Pet Fashion Zodes: Pisces

Pets Born on Feb. 19 to March 20
Element: Water

Born First: The Dreamers. These pets will be lazing, busy dreaming. They will be dreaming of things like food, clouds and world domination. Watch out for Eldest Pisces cats. They will demand absolute loyalty. These pets will be attracted to purple and deep red.

Born Last: The Mood Swing Pet. A dreamy pet can exhibit some signs of mood swings but worry not. This will be common especially since these pets are only expressing their individuality. Trust me, there will never be a dull moment.

Those In Between: Up in the Clouds. These pets are also dreamers. Most of the time they will be up all night and sleeping all day, even in dogs. They will be chasing their own tail of jumping on couches.

Only Pet: Razzle-Dazzle Pet. These pets will be dazzling and rightly so. Not only will they be attracted to shiny objects but they will be polishing floors shiny from their non-stop frolicking. They too will love to day dream but they will also try to enact these crazy ideas. Don’t be surprised to find a mess in the living room!

When Dressing Them
They will be attracted to soft and light fabrics like chiffon. They will also like fabrics like silk and satins. They love things that are shiny like the scales of Pisces! You’ll have no trouble dressing these dogs.

Are You Self- Medicating Your Pet?

Are you guilty of playing your own vet? Sometimes, it seems the cost of going to the vet is too high. A lot of vets charge high even just for a check-up.
And sometimes, a simple check-up will result in test upon tests: blood chem, x-ray, ultrasound, etc.
These rack up a good thousand or so.

It is highly tempting to just go and buy meds for your pet and administer what you think is right. But that is no right. Sometimes, we misdiagnose and give something more harmful than helpful.

For ailing pets, we think to just give them painkillers or colds medicines. Did you think you might just get the dosage wrong?

Be warned, vets know what they are talking about. They have to weigh your pets and give you the right prescription. Don't just give human medicines to your pets. You might think it's just colds medicine but there are colds medicine which are bad for your pet. Please go and consult your vet. Yes, it is costly but this is our baby we are talking about. Never self-medicate without the approval of your pet. It is better to be safe than sorry.
Think of this like this:
I thought something was wrong with my pooch. I sent him to the vet. His temperature was normal and no signs of anomaly in muscle, eyes, rectum. I spend Ph650.00 for a full blood workout. The result: normal. A bit hyper acidic due to food intake but otherwise healthy. I paid Ph650 for peace of mind. The doctor's note: just give him yakult or yogurt and avoid fats and treats for a while.

To sum everything up, do not self-medicate. If you need to find a cheaper vet, please do but never do it yourself. Even a simple deworming should be facilitated by the vet.
Tip: To keep healthy and avoid the cost of check-ups, go to free check-ups in events. Just have the vet in attendance see your pet and look them over. If there is findings, go to your local vet and keep them informed at all times.
