Happy Paw-lidays!!!

‘Tis the season for parties, family and friends, good food and all things glittery.  But remember all the holiday cheer can make for a stressful time for Fido or Fluffy or even lead to a trip to the emergency room for them.  Not something you want to be doing this time of year and not something they want to be experiencing this time of year. So from our friends at the AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association): Share this:EmailLike this:Like...

Trick-or-Treat Pet Safety

Halloween Safety Tips Top 10 Safety Tips for Pet Parents With Halloween just round the corner many of us may be thinking about what cute, scary, cleaver costume Fido might wear this year.  We wish everyone a very enjoyable and frightful Halloween.  However, to ensure Fluffy and Fido also enjoy the evening please keep these tips in mind. 1. No tricks, no treats: That bowl of candy is for trick-or-treaters, not for Scruffy and Fluffy. Chocolate in all forms—especially dark or baking chocolate—can be very dangerous for dogs and cats. Candies containing the artificial sweetener xylitol can also cause problems. If you do suspect your pet has ingested something toxic, please call your veterinarian 707-822-2402 or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center at (888) 426-4435. 2. Popular Halloween plants such as pumpkins and decorative corn are considered to be relatively nontoxic, but they can produce stomach upset in pets who nibble on them. 3. Wires and cords from electric lights and other decorations should be kept out of reach of your pets. If chewed, your pet might suffer cuts or burns, or receive a possibly life-threatening electrical shock. 4. A carved pumpkin certainly is festive, but do exercise caution if you choose to add a candle. Pets can easily knock a lit pumpkin over and cause a fire. Curious kittens especially run the risk of getting burned or singed by candle flames. 5. Dress-up can be a big mess-up for some pets. Please don’t put your dog or cat in a costume UNLESS you know he or she loves it (yup, a few pets are real hams!). For pets who prefer...

National Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day

February 23rd is International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day   International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day is a day for the dogs. And, that’s because there is no one else who can really appreciate the true value of a dog biscuit. They say “Every dog has his day”. And, it will definitely be his day,when you give him some tasty dog biscuits. You might appreciate their value in pleasing your dog, as a reward for behavior, or enticing them to do a trick. But, the dog is the recipient of the treat. Celebrate today by giving your dog a few dog biscuits. Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. It wasn’t a dog. It had to be a dog owner. In any event, it appears that holidays and specials days are “going to the dogs”. Why this is an “International” day, we may never know. Share this:EmailLike this:Like...
