Will the pet need a yard or be able to have walks throughout the day?\u00a0 How able will the owner be, or how available the caregiver?\u00a0 Personality is also very important when choosing a pet.\u00a0 Some pets may want to focus on other things instead of the owner or be too active and playful. Its very important that personalities match. And best to introduce a new companion first, before making your decision final. Some pets are happy sticking to their owner, with the job of protecting them in exchange for loving words and pats, a small \"lap dog\" perhaps.\u00a0 Or if you're looking for a companion that's more low key, loves a blanket, and grooms itself...a\u00a0 cat would be ideal!\r\n\r\nAdopting a pet not only helps seniors mentally and physically, it is also very helpful to senior dogs and cats so desperate to find homes.\r\nThat's right, pets are not only just good company, they also have the amazing ability to heal.\u00a0They can relieve stress<\/a>\r\nfight depression,\u00a0 and even get someone more active.

But depending on the breed and health of the dog, the amount of shedding may vary.\r\n\r\nMost dogs during the winter will develop a thick winter coat and start shedding it as of Spring.\u00a0 Some dogs may shed throughout the year.\r\n\r\nSo how do you stay ahead of this dreadful cycle?\r\n\r\nYou might be thinking of shaving the coat, but shaving a dog during the hotter months isn't always the answer.\r\n\r\nAnd this could could cause problems for the skin or hair of a dog with a \"double coat.\"<\/a>\r\n\r\nSome dogs like golden retrievers, or shelties have both an undercoat and guard hairs. An undercoat of thick hairs to protect the skin from both hot and cold temperatures, and a top coat of guard hairs to repel moisture and debris.\r\n\r\nShaving could cause both to grow back tangled and matted, or with a sticky feeling preventing the air from circulating underneath to keep your pet cool.\u00a0 Having the hair matted up can create hot spots, or draw stickers from the grass or brush into the hair.\r\n\r\nSo no matter how you look at it, or try to get around it, brushing your dog is usually the best answer. Knowing the right tool to use when\u00a0brushing your dog<\/a> is so important, along with how often.\r\n\r\nRoutine baths<\/a>, and\u00a0 flea prevention<\/a> to prevent scratching, among other things can all help slow down the process....\r\n\r\nGet your veterinarian involved. Ask about dietary supplements like omega 3 capsules or powders.\r\nOr try more natural foods... Ask your vet about adding fish to their diet or\u00a0olive oil<\/a> to increase omega-3 fatty acids and help moisturize their skin and coat.\r\n\r\nIt's always important to get your veterinarian involved when adding something new to your pets diet. Especially when its due to changes in your pets appearance or activity.\u00a0 Some changes like excessive shedding could be a sign of health problems.\r\n\r\nOnce you've done your research, put together a routine for both you and your pet. Having this become a part of your daily, weekly, or monthly routine should make it easier.\r\n\r\nAnd having a well groomed pet not only keeps your pet healthy and happy, but helps maintain a clean home<\/a>.","post_title":"Staying Ahead Of The Shed During Spring And Summer Months.","post_excerpt":"","post_status":"publish","comment_status":"open","ping_status":"open","post_password":"","post_name":"staying-ahead-of-the-shed-during-spring-and-summer-months","to_ping":"","pinged":"","post_modified":"2024-03-03 07:17:35","post_modified_gmt":"2024-03-03 15:17:35","post_content_filtered":"","post_parent":0,"guid":"https:\/\/fidomingle.com\/?p=5554","menu_order":0,"post_type":"post","post_mime_type":"","comment_count":"0","filter":"raw"},{"ID":8015,"post_author":"1","post_date":"2024-02-25 07:00:04","post_date_gmt":"2024-02-25 15:00:04","post_content":"I scream, you scream,\r\nthe dogs scream for...

Your life should be spent engaged in doing the things you are passionate about, and for many, that passion is their love of animals. If you\u2019ve been thinking about starting your own pet care-based business but don\u2019t know where to start, check out this guide should help get you and your business on the way to success and fulfillment.\r\n\r\n1. Decide What Business Is Best for You\r\n\r\nA variety of options are available for those looking to start a business that benefits pets. If you want a more traditional store, you could sell pet products in person or online.\r\n\r\nIf you like to spend time directly with animals, you might enjoy pet grooming or sitting. Do you love being active outdoors? \u00a0A dog walking business might be right for you. If you thrive on having no two days look alike, you could also offer a full-service pet care shop where potential clients can choose from a number of possibilities, allowing you to take.\r\n\r\nFiguring out what is best for you and what will be most lucrative may take time, so give yourself space to grow and consider using a \u201cdoing business as\u201d or DBA name for your company. With a California DBA<\/a>, it allows you to branch out to new services, allowing you the freedom to experiment as needed.\r\n\r\n2. Make It Legitimate\r\n\r\nThe Small Business administration recommends 10 steps<\/a> you should follow to get your business up and running. Among the most important are writing your business plan, obtaining funding, registering your business, getting tax IDs, and applying for any required licenses and permits.\r\n\r\nA business plan is your vision for how your company will run, including day-to-day operations and financial strategies and goals. You can design your own or follow a template<\/a> to help guide you through the process. While there are more nontraditional means of funding businesses popping up all the time, most businesses receive their funding<\/a> from business loans or grants, investors, and personal funding from savings or family and friends.\r\n\r\nMany small businesses choose to register as a limited liability company or LLC, but if you\u2019re working on your own, you may choose to operate a sole proprietorship. To get your business tax certificate, you\u2019ll have to apply. Business laws vary between areas, including required licenses and permits, so check yours to make sure you follow the necessary procedures<\/a>.\r\n\r\n3. Master Marketing\r\n\r\nEven if you have the best idea, product, or service in the world, if you can\u2019t reach the right people, you\u2019ll never be able to experience the growth you need to succeed. Marketing is key to getting your message to the people who most need to hear it.\r\n\r\nDigital marketing is popular today because customers are most easily found and consumer behaviors are most easily monitored online. Not only can you reach an infinitely higher number of potential customers on the internet than you could in person or through traditional means such as TV or radio commercials, digital marketing gives you the ability to appeal specifically to those who might be a good fit for your business, meaning you get more bang for your buck.\r\n\r\nDon\u2019t spend your life neglecting your passions. Embrace your love of animals and determine a way to turn that love into a career. Both you and all the animals whose lives you touch will be better for it.\r\n\r\nGuest article by Cindy Aldridge\r\n\r\nImage via Pexels","post_title":"3 Tips for Turning Your Love of Animals Into Your Career","post_excerpt":"","post_status":"publish","comment_status":"open","ping_status":"open","post_password":"","post_name":"3-tips-for-turning-your-love-of-animals-into-your-career","to_ping":"","pinged":"","post_modified":"2024-01-27 08:37:01","post_modified_gmt":"2024-01-27 16:37:01","post_content_filtered":"","post_parent":0,"guid":"https:\/\/fidomingle.com\/?p=7296","menu_order":0,"post_type":"post","post_mime_type":"","comment_count":"0","filter":"raw"}],"next_page_url":null,"prev_page_url":"https:\/\/fidomingle.com\/apis\/post_apis.php?query=posts&page="}}
