As a dog owner, you’re probably familiar with numerous intestinal parasites, such as the tapeworm or hookworm, but another common parasitic worm doesn’t affect your dog’s intestines—it affects its heart and lungs.
Most cats are known for going crazy over their food. Sometimes, they act like they haven’t been fed in days and scarf their kibble or canned meals down in mere minutes. This is why it can be so alarming to wake up one day and discover that your cat is not the least bit interested in its food.
Many dog owners are not simply one-pet kinds of people. If you’re making the decision to add a new puppy to your family when you already own an older dog, it’s important to think carefully beforehand. While getting a new pet may be extremely exciting and fast-paced for you, it must be a slow and calculated transition for your older dog.
As humans, we understand the concept of dreaming as stories and scenarios that our brains create while we are asleep. Our brains are full of activity throughout the night and conjure wild images and creations, usually during the rapid-eye movement (REM) stage of sleep.
Cats are known for lounging around most of the day, being lazy and getting fat. An overweight cat is often considered “normal,” and we may chuckle at the sight of a tubby cat waddling around the house. But allowing our cats to become overweight is actually a serious problem. Feline obesity can lead to a great number of health risks in cats and is easily prevented.
For our dogs, food might as well be the whole world. Our pups love food, so much so that they could eat all day if we let them, and they rarely pass up an opportunity to sneak a table scrap or two.
Dogs do a lot of weird things, but perhaps one of the strangest, most irritating things they do on occasion is scoot. Yup, that’s right—the awkward, contorted-looking motion wherein your dog scoots its bum across your freshly-cleaned carpet, possibly leaving a nasty odor or stain behind.
When adopting a new cat, one of the first things recommended to pet owners is to have the cat dewormed if it hasn’t been already. Worms, those nasty little internal parasites, are one of the most common health problems in cats, and they can be tricky to spot.
Dogs don’t have the power of speech like humans do. This is why, when they get sick, they need to show us owners they’re hurting in other ways. While some illnesses have tell-tale signs like physical symptoms, others manifest in more silent ways, such as a change in behavior.
If you own a cat, you know that scratches can happen when you least expect it. They might be accidents, such as when your cat’s rear claws scratch your legs when it leaps off of your lap, or they could be intentional, often a product of your cat feeling stressed and needing to protect itself by clawing.
