Kitten Care 101

They’re cute and fuzzy new additions to your household, but your kitten needs proper care and training to become a healthy, well-behaved adult cat. This new member of your family relies on your help in the earliest stage of their life. At Precise, we know kittens deserve proper love and care while growing up. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of information to make caring for your new kitten a smooth and successful process.

#1. They’re Vulnerable and Hungry

When born, kittens cannot fully see until their second or third week of life and cannot hear until about four weeks of age. At this most vulnerable stage, kittens need your attentiveness and the mother cat needs your help. When your cat gives birth, she becomes the sole source of protection, warmth and food for her new litter of kittens. You can help out, or tend to orphaned kittens, by making sure each kitten is being fed every few hours and stays warm 24/7. If caring for an orphaned kitten, feed them a kitten milk replacement formula.

#2. Purring is Important

Until their sight and hearing come in, kittens pay close attention to their mother’s purring. A primal instinct, purring is essential for the survival of newborn kittens. The vibrations help the kittens locate their mother as well as one another. While purring, the vibrations can also be used as a way to show and provide comfort. The mother will purr while her kittens nurse as a way to comfort them while they eat and the kittens will then purr back to show their contentment. Doubling as a safety measure, purring also helps cat mothers while delivering their litter. Purring releases endorphins to reduce pain while cats give birth. Instead of crying out in pain and alerting potential predators of her location, the mother cat can keep herself and her litter safe by purring instead.

#3. Why they “Knead” you

Kittens instinctively knead their mother’s side to stimulate milk flow while they are nursing. As they grow up, cats can continue to knead well into adulthood to show contentment, create comfy bedding or mark territory. Even as adults, cats still associate the action or kneading with the security and reward of nursing from kittenhood. This means that if your cat chooses to knead you, they associate you with comfort and feel safe while by your side. That’s a neat way of showing their love, isn’t it?

#4. Changing Diets

After kittens transition away from nursing at about five weeks of age, they require a diet of solid foods that will support their continued growth. A kitten’s weight can more than double in its first few weeks of life and their diets need to accompany this rate of explosive growth. They can now eat wet or dry foods and should be completely weaned by eight weeks of age. Kittens should become accustomed to both wet and dry food so they’re used to the mouth-feel of both and don’t become picky eaters later in life. We recommend Precise Naturals Chicken Meal & Rice formula because it’s high in protein and fiber and your kitten needs both for their transition to adulthood.

#5. Litter Training is Easy

Cats instinctively bury their waste in grainy or sandy material, making them one of the easiest pets to potty train. Good news for kitten owners, your tiny felines will be using the litter box in no time! Kittens can watch their mothers use the litter box and then begin doing so themselves, but also possess the natural inclination to bury their waste. Because kittens are smaller than adult felines, their litter boxes need to be smaller too. Provide a litter box that is easy for your kitten to get in and out of on their own. A good rule to remember, a litter box should be roughly one-and-a-half times the length of your cat so keep that in mind while upgrading your kitten’s litter box.

Now that you’ve read our five tips on kitten care, you should feel confident about the love and care you will provide to your feline. Here’s to starting the foundation of their life out right. What kitten facts can you bring to the table? Leave them in the comment box below!

Time to Update your Pet’s Vaccinations!

August is International Immunization Awareness Month for people of all ages, but don’t forget, it’s important for your pets to get their shots too! This month while you’re going in for a yearly check-up, go ahead and take your pet to the veterinarian to ensure all their vaccinations are up-to-date.

Vaccinations are essentially the same as immunizations, but our pets rely on us to remember when to have them administered. Vaccines contain antigens that are introduced to the immune system to better prepare your pet for preventing and fighting off future illness.

There a few basic vaccinations that all pets must receive the first time they go to the vet. It’s important to have a set vaccination schedule to ensure they receive the appropriate vaccines, especially if your pet is a young puppy or kitten.

There are specific core vaccinations that all dogs and cats, regardless of age, need for protection against particularly common or especially dangerous diseases. Puppies can begin vaccinations after they are weaned as early as six to eight weeks of age and kittens can also begin receiving vaccinations at six weeks.

Both dogs and cats should receive the rabies vaccine as part of their core vaccinations. Depending on your state’s laws, dogs and cats are required to have an up-to-date rabies vaccination and documented proof of said vaccination. It’s a good idea to keep your pet’s medical records on file if you ever need to prove their vaccinations are to date.

Puppies need to have core vaccinations administered to prevent rabies, canine parvovirus, distemper and canine hepatitis. Puppies receive most of their needed vaccines every two to four weeks until they age to 14 weeks or older.

For kittens, their core vaccinations should include ones that protect against rabies, feline rhinotracheitis, feline panleukopenia or distemper (FVRCP) and feline calicivirus which causes feline respiratory infections. The preventatives for these diseases can be administered through a combination vaccine and should be updated every three years. All of these diseases are common in nature and are frequently found in the general cat population. Outside cats or cats at higher risk for these diseases will benefit from more frequent vaccinations. Kittens should be vaccinated every three to four weeks until they age to 16 weeks or older.

Because some pets are at a higher risk for exposure to various diseases, discuss with your veterinarian the appropriate interval for vaccinations and booster shots to be administered. Frequency of vaccinations can be dependent on your pet’s age, lifestyle, medical history or environment.

Celebrating International Assistance Dog Week

Some heroes don’t need capes– they have four paws, a tail and a vest to signal their commitment to helping others. They can navigate busy crosswalks for those with low vision, alert a diabetic when their blood sugar is low or assist in other everyday tasks like taking in the groceries or retrieving keys. These are just a few ways assistance dogs act as valuable additions to the lives of their human partners.

Here at Precise, we want to celebrate the important work of assistance dogs with International Assistance Dog Week, starting on Sunday. This year’s celebration will go from Aug. 6 – 12, and we want to take the opportunity to honor the dedication of these canines and educate others on the importance of assistance dogs and their training.

A large part of raising awareness for assistance dogs involves educating others on the responsibilities of these animals. An assistance dog can work under various categories and be a guide dog for a person with low vision, hearing alert dogs for those with partial or total hearing loss, or service dogs which assist people with mobility-related tasks.

Two other types of assistance dogs operate in the field of medical assistance and are labeled as seizure/seizure response dogs and medical alert/medical response dogs. Seizure alert/seizure response dogs alert or respond to conditions like seizures, heart attacks, diabetes, epilepsy, strokes, post-traumatic stress, anxiety attacks and panic attacks. A medical alert/medical response dog is responsible for alerting a person of any oncoming medical conditions previously listed.

Acting as well-behaved helpers and best friends, assistance dogs go through an extensive training process that ensures they’re able to work diligently and attentively for their human partners. Their basic areas of training include manners, task training, obedience, and proofing or public access skills. Assistance dogs wear an official vest, jacket, backpack or harness that allows them to enter any public space such as a store or restaurant alongside their owners to provide them assistance as needed.

Beat the Heat with Precise

It’s officially summer. As you and your pets spend more time outside, it’s important to enjoy the sunny weather with proper safety measures in place. Here at Precise, we want to share ways to help your pet beat the heat and stay cool and happy as the temperatures continue to rise.

#1. Is the Pavement Too Hot?

You wouldn’t walk barefoot across your driveway in the summer and expect not to get burned, so don’t forget the hot asphalt can be painful for your pet’s feet too! Check if the pavement is safe for your pet by firmly pressing the back of your hand to the asphalt for seven seconds. If you experience discomfort, you shouldn’t’t walk your pet on that surface without paw protection. The pads of your pet’s feet can only withstand temperatures of up to 125 degrees Fahrenheit before skin destruction occurs, so try walking your pet in the morning and evening to avoid the higher temperatures. Also, be sure to keep an eye on outdoor cats or dogs and provide them a shady place to rest during the hottest parts of the day.

#2. Dont Leave Pets in the Car

Never leave your pet unattended in the car, even if it’s a cloudy day and you don’t think it’s that hot. On a warm day, the inside temperature of a car can easily reach 120 degrees Fahrenheit in a matter of minutes. Even with the window cracked, the temperature inside a car is much higher than the outside temperature, and pets can quickly suffer brain damage or experience heat stroke. If you’re out on an errand, leave your pet at home if you can’t take them into the store with you to ensure their safety.

#3. Freeze Dog and Cat Toys

Putting your pet’s favorite toy in the freezer and bringing it outside for them is a neat way of making sure they enjoy the sunshine while also keeping cool. You can stick your pet’s toy right in the freezer or sit it in a bowl of water and create a frozen “ice sculpture” for your pet to work on melting to get to their toy. If freezing their toys doesn’t suit you, pets always enjoy having lots of ice in their outdoor water bowl. The ice can be fun for them to play with and it ensures their drinking water is a suitable temperature.

#4. Brush out Those Coats

It’s important to brush out your pet’s excess fur as they transition to their summer coat. Brushing prevents painful matting that can trap heat and moisture against the skin. By brushing your pet regularly, especially dogs with double-coats, you can help them remove their dense undercoat and create proper air circulation better-suited to the summer heat. Resist the urge to sheer off your pet’s fur if they have double coats like mastiffs and terrier types. Your pet will find itself lacking sun protection and insulation if you shave it. Insulation fur grows at a different rate than longer guard hair on the outside and it may take a long time for your pet to regain their natural appearance.

#5. Provide Water and Bedding Options

Let your pets choose how they want to lower their body temperature by offering ways for them to play in water or relax on bedding. Dogs may enjoy splashing in wading pools or jumping through sprinklers as they play in the yard, but cats will likely steer clear of those options. However, both animals can enjoy resting in the shade or laying on cooling gel pet beds or elevated cots to keep them off of the ground.

As you and your pet enjoy the summer sun, we hope you’ll keep in mind these options for ensuring your pet stays safe and comfortable this season. The more options your pet has to keep cool, the happier they’ll be in the summer heat!

Lost Pet Prevention Month

This July, Precise is calling awareness to Lost Pet Prevention Month. We wanted to share some tips for keeping your furry friends safe and close to home. In case your pet ever does decide to explore their surroundings without you, here are a few ways to ensure their safe return.

#1. Identification

A secure collar and proper ID tags signal that your pet has clearly wandered away from its home and is not a stray animal. Pets can slip out of their collars and lose all of their identification this way, so be sure your pet’s collar fits snug but isn’t restrictive. Bonus points if the collar is embroidered with its name or has distinctive markings on it. Also, ID tags are a reliable way to ensure that someone who finds your pet will know where to return it. A pet’s ID tag should include its name, the owner’s name, a home address and a telephone number. Other information that is good to include on a tag is your veterinarian’s name and number, the animal’s rabies vaccination information, if your pet is microchipped and any health issues your pet may have that require medication.

#2. File Ownership Records

Just like you’d keep your family’s medical records filed away and accessible in an emergency, it’s important to have your pet’s medical records and ownership papers on-hand in a crisis. You can easily prove a pet is yours with these important documents and verify that you are, indeed, its owner. If brought in to a vet or a shelter, pet medical records and adoption papers will prove an animal’s true home is with you and will expedite the process of its return.

#3. Microchips

Having your pet microchipped at a vet’s office will be an invaluable aid in its return. Both cats and dogs can be microchipped to ensure a pet’s proper identification and is a more permanent option than an ID tag. Inserted just below the skin of your pet’s shoulder blade, the microchip can be scanned when it is brought into a vet to confirm your pet’s identity. The microchip does not track your pet’s location, but once scanned by a vet can indicate an animal’s home. The identification number of the microchip is tied to its owner’s information, and the owner can then be reached by a veterinarian. Even if you’re the one who finds a lost pet, taking it into a vet’s office to see if it is microchipped is the next best step in locating its owners.

#4. Securing their Surroundings

If your pet is naturally adventurous, securing its surroundings will make it more difficult for them to escape from home. If your dog likes to dig, make sure your fenced-in yard has fence posts that go deep into the ground and consider chicken wire outside its base. For dogs that jump over fences, add an extension to your fence that slants at a 45-degree angle to maintain security. Avoid wire fences that dogs can easily dig beside and squeeze under when choosing fencing. Also, an invisible fence is always an option for reinforcing your pet’s boundaries. For cats, screened-in porches keep them safe while also allowing them to enjoy the breeze from outside. Firmly close and lock doors, especially sliding doors or ones that a dog could push on to gain access outside.

#5. Alert Neighbors & Other Resources

Phoning your neighbors and speaking with people you meet on the sidewalk will spread the word about your lost pet. Have a picture of your pet handy to show others and be able to explain its behavior and markings to anyone you meet while out searching for your pet. It’s likely that your pet is still in the surrounding neighborhood, and if your neighbors know to be on the look-out, they can help you locate your pet sooner than if you searched for it alone. If your search ends without finding your pet, notify veterinarians in the area, local animal shelters and dog pounds to make sure they are aware of any new animals in their facilities that fit the description of your lost pet.

Precise is sharing this information to help take the anxiety out of a stressful situation. If your pet is ever lost, having these procedures in place will ensure you’re prepared in the moment and that your pet has safety measures in place for its safe return.

5 DIY Summer Treats for Your Pets

Summer—the time of year to head outside, go on adventures and soak up the sun. Just as you love enjoying the weather during this time of year, your animals do too! After spending a long day outside with mom, there’s nothing more rewarding for your pets than a cool, refreshing treat. This week, the Precise team has put together five DIY summer treat recipes that are simple to make and will leave your animals begging for more:

#1. PB + Jam Freezies via Pawsh Magazine

If there’s one thing all dogs love, it’s peanut butter—combining a frozen treat with peanut butter? You’ve hit doggie gold. Here’s what you’ll need to create this unique treat: 12 medium/large strawberries, 3-4 spoonfuls of organic peanut butter, ¼ cup of cold water, and an ice cube tray. Step one: wash the strawberries and remove the tops. Step two: once the strawberries are prepped, blend them with the water until fully pureed. Step three: pour the mixture into the ice cube tray about ¾ and top with dollops of peanut butter to fill the remainder of the slot. Step four: pop into the freezer for a couple hours until frozen…and voila! Ready to enjoy.

#2. Frozen Yogurt Treats via The Bark

Yogurt is one of those “go-to” ingredients that can be spruced up to create some pretty tasty treats. That being said, this DIY treat calls for four simple pantry ingredients: 4 cups of plain yogurt, ½ cup of peanut butter, 2 tablespoons of honey, and 1 ripe, mashed banana. Melt the peanut butter in the microwave for around 30 seconds, then place all four ingredients into the blender until smooth. Once smooth, pour the mixture into a popsicle tray, freeze until firm and serve to your animals!

#3. Doggie Breath Freshener Treats via The Nerdy Farm Wife

It’s no secret that animals can have some pretty stinky breath, especially after running around in the heat all day. To help combat the bad breath, head to your garden and grab a large pinch of mint leaves and fresh parsley. Combine the parsley and mint leaves in a food processor along with a 6 oz. container of plain yogurt. Divide the mixture into an ice cube tray and freeze until solid. Not only will this treat leave your pups lickin’ their lips but you’ll also love the fresh smell left behind!

#4. Frozen Tuna Treats via Wonder Forest

Mention the word tuna and your cats will be running towards their bowls. For this recipe, you’ll need: a can of tuna, ½ cup of water, a mixing bowl, plastic bag, and an ice cube tray (noticing a trend?). To begin, mash the undrained tuna in a mixing bowl and add the water. Next, fill the plastic bag with the mixture and cut a small hole in one end. Finally, fill the ice trays and freeze. After a few hours, pull the treat out of the freezer and watch your cats chow down!

#5. Doggie S’mores via Sugar & Soul

Nothing says summer more than making s’mores around the campfire. This year, let your dog be participate in the fun, too! This simple DIY treat includes three ingredients: dog biscuits, carob chips, and fluff. First, place the carob into the microwave for 30 second intervals until completely smooth. Following the carob, warm up the fluff for ~20 seconds in the microwave. Dip your dog biscuits into the carob first and then the fluff. Once all of the treats are dipped, set them on wax paper until the carob is hardened and you’re done! Break out these treats during your next campfire and let your pups dig in! Reminder—chocolate is toxic for animals and should never be given as a treat.

With the summer heat here to stay, these DIY treats are sure to keep your animals cool and their tummies happy. For more simple and sweet DIY summer treats, visit here.

Six Summer Activities for You and Your Pet

The warm weather brings many opportunities to spend time with your pet outdoors. If you notice your four-legged friend gazing out of the window more often, they may be longing for more time in the sunshine. Your pet may want longer walks and more time to play outside — so the Precise team conjured up a list of perfect summertime activities for you and your furry friend!

#1. Lake or Beach Day

Taking your pet along for a day trip to the lake or beach is the perfect getaway for you both! Whether they enjoy swimming or digging in the sand, most dogs are thrilled for the chance to be around water. Wading along the shoreline is a great chance for them to stay cool while they play! For the more relaxed animal, walking along the dock or snoozing by the bay window are also fun ways for your pet to enjoy themselves.

#2. Yoga

Why not practice your cat pose or downward-dog alongside your animal? Most pets become curious when they notice their owner joining them on the floor to stretch. Your cat may decide to keep you company on the yoga mat or your dog may decide to lick your face while you plank. This is a fun way to bond with your pet while also keeping yourself healthy. What’s great about yoga is you can practice it inside or outside, and your animals will enjoy making it a bit more challenging for you by walking around your legs as they watch you hold the poses!

#3. Hiking

Exploring the wilderness— or even your local greenway trail— is an awesome way to spend time outside with your pet. What animal doesn’t crave adventure and lots of new smells? Dogs in particular love the chance to sniff their way along the forest trails as you hike alongside them. For the adventurous feline, they may choose to climb on top of your backpack as you make your trek.

#4. Bring Your Furry Friend to the Farmer’s Market

Summer is the perfect time to shop at your local farmer’s market. While you pick up that pint of fresh strawberries, why not bring your furry friend along for your stroll through the produce stalls? Most farmer’s markets are outside and animal-friendly — no need to drop your pet off at home before grabbing those groceries! Your sweet pet may have the opportunity to meet other animals out with their owners for the day and will surely enjoy the chance to see all the hustle and bustle of the market.

#5. Pet Picnic

After stocking up on tasty groceries from the farmer’s market, go ahead and have a picnic with your pet at the local park! If staying closer to home would be more comfortable for your pet, there’s no rule against having a picnic in your own backyard either. Spread out a picnic blanket and pack your basket with a nice lunch for yourself as well as water and snacks, like our Healthy Habits® Treats, or other goodies for your four-legged friend.

#6. Reading in the Sunshine

Nothing says relaxation like curling up with a good book either under a tree, in a patio chair or on a couch by the window. Reading is also a good way to unwind after a picnic with your pet. Wherever you decide to pour through your summer reading, your pet will probably be close by to enjoy your company as well as the sunshine. Some leisurely time in the sun is the ultimate way for both you and your pet to relax after lunch. Your fur-baby may just decide to take a sun-nap and fall asleep while you’re reading — hello cute pic opportunity!

While enjoying the summer day with your pet, remember to always have food and water on hand in case they become fatigued or crave a snack. Precise Naturals pet food for your dog or cat is a great option to keep your animal happy, healthy and satisfied. We wish you and your pet a great summer filled with lots of adventure!

Five Ways to Celebrate Your Pet’s Birthday

We say it all the time—our pets are a part of our family. Their sweet meows, sloppy kisses, barks, and goofy antics make our personal social media channels adorable, and our phone storage very low. We constantly seek to capture the sweet things they do, commemorating each milestone our sweet fur babies make. Their birthdays should be no different! This week, the Precise team has conjured up five ways that you can make your pet’s birthday a pawesome one!

#1: Homemade Goodness

On our birthdays, we get cake. On your pet’s birthday, go the extra mile and make some homemade tasty treats! Check out a recent blog post we wrote on simple DIY pet recipes that both your feline and canine will love! Interested in switching things up? Pinterest has a ton of pet-friendly at-home recipes for your pet…like these pupcakes!

#2: Get Them a Birthday Gift

Your pet’s toy box is probably looking a bit outdated…or destroyed from playing too hard! Revamp their playful selection by either making DIY pet toys, or buying them new gear to toss! Your pet will be so excited to have a new fetch ball or scratching post to tackle!

#3: If it’s Hot, Grab the Ice

If your pet’s birthday is during the warm spring and summer months, a popsicle is just what they need. How do you make it? Simple. Grab some of your pet’s wet food and an ice cube tray. Fill the trays half way with your pet’s wet food. Fill the remainder with water. Freeze until solid. Then, go outside and let your pet cool down with a tasty, chilled popsicle!

#4: Lights, Camera, Cuteness

What’s the best way to commemorate an occasion? By capturing it! Grab your camera and get some photos of your precious pet on their special day. If you manage to get a shot of them each year, you’ll have a collection of images to last a lifetime. If your pet is comfortable, give them a birthday hat and party gear before taking the photo. See these photos for inspiration.

#5: Give Them an Extra Scoop of Wholesome Nutrition

You guessed it, we mean Precise. What better way to commemorate a year of happiness than an extra scoop of what keeps your pet healthy!

Get your pet’s special treat ready, fire up the candles (with your supervision), and sing your heart out to “happy birthday.” It’s your pet’s special day!

Mind you, many fur babies that have been adopted don’t have a birth “day” per say. After making a quick visit to the vet, the doctor should be able to tell you an around-about date that they were likely born (or, you could just celebrate for a week straight, just saying).  DOGust 1st also commemorates a universal birthday for all shelter dogs.

Does your pet have a birthday coming up? Tell us how you plan to celebrate in the comment box below!

Tackle Pesky Hairballs with Precise Naturals

Sure, cats aren’t typically huge fans of water, but that doesn’t mean that hygiene and grooming aren’t top priorities for your feline. In fact, your cat spends half of their waking hours grooming themselves and fellow kitties. Their barbed tongue, soft padded paws, and saliva are a cat’s perfect recipe for bath time—and hairballs.

This week’s blog post is dedicated to the pesky kitty dust bunny in honor of Hairball Awareness Day. Yes, there’s an entire day dedicated to your cat’s regurgitated hair. It’s important to note that if your feline is coughing up more than two hairballs per year it can become health concern. Lucky for you, we have a solution that may fix your hairy situation.

We’re talking about our Precise Naturals Foundation formula for cats.

When your cat grooms themselves, they consume the hair that comes off of their body. Sometimes if there is an excessive amount of hair, your cat’s tummy can’t digest all of the fuzz. When that happens, your cat hacks up a hairball. Precise Naturals Foundation Formula is high in fiber, helping to break down the hair and speed up digestion. This formula is also high in protein and is designed with ingredients to provide adequate vitamins and minerals for adult indoor cats. Precise Naturals Foundation Formula helps to sustain the building blocks for proper cat health, and those are just a few reasons why it’s our most popular cat food.

P.S. This formula is highly compatible with our kitten formula. So, when you’re little one is ready to make the switch, it will be a steady transition to adult food.

So, before you try at-home remedies to stop those pesky hairballs in their tracks, try a simple diet change for your feline. If you’ve noticed your pet’s hairball production has halted, share your story! We’d love to hear your testimony in the comment box below.
