Items such asstuf fed an imals andpillows which are notwashable can be stored intightly sealed plastic bagsfor two weeks. Lice andtheir eggs will be killed ifthey freeze - so someitems can be placed in afreezer overnight.

    Combs and Brushes--

    F a m i l y c o m b s a n dbrushes should be soakedfor 15 minutes in very hotwater. It might be a goodtime to get every memberof the home their owncomb and brush if theydon't already have them.Instruct children not toshare combs, brushes,hats or other articles ofclothing at school, play orother activities.

    O n e o f t h e w a y stoxicologists warn us

    about the relative acute(one-t ime exposure)danger of a chemical is totest for LD50 values -

    Acute toxicity, which isdefined as the immediateeffect of a substance as aresult of a single dose, isrelatively easy to study.Chronic toxicity, whichresults from low doses ofa chemical repeated overlong periods of time, ismuch more difficult tot e s t . T o x i c i t y i sobjectively evaluated onthe basis of test dosagesmade on experimentalanimals under controlledconditions. The mostcommon measure thattoxico log ists use toestimate the acute toxicityof chemicals on humans is

    the LD50 value. LD50 isan abbre viat ion forLethal Dose 50%. TheLD50 value for a chemicalis the amount of chemicalthat can be expected tocause death in half (50%)of a group of a particularanimal species when thechemical enters the bodyby ingestion or skinabsorption. The amountrequired to cause death isnormally related to bodyweight: therefore, theLD50 is expressed in

    $%K%)%#%%$#milligrams of chemicalsper kilogram of bodyweight (mg/kg).

    It should be noted that noLD50 data exists forhumans. Data from testanimals is used to try toestimate the possiblea cute to x i c i ty o f achemical on a human

    being. Toxicity datashould therefore be usedto evaluate the relative

    all chemicals even somek n o w n h a z a r d o u schemicals such as leadcompounds, do not have

    known LD50 values. Ingeneral, chemicals withLD50 values less than300mg/kg are consideredhighly toxic, those withLD50 values between 300and 1,000 mg/kg areconsidered moderatelytoxic, and those withLD50 values between1,000 and 5,000 mg/kg areconsidered slightly toxic.

    Because LD50 valuesdepend on body weight,however, many chemicalsthat may not harm anadult may be very toxic toa small child. Somepeople may become

    Colloidal Silver is an areaof controversy in themedical f ie ld . Manypeople believe that thereare countless colloidalsilver uses, especially formedical health purposes.It has been used as ageneral antibiotic byhumans for centuries.

    However, in the last fewdecades, scientists havediscovered that it has theability to completelyobliterate antibiotic-resistant bacteria likeM R S A , S A R S(Human Coronavirus) and BirdF l u ( A v i a nInfluenza).

    Early Signs

    In the early1900s, doctorsw e r e v e r yaware that theliquid colloidals i l v e r w a s

    highly effectiveagainst event h e m o s td e a d l ymicroorganisms. Theywere very surprised tonote that even though thesilver in the liquid formw a s a s t o n i s h i n g l ye f f e c t i v e a g a i n s tdangerous bacteria, it wassurprisingly gentle andnon-toxic to the subject itwas used on.

    Does Not CauseMicrobial Immunity

    It was tested onr a b b i t s , a n ddiscovered that thea n i m a l w a sp r o t e c t e d f r o mmultiple times thel e t h a l d o s e o f diphtheria toxin.T h e o t h e rinteresting fact thatp u z z l e d t h eresearchers, wasthat no matter howmany times thesilver was used, itd i d n o t c r e a t er e s i s t a n c e o rimmunity in them i cr o o r g a n i s m skilled by it, unliket h e p o p u l a r

    antibiotic prescriptiondr ug s . T h e us e s o f colloidal silver includeanti-bacterial purposesand also for increasing thee f f i c i e n c y o f o t h e rantibiotics.

    Enhancing AntibioticEffects

    It was discovered that theantib iot ic e f fects o f amoxicillin, clindamycin,erythromycin, penicillin,and vancomycin weredramatically enhanced

    w h e n u s i n g s i l v e ra l o n g s i d e t h e s eantibiotics.

    Also For Pets

    Other colloidal silver usesare for family pets andanimals. Dogs, cats and

    other animals can

    benefit from thea n t i b i o t i c

    effects of thec o l l o i d a lsi lver thes a m e a sh u m a n s .

    They can

    be given the liquid silverfor mi ld in fection s ,antibiotic wound care,and more. Usually just afew drops daily until theinfection clears up issufficient.

    Ultra colloidal silver usesare similar to the regular

    colloidal silver, except

    tha t th is is a mor econcentrated form, andtherefore, one does notneed to take as muchwhen determining thedosage. It is especiallydesigned to work inenhancing the immunesystem functions.

    Side Effects

    The colloidal silver sideeffects are almost non-e x i s t e n t . T h e o n l ycondition that is said tohave developed from

    i n g e s t i n g to o m uchcolloidal silver is calledArgyria a condition inwhich silver accumulatesin the body, particularlyo n th e s k i n . W h e nexposed to sunlight, theskin is said to turn abluish or grey color.Although this condition is

    described as a cosmeticproblem, there have beenunrelated reports of otherneurologic or renalcomplications due to useof silver. However, mostof these reports areunsubstantiated.

    Sovereign Silver(colloidal silver) ism a d e w i t h99.999% pure

    silver. It can beu s e d i n asimilar way tot h a t o f s t a n d a r dcolloidal silvera n d h a s

    e x c e l l e n tresults as well.

    Conclusion

    I n c o n c l u s i o n , t h ecolloidal silver uses arequite varied, and seems tobe clearly an extremelybenef icia l antib iot icproduct that has seen agreat deal of success, withlittle to no ill effects tohumans or animals.

    HOW TO FREE YOUR LEG FROM A BEAR TRAP

    1. Move your foot andwiggle your toes. Beartraps are designed tocatch and hold the legof a bear, not cut itoff. Your leg maybe badly bruised,but it should notbe severely injured

    o r a m p u t a t e d .Attempt to moveyour foot and toesto determine if yous t i l l h a v ecirculation and tocheck for tendona n d m u s c l ed a m a g e . I ngeneral, the steel"jaws" of the trapare not sharp. Eachside of the jawshould have "teeth"that are designed toallow circulation. Ifyou cannotfeel your

    foot or donot haver a n g e o f movement,y o u w i l lh a v e t ow o r kquickly.

    2. Sit withthe trap inf r o n t o f you. Sit onthe groundand movethe trappedleg so it is in front ofyou, bent slightly. The

    trap may be anchoredto the ground with ashort chain, or thechain may be attachedto a loose hook. (Whenthe caught animal runsaway, the hook leaves a

    trail that is easy totrack.)

    3. Familiarize yourself

    with the trap. The trapwill have one piece ofbent steel (a "spring")

    to the left and anotherpiece to the right of thejaws. The center of the

    trap will have a flatsteel plate called a"pan." Your leg will bebetween the jaws, yourfoot on the pan.

    4. Place one hand onthe top of each spring.

    5. Close the springs.With as much force aspossible, press downhard on the springs to

    c o m p r e s sthem. As thes p r i n g sc o m p r e s s ,t h e y w i l l

    l o w e r a n dr e l i e v epressure onthe jaws.

    6. Once thej a w s a r el o o s e , s l i pyour foot outof the trap.

    7. Release thesprings. Take

    pressure off thesprings slowly to avoidsnapping the jaws

    c l o s e dsuddenly.

    8. Checkyour legf o rd a m a g e .Look forb r o k e nskin andt i s s u ed a m a g e .S e e km e d i c a lattentionif you arei n j u r e d .

    Have you ever thoughtabout exactly what you'regoing to hunt and how,should it come down to allof us bugging out in thewoods? These are veryi m p o r t a n t t h i n g s t oconsider. A lot of people I

    have asked these questionsto automatically say, "Wewill shoot them!"

    Of course, any experiencedsurvivalist knows thiswould be the last thing youwould want to do for fearof attracting others to yourbug out location.

    Not only that, wouldn't youw a n t t o s a v e y o u rammunition for homeinvasion against all thosenon preppers who thinkthey are going to just waltzon up to your home spreadand take what you preppedfor?

    So now I ask, what otherskills do you have incapturing and preparingyour family a meal? Thereare multiple ways to obtainfood in the forest and I amgoing to talk about a few ofthem today. When myhusband and I discussedthis, my first thought wasusing a Compound orCross Bow. There is adifference for those of usthat are unfamiliar with

    Survival Hunting Without a Gunthis type of hunting. If youhave ever watched WalkingDead then you have seen aCross Bow.

    Pros and cons of a CrossBow hunting:

    Pro: Are easier to fire than

    regular bows. Easier to aimand shoot.

    Con: Slower tor e l o a d t h a nr e g u l a r b o ws .Sometimes louderthan regular bows(not a problemfor self-defense).Must cock andload ahead oftime. Only geto n e s h o t( r e l o a d i n g i sslow)

    H e r e i s aco m pa r i s o n o f Cross Bows and LongBows: "Regarding the rangeon Crossbows versusLongbows, the standardballistics analysis will tip infavor of the longbow. Allthings being equal (that is,a typical 75-80lb. longbowis being compared to atypical 150lb. crossbow,both shooting missilesfrom 450-650 total grainweight), the longbow winsfor distance...the crossbowwins for kinetic energy and

    yes, f latter trajectoryO V E R T H E S H O R TTERM. (Flatter trajectorymeans: FASTER FPS or thearch of the arrow afterleaving the bow).

    The real benefit to the

    crossbow is controllability

    and the rapid single-firepotential of carrying a

    m i s s i l e "co ck e d a n dlocked." Like all weaponsand survival gear, keepspare parts and LEARNhow to use and repair yourb o w ! I f y o u h a v eexperience in archery,please start a discussion onhunting with bows!

    Traps

    Trapping animals for foodis an invaluable skill tolearn. I remember, when I

    was younger, trying tomake a box trap to catchsomething with my bestfriend. It was so excitingmaking the trap andchecking it for somethingevery day. Of course, livingin Houston, Texas at the

    time, probably meant wewere never goingto catch a thing.And we didn't,but it was funtrying. There areabout 5 types oftraps I can thinko f t h a t a r emainly used intrap hunting. Ifyou can think ofany others feelfree to sharethem with us.

    Foothold Traps:

    The foothold is adevice that has 2 jaws, 2-3springs and a spring triggerin the center that is usuallyround and when steppedon the trap closes aroundthe animals foot. They aremade in all different sizesand types depending onthe animal you are tryingto capture. Be carefulthough, some states haveoutlawed the use of thesetraps so check your statefor the laws on these traps.As well, animals have been

    known to chew off theirfoot to escape.

    Cage Traps

    Cage traps, like footholdtraps, are intended to catchanimals live. These areoften baited with smaller

    *lure* animals, cat food, orf i s h . C a g e t r a ps a r econsi dered the mosthumane traps because theanimal is unharmed. (Untilyou kill it) Often thesecages are used by animalcontrol or homeownerswho just want to relocatean animal verses killing it.They will usually have atrigger at the back of thecage, which causes thedoor to shut on the animalonce inside. Some trapshave a different triggerlocated in the middle of thetrap causing a door to shutfrom the back and thefront, leaving two points ofentry for an animal. I foundsome reasonably pricedcage traps at DHgate.com.

    D i r t H o l eTrapping:

    This requires a little bit ofdigging. A trapping pit isexactly what it sounds like:A hole dug in the ground tolure an animal. I could seewhere this could be very

    useful if you found a in the woods wanimals cross frequHere is a video showiexample of dirt holesetting.

    by Paul Purcell

    Hurricane Katrina andother recent disastershave given us yet anotherdisaster preparednesswake-up call. Do we payattention now or hit thesnooze button again?

    Pushing past the debatesover government reaction,we come to the bottomline conclusion that, Yes,more could have beendone. In other articleswell get into some ofthose debates, but fornow, lets look at the mostimportant part of ac o m p r e h e n s i v eemergency readinessplan, and that is thepreparedness levelsof individuals andfamilies.

    We find that thebiggest obstacles to

    co m pr e h e n s i v efamily emergencyr e a d i n e s seducation are themisconceptionssurrounding thetrue nature ofpr e pa r e dn e s s .So, to set the stagefor better education,and ultimately betterpublic safety, lets take alook at some of thesemyths.

    1. If something happensall I have to do is call 911.

    Help can only go so far, orbe there so quickly.

    Security, like charity,begins at home and theresponsibility for yourfamilys safety rests onyour shoulders. This isntto say that you shouldntcall for help when itstruly needed, its toremind you that you maybe on your own for while,especially if the situationis an expansive or severeone.

    2. All I need is a 72-hourkit with a flashlight, firstaid kit, some food andwater, and a radio.

    Were not sure where the72 hour figure camefrom, but its an extremelyminimal amount of timeand not very realistic. Amore practical goal is tobe self-sufficient for aminimum of 2 weeks.Why 2 weeks? As bad asKatrina was, there arenumerous disaster andterrorism scenarios thatcould see substantiallymore damage, and ad i s r upt i o n o f l o ca lservices for three weeksor more. Also, many

    biological scenarios maysee a 2-week quarantine.Regarding supplies andequipment, avoid the o n e - s i z e - f i t s - a l lsimpleton l ists andcustomize your disasterkit to fit your familysunique threats, needs, andassets.

    3. My insurance policyw i l l t a k e c a r e o f everything.

    SWAT teams of insuranceagents arent going toinstantly rebuild your lifelike on TV. Insurancecompanies will be farmore concerned about

    their o w n

    b o t t o mline than yours.In fact, many insurancecompanies are rewritingpolicies to redefine somerather common terrorismo r d i s a s t e r r e l a t e di n c i d e n t s a s b e i n ge x c l u d e d a n d n o t

    coverable. Check yourpolicies closely!

    4 . G o o dpreparedness istoo expensivea n d t o ocomplicated.

    Nothing could befurther from thet r u t h . T h eproblem is, wehaven t madepreparedness apart of our overalleducation. We get morepreparedness info on anairline flight than we getas citizens. Most of us

    arent taught that thereare literally thousands ofs ub t l e , s i m pl e , a n deconomical things we cando to drastically improveour emergency readiness.The notion that it mightb e e x p e n s i v e o rcomplicated has comefrom companies thataggressively market high-priced unnecessary gear.

    5. We can only form aNeighborhood Watchgroup through FEMA, the

    Red Cross, or local LawEnforcement.

    N e i g h b o r h e l p i n gneighbor is one of ourhighest civic duties. Noone regulates this and youdont have to get anyonespermission to coordinateyour safety with others.

    Working with theseg r o u p s i s r a t h e radvantageous, but notrequired.

    6. In a Weapons of MassDestruction terroristattack, were all deadanyway.

    WMDs might kill largernumbers of people, butt h a t d o e s n t m e a n

    widespread destructionis a guaranteed thing.I n f a c t , f o rw i d e s p r e a d

    destruction, a top-grade WMD must be

    expertly and preciselyapplied under idealconditions. This doesnot mean that WMDs

    are to be ignored ort h a t t h e y r enothing to fear, its

    just that MassDestruction does

    N O T m e a n T o t a lDestruction at all.

    7. Nothing like thatcould ever happen here.

    Though some areas aremore prone to certaintypes of disasters, sayearthquakes in California,or terror attacks in New

    York, no area on earth is

    completely immune. Too,with as much as peopletravel, you might travelsomewhere and wind up

    in a disaster you neverthought about.

    8. All I have to worryabout is my own family.

    Technically yes, but themore youre able to carefor your own family, themore you can and shouldhelp others.

    9. If preparedness werereally important it wouldbe taught in school.

    The Disaster Dozen Top Twelve Myths of Disaster Preparedness

    Preparedness really is thatimportant, but schoolshave only so much timeand budget to teach thethings they already do.This is one of the manythings were trying tochange, but for now,youre going to have tonot only realize the

    importance of thoroughemergency readiness, butto teach your familyyourself.

    10. I can get freepreparedness informationon the Internet.

Worse, some ofthese free sites haveinformation that couldactual ly cause moreproblems than they cure.This is why we spentyears in gathering theover 400 additional booksand training manuals onthe CDs in Disaster Prep101.

    When a crisis is

    brewing, making a

    comprehensive list

    of supplies is no

    easy task neither

    is purchasing them.

    Because youve read

    through this

    checklist to make

    sure you have

    everything your

    family needs to

    survive a crisis.

    Here are our Top 20

    Items to Hoard:

    1. Rice Dried ricehas an incredibly

    long shelf life,

    making it ideal for

    storage. In

    nutritional terms,

    rice is rich in

    starch and

    carbohydrates. Its

    also a good source

    of Vitamin B, iron,

    and protein.

    2.Beans, Lentils,

    Black-eyed peas Legumes are a great

    source of protein,

    iron, and dietary

    fiber. Like rice,

    which theyre

    traditionally served

    with, dried beans

    have an

    exceptionally long

    shelf life.

    3. Candles Youllprobably never read

    a disaster

    preparedness list

    that doesnt include

    candles, and for

    good reason. A good

    stock of slow-burning emergency

    candles is a

    20 ITEMS TO HOARD CHECKLISTsurvival essential, as

    well as something to

    light them with.

    4. Cigarette Lighters

    I recommend stashinga combo pack of at

    least 6 lighters in

    your stockpile. In a

    power outage, these

    guys can become very,

    very important. Thecan also be very easy

    to misplace.

    5. Pasta Pastastores well, has a

    long shelf life, and

    its loaded with

    carbohydrates. Its

    also easy to prepare.

    Not to mention, pasta

    pairs well with lots

    of other items on this

    list.

    6. Peanut

    Butter Hoarded by

    everyone from

    college

    students todoomsday

    survivalists,

    and for many of

    the same

    reasons, peanut

    butter is a

    tasty, shelf

    stable source

    of protein that

    pairs with lots

    of other items.

    7. Can Opener/

    Multi-Tool Its a good

    idea to carry a

    survival knife,

    but its

    agreatidea to carrya quality multi-tool,

    like a Leatherman. A

    Leatherman comes in

    handy almost every day

    under normal

    circumstances and

    could be used as a

    weapon in a pinch.

    8. Dried fruits, such

    as raisins,

    apricots,and papayaDried fruits are a

    great source of

    nutrients,calories,potassium, and fiber.They can also be added

    to nuts to make

    delicious trail mixes.

    9. Energy bars Sincethese bars are

    typically loaded with

    carbs and protein by

    design, theyre

    actually a good choice

    for your survival

    storage (maximum

    nutrition with minimal

    effort and prep).

    10. Canned soups and

    chili Canned soupsare easy to prepare

    and offer a nice

    variety of ingredients

    for the effort. Look

    for low-sodium

    options. Premium

    brands may be

    healthier, but value

    brands will make your

    money go further.

    11. Gauze/Bandages For more serious

    injuries, youll want

    to keep a supply of

    dedicated gauze and

    bandages.

    12. Rubbing Alcohol Rubbing alcohol burns

    on an open wound, but

    it is a great way to

    sterilize instruments,

    surfaces, and the skin

    surrounding a wound.

    13. Batteries Obviously, youll need

    to coordinate your

    battery storage plan

    with any of the

    flashlights, radios,

    or other devices you

    may keep in your

    emergency stockpile.

    Batteries will last

    longest in cool dry

    conditions, but shouldbe rotated out of your

    emergency supply on a

    yearly basis.

    14. Toilet Paper Running out of toilet

    paper is annoying in

    any situation. But you

    certainly dont want

    to run out in a

    shelter-in-place

    crisis scenario. My

    advice is to get more

    than enough. Life

    can get messy.

    15. Trash Bags Trash will still

    need to be

    properly disposedof, even in a

    crisis. In fact,

    trash bags are

    even more

    important in a

    crisis. If running

    water is

    unavailable, trash

    bags may have to

    double as a

    toilet. Dont

    skimp here.

    16. Firearms

    Last but certainly

    not least, youre

    going to need some

    type of weapon, just

    in case. It doesnt

    have to be a gun, but

    then again what else

    are you willing to

    risk your fam

    safety on, a s

    Pepper spray?

    17. Drinking Wat

    Most experts reco

    a 2-week supply

    water in

    emergency storage

    72-hour supply is

    bare minimum. A

    filter can help

    extend you supplallowing you to

    cooking water.

    18. Hand-Crank Ra

    Hand crank r

    offer the abilit

    listen to impo

    communications

    power and

    networks are

    Some hand crank r

    even offer a

    charging

    functionality.

    available for

    purpose every

    from handy backpastoves to heavy

    outdoor ranges

    its hard to beat

    old self-cont

    Coleman camp stove

    20. Flashlights

    it comes

    flashlights, I

    two recommendat

    and neither one

    expensive. First,

    a comfortable

    headlamp. Se

    rather than fi

    Rabies! Its a potentword that demands anexclamation mark.

    A bat in the daytimemight be a juvenilelearning to fly butdriving erratically andwithout parentalconsent to beo u t a n da b o u t ,accordingto CharlesRupprecht,VMD, PhD,

    No signs can tell you ifan animal is rabid, hesays. Thats why thereare diagnostic tests.

    Wild animals actingo d d l y p e r h a p sapproaching peoplemay indicate they haverabies. But non-rabidwild animals also may

    do that because they are

    used to humans, saysRupprecht.

    Another myth is thatcertain animals carryt h e d i s e a s e . A n ymammal infected withthe virus is its victim aswell. Some species arebetter hosts. Those thatlick, suck and bite in

    their social interactionsallow the virus tospread through saliva orbrain/nervous systemtissue. Hosts that live inlarge and dense socialgroups help maintain

    the virus success.

    With an incubationperiod that can be lessthan a week, a fewmonths or more than a

    year, rabies can passfrom one unsuspectingvictim to the next.

    Although Louis Pasteurdeveloped a rabiesvaccine in 1885, rabiesstill kills more than55,000 people aroundthe world each year,according to the World

    Health Organization.

    The Truth About RabiesIn the United States, withi t s i d e a l a c c e s s t oaffordable vaccine andvaccination laws, rabieshas dropped dramaticallyover the last 100 years.There used to be 100human deaths annuallyaround 1900. Today, thereare about two per year.However, every year,

    How to Quickly Turn a Can of Pet Food into Nutritious Trea

    If you buy commercial(hopefully human grade)canned food for your dogor cat, you can 'repurpose'a can for use as a supply ofhealthy treats.

    Open a can of your pet'sfavorite brand, preferablysomething with a strongaroma, and spoon out little

    treat sized amounts onto abaking sheet covered withparchment paper.

    Put the baking sheet intothe freezer until the bitesized bits of food arefrozen. Then move them toan airtight container andback into the freezer theygo until you're ready totreat your pet to a treat!(Most dogs will enjoy thetreats frozen, but you'llneed to thaw them to a

    By Dr. Becker

    The chicken jerky dogtreat problem is severalyears old, has expandedto other types of pettreats, and is no closer tobeing solved than it wasback in 2007. So it's notsurprising pet owners arelooking for the safest

    options they can findwhen it comes to offeringtreats to their dog or cat.

    And there's certainly noshortage of commercialpet treats on the markettoday. They come inevery conceivable shape,size, smell, flavor, colora n d t e x t u r e . T h echallenge is finding safe,high-quality, species-appropriate treats in asea of productsclaiming to be "all-natural" and "madein the U.S.A."

    T h e f o l l o w i n grecommendations

    will help point youin the direction ofs e l e c t i n g s a f e ,wholesome treatsfor your furryfamily member.

    T i p # 1 : D o n ' tOverfeed Treats to YourPet

    Dog or cat treats evenvery healthy ones should not constitutemore than 15 percent ofyour pet's daily foodintake, and preferablyless than 10 percent. Andit's best to limit them totraining and behaviorrewards, as a bedtimeritual, or as a "time to getin your crate" enticement- things of that nature.Treats should be offeredprimarily as rewardsduring house training,obedience training orother similar activities,and not because the restof the family is sittingdown with a bowl ofpopcorn to watch amovie.

    Tip #2: Treats Should BeSourced in the U.S. andMade in the U.S.

    L e g a l l y , p e t f o o dmanufacturers can make

    the "made in the U.S.A."claim as long as theproduct was assembledin this country even ifthe ingredients arei m po r te d . So wh e nyou're shopping for safetreats, it's not enoughthat a product claims tobe made in the U.S. Youwant to be sure all theingredients originatedhere as well.Tip #3:Treats Should Be High-Quality

    A high-quality pet treatwill not contain grains orunnecessary f i l lers ,rendered animal byproducts, added sugar(sometimes hidden iningredients like molassesand honey), chemicals,artificial preservatives, oringredients known to behighly allergenic to pets.

    These criteria rule outthe vast majority ofcommercial pet treats onthe market.

    As is the case withcommercially availablepet foods, high-qualitypet treats aren't likely tobe found in big-boxstores, large pet storec h a i n s , y o u r l o c a lsupermarket, or your

    vet's office. Your best betshopping locally is tovisit small, independentp e t s t o r e s w i t hknowledgeable staff whocan answer customerq u e s t i o n s a n d a r ec o m p e t e n t t orecommend productsthat make sense forindividual pets.

    Most excellent quality,human-grade pet foodproducers typicallysmaller companies alsomake a few types oftreats. So if you'realready feeding your dogor cat a high-qualitycommercial pet food yout r u s t , s e e i f t h emanufacturer also makestreats.

    Another option is to shoponline, especial ly if y o u ' v e d o n e y o u rresearch and knowexactly what you'relooking for.

    Tip #4: Offer Fresh

    Human Foods as Treats

    I recommend avoiding allgrain-based treats. Yourdog or cat has nobiological requirementsfor the carbs in thesetreats, and in addition,t h e y a r e p r o -inflammatory.

    Consider instead living"human" foods. Berriesare a great treat becausethey're small and loadedwith antioxidants. Youcan also offer small
