Garbage gut <\/a>is caused by foods not normally entering the stomach causing illness, vomiting, and diarrhea, which could then lead to more serious problems like dehydration, loss of appetite, or pancreatitis<\/a>.<\/p>\r\n

Don\"t spend the holidays in a very costly visit to your veterinarian's office, for something that can easily<\/b> be prevented....<\/p>\r\n

Keep trash in an unreachable or closed container <\/b><\/p>\r\n

Be aware of what is going into your pets bellies<\/b> while we sit down for a holiday feast with friends n family.\r\nPets love to turn on the cute, and beg for food.<\/p>\r\n

Leave safe goodies out<\/b> for family and friends to reward your pet<\/b> during holiday get togethers.\r\nThere's nothing more loveable, and shows you care, than a pet\u00a0goody tray <\/a>or bag!<\/p>\r\n

We all love to reward pets for cute and good behavior, so it's only natural for guests to want to do the same.<\/p>\r\n

Yes dogs can really turn on the charm when it comes to food, but don't think cats are any different.\u00a0 <\/b>\r\nWhile most cats usually hide if it's loud or when guests arrive. There are some that like a lap and it doesn't matter who's. And they like snacks too!\r\nHave something available for guests to treat them if needed.\u00a0 Temptations<\/a> cat treats are always a favorite.\r\nAnd while treats are good, too much of anything is bad.\u00a0 So be sure to never feed too much.<\/p>\r\n

noticeably angry, but what about the many other expressions your cat makes.\r\n\r\nResearchers studied the facial\u00a0 muscle movements in over 50 cats recorded at a cat cafe in Los Angeles.\r\n\r\nThe face as we know, is widely used to assess emotional expression.\r\nThey reviewed hours of recorded video for almost a year, studying both male and female cat expressions.\r\n\r\nThe study showed that these cats displayed 276 facial expressions, showing their emotions.\r\nFrom welcoming other cats to the cafe, to playfulness, anger, being uncomfortable, and more.\r\n\r\nResearcher Brittany Florkiewicz told\u00a0The Washington Post <\/a>that the findings show that cats are more articulate and affectionate than previously thought.\r\n\r\nThe study Feline Faces was published in the journal\u00a0Behavioural Processes<\/a> in October.\r\n\r\nIn their conclusion they found that domestic cats \"display numerous affiliative behaviors that are crucial for managing social bonds.\"\r\n\r\nThough true cat lovers know there are common ways a cat communicates.\r\nIt can be a twitch of a tail, ears,\u00a0 moving their whiskers, or sometimes the most demanding meow.\r\n\r\nUltimate Pet Nutrition<\/a> talks about some of the common ways that cats communicate with their owners, and how to read them.\r\n\r\nIt seems cats have alot of personality, and we're finding out more and more, they are just as expressive as dogs.\r\n\r\nImage by: pixabay","post_title":"Cats have close to 300 facial expressions research study

for thought....\r\n\r\nPumpkins are said to be a kind of superfood, with great health benefits.for both you and your pet.\r\n\r\nYes, pumpkin, when given correctly, \u00a0is very safe for pets.\r\n\r\nThat being said, you also want to remember that whenever adding something new to your pets diet, it is always best to introduce it in small amounts.....<\/strong>\r\n\r\nTeam up with your veterinarian to know how much would be good for your pet, and if it's beneficial with any condition your pet may currently have. \u00a0Remember, a good balanced diet is key to good health. \u00a0Too much of anything is never good. \u00a0And\u00a0NEVER give leftover Halloween pumpkin that was left out, as it may contain mold and or bacteria.<\/strong> \u00a0Always give fresh cooked pumpkin or canned organic (with no sugar, spice, or additives) Canned is always easier with less mess, but not canned pumpkin pie filling as it may have added sweeteners.\r\n\r\nAside from adding moisture to a dry diet, pumpkins are a great source of vitamins and fiber that can be added to your pets diet<\/strong>.\r\n\r\nRich in vitamins A and C. \u00a0Vitamin A which is good for healthy vision, and Vitamin C for source of antioxidants and supporting the immune system. \u00a0It's also rich in Beta Carotene that can help aid in the prevention of disease and infections.\r\n\r\nPumpkin is a great source of fiber which can be beneficial in many ways.\r\n\r\nAdding pumpkin to a diet can help remedy diarrhea.<\/strong>\u00a0 Fiber we know, is good for the digestive system, and can help keep your pet regular, assisting with both diarrhea and constipation. \u00a0This can be very useful when getting rid of diarrhea. \u00a0You can also add a little yogurt if needed to give it a boost.\r\n\r\nThe Extra fiber in your pets diet can also help if needing to lose weight, \u00a0making them feel a little more full.\r\n\r\nPumpkin adds zinc for a healthier skin and coat, <\/strong>as well as potassium which is said to be good for electrolytes, muscular contraction, and overall muscular function. \u00a0Great for maintaining good health.\r\n\r\nA super food indeed!\r\n\r\nDid you know that even ground pumpkin seeds can be a natural remedy for parasites?<\/strong>\r\n\r\nCucurbitin, an amino acid found in pumpkin seeds is known to help with the deworming of tapeworms and roundworms in dogs and cats.\r\n\r\nPulling seeds from a pumpkin can be very sticky and messy. \u00a0After pulling them, you will need to dry them in the oven so they can easily be placed in a coffee grinder to be ground. \u00a0Seeds must be raw, no salt or additives. \u00a0Give 1-2 teaspoons of ground pumpkin seed per day until stools are clean. \u00a0For small dogs 1\/4 teaspoon per 10 lbs.\r\n\r\nAlways give roasted and unsalted seeds.\r\nAnd make sure to store your pumpkin seeds properly in a sealed bag and refrigerate, as they can go bad and become toxic.<\/strong>\r\n\r\nIf choosing to give whole seeds they must be given one at a time, or just a few in one sitting.\r\n\r\nIt is said the oil in pumpkin seeds, as well as antioxidants and fatty acids, can also help aid in urinary tract health. \u00a0By promoting urinary health and the prevention of urinary tract infections.\r\n\r\nNow that you know a little more about pumpkin, you might be wondering how you might go about introducing it to your dog or cat.<\/strong>\r\n\r\nSome pets may like the taste, others may not. \u00a0Try adding a spoonful or two to their regular meals, or mixed with canned food. \u00a0You might even be able to buy canned pet food that has pumpkin in it.\r\n\r\nOr if you're good at baking.... <\/strong>\r\n\r\nTry mixing it with peanut butter and roll out some \u00a0\u00a0peanut butter pumpkin cookies<\/a>.\r\n\r\nAnd just to keep things fun and festive, here are some great ideas to either spook up your front door, or just get a little critter creative with your pumpkin this

One such life-changing source that tends to be undervalued is the companionship of a cat.\u00a0<\/span>\r\n\r\nCats can play a far-reaching role in sobriety, touching on aspects from establishing routine to boosting self-esteem. FidoMingle<\/a> unearths the compelling mechanisms by which feline friends contribute positively to your road to recovery.\r\n\r\nCultivate Routine and Accountability<\/b>\r\n\r\nThe mere act of caring for a cat can bring structure to a life that might have been previously tumultuous due to addiction. Feeding, grooming, and providing medical care for a cat instills a sense of daily routine<\/a> and responsibility.\u00a0<\/span>\r\n\r\nThis can be especially helpful for those in the early stages of recovery when life feels the most unstable. For instance, automated feeding technology keeps you accountable for setting a feeding schedule, thereby reinforcing a structured lifestyle.\r\n\r\nUplift Mood and Alleviate Stress<\/b>\r\n\r\nCats have a calming presence that can dramatically elevate one\u2019s mood and diminish symptoms of anxiety or depression, which are often exacerbated by addiction. The act of petting a cat, for instance, releases endorphins and reduces stress hormones that serve as a natural antidepressant. Some addiction recovery centers even employ animal-assisted therapy, incorporating cats to help individuals manage stress and anxiety<\/a> during the rehab process.\r\n\r\nCounteract Relapse Triggers with Feline Support<\/b>\r\n\r\nA relapse is an unfortunate but often common event in the process of addiction recovery. When this occurs, seeking immediate inpatient treatment becomes essential for regaining control and stability.\u00a0<\/span>\r\n\r\nRehab centers across the US<\/a> offer various approaches to managing relapse and often accept health insurance from major providers to offset costs. Contact your insurance company to establish your coverage level before committing to a facility.\u00a0<\/span>\r\n\r\nWhen selecting a rehab center, important factors to consider include the facility's:\r\n
