Acupuncture and Chiropractic for Pets in Newburgh, NY

images10

A new advancement in the field of veterinary medicine is the use of acupuncture and chiropractic for pets. This complementary care option is already well accepted.

Acupuncture is the oriental practice of inserting thin needles into the skin for therapeutic purpose. Acupuncture stimulates the release of endorphin, a natural substance, that is considered to raise the pain threshold and gives a sense of euphoria. That is why people and animals feel relaxed after the session.

Chiropractic is a health care discipline that uses manual therapy. A chiropractic examination points to any partial dislocation existing in the body. Chiropractic adjustment corrects the dislocation and enables the nerves to function normally again.

Both are accepted as alternative therapies and have many successful applications. But how successful are acupuncture and chiropractic for pets?

It has been noted that most dogs and cats feel comfortable undergoing the treatment. Occasionally there are discomforts but these are quite rare and are temporary. Most dogs and cats do not feel much pain. If the animal reacts negatively to acupuncture needles, they are usually treated by laser acupuncture. Acupuncture and chiropractic for pets hardly ever require sedation.

An application of the treatment, one to three times, significantly improves problems of the spine. At the second visit, the practitioner already knows how many and how often treatment is required. Limb arthritic treatment may require an initial series of three to six treatments a week apart, and then rapidly decreasing the frequency, to only one to two 1-2 times every year. A long term acupuncture effect happens when gold bead implantation is given for limb arthritis. Gold bead application is also used in the treatment of spinal arthritis. Another useful treatment for arthritis is to use ear staple implantation which is also a quick and effective remedy.

Depending on the physical state of the pets, treatment may be conducted weekly. More serious conditions require twice or three times weekly. After the treatment, some pets sleep more often for the first 24 to 48 hours and will feel a bit achy. These reactions are part of the healing process of the animals. It will require a while for the effects of the therapy to heal your pets body. Acupuncture and chiropractic for pets must be done repeatedly to achieve full effect.

There are times after the acupuncture or spinal adjustment when the problem will become worse for a while. This is simply the way the body reacts and adjusts to the change which has taken place. Some animals responding this way react well to chiropractic and/or acupuncture if the treatment is followed up. There are occasions when your pet may need anti-inflammatory medicine for a few days after treatment. Positive result of the acupuncture and chiropractic for pets may not be evident until six to eight weeks after treatment.

In many places in the United states today, acupuncture and chiropractic for pets are accepted and practiced but only licensed veterinarians are allowed to perform these service to your beloved pets.

What’s Up With Celtic Animals And Their Symbolism

images11

Celtic animal symbolism is a part of Celtic lore that many people have been analyzing as they try to understand the meaning placed on these animals by the Celtic people. Since there are no written accounts provided for us by the Celts, understand that this information is the result of many different interpretations.

Because of the fascination with this animal symbolism, people love to wear it through their Celtic jewelry. This is one area of Celtic designer jewelry that is quite popular. Let’s take a quick look at some of the animals that are linked to Celtic lore.

The Celtic dog: The ancient people held their dogs in high esteem and as a necessity to their way of life. Dogs were present with them while hunting and, in general, throughout life as a close companion. The dog symbolized good health.

The Celtic cat: Knowledge of the mystic world is held by the cat. They were seen as a guardian to what was called the Otherworld, or the eternal. Cats were seen as intelligent and crafty and bearers of an internal knowledge regarding the unseen.

The Celtic goose: Since geese were quite common over in Ireland, it would seem natural that this animal would have meaning to the ancients. The thought of “home” is symbolized by the goose. Geese always come back to the same area each spring and since the Celts were often involved with war, they looked at the goose as a reminder of home. They also saw this animal as a representation of changes in our moods or heart. In addition, the idea of “oneness” was symbolized by geese.

The Celtic duck: The duck represented gracefulness and agility as well as resourcefulness and honesty. Since ducks are quite sensitive to all that is around them, they also represented sensitivity to the ancient people.

The Celtic bull: Wealth and abundance is represented here. The ancient people used the bull for food and it represented good times in terms of abundant living. Also, the bull symbolized strength in terms of sexuality. This symbol was used in the bedroom to help bring the correct mentality for sexual strength. It represented fertility in women and virility in men. Another representation was that of being stubborn, being of strong will and/or being uncompromising in personality.

The Celtic dolphin: Luck is quite often associated with the dolphin. Since the ancient people most often saw dolphins off their shores whenever the seas were calm and easygoing, this idea of luck or good times came to be represented. Friendship and intelligence are represented by the dolphin in addition to idea of luck. The Celts liked the dolphin, also, for its ability to be fast swimmers in the sea and for its overall cleverness.

How Animals Are Formed

images21

All living things, whether plants or animals, are made up of tiny particles called cells. There is a separate article about the cell in this encyclopedia. Here we will pause only to explain that the cells that form animals are usually very small-it would take several thousand of them to measure an inch, so that they cannot be seen without a microscope- and that many millions or billions of them may be needed to make the body of a single animal. The simplest of all animals may have only a single cell.
Such animals are called protozoans. Most of them live in water, and some have shells, even though they are so small themselves. Many are parasites, which means they cannot live by themselves, but must live in the bodies of other animals, or in plants. The article on ameba, in another volume of this encyclopedia, tells how one of these one-celled animals lives. Some protozoans, small as they are, are very important as food for other animals; they are found in “plankton,” which is a mass of tiny plants and animals drifting in the sea. Plankton is the chief food of the gigantic whale, and human beings could eat plankton without harm. Most animals, unlike the protozoans, are formed not only of many cells but of many different kinds of cell.
Cells of the same kind form a particular kind of solid matter, or tissue, in an animal’s body. For instance, in the human body the nerves are made of nerve tissue, which is formed of nerve cells; and in the same way different cells form the tissue of our muscles, bones, skin, and so on. The cells in our body are constantly dying and being replaced by new cells that are made of the food we eat. For instance, your skin flakes off in tiny particles, often so small you do not see them, while new skin grows underneath. Losing old cells and growing new ones is part of the process we call “living.”

Homemade raw cat food for greater dietary health

images20

Something such as a raw cat food diet may sound slightly alien to you, as you’ll most likely be used to feeding your cat a shop bought, pre cooked food from a can or package. This, you may think, is the best option for your cat, and it is wise to keep buying and feeding your cat such foods. However, there is research that suggests feeding your cat a raw food diet as the best option.

Homemade cat food can be extremely beneficial when Feeding Kittens or fully grown cats, as the benefits can be felt even in later life – your cat does not need to have been feed on raw foods its whole life to make the change, although it is beneficial to start the cat on raw food as young as possible in its life in order for it to reap the benefits for the longest possible period of time.

Tests have shown that in a controlled scientific environment, where the tests are carried out to extreme degrees, cats on a raw food diet coped will and had good health, whereas cats on a cooked food diet had issues with reproduction after just a few generations. In addition, these cats also developed medical issues such as mouth and gum disease along with bladder and heart problems, also within just a few generations.

However, you would think that this would ruin the line of successive cats in their bloodline – this is not the case, as when changing these cats to a raw food diet, and all their successive children to such a diet, the bloodline returned to a fully healthy one within a few generations. The benefit of this raw food diet is clear for all to see.

Homemade Cat Food may sound like something that will make you uneasy, as the onus is on you to create the food suitable for your cat to eat. The process is extremely simple and almost impossible to get wrong, but you can be safe in the knowledge that even if you do somehow manage to mess up, your cat will be fine; in the wild, cats eat all sorts of things, living and dead, which can hold a range of bacteria inside. Despite this, a wild cat will survive, due to their highly acidic stomachs, which are prepared to deal with most things they can throw at them.

If you are still worried about contaminates or issues with homemade cat food there are some easy steps which you can take to be safe:

Keep all surfaces and hands used to prepared food 100% clean at all times

Add probiotics to the food, to aid intestinal health

Buy meat from a trustworthy butcher

Steer clear of ground beef from the supermarket in packages, it will not be as fresh as that from a butcher

What To Remember When Putting Pets Into Boarding Facilities

images16

In addition to this, pets often have special needs that need to be catered to. Whether these needs stem around medicines and taking care of conditions or simply when pets are used to going on walks or playing, it is important that pets stay on these schedules in order to continue living healthy and happy lives. It is easier for individuals and families who own these pets to take care of their needs while they are at home because they have already fit playtimes and other specific needs into their schedules. The hardest aspect of pet care is making sure that schedules and other types of needs are not interrupted if the owners go away for any reason. Though there are several options for individuals to come care for pets at a home, there are also great pet boarding Vancouver, WA facilities that can ensure that pets get all the attention they need as often as they need it. Pet boarding Vancouver, WA facilities do provide for many aspects of pet care. For example, each pet boarding facility provides fresh food and water bowls for many different types of animals, as well as places for each pet to have their own kennel space and area in which to play and relax. Also, pet boarding Vancouver, WA facilities are able to take specific orders from owners in order to be conscientious about when their pet is taken care of.

However, it is the responsibility of the owner to provide a couple of things in order to ensure that pet boarding companies are able to care for their furry loved one as best as possible. Some of these things are any medicines that the pet might need, special foods that the pet must have, specific instructions if any, and similar items. By helping pet boarding companies to cater to a specific pet through these instructions and directions, the pet will be able to have the best experience and care possible however long the family or owners are away. Also, being able to care for pets in the best way is one of the highest priorities of pet boarding facilities, so providing them with these directions and special tools for specific pet care can ensure that pets are taken care of, happy, and healthy as they would be if they had never left home.

Cat Training Tips – Using A Clicker In Cat Training

images22

When speaking of a clicker for training purposes, you would normally associate such a device with the training of dogs. However, they are also a very handy tool when it comes to teaching cat tricks or just to make life easier for a cat owner.

As cat training tips go, this could be the one that is relatively unheard of yet has so many great benefits, it should be shouted about! Proving to be a very effective way of rewarding a cat when they have done something right, a clicker can be used alongside other toilet training tips or just general training altogether for a much easier and more enjoyable ride.

When you hand a cat a treat when they have done something that is right, they may not always know exactly what they are being rewarded for so by clicking the clicker device at the same time, they know exactly what they have done right and can then accept the treat and go about their usual routine.

When the cat associated the clicker with a treat, it soon recognizes that when they are being well behaved or have done something good such as using their cat flap rather than pawing at the door or using the litter tray. In many cat training tips books or website, most of them state that getting the cats attention straight after a good action and then providing them with a treat can be more useful than just giving them a treat alone.

Cats will be able to hear sounds such as the clicker much clearer than they can hear a voice so as cat training tips go, the clicking noise could be the best tip you ever picked up. The clickers tone will always stay the same whereas a humans voice changes tone and pitch which means the clicking noise will always be recognized whereas your voice may not. Clickers are also quicker than phrases and one example of this is that is takes longer to say something along the lines of well done or good girl/boy than it would be to depress the clicking device.

If you are looking for the greatest cat training tips either to teach your cat tricks or just with regards to toilet training tips then using a clicker could just be the perfect thing for both you and your furry pal!

The Giant Stuffed Monkey and the Threat to the Monkey Population

images1

The giant stuffed monkey is an all around terrific plush toy for a wide group of ages. For young children, it’s a fun first-time soft toy that can be played with and/or ‘substituted’ for a pillow and slept on, and for older children, it’s a great addition to a stuffed animal collection. The giant stuffed monkey, is, of course, a loyal companion and friend as well, no matter its owner’s age.

In threatened forests around the world in which monkeys make their home, it turns out that monkeys are much more sensitive to damaged habitat than what had previously been thought. Dr. Andrew Marshall, from the Environment Department at the University of York and Director of Conservation at Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo, along with several colleagues from other universities, conducted a study in 2010 of monkeys living in the Udzungwa Mountains in Tanzania. Their findings suggested that external factors in forests, such as human activity, had a major impact on overall monkey populations living in forests as big 25 square miles. In addition, it was discovered that the monkeys’ health was also affected.

Per Dr. Marshall, “this study suggests that while small forest fragments need protecting we should intervene at an earlier stage to protect larger forest areas that are under threat.- Seven species of monkey that lived in an area covering some 6, 213 square miles, were part of the research. Dr. Marshall goes on to say that the end results were reason enough to help communities living in the area learn a different way of doing things so as to help with the forest species. Local communities could make a point of planting the kind of habitat that would form a corridor between parts of forests that have become fragmented.

Floppy chimps, tall chimps, and/ or chimp families, are all types of giant stuffed monkeys that are available for you from which to choose. If gorillas are more your thing, be sure and go with a giant stuffed monkey that is a gorilla – there is a noticeable difference amongst the species. Whichever one you decide on, you can be sure that both it and you will be quite pleased that you did.

Angeline Hope is a collector of giant stuffed monkey animals. You can view a selection of giant stuffed monkey animals at MyBigPlush.

Choosing A Stately Bird

images6

Forty-three of our States and the District of Columbia have selected a bird to represent them as an emblem. In the majority of the States this popularly-chosen avian representative has been officially recognized and in the other states it is planned to have this done at early legislative sessions. The mere fact that these bird emblems have been chosen is not important so far as the emblem itself is concerned. What is significant is that which led up to the selection; the discussion, study, and thought that it required: the very real educational service that it performed. And the result is that affectionate interest has been thus aroused in all birds and their protection.
When the first query went out, “Have you a State Bird?” it was virtually a new thought. Aside from Louisiana, Maryland and Utah, where custom had already established official birds, and Kansas, where a successful early campaign was held, inquiry revealed that there were no state birds. So campaigns were started, taking most effective form in drives by women’s clubs, Audubon societies and Nature groups in cooperation with the schools to “get out the vote.” Quickly these campaigns grew into crusades. Many candidates were entered. Their qualifications were discussed from all angles. Inquiry brought out whether the birds nominated were valuable economically; whether they were truly representative of the region; what their distinctive characteristics were; whether they were attractive songsters, and many other details. An awakened interest in birds and their study and a greater interest in Nature Study were quickly noted. Balloting was active and the votes cast were well-considered decisions. Beyond all question the value of selecting an official State bird was established. Naturally in the various campaigns many interesting things developed. It is, therefore, of both value and interest now to review these various campaigns in connection with the reproduction here of these official birds in all their color and beauty.
For instance, in 1927, at the request of the Ladies’ Memorial Association, the Legislature of Alabama adopted the Flicker, or “yellow hammer”, as the official State bird. The members of this organization urged the choice because the Alabama soldiers in the Confederate Army were known as “Yellow Hammers”, and the yellow lining of the bird’s wings and tail recall the uniform colors of the Alabama cavalry. Or, when the General Federation of Women’s Clubs accepted the invitation to hold its 1931 Biennial Council in Phoenix, Arizona, Mrs. D. I. Craig, Chairman of Conservation for the State was urged to have a State bird selected before the meeting was held. She wasted no time and a campaign was launched throughout the State. Ballots were cast for various candidates but when these were counted the Cactus Wren was out in front in a run-away contest. A bill making the selection official was immediately presented to the Legislature and passed and signed by the Governor in March, 1931.

Diy Cat Tree Plans – Could They Be Your Secret Weapon For Saving On Cat Furniture

images22

Learning how to make a cat tree using a set of DIY cat tree plans can be an extremely rewarding experience. Owning a cat is very rewarding in and of itself, but creating your own cat furniture can not only provide your cat with a safe place to play, lounge, and scratch, but can also give you the satisfaction of a job well done.

Cats are independent creatures with some incredible traits, but they also have some pretty nasty habits. The most notorious is their reputation for destroying furniture with their claws or chewing up papers and cardboard (ask your cat and they’ll probably just call it artwork). I can’t help but laugh every time I watch episodes of “Simon’s Cat” on YouTube because every cat owner knows the comedic scenarios are all too real.

Cats need a place to scratch if you want to protect your furniture. They also love to climb, play, lounge, and dart in and out of things (a paper bag comes to mind). A good set of DIY cat tree plans can help you create a unique kitty funland which can provide your cat with everything she needs for much less than buying a tree or other cat furniture at your local pet store. The savings can be quite substantial.

Mixing and matching parts can allow you to create all kinds of interesting and elaborate designs. Just a few ideas you can incorporate include building a kitty theme park, a kitty jungle gym, a kitty circus, or anything else you can come up with. Just have fun with it and let your imagination run wild.

The great news is your kitty is going to love the cat tree you build no matter what it looks like. It doesn’t have to be a master piece. Cats don’t judge like people do. They love unconditionally and bring you years of laughter and joy that are priceless. Even if you don’t know the first thing about building things, your cat will love you for taking a step forward and diving right in on a new cat tree construction project.

If you learn to build your own cat trees, then you can place them throughout your house in all of your cat’s favorite locations. Remember, cat’s scratch mainly to mark territory, so having one simple scratching post probably won’t be enough. Accessorize your trees with favorite kitty toys, and match them to the theme and colors of the room so they blend right in.

The Symbolism Behind Native American Fetish Animals

images2

Certain tribes are very closely associated with Native American fetish animals. The Hopi, Zuni, Inuit, and Navajo are particularly known for their fetish animals. They consider that these fetish animals are connected with the six sacred directions, which include the four points of the compass as well as the upper and lower worlds. Indian fetish animals are also considered to have certain traits. Each animal’s species is endowed with certain characteristics. These characteristics are thought to give protection to an individual or tribe.

Native American fetish animals hold a special place in many Indian tribes. While these fetish animals can be considered to be good luck charms, they hold a more significant place in Indian culture. The closeness felt by the Native American to the natural world, manifests itself in these fetishes. The different animals in our world were respected and admired by the American Indians. Fetish art may have abounded due to the animal’s ability to survive the harsh environment of the southwest desert. A fetish animal was carried in a medicine bag, very often.

It is not surprising that Indians would seek help while living in a sometimes hostile world. Inspiration was found in the animals around them. Native American animal fetishes seek to hold some of the animal’s qualities and resourcefulness. The animal’s spirit will also communicate with the unseen world. Representing aggression and tenacity is the badger. Love is found in the deer fetish and gentleness as well. The bear, which gives courage and strength, is one of the most familiar Native American animal fetishes. The list of animal fetishes is long, and you can easily find one to mirror the quality you seek.

The most common material Native American fetishes are made of is stone however, many options are available in wood or bone. Semi precious stone is often used, making the fetish even more beautiful. Today, skilled Indian artists are still making animal fetishes. A wide variety of individual styles are available, as well as a choice of materials. The beauty of fetishes is shown in materials such as turquoise, agate and quartz.

Animal fetishes are no longer confined to Indian tribes but are available to anyone. Having a Native American animal fetish can bring a measure of comfort to you. Besides free standing animal fetishes, animal fetish necklaces are now made by talented Indian artists. Having a collection of fetishes in the home can add interest as well as decoration. Undoubtedly, the beautifully made and polished fetishes can calm and soothe when held in the hand. These objects are equally appropriate when arranged on the table or shelf or when kept close in a pocket or purse. The thought and symbolism that goes into every Native American fetish animal can bring some of the spirit of the Southwest to you and your home.
