Pipolino Mobile and Adjustable Food Dispenser Provides Pets with a Healthy and Natural way of Eating

Many animals have a tendency to devour their food during mealtimes. Pets that eat rapidly are more likely to face various health issues like choking, vomiting, gastrointestinal discomfort or food bloat, to name a few. Designed by a veterinarian, Pipolino’s mobile and adjustable dry food dispenser allows pets to find food as they would in nature, which promotes both physical and mental balance. Animals have the ability to roll Pipolino on the ground or in trough in order to dispense kibble slowly and chase or “hunt” for their foodPipolino provides countless benefits and helps to avoid many common problems today’s pets face such as boredom, over eating, obesity, bad digestion, physical inactivity, aggression, and the ingesting of foreign bodies. 

Eating quickly is a fairly common behavior for pets. Depending on the animal, there are many reasons as to why. Take the canine for example; a dog may eat rapidly due to the competitive instinct that is often seen in the wild when wolves bring down prey. The animal that eats faster is in a better position to survive and pass along its genes. This scenario is especially seen in multi-dog householdswhere speed eating tendencies are increased due to competing with their fellow pack members. 

 

Whether a dog is eating too quickly because he’s in competition mode or simply indulges too fast because he loves the taste of his food; not taking the time to chew larger pieces of kibble can cause them to ingest a significant amount of air. When this occurs, the food will most likely come back up by regurgitation or vomiting. After this happens a pet owner may feel uncertain if their dog or cat has received an adequate amount of nutrition during their meal time. Vomiting will also leave the animal hungry more frequently throughout the day, which can lead to a desire for more food and increased begging. Let’s face it, most pet owners are weak when it comes to those adorable begging eyes! With 80 million U.S dogs and cats at risk from obesity, it’s important that pet parents stay mindful of their pet’s meal intake and avoid overfeeding. 

For over ten years, Pipolino has been the only way of feeding pets that combines all individual advantages, without the disadvantages of bowls, anti-glutton bowls, fixed and mobile food distributors. Pipolino is the only anti-glutton bowl that provides physical activity and slow enough ingestion that avoids overconsumption, satisfies the appetite and improves digestionIn fact, Pipolino is taught in French Veterinary Schools for the prevention and treatment of excess weight and digestive disorders, as well as behavioral diseases such as bulimia, obesity, dirtiness, aggressiveness, depression, inactivity.

 

Additional Features of Pipolino Include

 

• Fits all brands (Royal Canin, Hills, Friskies, Frolic, Proplan, etc.), sizes and shapes of croquettes, pellets, or any other dry food. 
• Contains a quantity of pellets allowing to feed one or many animals (depending on the choice of the model) during a meal, for one day, or for a weekend. 
• Enables to modify, by simple adjustment, the ease of distribution of food, which trains the animal gradually and gently to eat slowly.
• Designed so that all the croquettes coming out are immediately eaten, don’t scatter on the floor, don’t get crushed and don’t collect dust on the ground. 
• It has been designed in order to not roll under the furniture where the animal would not be able to recover it. 
• Made of shocks-resistant, recyclable, food-grade quality materials, which ensure a very good conservation of the inner food.

 

Retailing for $24.90, Pipolino is affordable to all budgets. Pet families utilizing Pipolino daily will have great peace of mind knowing that they are investing in their pet’s mental and physical health, as well as save money spent on pet food thanks to its decreased food consumption featuresPipolino offers a two year (parts and labor) guarantee for any defect or component breakage under normal conditions of use.

Prana Pets CBD Oil

Beginning of December, we decided to go forward with Cami’s TPLO surgery for her right hind leg since she was limping a lot after the park and walks. Her ‘partial tear’ was getting more noticeable and at the age of 2, we thought it won’t be fair for her to feel this way the rest of her long puppy life. So we had the surgery and I immediately joined multiple Facebook groups and support groups for TPLO recovery. This is a major surgery. Meaning that they have to actually saw her bone and reconnect the alignment of her knee to not longer knee an CCL for support. They change the biomechanics of her leg so she has more of a ‘human’ leg than a dog leg now.

During her recovery, I had the chance to use CBD oils from Prana Pets. Here is some info about them below.

It is easy to add Prana Pets CBD to Cami’s food every day and there was a noticeable difference in her demeanor and recovery has been smooth. We are done 1 month of 3 of her recovery and there is still a long time until she can go back to ‘normal’ life but I am glad we have all the supplements to help her in the meantime. Find out more about CBD and how it can help your pet on www.pranapets.com

CBD Oil for Pets is a safe, gentle and nutritive CBD supplement for pets of all ages.  100% Colorado Grown.  Money back guarantee.  Full Spectrum Oil which includes Terpenes

 

  •  Healthy digestion and appetite
  •  Inflammation & pain throughout the body
  •  Nausea & other digestive problems
  •  Anxiety, nervousness & stress
  •  Seizure intensity & frequency
  •  Healthy skin & fur growth

Witnessing your pet experience a seizure can be downright terrifying. For some animals, this could be a one-time experience, however in most cases, seizure recur and could even happen on a regular basis. It’s important to remember that seizures can happen unexpectedly with any breed and at any age. With this said, it’s important to be prepared and learn the best ways to react in order to help your pet properly recover. In those very scary moments, you may feel like a helpless observer, but please remember that you are far from it!

Predictive Behaviors: Looking out for the signs of a seizure is vital for safety. This is especially helpful for epileptic pets who have had seizures in the past.

• Look out for these common signs that a seizure is on the way: pacing, acting really anxious or clingy, exhibit a “far-away look” (staring  into space), or confusion.
• For some pets the signs are obvious. However, in other pets the signs may be really subtle and difficult to determine. If your pet does show signs, you can prepare to remove them from any dangerous situation such as crossing the street, visiting a dog park, swimming at the lake, etc.

 

Safety: During your pet’s seizures, you’ll want to keep these tips in mind.

• You should never move your pet unless they are in danger. Although it looks like they are in extreme distress, your pet is not conscious nor in pain. It’s best just to leave them be. Instead, make the space they are in as safe as possible. Move chairs, tables, block the staircase, etc.
• Don’t hold them close, pin them down or try to cuddle them. This will not benefit your pet and could potentially result in an injury.
• Keep yourself safe. Your pet will most likely be completely  unaware of their surroundings or behavior during and after a seizure. Immediately after a dog experiences a seizure, he or she can become anxious, agitated and could even lose their sight temporarily. The sweetest dogs could be prone to bite while in this state, so it may be best to keep your space.

 

Recovery: Depending on your pet and how long the seizure was, the recovery period can take a few minutes or it can take several hours.

• A seizure uses a lot of energy so your pet will likely be disoriented and really tired after. They may have trouble standing, walk in circles or appear to seem “drunk”. It’s best to leave your pet nice and quiet without stimulating them. Often, they will want to sleep it off.
• Unless your pet has never had a seizure before there’s no need to contact a veterinarian. If you notice that a few hours post seizure the symptoms aren’t improving or they’re worsening, then it’s a good time to contact the professionals.

 

Remain Calm: It may feel impossible to remain calm during and after a seizure episode, but it’s a crucial step in helping them to recover.

• Animals are extremely sensitive to our energy. With this said, remaining calm will help them to feel more at easeonce they come to consciousness.
• Avoid moving frantically, making loud noises or yelling. Your pet is extremely vulnerable to loud sounds after a seizure. Close the windows. Maintain a cool interior with the shades drawn and minimal light. Keep the doors closed. A quiet and peaceful environment is best.

 

Administer CBD: More and more pet owners today are realizing that synthetic drugs are not the only way to treat animals prone to seizures. There has been great success using natural solutions with cannabidiol or CBD for seizures in pets(https://www.pranapets.com/products/cbd-for-pets).

• This substance is found in cannabis or marijuana. It’s not to be confused with THC or tetrahydrocannabinol, which is famous for the “high” in marijuana. CBD Oil for pets is the active ingredient in hemp that doesn’t have psychoactive properties. It’s more of a relaxation agent.
• Your dog can benefit from CBD by taking it on a regular basis. In fact, many families see a dramatic change in their pet’s seizure frequencies with its use.
• CBD can be administered to your pet in two forms: by pill or through oil added to their food. It is also safe on the animal’s organs. Synthetic drugs designed for seizures tend to negatively impact certain organs, such as the liver.
• A recent study about the effects of CBD on epilepsy in dogs, conducted at Colorado State University, has seen positive results for controlling epileptic seizures in dogs. Dr. Stephanie McGrath, who specializes in neurology, is leading the study and although the official results are not yet available, she says that they look promising because in the clinical trials shocking 89% of the dogs showed decreased frequency of seizures.
• “Around 3 to 5 percent of all dogs have genetic epilepsy and 14 million dogs are affected by arthritis,” McGrath stated at the 2017 Cannabis in Veterinary Medicine Symposium, “These serious, costly medical issues afflict humans as well.” McGrath believes that although CBD isn’t the miracle cure-all for those suffering from such issues — whether humans or animals — it can be an important alternative for both.
• Prana Pets, a leading brand of CBD/Hemp and other herbal pet remedies, offers a Seizure Symptom Supportsupplement, which helps to temporarily relieve symptoms of seizures in dogs, cats and other pets. A few of its features include: Soothing and regulating to the nervous system, relieves typical symptoms of seizures and seizure related conditions, reduces the frequency and intensity of symptoms of cat and dog Seizures with regular use, reduces symptoms of stressful situations, eases anxiety in high strung or nervous pets, supports stable, balanced function of brain and nervous system. Having this supplement on hand is a great idea for all pet parents, especially those with pets who suffer from reoccurring seizures. Learn more at: https://www.pranapets.com/products/seizure-support-bundle/

Seizure Diary: If your pet is having seizures on a regular basis, it’s a smart idea to start a diary to track the episodes. Be sure to note what your pet was doing when the seizures started and if there were signs leading up to it. Jot down the exact time and date and how long the seizure lasted. This will help you and your veterinarian determine if this is a developing problem or if the seizures are getting more frequent or severe.

Special Treat: Did you know that ice cream could help your canine recover from a seizure? Once your pup is conscious, a small amount of vanilla ice cream may help bring back their blood sugar to normal levels. You don’t want to give too much. A tablespoon should do the trick! It’s also a great way to distract your pet’s mind and perk them up after a harrowing experience.

Seizures are a very alarming thing to experience with your pet. Remember that you are not alone in this. Talking to your veterinarian can help ease concerns, and keeping these tips in mind will help significantly with their recovery.
