Our pets are the only thing we love more than household hacks. We combine both and share our top tips and tricks for pets. These include how to remove fleas naturally, prevent cats scratching furniture, save money on pet food, groom pets more effectively, stop pets chewing and make their breath smell better.
Prevent Pet Sunburn
Did you know that sunburn can also occur in light-colored animals? You can protect your pet from sunburn by applying a little SPF 15 sunscreen to his nose and ears.
Fido Being Finicky?
If your dog refuses to eat a brand new food, place a piece beef jerky inside the bag. The food will smell much better the next day.
Where can I buy pet food?
Compare pet food prices at different stores when shopping for pet food. Recent research has shown that pet food tends be more expensive in stores where there are many people already purchasing pet products.
Get Groomed for Less
Friday, Saturday and Sunday are the busiest days for pet groomers. Ask your groomer about discounts for Tuesdays through Thursdays or if you can get a discount for arriving midweek.
Stop cats from rattling furniture
You know how difficult it can be to enforce a rule if your cat isn’t allowed to use a particular piece of furniture or place. Your yelling may not be enough to deter your cat’s behavior. Instead, you can use this spray bottle to mix 1 cup water with 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper. To ensure that it doesn’t stain, place the mixture in a spray can. The smell is not pleasant for cats and they won’t let it touch their paws. Keep going until your cat finds a permanent scratching place (such as the expensive scratching post).
Pacify a Chewing Puppy
If your puppy Bruce is a chewer, take him to the local vitamin or health food shop and ask for clove oil. The oil of cloves is great for us, but horrible for dogs. It can be used on any wooden legs to keep your dog away.

A better-behaved dog
Dog trainers often say that startingle your dog is the best way to discourage bad behavior, such as incessant barking. This can be done by filling an old toilet paper tube full of beans or rice, and then tape aluminum foil to each end. The noise from shaking the tube will surprise him and make him forget his bad habits.
