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.
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.
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.
Spring brings longer days, warmer temperatures, and the return of many common pests, including fleas and ticks. These common insects can be at best annoying, and at worst harmful to your pet’s health. Luckily, there are many ways you can protect them. Here is our guide for Spring 2017.
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.
Easter is the first major holiday of spring, and many of us spend is at large gatherings with friends and family. If you are hosting an Easter celebration this year, or travelling to one with your pets, make sure you consider these four issues regarding Easter and dogs to ensure a safe celebration for all.
March is the month when many of us start getting outside more; cleaning out our homes and garages, working in the garden, and hosting more get-togethers as the weather improves. March is also Poison Prevention Awareness Month, and the timing is perfect as many spring activities expose us (and our pets) to new dangers.
