Randy came to HAWS as a stray--a nice person found him under a car and brought him here. He is a little over a year old and as sweet as can be! He would love for you to pet him all day long!

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. She is a very vocal dog so we would not recommend she not live in an apartment or condo. If you are looking for love Remmi is for you--she is very friendly and sweet!

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...

Zoey is 8 years old and hasn't been at a shelter before--she is very shy and scared here. Even though HAWS makes her as comfortable as possible, it is not the same as being in her own home. She wants you to know that once you spend enough time with her she is very affectionate.

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.

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.

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!

Dog Anxiety and Omega-3 Fats

Now that the noisiest part of the 4th of July holiday weekend is over, if your dog is still exhibiting signs of anxiety there are some dietary factors you can consider that may contribute to his relief. Remember that anxiety can manifest in many ways outside of hiding, panting or shaking--it could be excess barking, aggressiveness, trying to escape or even destructive behavior.

In her article, "Nearly 1 in 3 Dogs Suffer From This Often Easily Fixed Issue", Dr. Becker discusses how Omega-3 fats nourish the oh-so-important neurotransmitters which provide feelings of calm and happiness.  She gives details on supplementing doses as well as a few other dietary pointers for a happy, well-balanced and relaxed pup!

Bringing Up Puppies & Kittens

Kittens 104.jpg

Puppies and kittens are so darned cute! And ornery!  And while their playful and silly antics are immensely entertaining, this age is prime time to teach them the ropes of how to coexist with the humans in their lives and in our human surroundings.

If you think about it, we really do ask quite a lot of our animal companions when it comes to "minding their manners"...so being sure to clearly and appropriately show them what is acceptable and what is not is paramount for a happy, harmonious household!

Got a puppy?  Check out The Whole Dog Journal's article, "Take Control of Puppy Chewing: 6 Steps to Teaching Your Pup the Trade Game."  

Got a kitten?  The Humane Society of the United States published an article called, "Teach Your Kitten How to Play Nice."

These two are a sweet pair of best buddies and must be adopted together. McFluffer is a bit of an unusual guinea pig, he is called a Trexel because of his long curly hair. He will need special care as he will need his curly flowing locks trimmed up so they do not drag along the ground and get matted by bedding. Porkchop is a smooth coated pig so he does not need any special care.

Oatmeal is a happy and busy little gerbil. Some of his favorite things to do are to dig tunnels in his bedding and run in his wheel! He also enjoys gnawing on his cardboard tubes. He is sure fun to watch scamper about!

Storm Season Has Arrived

Ah, spring and summer. We've waited long winter months for green, rain and warm sun!  While we're thankful for our gardens growing, our pets may be experiencing stress from the rumbles and cracks of the season's thunderstorms.  

The Humane Society of the United States compiled a helpful article talking about what you can do--and what you SHOULDN'T do, which is equally as important!--if your pet has a fear of storms or other loud noises.  Check out their article here --> Fear of Thunder and Other Loud Noises: You can help make sounds less scary to your dog

In addition, at End of the Leash we have several aids you can try to help your pet feel safe and calm during storms.  Here are 3 of our most popular products!  Click on the photos for more details.

Reba is a year-and-a-half old Hound Mix who came to HAWS from Alabama. We are recommending a quieter home with kids age 10 and older. We may raise or lower this recommendation as she begins to show more personality here. She is a little selective with dogs and if adopters have cats we would do a free roaming cat test for her. Reba is a little shy at first, but such a love when she warms up to you!

Wondercide Works for Fleas & Ticks!

End of the Leash carries several non-chemical products for flea and tick season! Wondercide Flea & Tick Control is one of them!  We have all 3 formulations, which are each 10% cedar oil.  (The cedar does have a strong scent--a few hours will take the edge off!)  Watch the video below for their story, or check out this FAQ sheet for more details!

End of the Leash Customer testimonial:  We have been using Wondercide on our two dogs who are exposed to a very tick-heavy area 1-2 hours a day.  It has so far worked better than any other natural product! When applied regularly--every day or two--we have had little to no ticks! At first, between the 2 dogs we would find maybe 1 or 2 ticks a week, but that has gone down to zero lately as we have found the right frequency for application and amount to apply for our dogs and particular exposure.  The scent is somewhat strong when first applied, but we let them run outside right after so it wears off quickly and they are left with a mild cedar/lemongrass scent that we enjoy.  Because of the hydrated silica base, their fur appears "oily" at first but absorbs within a few hours. It has never stained any furniture, clothing or bedding--in fact we spray their bedding with it, too!  We love Wondercide and completely recommend!  ~A Happy EOTL Customer
