Raising A Pet Coatimundi: Tips On Feeding And Others

When you’re raising a pet coatimundi at home, you have to do some serious studying and research as to how you can properly nurture these kind of exotic pets. Even though, they’re going to be house pets like your usual cats and dogs, you have to know that they are a lot different from the latter.

In this article, we will be looking at different tips on raising a pet coatimundi at home. Let’s start with feeding. When baby coatis are already old enough, you can get them from their mother already so that you can start feeding them through the use of a bottle. When you start bottle feeding your baby pet coatis, it’s a good thing to start with puppy replacer milk. You can use a cup of this and mix it with 2 cups of water. To make it taste better, you can add a small amount of honey into the mix. At the start of weaning, baby coatis will often consume half to an ounce of milk during each feeding. You should feed them 4 times in a day. When they start getting used to feeding on the milk that you’re giving them, the amount that they consume per feeding will increase to an average of 2 to 3 ounces. Even though you may notice an increase in their appetite, it’s best that you don’t overfeed them. At the age of 6 to 8 weeks, your pet coatis may start developing loose stools. When this time comes, you should add in 1 tablet of Lactaid to each cup of milk that you use when mixing up their formula. Be sure to mix 24 hours in advance.

As your pets start growing bigger, you can shift them to Purina Puppy Chow until they grow into yearlings. During that time, you can then shift them to Purina Chow for Adult Dogs. Keeping these types of exotic pets inside large birdcages that have hammocks and blankets inside is really advisable. The hammocks and blankets will serve as their sleeping materials. When your pets start becoming active, you should see to it that the door of their cage is left open so that you can allow them to go in and out. In this way, they can play freely when they want to. After you feed them, it is best that you let them back in their cage so that they can do their thing and take a nap afterwards. These exotic animals are quite easy to paper train. They usually use a corner of their cage when they’re doing their business. However, like other types of pets, they will also make mistakes at times.

Coatis are known for their curious and active nature. They love moving around all the time except during nap time. When you have a pet coati at home, it’s like you have a 2 year old child who needs to be well guarded. You have to make your house child proof so that you can …

Ear Mite Remedies

Ear mites are nasty little surface parasites that commonly infect dogs, cats, rabbits, and ferrets. They live in and around the ears of these animals. They are the second most common external parasite that infects our pets (the flea has the top ranking of the most common). Unlike the flea, ear mites spend their entire lifecycle on an animal, and they spread through direct contact with another animal that is infected.

There are numerous symptoms that pets exhibit any time they have a problem with their ears. These include shaking their head, scratching at their ears, and areas of hair loss around the ear, caused by the pet scratching. The characteristic that distinguishes mites from other ear maladies is the thick, black, tar like substance (sometimes it is black, dry and flaky), that is found in the ear canal. Although veterinarians typically diagnose ear mites by performing a microscopic smear of the ear debris, the presence of mites is easy to detect when you know what this discharge looks like.

Do you wonder if ear mites cause discomfort in our pets? Imagine what it is like when you have that itching sensation inside your ear. You know, the one that sends you searching for a q-tip to stick in your ear in an effort to scratch it? Now just imagine that the itch is being caused by tiny little parasites crawling around in your ear, and that you are without the ability to do anything about it! It would most likely drive you crazy… and that is what a pet with mites in their ears must live with.

Getting rid of your pet’s ear mites takes time. While there are a lot of preparations to kill mites, some are prescription and some are over the counter, there is no “magic bullet” that will kill all mites overnight. I have not personally seen ANY medication that I could say that works any better than the others (and that includes the most expensive ear mite remedies sold through veterinarians!). In order to eliminate ear mites, there are three things that you must do.

You must treat ALL of the animals in your house by cleaning and treating the ears daily, sometimes for as long as 21 days. An oil based product for cleaning and treating the ears usually works best, since the oil will smother the mites and softens the black discharge in the ears, allowing for easier removal.

Since ear mites can and will crawl around on the skin outside of the ears, you should treat the skin of all pets also. This may include using a topical product, such as “Revolution”, sold through your veterinarian, or using natural home remedies, such as the ones for treating fleas.

It is highly recommended that you treat the indoor environment of your house at least once. Even though ear mites do not live very long once they are off of the animal, you do not want to risk contamination of your pet by …

Green Iguana Life Cycle and Characteristics

Green iguanas (Iguana iguana) are a reptile species that is found throughout much of Central and South America and in the Caribbean. This tropical creature does well in hot, humid areas, so it should be no surprise that colonies of iguanas that have descended from escaped pets are actually thriving in parts of Florida, too. The green iguana is one of the most common pet reptiles and also one of the largest reptiles that’s commonly kept as a pet.

Appearance of Green Iguanas

The green iguanas are born from eggs, and at the time they hatch they will be about 6-8 inches long. However, within a few years these cute little babies will grow into massive lizards of five to six feet in length. A fully adult iguana weighs an average of fifteen to seventeen pounds.

While juvenile iguanas are typically a bright green color, the name ‘green iguana’ isn’t always an exact fit. They can vary in shade from grayish to emerald green to brown. Their color will depend on their health and mood as well as the temperature and living environment.

You’ll notice that adult iguanas have a dewlap, or a flap of skin that hangs down under their chin which is especially noticeable on the males. They have a row of spines running down their neck and back, and also have a third ‘eye’ known as the parietal eye in the middle of their forehead. The parietal eye is sensitive to light and is associated with the pineal gland. It helps to regulate the iguana’s circadian rhythm and also hormone production for thermoregulation. Because of this, it’s important that pet iguanas are given periods of light and dark each day, typically 12 hours of light and 12 hours of dark.

Green Iguana Habitats

Green iguanas are arboreal lizards, meaning that they prefer to spend their time in the treetops of the jungles where they live. This behavior allows them to bask in the sunshine above the leaves, which is their main method of controlling their body temperature. It also affords them protection from predators, as their body color blends in well with the leaves and shadows. The female iguanas will leave the trees to dig burrows in the ground for laying their eggs. They prefer to live near water and are excellent swimmers. If predators come close, they’ll often make a quick escape by diving down into the water and swimming away.

Iguana Development

When iguanas mate, it takes about 65 days until the female is ready to lay her eggs. The number of eggs she’ll lay depends on the size of the iguana, but typically there will be from ten to thirty of them. Sometimes, females will share nests, especially in areas where there isn’t a lot of space for digging. Females are ‘hands-off’ mothers, and don’t guard their nests, although they will occasionally pop by to visit. The eggs will hatch about 90 days later.…

A Review of the Petsafe Wireless Dog Fence

Many of us with dogs would love to get a fence for our yard. That would allow our dog to have a nice place to run and play without all of the dangers from wandering outside the yard. Fencing in yards can be expensive and very difficult labor, especially for those who have a lot of ground to cover. That is where dog fence technology comes in. There are a few different types of dog fence systems, but we will look specifically at the PetSafe Wireless Dog Fence in this article.

The PetSafe Wireless Dog Fence goes by the model number PIF-300. This is the latest technology that PetSafe has made in the way of dog containment. This is a fantastic do-it-yourself system. For those people who are like me and want the easiest possible installation, this is the product for you. There are no wires to bury, no trenches to dig, and especially no holes for fence posts, concrete, nails, and all of the other things that installing a traditional fence require. With this system, if you can plug it in, you can set it up. The PetSafe Wireless Dog Fence is so portable, you can take it with you anywhere you go. This is great for people who have a cabin, or like to take their pet with them when they go places.

After you plug in the dog fence, all you have to do is set the range you want for your boundary. The system comes with flags to mark the edge of the boundary you set on the PIF-300. This system is the best on the market when it comes to this type of containment. It covers twice the range of any other wireless dog fence. With just one transmitter, you can cover an area up to 180 feet in diameter. That is plenty for most conventional yards. If you have a large area of ​​land you want to cover, the great thing about this dog containment product is that you can purchase additional transmitters which allow you to increase the area of ​​coverage. You can add more than two transmitters to this system. The only thing to remember when considering one of these containment products is that the transmitters are not waterproof, so each needs to be in a safe location where it is out of the weather.

The PetSafe Wireless Dog Fence is also great in the fact that it can be used with more than one pet. You can actually use it with an unlimited number of pets provided they all use the proper receiver collar, which are also available to you. It is also nice to know that the transmitters and collars are available separately just in case you need to replace part of the system and not all of it.

For those of us who like to camp or be outdoors, there are also power inverters available that allow it to be plugged in to your vehicle which is very nice …

Daily Disciplines for Effortless Success – Six Steps for Activating "The Secret" in Your Life

The first step to using Law of Attraction as presented in the movie The secret is to clarify exactly what you want. Remember-determine, write down and talk about what you do want, not what you do not want. Be as specific as possible. Once you have clarified what you want, do the following each and every day.

1. Morning Intention, Visualization and Releasing

As soon as you wake up in the morning, take about 5 minutes to focus your mind on your desires, goals and intentions. Start by sitting in a comfortable position, closing your eyes and visualizing your desires and goals as already being fulfilled. Spend 30 seconds to a minute on each of your core desires and goals. You can also take a few moments to visualize your day going exactly as you would like it to.

When you do this, you will often find negative limiting beliefs that are the result of negative programming from your childhood will come up. You may hear thoughts like "I could never afford that," "there's no way I'll ever get that," or "who am I kidding?" Coming up. If you do, use one of the many releasing techniques that are available (see the list below) to release the negative thought. Do not fight or argument with the thought; Just release it.

Remember to also spend several moments feeling the feelings you would feel if you had already demonstrated your desire in your life. The intensity of the feeling is what fuels the intensity of the attraction.

Powerful releasing techniques:

(Hale will be sharing his techniques when he speaks at my summer training
Breakthrough to Success.)

2. Use External Images to Keep you Focused on Your Desires and Goals

To keep yourself focused on what you want to manifest surround yourself with visual images of the things and experiences you want to attract into your life. There are many techniques you can use for this.

1) Cut out pictures of the things you wish to own (like your ideal car or home) and pictures that represent the experiences you want to have (like the perfect relationship, your ideal job, perfect health, being at your ideal weight, more Joy, inner peace or balance in your life) to remind yourself of how you want it to be. Tape them up where you will see them every day-on the mirror, the refrigerator, or your bulletin board. You can also scan them into your computer and make them into a screen saver or a continuously running PowerPoint program.

2) Combine your pictures and words that you cut out into a collage on a large piece of poster board.

3) Make a Dream Book by putting the pictures into a 3-ring binder pasted onto the pages or slid into plastic page protectors.

When you look at any of these pictures, do what Bob Doyle, who is featured in The …

Pet Birds From Australia – An Introduction to Rosellas

Of all native Australian birds used as pets the rosellas are amongst the most sought after. This is due to their wonderful variety of colouring, their size and their unique markings. Their scalloped feather markings on the back is what makes them unique in the avian world. There are several different species of rosella, all of them unique in their own way, and they all have similar requirements when used in aviculture.

Common in all rosellas is the scalloped pattern to the feathers on the back and all have distinctive cheek patches. A very colourful and medium sized parrot native to Australia and the surrounding islands. On the Australian mainland these colourful birds tend to inhabit areas of farmland, woodland, forests and suburban gardens and parks, in the coastal mountains and plains but not the outback. Specific breeds tend to inhabit a particular area. Most species of rosella live in large flocks in the wild but not all.It is commonly held that their name originates from the area of Australia in which they were first noticed by early pioneers, the Rose Hill area of Sydney.

The most common species appear to be: Western Rosella – smallest of the species with two subspecies itself and is found in south west Australia. Crimson Rosella – five subspecies and inhabiting east and south east Australia. Green Rosella – the largest species and native to Tasmania. Pale-headed Rosella – two subspecies and found in the eastern part of Australia. Eastern Rosella – three subspecies and although native to the eastern area of the country they are found in many regions including Tasmania and have been introduced to New Zealand where feral populations can be found. Northern Rosella – mainly found in the north as the name suggests but can also be seen in open savanna country and a few other areas, this one is also more likely to be found in small groups or just in pairs in the wild. All these are popular as pets.

An aviary is the best option when keeping rosellas in captivity as this ensures an environment as close to their natural habitat as possible. If an aviary is not an option then they will do OK in cages, as long as the cage is adequately large enough for their requirements. They will need to have regular exercise outside the cage however and should get the opportunity to have a fly around. These birds are not usually talkers and will mainly chirp & squawk, although they could learn a few unique sounds or the odd whistle. A single rosella will form a very strong bond with its owner.

An important warning with regards to keeping rosellas:

They are best kept alone or in pairs as they can be very aggressive towards each other if a lot are enclosed together, a strange thing about captive ones this is as they tend to live mainly in flocks in the wild. Whether kept in aviary or cage try to only have no …

5 Important Tips For Keeping Your Dog’s Paws Healthy

As part of our hygiene, we see to it that our nails are cleaned and trimmed regularly. We make regular appointments at the spa to get a foot massage. We love to pamper ourselves. The same goes with our pets – if you’re going to groom them, make sure you have their paws covered. Treat them like you would your own feet!

Here are 5 tips to follow when taking care of your pet’s paws:

Check for cracked pads

When they get too dry, the pads in a dog’s paws may crack and bleed. This needs to be treated immediately as it can be painful and can even make it difficult for your pet to walk. Purchase a good pad moisturizer specifically designed to treat dry paws. Don’t skimp and use human lotion – this has proven to soften the pads too much, resulting to more complications.

Treat cuts and scrapes immediately

Unless you’re the kind of dog parent that lets their pet wear shoes when walking outside, dogs basically go everywhere barefoot, that’s why it shouldn’t be a surprise when they show up with a cut or scrape in the pad of their paw. Clean the cut immediately to prevent infection. Clean it out with anti-bacterial wash, put some anti-bacterial cream then bandage the injured paw. Again, have it done by your vet if you find doing it by yourself difficult.

Groom the paws regularly

You can tell that your dog’s nails need to be trimmed just by the look of it. If you’re too anxious to clip your pup’s nails by yourself or if you find that keeping your pet still is difficult, it is ideal to have them done by your vet or a professional groomer. Don’t forget the hair between the pads – if not trimmed regularly they could cause painful matting. Be sure to also check for small debris that may be stuck in there.

Keep them off hot surfaces during summer time

A hot, sunny day is a good time for a walk with your pup. However, be sure to keep your pet’s paws protected from the heat by avoiding to walk on hot surfaces such as parking lots and sand. If he gets a blister or his paws got burned, gently wash with anti-bacterial soap then wrap with a gauze loosely.

Protect your dog’s paws during winter time

Stock up on paw moisturizers during winter as the cold can lead paws to crack and dry out. Also, people usually melt snow off sidewalks by using salt, de-icers and other chemicals which can be toxic for canines. They could easily pick up these chemicals after their walk, so be sure to wash their paws immediately when you get home. You can also opt to coat your dog’s paws with Vaseline to keep salt from getting into their pads.

Follow these simple tips to keep your pet’s paws healthy!…

Dog Halloween Costumes – Are You Serious?

When I first heard about dog Halloween costumes I burst out laughing. Who would go to the bother of dressing up their family dog ​​for Halloween? Ridiculous – pathetic, even – was my reaction. But then I wake hearing about Halloween costumes for dogs, and even pet Halloween costumes for other animals. I even heard about a pet goat being dressed up in a Halloween costume.

There was to be a reason for this strange infatuation with Halloween fancy dress costumes for pets.

Sure enough, I finally figured out what was going on. Kids had very quickly worked out that animals are popular ice breakers when you first meet up with strangers. Moreover, cute animals are irresistible. Dress the family pet up in Halloween costume and take it trick or treating and you have an instant conversation starter and attention getter. Possibly just about as effective as persuading Paris Hilton to tag along, only infinite easier. And what happens when you take your dog in costume from door to door and get all these strains going "ooh ahh" over your cute family pet? Of course, you guessed it, the chances of filling your Halloween treat bag just went up several notches.

From the point of view of Mom and Dad I can also see this is not such a bad idea either. Even a small dog is sensitive to danger, and quite likely to bark if there is any sign of trouble brewing on the dark streets as your children go about their trip or treating at Halloween. I would have to say having the family dog ​​along with the kids can only improve their safety. Children are also likely to be more responsible crossing the street and going other tricky places if they are responsible also for the safety of their pet. You would have to agree a small investment in a costume for the family dog ​​starts to make sense when you see it this way.

The choices you have when selecting your dog Halloween costumes are huge. Your family pet dog can be dressed up in a popular Dracula outfit too (you might find the dog version is renamed Dogula), and almost any costume theme you can think of: Superman, Zorro, Spiderman, Wonder Woman, Snow White, Raggedy Ann , And many other possibilities. …
