Pets Lounge In Eco-Friendly Luxury

Lounge vs. Sleep

In the human world, we differentiate between the places that we sleep and the places that we relax or lounge. For sleep, almost all of us certainly use a bed. To relax, we use a variety of methods including a couch, sofa, lounge chair, hammock, beanbag chair, etc. Why shouldn’t this be any different for our pets? With summertime right around the corner,

Top 5 Pet Tips for Winter Season

          Now unlike most, it’s true that I am a Los Angeles native, born and raised. But every now and again we are taken back to our roots. As we progress and move forward to launch our project, dealwagger.com, I am going to be temporarily (and excitably) residing in NYC. Since my mother grew up there and brought me up with a New Yorker mentality, a piece of me has always been there. But what about this weather situation??? Talk about a change in season. Its ironic that I’ve been doing my “New York” shopping in near-perfect weather out here in LA preparing to layer myself back East.  What about our pets??
           
           I began considering changes in their daily routine. Questions like:
    • Are their natural coats enough of a coat or will they catch a cold/flu?
    • Will exercise decrease if I go out less?
    • Do they need boots for rainy/icey/snowy weather?
    • Am I doing enough to protect my dog from these conditions?
          Here are your Top 5 Tips that dealwagger.com recommends in order to make the smooth transition to winter while protecting your pet as best you can.
  1. Visit your Veterinarian, especially if its been a long time. I know it takes time that you may have trouble finding but I assure you this move is worth it. Vets have the knowledge to tell whether your pet has any medical conditions that may compromise his or her ability to regulate body heat. Conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease or hormonal imbalances. Perfect starting point.
  2. Does my dog need a sweater? An article on Pet Sugar says “The best way to tell what your animal needs is to watch his behavior. If your Italian Greyhound is shivering or trying to enter every open door on his evening walk around the city, chances are, he’d appreciate an extra layer. Remember, more activity makes your pets warmer just like running will make you break into a sweat faster than a leisurely stroll, so a pup sitting outside will get colder than when chasing his pals around a NYC dog park. Use your judgment and don’t let anyone else decide for you.”
  3. Does my dog need booties? A “Neighborhood Files” article on Patch.com explains “Just as we pick up rock salt, ice and chemical ice melts on our boots, so do our pets collect it on their foot pads. Take a damp towel to their feet and undersides; this’ll prevent chapped, raw feet and, from grooming, potential inflammation in the digestive tract. I personally find booties to be unnatural and obnoxious to put on, so I would rule them out unless going for real outdoor excursions that require a rubber-bottomed bootie.
  4. Decrease in exercise: This is a factor of winter mostly because human beings ourselves find it uncomfortable to be outside when it is very cold, so our exercise levels decrease. However, your dog should not have to pay the price. By ensuring your dog is warm he or she will usually enjoy getting out and exerting themselves physically to the point of warmth. If you cannot get outside, playing games like Tug Of War are your best bet for physical exertion in doors. Maybe your dog wouldn’t mind running on a treadmill, I have seen this before. See the ASPCA’s Winter Exercise Guidelines for more details on this topic.
  5. Food Concerns: Since it is colder, it takes more energy out of our bodies to regulate our own temperature.  Therefore, we need to feed our pets a little bit extra calories. Hey, that’s a great excuse for humans too, so let’s eat! Also, make sure they are getting plenty of fresh water– according to the American Kennel Club, “snow is not a satisfactory substitute for water”. For other great Winter tips, see their article here.

Take a Closer Look at Your Pet’s Teeth

          About a year and a half ago, I adopted a beautiful “Orange Flame” Siamese female cat from a nice grade school teacher who lived near Los Feliz in Los Angeles, CA. The teacher had also adopted Isabella from a woman who rescued Isabella off the streets while she was pregnant, but claimed Isabella was too aggressive toward her older cat, and therefore, Isabella had to go. I took a chance with her and its been working out wonderfully. Unfortunately, no one knows where her babies went, and by the way: Isabella’s breath doesn’t exactly help you work up an appetite.
            My neighbor Amy was the first one to mention to me that perhaps Isabella has a problem with her teeth considering her breath was so vial. I considered this, but had been quite busy with dealwagger.com and other life activities so I let the thought pass. After all, she was eating well and since I’d known her she was always a bit grumpy and growly. Just yesterday, Amy noticed that she had an infected tooth and after I took a look, I felt so bad and guilty that I hadn’t noticed it sooner. Isabella may have been in pain or discomfort all this time and I could have fixed this months ago.
           Aside from feeling guilt that your beloved pet might have been in pain unknown to you, it is very dangerous to leave a dental issue neglected for your pet. After doing some research and heeding some warning from people with common knowledge of pet health, I learned that an infected tooth can poison our pets, causing internal organ failure eventually. 
            I originally found out an answer to my questions by a vet on justanswer.com where experts answer questions under almost any subtopic of things. Click here to see the exact thread I discovered re: my cat’s infected tooth/stinky breath.
   
According to Cat World, it is prudent for cat owners to keep a regular check of your cat’s mouth & seek veterinary attention if you notice anything amiss. Things to look for include;
  • Bad breath (this is one of the most common symptoms of a dental problem)
  • Drooling
  • Lumps or bumps
  • Red, inflamed or bleeding gums
  • Reluctance to eat, especially hard foods
  • Reluctance to groom

            This morning I took her into the vet and after 1 minute he declared “Isabella is a healthy cat, but she does have an abscessed tooth that needs to come out”. Isabella was then left at the hospital and when I called to ask about giving her a rabies shot as well, they mentioned that Isabella is done with her dentistry already and that she had 4 extractions. Wow. I can pick her up in 2 hours.

Halloween Game-Day: Chocolate vs. Dogs

There are many natural, loving marriages of elements in this world– to name a few: Wine and Cheese, Pancakes and Maple Syrup, Ricky and Lucy, Hummus and Pita, Pretzels and Mustard, Thanksgiving and Turkey, etc… The list goes on. However, we are left with the mind-boggling question of what went sour between the marriage of Halloween and Dogs???
One would think the marriage had been going well. After all, I’ve seen many advertisements and plugs, locally and nationally, for dog-friendly Halloween events and it warms my heart to see all of the effort and goodwill being put into action by our pro-active community. I don’t know what could be cuter than dressing your dog up as a former major league baseball player (Manny Ramirez) who still holds an extremely controversial reputation with continued run-ins with law enforcement. But doesn’t Frankie look darling in his dread-lock get-up?
So what’s the big issue here? Well, the problem seems to lie in the cocoa. To put it more simply and straightforward, chocolate CAN kill dogs and cats, though it usually doesn’t if you get quick veterinary intervention. According to Dr. Ahna Brutlag, the assistant director of veterinary services at Pet Poison Helpline

What is a QR Code and Why Should I Care?

I keep hearing a buzz and a bark about a new trend of people using QR codes (abbreviated from Quick Response code); mostly when it comes to serving a purpose in their business or personal lives. QR code is a type of matrix barcode first designed for the automotive industry in 1994 to track cars during manufacturing. More recently, the system has become popular outside of the auto industry due to its fast readability and comparatively large storage capacity. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded can be made up of any kind of data (e.g., binary, alphanumeric) and many are using these codes to link back to a specific web URL address or let’s just call it a specific website.


Business Tooligans, a Social Media Manager magazine featured a piece on QR codes and gained insight about them from an accomplished Marketing and PR book author/blogger named David Meerman Scott. Here are a few examples that he presents to us; so come explore some real-life uses of QR code to see how we can benefit:

1) Doctors, dentists, and vets could hand out a QR code on a card that corresponds to different medical conditions so patients can independently learn more about illnesses.

2) Physical therapists, personal trainers, and chiropractors can create videos on how to properly do exercises at home and pass them along to customers so they can safely get in shape.

3) Rock bands can offer free music downloads to fans at gigs. Mickey Hart does this. At a Rhythm Devils gig this summer, he passed out music download cards (a bit larger than a business card) with a QR code for free tunes.

4) Businesspeople could have a QR code on your business card that links to your blog.

 Now, considering we are dealwagger.com, we need a way to tie this whole QR code hysteria into our pets’ lives or else you would think that this blog was created to teach marketing strategies. Well, how about marketing our pets? Just bare with us!

Let’s switch gears and think pet collars. A Seattle-based startup named Dynotag launched recently that allows users to create QR codes for free and link those codes to a personal Web page. The QR code can be printed out in the form of a tag and attached to something that may potentially become lost. It could work well for lost luggage, but we are foremost considering attaching a tag to the collar of a dog or another pet. The webpage could list personal information about the dog including name, address, favorite treats, vaccines and other important details. In addition, Dynotag can send the user an email or text notification when the tag is scanned as well as showing visitor locations on a map assuming the scanning device has GPS capabilities. Standard tags are free for anyone to create through the site! Premium tags are offered as well.

Another Seattle startup called PetHub is also using QR codes to keep track of pets. Pet owners can build out a pet’s profile on the site to contain photos and personal information about the animal. The tag that connects to the collar not only lists the QR code, but also a web address on the opposite side in case the person that finds the lost animal doesn’t understand what to do with the QR code. Pet owners can purchase the tag for $12.95 or purchase a collar with the QR code on the band for about $30.

So now, all you need to do is download a QR Reader on your iPhone, other smartphone or tablet, and let the scanning and information travel adventures begin! Although QR codes may still seem alien to you, even after offered several realistic examples of use for you, have no fear. As QR codes become more popular, the public will catch on and a new trend will be born. Time to get your personalized QR code and now you can even get one with style!

Here is our QR code- your fun homework of the day is scanning our code and seeing where it takes you!

Morality Lost – Gun Leash for Dogs

When an individual or company racks their brains in order to come up with a new design concept when it comes to pet products, one would assume they would consider functionality, attractiveness, and a product that appeals to as many pet owners as possible in order to increase sales and consider your new concept a success.

Today, we ask ourselves and the greater community of pet owners, “What went wrong?” We have come across a new dog leash design concept that comes in the form of a realistic-type handgun as the handle, which naturally points down at your dog as you take them for a walk.

We find ourselves racking our own brains wondering who were the bright minds to consider this a moral and potentially successful design concept. What would children think and conceptualize as they hold onto a gun-handle as they walked their pets? There are so many different levels or wrong taking place here and anyone that considers themselves part of the pet community and industry has no place introducing icons of violence into the same arena where unconditional love and affection for our pets exists.

Would anyone in the child or infant care industry design a concept involving a gun whatsoever? Why should this be any different. After the creators of this gun-leash design, Art Lebedev Studios, got whip-lashed by negative feedback on Dog-Milk.com, they decided to change the hand-gun to a water-gun design. So now we are squirting our dog with a water gun pointed at their heads instead, unfortunately, as the original design remains immortalized in the true pet-lover’s psyche.

What is your opinion of this dog leash gun-design concept? Do you think we are taking this too personally and hard over at dealwagger.com? Feel free to leave a comment or feedback sharing your opinion and let’s work together as a community to make sure to prevent this concept’s lifespan and is put out of its misery before it affects our society in a real negative way.
