This is lip smacking good.

Mk Dug right in and gobbled the turkey entree up.

Second day feeding.

Mk’s not a fan of eating the same meal multiple days in a row, especially if it was put in the refrigerator. On the second day I put the food in the microwave for a few seconds to take the chill off, fed it to her and she dug right in again.

Four days in a row.

I did this for four days in a row to finish up the can and she ate it each time. What makes this so delightful is she can then try a new flavor and won’t get bored eating the same o same o. She’s ready for the Thanksgiving celebration now since I know she will eat this food and continue to eat it.

It’s on sale right now at Chewy.com for $12.70.

MK The Construction Worker

Yesterday I posted this photo of MK and the caption was “What’s Up MK?”.

Last week MK was up, she was up on John’s work truck. He bought his truck home so we could start working on our pheasant pen. He is constructing some of the pen out of steel, being that John is a steel worker by trade we needed to make the pheasant house out of steel. MK was out exploring and she decided this truck was something new and she needed to give it the once over. Up in the truck she went and then up on the roof she went.

What do we got going on up here?

Better make sure all is safe.

Safety first!

After the inspection then MK came over for some loving.

After the loving then more supervising with Glory on the pheasant house building.

MK loves to hang out with us when outside. She has no fear and has to be into everything. She is a all around cat.

World Spay Day

World Spay Day is today February 28, 2017. Being a Veterinary Technician I feel the need to share this day and some information about Spaying.

World Spay Day is an international day of action to promote the sterilization of pets, community cats and street dogs as a way to save animals’ lives. It takes place each year on the last Tuesday of February. The next World Spay Day is February 28, 2017. Created as Spay Day USA by the Doris Day Animal League (DDAL) in 1995, World Spay Day is now a program of The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), Humane Society International (HSI) and Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association (HSVMA).

On World Spay Day and throughout the month of February — Spay/Neuter Awareness Month — veterinary and animal welfare professionals, business owners and concerned individuals join forces to shine a spotlight on spay/neuter as the most effective and humane means of decreasing the number of homeless animals put down in shelters or living on the street.

As you know I am also a breeder so I do have intact breeding stock. If my pet’s aren’t used for breeding or are retired from breeding I do go ahead and spay/neuter them.

MK being spayed.

Spaying/Neutering

  • Prevents unwanted dogs and cats
  • helps prevent some serious health problems
  • may reduce behavioral problems associated with the mating instinct

Preacher was spayed when I found out she couldn’t be part of our breeding program.    

Surgical sterilization
During surgical sterilization, a veterinarian removes certain reproductive organs.

  • Ovariohysterectomy, or the typical “spay”: the ovaries, fallopian tubes and uterus are removed from a female dog or cat. This makes her unable to reproduce and eliminates her heat cycle and breeding instinct-related behavior.
  • Orchiectomy, or the typical “neuter”: the testes are removed from a male dog or cat. This makes him unable to reproduce and reduces or eliminates male breeding behaviors   *AVMA*

All my animals have been spayed the traditional way as in a Ovariohysterectomy. There are now alternative ways of spaying and neutering that some veterinary clinics are doing. I only know of one vet clinic in WI which is Veterinary Village my reproduction clinic that is doing the ovary sparing technique. Veterinary Village also has a great resource page on the Spay Neuter Controversy which you can read HERE.

Nellie being spayed after her breeding career was over.

Surgical alternatives to traditional spaying and neutering
The procedures described above are the surgical procedures routinely used to spay or neuter dogs, but some pet owners opt for one of these alternatives:

  • Hysterectomy: the uterus and part of the fallopian tubes are removed from a female dog or cat. This makes her unable to reproduce, but her ovaries remain and will produce hormones.  This may not eliminate the dog or cat’s behaviors associated with the breeding instinct.
  • Vasectomy: only the vas deferens, which conducts sperm from the testes, are removed. This procedure makes the dog or cat unable to reproduce, but his testes remain and will produce hormones. This may not eliminate the dog or cat’s behaviors associated with the breeding instinct.
  • Ovariectomy: the ovaries are removed from a female dog or cat, but the uterus remains. Similar to ovariohysterectomy, this makes her unable to reproduce and eliminates her heat cycle and breeding instinct-related behavior. *AVMA*

Norman being neutered at age 10.5 years.

Norman was neutered at 10.5 years of age when he started having prostrate problems and I had frozen semen on him so I neutered him for his health. He did fine being neutered until the day he passed at 13 years of age. Nellie was spayed at 8 years of age after she had her last litter of puppies. She is currently 12.5 years of age and has had no health problems associated with spaying. She doesn’t have any urinary incontinence  problems. Preacher was spayed at one year of age. She was my youngest dog to spay so will see what happens with her. MK was spayed at 5 months of age and well you know cats they always have issues!

So become informed and talk to your Veterinarian on what is right for your pet.

 

Kong Cat Wobbler #chewyinfluencer

Chewy White

Ding Dong Chewy.com #ChewyInfluencer calling.

 I started this months Chewy review with Hank again since he is a kitten and hasn’t been exposed to much. Hank was happy to inspect the new toy and see what it was all about.  I put Hanks breakfast in the Kong Cat Wobbler toy and showed him his food was in there. He needed a bit of help in the beginning to show him if he tipped it then the food would come out and he could eat. He was a fast learner and tipped it to get his meal.  I then took it home to MK and let her have her paw at it. I did the same with her and she learned also that she had to tip it and food would be dispensed. She continued to eat the morsels that came out. Then the review went from the cats to the dogs.You see the Sand Spring dog gang has the canine version of the Kong Wobbler and they love it. They are always playing with it. So why wouldn’t they want the pretty purple cat one with a handle?Preacher was the first thief to grab the Kong Wobbler from the cat, carry it off and start to play with it to get the num num’s out.  Glory wanted the toy so bad she jumped up on the table to get at it and then having that nice furry handle on it Gambler grabbed it and was off like a bandit. I must admit the dogs had more fun with the Kong Wobbler than the cats did or it might of been they kept stealing it the cat didn’t have time to really enjoy it. This is a toy that would be good for a multi species household, if the cat doesn’t like it then the dog definitely will.

MK is tempted to eat the whole container.

MK even got in the box to eat her treats, she didn’t have to be tempted at all with these treats. These are definitely treats to be used if you want to teach your cat tricks. She would do anything for these little bites of goodness. She kept coming back to the container for more. They were a big hit with her!
