It’s so important that your dog be able to exercise and explore in your yard, but they also need to be protected from their own blissful ignorance of the dangers in the outside world. Traditional fences and electronic dog fences are both viable options for keeping your dog on your property. More and more people,…

  • GoDaddy Wins the Internet with Superbowl Troll of Budweiser, Puppy Peddlers, and Crap Web Sites

    Back in January of 2014, Budweiser, the stale, pale ale with the foam on the bottom, put out a Super Bowl ad featuring a golden retriever puppy. I had several problems with the ad.The first was the "puppy adoptions" sign. That's an expensive and permanent sign, and those dogs are NOT being "adopted" -- they are pure bred dogs being SOLD. Nothing wrong with that, but do not piss on my leg and tell me it's raining.When you are selling pure breed retrievers (the most common pure breed, so no points for free thinking there Budweiser shill-meister), you are not in the ADOPTION business, but…

    The idea of vaccinations to prevent disease dates back to 1796. In that year Edward Jenner, a British physician, noted that dairymaids who had caught cowpox (a minor disease), could not catch smallpox (an often fatal disease in humans).Jenner took infected matter from the hand of Sarah Nelmes, a local dairymaid who had become infected with cowpox, and inserted this ooze into the cut arm of James Phipps, a healthy eight-year-old boy. The boy then caught cowpox.Forty-eight days later Jenner injected smallpox matter into the boy. Miraculously, it had no effect. This was the first recorded…

  • Dogs Stung By Bees: Go Ahead & Laugh (But, You’re Going to Hell!)

    19 Jan 2015 | 12:51 pm
    Mmm… bees! (DOH!) Did you ever laugh at something that made you feel like you’re going to hell? That’s how I feel right now. These poor dogs snapped at bees and got stung. (And now look like sock monkeys) As far as I know, they all seemed to recover well after a trip to the vet, and their owners were calm enough to snap priceless photos. What to do if your dog gets stung by a bee If it’s possible to get the stinger out, that will help your dog a lot. Use a tweezers to grab it, or a credit card to scrape it out, but try not to break the stinger, and make things worse.

  • A pretty bad broken nose.

    31 Jan 2015 | 12:54 pm
    This little guy evidently did something to antagonize his adult buddy in the home.   Apparently, the big guy bit down on his head - ouch.  He didn't crack it like an egg, but close.  His owners found him with a severe nose-bleed, a few puncture wounds, and the top of his head puffing in and out when he breathes.  Here's a link to the video. I had hoped it was just a puncture to his sinuses, but his nasal bones were broken and caved in, as well.  Every time he breathed, air was puffing under the skin.  We also found that the muscle and periosteal membrane (that covers the…
  • People Helping Pets this Christmas

    3 Dec 2014 | 10:33 am
    At this holiday time of year, we think about giving and receiving gifts, and about helping those in need.  Kennett’s Humane Officer, Tena Petix, has been going above the call of duty in helping the animals in her care.  Dr. Mobley and Dr. Brigance and the whole team at Kennett Veterinary Clinic are helping her help again this year with “The Pet Angel Tree”.  During the month of December, you can bring a donation for the shelter animals to Kennett Veterinary Clinic at 1704 Saint Francis Street on the west end of Kennett.  Donations can be monetary, food, treats, towels, blankets, or…
  • "Letter to the Editor"? Did not see that coming.

    22 Nov 2014 | 3:34 pm
    I was a little surprised to find my last post about our animal control situation printed in the Daily Dunklin Democrat newspaper as a letter to the editor.  I'm not upset, just surprised, as they didn't talk to me about it, and I didn't send it to them.  Of course, anything on the internet is fair game, so no worries. There were two reasons I didn't send it to the newspaper.   The first is that I figure people who read my blog are at least half-way interested in what I have to say, whereas the general public may not be. The second is that I thought my discussion was…
  • Balancing finding homes for needy pets, and providing good animal control service.

    20 Nov 2014 | 2:51 pm
    You may be aware that there are some upsets and disagreements over the handling of our city’s animal control department.  This is a complex issue, and I fear that it is being oversimplified in a polarizing way.  When people of good will seem to be at odds, there is usually some failure to communicate.  It is a mistaken idea to portray this as a contest between people who love animals and want to find homes for them, versus people who hate them and want to kill them.  Or you might say that it’s a contest between having a “shelter” that finds homes for the unwanted pets, versus an…
  • The case of the dog who ate the non-food item.

    25 Oct 2014 | 7:25 pm
    Eating non-food items is a big problem in pets.  It happens so often that I am amazed at how seldom I have to do surgery to remedy the situation.  Frequently the animal vomits up the item.  Sometimes it passes all the way through. In September, we were all set to do surgery for an intestinal blockage on a young Saint Bernard.  She had eaten very little food for the past 3 weeks, and had lost 25 percent of her body weight.  I could feel a mass in her abdomen.  The night before her operation, she passed a pair of underpants she had eaten weeks earlier.  Her recovery was uneventful after…

  • 9 Things to Pack for a Road Trip With Your Dog

    30 Jan 2015 | 6:00 am
    Does the low price of gas these days have you planning a road trip with your dogs? Just last month, I drove from northern Virginia to Asheville, North Carolina, with my two pups, Autumn and Rocket. It was our first road trip together, and I was both excited and scared. To prevent any problems along the way, I put together a packing to-do list with help from AAA director of public relations and fellow pet parent, Heather Hunter. Use it for your next trip!

Share this image "Smokey is such a special dog, and he deserves to put his paw print on history, just like he's put his paw print on our hearts," says White, who was one of nearly 1,000 people who submitted their rescue pet's biographies to the Fall Into a Nicholas Sparks Love Story Contest in the hopes of seeing their dog in the author's next novel.

  • 8 Ways Having a Dog Can Get -- and Keep -- You Fit

    30 Jan 2015 | 2:00 am
    Ask anyone who owns a dog, and they will tell you that there is no need for a gym membership. Why pay money, get dressed up just in case your treadmill is in front of the cute guy or girl, and drive to another location when you live with the best trainer in the world? Here are eight ways my dog and those I dog sit keep me fit. They can work for you, too! 1.

  • We Chat With People Who Raise Puppies to Be Guide Dogs for the Blind

    29 Jan 2015 | 6:00 am
    As a blind guy, I am thankful for my guide dog, Nash, and for everyone who made it possible for us to be together. It occurred to me that the people who start our guide dogs on their journey really do not get enough credit. I am not sure what we in the blind community would do without the selfless volunteers who take these infant pups into their homes, train them, love them, and then somehow manage to let these little miracles leave their lives. I spoke to a few puppy raisers to learn more about their work and what made them decide to get involved. Share this image I interviewed Eddie…
  • Can the Scorpion Scooper Handle Saint Bernard Poop? Monkey's Person Finds Out!

    29 Jan 2015 | 4:00 am
    First things first. There's simply no way to review a product that picks up dog poop without first discussing, well, my dog's poop. To be specific, my 140-pound Saint Bernard's poop. There's no cute way to say it; the truth is: Monkey's poop is a real situation. No, it does not require me to carry around a shovel, as stranger after stranger loves to suggest, but picking it up does require my tiny hand to use a stacking technique (which I've perfected unless he starts pulling and then ... oh goodness), and I do use a bag that's slightly thicker than your average poop bag. AND OKAY,…

  • The Fur, Feathers, and Scales of Justice: Scoring the Highs and Lows of Attorneys General on Animal Protection

    Wayne Pacelle
    30 Jan 2015 | 2:58 pm
    Last week, Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring burnished his pro-animal record when he established an Animal Law unit in an attorney general’s office. The unit will serve as a resource for local law enforcement and state agencies on animal fighting and animal cruelty prosecutions, providing the expertise and firepower to bring those responsible for animal cruelty, suffering, and abuse to justice. For the unit’s first project, it’s partnering with The HSUS to reach out to Virginia pet stores as part of an effort to crack down on puppy mills. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman…
  • Exposing 'Kill Buyers' Who Feed the Horse Slaughter Pipeline

    Wayne Pacelle
    29 Jan 2015 | 1:17 pm
    Two high profile cases this month involving “kill buyers,” who buy horses at auction to send them to slaughter, have brought the bloody, predatory business of horse slaughter out into the light of day. They’ve also shown the kill buyer for what he truly is – the worst enemy of horses in the United States today. Horses destined for slaughter are dragged and whipped into trucks and endure long journeys without food, water, or rest. Many die or sustain injuries during transport.

  • GoDaddy Nixes Super Bowl Spot After Advocates Tell Company to GoSendYourAdtotheMoon

    28 Jan 2015 | 9:49 am
    On Tuesday, GoDaddy pulled an ad scheduled for Super Bowl Sunday broadcast after expressing surprise that the spot featuring an online puppy seller sparked such an immediate backlash in social media. The ad is just the latest false note on animal issues from GoDaddy, whose founder and former CEO famously flew halfway around the world to shoot a museum-full of African animals, then had the audacity to claim that he killed the elephant for the benefit of local villagers. It just so happened that the elephant was a large male with enormous tusks – the type of elephant prized as…

    Today, The HSUS and 21 other organizations – from the Detroit Zoo to the Center for Biological Diversity and the Wisconsin Federated Humane Societies to the Sault Sainte Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians – petitioned the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to downlist wolves from “endangered” to “threatened” status across most of their range in the lower 48 states. We took this action, along with so many other wolf-protection organizations, to maintain critical federal protections for the fragmented populations numbering just 5,000 or so wolves in the coterminous United States, and…

    Wayne Pacelle
    26 Jan 2015 | 12:18 pm
    Today’s editorial pages at the nation’s biggest newspapers are a tale of two starkly different worldviews. One, The New York Times, slams the hideous government-financed cruelties documented at the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center in Nebraska. The other, The Wall Street Journal, slams California voters and legislators for enacting modest animal welfare standards through Prop 2 and a closely related law restricting sales of eggs from hens in extreme confinement, and calls for the latter measure to be overturned. The Wall Street Journal stays silent on terrible animal abuses like the…

Firstly we will go through the main foodstuffs that are, or may be, dangerous for Dogs to eat.

It has been a very long struggle to get her to come out of her shell and the fact is that now you would not recognize her and her behaviour from what it once once. When we first brought Daisy home she was lifted out of the car a quivering wreck and then ran into the woods and hid. It took a lot of coaxing to get her in to the house. And it literally took years for her to really show that she was gaining in confidence. Now Daisy s a…

We here on November Hill have had a lot of rain this month and, while it doesn’t stop traffic the way snow does around here, the mud takes on a life of its own after weeks and weeks of it. It’s a chore keeping horses clean when everything around them is wet and clay-colored.

Or, when I’m worried about something and Max pulls off that perfectly silly antic that makes me forget my worries and laugh at his zaniness.

Not to be dressed up in costumes, treated like a baby, carried around in a hand bag or painted and groomed and dyed to look un-doglike.   2. To be treated like a dog (belly rubs).     3.

    Silvie Bordeaux invented this device when her dog, Muffin, went blind. She hopes it will be used for blind shelter dogs, who often are the first to be put down. She saw her dog bumping into walls and even falling down stairs and decided she had to do something to help. Now, thanks to this functional device, and other blind dogs can now move around safely … and in style! Bordeaux has patented her custom-design halos and sells them to other pet owners under the charming moniker, “Muffin’s Halo Guide For Blind Dogs.” The halos even come in several colors and designs.

    When you save a rescue puppy, you are saving its life. Many shelters have to put dogs to sleep because they can't afford to keep them. When you decide to take a rescue animal home with you, you are giving it a second chance in life. Many rescue dogs used to have owners, but their owners treated them poorly or abandoned them. Pets deserve better than that. You have a chance to make a real difference to an animal's life, and so you should take it.

From her scars, and shyness it appears that she was badly abused. She probably came from a household with multiple dogs, where she was in a lot of fights. She was rescued from the shelter in August, by one of the shelter volunteers, who already had another Malinois that had been rescued from the same shelter 4 years prior. Ashley is a very sweet and snuggly dog with her owner, but a bully with the other dog. Unfortunately, as…

    Dog Training the American Male is not the type of book I would normally feature. It’s a novel.

Differences between the way men and women think offered throughout the story may make you smile or shake your head in recognition, but it’s when the “surprise” of an untrained, saved-from-certain-death-at-animal-control German Shepherd enters the mix that you might find yourself laughing out…

    Sue McCabe
    15 Jan 2015 | 8:39 am
    Anthropomorphising animals isn’t a good idea and usually gets us into all kinds of trouble. Dogs are not furry babies. They are their own species, with a totally different set of day to day priorities & communication signals. However spending time with nieces, nephews and god-children over the years, I’m amazed that the toddler stage in kids has so many similarities with puppy development. Both in terms of how puppies explore the world and how we deal with the frustrations such interaction may bring, puppies and toddlers aren’t all that different at all.  Walking anywhere takes…

    We’ve all met people who can’t relax. People who have to be active, who need to be doing something all of the time. We’ve known folk who crave excitement, extreme sports. They bungee jump on Saturday, parachute from a plane on Sunday and take a holiday rock climbing a difficult cliff face as a challenge. These types of people could be described as adrenalin junkies.  Adrenalin is a chemical which rushes through our body when we’re excited, stressed or anxious. Adrenalin can make us feel good-that burn you get from a work out, or a run in the fresh air. So good in fact, that we can…

  • Pet Sitter Spotlight: Betheny Green of Paws Pet Care at Home

    Joshua Cary
    29 Jan 2015 | 4:40 am
    This is Day 3 of our 15-part Professional Pet Sitter Series. It certainly goes without saying that most pet professionals are kind, caring, and thoughtful people. The story that follows is from Betheny Green of Paws Pet Care at Home in Louisville, KY, and begins with a seemingly normal lunch with her teenage son. What transpired from that afternoon is so wildly inspiring that an entire community has been profoundly impacted by the ongoing acts of kindness. I’ve recently heard a quote that is relevant here and has stuck with me: “It’s not what you look at, it’s what you…

    28 Jan 2015 | 4:21 am
    This is Day 2 of our 15-part Professional Pet Sitter Series. On the surface, it may appear that our profession has us only forming strong bonds with the precious pets in our care. While this is certainly a fact, many in our industry develop strong and meaningful friendships with the human client, too. This is the case with today’s spotlight on Anthony Mucci, of Daily Dog Walkers and Pet Sitters in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Fair Warning: Have a box of tissues close by for this one. The Personal Side of Pet Sitting When I started my pet sitting business back in 2008, it was all about the…

This series will spotlight 15 Professional Pet Sitters and Their Stories in an effort to pull the curtain back on extraordinary jobs well done.

  • 15 Professional Pet Sitters Share their Favorite ‘Tales’ from the Past Year

    Joshua Cary
    26 Jan 2015 | 11:11 am
    Pet care professionals are an extraordinary bunch of individuals. Aside from the obvious love for all living creatures we share, the professional pet sitter must work all major holidays in order to give their appreciative clients the time away to spend with their own friends and families. Also, the professional pet care provider must create a strong, well balanced business to support the service they provide. In other words, the pet sitter must create, run and manage the day to day operations the very same way as all other local small business providers. This is sometimes missed or overlooked…

    A little more than a year ago, Rod and I reached a turning point. Up until that point, we believed that traveling full-time would be a temporary thing – something we’d do until we found the perfect spot to settle down again. But somewhere along the way, things changed. “Settling down” wasn’t a goal anymore – in fact, it sounded down-right awful! We love traveling too much to give it up, so we decided to trade in our smaller motorhome and get one that would give all of us a little more space. The new coach, the old RV and our tow vehicle After spending 3…

    About one year after I graduated vet school, I took routine screening chest radiographs of my senior Golden, Mulan. I looked them over, frowning at a small, mottled spot near her sternum. “She has cancer,” I thought. It’s not an unreasonable conclusion to come to with Golden Retrievers. Before I panicked, I asked my colleague to look at the x-ray, and she agreed it looked suspicious. I was devastated. I took Mulan to the local specialty hospital, where an intern I knew from vet school patted me on the back while the resident internal medicine specialist pursed his lips…

  • Separation Anxiety: I Gave Up My Dog (Part 2)

    Rebecca Braglio
    11 Jan 2015 | 8:21 am
    If you have a dog with separation anxiety, you know how expensive it can be. Whether it’s replacing destroyed furniture or getting medical treatment for self-mutilation, it quickly adds up. As an employed attorney, I was fortunate to be in a position to try every means available to get Dash’s separation anxiety under control. I refused to give up my dog. I contacted the breeder, who suggested I get another dog – after all, Dash had gone from being with four other dogs on a daily basis to being in my apartment, all alone, up to eight hours every day. I actually considered it and…
  • Separation Anxiety: Why I Gave Up My Dog

    Rebecca Braglio
    2 Jan 2015 | 1:42 pm
    I recently received an email from a reader who stumbled upon ThePhillyDog after searching for information on “separation anxiety.” If you’re a long-time reader, you probably know that my dog Dash’s own separation anxiety issues  partly inspired the creation of this site. I’ve blogged about our battles along the way, the progress he’s made, the steps back that he’s taken. And, despite having made a lot of progress, I gave up my dog. Dash permanently lives with my parents who are retired and home full-time. If you’ve ever had a dog that suffers from true separation anxiety, you…

  • Relationship & Motivation in Dog Training

    Michaela Greif
    28 Dec 2014 | 9:48 am
    Sponsored post by Michaela Greif, CPDT-KA, Opportunity Barks Behavior & Training Shaping your new dog into a well-behaved pet begins with relationship-building and continues with training.  But what does it actually meant to build a relationship with your dog (the dog biscuits and daily massage therapy doesn’t cut it)?  Well, your relationship with your dog is based on whether your dog trusts your guidance and whether you can understand and communicate with one another. With a strong relationship, teaching your dog new behaviors and motivating him to do them is much more fun! What’s…

  • Lots Of Christmas Puppies This Season?

    Clint Cora
    8 Jan 2015 | 8:57 am
    Christmas Puppies The sales of my indoor dog litterbox training program is pretty steady throughout the year but I noticed quite a significant surge in orders which started around mid December and continues to today.  I can’t help but wonder if this increase in sales has anything to do with lots of Christmas puppies this holiday season. I personally do not like the idea of Christmas puppies which usually involves parents giving into the demands or requests from kids to get a dog for Christmas.  In many cases, giving puppies as Christmas gifts do not involve a lot of prior research…

    One Year After Dog EPI Diagnosis Happy New Year to everyone!   On this New Year day of January 1, 2015, I can’t help but think about my Lhasa Apso dog Chester’s diagnosis of EPI (exocrine pancreatic inefficiency) a year ago.  Last January, he lost 35% of his body weight to a low of about 13 pounds.  He was showing his ribs at that time. We were just starting to see a vet specialist in internal medicine and going through expensive tests that cost about $1,600 to finally arrive at the diagnosis of EPI.  We started Chester’s lifelong EPI treatment centered around Pancrease…

    Puppies Can Try Dog Walks Recently, we had some owners of new young puppies who joined our Mississauga GTA Small Dogs Outings Meetup group.  Although I don’t recommend it for young puppies who are still quite shy to come out with our dog gang yet, it is possible to help integrate them slowly with our group dog walks. At our dog Meetup group, we do both visits to dog parks as well as dog walks.  I certainly do not recommend that these puppies are brought to dog parks especially if they can get scared by other dogs, especially energetic larger ones, approaching them unleashed.  This is…

    It’s really not a secret that, despite the fact that I have two cats, I’m really more of a dog person. I mean, I love my cats, but honestly, I have more fun with my dog. This might just be because I spend more time with my dog.   My cats apparently live an exhausting life and therefore must sleep all but two hours a day, and about a quarter of that time is spent either eating or begging for food. So that leaves all of about an hour to hang out with me, the woman who feeds them, keeps their litter boxes clean and in one of their cases, SAVED THEM FROM CERTAIN DEATH. How do…
  • 8 simple ways to improve your relationship with your pet

    28 Jan 2015 | 4:33 am
    It’s a new year, and many find themselves looking forward to a fresh start. This is a perfect time to consider these eight easy ways to change your relationship with your pet for the better.   Check your pet’s health records and make sure she’s up-to-date not only on vaccinations, but also on her annual or semi-annual exam. Regular physical exams set a baseline for healthy, young pets and twice a year exams can pick up potential trouble spots for older pets. What’s a better way to strengthen the bond with your pet than ensuring she lives as long as possible?

Her toy poodle, Godiva, a scoop of chocolate fur and ears, had lapped up an entire bottle after she dropped it. Her petite pooch was now acting strangely, staggering around my exam room and urinating excessively. As I…

If you’re a new reader to the blog, I’ll fill you in on the basics. Lester is a Treeing Walker Coonhound that I adopted from a senior rescue organization in my state. He’s old. He’s half blind.

  • 6 tips for helping pets that get queasy in the car

    16 Jan 2015 | 4:27 am
    I remember the day quite clearly, although it was over fifteen years ago. I had just adopted a dog—the first as an adult living on my own. She was about 3 months old and as cute as a button. As we headed out of the door of the SPCA to begin our lives together, the staff member who helped me called out, “Crack the windows on your way home—puppies tend to get car sick!”   It’s true—young animals (just like children) are more prone to the effects of motion sickness, but adult dogs and cats can certainly grace your backseat with their fair share of vomit,…

    28 Jan 2015 | 9:41 pm
    With Super Bowl fever in the air, one of the worst things that can happen to a football player who is headed for the big game is to be sidelined due to injury. Football is one of the most popular sports played by athletes of all ages, and it leads all other sports in the number of injuries sustained. Humans are not alone in their propensity to injury, whether competing in a stadium or a light game of touch football. Dogs, too, suffer injuries the same as or very similar to those of professional football players. Play by play, then, here are six football style injuries that dogs can get. Oh,…

This is the final blog post in this 5-part series about having a dog with irritable bowel disease (IBD). I look back over pages and pages of notes.

  • Is a rabbit an ‘easy option’ for pet owners?

    23 Jan 2015 | 8:35 am
    While rabbits are often perceived to be low-maintenance alternatives to cats and dogs, a happy rabbit actually needs the same level of care and attention as larger types of pet. So, while it can be tempting to rush into things and get a rabbit as a ‘starter pet’ for yourself or young family members, there are still plenty of things you need to consider. Here are just some of them… Rabbits still need plenty of space and exercise Although you won’t need to buy a lead and take your rabbit for a walk round the park each day, rabbits still need to be able to run, jump and dig – none of…
  • Petplan’s key points for responsible pet ownership

    15 Jan 2015 | 3:41 am
    Getting a pet can bring a lot of happiness to both you and your new cat, dog or any other furry friend you welcome into your home.   However, it’s also a serious commitment with many important duties to consider that may not be immediately apparent – responsible pet ownership consists of more than simply feeding and playing with your pet. Here are some things to bear in mind before and after you get a new pet… Choosing the right pet Firstly, you need to think about what kind of pet would be suitable for you and whether a pet is right for your home and lifestyle at all – for example,…

  • New Year’s resolutions: how your pet can help you keep yours!

    27 Dec 2014 | 2:00 am
    New Year’s resolutions – a lot of people make them, but not many people are able to keep them.

  • Older Cats – Skin, Hair And Nails

    Laurie Buckley
    31 Jan 2015 | 10:29 am
    As a cat ages, her skin will start to lose elasticity and become dry and thin making her more prone to irritation and infection. To the aging cat, lumps and bumps on and/or under the skin become more common. Her grooming habits will become less conscientious (many times due to other physical ailments such as obesity or arthritis), which results in odor, dandruff, hair matting (particularly in longer-haired cats), and other skin conditions. Her claws will often times become thicker, more brittle, and overgrown (often curling around and digging into the pad of her foot). As older cats have a…
  • Campylobacteriosis In Kittens

    Laurie Buckley
    19 Feb 2014 | 1:37 pm
    Campylobacteriosis is an infectious disease which causes acute infectious diarrhea in kittens. It may also be found in shelters and catteries, mainly in cats who are poor condition and already suffering from other intestinal infections. A kitten acquires the bacterium when she comes into contact with contaminated water, food, animal feces, or uncooked beef or poultry. The Campylobacter species is capable of surviving for a period of up to five weeks in either unpasteurized milk or water. The disease has an incubation period of one to seven days. Acute infection signs include watery diarrhea…

    Guest Post by Carly. I’ve been a cat owner for as long as I can remember. My brown tabby, Seymour, is seventeen years old and has basically grown up with me. So when his kidneys failed a few months ago, I was devastated. I didn’t know what the side effects would be, or how long he would have to live. The veterinarian didn’t make it sound good, to be honest. There were several times that I drove him to the vet’s office, the poor thing crying in his carry-case the whole way, thinking that today would be the day. But it’s been eight months since then, and Seymour’s doing okay. It…
  • What’s Wrong With My Cat’s Eyes: Feline Vestibular Syndrome

    Guest Posts
    12 Jul 2013 | 10:09 am
    Guest Post by Carolyn. One of the most curious health problems that plague our feline friends is called feline vestibular syndrome. Resulting from an off-kilter biological balance system, the cat starts to be unable to stay standing and continually falls over or go in circles. Additionally, cats become nauseous and their eyes start pulsating left-to-right as if they are seizing (or are possessed!). It’s an alarming scene to witness, but is (usually) not anything to be too concerned about. In most cases, feline vestibular syndrome happens for no reason at all and merely needs some sort of…
  • Steatitis (Yellow Fat Disease) In Cats

    Laurie Buckley
    20 May 2013 | 11:44 am
    Steatitis, or yellow fat disease, is caused by a deficiency of vitamin E. Cats who are fed a diet containing excessive amounts of unsaturated fats end up with vitamin E being destroyed in their bodies. This results in a painful inflammation in the cats body fat. The fat will turn yellow and harden greatly. A cat who eats sufficient quantities of red meat tuna will develop this extremely painful disease as it contains high levels of unsaturated fatty acids. If not properly supplemented with vitamin E an ongoing diet consisting of fish in general will lead to Steatitis. Cats should never be fed…

  • Getting Back Into the Swing of Things

    31 Jan 2015 | 3:25 pm
    So I hope to get back into blogging – but here’s a minor setback: You know it’s a problem when none of your browsers auto fill the name of your website when you start typing. To be honest, I feel a little of the same — disconnected. As I mentioned earlier, living with two CH cats is …normal for me. At first, when we adopted our cats, it was easy to come up with post topics. Everything was new. I had so many questions and wanted answers. Every day we would face challenges and find ways to overcome them. Or deal with them. Or, sometimes, cry through them. Over…

    Hi all – Long time no post. A dear friend reached out the other day, mentioning the lack of posts lately. I really appreciated it. It’s something I truly think about every day – including remembering all of you – however, due to all sorts of things, this blog has taken a back seat for a while. When the new year came and went, I toyed with the idea of resolving to post more often here. We’ll see how that pans out; perhaps this is a start. Anyway, I just wanted to write a quick post to say, yes, I’m still here and think about all of you often. It’s…
  • Remembering Shakey Puddin’ Pie and Her Endless Impact

    People say cats have nine lives. For some that’s certainly true, but it’s really just a saying, and those nine lives are always wrapped up in one lifetime. But sometimes one life can have the impact of nine lives — if not more. That’s why I wanted to post today. There’s a special cat you need to know about. Her name was Shakey Puddin’ Pie, and I’m so sorry to share that today she passed over Rainbow Bridge. Shakey was one of the most popular and important CH cats I’ll ever have known. She was the heart — the reason — behind all of…

I say they, because we actually took in both at once, and it worked out nicely. We went in with a game plan…

    29 Jan 2015 | 12:53 pm
    Some cat breeds, like the Himalayan or the Persian, require a great deal of commitment when it comes to keeping their coat healthy and shiny. If you’re thinking about a new feline companion, but want one that’s a little lighter on the grooming upkeep, you may want to consider one of the following breeds: 1. Siamese (pictured above): These short-haired kitties have a coat that is relatively easy to maintain. Use a stainless steel comb to remove any knots and extra fur on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. 2. Sphynx (left): These hairless cats obviously won’t require any brushing and you…
  • 5 Ways Adopting a Dog Can Better Your Life

But choosing to adopt a canine companion has a positive impact in many other ways as well. Below are five ways adopting a dog can change your life for the better: 1. A more positive outlook on life: It’s hard not to cheer up after a rough day when you come home to a wagging tail and slobbery kisses.

With the engine off, temperatures drop too low during the winter to leave your dog in the car. Leaving the engine on can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning, putting your pup’s life in danger.

The most common symptom is itchy skin accompanied by scratching, biting, and licking. Allergy testing or a special diet may be recommended.

VitaHound’s staff has developed various techniques over the years that help owners answer how are you feeling? The dog’s tongue can be the first-line diagnostic tool in keeping them healthy and is very easy way to monitor their well-being. Changes in its appearance provide clues that may warn of health problems, and prompt you to look further for a complete diagnosis. The normal color of healthy tongue should be a deep pink. When hot, the tongue will normally be red due to…

  • 8 Obvious Reasons Why Dogs Sit on Cats [With BONUS Video]

    Elizabeth Keene
    28 Jan 2015 | 11:39 am
    If you've lived dangerously* - as I have - perhaps you've witnessed it: a dog backing up to a cat and resting his entire backside (usually with tail in the upright position, thereby, fully exposing the butthole) directly over the cat's face. Or, if his aim is off (as my dogs' usually is, because they're corgis, and have limited clearance between their butts and the floor), on the flat part of the cat's side, as if sitting on a back-less futon.It's quite a sight to behold, actually. Not so much the act of sitting on the cat, but that, in many cases, the cat either a) seems to enjoy it, or b)…
  • 5 Ways My No-good, Broken Dishwasher Triggered a Happiness Windfall for My Dogs

    Elizabeth Keene
    21 Jan 2015 | 12:26 pm
    My dishwasher quit working earlier this month. Naturally, it outed its state of malfunction just after I'd carefully crammed in the last possible dirty dish.

  • Tacky Cardigan With Words on It, Squared: The Ugly Sweater Paradox (and photo fest)

    Elizabeth Keene
    5 Jan 2015 | 9:27 am
    paradox (noun): 3. Any person, thing or situation exhibiting an apparently contradictory nature. dictionary.comI bought this "ugly" holiday sweater with the words "Let It Snow" on it for Jon Farleigh.(Hint: That is why this post is a Tacky Cardigan squared. It's a "Tacky Cardigan" about an actual tacky cardigan. And, it has words on it. This achievement, to me, is like another person's completion of a half marathon. Not sure what the equivalent of a full marathon would be, perhaps this post. Anyway...)I guess - notwithstanding it's in the shape of a dog's torso (vs. human's), which…

    17 Dec 2014 | 8:20 am
    Preface: This blog is, to me, like a blank canvas is to an artist - except I use words, and not paint. Also, the artist in my example is an elephant, who uses her trunk to fling random colors in the general direction of the canvas. But it's still art - to her. There was that one day, though, when she (the elephant) didn't feel like using paint anymore, so she just stood there and grunted, while staring at her blank piece of paper. Days went by, with more grunting, and still no desire to fling paint. This would be a really sad story, except that on the 8th, or 78th day, she looked down and saw…
  • 10 (Previously Published) Reasons My Dogs Are Strange + One 'Scary-Spice' New One

    Elizabeth Keene
    9 Dec 2014 | 10:57 am
    Note: This post has nothing to do with Mel B.A few days ago, after posting on Facebook about how the dogs had been particularly barky that morning, a reader brought up in comments how her beloved dog, Nugget, had a few quirky barking habits of his own. One of those habits, she went on to say, even necessitates a psych ritual (as in she has to psych herself up for the impending bark fest) every time she uses the hair dryer. (yikes!) Post by The Chronicles of Cardigan.And so, I told her about how I can't open my spice drawer, without Jon Farleigh going ballistic and trying to "kill" all the…

    27 Jan 2015 | 5:49 am
    For Matteo Walch the Austrian Alps are alive with the sound of marmots. The boy from Innsbruck became acquainted with the creatures when he was just four years old when his family was on vacation. They have returned each year since so that Matteo can visit with the animals he loves. Don't call him a marmot whisperer though. Marmots are not as shy as they are made out to be. #pets #animals

    26 Jan 2015 | 6:02 am
    There are a lot of cat lovers out there who believe that they really spoil their cats rotten. They would be hard pressed to go further than Greg Krueger of St. James, Minnesota. He has spent the past 15 years continuously remodeling his house -- just for his cats. For most people this would seem to be an act of insanity. For Krueger it was more of an ingenious method of self-therapy. #pets #animals

  • Best Dog Walking Jacket To Keep You Dry [ Review ]

    30 Jan 2015 | 9:10 am
    Maggie If there’s one thing you can guarantee everyday, is that the dog has to go out! It doesn’t matter if it’s cool crisp and sunny or a wet and windy muddy day,  you’ve got a dog jumping at the door telling you to hurry and take them for their daily run.  And at this time of year, more often than not that also involves you getting wet! So a good quality waterproof jacket is a must-have item and the Berghaus Woman’s Bowfell Jacket does just the trick. Lucky for peep, we were able to road test a Gor-tex jacket by Berghaus  which is an excellent quality product…

    Maggie I must say that I love my collars and leads, they’re not just something that’s wrapped around my neck and attached to my peep when we go out. My collars are a little expression of me and my peep. The best thing about collars and leads is that they come in million of styles, shapes, colours not to mention all the different types of fabrications. How could a dog just have one? They compliment every event we do and are with us everywhere we go. Dog collars is something every dog wears everyday. But why do we find our collars so desirable? It’s partly because…

    26 Jan 2015 | 5:33 am
    Maggie I know with my peep it was the biggest question she asked herself all the time, “should I get a cat or a dog“. You see, my peep grew up in a house full of pets, dogs, cats and even an Iguana! She knew that when she had her own home a pet in the house was a must. Believe it or not, her first choice was getting a cat. I can’t fault her due to I wasn’t even born yet, and I understood why she chose a cat to share her home. At the time, she traveled and worked out of the home and didn’t have the extra time for taking care of a dog’s needs. However with a…

    14 Jan 2015 | 5:41 am
    Tracy Ahrens My first dog, a Brittany spaniel named Speckles, knew my routine when it came to daily activities. He always reacted specifically for each one. For example, I’d brush my teeth in the evening and he knew I was going to be heading to bed shortly after. He would stand in the bathroom doorway to see what I was doing and then walk slowly to his crate where he nested for the night. My cat Forest is like an alarm clock. He knows that when the sun starts to rise my alarm clock is about to ring. He will jump onto my bed and hop back and forth over my head while I’m sleeping. When that…

     Some rights reserved by Tambako the Jaguar Cats are not observed yawning that often; however, there are many individual cats that do this a lot. If your cat yawns at you, does this mean they find you boring? Well, that might be true, but the funny thing is that explanations for why cats yawn are not that different from the reasons why humans and several other animals yawn. Yawning is considered an involuntarily action. That is, the one yawning cannot help but yawn. Here is a list of possible reasons why scientists think that cats may yawn: Cats yawn to intake more air.

  • 4 early signs of diabetes you should be able to recognize in your dog

    Signe & Maris Munkevics
    20 Jan 2015 | 6:00 am
    The first visible sign is usually frequent urination and accidents. Diabetes has increased among dogs and cats over the last several decades. Some say it may simply be because pets live longer, giving them a greater chance to develop diabetes. However, it’s also hard not to notice that the lifestyles and diets of dogs have changed radically. Unfortunately, it’s not that straightforward, because no one can identify the true cause of diabetes mellitus in dogs. Some good news about diabetes is that the sooner it is noticed, the greater chances the patient has to live a normal life. Being…
  • What is false pregnancy in cats?

    Signe & Maris Munkevics
    16 Jan 2015 | 6:00 am
    Increased appetite is one of the most common signs of false pregnancy in cats. False pregnancy in cats, also known as pseudocyesis, is a state when some true pregnancy signs are present in a non-pregnant female cat. Most people have heard about false pregnancy in dogs, but a similar, though not as common, condition can occur in female cats. False pregnancy in cats occurs when a female cat ovulates but does not become pregnant. Unlike humans or dogs, cats do not ovulate in a cycle. Cats are known as induced ovulators, which means that they ovulate only after mechanical stimulation of the…

Hepatic lipidosis, also known by the name, fatty liver disease, is among the most common diseases in cats.

    I started to write this post in August, 2011 about a few losses we had had through the pet blogging community. I stopped writing it, because I felt like I couldn’t adequately discuss a matter I hadn’t experienced on the personal level that the blogger’s who lost their pets had, and that it might be insulting for me to post about it.

    26 Jul 2013 | 11:58 am
    Today’s guest post comes from Sara of Life in These Times, a fantastic blog about being a mother, a DIY-er, a wife, and a pet parent. Sara has been a co-worker of mine at two different Atlanta agencies, and I always love hearing about her daughter, Keelin, and her two Boston Terriers. Now, you get to hear about them too! I’ve always loved dogs. I’ve always wanted to be a mom. So, the likelihood that the titles of ‘pet owner’ and ‘mother’ would eventually cross paths was inevitable from the beginning. Now to follow with the ‘normal’ chain of events, I did the expected.

From the last year on this blog, you’ve seen me take a break for about a month or so here or there, but not like this; not a  complete and total blog siesta in No-Post Snoozeville.

    11 Mar 2013 | 5:21 am
    This morning, I woke up at 5:30 AM and could not get back to sleep. After a few minutes of tossing and turning, I finally gave up and surrendered myself to the mercy of the Macbook and the coffee pot and positioned myself near the window so as to enjoy the pending Atlanta sunrise. As I typed away, jotting down ideas for work, Life with Arie, and beyond, I became aware of a low, rhythmic sound coming from the living room. Steadily, the noise got louder, and louder, until it was clearly identifiable: Arie, my White German Shepherd, was snoring. I peeked into the living room, because Arie only…

I took a detour into the cul de sac of doom: Etsy.  When, with bleary eyes, I looked up, it was midnight and Fred had thoughtfully left me with all the dogs. We trudged with heavy feet up the stairs.  There was one light on in the bathroom.  The dogs fled into the darkness of the bedroom.  I began to put on my…

Whether you’re a “cat person” or not, it’s natural to observe a cat and wonder exactly what they’re thinking.  To celebrate this special day, Hannah has compiled a list of questions and answers about our feline friends.  Questions are the easy part; it’s the answers that are hard.  Afterall, cats are still a mystery to us, even after thousands of years of…

  • Eastern Painted Turtle Care: Keeping the USA’s Most Beautiful Turtle

    Frank Indiviglio
    28 Jan 2015 | 7:28 am
    Those of us who are accustomed to seeing Eastern Painted Turtles (Chrysemys scripta scripta) in the wild and captivity sometimes take their beauty for granted. In my youth, I was able to find them quite easily near my Bronx home, and was surprised by the overseas demand when I began working for a local animal dealer. But upon close inspection, it’s easy to see why these aptly-named turtles are wildly-popular in zoos and private collections worldwide. In addition to their brilliant coloration, Eastern Painted Turtles make hardy, long-lived and responsive pets (if given proper care!). They…

    The Dumeril’s or Brown Rough-Necked Monitor (Varanus dumerilii) is still collected from the wild, but captive breeding is increasing, and will, I hope, soon be the rule rather than the exception. Although the black and orange hatchlings are hard to resist, Dumeril ownership should not be entered into lightly. Strong and active, adults may top 4.5 feet in length, and are best reserved for those with adequate space and experience. That being said, Dumeril’s Monitors are reputed to be somewhat easier to handle than other similarly sized species. My own experience bears this out, but…

    Labradors are expressive creatures. When you share your life with a dog, you soon notice that they use their body language to convey their feelings. The better that we can read our dogs’ body language, the more chance we will have of correctly establishing what makes them happy. Let’s look at 1o ways to tell whether your Labrador is expressing their pleasure through their body language: 1.

When they are young and full of energy, it’s easy to ignore this feeling. But if they fall ill, or just get older, the reality becomes more prominent in our minds. Whilst death is sadly an inevitable part of life, this doesn’t mean that it isn’t devastating to lose someone. And it doesn’t matter if that someone has two legs or four legs, because a loss is still a loss. What Do We Do Next? When you have lost your dog, the aching…

  • Best Clumping Cat Litter

    Amy Greenwald
    14 Jan 2015 | 2:00 pm
    Updated January 14th, 2015 When you have a cat, litter is a fact of life. It becomes routine (for the owner as well as the cat), but all cat owners secretly long for a better way to deal with the litter box. Science understands, and continually tries to come up with new and better formulations. A few decades ago, clumping litter, also known as scoopable litter, came along and was the biggest breakthrough ever. With clumping litter, areas that get wet clump together, allowing you to scoop out everything, leaving a (relatively) clean pan that only needs to be completely changed a few times a…
  • FLV Feline Leukemia

    8 Jan 2015 | 6:57 am
    When it comes to illnesses that prove fatal to our beloved cats, Feline Leukemia Virus is top of the list. The only thing that kills more cats than this illness are accidents and trauma and FLV kills 85% of the cats that are persistently infected within three years of contracting the virus. It is doubly dangerous because it suppresses the immune system and this leads to cats also being vulnerable to deadly infections. The good news is that having FLV doesn’t have to mean death – around 70% of cats who get the virus can resist it or even get rid of it on their own. However the more we…
  • Cat Food Vs. Dog Food

    2 Jan 2015 | 11:56 am
    When it comes to feeding your cat or your dog, the temptation is to give them both the same. Cats and dogs are closely related and have similar dietary needs, right? Wrong. There are actually quite a lot of important difference in the dietary needs of the two types of animals and this stems from what they would have eaten in the wild. Biological differences Both cats and dogs are members of the Carnivora order of animals but of the two species, only cats are counted as ‘obligate carnivores’. This means that cats need to eat animal-derived protein to remain healthy or receive some sort of…

History of the breed The American Wirehair is a mutation of the American Shorthair that first randomly occurred in a litter of five born to a pair of normal barn cats in 1966 in Vemon, New York.  A single red and white male cat in the litter had wiry fur so the owner called in a local Rex breeder, Joan O’Shea…

    25 Oct 2014 | 5:37 am
    The American Bobtail is a breed of cat that developed in the late 1960’s.  Its name come from its stubby or ‘bobbed’ tail that is somewhere between one third and one half the normal length of a cat’s tail. Despite the similarity of name and physical type, the American Bobtail is not related to the Japanese Bobtail.  This is because both breeds suffer from a genetic mutation that leads to their small sized tail but it is a different mutation in each breed.  The mutation in the American Bobtail is similar to that which affects the Manx cat.

I hear from a lot of frustrated people who are having a difficult time teaching their dog a new behavior.  Especially a behavior that the dog has to want to do; like eye contact and focus, or putting his head down on command, or doing agility. Dogs that “shut down” are dogs that walk away, lay down, ignore their owners and show no desire to show a new or existing…

  • Biofeedback; Teaching Your Dog to Relax with Your Touch

    12 Jan 2015 | 1:17 pm
    I run a few different kinds of dog training programs here with The Dog Training Secret. One is our companion dog program which teaches more advanced obedience and working toward off leash goals.

And, I have learned through the years that teaching your dog to relax on command or simply with a small touch can be vital to your training program! It can help your dog learn to relax his body, and reduce his heart rate before he gets scared or aggressive; and that is crucial for people that have dogs…

    8 Jan 2015 | 7:27 am
    So I admit, once again, that I forget how difficult it is for new people to understand the canine “gap” when they haven’t had one in a long time or have never had one. I suppose it is not common knowledge to everyone, and once again I take for granted my 20+ years of training and knowledge when it comes to dogs. I think, NO, no, I KNOW I understand dogs much better than I understand people. So I “sing the song of my people” by writing articles and trying to help people understand more on canine learning and theory and even the basics. Because after all, everyone has to start…

  • How Do Birds Fall Asleep? The Answer Might Surprise You...

    30 Jan 2015 | 4:00 pm
    By Dr. Becker More than half of bird species are perching birds (known as passerines or songbirds). This includes about 5,500 species, including wrens, finches, sparrows, orioles, cardinals, starlings, and many others.   Part of what makes perching birds so fascinating is their ability to sing a song unique to their species. Some perching birds are born knowing their song while others actually learn them from their parents. Equally intriguing, however, is the makeup of a perching bird’s feet. Aside from having the ability to fly, having feet that can grasp onto branches, reeds, grasses…

According to a study published last year in the journal Genetics, domestication syndrome is a term Charles Darwin coined to describe his discovery that “domesticated mammals possess a distinctive and unusual suite of heritable traits not seen in their wild progenitors.”1 And domestication syndrome isn’t seen exclusively in mammals like dogs, rabbits, foxes, pigs, horses, or sheep.

    Jeremy Gosnell

    It’s long been touted that fish don’t feel pain. Aquarists may argue this point on both sides of the line. Some may believe that fish feel an entire array of emotions, while others would assume that physical responses to stimulus are autonomic, taking place without any subjective “feeling” driving them. As we move through the 21st century animal behavior science is gaining new traction. As stewards of a variety of our animal kingdom cousins, scientists believe it’s vital that we understand the conscious capacity within them, in an effort to understand how to better create a…

  • Help Overweight Cats with Healthy Dieting

    28 Jan 2015 | 9:00 pm
    No one likes hearing their cat is fat. One of the things I learned recently while in a room full of veterinarians is that they dread having to tell you that your cat is overweight, too. But cat obesity is on the rise. A 1970s study found 6.5 – 12% of cats were overweight, while more recent studies report 40 to as many as 67% of cats are tipping the scales farther than they should. No wonder vets dread having to tell you your cat is overweight. They’ve had to deliver that news far too often recently. Cats are considered overweight when they are more than 10-20% over their ideal…

Big cats who live in dense habitats like trees that cast fragmented shadows on them are likely to have irregular or complex patterns that blend in with the shadows of the branches moving above them. And little cats like me who live where the light and shadows are more likely to be elongated… well, I blend right in, don’t I? I hope so. I would hate for Newton to find me and interrupt my nap.

If you have an alpha dog, you might wonder what days will be like for your pup and his new pals when spending time at dog daycare. First how do you even know if you have an alpha dog? People tend to think of dominant, alpha and aggressive dogs are the same, when in fact they are very different. A dominant dog craves power and respect from others or wants to be recognized as the alpha. This dog likes to test test boundaries and can be difficult to control. An aggressive dog has intent on hurting other dogs or people.
