CHRISTMAS AND PAW PRINTIS’ THE SEASON TO BE JOLLY!

The Christmas festive season is upon us. It’s time for some good food, good company, and good music. With our near and dear ones closer than ever, this season calls for all the fun festive games, and decor!

From Christmas tree to Christmas wreath, from decorative ornaments to socks and stockings hanging over the fireplace, this season calls for a sprinkle of festive lights and a dash of woofs. Festivals are mere days unless they are celebrated with our loved ones. With family close to our hearts and pets closer to our souls, let us cherish the spirit of this season.

The Spirit Of Christmas Festivities.

A non-stressed and joyful pet calls for a happy environment, positivity, and love. The spirit of festivities lies in the free expression of happiness, vigour, strength, and enthusiasm as a whole. In fact, vitality is measured in terms of “liveliness,” which means how active they are in terms of living and is a state of being strong and active.

The spirit of festivities is all about vitality and enthusiasm. Vitality is closely related to immunity. Vitality is like a building that has immunity as its core foundation. Vitality finds its roots in –

– Proper Nutrition.

– Ample Exercise.

– Sound Sleep.

– Resilience and Stress- free environment.

– Mutual hearty Connection & Bonding.

Of all these, food and nutrition are of the utmost importance to building up immunity and boosting vitality. Good fats, carbohydrates, and proteins, along with a balanced amount of minerals and vitamins, are essential to building vigour and strength. Essential minerals and vitamins such as calcium, potassium, sodium, vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E, and vitamin K, along with vitamins B complex and C, etc. are the building blocks of health.

We Like Our Cookies Fresh And Without Stress.

The holiday season calls for festive food. Warm soup, warm cake, and cold ice cream—the list is endless. It’s time for some guilt-free munching. However, for those who have pets at home, take a closer look at this section. Here’s a list of foods that are commonly used to make delicious munchies but are not so good for our pets’ health. As these ingredients are the core basis for certain dishes, it’s best to avoid giving “just a bite” of those dishes that involve the use of one or more of the following ingredients-

1. Chocolates: Yummy chocolates and distasteful outcomes.

Chocolates are particularly harmful to dogs and cats. Chocolates contain a certain ingredient, theobromine, which is extremely toxic for dogs and cats. Theobromine affects the cardiovascular system and increases blood flow to the brain to the extent our pets cannot comprehend. This caffeine-like effect of chocolate may potentiate seizures in dogs and is life-threatening. Dark chocolates are comparatively more dangerous to pets in terms of toxicity, followed by milk chocolates and white chocolates.

So chocolate cakes and pastries are a strict no-no for dogs and cats. This also involves a strict ban on caffeine and caffeine products such as coffee-infused cakes, etc.

2. Grapes: there’s nothing grape about this.

Grapes, just like chocolate, are extremely toxic for pets. Consuming grapes can cause sudden kidney failure and death. Grapes contain tartaric acid, among other unknown culprit ingredients, which are highly toxic and can lead to sudden lethargy, vomiting episodes, diarrhea, and kidney failure symptoms. For dogs, consuming as little as one grape can be potentially fatal. Yes, it’s best to stay away from grapes this season!

3. Raisins: Just raisin’ problems.

Raisins, similar to grapes, contain a toxic substance-tartaric acid, which is extremely toxic for dogs and can cause severe and dangerous repercussions when consumed.

4. Onions: Oh no! Not onions.

Onions are toxic to pets. Onions contain N-propyl disulfide, which is known to cause hemolysis or the breakdown of RBCs. This causes a rapid decline in the RBC count and a breakdown of the RBC structure. This leads to anemia and subsequently blood-related dysfunction. RBCs are extremely important as they carry oxygen to various parts of the body. Onions directly affect this harmony. Therefore, it’s best to avoid giving pets a bite-sized portion of your plate containing onions!

5. Xylitol: I like my food unsweetened.

Xylitol affects blood sugar levels. Ingesting even a small amount of xylitol may cause severe hypoglycemia in dogs. Hypoglycemia refers to low glucose. The blood glucose level falls rapidly, which can cause vomiting, lethargy, seizures, and liver failure and subsequently be fatal to pets.

A few other food items which are a strict no-no for pets are-

  • Nutmeg
  • Alcohol
  • Cooked Bones
  • Avocado
  • Salty food
  • Milk/ Dairy products
  • Wheat (and other related items causing food allergies)

On the flip side, there are certain foods that are excellent for your pet’s health. These items are healthy, nutritious, and wholesome. For example-

  • Carrots
  • Brocolli
  • Green beans
  • Lean meat ( chicken or  fish)
  • Eggs
  • Squash
  • Pumpkins

Good, nutritious, and wholesome food helps improve energy and boosts immunity. This festive season pays a closer look at the kind of food offered to the pet. Certain food items are potentially toxic while others are extremely beneficial for building good health. Multi-vitamin supplements, essential Amino Acids supplements, and such related products help boost immunity.

“The body takes care of itself; we only give it a little push to be healthier.”

Great Pomp Comes With Great Responsibility.

A house feels like home when we are surrounded by our loved ones, our friends, our families, and anyone we hold near our hearts. Mostly during family events, pets tend to get stressed out. Some pets get along comparatively well with others than others, who are rather anxious and skeptical of these strangers. Sometimes, they may not be so-called strangers, yet pets can take their time to mix and form a bond with the other person.

Your pets may convey their acceptability of a stranger or their aggression towards your guest by reacting in a certain manner. They may growl or bark in a growling manner or adopt an attacking posture if they sense some threat from the guest.

This may be a sign of protecting the family and themselves from the threat they see the stranger possessing. Some dogs and cats may not be social enough to react in such a manner. However, they do show their comfort/discomfort by expressing certain signs.

– They may isolate themselves, refuse feed or water, and so on when they are physically or mentally upset.

-A dog with its tail wagging is a sign that they are not sensing any danger from you and consider you to be its friend.

Body language is a method of communication without words. It is non-verbal in nature, for dogs and cats, the counterpart of non-verbal communication is non-vocalizing communication, wherein no barking, howling, or purring is involved.

Pets may get stressed when a lot of unplanned commotion happens around them. The feelings of tension, worry, and nervousness all indicate that your pet is stressed. With guests flocking in, loud music, firecrackers, and so on, it may tend to affect our pets in a negative manner.

Here are a few signs and symptoms of a stressed dog-

– Your pet may refuse food and water.

– They tend to hide.

-Socializing with fellow pets and humans is a big no-no for them.

– They bark or get agitated quickly.

– They exhibit signs of diseases (if they are suffering from any), for instance, diarrhea, vomiting, etc.

-The tail is tucked away beneath their body.

– Other odd behavioral modifications.

Fighting Stress, Spreading Joy.

Stress can be due to many reasons. Some reasons may be physical, which involve traveling with your pet, changing locations, moving houses, etc. Or it may be mental and emotional, which involves separation anxiety and leaving your pets alone for a long time.

Certain other reasons which may trigger stress are:

– Introducing new pets.

– Introducing new people (unfamiliar friends or family members).

– Lactation or pregnancy.

– Underlying health problems.

Here’s What You Can Do:

– Introduce new people and pets gradually.

– Do not force feed or give water.

– Spend some quality time with pets.

– Ensure that your pets have a comfortable place (dog house or mattress) where they can quietly sit or lay down.

-Ensure young kids and strangers are not bothering your pet unnecessarily.

– A vet visit is recommended in cases of disease processes, extreme laziness, or other associated symptoms.

-Homeopathic medicine:

STRESSZA for pets is an excellent remedy for treating anxiety, stress, and other associated problems. Symptoms such as scratching, barking, snapping unnecessarily, etc. can be due to anxiety and stress. Anxiety and stress are expressed in various ways. Some may show a violent reaction, while others may end up becoming more timid and quiet than usual. Keep an eye out for such subtle changes in body language and behavior. This homeopathic medicine helps your pet relieve stress and calm their anxiety.

This festive season, let’s celebrate with good food, a happy family, a healthy and joyful pet, and lots of fun! Let’s say no to stress and build a comfortable space for everyone, including our pets, which bring immense happiness to everyone’s hearts.
