Inexpensive Home Remedies for Common Pet Ailments
Party Marty, back on the scene with some home remedy health ideas for your pets: If you are like me, you hate to spend a lot of unnecessary money, especially these days when tightening our belts is far more necessary than it used to be. While there are certain products that can help your pet with certain medical conditions, they can be expensive. As such, here are a couple of ideas to share that will greatly minimize your out-of-pocket costs, as shared by pawnation.com. Of course, please be sure to inquire of your veterinarian before using any of these products on your pet just to make sure they are safe.
Vaseline petroleum jelly: This stuff works great on your pet’s paws. Just because it is cold, snowy, icy and chilly doesn’t mean your pet has to abandon his walks. Put some of this stuff on the pads of his paws before going out to help alleviate the discomfort from walking on snow and ice. Apply some more when he comes in to aid in chapped and dry paws.
Carrots: These are great chew treats for dogs with halitosis. You know…nasty breath! They will naturally scrub away the plaque from your dog’s teeth, thereby reducing that yucky bad breath with which I am certain many of you are familiar!
Is your pet constipated? Check your pantry. If you have some canned pumpkin in there – and if it has not expired – feed some to your dog to help ease the transition from constipated bowels to outdoor relief!
Well, those are just a few handy, dandy tips. I must go take my morning nap. I’ve been up for an hour or two and have been working hard. This cold weather is making me sleepy! Catch you all later!
