brains active with some mental activities in limited space. The post Boredom Busters appeared first on Blogging...

These cold winter months can be painful for all of us. We can’t get outside to play and our dogs are saying a big old “nope” at the front door. To keep away those winter-time blues, keep your pups’ brains active with some mental activities in limited space.

Snuffle Mats

Snuffle mats are all the rage in the dog world right now. These simple mats are made of cloth with all sorts of little pockets and grooves to hide food in. This is a great option to keep a pup busy during dinner time or to play hide-and-treat with their favorite goodies.

LickiMats

LickiMats are another great option! Licking is a natural behavior for dogs, licking releases pleasurable endorphins and can sometimes be done to excess so ideally we would want to redirect the behavior to a more appropriate outlet. Rather than the dog liking it’s paws raw or other parts out of boredom why not start them with a LickiMat. Smear their favorite food (dog friendly peanutbutter, canned food, yogurt etc) on the mat and let them go to town working it out from cracks and crevices.

Puzzle/Treat Balls

Puzzle/Treat balls are another option for the bored canine. Fill the balls with their dinner ration, maybe mix in a few goodies as a surprise and watch them go to town, rolling it around trying to get it to drop its stash. These are better with the harder foods, if you want to use softer foods or mixture of, check out Kongs.

Teaser Wand

The teaser wand gives you a way to give your dog a little more high paced activity. This pole gives you the ability to drag so they may chase, or if they grab can turn into a game of tug. These are really great for terriers and their prey drive for vermin bot great for any breed. These are more ideal if you have a little extra room in the house or on a nicer brisk day for a quick romp in the yard. I’ll be getting me one of these!

Chews

Nothing beats a good-ol’ chew. Chewing is another behavior dogs find pleasurable. We can find it destructible so best to avert to appropriate chewable items such as Himalayan chews, Bully Sticks, Kongs etc.
Of course, always supervise your pooch as they enjoy their chews (& other items)
