Can CBD Dog Treats Help to Ease Your Dog’s Ageing-Related Issues?

>> Jun 19, 2018


Pet owners are always buying treats for their fur babies to keep them happy. However, as the pets age, it will take a lot more than treats and tummy rubs to keep them in good spirits. It is not easy to watch your once happy and active fur friend age as it most often comes with pain and discomfort.

Well, there isn’t much you can do about the ageing; it is inevitable. However, you can help ease the pain and discomfort that is associated with the ageing process. The big question is… how?

Let’s journey back to the issue of treats. You can replace the usual dog treats with CBD dog treats which are fortified with extracts from the hemp plant. There is a lot you can learn from sites such as honestpawsCBD dog treats and other CBD sites.

CBD Dog Treats and Biscuits
Scientists have for a long time known about a compound in the hemp plant known as cannabidiol. It is mostly referred to by the abbreviation CBD. Cannabidiol or CBD is highly rated for its ability to ease chronic pain caused by chronic illnesses such as cancer, as well as resolving issues related to mental health. CBD helps dogs with a variety of issues like:
·         Separation anxiety
·         Joint and hip pain
·         Arthritis

These issues are mostly linked to old age and stress. Many dog treats are not made with ingredients that would be of benefit to the dog in the long run. They often use cheap fillers and ingredients, not forgetting preservatives that may be more injurious than beneficial in the long run.

Benefits of Cannabidiol
Experts list the following as benefits of the cannabidiol compound for your dog:
·         Anti-inflammatory
·         Anticonvulsant
·         Antioxidant
·         Antiemetic
·         Anxiolytic
·         Antipsychotic

CBD is therefore the perfect compound forthe treatment of conditions such as:
·         Neuroinflammation
·         Epilepsy
·         Oxidative injury
·         Nausea and vomiting
·         Anxiety
·         Schizophrenia
As such, it would seem that dog treats and biscuits fortified with cannabidiol are the perfect fit for your ageing dog. Nothing pains a pet parent as much as reading pain in your dog's eyes, and not being in a position to ease it. Moreover, a hitherto boisterous and happy dog reduced to just lying around and sighing sadly is heartbreaking.

If there are no life-threatening ailments that require the veterinarian’s attention, maybe changing up the dog treats would work to ease your dog’s discomfort. You may not be able to access the CBD dog treats from your usual outlet if the marijuana laws in your area are stringent; but it would not hurt to ask. Your supplier may know where you can access the treats, or advise you to talk to your dog’s vet about it.

It is highly unlikely that CBD fortified treats will make your dog high, but you should explore sites like honestpaws CBD treats and others that highlight CBD issues to be better informed about how your beloved mutt is likely to react to it.

Tempered glass is a good choice for reasons of safety, and you can install pet doors on it

>> Jun 18, 2018


Pet doors are an excellent choice for keeping homes clean as the pet can move out to relieve itself whenever the need arises. Moreover, pet doors make pets more independent as they can move in an out of homes without seeking any assistance in opening the door. It is a win-win situation for you and your pet when you install glass pet doors Perth. You can make your life easy and also for your pet by installing a pet door conveniently on a glass window or glass sliding door, depending on what suits you best.  When the dog is free to move around the house on its own, its ability to keep vigil also goes up many times.  If you hear the dog barking somewhere outside the home, you know that it is calling for attention to some incidence with which it is not familiar.

Tempered glass for patio dog door
Some people use tempered glass or toughened glass on patio doors and sometime later want to install a pet door on it. Tempering is the process of adding more strength to glass, and it is done during manufacturing. Once a glass undergoes the process of strengthening, it becomes so strong that you cannot even scratch or dent it, forget about cutting. For installing pet doors on the tempered glass at a later date, you have to replace the entire glass. The glass company takes the size of the doors and get the glass cut to size to accommodate the pet door within the patio door before tempering it. You can retain the old glass so that if sometime you do not need the pet door any more, you can refit the old glass.

Pet door in the double glazed unit
If you are planning to fix a pet door to a double glazed unit, a door or window comprising of two glasses with separated by some gas or vacuum for better insulating effect, then you must know that it is not possible to cut the glass.  Just as for tempered glass, you have to order a fresh set of DGU (double glazed unit) with pet door already fitted to it.

Distinguishing tempered glass from ordinary glass
In many places, the use of tempered glass is an obligation for property owners for reasons of safety. However, you cannot make out whether the glass is toughened or not from its looks. All glasses look the same, but toughened glass would have a distinct mark at one corner (etched or sandblasted) that could be an emblem displaying the safety standard symbol along with the name of the manufacturer.  Another way of knowing if the glass is tempered is to look at the glass in sunlight through polarised glasses. If you see lines stretching across its surface or shady, dark spotsit is a sign of toughened glass.

The most unfailing test to know if the glass repairer is using toughened glass is to ask them to cut it. If the glass does not cut, it has to be toughened glass.

10 Best Fun Games and Activities to Do with Your Child This Summer




What do you envision when you hear the word “summer”?

Ask almost any parent or adult and many of us will immediately picture long days spent by the swimming pool, afternoons playing baseball, and hazy nights catching fireflies. Unfortunately, our children may be anticipating hours of gaming or binge watching their favorite series- all of which don’t involve a lot of family interaction, outdoor time, or physical activity during the upcoming days of their summer breaks. Thankfully, with a little creative thinking we can keep our children engaged by finding fun games and activities to do together this summer.

To keep your summer from becoming a bummer, we have compiled the following guide showcasing the 10 best fun games and activities to do with your child this summer:

Have a campout.

Summer is the perfect time to take a child camping or at least set up the tent in the backyard to spend a night under the stars. Camping provides the perfect excuse to power down all of our electronics and devices to enjoy each other’s company. Just remember to come prepared with flashlights, fixings for s’mores, and some entertaining stories to tell around the fire. 

Grow a garden.

Planting a traditional garden or trying your hand at container gardening is a fun activity to do with your child this summer. Gardening is a great form of exercise, introduces children to science and biology concepts like photosynthesis, builds their immune systems, gets children outside, yields healthy veggies and fruit harvests to eat, and so much more!

Go on a treasure hunt.

Create an account at Geocaching.com to locate geocaches near you. Bring a pen to sign the log when you find the secret stash and a small token to leave for the next person to find. If geocaching isn’t for you, create epic treasure hunts for the whole family by going old school and writing clues which take your child around the house, backyard, or  town for a fun day out. The possibilities are endless and it gets everyone exploring outside together.

Raise a hideout.

This summer, with your help of course, allow your kids to build their own fort or hideout to allow children to find a nook of their own to spend hours reading, telling stories, or playing. Try growing a bean teepee to create a natural hidden room of their own in the yard. 

Build your own outdoor movie theater.

Older children can use some science know-how to bring an outdoor movie theater to life by creating a projector using a smartphone and some common household items like a shoebox. After the projector is created, attach a white sheet to a large outdoor wall, pop some popcorn, and spread out some blankets to enjoy movies outside during the summer evenings.

Build and maintain your own little library.

Most children love to use tools to build items. Help plan and build a small house which can hold previously read books to be used as a free library in your community. After it is built, place the little library in an easy accessible place in your yard or get permission to put it in a local park.
Create your own water attractions.

Water and summer go hand-in-hand. Unfortunately, it’s not always convenient to take the kids to the local splash pad or waterpark. Instead, challenge a child to build a water wall using items like funnels, recycled bottles, hoses, and nozzles to make their own water play area for hours of wet fun.

Design and build a miniature golf course in your backyard.

Assign each family member to design one or two holes to create a miniature golf course in the backyard. This will provide a creative outlet and allow the family to play a few games of putt-putt golf together in the evenings.

Feed the birds.

Build or purchase bird feeders to place in your yard. Everyday make sure they are filled and then document the different types of birds you notice visiting your yard. Children will enjoy taking care of the animals and watching their feathered friends.

Make your own bubbles.

Try a variety of different recipes and experiment with ways to make bubbles. This can range anywhere for making gigantic bubbles with hula hoops, using colanders, bending wire hangers into shapes, and even placing a wash rag on the end of a cut pop bottle to create a “snake” of foam bubbles. Depending on the ages of the children, you can even get creative using dry ice to do fun science experiments with bubbles. Just use caution and keep the activities geared towards your child’s age and development.
