The Right Insurance Policies for your Pets

No doubt that pets are vulnerable to several kinds of diseases, as a matter of fact the cause of treatment have been steadily increasing all the time. When your pets are insured properly, the cost related to its medication can be met without any problems with the expenses.  Pet insurance is attainable from different sources with various coverage plans and options.

Pet insurance can be used for injury treatment and sickness; other plans that come under the category of deluxe are intended to cover all types of illness/sickness.  Some pet insurance plans offer regular examinations of the pets. Probably, there are the reasons why pet insurance plans have become popular to the point that they cover acupuncture treatment, dental care and chiropractic care for the pets. A lot of the insurance companies cover cats and dogs under the category of pet insurance plans.

Today, some companies are also offering pet insurance coverage for exotic pets. When insuring pets like parrots, iguana or potbellied pigs suitable plans should be chosen to properly address the needs of your pets. Pet insurance policies are very similar to the health insurance plans that we humans have. There are exceptions for preexisting illness, limits for coverage, co pays, deductibles etc.

Occasionally, pet insurance plans dictate the owners of the pet to pay the care bills and veterinary fees before receiving any refund. It is recommendable to avoid insurance companies that have limited benefits of the insurance plans. Remember that when a price is set for a specific maximum level, the coverage policy will only allow the owner to spend till the set coverage regardless of the monetary value paid towards the medical expenses. This plan entitles the owner with very low deductibles, but demands high co-pay, which will be more expensive in the long run.

Insurance source:

The best way for anybody to get information about pet insurance is from the his/her veterinarians. Either they have the recommended right plan for the pet owner.  The internet can be an outlet of good information also, one thing that you should remember when researching is the policy coverage of the insurance (exclusion terms and conditions), benefits out of the insurance policy, financial standing, company reputation, history of disturbing money, processing claims and etc.

There should not be any fixed benefit period for your insurance policy as it may have a low and high deductible Co pay costs, which will not be appropriate for the pet owner. The policies should cover the MRI, X-rays, Cat scans, cancer treatments, specialists, hospitalizations, cost of medicines and any diagnostic testing.


Training The Dog To Come When It Is Called

Dogs love to go around stuffs that they find very interesting and more often than not, they wander farther away from you without minding their surroundings. You may hate to admit it, but surely you don’t want to be mortified in front of your friends or to the public if your dog responds only with a blank stare and much worse, if he pays no heed to your command

Training dogs about the come command or recall (as what most trainers call it) is very important. Although some dogs seem to be naturally inclined on this behavior, teaching this can be a tough job to an owner for most dogs. But at some point in time, the benefits will make it well worth the investment especially in matters of your dog’s safety. It will also be very reassuring in your part knowing that he readily responds when you call him. It is also an important skill for dogs that work as they must be at all times under total control, whether they are on leash or not.

How do you go about this?

You have to put in mind one big thing about dog training – Always assimilate fun and play in every training session, probably a few minutes before starting. It can do amazing things for the mindset of the dog and the owner alike. Furthermore, finishing the session with a moment of play time is a wonderful positive technique to end the lesson. This also helps the dog correlate obedience training with fun and not just a hard slog.

Leash Training Your Dog: The command to come and to stay when called are usually combined in obedience training, and they do go inherently together. Begin with the dog on a loose leash, ask the dog to sit and then gradually move away. If the dog starts to get up and adhere to you, go back to him and ask him to sit again. Continue the procedure until you can reach the end of the leash without the dog getting up

After you can reach the end of the leash consistently, try releasing the leash completely. It would be very much desirable that this will be done in a fenced yard. You can then start introducing him the recall command the moment the dog has perfected the stay command.

Start by taking the leash, and with the dog on the other end of the leash, say “come here” or “come”. Oftentimes, it is necessary to use an enticement when teaching this command. It can be any noticeable item that can catch his attention. This then serves as an excellent initial strategy for the on mastering the command. Repeat the process till the dog will unfailingly perform the commands. When the whole process is consistently achieved, gradually start presenting the concept when the dog is unleashed. Keep in mind that these training sessions must take place in a controlled and protected environment like a fenced yard.

An obedient, well-trained dog should give an immediate response to its owner regardless to where he is and what disruptions may happen. And by that, it would be crucial to challenge the dog with distractions of your own.

Invite a neighbor, preferably one who has a dog of his own to your house. Have him and the dog stand outside the fenced in area and repeat the recall command exercise with your dog unleashed. If the other dog becomes a disruption to him, leash him up and repeat the process. The ultimate aim here is to have your dog constantly pay attention to your instructions, regardless of whatever distraction that may occur.


5 Useful Tips in Getting Your Dog Toilet Trained

wordpress dogGetting a new puppy is one of the toughest jobs that a family faces especially when this deviate the norms inside your house.  This eventually means that you have to keep your dog outside so that he will not use your home and furnishings as a toilet. Many people think that getting doggy toilet trained is a tough task, but that doesn’t suppose to be.  Having the information is the best way you can do to empower yourself in house training, consider yourself successful whenever you are able to teach your dog to go to the bathroom where you want him to go.

The Advantages of Using a Crate

You have to make sure there is a sufficient area in the crate for your pup to turn around, but don’t leave so much space that he will be able to poop and lie down far away from it.  A lot of dog owners view a crate as punishment or a jail cell, but your dog will enjoy having his own space where he can escape from the bustle and hustle of the household for some quiet time.  You have to make the crate for your dog a happy place and don’t use it for punishment, feed your dog in the crate, or while he is in there, give him some treats. Place a favorite toy in there with him; put blankets and he will have a cliquey den to escape to what on earth he feels the need.

Keep Your Eyes Peeled

It is important to keep an eye on your puppy in training him to properly potty. Whenever you see that he is circling, sniffing, or beginning to squat, instantaneously take him outside where you want him to go and see if he eliminates. If he does, praise him extravagantly. An upright idea is to have a cue, such as “faster” so that your puppy recognizes what you want him to do. When he is going to the lavatory recap the cue and then give your dog lots of commendation for a job well done.

When to House Train

You can toilet trained your dog at any age, but the best age to begin is between seven and eleven weeks old. If you are planning to set up a house-training before long he will get the right idea of where to do his business. A crate can be a great tool for toilet training. It keeps him restricted when there is no command and most dogs learn swiftly that if they make in their crate they will have to sit in it. Most dogs are impartially hygienic and won’t enjoy having to sit in dog urine or potty.

Don’t Get Discouraged

There are times when you start housetraining that you feel your puppy is just not getting it. He may have misfortunes in the house as well on occasion. There is no need to be disheartened. If you stick to your mundane, make frequent excursions to his outdoor bathroom, in no time your pup will be housebroken. A new good idea is to use the similar door all the time when you are taking him out so that when he has to go. Once this happens, you can say bravo and know that your pup truly is beginning to recognize that going to the bathroom in the house is a no-no.

Have a Schedule

Feeding and watering your dog on a regular program will make housebreaking that much easier. Puppies are like babies and they flourish on a routine. Try to take the dog out around the same time every day so they will be able to change their bodily functions. The main thing you should do in the daybreak is take the pup from the crate and don’t let him touch the ground. Take your pup out at least every two hours, after drinking or eating and particularly after play. Before you know it, your pup will be letting you know when the time to go out and do his business.

My dog and I

This may be a little bit mushy, but I just want to let everyone know, I am obsessed with my dog.

10580139_681268178633500_7656090598916776834_nI am not that kind of knitting clothes for my dog or the one who usually posts pictures on Facebook when out with my dog (sometimes I do), but I maybe one of those few people who’s willing to give everything, even my life, for my dog.

Life is really good once you have a dog to come home to. Especially the day where you think like everything is falling apart or the world has turned its back on you. Fear not, dogs can be there for you.

Anyway, I would like to share to you some of the things why I love my dog so much.

  1. He was my first

I think you can still remember your first kiss, boyfriend, girlfriend, or best friend while you were still young. As a kid, I was really fond of dogs. My parents are trying all their best to dog-block me.  Meshach, also known as munchky, is now 5 yrs. Old. He was my first dog.

  1. He is my clown

People often see clowns only on children parties, right? But as for me, I see a clown every day. When I arrive at home from work, I see him running around the apartment with my underwear on his neck.
His “moves like jagger” never fail to make me smile whenever I tell him we go for a walk. He jumps around the sofa, study table, even on my computer table all day long. I usually feed him outside but there was one time, he was pulling with him a big bone and he hid it under the bed. (maybe he was saving it for tomorrow or something). What a very smart dog. I couldn’t imagine life without him. Or maybe I could, I think it would be very dull and lame.

  1. He does only one trick, but It’s the best!

Does your dog take a poop inside your house? Well mine doesn’t. He is technically not so good with playing catch or fetch. Does not even know how to play dead or roll over. But when it comes to taking poop outside his system, he only takes it out in only one place, his POOP box. I find him rushing and running around the apartment, probably crying. I was wondering why. Then I found out he was about to go and he can’t find his POOP b ox. He just wasn’t able to remember we left it outside since he had to take a poo right after we had a walk.

  1. He likes what I want him to wear

Some of my friends who have dogs usually find it hard to let their dog wear a shirt. They consume a lot of time chasing the dog or when they get the dog to wear it, after few minutes their dog tries to remove it out, or bite, or roll over in the dirt. As for me, I just ask him “what do you want to wear Meshach? This one or this one?” Then it’s all done.


In 2009, a Filipino policeman discovered an Askal (“askal” is a Tagalog-derived portmanteau of asong kalye, many have no owners, but some locals keep them as pets one lives in the streets) hiding in a locked shed. The dog was severely filthy, malnourished and harshly abused.

The kind policeman took him to the nearest pet sanctuary (Millama Wildlife Sanctuary), a place founded and run by PETA (an association promulgated to defend the rights of those brutally abused animals like dogs) which has one objective that is to care for sick and injured animals.  And so an incident of fate takes place that somehow changes the life of not only a dog and a person, but hundreds of other animals as well.

“When I first met Josh, you could tell he had been psychologically devastated but was a gentle dog by nature,” Rinandy said. “And soon, he began nurturing the other animals.” This trait of Josh makes him exceptional among the other dogs, this makes him extraordinary and that separates him from the rest of other dogs in the shelter.

Josh became well known for acting  motherly over the years to cats, puppies, goats cubs,  guinea pigs, chicks,  rabbits —and one of her favorites, a goose. Who would think that a male Askal will do this to the rest of the animals in that shelter? His act of mutual concern is unbelievable and something that human brain can’t fathom, not unless if you have the heart that sees what’s unseen by our naked eyes, I think it’s called heart felt preposition that intertwine knowledge to psychomotor predicaments of one’s heart and soul, and that’s something that Josh shows to the rest of the animals in that shelter.

“There are things that only a mother can provide, and Josh provided it,” said Rinandy.

Josh passed away in the summer of 2012, an event marked as a holiday by the organization in honor of his contribution to the sanctuary, which continues to care —if not with Josh’s personal style—for animals in need.

“His passing was so sad,” said Rinandy. “But he was a legendary animal, and his legacy continues.”

Stop! Animals are not sex toys!

Why is this important?


Few days ago I was checking out, as usual, news about dogs and animals in general. And that’s when I found out that, in Denmark, sex with animals is for sale. Yes, you got it right: people in Denmark can pay in order to have sex with animals. And their government is simply saying “it’s a cultural thing”.

I became extremely disgusted and angry.

But then I thought: how can zoophilia be legal in a first world country like Denmark? Shouldn’t this be illegal worldwide?

So I take a trip to Wikipedia, where I found this: 13 countries are keeping zoophilia completely legal.

These countries are:

  • Brazil
  • Cambodia
  • Denmark
  • Finland
  • Hungary
  • Italy
  • Japan
  • Mexico
  • Philippines
  • Portugal
  • Romania
  • Russia
  • Thailand

Even in the USA there are 18 states that allow zoophilia. Those states are:

  • Alabama
  • American Samoa
  • District of Columbia
  • Guam
  • Hawaii
  • Kentucky
  • Montana
  • Nevada
  • New Hampshire
  • New Jersey
  • New Mexico
  • Northern Marianas Islands
  • Ohio
  • Texas
  • Vermont
  • Virginia
  • West Virginia
  • Wyoming

This is a disgusting, unnatural and disgusting perversion. And it’s also extremely dangerous ( for both the animal and the “human” who’s practicing it ). There are ton’s of studies that prove that sex with animals:

* doubles the chances to get penile cancer and triple the chances to get vaginal cancer;
* over 12 different STD’s can be easily transmitted from animal to humans ( and, those STD’s, will easily spread between humans )
* physical harm ( because animals are living creatures that can react to sexual violence ) – things like bites, cuts, stomps, etc

What can you do, together with us, about it?

After we will reach our first goal of 150,000 signatures, we will raise a massive media storm and bring this matter at the attention. And we will go on to put under pressure countries that keep bestiality legal until they take action to stop it once and for all.

Sugar Diabetes for Canines

Diabetes mellitus, most commonly known as sugar diabetes, is a common disease in dogs. Golden Retrievers, German Shepherd Dogs, Miniature Schnauzers, Keeshonden, and Poodles have the highest incidence, but all breeds can be affected. Females with the disease outnumber males by three to one. The average age of onset is six to nine years.

(Check out The Rise of Demand for Pet Insurance)

Diabetes is a result of inadequate production of insulin by the islet cells in the pancreas. There may be a genetic predisposition for this in some dogs. Islet cell destruction also occurs in some cases of pancreatitis. Insulin enables glucose to pass into cells, where it is metabolized to produce energy for metabolism. Insulin deficiency results in hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) and glycosuria (high urine sugar).

Glucose in the urine causes the diabetic animal to excrete large volumes of urine. In turn, this creates dehydration and the urge to drink large amounts of water. Initially, dogs that do not metabolize enough sugar have an increase in appetite and a desire to consume more food. Later, with the effects of malnourishment, the appetite drops.

Treating a diabetic dog.

The signs of early diabetes are frequent urination, drinking lots of water, a large appetite, and unexplained loss of weight. The laboratory findings are high glucose levels in the blood and urine. In more advanced cases there is lethargy, loss of appetite, vomiting, dehydration, weakness, and coma. Cataracts are common in diabetic dogs. Ultimately, diabetes is a disease that affects all organs. Diabetic dogs will have enlarged livers, be susceptible to infections, and often develop neurological problems if not treated.
