Is the Asphalt Too Hot-Hot-Hot for a Walk?

 

It's summer. Buddy needs exercise and it's hot out.  No problem--take some water for both of us and slip on a tank top, shorts and running shoes.  Something we may forget to consider, though, is what about Buddy's feet? It's easy for us to forget how HOT the pavement gets, even on a temperate, sunny day.  

This short and informative article by poochandclaws.com gives some easy tips and tricks on how to know if the pavement is too hot for Buddy's tootsies!  Stay cool!

Cool treats for HOT days!

 

It's super easy to whip up a few stuffed frozen treats for Fido during the hot dog days of summer! There are tons of ideas out there, and here are a few we love:

First, you need something to stuff! A Kong or a hollowed-out center bone works great.

Then stuff it with one or more of the following:

  • canned pumpkin
  • raw or canned dog food
  • unsweetened applesauce
  • plain yogurt
  • mashed banana mixed with a touch of peanut butter
  • or your pet's favorite mushy treat!

 

For an even easier treat, try a frozen OC Raw bone or some Bear and the Rat Ice Cream--both available at either of our End of the Leash locations  :)

Does Your Pet Have Dry, Itchy Skin?

At one time or another, our sweet animal friends may experience a bout of dry, flaky skin--or worse, have chronically itchy skin.  Dr. Karen Becker of healthypets.mercola.com wrote an informative article listing some of the main reasons this might be happening to your pet and some tips on how to resolve the issue.

The four most like reasons for dry skin in your pet are:

  1. Lack of grooming
  2. Too few or too many baths
  3. A nutritional deficiency
  4. An underlying medical condition

Read her article in full for all the details: "4 Causes of Miserably Itchy Skin – Does Your Pet Show Signs of Any of Them?"

One of the remedies Dr. Becker talks about is COCONUT OIL.  

Here at EOTL, we love our coconut oil!  We sell a high-quality, organic, raw & cold-pressed coconut oil from Wilderness Family Naturals.  Check out our website for details on this product!

Wilderness Family Naturals talks about the awesome uses of coconut oil in depth on their blog, and we just love this article, "5 Benefits of Coconut Oil for Dogs".   Keep reading below for the whole article!

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

One of the beautiful things about coconut oil is its versatility.

From humans to households, there’s always a use for coconut oil!

In what other ways can we use this healthy fat? How about our furry friends? Yes!

Dogs subsist largely on a carnivorous diet, yet many also love fruits, vegetables, and other delectable treats.  Especially labradors. Anyone who has ever known a labrador knows they have hearts of gold and stomachs of steel.  So when we tested coconut oil on our beloved lab, it was easy to see he had found a new favorite treat.

Generally speaking though, I’ve yet to meet a dog that doesn’t love to lick hands clean after a slathering of coconut oil!

What Are The Benefits Of Coconut Oil For Dogs?

As far as your beloved pooch goes, coconut oil may help maintain clean teeth, shiny fur, and overall good health. It’s not a magic bullet, but it certainly can add to their overall well-being.

Coconut oil is safe to use both orally and topically and is an easy way to help build your dog’s immune system.

#1 — Lauric Acid

Coconut oil is the richest whole food source of lauric acid — a medium-chain triglyceride known for its therapeutic benefits.

Many of coconut oil’s health benefits can be attributed to its high content of lauric acid, which is known for possessing antibacterial, antiviral, and antimicrobial qualities.

#2 — Cleaner Teeth

Coconut oil has amazing antibacterial qualities which make it a great addition to your dog’s teeth cleaning regime.

After all, no one likes smelly dog breath!

If you’re not feeding your dog raw bones or specially made dog chews to help keep their teeth clean, it’s not uncommon for harmful bacteria to build up around their teeth and gums which contributes to smelly breath and oral health problems.

This is where coconut oil can help significantly. Take an old toothbrush and simply brush their teeth with a little bit of coconut oil. Be sure to keep your dog’s toothbrush separate from the people toothbrushes!

#3 — Improved Heart Health

Supplementing your dog’s diet with a teaspoon of coconut oil can help maintain healthy cholesterol levels.

The saturated fat found in coconut oil has been said to help lower the risk of heart disease and raise overall heart health (source).

Simply add coconut oil to your dog’s food! Most dogs, however, will happily lick coconut oil straight off the spoon!

Start your fur baby off with just a lick and slowly increase the dosage to one teaspoon after 3 or 4 weeks. As with most things, too much too soon can upset your dog’s digestive system, and this slow increase gives their body time to adjust.

#4 — A Shiny Coat

During your dog’s next bath, mix 1 teaspoon of coconut oil in to the dog shampoo.

The coconut oil will leave your dog’s coat smooth and shiny. Who doesn’t love to bury themselves in a warm embrace when your dog has a nice clean coat? The added scent of coconut oil is a bonus!

#5 — Moisturizing Dry Skin

Coconut oil has become a popular skin and hair moisturizing treatment for humans, and your pooch can benefit just the same.

It’s simple, cost-effective, and does the job. If your dog is experiencing patches of dry skin, rub some coconut oil into the affected area. Do be careful not to use it in an area where they can easily lick it off — otherwise it may result in further irritation of the area.

All of Wilderness Family Naturals’ coconut oils can be used safely on your dog!

"Cats are obligate carnivores, they must eat meat. Their digestive systems are adapted specifically for a meat based diet. A cat's digestive tract is short and acidic, and processes a species-appropriate raw diet highly efficiently in about 12 hours. This gives very little time for bacteria to proliferate, so cats are naturally resistant to food poisoning.

Cats have no requirement for carbohydrates and limited ability to digest them. For cats, a raw meat diet is more digestible than a diet of plant based foods. Because they evolved eating a diet with almost no carbohydrates, they have only one enzyme system capable of handling them. This is quite different from humans and dogs who have multiple enzyme systems that digest carbohydrates."

    Party Animal Customers--PLEASE READ

    cocolicious.jpg

    Due to their recent recall on two varieties in their line, in an abundance of caution, we have pulled all Party Animal products from our shelves.

    On April 17, 2017, Party Animal recalled a precautionary recall after they were informed that two of their flavors tested positive with the presence of phenobarbital. They are still undergoing testing, however this is the second recall of a food manufactured in the Evanger’s cannery and we prefer to err on the side of caution. We do not have any of the affected lot numbers in stock, but are still choosing to remove the line from our stores.

    At this time, we are not going to carry any foods manufactured at the Evanger’s plant. If we don’t feel confident about feeding it to our pets, we won’t sell it to yours.

    Please see a staff member if you need help finding an alternative.

    Fromm Family Foods is a fifth-generation family-owned and operated artisan pet food company based in Wisconsin. Since 1904, our family has maintained a tradition of quiet innovation dedicated to the health and nutrition of animals. In the 1930s, we developed the first canine distemper vaccine. By 1949, we had introduced the concept of premium pet food to the world by pioneering the process of cooking meat and grain together to create the dry kibble food that is so popular today.

    Though our company was founded at the turn of the 20th century, the Fromm and Nieman families have been related by marriage and business since the mid-1800s. Tom, Kathy, Bryan, and Dan Nieman proudly represent the fourth and fifth generations of a business born in Wisconsin in 1904.

    At Fromm, business is a family affair. We invite you to learn a little more about our family.

    Floyd is a fun loving boy! He is almost 2 years old and is a hound mix. This tall, lanky boy is in need of a very active family that will give him plenty of exercise! He does walk well with a harness on and enjoys the company of other dogs. However, he is not good with cats or small animals. He is very smart and willing to learn new things but because of his high energy he is not recommended for homes with small children.  He would be a great couch potato once his energy is wore out.

    Sassy is a 12 year old Miki who arrived at HAWS after her owner passed away. She is a sweet little old lady looking for her retirement home! Sassy looks forward to spending time lying next to you or on your lap and receiving nice pets. She may even roll over for a belly rub. Based on her behavior at here, she seems to be good with cats and is good with other dogs.  If you are looking for a low-key dog, she is your gal!

    Born Free Demo this Saturday

    Stop in at our Mukwonago store between 10am-2pm on Saturday, March 25th to chat with a representative from Born Free! Here's a little about them from their website:

    Born Free is a dog food born out of a passion and allegiance to man’s best friend.

    As a 4th generation, family-run, distributor of canine and feline nutrition products, we believe that the simplest nutrition is the best. In 2010 we saw a need for a product that respected the way dogs were born to eat, with a focus on high-quality protein. So we formed Born Free, a nature-inspired line of dog food that honors the birthright of every dog to clean air, fresh water, and good real food.

    In addition to high-quality protein we select vegetables specifically for their nutritional value. And Born Free is always free of grains, gluten, and unnecessary fillers.

    We believe in building a legacy, for our dogs, and our sons and daughters — for generations to come. Producing the highest quality food always has been, and always will be, our #1 value at Born Free. We’ve partnered with the best, family-owned pet food manufacturer in America, and we take a hands-on approach to ingredient selection, production and testing — to ensure that Born Free is the best for our pets and yours.

     

    HAWS Pets of the Week

    The lucky family that adopts one of the pets featured here on our blog will receive a coupon from HAWS good for a “congratulations” gift bag from End of the Leash!

    To learn more about how to adopt through HAWS, please visit their adoption page.  You may also give them a call at 262.542.8851.

    Hunter is a 4-year-old lab mix! He is in need of a diet so he can get his body back into swimsuit shape for the summer.  His new family will have to make sure they don’t leave good stuff on the counter--he will help himself to anything he can find.  Since he is such a large boy, a home with small children would not be the best fit. He does get along with other dogs and cats as well.

    Clay is a 5-year-old pit mix who is as sweet as can be! He has been with HAWS since November--our longest-term dog resident.  The shelter was a very scary place for him so luckily there was a wonderful family who has been fostering since shortly after he came to us.  He is a great boy that is good with cats and other dogs.  If you are interested in meeting him, call the shelter and we will set up a meet and greet.

    Ms. Wisconsin is a beautiful New Zealand rabbit that made the journey to HAWS from Alabama in hopes of finding her forever home. She is a sweet southern girl. She is pure with pretty ruby eyes! She is very friendly and enjoys attention. She is a social butterfly and loves hanging with all humans and enjoy loving pets!  She even seems to enjoy the attention of children and would do well with them (supervised interactions, of course). She will make a wonderful life-long companion that will bring much happiness into your home.

    Eva is a 9-month-old pit bull/boxer mix. She is a very smart girl who knows many commands. Eva can be a little timid in new situations so she needs a family that is willing to take it slow with her. However, once she is comfortable she will show you all of the energy she has! We see lots of walk and training classes in her future to keep her mind stimulated. So far she has been great with cats and dogs she has met here at the shelter; we feel she would be okay in a home with either.
