Pet Home Remedies
I'm a big believer in using as natural of products as possible. You know, how we can use vinegar and things for cleaning, baking soda to brush your teeth and so on.
We have all kinds of home remedies for sickness or things like cuts (aloe, for example).
I used to have a book of home remedies for pets. I gave it to someone and now can't remember who, so I no longer have it. I must find another. Of course, one must always make sure to check with a vet before using anything not routine. But it's good to know these things in a pinch, and some pets have severe allergies that demand mild products.
Does anyone know of any natural products for pets? For example, the other day, a coworker mentioned he cut his dog's nail too short and it was bleeding. For those of you who've had that happen, it can be scary. I remember reading that you could use cornstarch or baking soda to help clot it up.
So share your tips and maybe we'll all learn something.
Picture today is of a cat named Jackson up for adoption at Cats Are Us. I brought a disc in to work with a bunch of photos on....or so I thought, but I did something wrong and there were no pictures, so I grabbed one we used for a Pet of the Week. I hope to iron out the photo posting bugs soon! So bear with me if I have photos of yours I haven't used yet.
In the future, please email me photos that are cropped small for upload, with the longest side about 500 pixels. I don't have photo shop on my computer or the one I'm using to blog, so I can't crop them myself. Thanks!
