The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has released five expert tips on keeping pets safe during a disaster.
The ASPCA (https://www.aspca.org/) has activated its disaster response team in anticipation of potential evacuation, rescue, and sheltering needs before, during, and after the hurricane.
Pet owners are urged to take the following steps:
“It’s critical for pet owners to consider their animals when preparing for any disaster, and we strongly urge them to always bring their animals with them if they have to evacuate their home,” said Tim Rickey, vice president of ASPCA Field Investigations and Response team.
“The ASPCA stands ready to assist animals in Hurricane Irma’s path, but the first and best line of defense for a pet will always be a well-prepared owner.”
A dog can be a wonderful furend to anyone, but it’s important to keep your four legged family member’s health and happiness a top priority. Here are some useful tips.
Feeding: Choose proper food for your dog’s breed, size and age. While puppies needed to feed more often (3-4 times a day) , elder dogs need less (1 time a day) and different food to live healthy life. Also limiting people food will definitely be better. Please talk with your vet for feeding information for your furend.
Exercise and Play: Dogs need exercise to be healthy. Also exercise and play, stimulate their minds and avoid boredom. With choice of right toys such as OoMaLoo Dog Toys you may satisfy many of your dog’s instinctual urges to dig, herd, chew, retrieve and chase. Play keep them vital and alive.
Humane Society: Houston’s animals and pets need our help, too.
Hurricane Harvey hit Huston very hard, and those hurt by Hurricane Harvey need your help. Not just humans but our furends too.
They lost their home their families. Organization like Humane Society and Huston SPCA are working very hard to help them.

The Humane Society of the United States, Wings of Rescue, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), GreaterGood.org and other organizations are flying homeless dogs and cats from Texas shelters to facilities in other parts of the country to make room for the influx of thousands of homeless animals being picked up in the hurricane-devastated areas.
Please help if you can…
Short answer is yes with a but. Only safe candies for your dogs are the toy candies such as OoMaLoo handmade Candy Dog Toy.
Unfortunately all other candies are can cause several health problem for our furends. While eating a small amount of sugar or a sweet containing sugar is not extremely dangerous, it’s best to avoid feeding these kinds of foods to our dogs.
Pure sugar contained food can cause sever gas and diarrhea. Also please keep in mind that sugar free sweet stuff doesn’t mean healthy for our dogs. Most of the time sugar free means it contains Xylitol, a sugar-substitute. Xylitol is perfectly safe in people, but it can be deadly if ingested by a dog or cat. Xylitol causes a very severe drop in blood sugar that can happen within minutes after ingestion.
Another sweet which is perfectly good for humans but not our dogs is Chocolate. Chocolate is toxic to pets and can cause severe vomiting, diarrhea and seizures.

International Cat Day is a full 24 hours of recognition and veneration of one of humanity’s oldest and most beloved pets. The festivities were put together for the first time in 2002 by IFAW, the International Fund for Animal Welfare, among other animal rights groups, to celebrate the most popular pet on the planet.
An estimated 500 million cats are thought to be frolicking in neighbours’ gardens across the world, whichmeans that most every extended family is bound to have an aunt with more kittens than former husbands, whatever the country or climate. And that’s great, because owning a cat has been shown to improve mental health and to relieve stress, anxiety and depression. So when it’s raining cats and dogs outside and you don’t have someone to cuddle with, any black, ginger, Persian, Siamese, Burmese, Bengal, Shorthair, Munchkin, Balinese, RagaMuffin or any old stray cat will do the trick.

Long word short No! You shouldn’t share your ice cream with your dog unless you want to make them sick.
Dogs’ bodies are not designed to digest milk after they arepuppies. Since ice cream is made with milk, feeding your dog ice cream could lead to gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, or vomiting.
The second problem with ice cream is that it is loaded with sugar. Sugar is harmful to adult furends or Puppies. Giving too much sweet treats to your furend lead to getting overweight at least. And even the ice cream says it does not have sugar it means it has other sweeteners such as xylitol which can be more harmful then sugar for your four legged family member.
