Question by Emily Potter: Is it bad for a cat to eat dog food and vice versa?
Okay, I know this sounds kinda funny.But I have one dog and one kitten at home. My dog started eating the cat’s food, and my cat started eating the dog’s food. They still eat their own food, but also each others. Is this a bad thing?

Q&A: How do you get your dog to pay lots of attention to you.?

Question by AndyT: How do you get your dog to pay lots of attention to you.?
Ex: When you walk through the door when you get home, your dog comes up to you and gives you lots of love. How do you get your dog to do that?
My dog is a Lab/Shephard mix.

Answer by Jenn
You have to show affection to get it. It may depend on the breeding of your dog whether it is more independent or social. Any dog I have ever owned comes running when I come home and there has never been any type of training for this. They love my company and miss me when I am gone. I give them all affection when I get home and tell them I missed them.

Do a search for “build a dog house” in any search engine. I don’t think it matters what boards you use. You should find something in the search results.

Is it better to feed your dog home made food?

Question by clmh: Is it better to feed your dog home made food?
I feed my dog homecooked food with Solid Gold vitamin supplements. I cook chicken, brown rice, sweet potatoes, carrots and broccolli together. (Veggies change from week to week and I somtimes add liver). This diet consist of 1/3rd meat, 1/3rd rice, 1/3rd veggies. I make crunchy home made dog biscuits with wheat germ and brewers yeast for treats. My dog appears very healthy and full of energy but I am wondering if this diet is really better for my dog than commercial dog food? I was feeding my dog California Natural lamb & rice dry dog food (a high quility dog food) until the last couple of months. Now she is completely on homemade food. I am wondering if she is missing any thing in her diet. Any suggestions?

I have an large lot close to long grass areas wtith heavy woods surroundng my home. The dog is constantly bringing in woodtick to our home. I wan to control the woodtick population on my lot and out edge of my lot. Lookin for ideas.

Best answer:

Answer by technicanalyst
I read that diatomaceous earth kills ticks and is harmless to pets and humans. It’s a crystalline powder, and the particles lacerate the tick’s carapace, causing it to dehydrate.

Other solutions. Ticks like shade, don’t like direct sunlight. Keep grass mowed. Scatter wild bird seed to attract birds to your lawn, and they’ll eat ticks too. That brings squirrels, though. Chickens eat ticks, but roosters can be a pain in the

Answer by rescue member
If you want your dog to be a companion and bond with you, you need to have him live in the house with you.
If you didn’t want that and are putting him out, why did you get a dog in the first place??

How healthy or un-healthy are milk-bones for dogs?

Question by Man in the Moon: How healthy or un-healthy are milk-bones for dogs?
Our vet was against them because he says they are high in fat and are bad for dog’s teeth. He recommended Greenies but they are very expensive. Do you know of any other options?

Best answer:

Answer by bzzflygirl
Milk bones are fine for treats but they certainly don’t clean the teeth. I don’t like greenies at all because they are a major choking hazard in their design and composition. Just brush your dog’s teeth. You can’t rely on any food or treat product to do it for you. Its not going to happen. Though raw soup bones will do a relatively good job provided you pick out a section without small pieces that can fall off. You’ve got to ease some dogs onto raw bones or they’ll get the runs.

Q&A: Is there a reason why bread costs so much in Neopets?

pet lodge

Lodging for your pets
Question by Narcissa: Is there a reason why bread costs so much in Neopets?
I just checked the shop wizard, and bread on Neopets sells for about 37,000 np. And I’m just curious why it’s so much… I mean, you feed your pet once, and you’re done right?

Best answer:

Answer by Kris
There are lots of things that drive prices up, even for items as simple as bread :)

Even though something looks like a basic item, it MIGHT be rare… it might not be sold very often in Neo shops, or it may have been a prize for something a long time ago, given to limited people. It might have been cheap in the past, but their numbers may have dwindled as they got eaten, as accounts that had them got frozen, etc. That’s usually the case with books, since those disappear when you read them.

If an item is commonly asked for in faerie quests, or used to receive an avatar, or something that a lot of people collect, that will drive the price up too, because people are willing to spend 30k or more for it. Bread actually can be used to get the “Toasty” avatar, so that might be part of the reason for its cost. There are much cheaper ways to get that avatar, though, so who knows.

Basically, things cost whatever Neopians are willing to spend. It’s all just supply and demand. What costs 30,000 today might cost 5,000 tomorrow if more are suddenly available. One piece of the Laboratory map costs 7,000np because it is so easy to come by, and one costs almost a million because it’s almost impossible to come by. The economy on Neopets is actually quite interesting. The sellers and buyers do all the work, balancing everything out, creating the prices for items themselves.

If you’re only interested in bread as something to feed your pets, definitely skip it and just buy omelets. They are far cheaper and you can use them three times before they’re gone :) Or, if you have enough NP, I recommend just checking them into the Lodge. They’ll be kept happy and fed for up to 28 days :) http://www.neopets.com/neolodge.phtml
