"With Monica Layton president a professional pet sitting with our pet of the week on something probably very important because so many of us have them and want to bring some into our house so what's the best tips for bringing home a new cat yeah so a little bit of that research goes a long way you know finding a rescue in your area of quarters recommendations by your veterinarian is wonderful if you can adopt always adopt there's so many pets other than integrate home also if you've never had a cat before you always tell people go to the rescue once or twice just go in and volunteer to be a cat color you know go in for an hour and play with the cats they have because one if you're looking in cat looking for a cat it'll give you a good idea and which one is more personable which one comes to you things of that nature but two and a let you know if you have any allergies or not because if you've never had cats before unfortunately we hear that a lot all you know it's really affecting my allergies are you know my daughter has allergies so if you've never owned a cat before I always recommend just you know go in as a family just one day and you know do que like keno Kitty cuddling for the hour and make sure that you know you are okay before you make that commitment of email adopting up you know forever Pat the other thing is you know making sure that your pet has been spayed and neutered getting the background history on that Pat whenever you do adopt it you know we'll have clients come in a regular basis that you know my friend had a litter of kittens and you know they were so cute I took one wonderful they gave you know kept the home but it's a lot of times you know as a kid any vaccines that have this well I'm not sure so always ask and you know if they did great if they didn't that's fine you know week they'll get it taken care of is just knowing what kind of history you know the pet has had that way you're not repeating things that you don't have to you are giving something you know that you know it's already been done another thing is you know investing in a good quality litter your litter box your food you know you same as the people you are what you eat so getting them a good stable food you know is is definitely part of you know the longevity of in the health of that cat making sure the cavs under year of age you start out with the kitten kittens up to a year of age need a lot more vitamins and more nutrition and then account that's one to six or even six and up that different stages in your life you know you're going to require more nutrition so making sure that you know if it's a kitten under year of age you go with the kitten food if the animals from one to six go with an adult but it there seven or above then transition to a senior and you know we see a senior diet but I mean cats generally you know sixteen to eighteen year life expectancy so even if you go to a shelter and you have a seven year old cat don't get alarmed you know the fact that you're feeding a senior diet because it theoretically that's less than half of its lifetime it's just that at that age of that cat the activity levels not as much they don't need as many calories going in and if you can lower back that protein just a little bit at that age it does you know last digestion and stuff and less work through the kidney and liver so it maintains that help them you know and longevity a little longer making sure that you have twenty is appropriate toys for especially a kitten keeping the kitten occupied is huge that way they don't occupy themselves with other things that they shouldn't have I had a kid that was obsessed with hair ties I had to get on my daughter all the time because my daughter is really big and you know especially with gymnastics she's got scrunchies an elastic bands and Bobby pins everywhere so I had to really get on our case we had a bite you know covered things for the bathroom because she'd have these baskets that had over here ties in them and the cat will constantly steal them then we would find them and water dishes or if god forbid you left the toilet seat up we would find like ten here ties in the toilet when you came home he just had an obsession with hair ties any would pick them up and put them in any water source he defined by its elastics can be a real hazard when ingested so we went out and got containers that have the lids on them so that way he could think it into them and still are here tie them anymore but things of that nature like you find if the animal gets bored they're going to make their own amusement so like I said for kittens especially you know lots of twenties things for them to play with inappropriate scratching outlet is scratching pose different scratching pads so that way you know the cat can you know appropriately scratch in areas that it should instead of areas that we don't want it to learning how to trim their nails things of that nature is always good when you go into the veterinarian ask them to show you cats are fairly easy to see where you should clip it's just getting them used to that if you have somebody at home that can help you hold on to them you can kinda you know wrap a blanket or tell around then they come like a little Kitty burrito when do one little pada time the getting them used to that habit at a young age of possible is you know is huge it'll cut back the inappropriate but you know scratching things as well as you know getting them used to having that done without frustration fear and nobody you know likes wrestling he did do their nails treats if you're gonna do catnip things like that nature in I have seen some amazing cats come in that they train to walk on a leash and do this and not in there's some amazing things out there you know cats are in credibly intelligent so eight you have the time in that you know that's your pad then by all means you know I think it's a wonderful to you know socialize you know the cat as much as possible and you know get used to doing things because again the time you put in when you first get an animal is going to be rewarded the whole like throughout the lifetime of the pet you know the better and more acclimated that Pat becomes when they first come home is going to show it and you know it's daily routine throughout its whole life that's really interesting you brought up the that the scrunchies and my friend who adopted the CAD by the year ago and she said she'd come home from work and she'd say scrunchies were always in the capital no matter what or she had like a lack glass of water in the sink always goes how scrunchies ending up she saw when they did the little Kitty was taken scrunchie in putting this fall so there must be something to that but that's a whole other segment we gotta do one she's in cat water balls it's a funny thing it really it really it really is and we'll catch occasionally and he'll be walking through the house with his mail and you look at you and then the second you walk away is in a water dish but he will thank you very much and I hope everyone got some great advice on that end up being a new cat bring it home these are great ideas thank you so much thank you have a great week hello everyone miss Solomon so via the doggie deep I wanna thank you for your amazing response to their special book miss.

"Welcome back everyone to the dog Monica Layton president professional pet sitting with our pet of the week a Monica summer is here and is outside could you give us some summer safety heat up precautions for absolutely so yes it is hot and some of our certain breeds have more difficulties during this time of the year as well simply because of their airway issues you have some smaller breeds that tend to have you know the smaller trachea as you have your bronchi phallic breeds like your pugs and your **** Susan your Persian cats that kind of have the cute adorable smile she faces sometimes I can make it harder for the heat too you know escape them to get through the air waves that makes them more susceptible for over heating for heat exhaustion and heat stroke so just a couple things be aware that not only this machine face breeds that we talked about but geriatric pets even if it's a breed that would not normally have an issue geriatric breeds have been linked to having more issues with heat stroke to be very very cautious with their older guys try to walk not at peak times of the day you know have your longer walks be in the morning or closer to sundown in the evening to where it's not in the heat of the day make sure you always have water with you watch the cement cement in pain think it's so hot in on their pads and pies making it as severe severe burn from hot cement so always tested if you go out to the road ever road you're gonna be walking on the way they always recommend testing it is to go ahead and put your hands hold it there for at least five seconds of your hand is too hot then the pond should not be on that cement say you know go out to the road but your hand on there and hold it like I said without full five seconds and if you're getting hot then that's really going to affect your dog supplies another thing is knowing signs of heat exhaustion so that way if you are starting to see these signs you can get them and get them cool day want to get them to the veterinarian immediately so some of the signs of heat exhaustion it says a panting vomiting loose stool discolored guns you can actually get you can see in their nose and some of the lighter colored breeds and they're gone so get blue or a very very very bright red as they get you know hot that you can see that they get more read these pads will start being lethargic you'll get excessive drooling and kind of like a lack of coordination and if you're seeing those signs you need to get your that immediately you have to be extremely cautious because when you have heatstroke pets you have to slowly cool them down you want to immediately give them water but you do not want to give a huge amount because they can if they taking too much at one time that can actually make them vomit and become even more dehydrated so you definitely want to seek veterinary care don't just try to bring your pet homocore down yourself definitely rush to the veterinarian because when they over he and that internal temperature for your pet goes up to a level that's causing issues it's a very time sensitive issue and you get into organ failure you get into more severe cases if it's not treated immediately so that's definitely something that you don't want to kind of wait and see it's get them to that right away but I guess said cooling vests they have these really cool cooling best that you can get for your pets when you're walking to keep them cool you can you know change up the routine things of that nature the anything to where you're not doing an excessive amount of activity in the hot summer and watch your dogs for signs of overheating and that will really make it safe for them to be out during that time of the year well thank you that's so helpful because we don't want to spend as much time as we can with our pets but if we're spending it outdoors in the heat we have to make sure that we put their priorities kind of like a head of ours for that so I thank you so much this information thanks Monica thank you have a great week hello everyone miss Solomon so via the doggie deep I wanna thank you for your amazing response to their special book miss all of finds her forever home and they want to let you know that miss all of fines or forever home is now available in both hard cover and soft cover and that's.

You know, get those middle of the day p breaks out, but try not to do long excessive exercise don't leave your pets outside for a long period of time during the middle of the day provide clean water at all times that they are outside and also be really cautious in regards to darker skinned dogs.

You don't want to throw them in cool water or really ice them down or anything. Real quick. You have to get that temperature down at a very gradual pace.

Get them out of the heat and bring them straight year fat. Unfortunately, you know, some of the major things with heat stroke. The brain swells. You can get ulcers in the GI track.

"Welcome back. Everyone the dog show me we are here with Monica Layton, president of professional pet sitters, and you know, sometimes cats could little nervous when we have to take him to the vet and sometimes the actual trip to that could be even worse than the vets. Visit. So can you give us some tips on fair? Pre cat. Absolutely. So that's one thing that, you know, the veterinary hospital that I work for we really try to work on his peer free visits for our feline friends because one you want the visit to go well for the pet and the pet owner there's nothing worse than you know, how many bring your pet to the vet and having the visible horribly, and then as a pet owner, you feel bad that you put your cat through that. And you know, it's just not fun for anybody. And you want your pet to get regular exams and be seen so anything that can make that trip. A little easier is all the better for everybody involved. So as far as fear free visits. I always start with the number one thing at home is the carrier getting the pet too. They animal hospital. So keep in mind many vets do do house calls, but if they do not and you're bringing the pet in or maybe the pet sick. And in something that they can't do at home. Now, you're going to need to bring the pet in usually in a carrier. So I always suggest that, you know, leave the carrier out in a regular place on a regular visit a regular basis, if you can I always, you know, if it's one of the ones that are the hard plastic ones at the top sunscreen will all leave mine as a pet bed in the corner of one of the rooms that put blankets and stuff in there and little treats in there and leave it out all the time that way the pets used to sleeping with it. And the only thing that is changing is just the cover going on it when they need to travel, but it's a place that they're used to laying in and they feel comfortable and the other thing that I also suggest is they have peel away makes a product like a fair amount. Spray. I always spray the pet some blankets and stuff that are in their carrier. A least a half hour before you leave that'll help take some of the anxiety down as well. As long as you can get them to the office. Then when you get to the office a couple of things you can ask your veterinarian about is if they have feline friendly scheduling, for example, and our office will do blocks during the day, we'll have only feeling appointments that way they're not passing dogs coming in. And now other not hearing dogs barking in other rooms, and that helps you know with your feeling friends. So they're not getting a little anxious. Also, you know, an feeling from the exam room one that they can, you know, put their carrier in that has, you know, maybe Thurmond spray on the, you know, counter Manson, everything which we do at our office, you know, to help calm them down and make them little more ease. Also, you know, if you bring them in instead. Setting the carrier on the floor to where other pets could walk by it. You know, maybe having a bench high enough to where you can put them up at, you know, level with you that way they're not interacting with other pets are people walking by those are all things that can help alleviate the stress for that. Visit getting that pet in fast me are of course, you know, obviously helps the the amount of time that they're susceptible to interacting with other pets. They may not be happy about doing. And then, you know, once they're in there, you know, just going slow, and, you know, treats work to a certain extent. But oftentimes when they are a little anxious. They they don't want trees. They don't wanna eat. They just kinda wanna get done what they have to get down and go home. So, you know, really just going slow with the cat making them comfortable. Lots of padding. Lots of you know, safety feeling secure bringing your own blanket from home and many number. Wrap them up and that blanket, so they feel safe keeping the pet with you. Those are all things that kind of bring downing Sidoti of that visit with your cat. Another thing. Also is if those things alone don't do the job and the pet is still a little anxious. You know, talk to your event about, you know, prescriptions, or, you know, maybe trying some composure or some zucchini you some of the anti anxiety medications, you know, insert them a day or two before your visit in that way. The pets anxiety can come down even further for Monica. Thank you very much. And I think that that helped all our feline lovers out there. Get the visit to the vet safe armed comfortable's. Thank you. So very much. Thank you have a great day coming up summer's here and.

"Welcome back. Everyone to the Doug debate show. I'm here with Monica Layton, president of fashion pet sitting Monica. I gotta ask you because some of us have adopted some pads or maybe we even have pets in our lives. And sometimes they have a little bit of something we call separation anxiety. I do you have any tips on how to help with the separation anxiety. Sometimes it becomes so severe where you are going to need, you know, a medical you're going to need medication supplementation to kind of get that under control. However, there are a lot of training tips that you can do at home to help with that as well. So the first thing is they say, you know, when you leave the house, and when you come home, you know, of course, you're like, you know, when the dog comes home, and they're so excited to see you, you know, it's on so happy to see you. And you're gonna give them all this attention, and it's all this great, happy, happy happy thing. But then when you leave it's oh, so what they say is when you're. Packets hall when you get home and your pet is super duper duper excited to see you you actually ignore them for a bit to take away that the excitement of coming home. So it's not something. They're waiting on. So we actually nor them until they've calmed down then you interact with the pet. Another thing is they'll pick up on keys include that you are getting ready to leave. You are you know, doing your morning routine? European up your keys, you're putting on your shoes. And they say randomly of your pet start showing signs of, you know, whining crying, you know, things of that nature. Do that at your seven times without the day. You know, grab your keys put your shoes on things of that nature act. Like, you're gonna leave, but then do not leave. And that way, they do not associate picking up the keys you putting on your shoes things of that nature with leaving us so terrible. Another thing is to really exercise your pedal out before you go. Get them tired. Make sure they have that you know, attention everything has kind of been done they've been fed, they're happy and really exercise them that way, you know, they're kinda tired right before you go that way. It's it's becomes arrest time at that time and giving them a certain treats that they only get when you're gone that. They really enjoy as another great way of letting your dog pass the time. So they've already exercise, you know, you can put them in there. Crater leave them. Wherever you leave them. Maybe like they have the Car Toys, which are really great for that. They're like these little rubberized type of cone shaped toy and you can fill it with peanut butter, or, you know, some people fill it with water, and you know, as the dog licks it and breaks it up they can get you know, you can put like green beans in their apples chunks of cheese things like that. And they'll, you know, add water to those couple little treats and freeze it, and then as the Pat lick say and starts getting the chunks out. It's a slow delayed reward same thing like with the peanut butter sticking little chunks of stuff, you know, deep inside there. It's going to take them a while to get all that out. So it's going to be time consuming. They're going to be focused on their super special toy. So when you walk out the door, it's not a second thought. And also, you know, if you have a dog that's very vocal when you leave. Choose things up, you know, scratches at the door, those are definitely signs of separation anxiety. So if the couple of tips, I gave his first behavior isn't cutting it, then definitely see your veterinarian 'cause your pet probably needs to be on some kind of supplemental. Medication? Whether it be a anti-anxiety matter, you know, something a little stronger specifically for separation, anxiety, a Monica. That's so important having had a pet that had severe separation anxiety and we overcame it. We had to go through the medication and everything we adopted her and we'd know anything about her, but she did get over it. We had a change up our routine when we left the house when we came home. So you're everything that you said is so on spot because it's you also have to change what you do to help alleviate the anxiety, the pet and always go to your bad. If it's such a severe case. I know I had one. So thank you. So very much. Thank you have a wonderful week. Do you want to show off your pep while also helping dogs around the world. We'll have your.

"Welcome back everyone to the dog Davis show here. What Monica Layton, the president of professional pet sitting and Monica here, we are wherein in summer summer is so much fun but summers hot Twee have any tips to keep our pet school this summer. Yes. So as you know, I mean, especially where we are. But all over the US summer. The Heat's get really high, and it can take a big toll on our pets. They estimate hundreds of dogs suffer from heatstroke every summer. So a couple helpful tips to avoid that with your pet is, you know, knowing the symptoms of overheating knowing how to treat it, and also, you know, rent you best exercise your pet, for example, you know, try to cut out those long amid day walks. Try to have you know, your longer walks in your longer exercises being in the morning. You know at first sunrise or in the evening before sunset. Just not right in the middle of the day. You know, get those middle of the day p breaks out, but try not to long excessive exercise don't leave your pets outside for a long period of time during the middle of the day provide clean water at all times that they are outside and also be really cautious in regards to darker skin dogs. They overheat quickly, you know, black dogs out in the sun becomes very hot very fast. And the other thing also is long haired dogs keeping them, very cruel. Having water readily available some of the signs of overheating. If you are out with your dog. Panting excessive thirst their tongue in their gums get a really bright red. They can get an elevated temperature. They can stagger. They'll actually collapsed when it gets severe and heat stroke can be extremely fatal. If it's not taking care of quickly. That's one thing. That's really important. You wanna immediately start pulling the dog down, but you have to be very cautious in doing that. When you have a heat stroke victim. You don't want to throw them in cool water or really ice them down or anything real quick. You have to get that temperature down at a very gradual pace. So, you know, putting cruel towels on the Pat, you know, giving them water, but in small increments, so they don't start bringing it up things of that nature immediately. You know, bring the Pat indoors get them out of the heat and bring them straight year fat. Unfortunately, you know, some of the major things with heat stroke. The brain swells. You can get all sorts in the GI track. And what happens is that the kidneys start to shut down. So getting them to Evatt as quickly as possible is the key to treatment and also be really really cautious with era with your bracket. Brackenfield feel breeds. You know, like your BULLDOGS, and your French BULLDOGS and your pugs in the ones that have this mushy faces be very careful with them when it comes to heat as well, keeping, you know, they're walks and they're outside time, very limited because they are more prone to overheat and have those issues and other breeds are. There's a great tips. And of course, we want to have a nice safe cool summer and also remember, please this is year round. But please never leave your dogs locked up in the car. It's the absolute worst thing that you could do and always remember that you may have a friend sitting in the backseat. You may have them. Rated up in the back of your SUV. Please make sure before you leave your car that you check all your doors, even your back because sometimes we just in a hurry. And we forget, so please don't forget stay safe.
