Buy Pet Supply Container and Dispenser

Many of us have dogs, and surely enough we do regular purchases of pet supplies for their everyday needs such as dog food, shampoos and anti-tick powder among others. From the pet supply store, it is best that all your purchases on such products be kept and stored away on a safe place.

Store pet supply on secure and safe containers

Pet supplies are quite expensive so it is best that we keep them in secure containers to preserve their quality. Dog food for example should be stored in secure and safe containers; oftentimes insect such as ants and even pests like cockroaches can reach unprotected pet food and infest them. Your pet dog itself might mess up any bag of dog food that is left open and uncovered on a corner.

To assure proper storage of your pet food and other pet supply, you may buy storage containers from most pet store. Just make sure that you buy the size and number of containers that are appropriate for your storage needs.

Almost every pet supply store likewise sells food dispensers, which are really handy in giving the right amount of food for your dog. This can be considered a must buy if we want a rather controlled and precise dispensing of dog food. There are many models of dog food dispensers, the nice ones are those that can be mounted on your wall to save on space.

Buying Pet Dog Apparel

Some pet owners think of pet apparels and clothes as just for accessorizing and enhancing the appearance of their dogs. They see pet apparel merely as costumes that they can put on their dogs during holidays and special occasions. Still, for many other pet owners, dog apparel is not just an accessory but considered an important necessity for their dogs.

And so this winter, it would be a treat for your pet dog if you can include in your list of pet supply some right dog apparel for your pet. Especially on the coming Yuletide Season, nice Santa attire would be a great costume that you might want to buy your dog. Certainly it would look so very cute on such costume, and would not provide amusement for you but for everyone else, especially for kids. Likewise, during this cold season, not only will pet clothes accessorize your dogs, but will also provide them with the nice and cozy warmth that they need.

When buying the appropriate clothes for your pet dog, sometimes you would have to buy from large pet stores, as the smaller ones usually do not sell them. And while you can buy them on a brick and mortar store, you can also shop from some online stores, which I believe is much more convenient because they readily have on online list of apparels, complete with picture, making the choice and purchase of clothes for your dog much easier.

What’s a great advantage of online pet store is that it offers discount especially if you will buy bulk purchases. Of course, do not be concerned with just the price of the apparel. You will also have to think about the quality as well as the convenience and comfort that your dog will enjoy once it wears its clothes.

Buying Online Pet Medication: A Serious Issue

Ordering pet medication online has become very popular as of late. But this phenomenon has come with the fact that the dangers of easily acquiring regulated pet medicine online even without any prescription from the licensed veterinarian exist.

Because of this, federal laws and regulations regarding the purchase of online pet medication are put in place to protect pets and owners from any possible precarious circumstances.

What exactly is the problem that can arise with online pet medicine? First of all, there exist quite a number of pet pharmacies on the internet which offer prescription pet drugs to clients whose pets are not actually examined by a veterinarian. Where do these online companies get the prescription? From their employed company veterinarians. The appropriate government agencies are now aware of this practice and hopefully doing some action to stop online pet drug companies from continuing doing it.

Would you want to administer doubtful pet medicine to your pet dog or cat? Is it not proper to have it first examined by its veterinarian for the right diagnosis and prescription before you order from any online pet medication provider?

Do not risk your pet’s help; if he is sick right now, do not aggravate it any further by hastily buying online without the right prescription. The further possible damage to your pet’s health is not worth the few dollars that you might save from the orders that get from these unscrupulous online pharmacies.

Build it Yourself Dog House Kit

Even if you might want to build a dog house yourself for your beloved pet dog, it can be a really difficult task to do especially because of the many difficult requirements such as design plans, woodwork and other building materials.

Likewise, you should at least possess a decent carpentry and design skills just to be able to pull off a project such as building your own dog house. If you do not have the required skills for dog house building, then it is really a wise decision to do that next best thing, which is to purchase one from the pet supply store.

Most pet stores offer dog house kits that are actually quite easy to assemble. Instructions are usually simple to understand, and comes with diagrams on the assembly process.

A great advantage of build-it-yourself kit is that it requires less time (and even energy and effort) to build a dog house that it would the traditional way of building one. In a matter of one hour or two, you will be able to complete the assembly without any hitch.

And once you fully assemble the dog house kit, you have the option of further customizing it by adding things to further enhance the house such as accessories like dog pads and mattresses and even shutters.
The most important advantage of build it yourself dog house kit is the fact that you would spend less money on it than you would if you build one the traditional way, especially if you decide to let a professional builder or carpenter do the building of the dog house.

Whether traditional or the assemble-the-kit way of having a dog house for your pet, what matters is that your pet dog finally has its home. Just make sure that it is convenient and comfortable enough for your dog to readily recognize and accept the dog house as its own.

Are You a Dog or Cat Person?

Which would you choose for a pet – a dog or a cat? A Lassie or a Felix? A Scooby Doo or a Garfield? Which do you think is the better family pet? Some families I know have a pet dog or two, and never a pet cat. Others have both. While still, some other families have only pet cats.

In my case, I usually own both animals; they are always running around the house, with the dog chasing after the cat. They seem to be always clashing, forever in battling mode although fortunately it has never turned violent.

My last pet dog was a brown mutt, my beloved mongrel of a dog with unknown descent. I got it from a downtown corner pet store, sold to me by a dog peddler who has been the origin of all the dogs that I had. Dogs are great companions, seemingly not getting tired of following his master all the time. My pet dog is the overly patronizing type – goes wherever I go; we are like Siamese twins, but with an invisible link that is.

Cats are wonderful pets especially for people who love those that are purebred. One relative owns a white, exotic-looking Balinese cat the fur of which shines so lustrously albeit my relative hardly does regular grooming to its coat. It turns out it is one great quality of this cat breed.

Likewise, pet cats are great – if you would love them around because they scare away the vermin that stubbornly lurks around your house. On its own, cats especially the wild feral type, are such a challenge. Yet I was able to successfully domesticate a few. While naturally, a cat can be indifferent even to the one who feeds it, I have my share of loving moments with my pet cat. Mine has a habit of rubbing its tummy and head on my legs and feet whenever it wants to call my attention. Actually it is a sign that my cat wants to be fed, and I always oblige.

So, are you more of a dog or a cat lover? There is no need to choose as you can actually have both. On the first few days, it is a given that fights and chases will occur. But eventually at the very least they will not mind each other. However, if you see that acts of aggressive still persists (especially on the part of the dog), it is best to give up one of them.

It is great if friendship or even just animal civility blossoms between them. Despite their differences and their constant squabbles (with you always acting as the mediator), it is really nice if you can enjoy both dogs and cats together as family pets.
