HAWS has so many fantastic dogs up for adoption right now and one of them is Mel.  Mel is a well-trained 7 year old lab mix that was surrendered due to separation anxiety.  A person that is home most of the time would be a perfect fit for him.  He would be great company and a comforting companion for anyone and HAWS’ Behavior Department will be happy to guide your through managing his anxiety when you do need to leave the house.

Tear stains got you down?

"Earlier this year, the FDA sent a warning letter to three U.S. manufacturers of dog and cat tear stain products containing the antibiotic tylosin tartrate. The agency warned the companies that if their products remain on the market, they may be seized or an injunction filed against them."

In addition to this important finding by the FDA, Dr. Karen Becker presents extremely insightful information on what tear stains actually are, what causes them and how to treat them safely in her article, "The Hidden Message Behind Your Pet's Tear Stains."

Top 10 Halloween Hazards for your Pets

The following is an article by Dr. Karen Becker of healthypets.mercola.com.

All Hallows’ Eve is just a few days away, so it’s time for my annual reminder to pet guardians to keep their furry family members safe on the holiday. This means taking just a few common-sense precautions to insure both you and your pet wake up healthy and happy on November 1st.

10 ‘C’ Words to Watch for or Avoid on Halloween if You Have Pets

  1. Chocolate. Chocolate is toxic to both cats and dogs, and the darker the chocolate, the more toxic. It contains a caffeine-like stimulant substance that when ingested by your pet can cause vomiting, diarrhea, hyperactivity, racing pulse, and seizures. So make sure all your family members and guests, including children, understand the importance of keeping chocolate away from your dog or cat.
  2. Candy in general. Most pet owners are aware of the dangers of chocolate, but there are other types of sweets that also pose health risks for canine and feline companions, so a good rule of thumb is to keep ALL Halloween candy out of the reach of pets.
  3. Candy and other goodies containing xylitol. Xylitol is a sugar substitute that is showing up in all kinds of products, including sugar-free candy, gum, mints, and baked goods. A small amount of xylitol can cause a rapid and dangerous blood sugar drop in dogs, as well as acute liver failure. Xylitol's effect on cats is not known, but I would recommend keeping it far away from kitties as well.
  4. Candy wrappers. Halloween candy isn't the only health threat for dogs and cats. Empty candy wrappers smell like what was in them, which can entice your pet, and ingestion of foil and cellophane wrappers can cause a life-threatening bowel obstruction requiring surgery. It’s very important to stress to children in particular the need to keep all candy wrappers out of the reach of pets.
  5. Common Halloween non-candy treats. Some people like to hand out small boxes of raisins instead of candy on Halloween. Or small bags of trail mix that contain raisins. Unfortunately, raisins are toxic to dogs and cats and can potentially cause kidney failure in very small amounts. Chocolate covered raisins pose an even bigger risk.
  6. Complicated pet costumes. As adorable as they are, elaborate Halloweencostumes can pose a danger to your pet's health. Depending on the outfit, the temperature, and your pet’s coat, it's easier than you might think for him to overheat while all dressed up. Pets have also been injured when their range of motion, vision, or hearing is restricted by a costume, or when they try frantically to remove it. If you just can’t resist dressing your four-legged ghost or goblin in a costume, select something lightweight to avoid overheating, and insure it doesn’t confine or restrain his movements in any way.
  7. Candles. Candles, including the small ones inside Jack ‘o lanterns, are fire hazards. You don’t want your kitty wandering across a table or shelf decorated with lit candles, nor do you want your dog getting too friendly or feisty with a carved pumpkin with a candle inside. Make sure all these types of fire hazards are well beyond your pet's reach.
  8. Commotion of the holiday. Most holidays involve a bit of chaos and confusion – that’s half the fun, right? For us it is, but for our furry companions, not so much. Even if your pet seems excited by all the noise and activity, excitement is a form of stress, especially for dogs and cats. That’s why it’s important to know when it's time to remove your pet from the action and tuck her away in a safe, quiet spot in your home (and that time could be before the festivities even begin).
  9. Choking hazards. Those pet costumes I mentioned above often come with buttons, bows, and other small accessories that can be pulled off and choked on or swallowed. This is another reason to keep things simple if you plan to dress up your pet. There are other Halloween-related items that also pose a choking danger, including, oddly enough, those glow sticks and glow jewelry that have become so popular. Cats in particular reportedly like to chew on them, which can present not only a choking hazard, but also a burn hazard if the phenol inside leaks out.
  10. Callers at the door. If your neighborhood tends to be full of trick-or-treaters, it's a good idea to make sure your pet can't escape through an open door or window, either to investigate all the activity, or to escape it. Many dogs and most cats find a constantly ringing doorbell, strange voices yelling "Trick or Treat," and people dressed up in scary costumes to be anxiety-producing. Kitties should probably be closed off in a bedroom or other safe area of the house for the night, and dogs should either be highly responsive to verbal commands, on a leash, or also tucked away in a secure location.
 

Less than a month left...

...before our Mukwonago store moves locations!  Watch our Facebook page and (if you haven't already) sign up for our newsletter for the most current updates!

If you haven't heard the news, we will be moving no later than December 1st to 325 Bay View Road in Mukwonago, Wisconsin.  We will be in the far left building in the Chelsey Lynn Shopping Center (next to Yowzza and the Woodhouse Day Spa).  

 

When NOT to Vaccinate

There's a lot of controversy in the subject of vaccinating frequency these days.  This article on Animal Wellness magazine's website briefly talks about a handful of specific situations and conditions in which you should not vaccinate your dog, or at the very least, take extra precautions.

--->  Read the article, "When NOT to Vaccinate Animals" in full here.

Appointments are 20 minutes and include consult and adjustment.

Dot is an 11 month old female black kitty, with you guessed it,  a white dot.  You will have to stop by HAWS and meet her to see if you can find it.  She is very sweet and came from a house of many kitties so she is quite accustomed to sharing her space with other pets.

 

Hope to see you for Trick-or-Treat on Friday!

"I am a handsome fellow as you can see. However I am a bossy fellow so I will be a handful! If you would like a bun with a strong 'bun'sonality I would be the bun for you! I would not do well with children because of this. I do enjoy head and ear rubs however when I feel the need. Of course once we develop a trusting relationship I will be much more open to your requests. The best habitat setup for me would be something like this- http://www.sandiegorabbits.org/housing/x-pen-living-can-improve-your-rabbits-life ."

It's Pumpkin Season

While we are enjoying our pumpkin lattes and pumpkin pies, our furry companions can also get in on pumpkin season!

You can purchase this organic canned pumpkin at either of our stores or on our website at www.endoftheleash.com.

You can purchase this organic canned pumpkin at either of our stores or on our website at www.endoftheleash.com.

Check out this brief and informative article on Animal Wellness magazine--"The Power of the Pumpkin"--to learn several reasons why this tasty food can be beneficial to your pet! For example, did you know that ALL parts of the pumpkin have nutritional value, including the leaves and rinds (not just the seeds and flesh), which contain protein and fiber and are often used medicinally?

You're in luck if you grow your own pumpkins, but for your convenience you can grab a can next time you're in our store, or even quicker on our website! This organic, plain canned pumpkin is a perfect supplement or treat for both your dogs and cats.

REBECCA MORAVEC
Animal Communication Specialist, Reiki Master/Teacher
Rebecca has been communicating with animals for much of her lifetime.  As a child she was able to communicate with her animal companion but was unaware that this was not an ordinary gift.  As she grew older she stopped communicating with animals in an effort to “fit in” with her friends, and soon her gift was forgotten.
In her adult years, Rebecca was introduced to an animal communicator and felt it was very “natural” to talk with the animals.  This prompted her to study telepathic animal communication and she quickly rediscovered her ability to telepathically speak with the animals on a deep and meaningful level. 
Rebecca is a professional animal communicator with over fifteen years of experience.  She offers her ability to anyone who desires a deeper connection and relationship with their animal friends and all of nature.

Sweetest Day is coming (October 18th)--rather than a trip to the jewelry store, how about checking out a HAWS gem?!

Our bunny buddy, Miss Onyx, is 11 months old. This jewel is a Mini Rex rabbit who is just learning to trust her handlers, so she'll need a little patience while she gets to know her new family. Miss Onyx is spayed, and comes with an "owners manual" of sorts when she's adopted called the "House Rabbit Handbook."

Our feline friend, Mr. Onyx, is 11 years old. This gem is confident, social and loving. He has been in a home with dogs and children and does just fine! Mr. Onyx is neutered and declawed. He's quite handsome in his formal black coat!

Snacktime Just Got a Whole Lot More Fun!

 

Toppl, the newest toy in the Zogoflex® line, reinvents snacktime by turning a simple treat into a topsy turvy game. With rounded edges for maximum wiggle, dogs love this new treat toy (see the video).

Toppl wobbles around the house with a simple nudge from a hungry nose. Toppl’s tiny treat window doles out kibble while wriggling away from pups, and the center fins beg to be smeared with something creamy that tempts determined tongues.
 
At the end of the day, Toppl encourages pups to play with their food (and it’s completely okay!).

He'd probably do well with a sibling--human or feline--as long as they, too, want to play. He loves fishing pole toys and a good game of chase and catch.  Norm is spending his days in a viewing window habitat in HAWS' entryway, so you can't miss him when you visit.

Tummy Troubles?

 

Reach for the pumpkin!

In her article, "The Perfect Bowel-Soothing Food for GI Upsets and Diarrhea", Dr. Becker recommends using turkey and pumpkin for digestive issues and explains why. Below are a few highlights; click here for the full article

Along with canned pumpkin, Firm Up! Dehydrated Pumpkin Supplement is a quick and convenient way to provide the soothing power of pumpkin to your pet's diet.  Find this and other high quality pumpkin products at End of the Leash!

Along with canned pumpkin, Firm Up! Dehydrated Pumpkin Supplement is a quick and convenient way to provide the soothing power of pumpkin to your pet's diet.  Find this and other high quality pumpkin products at End of the Leash!

  • Canned 100% pumpkin provides 7 grams of soluble fiber per cup, compared to 1.2 grams of fiber in a cup of cooked white rice. Pumpkin is especially rich in soluble fiber, which forms a viscous gel that coats and soothes irritated bowels. Soluble fiber also delays gastric emptying, slowing down GI transit times and alleviating diarrhea. Diarrhea causes the loss of important electrolytes, including potassium, which can result in dehydration, cramping, fatigue, weakness and heart rate irregularities. Pumpkin is an excellent source of potassium and is also safer for diabetic patients.
  • Dr. Becker also recommends turkey instead of ground beef for bland diets for pets, because beef is higher in fat, which can aggravate existing GI problems and pancreatitis. There’s no way to adequately cook away the fat in beef, so it’s best to use a fat-free meat like turkey.

Horns or Halo?

Trippy.jpg

"Raising a good canine citizen doesn't come naturally to every dog guardian, which is one of the reasons so many unlucky pups are relinquished to animal shelters each year. Many people don't realize that molding a puppy or adopted adult dog into a balanced canine companion requires a considerable investment of time and energy.

And while everyone recognizes the difference between a well-mannered dog and one that is unpredictable and out-of-control, often dog owners develop bad habits without realizing it, and are left feeling confused and frustrated with their dog's uncooperative behavior."

Yes, exciting news!! Our Mukwonago store is MOVING!

Susie just signed a lease on a new space at 325 Bay View Road, Mukwonago, in the Chelsey Lynn Shopping Center. It's almost double the size of our current location, with lots of convenient PARKING (Yay!), and of course we will offer the same quality products and customer service you've come to expect.

We will open our doors in the new space on December 1st, just in time to have our 10th Midnight Magic in the new, larger location!

We could not have done it without all of you! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for your support, your patronage, your referrals, and for being the best customers around! We are so very grateful to have you all as part of the End of the Leash family.

Tick Check!

Does your skin crawl when you even hear the word?  Ticks have been bad in our area this season. 

Here's Dr. Becker's advice on why tick checks are so important.  Her article, "No Longer an Innocent Pest, Ticks Can Now Infect Your Pet with Multiple Diseases" talks about how blacklegged ticks can transmit more than one disease in a single bite.  

Checking your dog for ticks and having his blood checked regularly for the presence of infection is Dr. Becker's recommended approach to keeping your pet safe from potentially devastating tick-borne diseases.

The Scoop...on Poop!

No one ever seems to want to talk about dog poop, yet elimination is an important part of digestion and one you should pay attention to.  Being on "poop patrol" when your dog does his biz is imperative when monitoring your pet's health.

In their article, The Poop On Dog Diet And DigestionDogs Naturally Magazine shares how important it is to monitor your pet's "output", and how it can give you a glimpse of what is going on inside your pet.

The Raw Truth On Feeding Your Feline

The Feline Nutrition Education Society shared a great article on getting your cat transitioned over to a raw diet.  Cats are true carnivores and thrive the best on a raw diet.

Entitled, Beginner's Luck: Where Do I Start?, the article discusses the steps to getting your Boo ready for the switch and information you'll need to know to do so, as well as ideas for the actual food transition and what you can expect once he is consistently chowing down that raw food (including LESS in the litterbox, silky fur, and more energy!)!

Help Them "Flea" the Scene Holistically

 

Animal Wellness Magazine shared some great tips on helping keep fleas at bay naturally.  

Here at End of the Leash we have a variety of natural products that can be used!   Stop in to discuss your options with one of our awesome, knowledgeable staff.

Here's an excerpt from the article, "Fight Dog Fleas Holistically":

Keep your dog itch-free by taking a well-rounded holistic approach to flea and tick control.

Have you ever heard the term “integrated pest management”? It sounds rather dry and intimidating, but it’s actually a holistic strategy for dealing with the threat of insects and diseases in plants. It operates on the tenet that healthy plants are rarely targeted by pests, and takes into account the entire well-being of the plant and everything it needs for optimal growth – soil, water, light and nutrition. Any controls required are applied with minimal impact to the environment.

Of course, dogs aren’t plants. But when it comes to flea and tick control, we can draw inspiration from the integrated pest management concept. By taking a fully-rounded holistic approach that goes far beyond what is offered by conventional fl ea prevention medications, you can not only help keep pest populations down, but also ensure your dog is so healthy he won’t suffer from the few bites he might get.
