Springtime is rough for allergic pups. They do everything outside, whether that’s playing fetch, going for a walk or visiting other dogs. While they do so, they’re constantly bombarded with pollen that causes sneezing and itchy skin.
Degenerative joint disease is one of the most common ailments among senior cats. In many cases, joint diseases are unavoidable because they’re part of the natural aging process. Even cats who spend years living a healthy, active lifestyle can develop arthritis or other degenerative diseases.
Many of us are familiar with basic first aid for humans. You’ve probably had to clean up your fair share of cuts, scrapes and nose bleeds. Pets also require first aid from time to time—except the process is entirely different.
Animal cruelty is a horrendous act that needs to stop. The sad reality is that many people do nothing about it. When they see something questionable, they choose to look the other way. They might assume the situation isn’t that bad or simply don’t want to get involved. This means the animal is neglected, both by its owner and the witnesses who decide not to help.
Pet parents often wonder if commercial pet food is enough to satisfy their four-legged friend’s nutritional needs. Some pet diets need to be supplemented with other healthy sources of nutrients. For instance, omega-3 fatty acids are a great addition to your pet’s meals. Commonly found in fish oil, omega 3s offer a variety of health benefits, from shiny coats to a healthier heart.
Some pet parents have a hard time motivating their four-legged friends to workout. For others, it’s the complete opposite! Plenty of breeds jump at the opportunity to embark on long treks and swim in the ocean. But with intense exercise comes the risk of injury, which can put a premature end to all the fun.
Dog owners often struggle to make time for physical activity, both for themselves and Fido. Pups need daily exercise, otherwise they’ll find more destructive ways to burn off all that energy.
A lot of pet parents assume intestinal worms are nothing to worry about—they think all their sick pet needs is some medication, and they’re good to go. Adult pets might recover from worms unscathed, but the same can’t be said about puppies and kittens. What might be a minor nuisance to adult pets can prove fatal to fur babies that are just weeks old.
Grab your dog’s leash and Frisbee—April is the month to get up and get moving! In honor of Canine Fitness Month, take a moment to check in with your pup’s health. Are they trim and fit, or do they lounge on the couch all day? Regardless, now is a good time to try fun new activities that bolster your dog’s physical abilities and quality of life.
Sometimes, the biggest threat to your cat’s health is the smallest in size. Parasites are ever-present in a cat’s environment, especially if they like to roam the great outdoors. The first step in protecting your kitty from these critters is learning what they are, where they come from and what symptoms they cause.
