Acupuncture, the use of strategically placed needles on the body, is a popular treatment used by humans to assist in pain relief and relaxation. But did you know that this practice can also be used on our four-legged friends?
Cancer is complex. While many forms of cancer in dogs present similar symptoms, the underlying problems each type of cancer causes can vary wildly, which is why different cancers can have very different treatment plans and prognoses.
Eye injuries can happen to all cats at some point. Some get injured by a rogue substance, like dirt, getting in their eye. Others may run into something that scratches the eye’s surface or goes even deeper. But in multi-cat households, eye injuries are much more common.
Most dog owners are familiar with the sound of a whining dog. After being placed in a kennel for the workday, when sitting under the table begging for scraps or while waiting to go outside to do their business—dogs tend to whine for attention or because they need something. Because of this, dog owners might begin to ignore or block out the noise rather than give in to it.
Dogs’ ears tend to get a lot of attention—their floppy, erect or generally expressive nature is easily recognized. However, cats’ ears are very similar! With 32 muscles in each ear and the ability to turn them almost 180 degrees, cats’ ears are extremely useful—and interesting—parts of their bodies.
A cancer diagnosis is one of the scariest things a pet owner can receive. Nobody is ready to hear the news that their beloved cat or dog is suffering from a terrible, often painful disease that can have a poor prognosis. After you get the initial news, you might have a million questions. Among them: “What can we do to cure it?” and “Will my pet be able to beat this?”
Cats’ behavior is not always explainable; sometimes, they do strange things that we just don’t understand. From random meowing to jumping at the sight of their own shadow, there are a lot of cat behaviors and reactions that might perplex us.
When winter begins and snow and ice begin to pile up outside, it’s tempting to curl up under a blanket and hide away from the cold. Unfortunately for pet owners, though, dogs still need to go outside to do their business and get some daily exercise in!
When going through a separation, it can be hard enough to determine what to do with one pet that both you and your ex love and adore. However, when it comes to divorce and multiple pets, these decisions can be even harder.
During the winter months, pet owners and pets tend to stay inside more, away from the cold and snowy conditions outside. If you live in a cold climate and your pet experiences allergies, you’ll probably be relieved that the grass and leaves have died, and that pollen won’t resurface until spring.
