Holiday Proofing For Your Pets

Sharing is one of the most beloved aspects of the holidays, and it's fine to share some turkey and other goodies with your pets. However, the caution about feeding "scraps" remains in effect - do not give your cat or dog any dinner discards, like turkey or ham bones, or fatty items like turkey skin. These can cause serious tummy upset; in dogs especially, too much fat can trigger life-threatening pancreatitis. After dinner, be sure the garbage is secure from any sneaky paws that may come prowling after the rest of the family is asleep!

Pets Are Good For Us!

Another day, another study on the benefits of companion animals. A team of psychologists from Miami University and St. Louis University surveyed ordinary pet guardians to find out just what kinds of social and psychological benefits pets bring. The team wanted to know if pets were as good for ordinary people as they are for people with serious health challenges. A survey done as part of the project assessed depression, loneliness, self-esteem, illness, health, fitness and exercise, and "happiness".

Questions and Answers from the Customer Care Cabin
Does Vitamin E need to be added to fish oil supplements to help with absorption?

No! Vitamin E is not required for absorption of fats. Its use in fish oil is primarily as a preservative.

In cats, a certain amount of Vitamin E along with any oil is needed to prevent a painful disease called steatitis (inflammation of fat). This used to occur in cats that were fed a lot of plain canned tuna, so it was technically a fish oil issue. Since most cats today eat commercial pet food, it is much less common now. I've only seen one case of steatitis, and sadly, for her, it was too late to reverse.

It is also thought by some that excessive intake of fish oil may deplete the body of Vitamin E, though there's not much evidence to back up the claim; in any case, adding it to the fish oil is an easy preventative.
