Wordless Wednesday




***
Our Tip of the Day:
Be cognizant and careful of the fact that many of today's manufactured products, such as pet toys and treats, contain parts and pieces and ingredients that are not all that natural or organic. Some such manufactured products could potentially lead to reactions in some dogs and cats, such as dermatological or other allergic reactions if an animal is sensitive to any particular component of a product. For example, some toys may contain plastics to which some animals can be sensitive. Also keep in mind that some products contain certain additives, such as artificial flavors and dyes, that could potentially cause reactions in sensitive dogs or cats. (My firsthand experience: I once had the nerve to buy Astrid a chew bone that was bacon flavored and unnaturally orange in color. Within a day, her lips had started to form swellings and sores that obviously itched, and her vet had to prescribe a medicated ointment to clear up the reaction.) Be aware of what all unnatural components might make up a particular toy or treat. Try to always look at the labels on the products you buy for your furbabies, and consider investigating whether certain items are natural or organic. No matter what type of product it is, though, it's always wise to keep an eye on your furbaby after he or she tries out something new. After all, better safe than sorry!

Astrid, that sure looks like a great chew stick. You better get back to chewing it now. Happy Wednesday to all of you.

Astrid is a pretty girl. I am sorry she had an allergic reaction , I am glad you caught it in time and took her to the vet.

Sweet Astrid, this is such a beautiful picture of you. It looks like you love that chew toy lots.

Good tip about being aware of the stuff that manufacturers put into their products. How sad that poor Astrid had that reaction to the orange chew bone. Glad she's okay, though!

I love the look in Astrid's eyes. She definitely looks lost in thought. Would love to know what she is thinking about.

I tend to be a bit paranoid and read all labels. LOL.
