The past few years have seen an influx of people working from home. A remote work environment is challenging at times, but not for your pet! They love having you at their beck and call. For pets, owners working from home is a dream come true.
Heading back East, we connected with SAVE Animal Shelter in Princeton, New Jersey. The SAVE shelter facility has the capacity to house upwards of 100 animals at a time, and they have become the region's model animal welfare organization.
Most cat ailments tend to fly under the radar. Kitties can’t tell their owners when their teeth hurt, but even if our cats could speak, they’d say nothing anyway! Cats would much rather deal with the pain than reveal their weaknesses to people and other pets. Unfortunately, their deceptiveness means many diseases are often left to fester.
Owners typically assume their pet’s seasonal allergies will fade away along with the grass and flowers. But for some unlucky pups and cats, winter means their allergies have just begun! Spring and summer bring high pollen counts, but the cold months increase your pet’s exposure to indoor allergens like dust, mold and household chemicals.
It’s fascinating to watch our feline friends in their element. Cats are master hunters, pouncing on songbirds before they have a chance to escape. Pet parents might find it endearing, if not a little gross, to find hunted birds lying on their back porch. But while one dead bird may seem harmless, it’s not good to let your cat go bird hunting!
You know you want to adopt a pet. What you don’t know is how much it’s going to cost when all is said and done. Adoption is definitely cheaper than buying a pet from the store or a breeder, but future pet parents should still have an idea of how much money to save up.
The most common treatment for diabetic pups is insulin therapy. Insulin is a hormone that allows the body’s cells to absorb glucose from the bloodstream. High blood glucose levels occur when the cells develop insulin resistance. Pet parents administer daily injections at home to elevate the dog’s insulin levels and increase the rate at which glucose enters cells.

Allergy symptoms in dogs are easy to spot. Recognizing when to step in and help is the hard part. Seasonal allergies are rarely fatal, but cases that go untreated can quickly become worse.
You’ve filled out the paperwork, completed the background check and passed the interview. It’s finally time to bring home your new fur baby! But completing the adoption process was only the beginning—the real challenge still lies ahead. Transitioning your pet to a new environment is no simple task and is often stressful for everyone involved.
