When I went in the military, I had no idea where life would take me. I knew that you can be stationed in a variety of places, and I was ready for that. I lived in many different states, but I think my favorite one has to be Georgia. So, after I served my time, I decided to stay there. I began looking at apartments for Sandy Springs GA tenants as soon as I knew that I was getting out of the military.

I had been stationed in August, Georgia. I really liked it, but I had spent some time driving around the state on the weekends and found some other areas that I liked even more. Sand Springs was very high on my list. I had never even heard of the city before. I just happened to be on a long drive one very nice Saturday, and I came across the border into the city. I stopped immediately at a coffee shop and went inside to relax for a bit and have a drink of coffee. (more…)

It is important to realize that just as people have allergies cats can have allergies too.

Cats suffer with the same types of allergies as humans. A cat can be allergic to dust and pollen, foods, and plants they come in contact with and medications.

Dog agility seesaw is one of the most challenging obstacles to train to any breed of dog. The behavior of the dog in the movement of the see-saw does not normally happen but are learned. Whether for the purpose of competition or recreation, the most important skill to learn for both the trainer/handler and the dog is coordination. The team should work together quickly, efficiently and safely. The speed, accuracy and preference for obstacles of dogs vary throughout the course. This is the reason why the handler must adjust their handling techniques to support the dog in any obstacles.

Technical, physical and educational training is important. The dog must be physically fit to run and jump without stress and damage to the body. The seesaw is different from any obstacle because the performance depends on the obstacle equipment itself. The construction and the design of the seesaw greatly affect its movement or motion. To ensure the consistency of the performance of the equipment, organizations for dog agility have set standard plank dimensions and height of the pivot. However, there is still no response about the load. Seesaw solutions have been designed with the performance characteristics. The materials are carefully chosen for the specific design.

Experts evaluated the effects of designs to the performance of the dogs. The purpose was to determine how the designs reacted to different kinds of load applied. They wanted to know how the different loads and the application affects the response of the dog agility seesaw. They also wanted to determine the response of the abrupt cessation of the rotation of the plank. There are three series of test performed. Sandbag is are place with different weights on the arm of the seesaw and are released to measure the time from the starting position to the impact on the floor. Again, another test is performed to determine the stiffness of the boards used, and the final test is to evaluate the bending capacity of the board.

Pets are wonderful companions. The loyalty and constant acceptance from our pets is priceless. Many pet owners make sacrifices so they can have their furry friends in the house. Pet hair on the floor and furniture, litter boxes, and messes in the feeding areas are just a few drawbacks of having cats in your home. Fortunately, there are some steps to living in style with indoor cats.

Create a Space for the Cat

If you have the space in your home or apartment, it’s a good idea to create a space for your cat that can be considered his or hers. Place the litter box, food, water, and bed all in this space if there is room. You don’t want the litter box too close to the food and water. Your friend won’t enjoy this and may refuse to eat or use the litter box. You can put some toys or scratching posts in this area, as well.

Set Rules in Other Areas

Now that your cat has it’s own space where it can do what it wants when it wants you’ll want to set some rules for the rest of the house. This can be a long process with cats, especially if your pet has been living with you without rules for some time. The key here is consistency. If the counters, tables, or certain furniture are going to be off limits now you will need to reinforce this rule every time your friends decides to venture on to these areas. Simply placing the cat back on the floor should be enough if you are consistent. Some pet stores carry products to help in this training. Motion-activated sprays and other items are of great help while you are at work or away from home if you don’t want to use an indoor cat cage.

Place Litter Box Out of Sight

This can benefit you and your cat. Cats like privacy when using their litter box. If you have company often, this will promote healthy behavior in your feline friend. Sometimes just using a

Cats are one of the most popular pets in North America. They are loving pets, capable of providing you years of companionship. Like other pets, cats can sometimes get sick. There are several different types of ailments that cats can get, one of which is feline diabetes. Feline diabetes is a serious disease, although it can be treated by a veterinarian.

Diabetes is more common with humans than with cats or other animals. The cause of diabetes is actually quite simple. Sugar, or glucose, is found in the blood. The level of blood sugar in the body or the animal is kept under control by hormone insulin, which the pancreas produces. When the pancreas doesnt produce enough insulin, diabetes is to blame.

The symptoms of feline diabetes will vary. The most common symptoms include an increase in urine and an increase in thirst. Other symptoms of feline diabetes include a loss of appetite, weight loss, and a poor coat. An increase in thirst is easy to detect, as you can easily notice the water dish empty throughout the day.

If you dont get your cat treated for feline diabetes immediately, the cat will eventually become inactive, vomit on a regular basis, and eventually fall into a coma. On the other hand, if you get the diabetes treated in time, the cat will more than likely lead a normal and healthy life. Keep in mind that treatment doesnt happen overnight it takes time and dedication.

Cats that have feline diabetes will need to be given food at the same time every day. They should be prevented from going outside as well. If your cat has diabetes, youll need to give him insulin shots once or twice or a day. Once your veterinarian checks your cat, he will tell you how many shots and how much insulin you need to give your cat.

Before you give your cat his insulin shot, you should always make sure that he has some food first. If he hasnt eaten and you give him a shot anyway, he could end up with a hypoglycemic shock. This can also occur
