Here are some pet paintings (original photo’s then final paintings) by Portrait Xpress artists. Certainly the original photo’s are good… but you can see that the Paintings make a great gift/ memory! And the beauty of paintings rather than prints, is that so many alterations can be made, up to the person who comissions the artwork.

Hello everyone! As you know, as well as having great fun running my bespoke artwork site www.portraitxpress.com, (selling paintings of pets and people copied by hand from your photos), Im also a veterinarian day to day ocassionally- this was what I spent 5 years at University in England training to become.

So, today I want to talk a bit about my work as a veterinarian. Lots of problems that pets get are because of silly things that their owners do, much like as in the world most of the problems are created by humans, fighting and killing each other and starting wars and so on and so forth.

Well, with pets its a similar story im afraid. In the wild, animals tend to eat certain foods, depending on what type of animals they are.

Carnivores like dogs tend to mainly eat meat (I guess a wild dog example could be something like a wolf or a jackal?). Anyway, they must eat meat, and scavenge for other things. Certainly they dont have a luxury diet.

Anyway, as pets, as well as eating dog food, lots of people like to give dogs treats also. One thing people give is rice (which I dont think wild dogs would eat much of?!!!!).

grrr! Im   WILD!!!!

grrr! Im WILD!!!!

Here is a painting of someone’s dog, just as a sideline!!

Okay, so eating Rice, NOT GOOD. Why?

Well, it makes your urine a bit alkaline and then this pre-disposes dogs to getting STONES in the bladder.

Obviously thats uncomfortable, and so then the dogs have a problem going to the toilet. Owch!!

So, as with all of life- practice balance in all things!!

Don’t give your pet too much HUMAN FOOD ie food for people, as otherwise by mistake you could give it a few medical problems.

Have a great day! Matt.

Sorry for the self- promotion, I’m British so I’m not good at it!
