How To Choose The Right Animal Feed

by pet29

Animals are creatures who cannot express what kind of food they want or is healthy for them, so it is of utmost importance that you take care of it and the feed of the animals you choose be high on nutrition. Food is the most important criteria for animals and if that’s not right then health issue would rise from time to time which is not good at all. So, depending upon the nutritional needs of animals choose the animal feed. Now, there are different needs of different animals be it horse, dog, chicken, duck, cow, goat, etc and these needs are based on the age of the animals.

For example the feed requirement of a calf and a cow or lamb and a goat would definitely differ, even the nutritional requirement for male and female animals is different. During Freezing weather it becomes all the more important to take care of the food and eating habits of the animals. You can search online to fine many publications on the animal food requirements. For animal nutrient content of feeds like Bermuda Hay, Cracked corn, kernel corn, Soy hulls etc, you simply have to send the samples for analysis to the Department of agriculture commercial animal feed and pet food program. For animal foods like sweet feed, dog food, corn gluten pellets etc, the bag itself has the nutrient value tables on it.

There are various types and quality of animal feeds available in the market like roughages, silage, hays, stover, root crops, pasture grasses, etc. There are these concentrates also which are a very high energy value. Animal feeds consists of cereal grains, barley, wheat, oats, etc. as well as high protein meals like soy bean, cottonseed, groundnut and likes as well as products like sugarcane and sugar beets that are processed by products.

Cereal grains as animal feed – The cereal grains are used as animal feed in the whole form or the ground form. Some feed them singly while some mix them with animals feeds that are high in protein or feeds with vitamins and minerals. Mostly these meals are suitable for poultry and pigs and act as supplementary feed for animals like horses.

High protein meals as animal feed – These are meals that are made out for the residue of the vegetable seeds like soybeans, canola, cottonseed, coconut and likes. But care has to be taken while processing some of


Pets Help People Heal

by pet29

Pets help people too when they are given the chance to do so. Many people are not aware that a lot of animals, mainly pets, are able to help people to heal in different ways. In many parts of the world we are discovering that pets are just ‘not pets’. They are much more. They are a part of the family and the unit in whole.

Dogs have become the biggest helper of people. Many of which have come into the workforce without complaint. They are always willing to help no matter what job or challenge awaits them. Working dogs do not have to be any one specific breed as many would think. I have known some kindly mutts who were good enough to take time out of their busy day to help a child in need of a friend or a senior citizen just wanting to relax and be with an animal companion.

Some dogs have gone into our nations’ armed forces. They help the men and women protect our land while in other countries. Many have come back with medals of honor and were able to retire upon their return.

Other dogs have taken to the streets helping their fellow officers when in need. They have become ‘heroes’ in their own right. They have also worked with the fire departments serving as a mascot and at times helping in rescue efforts.

Having a great ‘sniffer’, their nose of course, is a big deal in their world. They have helped track a lot of people who were under snow from avalanches. They have also helped find those who were in a building collapse or just plain ‘stuck’ somewhere. They are able to find those who may be lost. They also help us in our school systems. They are able to smell things that we cannot and therefore are good for tracking a lot of different things.

Dogs in the medical field have been trained to help the blind, to know when someone is going to have a seizure or any kind of medical emergency which may require assistance, and they have even been said to be able to sniff out cancer. Along with dogs, cats and birds have also helped out when it comes to senior citizens, the disabled and the mentally and/or physically handicapped.

This said, other animals have also come into the healing path. Some people have even been more relaxed and happier

by pet29

I’ve been compiling a list of famous cats for my website PetNum.com for some time now. I know which my favorites are, but I wondered which are the most famous overall. There are so many great famous cats that I’m doing this in four groups, and then I’ll do a final round with the top cats from those groups.

The most famous cats (based on online chatter) with names starting with the letter N to Sc are:

10. Polar Bear, who was the cat in Cleveland Amory’s book “The Cat Who Came for Christmas”

9. Paulie, from the Non Sequitur comic strip

8. Patsy, who was Charles Lindbergh’s cat

7. Orlando the Marmalade Cat, from the series of books by Kathleen Hale

6. Periwinkle, from the TV series Blue’s Clues

5. Oscar, the Hospice cat from Rhode Island who can seemingly predict death

4. Samurai Cat, from the illustrated books by Mark Rogers

3. Salem from the Sabrina the Teenage Witch TV Series and comic books

2. Sabbath, from Emily the Strange

…and the most famous cat on this list is…

1. Scratchy, from “Itchy and Scratchy” a cartoon within the animated series the Simpsons

Cats not ranking in the top 10 were Nee chee from Emily the Strange, Nala from the House of Night book series, Napster who was Shown Fanning’s cat, Robert Johnson from Rick Riordan’s Tres Navarre series, Pyewacket from the 1958 movie Bell Book and Candle, Pulcinella who was composer Domenico Scarlatti’s cat, Piccolo who was Albert Schweitzer’s cat, and Peta who was the British Chief Mouser in the 1970s.

So a nice mix of cats from television (Scratchy, Salem, Periwinkle) and books (Sabbath, Samurai Cat, Polar Bear, Orlando).

I compiled this list by searching for the names listed on a number of search engines and ranking them by the number of web pages, discussion forums, photos, videos, etc that are available online.

Top Three Reasons Why People Adopt Virtual Pets

by pet29

If you’re considering adopting a virtual pet, it is a good idea to first find a virtual pet adoption website that can match your standards and give you exactly what you want. There are a lot of choices online, just try to check them out and look up reviews so you know exactly what each one has to offer.

There are many different things that you can learn from adopting a virtual pet that can contribute to your final decision regarding the adoption of a real pet. For instance, if you are having doubts about getting a pet dog or not, try to adopt a dog from a virtual pet adoption website first. It may not be real, but you will still get a firsthand experience as a pet owner. You will get to see what it takes to take care of a dog, albeit virtually. These are things you can take into account when deciding if you want to get a real one in the future.

The second motivation for people adopting a virtual pet through a virtual pet adoption website is the very minimal cost required. Face it, all animals, whether they are as common as a dog, cat, bird or hamster will cost you a lot of money. You have to buy them food, accessories, and toys, and you will need to pay for vet appointments. All of these things add up to a lot of expenses, compared to adopting a virtual pet where you will see that there is little to no cost needed to take care of your pet. Virtual pet adoption websites are generally free and if there is a small fee, it costs nowhere near the expenses involved in owning a real animal.

And finally, the top third reason why people choose to adopt a virtual pet is for companionship. Adopting a virtual pet allows a person to enjoy the company of a pet minus the hassles of dealing with the previously mentioned responsibilities. No need to spend too much money or time on a real pet. They can simply adopt a virtual pet through adoption websites.
