• What’s the Optimal Diet for Your Cat?

    Cats are carnivores, which means their natural diet consists mostly of proteins, fat, carbs, minerals, and water. The best kind of food for your cat includes all of these elements and is usually labeled as “complete and balanced.” Check out this video to learn more about how to feed your cat a healthy diet.

  • How Improperly Disposed of Dog Poop Threatens the Water Supply

    Cleaning up after your dogs is not easy or fun. That is why so many people neglect this important step! But neglecting pet waste removal responsibilities does much more than just impact the look of your yard; it can also threaten your community’s water supply.

    A number of cities have spent large sums of money to promote proper pet waste removal among their residents. That is because improperly disposed of dog waste affects many aspects of the community: from the community’s appearance to the health of its citizens. When dog waste is neglected, it can find its way to the water supply. Studies have shown that pet waste raises bacteria levels in water, often making the water too dangerous for residents to drink or even use recreationally for swimming.

    Don’t let your dog’s waste become a problem for the whole neighborhood! Make sure your yard is healthy and safe by hiring the professionals at Pet Butler of Dallas. Find out how our  dog poop removal  services can help your family by calling us at (888) 672-4158.

  • Dangerous Food for Dogs to Eat

    Hiring a professional pet waste removal company is a great idea for all dog owners. These companies have all of the tools needed to properly dispose of pet waste, meaning you don’t have to worry about it! Dog owners should still keep an eye on their dogs’ bathroom habits to make sure they are following a good diet and avoiding dangerous foods such as:

     

    dog eating

    Chocolate
    Most dog owners have at least heard that dogs are not supposed to eat chocolate—even if they do not know why. Chocolate contains an ingredient called theobromine that is toxic to dogs. When dogs ingest this toxic agent, they can experience a variety of symptoms including excessive thirst, vomiting, diarrhea, tremors, and even death. Keep all types of chocolate away from dogs at all times.

    Grapes or Raisins
    Fruit is one of the healthiest snacks that humans can enjoy, but these sweet treats may not be the best options for dogs. Grapes and raisins tend to be some of the worst choices as they often lead to kidney failure in dogs. Experts do not know what ingredient causes this reaction, but many dogs experience vomiting and lethargy after ingesting grapes or raisins.

    Avocados
    The avocado is another fruit that should be  kept away from dogs  at all times. These delicious green fruits contain persin, which is a substance that can be toxic when ingested by dogs. This substance can be found in all parts of the avocado plant. It is especially important for gardeners to keep their dogs away from any avocados they are growing in the yard.

    Onions and Garlic
    If you like to cook with onions or garlic or frequently use onion or garlic powder, make sure to keep it away from your dog. When dogs ingest these foods, their red blood cells get destroyed. This can lead to anemia and other health problems.

    Pet Butler of Dallas  can help you handle your dog’s waste quickly and easily. Contact us at (888) 672-4158 for information about our Dallas pooper scooper services and to learn about the benefits of professional pet waste removal.

  • How to Safely Bathe Your Dog in the Winter

    Dogs love running, playing, and getting dirty. That is why they require baths every once in a while! Bathing your dog is important for removing dirt and oil and helping him maintain a healthy and shining coat. If you are worried about how to safely bathe your dog during the cold months of winter, find tips with this guide:

    dog grooming

    Use a Hair Dryer
    If you want to wash your dog during the cold months of winter, it is important to make sure he can stay warm during and after the process. Towels are important during any bathing session, but they are especially important for wintertime baths. Even if you use absorbent towels, it is important to also use a hair dryer to get your dog fully dry. Keep the hair dryer on a very low setting to maintain safety and keep your dog calm.

    Try Dry Shampoo
    Dry shampoo is not just for humans—it can also be for dogs! Many of today’s dog shampoo makers produce dry shampoo products that can be used to keep dogs clean without any water. These products can be sprayed on to absorb dirt and oil that build up in dog fur. Spraying dry shampoo on your dog and gently brushing the product through his fur will make him look and feel cleaner. Dry shampoo is a great option for dog owners who do not want to get their dogs completely wet  during the winter .

    Hire a Professional
    If your dog is in serious need of a bath, dry shampoo may not do the trick. Make sure your dog can stay safe and warm while receiving a wintertime bath by hiring a professional. Look for a pet grooming company that offers bathing services to get your dog clean and shiny.
