The PetZip Monogram Stroller

The PetZip Monogram stroller is at the top of the list of trendy pet accessories for design conscious pet owners. I think the dog bone, treat and bowl pattern that adorns the durable tan fabric is a key feature. Or perhaps you prefer the black background with the paws on it.monogramjoggerA701-2

It might be the three-tier retractable canopy, or the paw rest (18″ high)around the front of the compartment that makes you happy. Two pets will easily fit inside the 24″L x 18″W compartment. There are even two tethers inside the cabin to keep your pets safe. You can choose to secure the mesh screen over the opening to be sure your pets won’t try to jump out of the compartment. You will not have to worry about kicking the tires of this stroller when walking because the handle is nearly 40 inches from the ground. This gives you plenty of room to comfortably walk or jog.

Many people prefer a swiveling front wheel because it allows the stroller to handle easily around curves, aisles and smooth surfaces.

A removable comfort pad inside can be machine washed, which is convenient on days when dirty paws are likely. Your pet can enter the stroller through the back or front of the compartment. The storage basket and parent tray are other handy features of this pet stroller.

The Downside of Rawhide

All dogs like to chew, it’s a natural instinct. Owners like their dogs to chew, maybe not on their furniture or brand-new shoes, and keeping them busy with a chew toy is a good thing.rawhide-dog-chews

Rawhide bones are probably the most well-known chew toys for dogs. They come from the inner layer of cow or horse hides. The hides are cleaned, pressed and cut to form chewable size dog treats. Many offer a tasty flavoring. They can be long-lasting and aren’t as expensive as other chewy toys. They keep your dog’s teeth clean and their jaws strong.

For some dogs, rawhides can pose problems. Probably the most common of these problems is choking or blockage. Some dogs don’t take the time to chew up the bone little by little and they swallow large pieces. If the piece gets stuck, hopefully it is retrievable at the esophagus level. Otherwise the piece has to be  surgically removed.

Some dogs have sensitive digestive systems and get diarrhea from rawhide treats. You won’t know until you try it whether this is the case for your dog!

Even though rawhide treats are cleaned during manufacturing, sometimes there is bacteria that exists that might make your dog sick.

It is wise to pay attention to your dog while he’s eating a rawhide to make sure he doesn’t try to swallow a large piece. It also may not be a good idea to give your dog multiple rawhides in one day. Let him chew up one and be sure he doesn’t have any problems.

Don’t Let Your Dog Get Overheated

In many parts of the country, this summer has been slightly cooler than the previous three summers, but we still have had waves of significant heat. There are days where not only the blazing hot temperatures, but the sky-high humidity, contributes to your pet overheating. Obviously the goal is to keep your pet exercised, happy and healthy, so long walks in the wicked hot weather are not a good idea.English Bulldog Panting

It is best, if possible, to walk you dog early in the morning or at dusk. Another problem pets encounter is hot concrete and asphalt. These surfaces can damage your pet’s paw pads, so waiting until they cool off is advisable.

Animals with flat faces, such as Bulldogs, Pugs and Persian cats, are particularly vulnerable to overheating. Even though dogs and cats pant to cool themselves, if it’s too hot they can’t get all the moisture out of their lungs.

It’s not a good idea to leave your pet in the car, even with the windows down. The car is like an oven and may lead to danger for your pet. Always have cool water available for your pet, as they need to be able to drink as often as they choose.

If you see that your pet is panting too heavily, having difficulty breathing, having an increased heart rate, weakness, diarrhea, vomiting or seizures, then you need to get your pet to the vet as soon as possible.

NEW! Gen7Pets Promenade Pet Stroller

Gen7Pets is an innovative pet supplies company that is based out of eastern Pennsylvania. The experienced and dedicated design team created pet strollers that have Smart Features. These Smart Features make the pet strollers more convenient and easy to use for you, the owner, and more comfortable for your pet.G2340BO-2

The Smart Features on the Promenade Stroller are:

  • The canopy folds up underneath the canopy hood and can be secured with velcro. Many pet strollers have a canopy that opens into the pet compartment and gets in the way of the pet’s comfort and space. Gen7Pets has solved this problem.
  • The contoured stroller handle and 40 inch height create a comfortable position to push the stroller without kicking it. Many strollers do not have a high enough handle and you have to lean over, so as not to kick the stroller, if you choose to change your walking pace.
  • The Smart-Fold feature is a button on the stroller handle that allows you to easily fold it up. This stroller folds flat and locks for simple storage.
  • Smart-Basket is a large storage compartment underneath the stroller cabin that zips your items up safely.

Another feature that is smart to me is the front wheel that swivels or locks in place. When walking fast or running, it’s great to have the option to lock the wheel so the stroller can navigate over uneven road. For strolling or moderate pace walking, the swivel feature is key. This stroller is very popular because it can carry one pet or several smaller pets.G2340SG-1

It has windows in the front, top and the back, in addition to the full-view canopy. You can choose from the black onyx pattern, or a spring green. The pet cabin measures: 25″ long x 13″ wide x 21.5″ high and the cabin can hold a pet up to 50 pounds.
