RapidBath Coupons - The Pet Grooming System- CLICK HERE!




"Your pet can soon be enjoying the relaxing massage the RapidBath™ system provides while receiving a thorough, deep down cleaning" - claims the makers of this revolutionary new system

With experience, most pet owners find that they can completely bathe their pets in under 3 minutes! We tried it and it took us 8 minutes on a 45 lb. dog - but he DID like it.

The amount of time it takes will vary based on the size of the animal, coat thickness and length, and dirtiness level.

Here are the technical details on this new device:

While the device is designed to work either inside or out, your pet will enjoy the experience even more when warm water can be used for bathing.

• You will need to use a water source that has a flow rate that exceeds 3 gallons per minute.

The vast majority of homes will meet this requirement both in the shower and at an outside water faucet. Building codes limit the amount of water pressure to sinks; the RapidBath unit is not designed for use at the sink.

RapidBath installation:

To use the RapidBath™ system outside, attach the RapidBath™ unit directly to the end of a garden hose 50 feet or shorter. The HydroSurge® RapidBath™ hose can be used in place of a garden hose.

Select the most appropriate shampoo formulation based on your animal’s skin and coat condition. Insert the cartridge by inserting the cartridge opening onto the shampoo draw tube. Each shampoo cartridge is designed to provide at least 5 minutes of shampoo, or enough to bathe the standard dog 2 times.

Variability in water pressure may result in substantially longer shampoo draw periods.

Bathing instructions:
1. Let your pet see and sniff the Rapid Bath unit first. This will alleviate some of the anxiety they may be feeling.

2. With the system set on slow rinse, aim the water spray behind, and away from your pet. This gives theman opportunity to get used to the sound of spraying water. Test the water temperate of the water to ensure it is a relaxing, warm temperature. Be careful to not use hot water. Now move the setting to fast rinse.

3. Move the devise setting to “bathe” and within seconds, the high quality RapidBath™ shampoo will be drawn into the oxygenated water mix. Move your hand forward until the pet’s rear area is getting wet. Although your pet may jump at first, soon it will be enjoying the relaxing massaging action.

4. Slowly move the spray pattern across the top of your pet from the tail to the neck area. Angle the spray sothat it is at a 45 degree angle to lift and penetrate the hair. This will ensure a thorough cleaning down to the skin.

5. Continue the slow, side to side motion from the top of the animal down each side.
6. Next, clean each of the legs, underside, paws, and under tail area. Finally, you have a way to effectively clean all those hard to reach areas!
7. When finished bathing, set the RapidBath™ system to the HIGH rinse setting and repeat steps 4-6. Although no shampoo will be coming from the unit, your pet will continue to enjoy a relaxing water massageand enjoy the health benefits of getting oxygenated water right down to the skin. All RapidBath™ shampoo products are formulated to be clean rinsing and leave no shampoo residue which can dry the skin and coat.

For bathing an animal’s face:
8. When face bathing is required, it is recommended that you wet the face using the LOW rinse setting on your RapidBath™ unit, ensuring that you do not spray the water directly at the eyes, ears, nose, or mouth of the animal, and that no water enters the ear canal.
9. Rub a small amount of tearless, unscented shampoo into your hands and hand bathe your pet’s face just as you would your own.
10. Rinse using the RapidBath™ unit on the LOW setting just as you did in step 8.

Safe Ice Melter for Pets - A Must Have- CLICK HERE!





Depending on what part of the US you live in, it is getting to that time of year that driveway's freeze over and it is a pain in the **** to take the dog out. It's cold here in the Northeast and likewise in the Northwest also.
Making sure that your pet is safe in the winter is important and I'll be talking about that in detail in my next blog entry, but I wanted to share a quick story with you that should open your eyes to what ice can really do to your pet dog.
Last winter we let our 4 year old dog outside when it was cold and icy. Of course, being the good pet owners that we are, he was only out there about 10 minutes, but we heard a crash and whimpering.
We still are not exactly sure what happened, but the vet said that it was the equivalent of a torn ACL in a human. The poor dog slipped on the ice and ripped his leg up.
Nine months later and about 2,000 in Vet bills, our dog is doing fine. But I am sure that he suffered alot of pain that could have been avoided. Please buy Ice Melter for your pets (dogs in particular ) this winter.
The Safe Pet Ice Melter pictured above has the aded benefit of being safe for pets. It is a proven ice melter that’s safe for pets. For use on sidewalks, driveways, and parking areas. Non-corrosive. Environmentally friendly. Prevents ice and snow from re-bonding.
The product does not contain salt of any kind.
Welcome to the winter!

GregRobert Pet Supplies www.pet-dog-cat-supply-store.com and www.Petfinder.com are celebrating November as Adopt-a-Senior-Pet Month.

“Think of a pet that is already trained and doesn't chew or scratch everything in sight--a pet who will love you unconditionally,” said Kim Saunders, Petfinder.com's Director of Public Relations. “That's what you get when you adopt a senior pet.”

Some people worry that a senior pet comes with problems, but according to Hazel Blumberg-McKee of Tallahassee, FL, there are no disadvantages. “In most cases they've had a home and they want one again.” Senior Pet products including: Glucosamine & Joint Care for Dogs at GregRoberts.

She adopted eight-and-a-half-year old Sadie, and has never regretted it. “An older animal is easier to deal with. And Sadie is still playful. She plays fetch and gallops all over the place.”
At animal shelters and rescue groups everywhere, there are loving, healthy senior pets like Sadie, looking for that one special home to cherish them for the rest of their life, and they don't ask for much: just a warm place to sleep, good meals and plenty of love.

During Adopt-a-Senior-Pet Month, take the opportunity to get acquainted with the older pets available at PetFinder. Visit PetFinder online at www.petfinder.com

MRSA in Dogs and Cats - Some Precautions- CLICK HERE!




Some veterinarians are documenting more and more cases of drug-resistant staph infections in dogs and cats, but say there is no reason for alarm among pet owners if they follow measures of simple hygiene.

There are more then 500 different things that can cause your dog to be itchy. If your dog is scratching all the time it is important to find out what is causing the itch.

Popular Dog Anti Itch and Skin Care Products
Pet Relief
Cut-Heal
Dermasol
Sulfodene

My sister-in-law, a vet in Florida is treating an increasing number of animals with skin eruptions infected with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus - MRSA. The cases seem to have increased in recent months.

She hasn't had a case in a cat yet but I am sure it's just a matter of time.

Treatment can prove so difficult in some instances that pets have to be hospitalized, occasionally for weeks, and infused with intravenous antibiotics, which carry side effects.

This is what is called reverse zoonosis, the organism is moving from people to animals. Once animals colonize it the medical community doesn't know how long they maintain it.

Because MRSA is so widespread it has been cultured in a variety of animals, including pigs and horses.

If an owner transmits the bacteria to a pet through close contact, the microbes may colonize in the animal's nose, paving the way for MRSA to be passed again to people. A colonized animal may be a carrier yet remain in good health - and the same goes for humans

Now that MRSA is no longer an organism found only in hospitals, experts say it is likely that it will be seen more frequently in domestic animals.

Pets increasingly are being used as companions in nursing homes and hospices where the animals can become colonized with MRSA.

SOME PRECAUTIONS
Don't kiss your pet
Don't let your pet lick you in the face
Keep your pet clean and healthy

Pet Adoption - Save a Pet- CLICK HERE!




The Problem of Unwanted Pets

There are many reason why pets are given up to a local animal shelter or left for stray. Fortunately there are many reason to adapt and ways to limit unwanted pets. The statistics behind this problem indicate that:

About 60% of households in the U.S. have a pet. 60 million dogs and 75 million cats are owned as pets. Most pets are obtained at low/no cost through acquaintances and family members. Pets obtained in this manner may not be spayed/neutered. In many cases basic pet ownership responsibilities are not discussed. These kind of numbers lead to a potential issue if pets are not contained or spayed/neutered relative to unwanted breeding. Additionally, many are surprised by the extent of the responsibilities associated with pet ownership. Some of these pets are given up to shelters or become strays. In fact, 20% of those who leave a pet at a shelter initially adopted the pet from a shelter. Those people at least had some initial education on pet ownership responsibilities. One can surmise as to the extent of the issue with those who have not been formally introduced to pet ownership issues prior to taking in a pet. The unfortunate result is that each year 4 million dogs are killed.

What can we do to help this problem?

Take responsibility! - Spay/neuter your pet

At least 20% of cats are acquired as strays. The cost of spaying or neutering a pet is less than the cost of raising puppies or kittens for one year. The average cost of basic food, supplies, medical care and training for a dog or cat is $400 to $700 annually. It is much cheaper to attack the issue responsibly by spaying or neutering your pet before they cause or experience an unwanted pregnancy.

Understand what to expect as a pet owner before acquiring a pet

Don't be surprised about the restrictions and tasks involved with pet ownership. Pet are wonderful companions that can show us love. But as with anything worthwhile, there are responsibilities and time that we must give in order to receive that desired companionship. If you have not owned a pet before I can guarantee you will be surprised by the extent of what is required in pet ownership. Educate yourself before taking on a pet. The Humane Society of the United States have an article on pet adoption to help. Search the Internet for other articles on the subject. It really only takes a few minutes of your time to become informed. You can then decide if pet ownership is right for you at that particular time.

Keep your pet properly contained

If your pet is not spayed or neutered than you need to keep them away from other pets or strays. There are different ways to accomplish this but you need to make it simple on yourself to assure success. Pets that are outside can be contained through tieouts and runners, electric fences or traditional backyard fencing. If you do not have traditional fencing I have found electric fences to be convenient and effective. They also now make electric fences for cats. Containment is more difficult for a cat that is allowed outdoors. In this case, if an electric fence is not used than spaying/neutering is the only other alternative.


If you decide pet ownership is for you - Adopt a Pet

Stray/unwanted pets are euthanized if not adopted. Therefore you can save a life and get a companion all at one time. There is a vast selection such as purebreds , mixed breeds and mature pets that you can select from at your local animal shelter. Even pets like rabbits are available. The following link gives further information on this :

http://www.hsus.org/pets/pet_adoption_information/.

Petfinders.com is a organization that tries to place unwanted pets from various shelters. They provide information on pet ownership and adopting to help the potential owner understand the issues we discuss above and prepare for a new arrival. There is a search mechanism to locate a pet. We obtained our dog through this organization and were very happy with the process and result.

Another website called dogsindanger.com is dedicated to listing pets at shelters that need adoption. They give information on the pet and indicate how much time the pet has before it will be destroyed - an unfortunate reality and why I took the time to write this!!! You can search for pets based on criteria.

Hopefully this information give you a start in the understanding the reasons behind the need for pet adoption and what we can all do to assist in the issue.

Stop Animal Cruelty - Spread Love- CLICK HERE!




All the news about Michael Vick these days brings new awareness to a problem that doesn't seem to go away - Animal Cruelty.

It breaks my heart when I hear about pet dogs, pet rabbits or pet cats being mutiliated by thier owners, neighbors or passer-byers.

How could you hurt a being that gives you devoted love all the time? I did a quick search on Google News this morning and pages and pages of news on animal cruelty came up - here are a few headlines:
  • Queens man charged with beating neighbor's dog
  • Hemet Man Accused Of Intentionally Running Over Dog
  • Teen Gets Jail for Mutilating Autistic Boy's Pet Tortoise
  • Man fined for animal cruelty
  • Man accused of backing into child, purposely running over dog
  • Man Accused Of Killing Dog On Purpose Out On Bail
  • Former police officer confesses to killing dog
The worst part is there are connections between animal abusers and murders. The FBI considers a history of animal abuse to be a significant part of offender profiling; they see a clear relationship between animal abuse by young people and the pathway to more serious crimes, including murder.

Abusing animals often provides an initial kick or practice before the aggressor moves on to a human target. Shooting pigeons, torturing cats or poking out a rabbit's eyes may be a hideous form of rehearsal for the future. The encouraging thing is that this behavior can be altered if it is detected and treated early.

Please, please take the time to report Animal Cruelty - it could save someone's life one day.

www.Rabbit.org is an organization dedicated to stopping cruelty to house rabbits. For all of your rabbit supplies - visit www.RabbitMart.com

Fine Watches / Custom Watches for Gifts- CLICK HERE!




I am excited and I have to share....

This is a Christmas gift idea for someone special and I hope that my husband reads this.

This is the second time that I looked at the Personalized Swiss Watch website and the first time I couldn't figure it out. Hard to use -- but they have an unbelievable product.

When you click to the website: Gemstone Watches, the flash immediately comes up. Choose (about 2/3rds down the page) "Create a Lady's Watch" ... or if you are buying for a man, choose "Create a Man's Watch".

This will take you into an interactive watch creation site (open's a new window).

AN IMPORTANT NOTE HERE. These are very high quality watches- top of the line. Depending on your budget, you may want to start the design process with one of the lower cost watches .. because as you go through the design process, you can add the gemstones and upgrades that you want.

121TIME.com - Custom Swiss Timepieces

I created the most beautiful watch and it was under $1000.00 when I was done. It had 12 pink diamonds and of course it had swiss watch quality.

I made the gems pink around the face of the watch and added a beautiful white leather band. The face was pearl and had a rather large face.

On the back, I engraved (to myself), "I Love you - After 22 years of marraige and 5 kids, you are still the love of my life".

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh... Gotta see this - it might be right for your wife this year.

Back to business.

Link Exchanges Need Not Apply- CLICK HERE!




.. and payment not allowed

About once a week, I get an email from a concerned Petazon member asking us why everything is free in our directory. Practically the entire Internet population expects to either:

  1. Pay for a link to thier website or
  2. Participate in a Link Exchange

AND

  1. Pay for a Press Release distribution

Ever since it was publicly known that Google's ranking algorithm is highly dependant on incoming links from relevant sites, huge link exchange schemes came into play and cheapened what a link really meant. In the early days of the Internet, a link meant "I like you and find you interesting". Now a link means "You have good page rank".

Petazon's goal is to provide a pet directory that "always and forever more" allows big pet companies and small companies a free directory that is well trafficed by Pet enthusiasts.

Help us share this vision by telling every pet business owner about our free pet directory.

We often hear mumbling about the Google Ads that are on the Petazon directory. These ads are not meant to compete for your business - but they do offer a small revenue stream for the Pet directory while we are growing it.

From cat breeders to dog trainers to chain pet stores - the Petazon Directory is free.

I encourage you to submit your Pet Press Release for Free also: http://www.petazon.com/submitpressrelease.php

Yes .. we said free - enjoy.

I'd like to see some success stories, complaints and comments regarding our directory by replying to this post. (You can comment anonymously!)

The pet industry is our passion and we hope you use our directory to bring exposure to your business. Good luck during the upcoming Holiday season -
