Most pets are big fans of routine. They like being fed, walked and played with at the same time each day, and deviations from their routine might cause them stress. Thus, maintaining these routines can be good for their health!
Taking your pet to the vet can be a stressful endeavor. Enticing your pet into their carrier, keeping them calm during the ride and speaking with your vet about any possible health issues can make for an eventful day. During all the hustle and bustle, you might blank on some important things to discuss with your vet!
The effects smoking can have on your lungs, as well as the people around you, are well known. But less attention has been paid to the effects smoking can have on our pets. Vaping or smoking a cigarette or cigar near your furry friend might not seem like a big deal, but it could lead to significant health problems.
To take care of your health, you probably do lots of things, from eating well to sleeping enough each night to exercising a few times a week. All of these things work to strengthen your immune system, which fights off pathogens that threaten your health. But what do you do to ensure your cat’s immune system is strengthened in the same way?
Spring and summer are the perfect times to get outside with your pup and explore the world! As you get ready for adventure, it’s a smart idea to pack yourself a first-aid kit. You never know what can happen when you’re out in unfamiliar territory. While you’re at it, pack one for your pup, too!
Just like it’s important for humans to see the doctor around once a year for a health checkup, our pets should also visit the vet annually for an exam. However, unlike humans, our pets can’t communicate to us if something is wrong, which means illnesses that develop between these checkups might go unnoticed for long periods of time.
It’s no surprise to any pet owner that as our dogs age they become more susceptible to a range of diseases and disorders. A common tragic disease most common to senior dogs is found in the kidneys. It is estimated that kidney disease will affect 10% of dogs at some point in their lives. Kidney disease can come on slowly or it can strike all at once. How it happens can depend on your dog’s general health, age, and some severe environmental factors.
After adopting a new puppy, you might be nervous about taking them out to the city or dog parks to interact with other pets. After all, a little puppy could easily be hurt by an animal or frightened by an unfamiliar situation, right?
Although cats are notorious for hiding symptoms of illness or injury, watchful pet parents are usually able to tell when something is slightly off with their furry friend. Perhaps your kitty hasn’t emptied their food bowl like they usually do, or maybe they’re acting more withdrawn than usual. When these small changes occur in rapid succession, it’s normal for you to be a little worried.
Every time you use a kitchen utensil, plate or bowl, you more than likely put it in the sink or dishwasher to be washed thoroughly before you use it again. This is common practice to avoid spreading germs or allowing bacteria to multiply. But when it comes to a pet’s food or water bowls, many pet owners can’t recall the last time they washed them!
