Tambi Renee: Reasons to Spay or Neuter Your Pet

24 May

Tambi Renee is an advocate for the pet spaying/neutering process, and provides pet owners with several beneficial reasons to spay or neuter their furry friends.

Spaying, says Tambi Renee, can help female pets live longer and healthier lives. Spaying, she says, helps to prevent the onset of breast cancer and uterine infections, which are often highly fatal afflictions in female pets. Having your female pet spayed before their first heat, says Tambi Renee, helps to offer them the best chance to avoid major health risks down the road.

Neutering, says Tambi Renee, helps your male pet to avoid the possibility of testicular cancer, as well as the possibility of unwanted litters in the future. If done before six months of age, she says, you can help your furry friend avoid what is often a fatal disease.

Saying your female pet, says Tambi Renee, also keeps your female pet from going into heat, which prevents the risk of unwanted litters and reduces the likelihood to yelping, yowling and unwanted urination during the breeding season.

Neutering, says Tambi Renee, also helps to reduce the likelihood of roaming. An unneutered male dog or cat is more likely to roam the neighborhood in search of a mate, which increases the possibility of fights with other animals, fatal incidents with traffic, unwanted litters, etc.

A neutered male, says Tambi Renee, will also be better behaved, friendlier and more attentive to their adoptive families. Without the constant need to seek out a mate, a male will be far more likely to be a subdued and loyal household pet, improving the quality of your family’s relationship with your animal.


Tambi Renee: Reduce the Number of Unwanted Pets

19 May

Pet spaying/neutering advocate Tambi Renee encourages those in the veterinary profession to reduce the number of unwanted pets whenever possible. As an animal lover and passionate advocate for animal rights, Tambi Renee understands how important it is for professionals within the veterinary field to be active sponsors of the spaying/neutering process, and to guide pet owners through the benefits of neutering.

Tambi Renee believes that pet owners and their veterinary professionals should work together to determine a pet’s appropriate sterilization age, and to make sure the animal undergoes the neutering procedure at an age that won’t have an adverse effect on the pet’s health. Pet overpopulation is still a big problem in the United States, says Tambi Renee, and requires a proactive, not reactive, approach from both pet owners and veterinarians.

The burden of pet overpopulation is something faced by animal shelters on a daily basis. Over 3.7 million pets, according to the American Humane Association, are euthanized by shelters each year, simply because there aren’t enough available adopters out there. By spaying/neutering your pets, says Tambi Renee, you have the opportunity to lessen the burden on animal shelters, as well as to reduce euthanization rates at your local animal shelter. Tambi Renee understands that while the spaying/neutering process is often expensive, it should always be a primary consideration to people looking into the potential of pet ownership.

Tambi Renee believes that every pet owner has the opportunity to improve the quality, and the longetivity, of their pet’s lives through the spaying/neutering process. Neutering can help to improve a pet’s behavior, prevent the future possibility of disease and create years of happiness and enjoyment for both the pet and its owner.

Tambi Renee: Spaying/Neutering Your Pet Improves Pet Health

Pet life-span longevity, says pet advocate Tambi Renee, is dramatically increased by a simple spaying or neutering procedure. By altering your pet’s reproductivity, she says, you have the opportunity to increase both the quality, and the length, of your pet’s life, improving the pet’s health and increasing the amount of time you have to enjoy a strong relationship with your household dog or cat.

Tambi Renee is a firm believer in the benefits of spaying and neutering, which can reduce a pet’s urge to flee or to fight with other animals in the neighborhood. Tambi Renee also understands that pet spaying and/or neutering helps to reduce the likelihood that your dog or cat becomes afflicted with certain types of life-threatening cancers. As a lifelong advocate for animal rights, and for the promotion of behaviors that improve pet lives, Tambi Renee is firmly on the side of those who understand the many benefits of pet spaying and neutering. She works to provide people the information and the tools necessary to make better, more-informed decisions on pet care and maintenance.

Tambi Renee also knows how spaying and neutering can lead to drastic improvements in a pet’s behavior, reducing their urge to run and to fight with other animals. Pet neutering helps to reduce the likelihood of bad behavior, eliminates what are often annoying and somewhat dangerous mating rituals, and works to give pet owners more control over the pet’s behavior. Tambi Renee understands that neutering can reduce a pet’s tendency to be aggressive with both other pets and with other people, and can reduce a pet’s urge to roam, express dominance and create havoc with other animals throughout the neighborhood.

Tambi Renee: The benefits of spaying/neutering household animals

Millions of animals are left to wander the streets every year; a sad result of pet overpopulation. Many of these animals, says animal rights’ advocate Tambi Renee, struggle to find food and adequate shelter, causing suffering, pain, disease, and a terrible quality of life.

Tambi Renee believes that spaying and neutering can help to curb the effects of pet homelessness, reduce animal suffering and improve the quality of your pet’s life. Spaying and neutering, according to the Humane Society of the United States, helps to reduce pet homelessness, improve pet health, reduce bad pet behavior and decrease the costs to potentially devastating disease and suffering far into the future.

Tambi Renee has long been a believer that every pet deserves the opportunity to live a long, happy and healthy life. She firmly believes that spaying and neutering is a great first step towards a lengthy, healthy and productive relationship with your pet. Tambi Renee and the Humane Society of the United States believe that more should be done to increase awareness of the importance of spaying and neutering. Some states, according to the Humane Society, are forced to euthanize over 300,000 dogs and cats each year, in large part due to pet overpopulation caused by the lack of proper household pet spaying and neutering.

Tambi Renee and the Human Society also understand that spaying and neutering can help to drastically increase the length and quality of a pet’s life. States with the highest rate of spaying and neutering, according to a recent article in the USA Today, also experience the longest pet life spans on the country.

Tambi Renee: The Painful Process of Claw Removal

4 Apr

Cats rely on scratching as a defense mechanism; a natural way to defend themselves from potential predators and attacks from other cats. Many people perceive scratching to be a threat to themselves, says Tambi Renee, and will ultimately resort to declawing as a way to avoid future scratching injury. Declawing, says Tambi Renee, is an unnecessary and painful surgical procedure that adversely affects millions of cats’ lives every year.

The claw removal process is highly invasive and painful. The standard declawing method, says Tambi Renee, generally involves the amputation of bone in each of the cat’s toes using either a guillotine clipper or scalpel. This often results, says Tambi Renee, is painful wounds that affect the way a cat walks and jumps, and has the possibility to completely alter the way a cat reacts to threatening situations. The declawing procedure has many health and behavioral risks that can affect a cat throughout the duration of its life.

Tambi Renee understands that many cat owners are concerned about the potential for scratching, not only on themselves but also on their possessions and their furniture. Though she realizes that no one wants to be the victim of a scratch wound, she also understands that declawing surgery places undue stress and hurt on the cat, and that it should be avoided at nearly every cost.

Tambi Renee knows that people love their animals, and that the bond between owner and cat can be strong and mutually beneficial. She also knows that the quality of this bond can be adversely affected by painful declawing procedure. Tambi Renee supports the complete elimination of declawing because she understands its complete lack of necessity.

Tambi Renee: The Effects of Declawing

1 Apr

Pet ownership should never be taken lightly, particularly when it comes to protecting the health of one’s furry companions. Tambi Renee recommends taking every step to ensure that you are doing everything you can to keep your pet safe, healthy and happy.

Information is power, particularly when it comes to unnecessary surgical procedures that have the potential to pose undue harm and pain onto a defenseless animal. Cat declawing, says Tambi Renee, is for the most part an unnecessary and painful procedure. She hopes to provide useful information as to the harmful effects of declawing; information, she hopes, will inspire people to avoid a practice that adversely affects the life of a cat.

Cat declawing, according to both Tambi Renee and the Humane Society of the United States, can have serious drawbacks for a cat’s health and welfare. The surgical removal of a cat’s claws, she says, can lead to a lifetime of pain, infection and even tissue death. Declawing is an invasive surgical procedure that amounts to amputation, which, according to Tambi Renee, drastically changes a cat’s mobility and can potentially lead to nerve damage, painful regrowth and even bone spurs. By removing a cat’s claws, she says, you not only change the behavior of your furry friend, you also affect the way it moves, reacts and ultimately coexists with the owner.

Tambi Renee also recognizes that many feline victims of declawing may resort to biting as a defense mechanism. With no claws available to defend themselves, cats will often use biting to avoid a perceived attack. Cat bites, says Tambi Renee, are extremely unhealthy and can lead to costly and painful medical procedures down the road.

Tambi Renee Recommends Careful Pet Monitoring

21 Feb

Tambi Renee is well-versed on the dangers common household consumables pose to dogs and cats. One way to keep your pets from these dangers, Tambi Renee says, is to educate yourself on the potential risks of common household foods and top remove your pet’s access to these foods.

It may not be easy to keep your pet safe at all times, but there are ways to eliminate potential problems and prevent common sources of pet sickness and death. Certain beverages, says Tambi Renee, can be sickening and deadly to your animals, and should always be closed or capped off to keep pets from consuming them. Alcoholic and caffeinated beverages particularly pose very unique and intense health risks to small household animals. Tambi Renee recommends keeping these types of beverages away from your pets at all times.

Tambi Renee also recommends reading pet food labels and keeping up-to-date and the latest pet food ingredients. Some materials used to make pet food have even been found to pose health risks to humans, and it’s important for people to protect themselves from possible dangers.  Tambi Renee remains about conducting research on and learning about pet food before giving it to her animals. This helps her pets maintain good health and live longer lives.

Tambi Renee also suggests keeping track of the potential for plants, both indoor and outdoor, to pose a risk to your animals. Often times common house plants and naturally-growing plant species can be a major health concern to your animals.
