Cats have some unique care needs, and these are made even more apparent in the winter months. Once the temperatures drop, snow begins to fall and the days get shorter, you might need to implement a few more elements into your cat’s daily routines.
When winter begins and snow and ice begin to pile up outside, it’s tempting to curl up under a blanket and hide away from the cold. Unfortunately for pet owners, though, dogs still need to go outside to do their business and get some daily exercise in!
During the winter months, pet owners and pets tend to stay inside more, away from the cold and snowy conditions outside. If you live in a cold climate and your pet experiences allergies, you’ll probably be relieved that the grass and leaves have died, and that pollen won’t resurface until spring.
If you live in a place that experiences harsh, snowy winters and extremely low temperatures, you likely know the struggles of dog ownership in the cold seasons. When blizzards hit and you’d rather be anywhere than outside, it can be challenging for your dog to get their normal daily exercise—something that is needed both for physical health and mental stimulation.
2020 is right around the corner, and you might be gearing up to host your annual New Year’s Eve bash with your family and closest friends. Although celebrating surrounded by loved ones, dancing and making noise when the clock strikes 12 is all part of the fun, if you’re a pet owner, there’s one thing you should make sure not to forget about—your pet!
When the days get shorter, the sun is covered by clouds and the warmth of summer fades into chilly temperatures and harsh winds, a lot of changes can take place for both humans and pets. Many pet parents discover that their pups are less motivated, less excitable and more tired than usual.
As the holidays grow near, homeowners are sure to begin decorating their homes with festive décor, plants and lights. Although these decorations are marvelous to look at, if you’re a pet owner, they could also be sources of danger for your beloved furry friend.
The holidays are right around the corner, but if you have a pet suffering from digestive problems, you may be more focused on them than on the rest of your to-do list—party planning, gift wrapping, food prepping and more. When cats and dogs experience stomach problems like constipation, diarrhea or gut inflammation, the result can be bad all around. Your pet is likely to feel uncomfortable or even in pain, and you may be left cleaning up a mess or rushing your pet to the vet at the most inconvenient times.
Because cats can’t speak to us, pet owners might sometimes forget that our four-legged friends can experience many of the same ailments that we do—particularly stress. A lot of things can cause stress in our cats’ lives, including changes in routine and household. And, much like in humans, prolonged stress not only takes its toll on our cats’ mental health, but also their physical health.
Humans are keenly aware of our ability to concentrate and think clearly. When we’re experiencing brain fog or poor memory, we know right away. What we don’t always consider is that our dogs experience very similar things, especially as they age.
