Posted By : Guest Filed Under : Rabbits | Guinea Pigs | Chinchillas | Birds | Degus | Gerbils | Dogs | Cats | Pet Remedy | Ferrets | Hedgehogs
Pet Remedy is now available in South Africa at speciality pet retailers and veterinary clinics. It is perfect for calming stressed pets. It works alongside your pet's brain’s natural ‘messengers’ called neurotransmitters, which work by telling the nerve receiving the message either to calm (via GABA pathway) or get ‘fired up’. In times of stress or anxiety the nerves get over stimulated, which leads on to the many different signs of stress we see in our pets.   The special Pet Remedy blend of essential oils is valerian based and works alongside these natural relaxation pathways to help calm the nerves of anxious or stressed pets. Always consult your vet if your pet shows signs of stress or you observe any behavioural changes. Suitable for all mammals, birds, & reptiles; including cats, dogs rabbits, rodents, horses, and parrots… Starts to help immediately Helps calm your pet without sedating Helps stressed pets bec..

Cermedia Launches MarinePure GEMS
Posted By : Guest Filed Under : Fish | Aquarium Filters | MarinePure | Marine Aquariums | Filter Media
Cermedia has been receiving many requests for a MarinePure media designed to work in smaller aquariums. Just this month, Cermedia made an announcement to us that they are meeting this demand with a new product called, MarinePure GEMS.   Made with the same formula as their popular 1.5” SPHERES, the GEMs are approximately ¾” in diameter. GEMs will be packaged in attractive hexagonal shaped boxes containing 90 grams of media. We think the product shape and box shape look pretty cool and will stand out on aquarium store shelves. Each box contains more than 1,450 square feet (135 square meters) of accessible surface area. MarinePure GEMS are the perfect size for canister filters, hang on the back filters or nano-tank filter systems. This amount of media is good for systems up to 70 gallons (260 litres) in size. They will be the perfect solution for ammonia and nitrite elimination and most users will also see better control of nitrates with the use of this.. [More] marinepuregemsmedia.jpg

Muesli Is Biggest Killer of Rabbits & Guinea Pigs
Posted By : Guest Filed Under : Nutrition
It is really astonishing that there are many rabbit and guinea pig owners in South Africa that are not aware about the importance of hay. Maybe this is because many of our local pet stores and grocery shops dedicate their shelves to commercial muesli diets, but offer little space for quality feeding hay products. Unfortunately, muesli diets have long been regarded as rabbit and guinea pig food at certain pet stores and supermarkets. However, nothing could be further from the truth.   In 2013, a scientific study revealed by Professor Anne Meredith from University of Edinburgh highlighted the dangers of muesli diets. When this news came out, hundreds of pet stores across the world removed rabbit and guinea pig muesli from their shelves. Muesli is severely detrimental to a rabbit, guinea pig and chinchilla’s health. Not only is it difficult to digest, it is also unsuitable for oral hygiene. And those are two areas of well being that our pets are ill advised to compromi.. [More] guineapigslovelongstemhay2.jpg

Keeping Ferrets as Pets
Posted By : Guest Filed Under : Ferrets
Like a cat, most ferrets can be trained to use a litter tray. Like a dog, they’re playful and can even be taken for walks on a lead. They also like to sleep for up to 20 hours a day. Could ferrets be the perfect pets for you? Images of ferret-like animals on leashes have been discovered on the walls of Egyptian tombs, which suggests that these smart, slinky little carnivores have been human companions for thousands of years. It’s thought that they were first introduced to Britain around 2,000 years ago by the Romans.   Captivatingly curious and bristling with intelligence, ferrets are domesticated animals – which means they have been adapted from wild species (most likely the European polecat and the Steppe polecat) by humans to fulfil specific requirements. For centuries, ferrets have been effective hunting partners, highly skilled in the art of flushing out rabbits from burrows. As pets, they are endlessly entertaining and respond well to human interactio.. [More] ferretbabies.JPG

Is Too Much Ball Throwing Stressing Your Dog
Posted By : Guest Filed Under : Pet Care | Dog Toys | Dogs
Most dogs love chasing and fetching a ball, but could too much of this classic canine game have negative consequences? Some experts believe that repetitive high-energy exercise boosts a dog’s adrenaline levels to the point where powerful chemicals, such as cortisol, are released.   Cortisol has many functions including working with certain parts of the brain to control mood, motivation, and fear. It’s best known as the stress hormone, helping fuel the ‘fight or flight’ instinct in a crisis. While very useful in times of danger, prolonged exposure to cortisol can lead to a number of health problems. According to canine behaviourist Sindhoor Pangal , there are cases where adrenaline in dogs is known to have remained in circulation for seven days and cortisol for up to as much as 40 days. Pangal explains it like this: “When an animal hunts in the wild, after that adrenaline rush, he sits down to eat his meal and lets the hormones wear off. But w.. [More] dogsplayfetch.JPG
