You may have heard that fostering is a great way to help homeless pets during the coronavirus crisis. It can make being socially distant feel a little less lonely, and go a long way to help your local shelter. Learn more about the foster process now.
Can’t foster? You can still help. The Petfinder Foundation is currently working overtime during the Coronavirus pandemic to identify and distribute funds to adoption organizations that need it most. Donate to them directly or reach out to your local shelter to help.
Across Purina, we are supporting organizations in the communities that we operate to help our friends and neighbors, and, of course, pets. We will remain steadfast in our commitment to provide pet food, treats and litter to our pet shelter and rescue partners across the country as their needs evolve with this crisis.
But we must and will do more.
We have selected three national nonprofit organizations to support during this crisis, each with initiatives to bring and keep pets and people together at a time when we need each other most.
Petfinder Foundation has organized a COVID-19 fund to provide shelters and rescue organizations with financial support to bridge financial gaps and help to keep their operations running to find loving homes for adoptable pets.
GreaterGood.org’s Rescue Bank program is providing pet food and essential supplies to pet shelters and individual pet owners in need, helping to keep pets with their families.
RedRover, our Purple Leash Project partner, is doubling down its efforts to offer emergency grants for domestic violence survivors with pets who are leaving their abusers during this volatile time, and introducing new emergency boarding grants to pet owners who are diagnosed with COVID-19 to ensure their pets are cared for while they recover.
As this global crisis develops, the helpers are emerging, and Purina is committed to standing tall. We are providing these partners and others with more than they have asked of us, and we ask those who have the means to help, to consider giving as well.
I am heartened by the stories of love and hope casting rays of light in an uncertain time in our history. Neighbors are helping neighbors, and pets are wearing many hats as our best friends have now become our home office mates, household entertainers and, of course, our furry therapists.
At Purina, family comes first. Please stay safe and diligent and know that we are in this together.
Want to know how to help homeless pets during this time? Fostering, adopting and donating are great ways to take action. You can also sponsor a pet directly via any pet’s profile page on Petfinder.com. Learn more from our friends at the Petfinder Foundation.
We are all in this together, including our pets. At Purina, we love pets. Yours and our own. This is an uncertain time, and we are doing everything we can to make sure your pets will have nutritious pet food in their bowls in the weeks and months ahead.
Our amazing associates are working in our U.S. plants (keeping a safe distance from each other) to make the litter, treats and foods that fuel your pet and continue to provide industry-leading quality and safety checks at every step for every batch. We know that increased demand has led to some empty shelves, and we will continue working hard to make sure you can find Purina products on shelves (or in your online carts) to meet your food and litter needs.
In addition, we are sending pet food, litter and support to our shelter partners who are working tirelessly to adapt and care for pets who are awaiting their forever families. We are humbled by the commitment of shelters and rescues to serve, and we will do our best to match their passion and support their selfless work. If you are looking for ways to help, here are a few ideas from our friends at Petfinder Foundation.
Like you, many of us are also working from home. And by having our pets by our side, we are reminded that our pets are so much more than pets, they are family. We’ve always believed that pets and people are better together, and this has never been truer than in trying times.
In the coming weeks, we will share tips and information from our pet experts to help you keep your pets happy, healthy and engaged. Because today and every day, life is #BetterWithPets.
We believe people and pets are better together. That’s why we’re proud to support Petfinder in its mission to help all adoptable pets find a home. Ready to meet the next four‑legged love of your life? Check out the adoptable pets on their website now.
In my 32 years of practice, there was one trending concern among my clients that was frequently communicated. This concern, […] The post Obesity: Are We Loving Our Dogs to Death? appeared first on Groomer to Groomer – Pet Grooming News, Stories, and Videos…..read more below!@edenzone
One trending concern among my clients that was frequently communicated. This concern, expressed in many ways, almost always translated to this bold statement: “My dog is getting fat and I can’t understand why, because he is a picky eater.” Now, to most people, this problem of obesity correlates directly to overfeeding; however, there are several other causes that factor in. Can we, as humans, all rely on the same diet to maintain our healthiest body weight, regardless of lifestyle, activity level, age, etc.? The answer is no. So why would we think otherwise with our dogs?
Many clients would state that they feed their dogs two cups of food a day, not understanding the reason for weight gain. Rather than make a blanket statement that two cups is right for your dog, I would prompt a conversation asking about the lifestyle, age and activity level of the dog. Also, what type of food are you providing for your dog? There are various factors that come into play when determining the cause of the weight gain in our canine companions.
To feed a dog correctly, one should calculate the kilocalories that your individual dog should eat (including snacks) and then adjust it accordingly for activity. My benchmark statement is, “you should take what the directions state on the bag and drop it by 10%, then adjust in accordance to how the dog does”. Many of the recommendations on the bag are excessive. Dog food manufacturers have done an acceptable approximation of food needed for the weight of the dog; however, they are also in the business to sell dog food, therefore, in my opinion, many of them continue on the lofty end of the scale on their suggestions. Many dog owners choose to free-feed their dogs and they will successfully thrive on the method; however, most of us are not that lucky. Some dogs naturally regulate their body weight and food intake, but many do not know when to stop eating. A substantial issue is human interference. A statement that I received from a client of a grossly obese dog was that his dog was such a picky eater that he had to add canned food to his diet to encourage him to eat (hmm?). Top dressing (adding canned food or goodies) is a common tool many owners do to “love” their dog into obesity. Another common error is providing several different dog foods so the dog doesn’t get “bored”. Boredom is more of a human concern (and sometimes a cat one) more so than a dog issue. If consistency is maintained, then we will see a reduced issue with obesity, because dogs would eat out of need, not out of want. The further you vary their diet, the more they will crave variation—ultimately leading to progressive weight gain. Variation can also be detrimental if you have a dog with food allergies, because the more proteins the dog is exposed to, the greater the chance of an allergy development. Several clients believe that, in order to benefit from the lack of nutrition in certain foods, it is necessary to supplement with alternate foods. This common error by assumption can be avoided by feeding your dog a high quality food from the start. In the modern era, most of our diets are nutritionally sound—at least on paper. The substantial issue is the bioavailability. In the past, many of the diets were animal tested (as listed on the AAFCO statement); however, because of the increased costs of animal testing, a majority have fallen back into the formulated category (as listed on AAFCO statement). This means that the diet meets the qualifications (nutritionally) based on a computer model, but crucially no guarantee that it does in reality (bioavailable). Alternating diet to solve this issue is most definitely not the answer because there is no way of truly balancing the diet in correlation to the deficiency—unless you can pinpoint the exact insufficiency. Visit our website at https://www.edenzone.net
Another area many consumers are not aware of is how things are listed on the AAFCO (American Feed Control Officials) statement, which has led to confusion. The AAFCO statement is on every bag of food and is important to be aware of and educated on. The three main categories from the AAFCO statement (in addition to animal tested and formulated) are the life stages in which the food is designed for. The two categories of the past were adults (not senior), puppies and pregnant bitches. Recently, another stage has been added which is for ALL LIFE STAGES. In order to get this classification with AAFCO, these diets must meet the most stringent criteria, which is the nutritional benefits needed for puppies and pregnant bitches (why not just say that?). So unbeknownst to many consumers, they are feeding their older dog food that is geared towards puppies, thus adding to the obesity issues.
The most consistent issue I found in my years of practice was not the food, but the habitual supplementation of treats within the diet. For years, one influential manufacturer convinced us that by providing their treats to our dogs, we could keep their teeth squeaky clean. Great marketing, but no scientific evidence to back up the claim. Unfortunately, the consumers fell into this propaganda trap and the treats were labeled as beneficial. This of course led to the assumption that, if one treat was beneficial, then additional treats would be even more effective. This translated to every member of the family giving Fido an unnecessary number of treats and now, unknowingly, the dog was provided with significantly more than its recommended daily calorie requirement. Helping our canine companions maintain a healthy weight is very important for their longevity. Many small dogs die from the secondary effects of obesity, which almost always manifest into heart and lung issues. Numerous, if not a majority of, large dogs are euthanized due to arthritis causing back and hip issues, which are exacerbated by obesity. We need to love our dogs to the absolute fullest, but with praise and quality time, not with food. ✂️ Dr. Cliff Faver graduated with a BS in Biology/BA in Chemistry before getting a Veterinary degree in 1987.

Litter Training Your Rabbit
People have the idea that rabbit will litter all over the house. But to the contrary, rabbits make wonderful house pets. They’re great companions, and can be litter box trained.
Keep in mind….It’s a good idea to get your rabbit spayed/neutered in order to ease territorial feelings. If you choose not to spay/neuter your rabbit. There is no way to stop the urge to mark their territory.
Below is a list of steps for litter training your new rabbit.
Use at least 3 topless cat litter boxes. You can also use a a shallow storage tub.
Shallow large litter box, 3 pack
Here at Edenzone pets we have exactly what is needed to potty train your rabbit. We're offering a 3 pack of litter boxes,shipping included
For litter, use recycled paper litter such as Yesterday’s News. Make sure to use only paper litter. (Unscented) Shreded newspapers can be used as well. This litter will neutralize any unpleasant urine odors. Do not use clay-based or clumping litter because of the potential harm to your rabbits’ respiratory system. Also avoid wood shavings of any kind.
Carefresh all natural paper litter ( unscented) 30 L . Shipping included
Put a thin layer of litter at the bottom of the box. It should be just enough to absorb wetness. Use just a little because you will need to dump the litter everyday and too much is a waste of litter.
Nylon cat/rabbit leash
Small nylon collar, lightweight, various colors, no-slip closure, shipping included
Rabbits like to eat hay and potty at the same time. So to promote good litter box habits, place hay either directly in the box over the litter or place it in a hay box next to the litter box. If you use a hay box, position it so the rabbit must hop into the litter box in order to reach the hay.
KAYTEE Natural Hay Manger
The is a great hat manger for litter training your rabbit, 6x2x5 inches. Fits into the box without taking up all the space your rabbit needs.shipping included.
It’s easiest to develop good litter box habits in rabbits by limiting their space at first. Use a puppy pen to confine your rabbit to one area, even if you intend to give him/her free reign of your home eventually. This allows your bunny to get acclimated to the area in the beginning. Once your bunny consistently uses the litter box, you can gradually expand the area. If your rabbit starts “forgetting” to use the litter box, then limit the space again until good habits resume.
Here are a few other tips for those stubborn, “outside-the-box” bunnies:
If accidents occur, mop up urine with a paper towel and pick up stray poop and place both in the litter box. This helps get the message across that the litter box is the place that they should do their business. Keep in mind that rabbits are generally not 100% perfect with their litter box. Sometimes they leave a few droppings next to the box, or they urinate over the edge of their box. This is normal, so placing a plastic mat under their litter box or putting the litter box on a tile floor makes it easier to clean up these little mistakes.
Nylon cat/rabbit leash
This lightweight short length leash is just right for rabbits and cats. Shipping included
Be patient and persistent. Litter training takes time, especially if your rabbit has learned bad habits. It takes a while to retrain them. If you can see they’re about to go outside their litter box (they may lift their tail or sometimes they sort of shimmy down in a seated position right before they go), try to pick them up and put them in the litter box or corral them in. This is often times easier said than done of course.

This lightweight nylon cord with hooks is great for outside trips with your bunny. Shipping included
If your bunny is insistent on going in one corner of the room, sometimes it’s easier to give in to their stubbornness, and place a litter box in that corner. Sometimes when rabbits consistently choose another place to go, they are trying to tell you that that’s where they want to go.
If your rabbit is pooping/spraying pee everywhere, this is probably due to your rabbit marking his territory. It’s a good idea to get your rabbit spayed/neutered in order to ease territorial feelings.
Sometimes rabbits deliberately pee on your couch or bed because they’re showing you who’s Top Bunny in the house. You should correct their misconception immediately.
Litter training your pet rabbit takes patience and persistence. But in the end, you’ll have a wonderful companion to share your home with.
Litter Training Supply List
Litter box A few shallow storage containers works well. Or you may opt for a few medium-sized cat litter boxes.
Rabbit-safe litter Opt for a recycled newspaper pellet litter such as Yesterday’s News (unscented).
Hay Purchase hay by the bale from a local farmer or at your local Walmart
Hay feeder Placing a hay feeder next to the litter box so the rabbit has to hop into the box in order to eat is helpful in establishing good litter box habits.
Puppy pen Puppy pens help limit your rabbit’s space so that he/she can get acclimated to the area and get used to going in the litter box.
