First Aid for Your Pekingese

agony auntGreetings Fellow Pekies,

We trust that you have all had a great weekend and are not too cold. We would also like to wish you all a great week ahead.

TO all those who were affected by the Cape Storm and Knysna Fires, we hope that things are going better and that you are able to put your lives back together again very soon.

Today we are bringing you some great tips on how to deal with all those little mishaps that happen all too often with children and little dogs alike.

Just like children, your Pekingese could accidentally hurt itself or get ill, and there is nothing more empowering than being able to help your doggie in distress… and remain calm at the same time.

First, remember that all dogs, even your laid back Peke, will be curious and there will always be those that are overly curious and get into to trouble. It’s this curiosity that can end up causing injuries or sick dogs that get into things they aren’t supposed to.

agony auntGreetings Fellow Pekies,

Continuing with the trend of posting information about feeding your dog, having previously mentioned the various types of dog food that you can feed your puppy and your adult dog, including Commercial Dry Food, Canned Dog Food, a Home-Cooked Diet, Raw-Food Diets, and Vegetarian Dog-Food Diets.

We have so far posted about Cooked Dog Food and The Raw Dog Food Diet, as well as giving you a few Easy Recipes to make your own at home.

Today we will be sharing some important information regarding a Vegetarian Dog Food Diet; what to use in a Vegetarian Dog Food Diet, and how to prepare Vegetarian Meals for your Dog(s).

A Vegetarian Dog Food Diet is a controversial one, as many individuals believe that dogs need meat but vegetarians disagree.

In actual fact, your dog can live a long and healthy life on a strictly vegetarian diet as long as you ensure that he/she is receiving plenty of protein and all the essential vitamins and nutrients.

Be aware though that if you are introducing your dog to a vegetarian lifestyle, you need to do so gradually so that his/her system has time to adjust. As with any dietary changes, the key is to be observant; if diarrhoea, vomiting, a dull coat, or any other signs of illness occur, consult your vet immediately.

The mere subject of a Raw Food Diet is a controversial one that finds many passionate believers of the benefits of a raw food diet on one side of the fence and just as many who feel that it is not the best way to provide nourishment for their pets.

What is important to know though, is that feeding your beloved four-foot friend a Raw Food Diet is not just a matter of buying a kilo or two of ground meat and tossing it your pet’s dish; raw food must provide a balance of vitamins and minerals.

Cooking for one’s dogs is making a comeback. Some owners, scared by ongoing pet food contamination scandals as well as not trusting only dry food due to some manufacturers skimping on vital nutrients, minerals and vitamins, trust what they make themselves more than what is on the shelves.

Some owners want to avoid harmful additives; some need to cook for their dogs because of a health related issue, and others just like to treat their best furry friend to a homemade goodie every now and then.
