Most pet doors are manual, but if you want control of which animals can open the door, an automatic door is a better choice.
On a manual dog door or cat door, the pet pushes the door open when going through.
Cats may act independent and secure, but they still rely on us to provide for their basic needs. This article will give a list of the minimum of items you need for your new cat.
Cats are naturally clean and dislike dirty and smelly litter boxes. The first thing to do to keep both yourself and your cat happy is ensuring the box is squeaky clean.
If the box is squeaky clean and your cat still prefers going somewhere else, take your cat to the vet.
Many household objects can be dangerous to cats, dogs, and even children.
Dogs are physically able to eat and digest many types of food. Cats are obligate carnivores, which means they cannot live without eating meat.
There are many discussions on what dogs should eat, and many views on which food is the best.
Some cats and dogs get an upset tummy when changing foods, but a gradual change helps prevent problems.
Unless you have or are getting a prescription diet and your veterinarian says otherwise, the following schedule is a good help to transition your pet to a new type of food without problems:
Days 1 and 2 – mix 3/4 of the old food with 1/4 of the new food
Days 3 and 4 – mix old and new food half-and-half
Days 5 and 6 – mix 1/4 old food with 3/4 new food
Day 7 – give 100% new food
If you see signs of problems during the week, slow down the transition.
Many cats and dogs are great friends, but reaching that point can take some patience.
If your dog isn‘t used to cats, start with considering the dog‘s personality.
No door can guarantee a cat can’t get out with the dog; the cat waits for the dog to go through.
Even if you have an electronic door that requires a collar key, a cat may run outside when the dog opens the door.

The opening width should be a little wider than the widest part of your cat or dog.
A pet door can be installed through a house door, a wall, or even a window.
Many choose to install their pet door in a house door, because it‘s a fairly simple installation and easy to restore – just replace the door.
How much work you need to do to secure your yard depends on your pets and their personality. Most dogs are perfectly happy going out in a fenced area and going back in without ever getting into trouble.
Plastic, Vinyl, K9–Composite – there are many pet door materials to choose from, along with a few different ways to construct the door. Which is the best depends on where it should be installed, what type of pet will use it, and how long it‘s expected to last.
The PlexiDor line of manual pet doors is the best dog door or cat door for cold weather.
These doors will function down to –40 degrees F/C. The door will still work below this temperature, but it will get frosty and the weather seal will freeze to the frame.
A pet door can solve some problems – it will allow your cat or dog access to the yard whenever you have the door unlocked.
Most install dog doors to not have to worry about potty breaks during long work days, to minimize accidents on the floor, and to give pets an opportunity to run and play when they want to.

Saying cats are “obligate carnivores” doesn‘t mean they like to eat meat and dislike crops – it means their bodies are unable to produce certain nutrients.
Cats like to scratch things – it‘s a natural instinct – but it doesn‘t have to a be a problem if we provide options.

Cats can be quite territorial – especially if they‘re used to being the only cat – but they can and will form close friendships with other cats. Be patient and give the process time; some cats require up to a year to decide if they like someone or not.

Manufacturing, warehouse, and offices are all located in Bradenton. The door has been made there since 1985.
For the manual PlexiDor, all keys are the same. It doesn’t matter since the key is used inside the house – the door cannot be unlocked from the outside.
The electronic PlexiDor is different; the collar keys that open and close the door work with RFID, and there are innumerable different codes.
