The World According to Cooper- Growing Up is Easy When You are Me!


It’s my favorite time of the year again. MY BIRTHDAY!!!!  I mean I love spring and fall and Thanksgiving for the turkey and Christmas for the presents but my birthday should be a National Holiday.  Kids shouldn’t have to go to school and me and my mom shouldn’t have to go to work.  It is the best day of the year.  I’m not sure if you are keeping count, but I turn 4 this year.  I think it is amazing the amount of toys that I have gotten in my very short 4 years on this planet.


Here is a picture for you to see my work space. This doesn’t even come close to what I have at home.  I am very aware of how fortunate a little boy that I am.  And even if I didn’t have any toys, I have the best mom that loves me more than anything on the planet.  I have great friends at work, both human and furry.  Here is a picture of me hanging out with my bud Barren and his “big” sis Dottie. I don’t look as happy as I actually was in that picture since my mom was away for a little while.  I was hanging out my aunt Kim.

Anyway, in 4 short years I have a lot to be thankful for. I have everything that a furry kid could ask for.  I promise to work on getting my birthday made into a Holiday next year!!

Talk to you soon,

Celebrating Seniors: 5 FAQs About Older Cats


Watching your new kitty zip across the room in pursuit of the magical red laser dot, you thought she’d be a kitten forever. Now your aging cat spends more time napping than playing and doesn’t seem as interested in eating her food as you’d like. Most cats start to slow down as they age. Some get sick or need extra help to remind them to eat, drink, or clean themselves. Get answers to frequently asked questions about your cat’s golden years.

When would my cat be considered a senior citizen?

Let’s put it in human terms. When your cat turns 10, she can join the AARP. She might start to feel her age and slow down a little. When she turns 12, she can retire. She’s officially a senior cat. Many cats live to be 15-20 years old, depending on their health and breed.


Does my senior cat need a different diet?

Not every senior cat needs to change foods. Senior formula dry foods aren’t significantly different from adult formulas, so let your cat eat her current food if she likes it. Your vet can help you choose the right food for your cat depending on her health. For example, glucosamine supplements reduce pain from arthritis, and a special K/D wet food can keep your cat’s kidneys in tip-top shape.

Senior cats can become dehydrated more easily. You can help your senior cat by supplementing her meals with wet food or tuna juice. Cat fountains are another great way to make sure your cat gets enough to drink every day.

Some senior cats don’t eat as much as they used to. Dental disease is a common cause, so make sure your cat’s teeth and gums look healthy. Don’t be afraid to ask your vet about dental cleanings. Senior cats in good health can undergo dental anesthesia, especially for severe periodontitis. You can encourage your cat to eat and keep her teeth healthy at the same time with food toppings like indigo™ Fresh Dental Sauce.

What health changes should I watch out for?

Cats age like people do. They can lose their hearing, eyesight, and memory. Symptoms of senility include wandering, meowing, disorientation, and avoiding social interaction. Older cats also become stressed more easily. You can help your senior cat by maintaining routines and introducing change slowly.

Some diseases tend to affect older cats more than younger cats. It’s often hard to tell if your cat is sick. Cats are good at hiding pain, and many of these symptoms seem like normal aging changes. For example, if your cat stops using the litter box it could be because she has developed diabetes, which causes her to use the bathroom more. Since the box is getting dirtier faster, she finds other places to relieve herself.

Here are some common and uncommon symptoms of common age-related diseases:

  • Arthritis – decreased activity, aggression, litter box problems, mobility issues, stiffness
  • Hyperthyroidism – hyperactivity, spraying, weight loss, greasy coat, drinking more, eating more, vomiting
  • Diabetes – drinking more, peeing more, litter box problems, weight loss
  • Inflammatory bowel disease – using the bathroom more, vomiting, constipation, litter box problems, weight loss
  • Cancer – lumps, sores, eating less, difficulty peeing, aggression, weight loss
  • Kidney failure – litter box problems, weight loss, vomiting, decreased activity, constipation, drinking more

Do I need to do anything special to care for my senior cat?

  • Brush your cat more often. Older cats can have trouble grooming themselves. Brush your cat regularly to improve her coat and circulation. It’s also a great time to give her a quick physical and look for any dental problems, lumps, or changes in her coat.
  • Don’t forget annual vet checks. Your vet can test for diseases and help prevent problems later. If you notice any changes in your cat’s behavior, you can bring her in sooner. Some vets recommend a 6-month checkup cycle after your cat turns 10.
  • Watch for weight changes. Overweight cats have a higher chance of getting diseases. Now’s the time to help her lose weight if she starts to get chubby. If your cat is losing weight and you haven’t changed her diet or exercise, this could be a symptom of an underlying disease.
  • Give her easy access to everything. Make it easier for her to get in the box by adding a ramp or getting a box with lower sides. Put her food and water on the ground, and make sure she doesn’t have to use stairs to eat, drink, or use the bathroom.

Should I adopt a senior cat?

Senior cats are great if you’re looking for a feline companion with a stable, establishedcat in lap personality. Seniors are more likely to sit in your lap than attack your toes, and they often know proper house etiquette like peeing in the litter box instead of on the carpet. A senior cat’s personality is pretty much fixed; you don’t have to worry if she’ll be as cuddly at home as she is at the shelter. On the other hand, that kitten in the shelter might turn into a completely different cat when she grows up.

Senior cats are also less likely to be adopted. Many senior cats spend their last remaining years alone in a shelter. Adopting a senior means you’re not only saving a life but you’re also giving that older cat the best care she could get for the rest of her life. If you’re worried about extra medical costs, talk to your local shelter about low-cost vet care and pet insurance.

Pet Cancer Awareness Month: My Personal Story of Canine Cancer, Clinical Signs, and Quality of Life


By: Dr. Patrick Mahaney, VMD

For pet owners, learning that one’s beloved canine or feline companion has cancer is one of the worst imaginable conversations that can be had with their veterinarian. The diagnosis of cancer is life-altering for pets and their human caretakers. Our daily routines with our pets take on new meaning and we perpetually question “how much time do we have left.” Concerns about the financial, emotional, logistical, and energetic input required to treat a pet’s cancer create additional burden on the owner’s stressed mental state.

My Personal Experience with Canine Cancer:

Not only do I convey the cancer diagnosis to my clients, but I‘ve also received the bad news for my own dog, Cardiff. As a veterinarian, my circumstance is different than that experienced by most pet owners, as I’m well aware of the challenges faced by anyone caring for their beloved canine or feline companion during cancer treatment.

I’ve been involved in the process of diagnosing Cardiff’s cancer from the beginning. I actually suspected Cardiff had a stomach, intestinal, or another abdominal organ tumor based on the clinical signs signs he exhibited, including:

  • anorexia (decreased appetite)
  • regurgitation (bringing up partially digested food)
  • lethargy (seeking rest over activity)

I also assisted on the ultrasound discovery and surgical removal of Cardiff’s intestinal mass and delivered the bad news to myself upon receiving the histopathology (microscopic evaluation of cells) report. Cardiff had T-Cell Lymphoma (malignant white blood cell cancer), but fortunately it turned out to be isolated to the loop of intestine that was surgically removed and had not spread to any other tissues.

Cardiff’s cancer diagnosis wasn’t surprising to me, but the plan to put him through a 7-month-long chemotherapy course and and frequent diagnostics (blood testing, ultrasound, etc.) to increase the likelihood he’d have the best possible quality of life was quite daunting.

I’m glad I put Cardiff through chemotherapy, as he’s now cancer-free and I have my urban-trekking companion back!

Pet Cancer Awareness

November is National Pet Cancer Awareness Month, so I’m striving to help owners on a world-wide basis become more aware of the clinical signs of cancer and the variety of veterinary services available to treat our canine and feline companions.

Although animals and humans share some of the same cancer diagnoses, our pets cannot directly verbalize their health concerns to their owners or veterinarian. As the primary guardians of our pet’s health, we must keep a keen awareness of their day-to-day habits so that clinical signs of illness are recognized and evaluation by a veterinarian can be immediately sought.

I’m fortunate to work with the esteemed team of veterinary oncologists at the Veterinary Cancer Group (VCG) in Culver City, CA. In addition to providing cutting-edge cancer diagnostic testing and treatment, VCG educates clients on early recognition of illness through their 10 Warning Signs of Cancer in Dogs & Cats, including:

  1. Persistent change in appetite and/or water intake
  2. A lump that is enlarging, changing, or waxing and waning in size
  3. Progressive weight loss or weight gain
  4. Non-healing sore or infection, such as persistent nail bed infection
  5. Abnormal odor
  6. Persistent or recurring lameness
  7. Chronic vomiting or diarrhea
  8. Persistent or recurring cough
  9. Unexplained bleeding or discharge
  10. Difficulty swallowing, breathing, urinating, or defecating

Cancer Treatment There is Hope

The good news is that pets are surviving longer and overcoming cancer due to the numerous therapeutic options available. Cancer treatment has evolved to the extent that your pet’s disease may be resolved or well-managed through:

  • Surgery – A tumor can be surgically excised (cut out) from the body so that the entire mass can be evaluated microscopically (histopathology) and a definitive diagnosis can be reached. Surgery can also completely cure cancer if the margins are clean, which means that the mass has been completely excised and no detectable cancer cells remain in the body at the surgical site.
  • Radiation – Certain tumors cannot be surgically removed or cancerous cells may be left behind post-surgery if the margins extend deep into normal tissues. Therefore, radiation can be used to kill cancer cells, shrink tumor size, and improve comfort and quality of life.
  • Chemotherapy - There are a vast variety of injections (intravenous or intramuscular) or oral medications that kill cancer cells. The good news for animal patients is that chemotherapy is often used in lower doses than it is for humans and has a less-toxic effect. Chemotherapy is individually tailored for each patient, as there’s no “one-size-fits-all” approach and each animal’s tolerance of the drugs is different and must be closely monitored by the veterinarian and owner for side effects.
  • Nutrition – The body is best able to fight cancer when all parts are working optimally, so nutrition is a key component of cancer treatment. For all stages of a pet’s life, but especially during treatment for cancer, a whole food diet having an appropriate balance of fresh, moist meat, vegetables, fruits, and grains should be fed. Like with chemotherapy, there’s no one diet that is appropriate for all pets, so for my patients I focus on cooked foods that are either commercially available or home-prepared depending on the animal’s needs and the owner’s desires for convenience in the food-preparation process.
  • Complimentary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) – CAM is the main focus of my veterinary practice when treating cancer patients. Treatments I recommend include immune system supporting and natural anti-inflammatory nutraceuticals (supplements), blood moving and anti-cancer herbal remedies, and acupressure/massage and acupuncture. Chinese medicine food energy can also help the cancer patient, as foods having cooling energetic properties are used to clear the heat caused by cancer cell division and tissue inflammation.

As cliché as it sounds, staying positive and enjoying enjoy every moment with your pet is important for everyone involved in the disease management process. With the help of a support system (veterinarians, family, friends, etc.), pet owners must face illness in their companion canine or feline with an informed sense of realism about the possible outcomes. Even if a complete cure of cancer can’t be achieved for our pets, we owe it to them to provide the best quality of life possible.

Hit the Refresh Button This Fall!


The air is crisp, heaters are getting turned on, and crock pots are getting dusted off. Speaking of getting dusted off, are there other things in your home that need to be dusted off, tidied up, or tuned up for the cooler months? Probably! Here are a few fall freshening tips for around the house that not only benefit you, but your four-legged family members, too:

  • Vacuum upholstered furniture, especially if your cat or dog sheds a little (or a lot). Since the weather is cooling down, more people will be confined to the indoors or entertaining inside instead of outside. You probably want your guests bringing a dish to your fall pot luck or football Friday night party, not a lint roller! Make sure to get rid of any pet hair clinging to your furniture or stuck in the cracks of cushions. And, when spring arrives, you’ll have less to tend to.
  • Lilly snug as a bugGet cozy by laundering pillow covers, bedding, and blankets. Don’t forget your pet’s bed or blanket, too! If your pet’s bed has a zippered or removable cover, chances are that it is washer and dryer safe, so toss it in there with the other laundry items for a good, deep cleaning. If your pet’s bed doesn’t have a removable cover, check the tag on the bed to see if it’s OK to be tossed in the washer at least. Even if it’s not dryer-safe, you can just air dry it outside in the afternoon while the sun is shining.



  • Hit the refresh button this fall and add something fun and new to your home! The Himalayan Blue Drinkwell® Pagoda Fountain combines style and function to give you a fun home accessory that provides fresh, filtered water for your pet. That way, when you’re enjoying your hot cider that makes you feel so good, your pet is also enjoying constantly fresh water making him feel good, too! Himalayan Blue was the People’s Choice Vote Winner on the 2014 DIY Network™ Blog Cabin series on HGTV, so it’s sure to be a talking point with guests! Himalayan Blue Drinkwell Pagoda Fountain
  • Tidy up the kitchen counters by cleaning, removing, and storing away any appliances that haven’t been used recently. This will lead to an uncluttered kitchen and less work for you when family and friends visit for fall gatherings or holiday celebrations at your home. When cleaning your appliances, don’t forget to include your pet’s drinking fountain or automatic feeding device! Some pet fountains are even dishwasher safe, like our stoneware fountains, so that makes for super easy cleaning.
  • Stock up on supplies for the winter, such as furnace filters, to avoid any last minute or emergency trips to the store on dicey roads or in cold weather. When making your stock run to the store, don’t forget to snag items for your pets such as fountain filters or poop bags to ensure they’re also ready and stocked up for winter.

Thanksgiving for your Furry Family


fe11b63cd00ae26f7dc5170b6d372d98Movies paint the picture so well. The family is gathered around the table preparing to pass the potatoes when, out of the blue, the family pet jumps up and steals a turkey leg off the table. Everyone gasps and pushes their chairs back in unison, shocked at their ruined feast.

Don’t let that movie scene be you this year.

There are so many things you can do to prepare your pets for the influx of food and family this holiday season. Your family members should enjoy the company of your pet, not fear the repercussions of your pet’s actions. And your family’s pets they bring along? There are also solutions to make sure Aunt Susan’s cat is right at home when she visits. Here are three common furry family concerns you can fix before you pass the potatoes.

Doggie Drama

Begging pups are going to happen. What would you do if you couldn’t have the turkey on your plate? It’s a natural occurrence, but aggressively stealing food is when it becomes not okay. If you are concerned your pet might bug grandma or sneak food off your cousin’s plate when he turns his head, you may need a barrier between your pet and your plate. Try the Pawz Away® Mini Pet Barrier to give you a space about 5 feet in diameter of protection. Your pet will wear a collar that produces a static correction when they enter the off-limits zone. The correction will deter them from invading your space or your table.

House Guests

Introducing your pets to your Aunt’s cat can be a task. You may want to try having them in two separate designated spaces for the first part of her trip. Make sure your pets still have their normal areas to keep their routine, but block off a special space for her pet and to allow them to to get used to each other. Introduce them in short time periods, while making their time together fun (hint: toys and treats). Never leave the pets alone together. It’s a recipe for disaster. If you slowly introduce the pets, everyone has more time to adjust. If they don’t get along, give them their space, you know, like how you deal with your in-laws.

Stuffed as a Turkey

A ScatMat is also a great option to protect your counters.

A ScatMat is also a great option to protect your counters.

If you are like me, your family doesn’t adhere to the “No human food for the pets” philosophy. As Fido visits each house guest, you can bet that at least half of them will give him a handout. If you aren’t a strict mom, that’s fine, but if you have a hefty pup like I do, you may need to set some ground rules. I tell everyone as soon as they get to the house my pet is watching his weight. If they would like to give a treat, that’s fine, just make sure it is on his diet list. I give them the appropriate treats and a limit, like two a day, so at least he gets a little something extra. I can’t promise they won’t pass him food under the table, but at least you tried.

Something unexpected will always happen when you have family together. At least this year you can be ready for a few common holiday hazards.

Crafty Tails- Make a Personalized Scarf with Yor Pet on It!


If you are like me, you might have a dog or cat breed that is uncommon. I am always bummed that I can’t find the cute clock, or artwork with Australian Terriers. For this project, I was inspired by a cute silk scarf with Dalamatians all over it. What better way to prepare for the cold weather than a fun fall accessory? Read on to learn how to make your own personalized scarf with your pet on it.

What you need:

Your Supplies

Your Supplies

  • Fabric of your choosing (I used a stretch jersey)
  • Stamp in the shape of your animal Acrylic paint
  • Fabric painting medium Paint brushes (optional)
  • Needle and thread
  • Sewing machine or liquid stitch
  • Scissors
  • Cardboard to protect your surface


1. Prepare your Fabric

Sew carefully!

Sew carefully!

First, pick out a fabric you think is going to be cozy. I made mine in to an infinity scarf that wraps twice. The amount you need depends on how thick you want the scarf and how many times you would like to wrap it around your neck. Once you have cut it to your preferred length you will want to finish the edges (mine is about a foot and a half across and 3 yards long.) I sewed the length of the fabric on the sewing machine. An alternative for this step is using liquid stitch. If making an infinity scarf, don’t sew the short ends together yet! It is best to finish the long sides at this step so you know how far to the edges you can go with your stamping. Place your fabric on to the cardboard to prepare for stamping.

2. Stamping on your Image

Jack's perfect match!

Jack’s perfect match!

I bought a stamp of an Australian Terrier from the Australian Terrier Club of America. However, as an alternative I could use a stamp of any terrier breed. Next mix each of your paint colors with the fabric medium per the bottle instructions. The medium will make your paint washable. Paint colors can be realistic shades of your pet or fun like pink or blue. Because I was attempting to make the scarf look like Jack, I used a charcoal color and a metallic copper for fun. I painted the acrylic and medium combination on to the stamp with brushes for accuracy and then pressed it on to the fabric. For one color, you can press the stamp directly in the paint.  I was able to get 4 to 5 presses out of each paint application. As you can see, the details from the stamp did not translate on to the fabric, but that was okay with me! Also each pressing had a little less paint so I tried to distribute the stamp variations evenly through the rows. I eyeballed my stamping, but this could also be measured for accuracy. I continued on and covered the entire scarf with stamping.

Personalize with your pet's name

Personalize with your pet’s name

3. Personalizing Your Scarf

As a little something extra, I hand painted Jack’s name under a few of the images. I wore this scarf when competing with him in rally. This was before I had Lily, or I would have added her name too! Another idea would be to add cute words like “Woof” or “Meow.”

4. Finishing It Off

I let the paint dry for 24 hours before I sewed the short side together to make it an infinity scarf. I would not suggest liquid stitch for this end as it need to be sturdy to hang around your neck. Hand stitching is also an option for this last step. Heat set your fabric per the textile medium instructions. Now you’re done! The actual work time for this project is about 45 minutes plus the drying time. Now go out and stay warm in your new scarf!
