One of the most important things you can do for and with your pet is spend time with it. You might invest in lupine collars and buy needed treatment like Nutramax to keep them healthy, but they need to spend time with you too. Whether it’s your best little buddy of a pooch, or the sweet cat you rescued when it was just a kitten, these guys have a loyalty to us like no other. And for that, you owe them some one on one time. It’s important to “socialize” with your pet and put aside some time to play with, pet, and generally love them.
- Make time out of your day and make it a regular part of your schedule. Instead of saying you’ll play with the cat when you have time, or tossing your dog a chew toy and hoping they’ll entertain themselves, take some time when you come home from work or before you head out in the morning to play and make it consistent.
- Play with your pooch or cat for a good 30 minutes or so, or until they tire before that. Not only will the love the attention, but it’ll wear them out so they get a good night’s (or day’s) sleep.
- Let your pet keep you company once in a while. Maybe you don’t want them jumping on the bed or in a certain room, but you can still spend time in a place they are allowed. Just the company can really make a difference!

You love your horse; that much is true. And no doubt you want your horse to be as healthy as possible. While it’s true too that simply feeding and exercising your horse are great ways to stay on top of that, there are in fact other things that you can do as well. Supplements, for example, are a great way to buttress an already great regimen of health for your horse.
Nutramax Laboratories has proprietary veterinary researched specifications that are unique in their ability to bolster health in animals. Cosequin Equine Powder, for example, a product created under such standards, is the number one veterinarian recommended brand for horse supplements. Why is that?
Because it’s created to help and maintain a horse’s joints. It simultaneously supports the structure of cartilage and stops the enzymes that try to diminish cartilage. And that’s great, because you want your horse moving freely, comfortably, and without pain. Helping a horse maintain healthy joints is an important piece in ensuring that remains a possibility.
So, because you love your horse, take a look into some health supplements. Start with the number one recommended brand powered by Nutramax proprietary specifications while you’re at it. Your horse, and its joints, will thank you.

When it comes to Nutramax supplements, there’s a lot to know. There are quite a few different choices for your dogs and cats that can help with different health issues they may have, or just to keep them healthy as they get older. It is important that they take these supplements regularly, especially if a vet recommends them. But what kind of supplements does Nutramax offer?
For your best buddies, there’s something great to help their skin and fur called Dermaquin. Sometimes as pets get older, their coats lose their luster and softness. This supplement helps bring it back as shiny and new as it was as a puppy or kitten.
Two other major issues tend to be digestive and joint health. This both can really affect our pets in their older age. Animals can have indigestion and arthritis too! Cosequin is the supplement for joint health, which comes in a variety of choices that you may want to consult your veterinarian on. They can best tell you which can help your pet overcome their aches and pains. Bactaquin is the supplement that helps digestive problems so that your pets can have normal bowel movements and be tummy ache free.

Cats, and dogs, often suffer from the same diseases that humans do. Nearly 85% of adult pets have periodontal disease. If left untreated, the bacteria can actually spread through the pet’s bloodstream and infect major organs. But other dental issues can occur too, such as gum disease and tooth decay –resulting in a loss of teeth. Obviously your veterinarian will check your cat’s teeth during examinations, but you should be keeping an eye on his mouth at home too.
There are plenty of dental care products to keep your kitty’s mouth happy and healthy. Try to brush your cat’s teeth at least two time a week. There are special toothbrushes available, as well as ones that slip over your index finger. Start by doing just a few teeth at a time if your cat is uncomfortable. Many chewable treats and other products are on the market that have an abrasive texture to help remove food debris and plaque from the teeth. It’s best to start these practice when your cat is still a kitten instead of waiting until you notice a problem
Look for cat dental products at Rescue Pet Supply. And when you’re in need of carriers, healthcare products, and other great supplies, shop trusted brands like Pet Gear, Nutramax, and much more at our store.

Now that spring is here, your dog will be shedding his winter coat and growing in a new one for spring. Good news for the dog, not so much for your home. But regardless of the season, dogs (and cats) need frequent grooming and upkeep if you want the home to have minimal piles of fur and to keep his coat looking beautiful.
It all starts with hair brushing. Not only do dogs enjoy being brushed, it will maintain their healthy coat. The amount of brushing and the type you choose depends on the breed of dog and its hair. Long-haired dogs require daily brushing, while medium-haired dogs should be brushed weekly to prevent matting and tangles. Short-haired dogs can go much longer. But brush more frequently during shedding season to prevent a build-up.
Nails need to be trimmed but pet owners and dogs both hate this ordeal. You can have your vet or groomer do it for you, but you should also learn how to do it yourself too.
When it comes to bathing, some dogs love it, others hate it –most owners do too. Most dogs can be bathed monthly and you should always make it a positive experience for them. Ask your veterinarian if specific shampoos are best for your dog’s hair.

Ringworm is a common fungal infection among pets, especially dogs, cats, and even horses. The infection invades the hair and hair follicles. It is transmitted by spores in the soil that come into contact with the hair. But dogs and cats do not just get it, humans can too. Actually, humans can transmit the infection to their pets and vice versa. Children are actually very susceptible. Either way, it needs to be treated right away.
Warning signs include a spreading circle of hair loss with scaly skin at the center and a red ring on the periphery. The infection itself isn’t itchy, but a secondary bacterial infection with scabs can cause your pet to lick and scratch the area. The infection can also infect the nails which will be dry, cracked, and brittle.
The solution? Topical agents like shampoo. Malaseb and Ketochlor shampoo both fight the fungi and yeast. They can reduce the risk of transmission to other animals and humans and stop the spread of skin problems, reducing skin irritation and reactions. Read the labels of these shampoos though to make sure they are safe to use on your animal. Rescue Pet Supply carries both these brands, which can be very pricey through the vet, but much more affordable if purchased online.
