    How to Identify and Treat an Abscess in Your Cat

    If you own more than one cat, you’ve likely had to break up your fair share of kitty skirmishes. When the claws come out, your cats are at risk of sustaining an injury.

    July is Pet Parasite Awareness Month

    Wouldn’t life be so much easier if you could read your pet’s thoughts? For one, you’d know right away if something was wrong with their health. Unless you’re a dog or cat whisperer, pet owners usually don’t realize parasites have taken root until their poor furry friend starts getting an upset stomach on a regular basis.

    If you’ve ever caught a fleck of dust in your eye or accidentally touched your eyes with an irritant on your hand, you know how agonizing it can be. You might spend all day dabbing tears away, putting in eyedrops or rinsing your eye. For some, it means taking out contacts and wearing glasses for the day.

    Heatstroke Can Affect Cats, Too!

    As the weather starts to heat up and your family begins making plans to spend more time outdoors, practicing warm weather safety with your cat will be vital to keeping them happy and playful all summer long. Much like humans, cats that spend too much time in extremely warm environments—whether that is in a particularly hot house, a car or outdoors without the cover of shade—can suffer discomfort or distress from extended heat exposure.  

    How to Relieve Your Dog’s Car Sickness

    Similar to many humans who are unable to ride in the car for long stretches of time without feeling ill, dogs can suffer from motion sickness that leaves them feeling uneasy, nauseous and stressed—and makes a mess of your backseat.
