‘Our’ Pets Around The UK

We had the pleasure to travel the UK for half a year and made friends with a lot of dogs, a few cats, a rabbit and chickens during our house sits. We give all of them space on our pet sitting gallery of the UK. A colourful bouquet of characterful animals.  Continue reading ‘Our’ Pets Around The UK

House Sit In Scotland With Chewing Monster

Where is Killearn? I thought, and went on Google Maps to see, if this house sit would be something for us. We had been contacted by a mother of three children which house sitter had let her down near term. Luckily we had a gap in our house sitting agenda and were able to help out as we were already in Scotland. ‘Oh wow!’ I exclaimed. ‘It’s only half an hour drive and almost in Lochlomond And Trossachs National Park. That’s awesome!’ Continue reading House Sit In Scotland With Chewing Monster

My Beagle Ate a Tomato!

Did your Beagle eat a tomato? Not sure if the tomato is safe or not? In general, ripened tomatoes are safe for your Beagle if given in small quantities.

However, you must be careful that your Beagle does not have access to unripened tomatoes. If your Beagle eats a tomato from a vine, make sure he does not eat the leafy greens as these parts contains most of the toxins. Tomatoes and potatoes are members of the Solanum species and are part of the nightshade family of plants, which contains toxic alkaloids that can be harmful to pets.

If these toxins are eaten in large quantities your Beagle may start to show signs of excessive drooling, vomiting, diarrhea, drowsiness, confusion, weakness, behavior changes, dilated pupils, or even a slowed heart rate. If your Beagle has any of these symptoms, call your veterinary clinic immediately.

My Dog is Afraid of Thunder

Did you know that many different dog breeds both big and small are afraid of loud noises like thunder? For instance, some dogs are afraid of thunder and even lightning. This is a common fear, but sometimes the fear can get a little out of hand or extreme. Signs of fear and anxiety may include your dog simply hiding under the bed or sitting close to you.

Extreme anxiety may include your dog pacing, working himself into a sweat, trembling and becoming frantic. One way to help your dog remain calm is to make sure you reward calm behavior at all times.

When your dog panics over a storm, try to calm him with a command and then reward him.

Petting a fearful dog or even allowing the dog to sit close rewards and encourages the behavior instead of addressing it.

If the fear gets out of hand ask your vet for advice.
