Check Out Mercola Pets for cats and dogs both

cats and dogs







I just got an email from Mercola Healthy Pets that folks in the cat community and the dog community will want to check out.  I was thinking of the kitties with IBD.  If only I had had this information years ago!  I wonder if it might have made some difference in my kitty's life.  Did you know we should add digestive enzymes to our pets' diet if we're giving them manufactured foods, even if they're high quality pet foods?  Or, at the very least, if the pet exhibits signs of Pancreatitis.  Don't miss this:  There is also an article about  And, the final article is  Obviously, this is very important for pets that go outside.

Breast Cancer Risk

Oct 07, 2009 - 0 comments

Aunt Leatha was 57 when she died of a rare aggressive form of breast cancer.  She learned she had it only two years prior to dying from this form of breast cancer.  My cousins are related through both sets of parents, so my risk is the same as theirs is of developing this rare form of breast cancer.  They are more closely related than ordinary first cousins, since they are double first cousins.  

The symptoms I've had myself recently had me frightened.  I'm glad I had the mammogram, so my anxiety level is greatly reduced now that I know nothing abnormal showed up in the test.

Check out the Birman

This week's Cat Age tip is actually the profile of the Birman with a link to the page description on the Cat Fancier's Association.  Check it out.  You'll be glad you did.  It's a beautiful cat that is said to originate from Burma.  There is a legend associated with this breed that both Cat Age and The Cat Fancier's Association talked about that talks about its origin.  I don't believe the legend, but this is a gorgeous long-haired cat and the description says that its hair doesn't mat, unlike other long-haired breeds of cats.  The cat is supposed to look like it's wearing white gloves.

Cat health information source

health information

I signed up for these newsletters from Cat Age quite a long time ago.  The website is from the same people who write Real Age, which comes from the program called "The Doctors".  They have useful information for cat owners through their "tip of the week".  This week the subject is about When Cats Have Senior Moments, which described Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome (CDS) which is a form of kitty dementia.  Some weeks the newsletter profiles a specific breed of cat.  Often the newsletter discusses topics of cat health like it did this week.  I still haven't figured out why I can't get the link to highlight in blue, even though Savas told me how.  But, you can copy and paste into your web browser to see the website I just mentioned.
