Blog / 05/22/2015

Remove Cat Urine From Carpet   There are many products available on the market today for removing cat urine from carpet. The question is, are any of them worth the money? Among the best available is one called Nature’s Miracle. This product is guaranteed to remove urine stains and odors from carpet. In my experience, it even works remarkably well on older stains. Nature’s Miracle is something called an enzymatic cleaner. It essentially breaks down the compounds in cat urine that are responsible for the smell. The importance of removing cat urine from carpet as soon as possible cannot be overstated. Aside from the offensive smell in your home, it is also a signal to your cat that this is an acceptable place to pee. The sooner you can thoroughly clean the area that your cat has been peeing, the sooner you can get on with getting your cat back to using the litterbox. A word of warning when using Nature’s Miracle to remove cat urine from carpet: When you first apply the solution to the area, the smell is going to be even worse than before you used it. This is just a product of the enzymes breaking down…

Koi Pond Maintenance
Pets & Pet Care / 05/17/2015

Koi Pond Maintenance   Having a koi pond is without a doubt one of the most rewarding aquatic experiences that you can undergo these days but there is so much more to it than just watching the fish! You will need to keep up with its maintenance and ensure your koi stay in a relatively healthy condition. The first thing we will discuss is the concept of a partial water change. It may be a bit strange, but if you were to replace all of the water at once, it could easily serve to shock your koi. Similarly, you would not want to constantly move your fish to different tanks on a regular basis as doing so would only irritate them. Rather you should simply try a partial water replacement, and doing so will serve to get rid of the nitrate. Nitrate builds up as a result of the filtration of the ammonia that it release as waste. Nitrate will not hurt your fish directly, but allowing it to build up will ultimately create murky water and even permit the growth of algae. The long term implications of this are fatal to your fish, so make sure you keep an…

Raw Dog Food Diet – Why Dog Is Vomiting & Having Diarrhea
Blog / 04/21/2015

Raw Dog Food Diet – Why Dog Is Vomiting & Having Diarrhea   Have you just switched your dog from a commercial food diet to a raw dog food diet? Have you noticed loose stools and vomiting in your dog? It could be going through a detoxification period. Detoxification happens because your dog’s body is being cleansed from its previous diet. It’s a normal part of switching. How long it lasts can vary depending on how many toxins your dog has in his system. But typically it starts within 1 to 2 days of switching to a raw food diet and lasts a few days. In some dogs, detoxification has been known to last for a few weeks, although I would advice having your dog checked by a vet if vomiting and diarrhea persists for more than a week. Signs of detoxification include earwax build up, foul odor, vomiting, loose stools, itchy skin, increased bowels and bad breath. Did you know that you can choose to have your dog detoxified even before you start him on a raw dog food diet? Some pet owners do this because of the benefits associated with early detoxification. One benefit is that your dog’s…

Thinking of Raising Turkeys?

Puppy Potty Training Using Dog Litter Boxes
Blog / 03/15/2015

Puppy Potty Training Using Dog Litter Boxes   My two dogs love going outside for exercise and play but only if the weather is nice. If there is bad weather like snowstorms or heavy rain showers, they don’t want to go out at all and I don’t blame them. The good thing is that unlike most other canines that have to go out to do their business at least two to three times per day in all sorts of weather conditions, my two dogs can stay in if the weather is rotten out there. This is because both of my dogs went through puppy potty training using dog litter boxes. Right from day one when I got them at ten weeks of age, they were both introduced to dog litter boxes. This method of puppy potty training has become more and more popular each year as pet stores are stocking specialized litter and pans made especially for canines. No More Bad Weather Dog Walks Up here in Canada, the winters can get really cold, windy, wet and just miserable. It’s certainly not something to look forward to each morning if you have to get up and take your dog outside…

5 Important Tips On Caring For Rabbits
Blog / 03/11/2015

5 Important Tips On Caring For Rabbits   Caring for rabbits is just like caring for humans; you need to exert time, effort and love for them. It’s not as simple as feeding them anything you can find, cleaning their cages and providing them just any toys. It sounds like a meticulous and tedious work but actually, it is rewarding. Watching your bunnies running around their cages bring us a feel of relaxation and enjoyment. It’s not really that difficult to take care of them; you just need devotion in order to perform the tasks well and take these tips by heart. Tip #1: Do not let live your bunnies alone. They are very sociable. They easily get depressed when they are not given attention so buying them in pairs would be a good solution. If you do not fancy them to multiply, better neuter (for males) or spay (for females) them. Some are very protective of their territory but this fact must not stop you from making them sense that they are not alone. Dividers in their lairs would give them an impression that they have companions that cannot occupy their area. Tip #2: Provide a playground for them….
