With proper care, the average lifespan for most dogs can be up to 15 years. Meanwhile, the average lifespan for most domesticated rabbits is between 8 and 12 years. It’s no wonder that many people refer to pets as their “lifelong companions.” Pets are indeed our loyal friends for life. Of course, this means that pet ownership is a huge responsibility that takes a lot of time and dedication. If you’ve been thinking of getting a new pet, here are some questions to ask yourself...
Microwaves use high-frequency waves called non-ionizing radiation. This type of energy vibrates the water molecules in food at the rate of 2.5 million times per second, resulting in rapidly heated food. Conventional cooking on a stovetop transfers thermal energy at a slow rate through the heating of outer material which transfers heat to the food inside. Any time you “cook” food you’re changing its molecular structure. Overcooking food by any means can rob food of vitality, enzymes, and nutrients. The question is, how fast do these processes occur inside a microwave oven and what effects do microwaves have on food?
Flea problems do not actually stem from the actual presence of fleas, but from health-related and/or environmental circumstances that allow these parasites to wreak havoc upon your weakened pet. If your pet’s health is overwhelmed with problems of poor digestion, over-vaccination, food allergies, and inadequate waste elimination, then their ability to deal with fleas will be greatly reduced.
INVEST IN GOOD FOOD
Most people think buying a grocery store brand for pennies a pound is a great way to save money. In reality, foods from grocery stores or Wal-Mart and even foods like Pro-plan, Science Diet, and Iams are full of corn, wheat, meat by-products (parts are not fit for human consumption), and preservatives. Feeding one of these foods is almost a guarantee of allergies, liver disease, or cancer. Spending a bit more to buy super premium food can save you hundreds in the long run. A cat/dog that eats quality food that is naturally preserved is less susceptible to developing diseases and has a healthier immune system, which helps them fight contagious illnesses. Spending a little more on food can mean saving hundreds or thousands on vet bills.
