Wear A Riding Helmet, Not A Bicycle Helmet, On Horseback

Posted by on Feb 20, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Many people think that a helmet designed for bicycling is the same as one made for riding horses. This is the myth that can put you in danger. Here are three reasons not to wear a bicycle helmet when riding a horse.  Riding Helmets are Tested For Sharp Strikes Riding helmets and bicycle helmets are both put through a series of tests to make sure that they are safe and will protect the user in an accident. Both types of helmets are dropped from a high place onto a hard surface like concrete to simulate a fall or crash.  Riding helmets are also tested by being dropped on an anvil with a sharp point.

Posted by on Jan 30, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

You’ve got a family emergency and need to take the next flight out — but what about your pets? Many boarding facilities either can’t or won’t take pets last minute, and it can be very difficult to find someone to watch your pet for you. But there are still some options for those who have urgent plans ahead. 1. Your Animal Hospital Emergency veterinarians, such as Robert Irelan DVM, may also be able to provide emergency pet boarding. Though not all veterinarians advertise this, most of them are willing to board your pets, especially on an emergency basis. In fact, veterinarians may charge even lower rates than traditional boarding facilities. The only downside to using an animal hospital is that your pet may not get as much outside time as they would at a traditional boarding company.  2. Grooming Salons...

Choosing The Best Foods For Your Cats

Posted by on Jan 23, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Like humans, your cat’s body is sensitive to the food it eats. As long as it gets the minimum nutrition it needs to survive, your cat will do OK — but not thrive. Cheap, mass-produced cat foods contain a variety of fillers that your cat doesn’t get much benefit from. Your veterinary clinic sees many cats that are fat or have developed health problems from the additives. If you are concerned with what your cat eats, learn about their nutritional needs and the alternatives you have for feeding them a healthy diet. How Your Cat is Not Like You Cats evolved to be carnivores, meaning they are strictly meat eaters. You are an omnivore, which means you prefer a salad and side of vegetables with your meal. Eating other animals is the only way your cat is able to...
