PETS ARE CLAIRVOYANT

They see through superficiality like a plastic bag. Our pets wear their hearts on their furry sleeves and let us know exactly how they feel about everything we give them, good or bad. Whether they are excited or tired, healthy or ill, their bodies and spirit are a living reflection of how they feel on the inside. The natural honesty of pets is what inspires us to create the best products possible for their health, well-being and happiness.

HOW TO UNDERSTAND YOUR PET

While our pets can’t speak, they’re always communicating with us through their body language and vocalizations. Although things like displays of affection and happiness are usually pretty clear, we can learn a lot if we know what to look for.

 
 

Ears


Your dogs ears are often quick indications of their mood and interest. A relaxed, comfortable dog will hold its ears naturally. Raised ears signal alertness, while ears flattened back against the head indicate anger or fear. Listening to your dog can be as easy as looking at its ears.

Hair


Unlike humans, a dog’s hair reacts along with their mood. When a dog is calm and relaxed, their hair will lie flat on their bodies, but when a dog is angry or afraid, the hair on their shoulders and spines will stand up. This is known as “piloerection,” and is the canine equivalent to goose bumps on us.

Tail


A wagging tail is definitely the most well-known indicator of happiness in a dog, but that appendage can tell you much more. A tail held low between the legs shows nervousness, and if it is tucked all the way to the belly, it indicates fear, or submission. A stiff tail pointed high into the air indicates an alert dog, or one that is standing its ground at a perceived challenge.
 

 

Territory


By their nature, cats are territorial animals that choose their habitat based on access to reliable food sources. Even as pets, territory is equally important. Your cat will have its favorite places around the house, yard, and even the neighborhood if allowed to roam. Keeping things such as the location of food and water, places to rest, and their litter box consistent will make your cat feel comfortable and at home.

Sleep


You’ve probably noticed your cat naps a lot. In fact, felines regularly doze between 12 to 16 hours a day, and sometimes as much as 20 hours. This is because as natural predators, they need ready energy reserves for intense bursts for hunting, even if they’re just pouncing on their favorite toy. Cats are crepuscular by nature, meaning they’re most active during the twilight hours of dawn and dusk.

Scratching


While it might leave your furniture, rugs, and plants a little worse for wear, scratching is an important part of your cat’s day. They do it to stretch, to groom, and to mark their territory. While scratching may be an annoyance to you, it’s generally an indication of a healthy cat.
