As pet owners, we work hard to keep our dogs healthy so they can live a long, happy life. Unfortunately, many health problems are out of our control, and the diagnoses can be scary.
The holidays are right around the corner, and like many pet owners, you’re probably wondering what you should give to your furry friend in their tiny pet stocking. After all, our pets are family members and deserve something to unwrap and enjoy during the holidays, too!
Many people are aware that November is Diabetes Awareness Month, but fewer know that pets can suffer from this disease, as well. Because thousands of cats and dogs are diagnosed with diabetes around the world each year, November now serves as a reminder of the disease in our furry friends, too.
Cats are creatures of habit, and they don’t usually appreciate their homes and routines changing abruptly. In cases of stress and anxiety, cats may begin exhibiting symptoms that harken back to their desire for routine. However, these routine behaviors are often to the detriment of your furry friend.
Much like in humans, chronic inflammation is a problem that can lead to health complications in our furry, four-legged counterparts. Although inflammatory immune responses are normal, chronic inflammation is not, and mitigating it starting when your pet is young may help them live a longer and more comfortable life.
When you first adopted your cat, you were probably given a recommendation for a particular type of food or had a preferred brand you opted for right away. However, after months or even years of providing your pet with the same food, there may come a day when you feel the need to change your cat’s food type.
It can be scary and devastating to learn that your dog suffers from a dangerous heart condition like congestive heart failure. However, once you receive the diagnosis, another process begins: the routine care and management of your dog’s disease. For many pet parents, this process can be just as or even more challenging than handling the diagnosis itself.
When humans are in pain, we are able to communicate to others what hurts and how severe the pain is using our words. Unfortunately, our furry friends do not have this option. For this reason alone, it can be difficult to know if and when your cat is experiencing pain.
Dog owners love to spoil their dogs. Whether learning a new trick, behaving well, or just being too cute to resist, you might be tempted to shower your pup with cuddles, pets, toys and—of course—treats.
As most cat lovers know, cats are largely awake at night, roaming through the house in the dark. Although many people believe they are nocturnal, cats are actually crepuscular, which means they are most active at dawn and at dusk. Unfortunately, this means that you and your cat’s sleep schedules are unlikely to be the same.
