There is lactose reduced milk. In fact, you will find products out there that claim to be ‘highly digestible milk.’ Notice the solution was a ‘lactose reduced milk’ and not a ‘lactose free milk.’ It really is best if you just avoid the milk altogether.

It was mentioned that not all cats are lactose intolerant. However, most cats do have a problem digesting milk’s sugars, and so that needs to be taken into consideration. If you have any questions about giving your cat milk, you can ask your vet and even have your cat evaluated. Perhaps your cat is not lactose intolerant, and he or she can have milk and be just fine. It should be mentioned, however, that milk also contains quite a lot of fat.

This would be one benefit to buying this type of milk for your cat. One thing you want to be sure of is that your cat is also drinking plenty of water. You also want to be sure as well that your cat doesn’t develop a calcium deficiency. This shouldn’t happen by simply leaving off the milk because there are plenty of other ways for a cat to get enough calcium in its diet.

Rice milk and soy milk are two other alternatives. There are all kinds of things you can do to address this concern. You don’t want your cats to have digestive issues based on the lactose or sugar that is contained in milk. Figure out the best solution, and you will keep your cats healthy and happy. If you decide to stop giving your cats milk, and you feel bad about it, don’t worry because you are doing what’s best for your cats. There are plenty of other treats available, too.

Brief Explanation of Dog Training Collars

When it comes to dog training collars, there are quite a few to choose from depending on the size and disposition of your dog as well as your training needs.

Here are a few examples of dog training collars:

Traditional Collars

You can find traditional dog training collars in various widths, styles and colors. It is important that they ride high on your dog’s neck, not loose so that it slides down near the top if your dog’s shoulder blades. For the safety of your dog, make sure that the collar is loose enough to slip over your dog’s head. In growing puppies, make sure to frequently check collar size.

Dog Harness

A harness goes around the dog’s neck and around the shoulders behind the legs. These are the best option for dogs that have disease in the throat or trachea or upper respiratory disease because as opposed to a regular collar, a harness relieves pressure while training.

Halter Type Dog Training Collars

This option will give you the best control during dog training; they control your dog’s head which means you have control over your dog. There are people who are hesitant about the use of this type of collar being as it appears to be more of a muzzle, however once they understand the benefits many opt for its use as well.

Chain Slip Dog Collars

This type of dog training collar is also known as a check chain or a choke collar, when used correctly and on the appropriate dogs, they are effective training as well as retraining tools. Most often these collars are used strong-willed dogs, those who pull when on a leash or those who are not responsive to training when they wear traditional collars.

If you will be using one of these collars on your dog, it is crucial that a trainer show you how to properly use it. With these collars you cannot have a steady pull motion, they involve a quick tug and release action, and this will tell your dog that a different behavior is being as asked for. It is important to note that these collars must only be worn during a dogs training time, they should never be placed in a dog in a crate, and never use them on dogs with delicate tracheas, for example Yorkshire Terriers.

Pronged Collars

These collars are also known as pinch collars and they contain blunt prongs which protrude from the links in an n inward direction. These should only be used to train the most stubborn pullers, they are used as a temporary training tool to help dogs who are not responding to other collars, change their behavior.

A dog owner who knows how to properly train a dog will do just fine with a regular collar, they will rarely have to use these types of collars. These collars are most often used to retrain dogs that were not properly trained to begin with or to train dogs who were not trained when they were small.
