---"I want to add my praise for WiggleLegs Frog toy.  My cat loves to play with WiggleLegs No other toy will do.  When I ask her to find WiggleLegs she goes right to it!  I just ordered 3 more as I'm afraid you will stop making them and then I don't know what we will do!"

---"Once again, you have provided excellent service with an excellent product. Thanks for the extra - it was a hit! My cats are totally addicted to the WiggleLegs Frog, so please keep plenty in stock!"


---"I just wanted to let you know that my cat, Molly, is absolutely addicted to your FlyToys. I literally have to hide them from her so she will go to sleep at night, but as soon as morning arrives she is sitting right in front of their hiding place waiting for them to come out and play."

Each MetPet FlyToy is handmade by skilled artisans with great attention to detail.  They come in the form of bugs, amphibians, mammals and more in three very reasonable price points.

---"I can't believe how your company understands cats so well"

 

Kennel Cough

MetPet.com Staff Writer

Canine Infectious Tracheobronchitis, more commonly known as Kennel Cough is caused by a variety of viruses and crops up where many dogs come into close contact.  Dog shows, boarding kennels, groomers, shelters and even a vet's office can be sources of infection.  It is caused when the upper airways become inflamed and is generally mild.  It can, however, progress to more serious bronchopneumonia or bronchitis in very young, very old and sickly dogs. 

Kennel cough is spread through the sneezing and coughing of infected dogs.  Unless thoroughly disinfected from surfaces, it persists and remains infectious on doors, fences, walls and bowls.  Dogs put into kennels can pick it up from a previous occupant. 

It is characterized by a hacking, gagging dry cough sometimes accompanied by watery eyes.  The persistent, loud cough is uncomfortable and loud enough to keep both you and your dog awake.   It is not a serious condition unless your dog's immune system is weak.  Rest, isolation from other dogs, good nutrition and time (2-3 weeks) are generally all that needs to be done. 

Most kennels are routinely requiring a Kennel Cough vaccination prior to boarding.
