What to do if your animal is choking

By Ohio.com Published: August 27, 2012

What to do when your pet is choking? It's not as simple as giving a human the Heimlich. Your pet may be scared from choking and isn't preconditioned to understand what you're doing.

Animal first aid expert Denise Fleck tells Animal Nation the first thing you want to do is let the animal try to cough it out first. If that doesn't work, try to see into their mouth to see what the obstruction may be. Seeing what your pet is choking on will help you decide how to remove it properly. Do it wrong and you could push the object further into the pet's throat.

House calls a growing trend among veterinarians

By Sue Manning/ Associated Press Published: August 22, 2012
Pets-House Calls_Kada

LOS ANGELES: Two kids, two pets, two jobs, too much.

That's how it felt to Erin McCarthy when it came time to drag her cat and puppy to the veterinarian. So she jumped on a growing trend among veterinarians and called the vet to her.

House calls are a growing trend among the country's 85,000 veterinarians, said Dr. Bonnie Beaver, a professor at Texas A&M University's College of Veterinary Medicine and director of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists.

It's been a life-saver for McCarthy, whose cat Duke was so afraid of the vet he had to be tranquilized to get there. When he was joined by a Shih Tzu puppy, Pooch, they found a vet who makes house calls, Elisabetta Coletti. McCarthy has made liberal use of text-messaging when a house call isn't necessary.

"When Pooch ate a peppermint patty last week, she was there with instant advice that got us through the night," said McCarthy, a teacher in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Dog treadmill sales brisk as pets shape up

By Sue Manning / Associated Press Published: August 14, 2012
Pets-Treadmills_Kada

LOS ANGELES: Like any true celebrity, Uggie, the Jack Russell terrier from "The Artist" and "Water for Elephants," puts in his time on the treadmill.

At 10, Uggie doesn't do a heavy workout, just a light trot and walking, said owner-trainer Omar Von Muller of Los Angeles. But Von Muller bought Uggie a DogPacer for those times when he can't go out because of weather, work or paparazzi.

"It's important to keep him in shape," Von Muller said. "If they don't get their exercise, they get old too fast, just like people."

Some 3 million dogs across the country were using treadmills in 2010, according to a survey of pet owners by the American Pet Products Association. The group asked about treadmills for the first time in its 2011/2012 survey because the machines were selling so briskly, APPA President Bob Vetere said.

It's World Cat Day, apparently

Although your cat probably thinks it is everyday, today is World Cat Day. That's according to Wikipedia, so it must be true.

Doing a quick search for World Cat Day news items, there is very little. Christmas, apparently, has nothing to worry about. Everyone must be busy dishing out a bowl of cream or buying a fresh batch of catnip.

To celebrate World Cat Day, here is a video of a cat rolling around and sitting in some catnip, like so much

Lost beautiful white cat in Goodyear Heights/Tallmadge area

get-attachment

My kitty "Angel" got out of the house a couple weeks ago. In the past if she got out, she would always come home a couple days later. I have walked around the neighborhood looking and asking if anyone has seen her. She is a gorgeous cat, so I'm assuming someone must have brought her into their home. If you have her, or know who does - please, please let me know.

She is a full bred Ragdoll - looks very similar to a Siamese.
