Feeding Your Pets

7-zukes-dog-treatThere are days where my dog just seems like he is feeling a bit blue on the whole. I try to do what I can to make sure that he is able to feel his best just by purchasing all kinds of different treats and toys that he can have. A good playing session is usually a start to making sure that my dog is feeling a whole lot better. His tail will start wagging right away when we get a chance to play.

The other things that can really cheer up my dog are any types of foods. My dog loves to eat different types of dog treats and especially some of the more natural ones that I buy for him. A Zuke’s dog treat is a great item to give him when I have been gone for a long time during the day and he has been left alone without being able to do anything most of the time.

My dog gets these different types of treats whenever he is good while I am gone. He also gets these for special times after I have started working on some training or tricks with him. It is so much fun to see the way that my dog lights up whenever he is given one of these spectacular treats.

6-natural-cat-treatsWhen I used to give my cats treats, I would generally give my cats a whole bunch of treats on a regular basis. They ate so many treats that they really weren’t eating very much of their cat food. This might have been alright if what they were eating was some healthy kinds of treats, but they were getting very junky treats filled with preservatives and with everything else.

My cats started to get really fat since I was just giving them too many treats. When I talked to my vet, I quickly learned that I should be giving far less treats and the treats that I should be giving were ones that were a lot healthier. I ended up switching over to using some natural cat treats that were a whole lot healthier so that I could keep my cats healthier.

It is wonderful to be able to have some different types of treats that my cats can eat. It is good to know that I can keep my cats healthy just by cutting back on the huge amount of treats that they are getting. With just one or two treats in a day they seem to stay a whole lot healthier.

4-nylabone-dental-chewWhile most people brush their own teeth every single day, they don’t usually think about their pet’s teeth. Only in more recent years have vets started to push for better dental care for animals including regular teeth cleaning. Of course, a teeth cleaning at a vet’s office is something that will not come cheap so it is a good idea to do other things to keep your pet’s teeth clean for as long as possible.

For dogs, one of the best ways that teeth can be kept clean is to purchase some different types of dental chew toys that might be able to help. These chew toys do a lot more to wear off tarter that might otherwise stick onto a dog’s teeth.

Of course another great way to help a dog’s teeth stay clean all of the time is to brush these teeth one a regular basis. You can find dog toothpaste and a toothbrush at many different pet stores. You’ll be able to do a lot more to keep a dog’s teeth clean when you are making sure to get those teeth brushed on a regular basis.

1-pet-food-dishesWhen it comes to feeding your pets, one of the important parts of this process is having a bowl that is right for your pet. Of course, you really don’t have to worry about it being a bowl that is specially made for your pet, but many people like to buy special pet bowls since these are more attractive to have laying around your home all of the time.

One of the key points to keep in mind when you are buying a dish for your pet is the size of a bowl. If you are looking for bowls to feed your cats, you’ll need differently sized pet food dishes than you might need if you are feeding a large dog. Although cats are small, you’ll want to make sure to offer them a wide bowl so that the bowl doesn’t bother their whiskers while they are eating out of it.

The size of a bowl also must be right for the amount of food that you’ll be feeding to your pet. If you have to have a lot of food available at meal times, then you’ll need a much larger bowl than if you are feeding your pet only small meals.
