Advice on Puppies this Holiday Season

As much as I disagree about giving pets as gifts during the holidays, I know it is going to happen. I only hope that everyone remembers that a new puppy is no ordinary gift; it isn't something that can be put in a closet or the attic when your attention for it runs out. Puppies are loving companions and need to be…

The Importance of Finding the Right Dog Crate

Dogs are den animals. It's their nature. Knowing this, it is important to create a safe area in the home where your dog can call its own little den. I recommend dog crates. They provide a safe, personal area where your dog can curl up…

Show Some Love to Our Smaller Furry Friends

We share a personal connection with our dogs. When I’m upset, my dog feels that same sense of depression and will do everything and anything to help. Dogs are quite emotional and attached to us; they understand both our joys and our sorrows. It is easy to see why they are members of our family. All this underscores…

Post-Neutering Pet Care

I’d like to remind everyone about the importance of spaying or neutering their cat or dog. Lately, I’ve been noticing an increasing number of feral cats hanging out around the neighborhood. Now I haven’t seen any dogs roaming about the message of spaying and neutering their dog is still the same – get it done! Believe…

Urinary Problems in Cats

Remembering a Lost Pet

A Facebook friend of mine recently lost their cat of 14 years. I’ve never had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Sugar but the heartfelt emotional post from my friend about her lost companion touched me. I was genuinely upset for this lovable cat and its poor parent. It got me thinking about how many people take their pets for granted. Our dogs and cats provide us with unwavering love. Next time, they wait for you to come home from work or school every day and are filled with the utmost joy as you…

Adjusting to City Life

I’m not exactly a city person; I admit it. I grew up in more of a rural area with occasional trips to suburbia if we ever felt like going shopping. That all changed when I went away to college. It wasn’t a major metropolitan area but it was a lot busier than anything I was used to experiencing. 

The one thing I missed most about moving to the city was the company of my dog. Now I know many city dwellers have dogs and their pets couldn’t be happier. I’m just worried that Conway (my…

Finding Pet Food for Dogs with Sensitive Stomachs

My dog suffers from a squeaky stomach. You know those crazy noises that come from the dog’s belly after it eats? I didn’t give it much thought at first but after a recent trip to the vet, I discovered it was my dog’s food. After some research and tests with different types of dog food, we finally found a brand that…

My dog is worth the world to me.

The day of New Years Eve my dog was attacked by three other dogs.  At the time I thought they were Pit Bulls, I was later corrected by the owner, they are American Bull Dogs.  A breed which is larger than a Pit Bull.  Needless to say New Years Eve is considered a holiday so most vets were closed, the only one I found open was the emergency animal hospital.  Because it was a holiday they charged a $115 just to walk in the…
