Celebrating 2017 and Reflecting on Our Pet Care Blog

What is it about New Year’s that gets everyone so excited? Apart from closing a year that’s had its share of ups and downs, facing a new one allows us to dream up new possibilities. We consider changing our weight, diet, style, politics, hobbies, and general approaches to life toward the end of every year.

To be sure, they’re incredibly sensitive to our fear, stress, pain, happiness, or excitement, and they’re equally responsive when we’re calm, patient, and relaxed. Reacting to our reactions is simply among the things they do best. With that in mind, it’s important that we treat dog body language as the critical communicator that it is – especially when it comes to preparing for the dog park. Read More…
  4. The More You Know: Understanding Common Pet Toxins – By now, most people know to keep toxic chemicals and other dangerous items out of reach of small children. The combination of a curious pet and easily accessible toxic chemicals, food, or other items can also be a recipe for disaster. 90% of accidental pet poisonings occur in the home, making it especially important to focus on pet toxins in your home.

  5. Pet Dental Care: Making a Difference, One Tooth at a Time – Is taking better care of your pet’s pearly whites on your list of New Year’s resolutions? If it’s not, it may be time to reconsider. Pet dental care is one of the most important, yet overlooked, areas of pet health. In fact, good dental health is just as important as proper nutrition, adequate exercise, and yearly vaccines when it comes to your pet’s overall wellness and longevity. Read More…
