New Year’s Resolutions for Your Dog & Cat

Out2News.com

Out2News.com

Article by: Robin Hall – Out2News/Out2martincounty.com

It may be hard to believe, but once again the time has come to make our New Year’s resolutions. And since many of the promises we make ourselves might eventually fizzle out, we recommend trying something new this year: Make resolutions for your dog!

Whether you need to get back on track with his daily exercise or make that vet appointment you’ve been meaning to schedule, here are plenty of ideas for goals to help your dog have a happier and healthier 2018.     And, hey, maybe accomplishing your dog’s resolutions will inspire you to keep yours this year!

Out2News.comDid your pets over indulge during the holidays? Now that the festivities are over and the New Year is under way, treat your pet to some healthier habits that will benefit him throughout the coming years.

BREAK BAD HABITS

With so much to do over the holiday season, daily routines tend to take a back seat not just for humans but for their pets, too. Meal times tend to be disrupted as well as exercise regimes and sleep cycles. Changes in routines can cause anxiety in some pets which can lead to behavior problems. If you were away from the home for many hours, whether holiday shopping or partying, you may have returned home to a shredded shoe or a toppled trash can. Getting your pet back on his regular routine and reminding should help ease the stress he may have been feeling and should improve any naughty behavior he was exhibiting.

MAINTAIN A HEALTHY WEIGHT

If one too many holiday treats made their way under the table during holiday meals, it’s time to get your furry friend back on a healthy and nutritious daily diet. Over 50 percent of dogs and roughly 58% of cats in the U.S. are classified as overweight, according to the Association of Pet Obesity Prevention. Obesity will shorten the life of your pet so it is very important to help your dog or cat maintain a healthy weight by offering him a diet that has a high nutritional content such as VIAND which contains approximately six times the nutritional value of one typical bag of dog food. VIAND takes the guesswork out of buying healthy pet food for your dog or cat so that you can enjoy them for many years to come!

GET PHYSICAL

Like humans, pets need daily exercise. 20 – 30 minutes of exercise per day in recommended for optimal pet health. Exercise helps pets release energy, burn calories, and increases strength, endurance and cardiovascular health. Walking your dog provides a special bonding opportunity for you and your pet while also giving him the chance to get out and explore his surroundings. Dogs also love tug toys which is another fun way for him to exercise and bond with his human family. As for cats, they need exercise, too! If your feline is looking a bit flabby after the holidays, it’s time to pull out some of their favorite toys, as well. Don’t forget to provide plenty of vertical spaces to encourage your cat to climb and jump up. Moving his food bowl to a new spot that requires him to jump up to reach it, will get his body moving. A meat-rich, dry cat food made with no artificial flavors, colors or fillers will further motivate him to find his bowl at any height. Playing with your dog or cat is always a happy time for both pet and owner, and it will help keep your beloved pet in good health.

DETOX

Implement a cleansing diet for your dog to release excess toxins and to allow their body to rejuvenate and purify. Introduce VIAND’s cleansing detox formula made just for pets. Antioxidants for pets are becoming increasingly more important to the health and well-being of our four-legged friends as processed foods and environmental pollutants are producing toxins in our pets’ systems. Super Greens, a premium nutritional supplement for pets, can help reduce cellular oxidation and diminish the destructive effects that free radicals have on the cells of our pets’ bodies.

CONSIDER SUPPLEMENTS

Although it is best for pets to get their nutrients from a healthy, balanced nutrient-rich pet food, some pets may not be getting enough of what they need. Pets that have a compromised immune system due to age or other underlying illnesses may need a vitamin or mineral boost. B-Complex for example, is a team of all the essential B vitamins that work to carry out many metabolic functions. B vitamins for pets can help maintain the health of the nerves, skin, eyes, hair and liver, as well as healthy muscle tone in the gastrointestinal tract.

Make 2018 the best year ever for you and your pet!
Happy New Year from Out2News!

Fiona

Fiona is a beautiful 1 year old female available for adoption at the HSTC North Thrift Store. She is a shy gal that loves to be cuddled. She just returned from foster and her foster mom spoiled her over the holidays by brushing her face with a toothbrush and singing Christmas carols to her! What a vacation that was! Fiona came is as a stray with her kittens and has been at our shelter since August. She is a wonderful kitty looking for a quiet forever home to be spoiled in. If you would like to meet this sweetheart you can stop by our thrift store at 1099 NW 21st St, Stuart. She will be waiting patiently for you!

Ox

Ox is a Dolly’s Dream Dog!
This means that his adoption fee has been paid AND he comes with a bunch of extra goodies to help him adjust to his new home!

Ox has been in the care of The Humane Society of the Treasure Coast since the beginning of December 2017. This 5 year old, handsome American Staffordshire Terrier mix originally arrived as a stray and we were unable to contact his owner. When he was picked-up by a Martin County Animal Service Officer, the officer was advised that Ox does not get along with cats at all. However, he has had some interactions with dogs here at the shelter and has not had any problems being polite one-on-one; staff would still recommend a meet-and-greet between Ox and any potential doggie siblings.

Ox is an extremely sweet boy; he adores being lavished with attention. Ox walks well on leash but occasionally becomes overly excited by other dogs walking nearby. When he is excited to meet other dogs, you suddenly realize that Ox is as strong as an ox! His photos do not do his muscular physique justice; he almost resembles a canine body builder!

If this strong, sweet pup sounds like the ideal pal for you, stop on by to meet him!

Mother Cats Deserve Loving Homes

Out2News.comOut2News.com

Article by: Shannon Borrego

Let’s give three cheers for mothers! The annual nod given on Mother’s Day isn’t nearly sufficient to acknowledge these tireless nurturers. Human mothers aren’t the only ones who deserve appreciation, however. The mothers of many species exhibit patience, forbearance, generosity and self-sacrifice when raising their young.

At Caring Fields Felines, we see mother cats in action almost every day. These multi-tasking felines are usually brought to us with litters of one to six kittens. Although the average number of kittens born to a litter is between 3 and 5, cats are capable of producing litters of over 10! These bouncing babies require a lot from their mothers. Nursing a litter of kittens can be quite draining for them. And, as the kittens grow, they require hours of grooming and training from Mom.

So, when the kittens are grown and ready for adoption, that should be “me” time for the moms, right? After all, they’ve earned a spot in a loving home. Sadly, these cats often get overlooked. Naturally the kittens garner a lot of attention, while the mother, often a lovely cat in her own right, fades into the background.

Currently, CFF has several beautiful mother cats available for adoption. Sara, a sleek black beauty, came from a hoarding situation. Her three 3 kittens all found homes and she would like one, too. She thrives on being brushed and enjoys carrying on a “conversation” with her human friends. One of Sara’s ears is permanently crinkled due to a hematoma caused by an infection that was never treated in her previous home. But, this just gives her added character!

Vivian, a striking calico, has been a mother extraordinaire. Not only did she raise 6 kittens of her own, she also served as a surrogate mother for two additional orphaned kittens. Vivian’s personality is very low key and calm. Perhaps, after raising 8 kittens, nothing much bothers her! She certainly deserves a spot in a loving, doting home of her own.

Both Sara and Vivian currently live with a “family” of 20 cats and they get along well with others. Either cat would fit nicely into a home situation. If you’d like to meet these or other cats at our sanctuary, please give us a call and schedule a visit. (772-463-7386)

About the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast – Since 1955, the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast, 4100 SW Leighton Farm Ave. in Palm City, has been the leading advocate for homeless, abused and abandoned animals in Martin County.

All Pets Go To Heaven

Out2News.com

Article by: Robin Hall – Out2News/Out2martincounty.com

There is a very special place where beloved pets go after they die. This is only a temporary location. But there are trees and grass and lakes, and everything they love. Here they can play and eat and sleep, even better than they did, before they died. Now, there are no aches or worries or dangers of any kind to trouble or threaten them. The only joy missing is their beloved human companion, you.

All health is restored completely, and all injuries are healed. Dogs and cats play with each other like youngsters, and they do not have time to feel lonely for you. They miss you, and with the special wisdom that animals have, they trust that this condition will get better. And they confidently wait as they frolic.

A wonderful day will come for each of them, when in the middle of playing they will suddenly feel something is different. And all their senses will be at the height of excitement and exuberance. They will sniff the air and look off in the distance where they recognize that dearly loved special presence. Then they will call out in elation, and with eyes shining and tail going wild, tear off at a full gallop, almost flying over the green grass.

The bond that we form with animals can be very deep and fulfilling, and the loss of a beloved animal can have an impact on us that is as great, or even greater, than the loss of a family member or friend. This bond is what makes our interactions with animals rich and rewarding, but also what makes the grief process so complicated. The grief can seem to come in waves, may be brought on more intensely by a sight or sound that sparks your memory, and may seem overwhelming at times.

After your pet has died or been lost, it is natural and normal to feel grief and sorrow. The amount of time a person grieves for the loss of their pet may be very different for different people. Although grief is an internal and private response, there are certain stages of grief that most people experience, and not everyone experiences them all or in the same order.Anger and guilt often follow denial.

Your anger may be directed toward people you normally love and respect, including your family, friends or your veterinarian. People coping with death will often say things that they do not really mean, unintentionally hurting those whom they do not mean to hurt.

Depression is a common experience after the death of a special pet. The tears flow, there are knots in your stomach, and you feel drained of all your energy. Day-to-day tasks can seem impossible to perform and you may feel is isolated and alone. Many depressed people will avoid the company of friends and family.

You will come to terms with your feelings. You begin to accept your pet’s death. Resolution has occurred when you can remember your pet and your time with them without feeling the intense grief and emotional pain you previously felt. Acceptance and resolution are normal and do not mean that you no longer feel a sense of loss, just that you have come to terms with the fact that your pet has died. Everyone experiences the stages of grief, grieving is always a very personal process. Allow yourself time to grieve and heal, and be thankful that your life was made that much better by sharing it with your beloved pet.

Memorializing a pet can be a healthy part of the grieving process. A framed photo or a photo album can help remind a pet parent of their pet. Some people keep the ashes of their pets and bury them in a spot favored by their pet. Creating a journal that includes stories about the things your dog did will help you focus on the good times you spent together.   Photographs record those special moments and lock them forever in time. Have a professional portrait painted as a memorial to your dog companion. If you enjoy gardening, plant a tree, perennial, bush or shrub in memory of your dog. Donate to an animal organization in your dog’s name.  Some pet lovers place a brick or stone with their pet’s name painted on it in their gardens or they buy specially designed and inscribed grave markers if their pet is buried on their property.

Realizing that a seemingly trifle, yet possibly most-significant part of pet ownership is doing the right thing for our pets at the end of their lives. Sometimes the hardest things to do are the best things we can do. Loving animals teaches us something about ourselves and so does letting them go…
