BRUSHING A CAT'S TEETH?

Ever wonder how to brush a cat's teeth? Often we seem to focus on brushing our dog's teeth, but cats get periodontal disease too! Take a look at an educational video on how to brush your CATS teeth!










Feline oral resorptive lesions are second only to periodontal disease in incidence of oral disease.  These lesions can be excruciatingly painful, especially when they are advanced. If you probe one of the lesions even under general anesthetic, the cat will react. However, most cats will not show evidence of oral pain, even when the tooth is fractured with an exposed root canal. Please read more on Feline Resorptive Lesions. OUCH!

News in the cold country. Neighbors who leave their pets outside in the sub zero temperatures. They think it's "Okay", they're "Just dogs" they live outside in the wild all the time! Really? Well I'm not sure about your dogs but mine are domesticated. They are accustomed to living indoors. They do not have a "Den" outside to keep them warm and safe from the elements of the cold.





Could I ever imagine one of my beloved dogs chained to the hood of a camper which is lying on the ground un-used? Nope.......








Could I ever imagine one of my beloved dogs chained by a stake under a sole standing tree in the back of my 1/2 acre lot? Nope........








How about chained by the front or back door step, that's good, right? This way they feel they're partly inside, partly a part of the family? NOPE!








My dogs are "family" and many of you will agree. I…
