    New, high-tech wearable for pets could be a lifesaver when an animal is lost or injured

    Next to our children, our pets are some of the most important members of our families. We do everything we can to make sure both our kids and pets are safe, but eventually kids can shoulder some of the burden themselves. But when Fido runs off, we can’t expect him to tell the nice neighbor that finds him that he has a medical condition, or who his veterinarian or owner is. Though your pet will never learn to talk, there is a way to provide whoever finds your lost -or injured- pet with the information they need to offer aid.

    Whether it’s waking us up in the morning with a kiss, greeting us when we come home from work, or cuddling with us on the couch, dogs make our lives better. Since they are so good to us, we go to great lengths to return the favor. Oftentimes, that means slipping them a little something under the dinner table. While a lot of the time this is okay, if we’re not careful, certain foods can cause serious, even fatal problems for our pets. The next time you’re tempted to spoil your dog with food from your plate, make sure you’re not feeding him one of the ten most common foods…

    Glow Leash Giveaway @DogeGlow for Black Dogs ONLY

    I grew up with a black lab cross called Bew Bew and I loved him so much! He had beautiful shiny black fur with dark chocolate colored eyes. I had him from grade 6 til I graduated from college.  So I am doing a very special giveaway today in his memory.  I recently read an article about how black dogs are abandoned, least likely to be adopted and generally illicit the most ‘fear’ from strangers. That made me so sad that I want to make this special giveaway to only BLACK dogs. I am showing them special love because they totally deserve it. Your dog does not have to be…

    Pets and the Holidays with @AVMAvets

    Just in time for the excitement of the holiday season, the wonderful Dr. Doug Aspros, from the Bond Animal Hospital, has offered us some valuable advice when caring for our precious pets.
