How to prevent dog from Constipation (Pets)

Hello doggies & Hoomans! Here is another post base on what I experience in the past few days. My dog has a constipation for about 5 days and I was very worried for her and I don’t have any solution or help due to my financial low. I was scared to go for vet cause I don’t have any financial. So what I do is I monitor her for the few days, and at the same time I try to make her dinner food portion balanced. Means like try to make it balance for the portion of rice I gave.

Currently now I’m feeding her back to rice but lesser rice with mix veggie and Shredded chicken breast meat. It’s sounds healthier I guess so and I hope I’ve made the right choice for her. Because when I feed her kibbles past few months, I discover her fur drop and previously she didn’t drop fur when I feed her rice. So I would like to try it again this time and make it better.

A lot of people say kibbles or wet food are much salty and that’s why they drop fur. But I came across this grab driver and he told me there are also kibbles that are not salty but also quite pricy. Somehow I feel kibbles really are salty. Just by the smell of it.

So back to the topic on how to prevent constipation. Before I realised Oreo didn’t poo for 5 days, I was shocked and panic. And I also saw she poo with corn bits before she stop poo-ing for 5 days. So I was thinking maybe it the corn bits that get her blockage? or was it something else.

I went for research from google, there are a few points that cause constipation.

  • Blockage
  • Experience harden food

Blockage might be one of the possible reason. So I cut her food into pieces now to get her easier to digest. I was so panic and I went to buy some pumpkin as the google mentioned pumpkin can help digestion.

The funniest thing is I didn’t get the food in time to cure her cause all by deliveries. So what I did was, I gave her balanced rice portion with mixed veggie and chicken. As for morning I feed her treats biscuits cause I try not to feed her rice or only dishes without rice due to can get her unbalanced meal I guess. That’s how I feel, so I will maintain only rice for dinner. Is like humans don’t eat heavy breakfast.

Surprisingly! she finally poo before my pumpkin come. Ha-Ha! I finally feel relief ~~~ The next day she poo too, by feeding her balance rice portion I guess that solve the problem. If you want to prevent this from happening, do monitor your dog diet. Make sure they don’t eat harden food. To me I didn’t consult a vet. I will just try it on my own. But if you experience something similar like me, you can try giving a balance portion diet. or just consult a vet for safety purposes.

Well, there are quite a lot of times you will face problems as you own a doggie or pet. Just have to make sure you can afford before consider getting a pet. That’s my advise for all pet’s lovers out there.

Hope this helps you!

Happy Pet-ing!

Pets : Back to kibbles with wet food

Woof!!~

The reason why I get her back to kibbles is because I don’t want Oreo to suffer by eating human food. Previously I gave her rice with wet dog food. She loved it a lot . But people and friends around me keep said that rice are not good for dogs. I’m so confused so i decided to gave her kibbles and I feel relief by giving her kibbles which is what dogs eat. Not to think and depressed so much.

Currently now I’m feeling her Royal Canine mini for Adults with wet food. chicken flavor. Surprisingly she suit to eat chicken which I heard a lot of people said most dogs has allergy to chicken. And me and my friend actually found out something about the kibbles ingredients. Some chicken flavor come with ingredients that’s not suit for your dogs, partly is not because of chicken flavor, maybe is the ingredients.

When you met a picky dog, these are the problem that you will faced. This is how I train her now, I add wet food to kibbles and she finished it. She seems to like wet food more. My concern is to lower down my expenses.. but if this training fail i might switch to wet food instead. And also wet food packaging doesn’t come in big sizes so have to keep on buying or buy in a monthly basics.

I really hope she can get use to kibbles.. recently i realized she have this weird and funny act. When I leave the food on the floor she smell and don’t bother to eat it. But when my dad… yes my dad walk passed her food, she panic. She barked at my dad. And she go to her food and finished with my dad standing there🤷🏼‍♀️. I was like … ok… what’s wrong with you.. what does that even mean.. haha. So now she finished it with wet food.

Dear pets owners out there, If you have any better idea or solution, please help me with it. I will be very grateful for helping me 🙏🏻 !

The Malti-Poo and Shih Tze

Hello to all woofy! We had another gathering at my house and with my friend, poppy! We had a blast day fighting & disturbing each other while my human is out. (See how bad we are..)

What I discovered is dog had a similarity with humans. They only do their own things at their own house and space. While outing, they will behave like heaven. At home is like hell.. 🤣 (hands up if it’s true!)

I have no idea what they fighting or playing for. But I can feel they are still friends after all😅.

Sharing info:

currently still working on making videos to post on YouTube, do check out my channel link and do like and subscribe too. Maybe not for now but in the future! Will update soonest once I done my videos.

The dog with the cat ear..

I just snap this picture while she lying on the floor. Super cute of her.
Currently she is on medication due to skin allergy. Finally I decide to bring her to vet for check and yeah, she got skin allergy and flaky skin. And my very first question to the doctor is, is it serious.. cause I’m too worried for her and also due to some financially problems.

Now with medication, I feel more relieved. Cause after monitoring for a few days, she is slightly better now. So hopefully she get well soon!

This is what you need to have.. responsible.. for your pet. Especially dogs or cats or any other pet. Well I really learn it and I will definitely treat her the right way and do my part.

recently just change her food back to kibbles under science diet. Surprisingly she suit to eat chicken. Cause I heard a lot of people say chicken is the one that cause the allergy. I think is it but only for some dogs. Every dog have their own suitable food. That’s so much convenient for me. I mean that’s my purpose of changing her food back to kibbles. I’m in charge now to take care of my furkid cause I’m the one who wants to keep her in the first place. But without anyone help, include my dad. So I was like, ok fine. But at least he will still help to feed her.

One thing sweet about Oreo is, she loved to stick with me and when I’m not around she was like “out of her mind” and trying to mess up the place.
Oh well, she need more training then. 😏

Mostly all hamster looks fat, just like a fury ball! Some is because their hair too Bucky and some is … really FAT.

Lets talk about how to control their diet.

For an adult Roborovski should weight range from 25 – 35g. But overweight are common to hamsters cause it’s very easy to over feed these little ones. They get overweight easily is because we often pamper our fur friends with food or treats that are high in sugar, flour based ingredients. All these contain weight gain. Hence, treats should be given only twice weekly at most. 

Overweight Causes

Overweight may cause heart problems, fatty liver diseases and joint pain in hamster.

How to control your hamster diet

Exercise is the key for Roborovski, Some hamster love their wheels and they do exercise in the morning just like humans do! Shouldn’t be an issue for these breed cause they are extremely active and loves running. To be surprised, Roborovski hamster can run the distance of four humans marathons! WHAT! cool or what? Ha-ha!

Do also check : 

  • check on their Wheel is it the correct size.
  • any uneven surfaces on the wheel.
  • Give them treats only once a week.

They might not enjoy the run due to discomfort. 

Helps with their Exercise

There are a few things you can do to help them and encourage them to exercise by building a tunnel using unused paper rolls.

Healthy Tips 

Feed them with small bits of vegetables, cucumbers, celery are all fat free! Can train them for exercise by putting small bits on along the tunnel or their wheel. I always do that to my hamsters and I feel heathy too! 😀

So, do observed and monitor whether these vegetable cause diarrhea in your hamster. Another option is to purchase a Running Ball.

How to choose a Dogs for Beginners

These are the few that need to be considered before you think of getting a pet dog.

Most important part is, have to be considerate if you have children or others who are allergic to fur stuff. Might want to consider having Hypoallergenic Dogs. The size of the dog also one of the important to take note of, you won’t want to scare anyone in your house thou. Especially when you have children or newborn babies. I mean is good to have babies growing up with pets. Such wonderful memory which I feel that’s so sweet to have them playing together having fun!

Are you ready to have your first dog? To spend your life with him and be you dog champion!

Breed

There are a lot of dog breed to choose from. From dog breed to dog type, maintaining to training for beginners is quite difficult for them. It takes a lot of time and patience to look after a dog friend. They are like your lifetime partner, spending the happy moment, teach them and give them a wonderful life like they always deserve it! If you love Pets, cherish them like a treasure. Because they have a personality just like Humans.

Some are friendly, some are fierce. Some are really playful but some are easy to train.

Some may need more care on high maintenance like grooming or bring them out just like daily exercise for them. As they also love to run around the backyard and spending time together. Also with low maintenance where there’s no need to be worried about as they will somehow look after themselves at home or even families too.

Or if you do love small breed dogs, some small space area that will be fine too. A large breed is mainly for big houses and some may use up electrical too like Husky. They may need Air – condition space. So have to make the right choice and to make sure you plan everything for them.

Most of the dog’s lover loved to have a big dog family and very responsive with their champion. However you will love to mix them around with other breed dogs, good mixer dog are the best choice. If you want to have puppies with just to make sure you approach a vet clinic for advise first before you start breeding, especially for beginner dog owner.

Size, Traits

Maybe you will know the size comes along, for large for sure is big size, as for small breed it will be small size. Knowing what type of dog you want or the breed, it would be easier. Small breed with small size you can bring around or carry it with a dog bag would be good. As for my experience, if you are taking outside transport is better to bring a bag but if you have your own transport, that would be the best to bring without a bag is up to your choice. If you cannot decide what breed to have best, you might consider medium size breed dog.

A large dog will need a big space for them to run around and a space for a rest area. Huge large with a long tail will need ” wagging tail” with big space too. To prevent from tail injury or damage of household objects.

And comes to the most slightly hard to afford part which is the expenses of your dog. Especially for those who loved dogs and willing to keep them and have them to spend the rest of your life with them, some come with poor finance and wanted to have a dog. Sometime don’t have to buy a dog. I have dog that given from my neighbor all along and I did my very best to give them the best meal and life with them. “The Power of Love”. Can really see that how much I really love a to have a dog.

Just remember to give them the right meal and the right dog food. Do ask a dog assistance for advice before you buy anything which you are not very sure about it. Small breed dog will defiantly lesser expenses. But for large breed will be quite hard to afford to cause their meals is the super big amount. For advice, you might need to consider wisely before you thought of having a large breed. Most headache part is the medical bill. If you didn’t take good care of them, all the expenses will go to the medical bill, and it’s gonna be a disaster.

Before you set out to look at puppies, you will need to do a lot of research and make discussions. This is the only way to help you Ensure to find a puppy that has the traits, size, and shape, personality to fit your lifestyle.

Best is to sit down and discuss with your families members some important point:

What you want from a dog

How much time do you have?

What type of dog do you prefer, Big or small breed type, hairy or non-shedding

A non-shedding coat means you have to pay for professional grooming throughout your dogs lifetime, Long haired silky breed you will need to carry out grooming session every day by yourself.

Some point you have to get advise just to make sure you have the right choice. Because this is gonna be with you for the rest of your life, life spends with your dog are so important to them.

Ask yourself are you willing to make all this commitment? As for character Wise, consider carefully what traits your future dog should have. Talk to dogs owner for some advice if you can. They might have some experience and ideas together.

Energy and exercise 

Think about your character, what kind of character are you. Are you as sporty as some of the dogs who love to walk, run around, love to play and exercise? Or are you quiet person who love peaceful and spend more time with your dog indoor in the backyard hanging around with your Neighbor dogs. Getting energy level right is important. If you are a person who is not really sporty and would prefer a dog to lie down and do nothing most of the time, then don’t choose working breed.

Find out how much exercise your choice of dog will need. One of the best ways is to check out with your friends or Neighbor who have a dog breed that interest you, get to know them well cause this can give you useful insights into both benefits and downside of your chosen breed.

Grooming

This is the most basic care for a dog, it’s also very important to their appearance, like nails. This is one of my most concern since I have dogs. As for what I know, if you didn’t do the nail trim when is needed, it may grow longer and once longer it might hurt them and at that point of time, it may cause blood and it can be very painful.

As for the puppy, you will need a supplement for the start. Cause it may need to take extra care and if you want to train them well, you will need to put in a lot of heart and patient. Accompanied is the most needs. They may want more attention from you and this will affect their behavior each time they grow. Maybe need to get those care products like cleaning of eyes, ears. These are all important too. If you are planning to go on grooming once or twice a month, they should be no problem. But if you know how to use those products by yourself, make sure you read all the instruction carefully before using it, to give extra careful, this is really much of my concern. ^^

So this are the few points which you need to know before you want to have a dog. Hope this information helps you!
