Bathing a dog is quite an adventure for the both of you, but bathing a senior dog, who may have certain health issues, can be a challenge. Added care and planning must be taken into consideration to ensure that bath time is both safe and as enjoyable as possible for the both of you.
If you have a cat with claws, you know how much they like to scratch. It’s not just a habit, though—it’s something more. Scratching enables cats to keep their claws in good shape—sharp, and not too long. It’s also a good chance for cats to mark their space. However, if your cats scratch and destroy your furniture or other things in your house then you won’t be happy with your pet.
Dogs are wonderful companions who bring joy into our lives, but along with that joy comes pet hair, mud, and the occasional stain. If you are ready to start freshening up your home, make sure that you use cleaning products safe for dogs.
Thousands of dogs and cats go missing every year. Many of them end up in local shelters that attempt to find their original owners, often without any luck. In a recent study that included over 7,000 stray pets, less than 22% of lost dogs were returned to their owners, and less than 2% of cats made it home. Pets found by shelters are often rehomed, and in sad cases may even be euthanized.

Warm weather brings lots of outdoor adventures, open windows, and extra time in the yard for your dog (and even for curious cats). These enjoyable activities can be risky if your dog runs off into the woods or your cat escapes through a torn screen or open door. It’s important to protect your pet from these risks, and one easy way to do that is by making sure they have the proper identification on them at all times.
