We’re in the heat of summer now, but pretty soon, the temperatures will dip, the days will get shorter and fall will be in the air. And when fall rolls around, seasonal allergies tend to, as well—for both humans and our pets!
CBD has become extremely popular in the human health and wellness communities as a natural aid for anxiety, insomnia and pain. Now, many are beginning to wonder if this natural compound could be useful and safe for our furry friends, too.
Adopting a new cat requires a lot of pre-planning. You’ll not only need to meet your new member of the family and ensure it’s the right fit, but you’ll also need to get all the essentials: a litter box and litter, food, toys, a pet carrier and more.
Different Types of Dog Diarrhea and How to Respond If your dog has diarrhea, or liquidy, unformed stools, you are undoubtedly interested in making it stop. There are two main types of canine diarrhea, and they are likely to require different types of treatment. However, only one poses serious health risks and needs immediate attention.
Summer means swimming for many pet owners and their adventurous pups, but unless you have access to a freshwater lake or stream, you’re most likely going to be swimming in a pool. While pools are generally free of the bacteria and diseases that could be lurking in natural bodies of water, they do play host to a number of chemicals, including chlorine.

One of the major parts of owning a dog is attuning yourself to your dog’s cues, including those that tell you it needs to go outside—and fast. Bathroom breaks are not always convenient, especially if you don’t have a yard to let your dog loose into, but they are something every pet owner gets used to.
Everyone’s appetite can fluctuate from time to time. You might be starving by dinnertime one day and only feel like having a light meal the next. However, when we give our pets food each day, we usually expect them to eat it right away.
Because of our cats’ litter box habits, it is relatively easy to notice when they are not as “regular” as they should be. When daily scoopings turn up empty multiple days in a row, it is pretty clear that something is wrong.
As dog owners, we might not always notice when something is going wrong on our dog’s skin, especially when it’s concealed behind a leg or hidden by fur. But we are prone to noticing when our dogs will not leave a section of their bodies alone—licking, biting and scratching over and over.
