    Going Green, Herb life

    Two Cent Tuesdays

    Herbs are a part of nature that can be known to grow right in your backyard. Who knew that herbs are canine cancer-fighting, breath-freshening, stomach-soothing herbs that are safe for dogs?! Even though fall is here and winter is around the corner (or maybe you don't have access or room for a small house garden there are other remedies), grow herbs indoor this winter!

    Some tips:
    - You will eat better
    - You will save money
    - Fresh ingredients for you and your canine
    - An herb garden adds an attractive, economic aspect to the kitchen

    More tips on how to grow herbs indoors this winter via Better Homes and Gardens

    Oregano - Not just for pizza, oregano is high in antioxidants and flavonoids and is reported as an antimicrobial. {For the non biologists out there} that's term for a drug used to treat a microbial infection. This non-toxic herb has been used to help with digestive problems, diarrhea, and gas. Research using the oil of Oregano has also shown anti fungal properties. The oil is more concentrated, so you want to keep the dosage small. (15 & 30 ml) With the oil of Oregano it is resourceful and can be used and found in forms of ear drops, first aid gel, bed & body spray, shampoo therapy, toothpaste, dental spray and dental treats.

    Rosemary - This good-for-dogs herb is high in iron, calcium, and Vitamin B6. It has also been shown to act as a antioxidant {again for the non biologists, that is term for a man-made natural substances that may prevent or delay some types of cell damage}. FYI even though this is high in iron it is not to take the place of an iron supplement if one is needed! Along with Oregano, Rosemary is one of the best herbs to grow indoors.

    Peppermint - Mhmm, this herb historically has been used to help soothe upset stomaches, reduce gas, nausea, and help with travel sickness. In addition, research is being done which shows that it may have radioprotective effects and can be used to reduce radiation-induced sickness and mortality in animals undergoing chemotherapy. BUT there is no reported toxicity for dogs although very high doses may result in liver or kidney problems. #BeAware

    Basil - This leafy herb, well-known for its delicious role in pesto, has antioxidant, antiviral, and antimicrobial properties. The next time you’re cooking with fresh basil, sprinkle a pinch of the chopped herb on top of your dog’s dinner. (They'll thank you later).

    Parsley - Another leafy herb commonly seen as a garnish on our plates is a source of flavonoids, antioxidants, and vitamins. It is often added to dog treats as a breath freshener or used to soothe the stomach. FYI very important to know, “Spring parsley,” a member of the carrot family that resembles parsley is TOXIC to dogs and cats due to high levels of furanocoumerin which can cause photosensitisation and ocular toxicity.

    Now if you're wondering...How do I prepare this?
    Use fresh or dried, adding a small sprinkle (a pinch for small dogs, a teaspoon for large dogs) of these herbs to your dog’s food is a safe way to give them a little boost in nutrition. You can also use them to make your favorite dog treat recipe a bit healthier and more flavorful. These help the body’s immune system combat some of the diseases commonly associated with aging- including canine cognitive dysfunction, cancer, and reduced immune function. As noted, however, there are potential downsides and they should be used with care. #BeAware
    It is best to work in conjunction with your dog’s health care professional. Sometimes the monitoring of a dog’s blood work is necessary to ensure continued safe use. For maximum efficacy, make sure the herbs and spices you use are not old. If the spices have been languishing in your cupboard for years, toss them out and replace them; their health-affirming properties will be diminished if they’ve been sticking around for a while.

    Meet Sebastian, Domestic Shorthair, Age 3 months

    Meet Our Friends As Told By Katie V.

    "Two kittens were born on August 16, Sebastian being one of them. Unfortunately, the second kitten did not survive. We never planned on keeping any kittens, and we were going to find them good homes. But because Sebastian was the only kitten, my family and I bonded so much with him. He is so funny and naughty! Sebastian is almost always by my side, and I can't imagine ever giving him up!

    If Sebastian could splurge on one item, it would probably be tuna. But I would splurge on bow ties for him! He currently has 9! If Sebastian could talk, he would probably be the "class clown"; very witty, funny, and sarcastic. He is always getting into trouble, and I post these "shenanigans" on his Instagram daily. Sebastian is the most spoiled kitty that I have ever owned, and he definitely knows it! When he gets frustrated with me (not paying attention to him) or his toys, he will make the funniest little noise that sounds like an ostrich. He loves to cuddle and purr with me after a long play session. could not ask for a sweeter boy!"

    Freddie, French Bulldog, Age 6 months

    Meet Our Friends As Told By Shona G.

    "Freddie loves to sleep in behind the pillows on the couch, he gets himself in some awkward sleeping positions. If I leave the table unattended when having lunch...blink and Freddie might rob it. He waits for the perfect moment. If freddie could train me to do one thing, it would be for me to sleep in the dog bed and for him to sleep in his moms bed.

    He's the Pinocchio of the dog world :). Freddie secretly wants to eat string cheese and ice cream all day. If ever ran away, he would go home. It actually happened once before at the park. When I got home, after hours of looking for him, I found him at the front door. Guessing he wanted to go back to bed. Freddie thinks the vet is the enemy.

    Freddie would love to have a life time supply of pig ears or squeaky toys. He hates walking in the rain more than anything, he's afraid of the rain!! He finds the tinniest dry spot and try's to fit his whole body in. He always thinks other pets are going to want to play with him but it doesn't always work out that way.

    He would rather be left to sleep all day or hang out the car window. Freddie wants everyone to know he's in the room and he's everyone's friend whether they like it or not. He would be caught dead wearing his red hoodie. Freddie loves playing football more than anything, he's very good at it and going football training with dad twice a week. He thinks I’m his mommy and treat giver!! He knows I'm the soft one.

    Freddie think’s he's human, he wants to be a real boy!! Freddie would get rid of all house rules, he hates being told what to do, he does it but always not willingly. He mostly looks like Yoda from Star Wars. One thing you must know about Freddie is that he thinks he's a human and wants to be involved in everything that humans do and he is the nosiest dog in the world!!"

    Yoda, Maine Coon, Age 3

    Meet Our Friends As Told By Amy B.

    "Yoda is a Maine Coon with a funny, unique personality. I got Yoda 3 years ago in a cardboard box from the back of a building. He was such a little fluffball! Being so young when he was taken away from his mother, we had to bottle feed him - what a cute and messy task!

    Yoda got his name from the Star Wars series character "Yoda." The very first night that we spent together, Star Wars happened to be on and we watched it together. Yoda stayed up for the entire movie! As I was watching I tried to find a name that would be suitable to my little ball of unblinking fluff...Yoda seemed to fit perfectly.

    As Yoda grew up, he became rather feisty and we started coming up with nicknames - Yodster, Vader, Yodi, Jungle Cat, Squirrel Butt (because of his fluffy tail), and finally Cotton Paws.Yoda is very fickle. He loves pets but only when he wants them but will always come for treats. I call him my treat mongrel."
