Summer days can quickly turn from Fun In The Sun to painful burns when the sun is blazing on the asphalt and concrete for hours. Dogs need extra care during these times since their paws will touch hot ground directly. But you can help them!
Nope. Dogs have allergies too! They’re just like us: they can inhale, ingest or have skin allergies. The most common allergens are grass, trees, cigarette smoke, perfumes, foods and fleas. How do you know if your dogs’ allergic to something?
When you’re out with your dogs, it’s always a good idea to check their bodies for foxtails. This barbed, grassy weed can burrow into your dog’s skin and can become very dangerous. Foxtails are relentless; they can cause swelling, discharge, abscesses, pain and, in severe cases, death.
Worry and stress can rule us when a natural disaster or other emergency happens. Relieve some of this by making sure your pets, and not only you and your human family, have everything they need. Be prepared for an unexpected emergency. Here are the basics, but pets are individuals, so add whatever else that is not listed to your “in case of emergency” storage that they require.
Dogs are bred for so many different reasons: height, hair, etc.… all based on what their owners favor, making them the most anthropomorphized animal on the planet. Given the sheer breadth of diversity that exists within this canine family it is so refreshing to hear about a sport that any dog can do, and they have a ton of fun doing it.
We’re in the midst of Pet Preparedness Month. Are you ready for dealing with the unexpected? Emergencies like natural disasters can catch us off guard, but having the right supplies and tools can drastically change how you deal with it. First things first, you want to have a first aid kit stocked and at the ready.
