This Pet Business Software Is FREE....Check My Review Out Here....

This may well be of interest to anyone with a fledgling pet business, or even an established business looking to cut costs or simplify/upgrade their operation...

I came across a site that offers a FREE pet business online scheduling and management software, and after spending a little time on the demo site I can honestly say I was reasonably impressed.

Pitched at pet sitters, dog walkers, daycare businesses and groomers, this tool offers the following benefits:
  • Storage and management of client records
  • Storage and management of pet records
  • Appointment reminders
  • Ability to send invoice/receipts
  • Ability to send emails
As the site is American, I was pleased to see the functionality to display records in pound sterling for UK users.

I also liked the level of detail that can be added as many of you know that it is imperative that any pet business should keep detailed records of animals in their charge.

At zero cost, I think it is well worth checking out the demo to see if it would be suitable to your business needs. I know that when I started out with my first pet business I would have welcomed the opportunity to have checked a site like this out and would possibly have used it or at least saved myself a lot of time by mirroring some of the templates on the site.

A Worldwide Online Pet First Aid Course That Is Ideal For Pet Owners

Aside from taking care of your pets daily needs and giving them the love and protection that they need, being able and prepared to help your pet in an emergency is the single most important thing an owner can do.

As a former Pet First Aid Instructor, I am often asked which course I recommend to owners of cats and dogs and why?

The company I recommend is experienced in training both pet owners and pet professionals and I believe that their courses would be of value to my pet owning and pet professional readership.

I disclose at this point that I am a former instructor with the company that I recommend and for that still receive a tiny commission for recommending the low-cost course below but I am happy to give it the "thumbs up" as:

  • The course is a recognised one and is provided by a genuine general training provider of human first aid and many other courses.
  • The Pet First Aid courses are instructional, broad topic based and easy to follow.
  • On completion, you can print off a certificate that has value
  • The courses are low cost
  • Courses be taken at your leisure at a time to suit (when you are relaxed and ready to absorb information)
  • Courses can be taken by anyone worldwide 
  • My tiny commission is not paid by you or loaded into the low course cost.
  • I have negotiated a discount code that you can use to obtain a 10% discount on the normal Pet First Aid course cost of £24.95 or around $35.50 (at todays rate) plus VAT
  • The value of obtaining information that may help your pet in an emergency or to a small pet business that deals with clients pets is, I believe, immeasurable should an emergency occur and you need to administer Pet First Aid before veterinary attention can be sought.
The video based training can be completed in less than a couple of hours and refresher videos are emailed to students periodically after completion of the Pet First Aid courses.

The Pet First Aid syllabus includes:
  • Introduction
  • The vet and your role in first aid
  • Keeping your pet safe in an emergency
  • Car accidents
  • Pet proofing your home
  • How pets show pain
  • Checking your pet's health
  • Pet accidents and first aid
  • Breathing and respiratory problems including choking
  • Dog CPR
  • Drowning
  • Shock
  • Broken bones
  • Spinal injury and moving an injured pet
  • Tending to your pet
  • Controlling bleeding
  • Dressings and bandages
  • Paw problems
  • Ears, Eyes and Mouth
  • Bandaging the ear
  • Bandaging the tail 
  • Illnesses
  • Poisoning, Bites and Stings
  • Burns and temperature related problems
  • Seizures and Epilepsy
  • Different types and sizes of animals
  • The older dog
  • Cats
  • Small dog care
  • Puppies and young animals
  • Summary of Pet First Aid
  • Pet First Aid kits
  • Summary

Only Dogs And Humans Share This Trait...

Animal researchers have found that, during the course of their domestication, dogs have learnt the art of seeking visual clues from the eyes of humans.

Dogs and humans are the only two species known to seek visual clues from another's eyes, and dogs only do this with us!

How High Can A Cat Jump?

Here's a snippet to think about the next time you watch a cat jump onto the kitchen side or onto a fence...

Cats can jump around five times their own height, to put this into perspective...the average human would have to jump over two buses to jump five times their own height.

Bet You Watch Which Way Your Dog Wags Its Tail After Reading This.....

In 2007, a study was published in the journal 'Current Biology' that showed that the different sides of a dog's brain will dictate which way the dog will wag its tail!

A dog will wag its tail to the right side of its body when he is feeling happy, confident or positive about approaching something because the left side of a dog's brain (which controls the right-sided tail wag) specialises in behaviours such as "approach" and "energy enrichment."

Conversely, a dog will wag its tail to the left when it is feeling scared or wants to retreat from a situation as the right side of its brain (which controls the left-sided tail wag) controls the feelings of "energy expenditure" and "withdrawal."

Don't be embarrassed to admit that you're going to check this out the next time your dog wags its tail to the left or right....I did too! :-)

Did You Know This About A Cat's Brain?

Studies of the feline brain have shown that a cat's brain is more similar to the brain of a human than dogs.
Research has shown that humans and cats have pretty much identical sections of the brain that control emotions and our feline friends seem to think in a similar fashion to us humans. The research also showed that cats receive input from the 5 senses, just as we do, and process data in a similar way to us.

Do Dogs Really Have 3 Eyelids?

Aside from the upper and lower eyelids, dogs DO have a further eyelid known as a "haw" which is a protective lid designed to help keep moisture in a dog's eyes.

The haw can be found at the inner corner of the lower eyelid in our canine friends.

How Much Time Does A Cat Spend Grooming Itself?

Research has shown that a healthy adult cat will spend, on average, around a third of their waking hours grooming itself. There are of course other factors that will increase or decrease a cat's level of preening and this figure should be taken as an average in a normal range.
