Tips to Take Care of a Rescue Animal

Animals exist in this world from a time a lot earlier than humans. Humans, in general, have the majority of the population and in one way or another is running, responsible and accountable for all the acts being done. The animals have had their natural habitats shortened due to the resource requirements of humans and on the other side, humans have grown fond of having animals as pets as well for different purposes. Pets can be kept for a source of entertainment or as a hobby as well. Well in the last couple of years there has been a lot of awareness created for rescuing animals that might be hurt, abandoned or extremely ill. Rescuing animals right now mostly includes but not limited to cats and dogs. Well rescuing an animal can be a huge responsibility. People who intend to rescue animals hesitate mainly due to the fact they don’t know how they can take care of the rescued animals.

Well to be able to go ahead and take care of the rescued animal in the best possible manner it is suggested to use Wi-Fi nanny cam to be able to have a look any time of the day even without being physically there. The area where you plan to keep the rescued being should have motion sensor lights so that all the movements and behavior of the animal is known and one can be cautious about it or learn from it. So, preparing the place to keep the animal is the first step, so one definitely needs to remove household chemicals from the reachable places, dangling items to be removed and cover-up delicate furniture with a slip or a throw. Well right after getting things ready at the home or any other place one needs to go and gather supplies for the animal that can be a sitting basket, supplementary food, bedding, water bowls or even grooming supplies. Once this is done you need to mentally prepare other people living in that place and set the rules that what are the do’s and don’ts after the animal is here. If any information about the animal before it was rescued is available then all that information shall be kept in consideration.

Building trust with animals is the only way that the rescued animals will be able to heal fully and be as they normally are. Every animal needs space and might act a little differently like eat a lot or chew a lot but through a Wi-Fi nanny, cam one can keep an eye on how the animal is behaving unsupervised or in his own personal space. The animal initially might act up tense or sometimes aggressive as well so patience is the key here, note down the patterns or things that cause changes in behavior and adjust accordingly. If the animal is doing something un-acceptable you have to firmly let him know that this is not to be done again but kindness needs to be maintained. Making animals used to daily noises in your routine is compulsory as well. Make them used to it slowly and gradually so that they can accept it. The animal might show signs of separation anxiety; they might cry, bark or pee a lot when left alone, so in that case, someone should be around most of the time, play with the animal and make them feel wanted.

Lastly feeding the animal according to their nature is very important. One can keep eye on them using cams and motion detector lights that what time do they eat and do they like to eat fast or slow or when it’s hot or cold. Training the animals builds a connection as well, training becomes easier with treats and then they can be made to exercise to stay active. The person who is taking care of the rescued animal should go ahead establish a connection with a doctor as well to keep things right. Well, technology such as the cams and motion detector lights can help note patterns and understand the animal in a better manner as it allows noting down their acts and behaviors when they are alone and feel free. It is suggested to an eye on them through such means till the time they don’t start acting up normal and blend in with the people around.

We Know How to Prevent Heart Disease—So Why Don’t We?

I bet you know that heart disease is common. I bet you even know it's deadly. But I have two questions for you:

  1. Did you know it's the number one killer worldwide?
  2. Did you know that almost all of it is entirely preventable?

It's true. Not only does cardiovascular disease kill millions of people worldwide each year, it's also almost entirely preventable.

The truth is, most people don't want to change their life. They have the power to change their life, to make themselves far less susceptible to cardiovascular disease, and they simply don't do it.

But why?

There are several reasons why people don't make those lifestyle changes. Let's look a little more closely at each one.

Lack of information

The truth is, plenty of people don't know the risk they are at, much less how to minimize those risks. Consider that in 2015, 82% of the 17 million premature deaths were in low- and middle-income countries, and 37% of those deaths were the result of cardiovascular disease.

Out of the 17 million premature deaths (under the age of 70) due to noncommunicable diseases in 2015, 82% are in low- and middle-income countries, and 37% are caused by CVDs. The truth is, many of those people simply haven't had access to the information because the medical education infrastructure simply isn't there. We have to believe that at least some of those people would make the necessary lifestyle changes if they knew they needed to make them.

Time, energy, and cost

While in the long-term it is quite obviously more expensive to not take care of yourself, many of us live in the short-term, day-to-day. Exercising, eating well, and taking care of our personal health can take time, energy, and cost not all of us are convinced we have. In the middle of a long week, our day may consist of getting up, driving to work, being stressed all day at work with the exception of a smoke break or two, then drive-through dinner on the way home before crashing after a long, hard day. While long-term that lifestyle is not at all sustainable, there are plenty of Americans who can't imagine living another way. This especially true as fast food is subsidized in ways that much healthier options often aren't, and both rural and urban food deserts can also contribute to difficulties in eating well.

Lack of motivation

Of course, some people know they could live healthier, and can afford the time, energy, and cost, and still choose not to make those lifestyle choices. This is likely the category most unhealthy Americans fall into, to be quite frank.

So what lifestyle changes would it take?

The truth is, it wouldn't take much to make a major dent in those risk factors. The following factors, referred to as “life's simple 7” by the American Heart Association, decrease the risk of heart disease by 80%, stroke by 50%, and cancer by 30%. So why wouldn't you make these seven changes?

Those simple seven?

  • Manage blood pressure
  • Control cholesterol
  • Reduce blood sugar
  • Get active
  • Eat better
  • Lose weight
  • Stop smoking

None of those are hard steps to take, and each of them can help make the other steps easier. For instance, quitting smoking makes it easier to exercise, and exercising regularly makes it easier to lose weight. Losing weight has been shown to help with blood pressure, and also makes exercising easier. Eating better makes exercising easier and has been proven to help you lose weight. Reducing your blood sugar makes it easier to exercise, and helps you lose weight. These seven steps each make the other steps easier, so it really isn't nearly as big a step as you might at first think.

Yet most Americans fail at this simple checklist. Roughly one American dies every forty seconds from cardiovascular disease—that's more than 800,000 people each year! Put another way: Roughly the population of Charlotte, North Carolina dies each and every single year from cardiovascular diseases just in the United States.

So why don't we prevent heart disease? I don't know. But I bet we could all do a little better getting the information out there and helping people make healthier lifestyle choices.
