Today’s session is about what to use to remove unwanted ice and snow this winter.

It’s that time of year again, winter. with winter comes cold weather, snow and ice. When the snow and ice cover walkways and roads, we naturally want to remove it for our safety. The most common way to remove ice after we shovel the snow is to put down rock salt. The problem is, most ice melting products are very poisonous to dogs. But before we get into why they are poisonous, lets talk about how rock salt melts ice.

Water freezes at about 32 degrees. When you put rock salt on the ice, the salt dissolves and forms a brine solution (saltwater). The brine actually lowers the freezing point of water, so the ice melts. How about other types of ice melt, magnesium, calcium, urea and poly glycol? These chemicals lower the freezing point of water and there by melt the ice. Some of the chemicals have an added bonus to melting ice, they create a chemical reaction when mixed with water and they heat up, this is known as exothermic dissolution.

Having discussed how ice melter’s work, lets look at how safe they are. What I found out through searching many websites on the internet is that just about all the ice melter’s are toxic at some level. Some chemicals are safer than others, but all become toxic at some point.  Rock salt is sodium, it irritates the paws and skin of dogs, it dries out skin, and can cause inflammation. When the paws are licked the dog ingests the sodium. Calcium and magnesium are naturally occurring chemicals in the body. They are essential chemicals in the body, but having too much of these chemicals can really harm your pet. Besides the skin and paw irritation, ingesting too much can cause cardiac problems. Propylene glycol has been approved by the FDA as a food additive for human and pet foods in very low doses. Propylene glycol is used to decide planes. Urea is a chemical that is naturally made in the bodies of animals and humans, it is a component of urine. It is often used in topical products for human use, like shampoos and hand creams. It is not meant to be ingested, while it is not terribly poisonous, it’s not something you want to do.

Here are a list of general signs and symptoms of poisoning and toxicity in the above chemicals.

Dermatitis or irritated skin, inflammation of paws, red irritated paws, staggering, vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, staggering, fluid retention or swelling of the paws, legs, abdomen because of fluid, overly thirsty, extreme urination, seizures and kidney and liver failure.

If your dog starts with any of the following, please go to your vet right away! These can be life threatening. You never want to mess around with the life of your dog.

Here are some products that claim to be safe for use around pets.

Happy Paws Solid Ice Melt , they claim to be pet safe and use calcium magnesium acetate. They advertise they DO NOT use salt, chlorides, glycols, amides and ureas.

Morton Safe-T-Pet Snow & Ice Melt, uses propylene glycol and urea. They claim the product is safe and was designed with veterinarian over sight and in put.

PSTL PAW THAW ICE MELT, This company does not say what is uses.

Safe Paw Ice Melter , this company uses propylene glycol. They claim this is safe for pets.

Let’s look at some alternative ways to remove snow and ice.

In stead of using chemicals, how about using an ice chipper to remove the ice. Suncast 8-Inch Snow & Ice Scraper with D-Grip Handle. An Ice chipper has a flat metal blade and a long wooden handle like a shovel, you stand over the ice and you slam down the chipper on the ice breaking it.  You can still melt ice and not use chemicals too, you can use Propane Turbo Torch, Propane Torch Weed Burner Motor Heater Ice Snow Melter Pipe Thaw, or Bare Ground Solutions Bare Blaster Snow & Ice Melting Propane Torch. Basically it is a propane torch with a long nozzle so you can reach the ground and apply the flame directly to the ice and snow. The added benefit of this torch is, in the summer you can burn weeds and be totally environmentally friendly by not using any chemicals. You can throw sand down over the ice, while it does not melt it will provide a non slip surface to walk across. You can buy sand at any home improvement store and makes a great alternative to melting ice.  Another alternative non ice melt is kitty liter, the non clumping kitty liter. You can get the cheap store brand non clumping liter at any store. You can also use doggie booties. Pawz Blue Water-Proof Dog Boot , Ultra Paws TrAction Dog Boots . These go over your dogs feet and protects them from the cold and from the chemicals used in ice melts. You dog may walk funny until he gets used to them, but these are a very safe way to protect your dog. Here is an alternative to the slip on booties, Invisible Dog Boots – Protect Paws From Sand  Hot Pavement, Ice, and Salt with All Natural 100% Wax-Based Cream. For Dogs Who Just Won’t Wear Boots.

Just a quick recap. Please do your home work and research products that you may wish to use to remove snow and ice, to make sure they are safe for your dog. If you would rather use no chemical alternatives, all the better. Please remember that this is just an informational guide and that you should make the final decision based on what you feel is safest and best for you dog.

More Home Made Treats

Welcome to Daisy’s Rescue. We are all about helping owners and rescue groups to learn helpful tricks and tips on how to take care of your dog(s).

Today’s session is about making healthy all natural treats.

With all the problems that are going on with treats and dog food made in China, it’s time to start making our own dog treats. I know what goes in them and how they were made. Today, we are going to make sweet potato treats and pumpkin treats. There are two kinds of sweet potato treats, chewy and crunchy. We will start with the pumpkin treats.

What you will need: a dehydrator, I like the Nesco American Harvest FD-61 Snackmaster Encore Dehydrator and Jerky Maker,

IMG_7797IMG_7798IMG_7796

it is a really nice machine that has a fan to circulate the hot air and speed drying time, and adjustable temperature too. A box of 5 pounds of sweet potato’s and a pumpkin or two. A deep baking pan and a large pot to boil water. A sharp knife or two and a mandolin slicer if you want and an ice cream scoop for the pumpkin.

This is really easy. You find a fresh pumpkin at the store and bring it home. Cut it in half. Clean out the seeds, then cut it into strips of a few inches wide. Prepare a deep baking pan by filling it with 2 inches of water. Now pre-heat the oven to 375. Put the slices into the pan and place the pan in the oven for about 15 to 20 minutes. This will soften the pumpkin and allow the soft flesh to be removed from the outer rind. After 20 minutes, test the pumpkin to see if the flesh is soft. Remove the pumpkin slices and place on a plate to cool. I use an ice cream scoop to separate the soft flesh from the rind. I pile the pumpkin in a bowl or on another plate. I take the pumpkin and I put it in my hand and I roll out the pumpkin like a “hot dog” and place it on the dehydrator tray. You could make “cookies” as well. What ever shape you would like.

IMG_7809The orange mis-shaped things are the pumpkin treats. I’m sorry that I don’t have photo’s of the pumpkin preparation, I prepared the pumpkin a few weeks prior to writing this.

Next are the sweet potato treats. Around Thanksgiving, most food stores sell the potato’s in 5 pound boxes really cheap.

IMG_7754Now,get a big pot and boil some water. Put about 3/4 of the pot full of water. Now take the sweet potato and get a sharp knife. Slice the potato like a salami, I like 3/16 to a 1/4 inch thick slices. Remember, these will shrink, so don’t worry about the thickness. I also take a few potato’s and slice them longways, like a filet. Again, make them about 1/4 thick. If you have a mechanical slicer like a mandolin slicer, you can use that too. I find they tend to slice too thin and make sweet potato chips.

IMG_7761IMG_7767

IMG_7779Now if you want to make chewy treats, dump some of the potato slices in the boiling water and let them stay for about 10 minutes or so. This is not a precise operation, so the time is not to critical.

IMG_7803You will see the potato become a brighter orange.

IMG_7806The top slice is raw and the bottom slice is boiled. As you remove the boiled slices from the water, put them directly on to the dehydrator trays.

IMG_7807IMG_7805The nice thing with this dehydrator is that you have to have a minimum of 4 trays in place to operate, but you can add trays up to 12. You don’t want the slices to over lap. When all the trays are filled, it’s time to set the temperature.

IMG_7810We will use the fruits and vegetables setting at 135 degrees.

IMG_7811We put the top on and plug it in and you can hear the fan start blowing and now we wait for 9 hours or so. Again, this is not an exact operation, so if you want them drier, keep it on longer.

After 9 hours, I lift the top and see how things are coming along. This batch of treats came out great. Now I have all the dogs at my feet patiently waiting for me to drop one or two. This is the first time that I made the pumpkin treats. Luckily, I have some more pumpkin frozen, so I can make more. My dogs really love the pumpkin treats.

I was able to make 4 sandwich baggies and two quart baggies worth of treats. Let us know how you made out with your treat making.

On a side note, you need a sharp knife. I have been using this knife sharpener for years, it works great and I highly recommend it. The Edge Maker Knife Sharpener

IMG_7785IMG_7787You just put the sharpener on the edge of the counter and then you just run the blade through the metal prongs, like your trying to slice through it.

Fly The Friendly Skies… And Die?

Welcome to Daisy’s Rescue. We are all about helping owners and rescue groups to learn helpful tricks and tips on how to take care of your dog(s).

Today’s session is about Flying with your dog.

Every year many people travel and they want to bring their dog. Many people opt to have their dog go in the cargo hold. Supposedly, the airlines will take great care of the dog, kept inside until the last minute and then last to load and first to unload and back into a climate controlled are. Sadly, many pets die each year while traveling. Many dogs die during the transport in the hold. This story is a little different. This dog died because of poor treatment and neglect prior to loading. If this was my dog and I saw what was happening, I would have been very vocal and demand something be done immediately. Here is the story.

By Barbara Liston

ORLANDO (Reuters) – Michael Jarboe of Miami paid extra for special airline dog handlers to ensure the safety of his 2-year-old mastiff, BamBam, on a cross-country flight.

Instead, following a layover in Houston in 90-degree heat, baggage handlers found BamBam dead on arrival in San Francisco.

Just in time for the holiday travel season, a Change.org petition is calling for new federal rules holding airlines responsible for deaths of animals like BamBam. More than 100,000 signatures were logged on Jarboe’s petition as of late Tuesday, more than half of them added in the past two weeks.

Jarboe said one of his goals is to make pet owners aware about the danger of airline travel.

BamBam, who died in 2012, is hardly alone.

Pets flying with their owners are killed, injured or lost on average once every 10 days, according to Mary Beth Melchior, founder of the watchdog group Where Is Jack Inc. who keeps a tally of large carriers’ reports to the U.S. Department of Transportation.

Her organization is named for a 5-year-old cat who died in 2011 after being lost for two months in New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.

“You run the same risk of losing your pet as you do your luggage,” said Jarboe. “It’s Russian roulette.”

The Humane Society of the United States suggests driving with your pet or leaving your animal at home with a pet sitter before choosing airline travel.

“Air travel can be so quick that you may think a plane is the best way to transport your pet. Think again. Air travel isn’t safe for pets. The HSUS recommends that you do not transport your pet by air unless absolutely necessary,” the organization’s website cautions.

The tragedy of BamBam gained steam at Change.org after the petition was linked to Janet Sinclair’s Facebook page titled “United Airlines Almost Killed My Greyhound” dedicated to her dog Sedona’s flight experience in July.

Sinclair and Jarboe said they both chose to fly with their dogs on United because of its highly regarded Pet Safe program, which was started at Continental Airlines before the carriers’ merger.

Both said the program promised their dogs would be held before and after flights and during layovers in an air-conditioned cargo facility, and transported to and from the planes in an air-conditioned van.

They say the system broke down during layovers in Houston where they say the dogs were left on the tarmac and in non air-conditioned cargo spaces in the summer heat for hours between flights.

“Our goal is the safe and comfortable travel of all the pets that fly with us,” United’s Megan McCarthy said on Tuesday in an emailed response to Reuters concerning the cases.

“On the rare occasion we don’t deliver on that goal, we work with our customers, their vets and our team of vets to resolve the issue,” she added.

Jarboe said he and his partner could see BamBam from their seats on the plane arriving for the second leg of the flight on a luggage cart with baggage handlers, instead of the promised air-conditioned van and special dog handlers.

“We could see right in the kennel. He was standing there swaying there back and forth with his tongue hanging out farther than I’ve ever seen it, drooling,” Jarboe said.

Sinclair said she watched as baggage handlers in Houston “kick Sedona’s crate, kick, kick, kick it six times to get it under the wing and left it there to boil on the tarmac.”

Jarboe said United reported that its autopsy of BamBam was inconclusive after the death, but that his own vet was convinced the dog died of heatstroke. Jarboe said United eventually paid him about $3,770, the price of a new dog and crate.

Sinclair said United agreed to pay Sedona’s hospital bill of about $2,700 for treatment of what the vet diagnosed as heat-stroke and dehydration. But Sinclair said she declined the offer because of an airline condition that she sign a confidentiality agreement.

For holiday travelers thinking about flying with a pet, Jarboe, Sinclair and Melchior offer the same advice: Don’t.

(Editing by David Adams and Doina Chiacu)

The moral of this story is, NEVER put your pet in the hold of an airplane! Always take your dog or pet on board with you, no matter what. My Tucker was flown to me and was in the hold when he was a puppy. To this day (4 years later), he still looks up at planes when he hears them flying over head. Never again would I traumatize my dogs. My dogs are my family and they get treated with the same respect I do.

Signs… Signs… Everywhere Are Signs!

Welcome to Daisy’s Rescue. We are all about helping owners and rescue groups to learn helpful tricks and tips on how to take care of your dog(s). We are here for you to help with useful information on all types of routine dog care. Please feel free to leave comments and questions you may have for us. For your convenience we have added links to the products that we like to use, here in the article for you to find them more easily.

Today’s session is about Making signs for that Protest or “Education” Campaign.

I’ve been part of some “education” campaigns that were about Puppy Mill Awareness. Everything was all set up, the organization was done. The time and place was set. Everyone was briefed and then you show up and …. you have nothing to hold. Well today we are going to explain how you can get signs at a very low cost. If fact most cases there is no cost.

In October and November of every year in the US, we have a series of events…called elections. This is a good thing, because these are going to be your source of signs.  Many towns across the US have passed laws that required politicians to remove all their campaign signs with in a few days after the elections. This is where you come in. You can ask the politician’s by calling their office and asking to remove the signs for them (again after the election). I usually wait a few days and I pick up signs that have been left out and forgotten about. I’m not telling you to steal the signs or do anything Illegal, saying that there are many unwanted signs that are now trash that can be recycled for use to help save dogs lives. A few years ago, I was picking up signs in the end of November. I had about 15 to 20 that were along back roads that everyone forgot about. I stopped and picked them up and drove away. I helped the politician, by removing the sign, and helping him comply with the law.

The signs come in many sizes and shapes. Some of them are the more expensive kind, are  corrugated plastic with a metal wire “H”. The “H” goes into the ground and the sign goes on the “H” wire. If you were to purchase these sign yourself, they might cost about $3.00 a sign and you have a minimum order of 100 (Corrugated Plastic 4MM WHITE Sign Blanks – 24″x18″ BNDL/25 , and Standard “H” Frame Wire Stakes (Pkg of 25/$.95 ea) – Yard Sign Stake – Use with 4mm Corrugated Signs). The cheaper signs are printed poster paper folded over a “N” frame and staple together so it stays on. Surprisingly, they are pretty weather resistant. I have not priced these signs if you were to purchase them, but they should be cheaper.

IMG_4938IMG_4937

Once you have a nice collection of signs, it is time to repurpose them. The first thing you need to do is cover the politicians name. I have found that you need to use a gray or white primer spray paint to cover the sign. I like to use Krylon Semi-Flat White spray paint, because you can re-coat at any time, unlike Rust-Oleum (Rust-Oleum 12 oz. Spray, Flat Light Gray Primer), which requires you to re-coat before 1 hour or after 48 hours. Once the signs are primed, you can cover them with a flat white paint.

IMG_4940

I use about 2 inch stencils to write my message. You can use black paint, or a color to bring attention to your sign. After all the stenciling is done, you can spray a different bright color around the edges of the sign or leave it white. I then spray the sign again with clear gloss to protect the sign (Krylon Crystal Clear Gloss Spray Enamel).
.

IMG_4943 IMG_4942IMG_4941IMG_4944

I like to keep my messages generic , so I can use them at more than one protest or education campaign. If you make them specific to a store, you are committing those signs to that campaign. That can be ok, but if you work with a few different groups or a group that has a couple campaigns, you are now required to have a few signs. When you are thinking about your message, you have to remember that, your audience is driving by at speeds that are not going to allow them to see small detailed messages that are paragraphs. They are going to be able to read two to three lines of large type. Be careful about using pictures. I was on one protest and the group had expensive large signs of horribly abused and neglected dogs pictures. They thought they were the greatest thing. Problem, people driving by saw these horrible pictures of dogs, nothing else. These people did not associate the signs with the pet store or puppy mills, they only saw a bunch of pictures that “Those crazy animal rights people” were showing.  Because they saw the pictures only, they were of no use to educate the public. It’s more important to get your message across in a clear fashion, rather than the “shock” value of an abused dogs. You want people to associate your sign and message with the store or subject of your  campaign.

Good luck! DO NOT Steal any signs, always ask permission! Now you have a economic way to make signs for your campaigns. If anyone has any other tips and suggestions, please let us know. We love sharing your comments. Remember you can get all your shopping needs through our amazon portal.

What’s That Smell? How To Clean Those Accidents

Welcome to Daisy’s Rescue. We are all about helping owners and rescue groups to learn helpful tricks and tips on how to take care of your dog(s). We are here for you to help with useful information on all types of routine dog care. Please feel free to leave comments and questions you may have for us. For your convenience we have added links to the products that we like to use, here in the article for you to find them more easily.

Today’s session is about taking care of those accidents that happen from time to time.

We all want to have our dogs house broken, but from time to time our dogs have an accident. Whether we were away from the house too long, or maybe our dog is older and has a problem holding their bladder until we can take them out side, accidents do happen. We are going to look at what causes the smell and how we can clean up the mess. I will say that some breeds of dogs are much harder to train then others.

Having said all that, I wanted to get some good information that actually works on those stubborn, smelling dog pee stains. After spending some time on the web, I found that the same 4 ingredients kept coming up: Baking Soda, Vinegar, Dish Soap, and Hydrogen peroxide. So basically you have 3 options to clean those stains.

1. There is the “Home Made Pee Spray” method. 2. The commercially available enzyme / oxy clean pee spray. 3. The use of a carpet cleaning machine.

Here is the “Home Made Pee Spray” method.

You need to gather the following items.

1.  Baking Soda,  2. White Vinegar,  3. Dawn Dish Soap, 4. Hydrogen Peroxide Solution.

I also recommend  Pet Pads, instead of paper towels. In fact, using human “Chux” under pads may be cheaper.

Lets get down to business. Sometimes you can actually see the urine stain on the floor. Sometimes you can see invisible urine stains with a black light or ultraviolet light. I use a small pen light that is made by  Streamlight (police use the same type to check ID’s). There are other ultra violet lights on the market as well, that you can use, Portable 6 inch Blacklight is one of them. Now I have had some really smelly stains and not be able to see them either with the naked eye or the backlight. When that happens I resort back to my old stand by, my nose. I get right down on my hands and knees and sniff the carpet until I find the offensive area. Once I have found it, I attack it with one of the above methods. I really don’t have a favorite and I find that one doesn’t work universally, so I keep a few on hand.

We will start with the home made do it yourself stink remover.

1. Once you found the spot, if it is still wet, use the pee pad to remove the excess pee from the rug. I put the absorbent side down and I step on the spot. I move the pee pad slightly and step on the spot again. I do this until I can no longer see the spot being absorbed onto the pee pad. Don’t Move the pee pad yet!

2. Get the water and the vinegar together and mix 50/50. Now removes the pee pad so you know where the spot is. Spray the spot, almost soaking the spot. I let it sit for about 1 or 2 minutes and then I get a clean pee pad and soak up the water and vinegar mixture just like before. Leaving the pee pad over the spot so I can find it.

3. This step has two variations. Variation1. Wait until the spot is dry and then cover by sprinkling baking soda over the spot. Then mix 1/2 cup of hydrogen peroxide and 1 teaspoon of dish soap together and then pour over the baking soda and work in deep into the carpet and then let dry. Variation 2. Mix 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide and 1 teaspoon of dish soap together and pour over the spot, saturate the spot and then pour baking soda over the spot and work in deep into the carpet. Then let dry.

4. Once dry vacuum the powder and the stain and the smell should be history.

Commercially available Pee spray method.

1. Find the spot (using the same techniques as listed above. Eyes, UV light or nose).

2. Spray one of two types of sprays, I’m currently using OUT! Pet Stain and Odor Remover,    and  OUT! Oxygen Activated Pet Stain & Odor Remover. There is actually a third that I have not used yet, OUT! Orange Oxy Pet Stain and Odor Remover, 32 oz.Of course there are other brands that you can buy and use. If you have a favorite, leave a comment about it. Now you spray the spot until wet. Most will say allow the spot to stay wet for about 10 minutes, then remove the moisture with a pee pad and stepping on the stain until the pee pad stops absorbing the moisture.

3. Allow to dry. Smell and stain should be gone.

The last and most aggressive stain remover is the carpet cleaner!

You can rent one from the local super market or you can buy one. Since I have Dachshunds and I foster, I bought one. Actually I have bought 3, two broke and the third is relatively new. I started out with the BISSELL ProHeat 2X Healthy Home Full Sized Carpet Cleaner, 66Q4, it worked well and we had it for a few years and then we broke the plastic “dome” where the water is sucked up. It wasn’t a defect or a matter of wear, it was a matter of dropping and stepping on it. So then we bought the BISSELL DeepClean Lift-Off Full Sized Carpet Cleaner, 66E1, in concept this would be great if you cleaned a lot of cars or had a lot of steps, or even small stains, but I really didn’t think it worked as good as the previous Bissell when it was together and we ended up breaking the hand held wand when it was apart. The hose tore and made the unit unusable. So I went out and did some research and found the  Hoover MaxExtract 60 PressurePro Carpet Deep Cleaner, FH50220, so far I like this the best. It has a unique feature where it blows dry warm air over the carpet to dry it faster. When ever you use a carpet cleaner you need to use hot water and of course rug shampoo. Each maker has their brand of shampoos in different formulas. Choose the formula you think that will do the best job.

1. Locate the spot using the techniques above.

2. I like to pretreat the spot with either the vinegar and water mix or the commercial sprays.  Then I prepare the machine.

3. I like to go over the carpet about 4 times with the hot water/solution spraying the area. Then I go back over the area with just the machine suctioning up the water and dirt. I do this until I can’t see any more water being sucked up. I do my entire rug this way. I do small stains this way too with the hand held nozzle. After all is said and done, your rug should smell better and the stain should be gone.

Sometimes, the stains return even if the dog has not reused the spot. I’m not a carpet expert, but I have been told, that this is because the stain has soaked into the bottom of the carpet and or the carpet pad may need to be removed and or replaced.

I’m not sure why some pee stains glow under a UV light. I couldn’t find a definite answer on the web, but I’m going to go out on a limb and say it is because of the phosphorous content of the urine. The UV light makes the phosphorous glow, thats also why some white shirts and shoe laces glow as well. Below are three pee stains, two are invisible, but glow under UV light and the third is a visible stain that does not glow.

This is an invisible pee stain stain. Invisible Pee stain

Comment Repair.

Hello Everyone,

We sorry that everyone has been  having problems posting comments. We just found out and have been wondering why we haven’t been receiving comments. A big part of what we do, is having a nice interaction with our followers, so we can all learn. Our spam protector was preventing everyone from posting, so we have disabled that for now and will be looking to find another spam protector. Thank you for your under standing.

If you are a rescue and or know of a dog rescue, we now post dogs needing homes on our website under the “Dog” heading on Wednesdays and Senior dogs under the “senior” heading on Sundays. Please up load the photos and dog info under the right heading oe email us at daisysrescue@comcast.net .

Thank you for your support and under standing.

Daisy.
