While the modern domesticated is pretty different from its ancestors, in my personal experience, it seems that house never really lost the predatory mindset of their like lions, leopards, and tigers. It's easy to know what a dog is thinking, but cats seem to be just as unpredictable as any other wild animal. Honestly, sometimes I think dogs are like a little kid who's so happy to be in your company, while cats just tolerate your presence since we give them food and shelter. Another critical step in avoiding pet poisonings is to read labels. Flea control is commonly labeled specifically for dogs or cats. This is because the agents used for dogs are not safe for cats. Follow the label directions and amounts correctly.Because dogs need more care than cats and are often more integrated into our domestic and social lives, dog owners' connections with their pets can be more easily observed by others.It's interesting how catnip's euphoric properties affect cats in some rather intense ways. My Persian mix (Mitz) would bat his catnip toy a few times after which he'd continue with a roll around on the floor and finish with an incredible dash through all the rooms of the house, until exhausted. Catnip playtime was always a fun time for both of us, but does catnip provide the same intense euphoria for dogs? If not, then how does catnip affect dogs, if at all?Following these steps may help save your animal’s life after an accidental or intentional poisoning. If you have cats, keep them indoors. If you have dogs, be aware of their surroundings and behavior and don’t let them roam free.What many people do not realize is that catnip can also have have some effects on dogs and some dogs (not all) love the herb! Dogs are attracted to all flowering plants and catnip is no exception. Anything with an unusual scent, even a rotting fish will attract a dog. If it smells bad and can hide their own scent, believe me, dogs will roll in it! Some dogs may find the taste of the plant appealing, but although they may find some interest in the herb at first (because lets face it, dogs are nosy critters) that soon will subside as their curiosity diminishes.
