What a great time to run a puppy mill! 🙈

Do millenials know about puppy mills? The overcrowding, filth, and using a female dog until she’s worn out?

These fawning articles about naive young people who are so happy that breeder in Pennsylvania or Ohio just “happened to have” a new litter of goldendoodles . . . https://nypost.com/2021/02/11/millennials-scramble-to-find-apartments-for-pampered-pandemic-pups/?utm_source=url_sitebuttons&utm_medium=site%20buttons&utm_campaign=site%20buttons

So much for buying ethically sourced products. Guess that only matters if you’re buying paper towels and coffee, not a pet.

Allergies and Covid

Here’s why they are linked.

People stay inside, hiding from the Covid monster.

It’s winter, so in much of the United States, windows are closed.

Poor ventilation + family pets = sneezing and wheezing

Don’t blame the pets. Humans are supposed to be the smart ones. We can figure out a solution.

  1. Open the windows! People used to sleep with the windows open, even in cold weather, to get the benefit of air circulation. Now we are afraid of the cold, but is sneezing and wheezing better than using an extra blanket.
  2. Wipe down the pets once day with a damp cloth.
  3. Drink a lot of water.
  4. Change your pillow case 3 times a week.

Good luck!

Why you MUST get your cat’s teeth cleaned

(if you can afford it.)

  1. bacteria coats cat’s teeth
  2. cat breathes in oral bacteria
  3. oral bacteria infects lungs
  4. asthma and inflammation?

The older, fatter or sicklier the cat, the more this matters.

Oh . . . . and for humans, this is also true.

“Shapira said the link between periodontitis and lung diseases including asthma, pneumonia and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is well established.” from article link below.
