Cats are cuddly, fuzzy and soft…that is, apart from their claws! Cat claws are a major point of concern for pet parents because of their capacity for destruction—namely, toward your furniture and rugs.
February is American Heart Month—not only for people, but for our furry friends, too! Regardless of whether you live in or outside of the USA, take some extra time this month to focus on your furry friend’s heart health and begin to build healthy habits that will benefit them for the rest of their lives.
Ear problems are somewhat common in cats and are generally easy to spot. If your cat is constantly pawing or scratching at their ear, shaking their head and acting otherwise unwell, there’s a pretty good chance that something is going on in their ears.
For many families, their dog is their first “baby.” If you’ve raised them since they were a puppy, your family is all they’ve known, and you’ve gotten the joy of watching them grow and learn over the years. Unfortunately, this dynamic can get more complicated when a new baby is on the way.
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?
Squeaky toys: They’re either tons of fun or a pet parent’s worst nightmare. Dogs who like squeaky toys tend to really love them, meaning they chomp and squeak on their plush or rubber toys all day and all night. But what is behind the adoration of these squeaky, loud, and potentially headache-inducing toys?

Cats’ behaviors largely stem from evolutionary instincts and behaviors they learn as kittens from their siblings and mothers. One somewhat strange behavior cats may partake in is sucking or chewing on blankets or similar types of fabric.
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.
