One of the Greatest Mysteries About Cats Explained

Do you have a fussy feline when it comes to meal time? Well Dr. Karen Becker has a fascinating explanation!  Check out her article, "One of the Greatest Mysteries About Cats Explained".  She also includes some excellent tips on encouraging your fussy kitties to eat!

Story at-a-glance (courtesy of healthypets.mercola.com):

  • Cats are obligate carnivores who thrive on meat-based, not plant-based diets
  • Recent research reveals cats have taste receptors for bitter flavors, which were assumed to be of use only to herbivores as a way to detect toxins in plant matter
  • It could be that bitter taste receptors help cats detect toxins in or on prey animals. They may also help protect against internal toxins
  • It’s important that cats eat regularly, so even finicky kitties should always be encouraged to eat

What is animalEO?

Our Mission for Animals - A Message from Dr. Melissa Shelton...

I have been involved with Essential Oils for animals for many years.  And even before my introduction into the aromatherapy world, there has been a level of controversy regarding the use of essential oils with animals, especially cats.  It became my passion and mission to truly figure out if essential oils were harmful or helpful.  Through the work in my holistic veterinary clinic, I collected any data I could on toxicity reports, and also on cases that had proven beneficial results.  To me, the results could not be ignored.  Truly wonderful things could come by the proper use of high quality essential oils.

I have always felt protective of my patients.  Only wanting the best for them.  When I would recommend the use of essential oils for an animal, it always came with a level of caution.  What if the animal caregiver used a poor quality oil along with my recommendation?  What if an animal was harmed?  Over the years, I felt comfortable with just recommending one brand of essential oils, in an attempt to remedy this potential situation. But, the honest truth is, I could never monitor every essential oil released by any company.  And, there would always be essential oil singles and blends, that being created with humans in mind, were just not appropriate to use with animals, unless strict instructions and guidelines were followed.

animalEO remedies all of these issues.  Every essential oil single that goes into an animalEO product is personally evaluated by myself, to ensure that every property is as perfect as it can be.  Year to year, essential oils are harvested and distilled. Have you ever made a loaf of bread, and then made it again but it was slightly different?  This is natural variation.  However, it can mean that with essential oils, one distillation and harvest can yield a beautiful result - while the following year - the next harvest results in "a loaf of bread destined for the garbage..."  I have evolved to feeling the most reassured when people use my recommendations for animals - with the fact that I have evaluated the very essential oil they are going to use!  Once the oil has been in my hands - held, smelled, used, and approved - This just feels right!

The next major concern that animalEO addresses, is the fact that using human-intended essential oil singles and blends, have no instructions for the proper use regarding animals.  Being able to provide a product that will actually carry the proper use recommendations for cats, dogs, horses, cows, exotics, or any animal - is of huge importance.  It is true that not every animal should use every animalEO product.  Just because the products are "for animals", does not mean that the same product intended for dogs, should be used with birds.  Being able to have accurate recommendations for the animals that the product is intended for - will advance animal aromatherapy greatly - and keep animals everywhere, safer and healthier!

For more information and to register for the event please visit the HAWS website at www.hawspets.org/winter-symposium.

Mandy is a sweet, gentle 7 year old Pug/Beagle mix.  We would recommend a home for her that has children older than 6, due to her age. From what we can tell here, she would be okay in a home with a cat or dog. However, Mandy would prefer a lower energy dog that is appropriate. You will get the best of both worlds with her. She is independent, but will seek and accept attention!

Babe is a one-year-old Schnauzer/Lab mix. She is a very nice young lady!  She loves to play and be rambunctious so a home with small children is not recommended. Babe is curious and willing to learn and is in need of some teaching. She is still young and benefit from on going training. 

Tony is a 4-year-old Chinchilla. He is a very energetic chinchilla who likes to zoom around the room and wall surf. He is not fond of being held, however. He is nocturnal and likes to be left alone during the day so he can get some sleep. He becomes energized in the evening so he would need a large cage and a safe space outside of the cage to expend all that energy!

Rosie is a one-year-old Pointer Mix. She is a doll, loves to play, and will snuggle as well. She will need someone that will encourage training with her. She needs to work on her manners, but would love for someone work with her! She also has a very high prey drive so she can not be in a home with a cat. 

Silverado is approximately 10 years old. He came to HAWS as a stray so his age is our best guess. He is a wonderful and loving boy who is looking for his forever home. 

 

See you this Saturday at Midnight Magic!

Tony is a 4 year old Chinchilla. He is not part of the infamous 330 Chinchillas HAWS cared for earlier this year. In his previous home he lived with cats. He is friendly and social but like some Chinchillas he is not always easily handled. 

Paz is a 9 year old Beagle, our oldest dog currently available for adoption. He seems to be good with cats and dogs. His one bad habit seems to be that he likes his food a little too much! He cant be adopted into a home where there are kids younger than 6 because he has a potential for resource guarding. Overall he is a wonderful guy who is a little slow but loves attention. 

We hope to see you soon!

Helping Your Pet's Allergies

Ever heard of food energetics?  Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)--which has been used successfully for thousands of years on people and animals--uses food energetics to help diagnose and treat medical conditions, including allergies.  

This article (link below) gives you a primer on understanding some basics of TCM and how to determine the foods you should (or shouldn't!) be feeding your pet.  It's fascinating, and the best part is that food energetics helps you treat the problem at its source, which gives your pet the best chance for continuing to feel her best!

Ray is a 2-year-old Dachshund mix. He is very sweet and cuddly. Ray was transferred here from another shelter in Alabama. Unfortunately he has heartworm; but luckily for him it has been treated. It can take up to 6 months after treatment for the heartworms to be gone. Due to this, Ray would be fostered by his family until he would test negative for heartworm. Once he is negative, he could officially be adopted!

Gisella is an 8-month-old Beagle/Hound mix. She is a fun-loving energetic girl. Since she is young, she hasn't quite figured out the most appropriate way to greet you. Her favorite way to say hello is to jump on you, but she is working on that. She would love for someone to spend time training her and expending her energy. 

Scooter is a 9-year-old, two-paw declawed Domestic Shorthair. She is looking for a relaxed, quite home where she can spend the rest of her years. Scooter is on the shy side, but she is working hard on being the perfect cat for that perfect someone.

Chico is a 6year old Shih Tzu! He is a sweet fun loving guy. He will require a patient home that will be willing to work with his special needs, as he is blind. Don't let that fool you, he is very up beat and energetic and willing to go on adventures! 

 

Emma is a 4 year old Domestic Shorthair. She is a little shy and reserved. It may take her a little while to warm up to you, but when she does she will surely show you affection.  She enjoys having all of her feet planted on the ground or on you.  Being picked up is one of her least favorite things. Cuddling is on her terms.

Cutie is approximately 7 months old.  She is a Mini Rex. She is a very petite little girl with plush velvety fur! She is a bit shy, but sweet, and will do best in a quiet and calm home environment. Once she warms up to her new human companion and feels safe and secure, she will enjoy loving gentle pets.

Hanz and Franz are 4-month-old Gerbils. They are a fun pair of brothers who love to dig tunnels and burrow deep in thier bedding! They love to run in their wheels too! They enjoy chewing everything so they need lots of wooden toys and cardboard tubes and little boxes to destroy :) 

Hope to see you soon :)

Tender Teeth? How Do You Know?

Dr. Becker shares a great article on some signs your pet is suffering from dental issues.  At End of the Leash we have a variety of different raw bones and dental products that you can use to help keep your pet's teeth pearly and white once your vet has ensured your pet's mouth is as healthy as can be. 

Excerpted via healthypets.mercola.com:

"Most Pet Owners Completely Overlook This TLC…" by Dr. Karen Becker

Though many pet guardians have developed the excellent habit of regularly brushing their animal companion's teeth and monitoring their oral health, unfortunately, many more have not. We know this because the vast majority ofdogs and cats over the age of three have gum disease.

If your pet has a sore mouth, she can't tell you about it. In addition, it's the nature of both dogs and cats to hide pain so they don't appear vulnerable to predators. This means your pet might really be hurting from dental disease while you remain blissfully unaware there's something wrong.

Story at-a-glance:

  • The majority of dogs and cats over the age of three have periodontal disease, which means that many pet guardians aren’t paying enough attention to their animal companion’s oral health
  • Pets hide pain, including severe dental pain, which is an important reason for taking care of and monitoring your dog’s or cat’s oral health
  • Some of the signs of dental pain in pets include stinky breath, behavior changes, and bleeding
  • Plaque and tartar buildup on teeth can lead to irreversible gum disease, which can affect your pet’s overall health, including his heart health
  • Feeding a raw diet, offering appropriate raw bones, and brushing your pet’s teeth regularly are the best methods for keeping your dog’s or cat’s teeth and gums in good condition
