Making Sure Your Pets Are Healthy This Summer

Picture Desk Project - The World Needs Hugs by Andrew Davies - published by Robson books /  page 55 (2of2) ...  Hug the one you're with ...

Dog? Cat? Ferret? Koala? Our pets are important to us, which is why we need to always make sure they’re healthy. Part of that means making sure they aren’t outside in the heat for too long and making sure they get enough water. Did you know that animals can survive if they lose all of their body fat, but can become seriously ill if they lose just 10% of the water in their body? It’s a scary thought to think about Fido getting heatstroke, so make sure that you take the necessary steps to keep your pet healthy. Here are some tips for keeping your pet out of the heat and making sure they’re hydrated:

1) Don’t leave your pet in the car for more than 10-15 minutes in temperatures over 65 degrees Farenheight, especially if he/she is known to have have respiratory issues

2) Make sure your pet has water. Living things need water to survive, this is a fact. Your pet is no exception. If you’re traveling, make sure you have a bowl or bottle so that you can give your pet the water it needs to stay hydrated

3) Don’t trim too much hair off of your pet. The layers of your pet’s coat help to keep them from getting a sunburn and overheating. It’s okay to trim long hair, but remember that hair works differently for pets than it does for humans

4) Sometimes it’s better to leave your pet at home. We know you think your puppy or bunny is soooooo cute, but heat affects animals differently than it does humans. So think about letting your pet get some rest in the shade rather than taking him/her on that 6 mile hike you’re going on this weekend

5) KNOW THE SIGNS. When your dog is panting or your cat is trying to find a shady spot under a tree, make sure he/she is okay. For more information on signs and symptoms that your pet may be ill, visit petmd.com

The Difference Between a Standard and Quality Water System

Have you ever thought about the difference between a Brita/refrigerator filtration system and an under-the sink alkaline/whole house water filtration system? Believe it or not, there is a huge difference. Most Brita systems/refrigerator water systems have carbon filters that take out chlorine and some fluoride, but do not remove bacteria from local city water. However, most under-the-sink alkaline systems and whole house water filtration systems do remove bacteria as well as arsenals, heavy leads, and chlorine. These systems are good for skin and hair because the water is cleaned to a degree where no harmful contaminants are absorbed into your skin. After 15 minutes in a shower with regular tap water, your body absorbs 63% of everything in the water. If there are microorganisms, heavy metals, and contaminants, your body is taking in all of those harmful agents.

Water filtration systems aren’t just a product with a one-time use, they’re products that can be used every day and increase your lifestyle and health overall. Because filtration companies are selling a product that enhances people’s lives, they feel good about their products, and you should too.

“Remember, [they] are not selling a water system; [they’re] selling health and wellness, providing a safety net, making the world a cleaner place, preventing waste, preparing children for a brighter future, and saving consumers from wasting money. With a water system, people will feel better, they will look better, and they will live in a better environment.”

How do water filtration system companies create value that encourages people to buy their systems? There are two ways; using advertisement methods or working by referral. Many high-quality water filtration companies like Filtercon Technologies don’t have time to waste on advertisement, so we work through referral and targeting specific groups of people. New homeowners are the top response group for filtration companies like ours because, well, they’re in a new place and need a system to filter the water in their new home. By targeting homeowners that are knowledgeable about water health and are passionate about living healthy lives, quality water filtration companies can create connections with clients and give them the most for their money. Filtercon Technologies uses this method so that our quality water filters can reach these specific groups of people.
