Planning a summer road trip, or just lots of weekends camping and visiting loved ones with your dog? Time spent travelling in your car, or anywhere out and about can be risky for your dog. Millions of dogs and cats are hit and killed by cars each year, and unrestrained animals riding in a car can be injured (or injure you), even in low-speed accidents.
Think you are done spring cleaning your house? If you haven’t given your pet’s beds the same attention that you gave to the rest of your home, it’s time to give them a spring cleaning makeover.
Happy Fourth of July to our United States visitors! Oddly enough, we thought it would be fun if we shared some interesting information regarding the most popular dog breeds on the other side of the pond in the UK.
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.
