Ms. Wisconsin is a 7-month-old New Zealand bunny. She came to HAWS all the way from Alabama. Along with her came her babies who are currently in foster care. Ms. Wisconsin wasn't too fond of being a mom, as she is so young herself. She really would love a home where she can just relax and figure life out on her own.

Slink is a wonderful boy that was a stray before coming to HAWS. He is a real character--he will have you laughing all day long. He constantly seeks out human attention and seems to be lonely without another ferret friend to scamper about and play with.

What would a holiday be without being able to share some of our yummy food with our best furry friends?
Dr. Becker compiled a list of 15 foods that are safe to share with your dogs and kitties.  

15 Thanksgiving Foods and Snacks Safe to Share with Your Dog or Cat
(excerpted from healthypets.mercola.com.  Click the link for the entire article!)

Most of these foods will be more popular with dogs than cats, but they're safe for both. They should be served plain (no sugar, salt, or spices, butter, or other additives), in moderation, and in small portions.

As an added bonus, even conventionally grown broccoli is one of the cleanest (most pesticide-free) foods you can buy. Your pet may prefer broccoli steamed.

Beneficial gut bacteria provided by probiotics break down and eliminate heavy metals and other toxins from the body, and perform a number of other important functions.

  1. Apples. Apples contain powerful antioxidants and vitamin C. Serve apple slices to your pet, but never the core or seeds.
  2. Blueberries. Fresh or frozen, blueberries are loaded with phytochemicals, and their deep blue hue is the result of anthocyanidins, which are powerful antioxidants. Blueberries are also a good source of healthy fiber, manganese, and vitamins C and E. Introduce blueberries slowly to your pet – too much, too soon can cause a digestive upset.
  3. Carrots. Carrots are low in calories and high in fiber and vitamins. Many dogs enjoy snacking on a fresh crunchy carrot.
  4. Broccoli. Broccoli supports detoxification processes in your pet's body; contains healthy fiber to aid digestion; is rich in beneficial nutrients like potassium, calcium, protein, and vitamin C; has anti-inflammatory properties; supports eye health; helps repair skin damage; and supports heart health.
  5. Kale. This dark green cruciferous vegetable is loaded with vitamins (especially vitamins K, A, and C), iron, and antioxidants. It helps with liver detoxification and also has anti-inflammatory properties.
  6. Fermented vegetables. If you happen to be serving fermented veggiesas part of your Thanksgiving feast, definitely offer some to your pet. Fermented foods are potent detoxifiers and contain much higher levels of probiotics and vitamin K2 than supplements can provide.
  7. Raw pumpkin seeds. Pepitas, or raw pumpkin seeds, are a rich source of minerals, vitamin K, and phytosterols. They also contain L-tryptophan and are a good source of zinc, vitamin E, and B vitamins. Research suggests pumpkin seeds can prevent calcium oxalate kidney stones, reduce inflammation caused by arthritis, and support prostate health.
  8. Sweet potatoes. Sweet potatoes are rich in beta-carotene and antioxidants, and are also high in vitamins A and C. Sweet potatoes with purple flesh have potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that may lower the risk from heavy metals and oxygen radicals.
  9. Green beans. Fresh, locally grown green beans are a source of vitamins A, C, and K. They also provide calcium, copper, fiber, folic acid, iron, niacin, manganese, potassium, riboflavin, and thiamin, as well as beta-carotene.
  10. Spinach. This green leafy vegetable has anti-inflammatory properties and can help support heart health.
  11. Asparagus. Asparagus is an excellent source of vitamin K, A, B1, B2, C, and E, along with the folate, iron, copper, fiber, manganese, and potassium.
  12. Pumpkin. Pumpkin is a great source of fiber, vitamin A, and antioxidants. It can help alleviate both diarrhea and constipation. Make sure to feed your pet either fresh pumpkin or 100 percent canned pumpkin – not pumpkin pie filling.
  13. Yogurt. Plain organic yogurt is high in protein and calcium, and most pets love it.
  14. Cottage cheese. Like yogurt, plain organic cottage cheese is high in calcium and protein.
  15. Raw almonds, cashews, and Brazil nuts. These nuts, served in moderation and very small portions, are safe for dogs. Many nuts are not – especially tree nuts – so stick with these three to be on the safe side.

If you're in the mood to prepare some special homemade treats for your animal companion over the holidays, be sure to request my free e-book Homemade Treats for Healthy Pets, which contains nutritious, easy-to-prepare recipes for both cats and dogs.

Scarlet and Ruby are a beautiful pair of bonded bunnies. They are very friendly and love to hang out with their human friends.

Buzz is about a year old. He is a little on they shy side, he was one of the many cats that came to HAWS from a hoarding situation in October. His new family will have to be sure to go slow with him until he is able to feel comfortable with his people. He would be forever grateful to a home of his own.

Izzy came to HAWS as a stray. We estimate her to be approximately 2 years old. She is calm and good-natured. She is an observer and adores the window and all that goes on outside! She will allow you to pet her but not for long.  She also enjoys treats and will take them gently from your hand. 

Meet Quincy! He was found wandering around in a store in downtown Waukesha. He is a California Quail--not a native species to Wisconsin. He cannot live in the wild in Wisconsin.  He sure would appreciate a loving and safe home.

 

Help Fido and Fluffy have a happy Halloween!

This comprehensive article from The Humane Society of the United States is a must-read if you celebrate Halloween. While some pets have laid-back personalities and don't mind being dressed up or seeing strange "people" come to the door, other pets need a quiet room away from all the human fun. Please give your furry companion a safe and secure place to be while you celebrate.

Remmi is a two year old Beagle mix. She needs a home that will give her lots of opportunity to expend her energy. Going for walks, playing with toys, and treat puzzles would be great outlets for her.

Emergency Care & CPR for Your Pet

What symptoms demand a visit to the vet and what can you safely treat at home?  

We are sharing two excellent resources with you via Dr. Karen Becker and the AVMA (American Veterinarian Medical Association). They cover almost 2 dozen symptoms and conditions that should be tended to by your veterinarian immediately, as well as at-home first aid tips for the easy-to-treat situation, and two videos--one demonstrating the ABCs of pet CPR, and the other showing you how to do a physical exam on your pet at home.

We have included the videos below, but be sure to click on the link for Dr. Becker's full article to get the rest of the important information!

Sophie is a beautiful 2 year old Calico. She made her way to HAWS all the way from Alabama! She has had lots of changes in her life in the past couple of months. We can tell that she is not a fan of being picked up and would prefer that you would played with her toys instead.

Nell is a little over a year old.  She has not quite mastered all of her manners so her new family will have to have patience with helping her learn. A home without a cat would be best as she is too intense with them. Having another dog to play with would not be out of the question but she LOVES to play with her toys.

Rotate For Their Health!

We are great advocates of rotating foods, and here is a great article on why it is so important!

Steve Brown is a staunch advocate of feeding raw, which we agree is the healthiest way for most pets to eat.  

However, the benefits of rotating apply to whatever form you feed your pet in--raw, canned or dry.

Fall Safety Tips for your Pet

As a pet guardian, you know that each holiday, celebration, change of season, and memorable event in the lives of humans comes with a list of potential hazards for furry family members. And you know that it's important to be prepared to insure your pet gets to enjoy special occasions right along with the rest of your family.

The change of season from summer to fall presents certain risks for pets, such as back-to-school purchases including those colorful piles of brand new school supplies on your kitchen or dining room table. And if you've indulged your kids with fruit-scented pencils and erasers, they can attract pets (especially dogs) like moths to a flame.

PetMD compiled a list of the 10 most commonly used school supplies that present a potential choking hazard for pets:1

  • Erasers
  • Glue sticks/bottled glue
  • Coins
  • Action figures/small dolls
  • Bouncy balls
  • Crayons
  • Markers
  • Pencils (even small splinters can get lodged in the mouth and esophagus)
  • Pens (watch out especially for pen caps)
  • Paperclips

According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), fortunately these items are considered "low toxicity" to pets. This means they probably won't cause your dog or cat serious problems unless large amounts are ingested.2

However, there is the potential for GI upset and even a blockage, so be sure the kiddos keep their school supplies out of reach of your pet.  Read more...

Senior Dog Brain Power!

 

Fortunately, there are many things you can do to help your aging dog maintain good mental function for as long as possible, and delay the onset and progression of cognitive decline.

seniordog2.jpg
  1. The foundation for good health and vitality for pets of any age is a nutritionally balanced meat-based diet made from whole, fresh, organic, non-GMO ingredients suitable for your carnivorous dog.
  2. Your pet's diet should also include an abundance of omega-3 essential fats, such as krill oil, which are critical for cognitive health.
  3. Keep your dog's body and mind active with regular age-appropriate physical activity and mental stimulation (puzzles and treat-release toys can be beneficial). Senior and geriatric dogs need daily exercise to maintain good health and a resilient frame.
  4. I also recommend massage, chiropractic care, acupuncture, and/or activities like water exercise to help maintain muscle tone and balance, and alleviate joint pain.
  5. Make sure your dog has opportunities to socialize with other pets and people.
  6. Provide your dog with a SAMe (S-adenosylmethionine) supplement as a safe and effective way to stall or improve mental decline. Consult your holistic or integrative veterinarian about dosing.
  7. Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) have been shown to improve brain energy metabolism and decrease the amyloid protein buildup that results in brain lesions in older pets. Coconut oil is a rich source of MCTs. I recommend 1/4 teaspoon for every 10 pounds of body weight twice daily for basic MCT support.
  8. Other supplements to consider are jellyfish extracts,2 resveratrol (Japanese knotweed), which protects against free radical damage and beta-amyloid deposits, ginkgo biloba, gotu kola, and phosphatidylserine — a nutritional supplement that can inhibit age-related cognitive deficits. Again, you should consult your holistic veterinarian for dosing guidance.
  9. Keep your dog at a healthy size — overweight pets are at significant increased risk for disease as they age.
  10. Maintain your pet's dental health.

Darling is the perfect name for this sweet gal! She came to HAWS as a stray. We think she is about 12 years old so a retirement home is what she is looking for! If you have other dogs or cats in your home, no problem--she seems to get along with both. She also enjoys going for walks...they may not be long but she loves them!

Buttons is a 1 year old Chihuahua Mix. She came to HAWS from Alabama and was pregnant. All of her puppies have been adopted--now it is her turn. She likes her things to be hers, so she would need to be the only pet in house. She is curious with new people but can be a little shy and under-confident in certain situations, so taking things slow with her will be the best option.

Louie is a very handsome big boy who needs to lose some weight. He willrequire a large home in which to live so he can be active and also a healthy diet to help him lose some weight! An exercise pen home for me is a must. You would get some much enjoyment from watching me scamper about and explore new things!

Mr. Biggs is just a year old.  He loves to play and explore new things. He has lots of places to go and lots of things to do!  If you are looking for a lap cat, he is not your guy. However, if you are looking for a cat that will make you laugh, give you head butts and purrs he is for you! 

Rita Rose104398A.jpg

Rita Rae is a 2 year old Presa Canario. She is very friendly and LOVES water. She is playful, sweet but also independent. She is playful with large and small dogs but is too aroused with cats. If she isn't in the water, you will catch her playing with her tennis balls! 

Hope to see you soon!

Kitty is a 5-year-old girl looking for someone to love her and help her stick to her diet and exercise plan. She weighed in at 25lbs when she got to HAWS. Kitty has lost a few pounds since she has been here. You may even see her walking around in the lobby. She gets along well with dogs, but would do best as an only cat.

Stella is a sweet 2-year-old Pointer Mix. She is very timid and takes a little while to warm up to people so small children are not recommended. She would not do well in a home with a cat, but may be okay with a smaller, quiet dog. Stella is a sweet girl but likes her independence.

Tango is a Campbell's Russian Dwarf Hamster.  He is pretty much on the move all the time. He can be difficult to handle but with time and patience he might learn to enjoy it!
