    A couple was taking an evening stroll along the Winnebago River in Mason City, Iowa, when they noticed a man on the North Kentucky Avenue bridge as he dropped a duffel bag into the river. It was such a strange sight that they just had to find out what he was disposing of. They fished the bag out of the water and were shocked to realize that the bag was moving and making noise. #pets #animals

    Chihuahuas are known for being a really small breed, but one from Poland may have outdone them all. At 2.75 inches tall and weighing in at 10.5 ounces, the three-month-old Toudi may qualify as the world's smallest dog of any breed. Share this image Image from Toudi's Facebook Page Toudi hasn't been officially declared the world's smallest dog, but his owners are trying to get Guinness World Records to recognize his status. It's true that Toudi is still a pup and may have some growing to do, but he's significantly smaller than his siblings in the same litter, so in all likelihood, he's going…

    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.

My owners couldn't have me anymore because we can't have dogs were [sic] we live." Share this image Photo via Urgent Pups of Riverside County Facebook page. Nobody took him. Of course they didn't -- the plan was rotten to begin with.

    My vet loves me for who I am. Like bloggers, veterinarians are often misunderstood. People believe they make millions by charging high prices. Or, that they don't really care about pets, they only practice their particular field of medicine because it makes them rich. Or, that the expensive equipment in their offices, to do surgery, take X-rays and MRIs, etc, was discounted for them because the manufacture wanted them to buy it. People would be so wrong.

    There are only 4,880 black rhinos left in the world, and they are critically endangered. Photo by Bob Koons/The HSUSYesterday, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife made two important announcements about trophy hunting. The good news is that the Service extended a ban on imports of sport-hunted elephant trophies from Zimbabwe, where an autocratic ruler has made a mess of the resource-rich nation’s wildlife management program. Extending the ban is the right move, not only because the wildlife programs of several nations with elephants are weak, but also because of the larger poaching crisis that…

    It is estimated between 26 and 73 million sharks are killed every year for their fins. Photo by EastShark finning, as is customarily done, requires that a fishermen haul a shark from the ocean, slice its fin off, and then throw the rest of the shark – often still alive – back into the ocean. This leaves the shark not only with gaping, mortal wounds, but also with no ability to swim. The creature is doomed, and the death a lingering one. It is estimated that fishermen kill between 26 and 73 million sharks every year for their fins, which are the central ingredient in shark fin soup. This…

    The Sparrow Fund exists to help animals in need, like Phoenix, a five-month-old husky puppy who was found on fire in a dumpster. Clayton Van Wert was throwing out trash at a dump site on the edge of the Red Lake Indian Reservation in Minnesota last month when he heard whimpering and banging coming from a burning dumpster nearby. “I looked in and I could see this figure of a dog that was coming through the flames,” said Van Wert. He reached into the flames and pulled the still kicking puppy, a 5-month-old husky mix, out of the ashes. “All of his fur that was stuck to his body resembled a…

    Wiggy just 3-4 weeks old the first day with Mum.  Today is a very special day! Today Wiggy (aka Ludwig) is 20 years old. Can you believe it? That's 97 in human years. Back in 1995, Mum adopted Wiggy from the Southside Animal Shelter through an adoption event at Petco. That's the same shelter where I came from!

And it sure didn't disappoint. Sunday morning, we headed down the mountain, gingerly. Our gravel road Click on the post title to continue reading. And visit my blog to read more! Woofs!

    Dear Most Esteemed and Knowledgeable Kitties: I have a male Bombay kitten that I’m crazy over. I spoil him rotten. I get worried when I’m not home, as I am always with him. He is 7 weeks old now. How can I assure he doesn’t freak out when I go to my doctor appointments and leave him alone? He already has a huge cat tower and toys.  Photo CC-BY Jennifer C. ~ Maria Siouxsie: Well, Maria, it depends a lot on how long you’re away from home.

I’ve noticed that when she goes to the litter box, she doesn’t squat her butt all the way down when she pees, so she often misses the box. She aims for the edge and she just plain misses. I’ve tried boxes with a higher lid, but then she aims her butt just slightly over it. I’ve gotten a litter box that is completely covered and it gives her plenty of room to walk in and turn around to her liking, and she doesn’t seem…

    I don’t know about you, but when I bring a new animal being into the Roper household, my childish-make-believe-hope is that we will live together forever and ever, in an eternity of bliss, harmony and happiness. But that’s not so, it can’t be, because we all have limited time spans in our life here on Mother Earth. Fact of life: we will most probably outlive the majority, if not all, of our animal pals.

  • There’s More to Animal Communication Than Animal Communication

    Janet Roper
    25 Mar 2015 | 9:38 am
    Or perhaps it’s more correct to say there’s less to the process of animal communication that what we’ve been taught. When I first started studying animal communication, I was taught that folks who talked to animals had a special talent and that not everyone was capable of making that intuitive connection. It was implied that only the few, the privileged, the gifted, have what it takes to connect with and understand another species. Because that’s what I was taught, I believed it; and because I believed it, that’s what I experienced. I believed I couldn’t…

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing in both humans and animals. As a matter of fact, animals are often more open to receiving it than humans. Part of the curriculum for the Second Degree is to work with animals. My heart was singing!

Frankly, I’m stymied about it – there feels like there’s a large part missing in the ‘For All’. At face value, it seems like it *should* be as simple as just caring for the animals and making sure they live a good, safe,  secure and respected life, but I have a feeling there’s more to it than that. Because we humans are animals, too. In social media, someone…
  • Adopting Winkie the Elephant

    Meet Winkie, the newest ‘member’ in the Roper household! She’s a dainty lass, just a tad over 8 feet tall and weighing in at a svelte 8,400 pounds. Winkie resides at the Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee, and as you can see in the pic she is a very brave and trusting soul. This is her first time in the Big Pond, a mud bottom pond. Her favorite food is potatoes, which I rather like too. So what’s the back story on me ‘adopting’ Winkie? I wish I could tell you.

    High volume spay and neuter clinics like this one require up to 75 volunteers at each event. The effort to care for community cats now has a powerful new tool to help reduce cat overpopulation and improve the lives of the tens of millions of unowned cats in the United States. Dr. Julie Levy, director of the Maddie’s Shelter Medicine Program at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine in Gainesville, Fla. founded Operation Catnip in 1998.

    Guest post by the Staff Cats have a reputation for being low maintenance and for not being too concerned when their human staff is out of town. They may not admit it and they may put on the “Oh? You were gone? I didn’t even notice” attitude when you get home, but the truth is, most cats do get lonely and anxious when their people are away. Our family has been in situations where we’ve lived in new cities where we didn’t know anyone….and one of our biggest sources of angst was who would watch Romeo and Pugsley if we needed to leave town.

    Catnip is a great thing. But it’s often misunderstood…..like many people don’t realize that not all cats love catnip. I do…but my compadre the Pugman does not. *Shrug* The staff wrote this article about the different kinds of catnip users that definitely describes those who partake in the nip. But then we found this great infographic that I thought was quite thorough in its explanation of what catnip is and the ins and outs of usage. Bottom line: Catnip = good stuff. We like it. Or, at least 50% of us do.

    Jubilee my horse & her trainer Jeff Ohaco working on sending into the trailer. Today Jeff and I were talking about animal training and creating a bond based on respect verses fear. Jubilee interjected and said, “I am thinking about what you are talking about and I have something to add. When a trainer had instilled fear in me, I felt a deep pain in my chest and throat, but when a trainer asks for respect I think, ‘oh shit I better find a different way.” She is one smart Appy!

I am alive now. I know it is important to ask for help. Do you know you can request help for others and others will be helped too? It is important to believe this, because if you do, your life will be easier. You also have to say ‘Thank you’ a lot. When you are grateful, those spirits get a burst of refreshing energy.

  • Why Don’t We Adequately Socialize Young Puppies With People?

    Dr. Ian Dunbar
    18 Mar 2015 | 9:13 am
    Dogs may be taught manners and basic obedience at anytime in their lives. However, training puppies is just so much fun and so, why wait? Similarly, behavior problems may be resolved at any time in a dog’s life but of course, they are annoying and frustrating for owners and so, why not teach good habits from the outset? Temperament problems, however, must be prevented during early puppyhood because rehabilitating adult dogs is complicated and extremely time-consuming. For example, whereas It takes just a few days, or a week at the most, to resolve incipient signs of shyness, fearfulness,...
  • 5 Ways My Puppy Reminds Me Of a Toddler.

    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…

  • Lurcher

    Mamairis
    22 Mar 2015 | 4:02 am
    Mamairis: '''What is the origin of the Lurcher?''' The Lurcher type of dog can trace its origins to the Romanichals (gypsies) of Ireland and Great Britain. It is a sighthound crossed with another breed of dog depending on which traits a breeder is looking for. Collie and Terrier crosses are common. In the U.S. crosses with scenthounds are more popular. The belief is that from the 14th to the 16th centuries, commoners were not allowed to own sighthounds. Poachers decided to create an intelligent, cunning dog with the use of sighthounds as the major contributor resulting in a clever and speedy…
  • SSR to Assess Heart Health in Pets

    Mamairis
    18 Mar 2015 | 4:05 am
    Mamairis: SSR or Sleeping Respiratory Rate is a valuable tool in assessing heart health in pets, particularly left side congestive heart failure (CHF). It is important to determine if CHF is present as medications are sometimes initially recommended for other cardiac diseases such as dilated cardiomyopathy, degenerative valve disease and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Measuring SSR is conducted when the pet is sleep. Room temperature should be moderate, not too hot or too cold. In order to establish a pattern, monitoring should be done under the same conditions for 2-3 days and then continued…
  • Are Cats Really Domesticated

    Mamairis
    16 Mar 2015 | 2:24 am
    Mamairis: A recent study conducted at the Washington University School of Medicine Genome Institute in St. Louis, Missouri found that cats may only be semi-domesticated. Scientists have discovered in researching the domestic cat's genome (the complete set of genes or genetic material present in a cell or organism; a complete set of DNA with all its genes) that they still possess many of their wild cousins' traits such as their method of hunting, digestion and more, even after living with humans for about 9,000 years. Of course this is a relatively short time compared to dogs' relationship…
  • Addtional Toxic Dangers to Pets

    Mamairis

    Mamairis: If your dog is anything like one of mine, there is no limit as to what goes in their mouths. Murphy has even been known to eat poop, but she finally gave up that disgusting (to we humans) habit with a little help from me. Playing or ingesting dangerous articles is not limited to dogs - cats and other pets are also at risk. While manufacturers create products to make our lives easier, some can pose a danger to our pets. They come in attractive, size-right containers and often smell good to our pets. Laundry and dish detergent pods or capsules are in that category. Because of their…

    Mamairis: '''What is the origin of the Braque Francais?''' The Braque Francais or French Pointing Dog is a very old breed and has been known since the 15th century. Nineteenth century researchers discovered that there are 2 varieties of the breed - the Gascogne type which is the larger and the Pyrenees type. '''What does the Braque Francais look like?''' Both types of the breed are medium to large size. Height for Gascognes is 23-27 inches for males, 22-27 inches for females. Height for the Pyrenees type is 19-23 inches for males, 19-22 inches for females. The Pyrenees weigh about 35-55 lbs.

Consider these stats from the CDC’s first-ever survey of the veterinary population: 1 in 6 have considered suicide; 25% of men and 37% of women in the profession report depressive episodes; 1.1% of men and 1.4% of women have attempted suicide; That last stat is the only one where vets figure in below the national mean, but before you cheer consider this: it’s because more…

    1692 In the early days of the Puritan settlements, colonial Massachusetts was gripped by fear. Between the British and French warring over colonial dominance, smallpox, and potential attacks from Native American tribes, the residents of Salem Village lived in a constant state of anxiety and worry for their safety. In addition to these real concerns, an overlying and persistent worry that some people possessed supernatural powers tickled away in their psyche.

Even the good stuff. Especially the good stuff, which is often hidden in bad stuff. When I go to a house for a euthanasia, people invariably say one of two things: 1. This must be so hard. 2. I wish we had this for people. The answer to both is “I agree.” The interesting part is that they co-exist. Lots of things we deal with in life are rotten: losing an eyeball, I imagine, would be…

  • Pets Teach Us So Much Radio 157 with Robbin and Joseph Everett

    When an animal related radio show goes to Cannes and the dogs, you know it’s a good week. Huge show Thursday, March 19!  We speak with Director and Co-writter of the award winning movie, White God, Kornel Mundruczo. Winner of the Prize Un Certain Regard Award at this year’s Cannes Festival, Kornel Mundruczo’s newest film is a story of the indignities visited upon animals by their supposed “human superiors,” but it’s also an brutal, beautiful metaphor for the political and cultural tensions sweeping contemporary Europe. When young Lili is forced to give…

      Dogs can’t read, so we have to. Photo: DepositPhoto/Amaviael   A brand recently contacted me about a possible review on Keep the Tail Wagging. Before accepting a review, I always check the ingredients to make sure the product is a good fit for my audience. When I visited this brand’s site, I was appalled by the ingredients. The site gave the impression that they created natural dog supplements, but the ingredients list wasn’t very natural and definitely not a good fit for my blog or our dogs. How to Read the Ingredients in Dog Food and Supplements I’m not…

    A typical example of the Z-59 Chair Dog series (brown) manufactured by Chrysler from 1998-2012 before losing the license to an aggressive brand expansion by LG. The Z-59 series was optimized for travel and storage beneath most standard-height indoor/outdoor chairs, but the energy:mass ratio that resulted from its small size produced a vibration fault in its power plant that would never be fully eliminated; most Z-59 owners resorted to after-market solutions (seen here) to correct or minimize fluctuations.(dog 718)

    Chloe and I had some experience with La Quinta and Drury hotels when we began our cross-country road trip (here’s my post about the La Quinta near O’Hare, and here’s one about the Drury Hotel near the Nashville airport), but we had a lot more when we ended, and it was all good. The big road trip of February/March 2015, in pink Post-It notes As you know from previous posts, we recently drove from Tampa to Seattle along the southern and western edges of the United States.

  • Arizona’s Saguaro National Park with a dog: Workable and gorgeous

    Mary-Alice
    25 Mar 2015 | 3:16 pm
    Left to my own devices, I would have skipped Tucson’s Saguaro National Park. “Saguaros,” I would have said to myself, “I’ve seen ‘em” — and I have, on the drive from Phoenix to Sedona, and lovely they are. Also, I would have added, with Chloe along a national park will be largely off limits. How wrong I would have been! And how lucky I am, in so many ways, that illustrator Chandler O’Leary was guiding the Good Ship Dodge-Chrysler Minivan across the country, and that she is a devoted fan of national parks. The fact is, there is plenty for a…

Reader Jenna had brought the cruises to my attention, and last fall she and Tara, her French Bulldog, went on one. I met Jenna and Tara in person in October 2013, when they hosted me and Chloe for breakfast in Paris — which was just as elegant as it sounds. Jenna writes a wonderful Facebook page about their travels, and kindly agreed to contribute this post to Dog Jaunt.

  • Two dog-friendly hotels with vintage charm in the Texas hinterland

    Mary-Alice

    Actually, “hinterland” might be an understatement. Chloe and I and our friend Chandler recently drove from Tampa to Seattle the long way, via Palm Springs, a route that includes the entire width of Texas. Day 14 in Texas (I exaggerate, but not by much) took us from San Antonio nearly to El Paso, and for most of that day we were so far behind the back of beyond that our phones just gave up. The situation (please note that I don’t call it a “problem,” because heavens, that part of Texas is really lovely) was compounded by the fact that we chose to detour to…
  • Which seat works best with an in-cabin dog? [Virgin America A-319]

    Mary-Alice
    17 Mar 2015 | 5:37 pm
    We fly on Virgin America several times a year, but always, to date, on one of their Airbus 320 planes, never on an A-319. In fact, I’d concluded they only had A-320s, so my tape measure was well of out reach when I saw the A-319 emergency card. Here’s what I used as an alternative, which proves that where there’s a will, there’s a way: That middle hieroglyphic, for example, means that the middle seat space was 2 card-widths wide PLUS up to that bold line (nope, x-ed out, actually the bold line NEXT to it). I’ve had resourceful readers tell me how many of their…

    Sharon Castellanos
    26 Mar 2015 | 2:30 pm
    There are few people in animal welfare I admire more than this guy, Richard Avanzino. When I first started writing about dogs after adopting my first dog from the San Francisco SPCA, I learned about a man who fought for the life of a little dog named Sido. As the President of the SF/SPCA in 1979, Rich stood firmly against the current California law that allowed someone to “destroy an animal like a piece of furniture." Thanks in part to his efforts, the law was changed and Sido was given a second chance. "San Francisco Superior Court Judge Jay Pfotenhauer ruled that the right…

    Sharon Castellanos

    It has been such a gift to have a dog grow old with me. Adopting her as an adult made our experiences interesting, and after our years together, I'm convinced that senior dogs rule.  Spending time together I learned about her likes and dislikes. We discovered her favorite, over-the-moon, reward. Hint, liver or sardines, in either order, or even better, together.   Living with my first old dog had me experiencing life in a new and unexpected way, giving me a point of view that helped me better understand my aging parents. Our life was never dull and I loved every minute we had…

    Christopher
    24 Mar 2015 | 2:06 am
    Celeste nurturing Maximus. He’s a dog because of his nature. He’s a Border Collie because of his nature. He herds things, chases things, is highly attentive to humans and stock because of his nature. What makes him behave like a BC is not different from what makes him look like one. One of the most pernicious mantras in the dog world is “It’s all in how you train them!” Let’s pretend for a moment that this statement is true.  What other closely held dog beliefs and behaviors would we have to question?  Pretty much all of dogdom, frankly.

  • Shelters kill. So why call them Shelters?

Here’s Gemma being cute. shel·ter noun 1. a place giving protection from bad weather or danger. 2. a place providing food and accommodation for the homeless. 3. an animal sanctuary. 4. a shielded condition; protection. Shelters kill dogs and cats. So why do we call them shelters when they don’t offer actual shelter?

  • Dog Culture is Religion and Politics

    Christopher
    24 Nov 2014 | 8:09 am
    Enough dogma, throw the disc. It’s an often reiterated rule of etiquette to never discuss religion or politics in polite company.  And this is why etiquette is for pussies. See, “religion and politics” are essentially stand-ins for weltanschuuang – a larger world view that incorporates philosophy, values, and ethics.  The big IMPORTANT things in life unless you’ve tuned out and decided to just get by and let other people do your heavy lifting for you. The dog world is inherently religious and political and thus any meaningful discussion of the culture is bound…

    The small elite group of conformation breeders are Platonists; they believe that the substantive reality of Border Collies is only a reflection of a higher truth, and their activity is the key to divining that perfect essence. The small elite group of trial breeders also believes that there is a higher truth to the Border Collie, that their activity is the key to approaching that truth, and that their philosophy stands above and to the exclusion of all others. But they are not Platonists, as their search is accomplished on a field, not in the mind. The ideal Border Collie is discerned by…

The tips of her ears fell off, as did her tail. The doctors and staff at the ASPCA took excellent care of her, slathering burn cream on her wounds and tending to her medical needs. I vowed, if she survived this ordeal, that I would take her home and make sure the remainder of her life was completely trauma free.I kept my word. The little diva, who I dubbed “Crispy”, turned out to be the most…

    In my feline-only veterinary practice, not a day goes by without a client asking me what is the best diet for their healthy cat.  These days, it is becoming more difficult to answer this seemingly simple question. Many people feel that cats should be fed canned food only, and that dry food is terrible for their cat. Other people feel that the composition of the food is much more important than the form (canned vs. dry) and insist that low carbohydrate (“grain-free”) diets are the only ones suitable for true carnivores like the cat.  Still others shun all commercial diets and are…

    One of the best things about being a veterinarian and writer is that I often get to cross paths with very cool people.  And there is probably no one cooler than my friend and colleague Arden Moore.  The supremely talented Ms. Moore takes multitasking to an entirely new level.  She is a radio show host, podcaster, dog and cat behavior consultant, editor, speaker, entertainer, educator, and pet first-aid instructor.   Let’s not forget author extraordinaire.  She has written many many books, including The Cat Behavior Answer Book; Happy Cat, Happy You; The Kitten…

    Coldest Winter For Ontario Dogs It’s been announced that we just had the coldest February here in Ontario, Canada on record and there wasn’t a single day last month when the temperatures went above zero Celcius.  Needless to say, it’s been the coldest winter for our Ontario dogs.  Now in mid March, the temperatures have finally warmed up. My Lhasa Apsos Chester and Roxie got on their Muttluks dog boots only a few times this winter on dog walks to the park.  Most days were just too cold and windy to make even a short dog walk comfortable.  So instead of our typical on…

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…

    There are few people in animal welfare I admire more than this guy, Richard Avanzino. When I first started writing about dogs after adopting my first dog from the San Francisco SPCA, I learned about a man who fought for the life of a little dog named Sido. As the President of the SF/SPCA in 1979, Rich stood firmly against the current California law that allowed someone to “destroy an animal like a piece of furniture." Thanks in part to his efforts, the law was changed and Sido was given a second chance. "San Francisco Superior Court Judge Jay Pfotenhauer ruled that the right…

We discovered her favorite, over-the-moon, reward. Hint, liver or sardines, in either order, or even better, together.   Living with my first old dog had me experiencing life in a new and unexpected way, giving me a point of view that helped me better understand my aging parents.

Christmas time requires a festive holiday collar, spring demands some pastels, summer would be incomplete without flip-flops and beach pails. Valentine’s Day is no different, perhaps even more important, as Dash is on the prowl for a girlfriend. Which is why, when Up Country reached out to see if I’d be willing to review a collar, I gave a resounding yes.

  • 6 ways to keep your indoor cat safe and happy

    26 Mar 2015 | 2:56 am
    A few weeks ago, I was awakened by a panicked text from my neighbor—her cat, Zipporah, had slipped out the front door unnoticed the night before and was missing. Now, in many situations, this wouldn’t be a super big deal. We live on a quiet cul-de-sac with very little traffic and no real predators. BUT, my neighbor’s cat is 15 years old and she’s a tiny little thing—and newly diagnosed with hyperthyroidism to boot. And have I mentioned how bitterly cold it’s been lately?   Whenever a pet is lost, my first question is: are they microchipped? This…
  • could deadly black widow spiders be lurking in your house?

    25 Mar 2015 | 6:04 am
    As a veterinarian, I love animals. I love all living creatures, actually, even down to the tiniest ant (except fleas and ticks—I really hate those!). Every so often, I find myself in an insect moral showdown. Last summer, it was with the wasp nests on my porch—on one hand, I feel terribly guilty killing them and ruining all of their hard work (after all, it takes ages to build those nests!), and on the other hand, I know that they could cause harm to me or my children (both two and four-legged). Should I kill the wasps just for the potential harm they may cause us?   Well,…
  • why your dog might have a limp tail after swimming

    19 Mar 2015 | 7:43 am
    The other day I received a note from a reader about an unusual and perplexing condition in her dog. She wrote that she lived in southwestern Florida and had recently taken her dog and foster pup for an ocean swim. Although the water was cold, it was a warm Florida day and there was no denying her dog a dip. Her two dogs prefer to play roughly and were having a grand old time frolicking in the surf and sand, totally ignoring the fact the calendar read “March.” This was the “Land of Sunshine,” after all.   The next day the owner discovered her dog’s tail…

The duration of symptoms as well as their severity can vary from dog to dog, as does their response to treatment, making chronic GI problems frustrating for pet owners as well as…

    16 Mar 2015 | 8:54 am
    An estimated 3 to 4 million pets are adopted from shelters each year*, but despite the great work of our shelters nationwide, these pets still face misconceptions about their health and characteristics. For example, contrary to popular belief, pets adopted from shelters are less likely to need an unexpected trip to the vet! Find out why (and consider giving a shelter pet a second chance!) as we debunk these other common shelter pet myths:   Myth: Shelter pets are more prone to health problems.

    Can you really trust a veterinarian when it comes to providing your dog with food? The dilemma crossed my path many years ago when a friend’s dog was diagnosed with irritable bowel disease. The dog, an active and energetic then 6-year-old mixed breed had a history of vomiting and diarrhea, particularly within hours of eating. Only after trial and error, changing foods, and experimenting with what did and did not work, the dog ended up at a veterinary clinic with a diagnosis of irritable bowel disease (IBD). “Carol, should I really give my dog a food that the vet says I can only get from…

    VetDepot
    27 Mar 2015 | 9:45 am
    Many families will soon be enjoying Easter egg hunts and celebrations. While these festivities can be a lot of fun, it’s important to protect pets from the following Easter hazards: 1. Easter lilies: These springtime flowers may be beautiful, but they’re also highly toxic to cats. All parts of the plant (including the petals, leaves, stem, and pollen) pose a danger to felines and can cause kidney failure. Symptoms of poisoning are typically apparent within 12 hours and include lethargy, vomiting, loss of appetite, disorientation, and seizures. If you suspect ingestion, immediately contact…
  • How to Protect Pets from Rattlesnake Bites

    VetDepot
    26 Mar 2015 | 11:50 am
    In the United States, approximately 15,000 dogs and cats are bitten by venomous snakes each year. Rattlesnakes account for many of these cases, so it’s important for pet parents to be educated about prevention and emergency treatment. Rattlesnakes come out of hibernation during the spring, when the temperatures start to warm up, and are active in many parts of the country well into the fall. They’re most active when the temperature is between 80 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • 5 Tips for Controlling Your Cat Allergies

    VetDepot
    25 Mar 2015 | 1:13 pm
    Many people with cat allergies are able to live comfortably with a feline companion in the house. The first step in controlling allergy symptoms is to speak with an allergist, who may recommend medication, environmental changes, dietary changes, or allergy shots. But there are also some steps you can take at home on your own to combat the sniffles: 1. Move the litter box: Litter boxes are full of allergy inducers including dander, dust and litter. Consider putting the box in a guest bathroom you don’t use often or another area of the house you don’t have a lot of contact with. If…

    Dog walks are a great opportunity to give your dog some much needed exercise, work on training, and spend some quality time together. Keep the experience a positive one by sticking to the following guidelines: 1. Don’t let your dog approach another dog without asking: Your pup may get along with other doggies without any issues, but this isn’t the case for all canines. Always ask before allowing your dog to say hello to a strange dog. 2. Don’t forget those poop bags: This one is common courtesy! Keep your neighborhood, park, or other communal space safe and clean so that others can…

Don't get me wrong, Oliver enjoys these games as well. To be honest, I do too! It's always fun to change things up a bit, and plugging in a new theme for each walk--or even each week's walks--can be a fun way to teach your dog to reconnect with his senses, even if they may be lagging a bit behind their earlier abilities.Since Tanner's ears and eyes are less acutely active these days, I'll be working to…

Do you find this to be a little annoying or downright uncontrollable? This is a pretty common problem that a lot of people are dealing with. This is something that I help a lot of my clients with, as well as a lot of shelter dogs.Why do dogs even find this to be enjoyable? The simple answer is because the dog’s behavior is reinforced.

    The pancreas is a digestive organ in dog’s physiology, it is connected to the first section of the small intestine know as the duodenum by the pancreatic duct and to the bloodstream via a rich network of vessels. VitaHound’s research emphasizes the health of the dog’s digestive process and the pancreas is pivotal. The function of the pancreas is best considered by thinking about the two types of cell it contains: endocrine (hormones) and exocrine (enzymes).

    Canine Oral Care Without Brushing Honey has been used as a natural wound healer and infection fighter since ancient times, and new research is showing that a specific type of honey from New Zealand — Manuka honey — may offer a wealth of additional healing benefits. Manuka honey is made by bees that feed off the flowers of the Manuka bush, a medicinal plant native to New Zealand. The natural compound known as propolis is a highly active substance derived from bees pollinating the Manuka plant.

    Providing for your dog’s quality of life requires diagnosing their level of health absent their direct feedback. 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…

The Dog Pacer rep had their own dog trotting on one of the machines and was really enjoying the exercise. However I fully expected any random dog that attempted to tryout the machine to act fairly nervous and uneasy. It was exactly the opposite the dogs took to the treadmill with eagerness and rather than attempting to jump off when the tread began moving the dogs instinctively kept pace as their…

He was collected from Dogs Trust just over a week ago, and has been settling into his new home with Wendy and her family very well by amusing them with his mischievous antics, and demonstrating how loving he is. Adorable Hugo has the characteristic blue eyes and black and white markings often seen with Huskies, but his short fur is a nod to his Pointer ancestry.

If you have a cross or mix breed and aren’t sure exactly how large your tiny puppy will grow up to be, have a look at their paws. Larger paws may indicate a greater height or weight.

Because, duh, it's Heaven, and they'd be purring non-stop!But then, the thought of never getting to hear cats purr in Heaven made me sad (assuming I'll be joining them there), because besides Dewi making wookiee noises, babies laughing, mockingbirds singing and waves crashing, I can't think of…

Pugs are very clever, smart and stubborn enough to figure out how to get their own way and usually that’s sleeping right beside you in bed. They can be bossy, stubborn, and full of naughtiness. But best of all they are one of the most affectionate and overtly loving breeds and nothing is sweeter than hearing a snorting, snoring pug…

It can drive the most tolerant peep nuts and if you’re like my peep, you want to stop it at once. If fact my peep thinks it’s very unattractive when I whine.

    A Time to PooI had to get some dinner.  My idea was to go to Whole Foods and pick up something from the buffet.  My only hesitation was Corky.Corky is relaxing in the wheelwell on the drive home.Corky generally doesn't poo at school.  He saves it for 5 pm at home.  It was nearing 5 pm and we were not at home.  We were pulling up to Whole Foods. It was the Pooing Hour. Corky and I got out of the car and I walked him over to a grassy median where I tried to get him to busy.  He wandered around sniffing.  He finally peed halfheartedly and sniffed a bit more.

Anyone who has ever raised a puppy knows that the decision to adopt is not one that should be taken lightly.  Puppies are cuddly, adorable and fun, and they can add joy and fulfillment to the lives of their families.  But they are also a lot of work.  And they require a great deal of love, patience, training and supervision.

The oil does not contain any detectable Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC. Hemp is NOT marijuana).

I’ve found the Eastern Hognose in its natural habitat and have bred it for a release program during my tenure at the Bronx Zoo. But as this snake limits its diet to toads, it is rarely seen in zoos or private collections. The Western Hognose Snake (Heterodon nasicus), on the other hand, has gained a following among snake-keepers that is usually reserved for rat snakes, boas, and pythons. It seems to be the most popular of the “non-typical” snakes kept, at least here in the USA. Reasons for this…

    In today’s article, romantic comedy author Trevor Williams lets us know why all of his books feature a lovable Labrador Retriever. “It’s all down to Merlin. We got him when he was one year old. Merlin was an abused child; half starved, beaten and scared stiff of everything and everybody. His joints were badly deformed and the vet told us he’d be lucky to reach 6 or 7. In the end, Merlin reached the ripe old age of 13. Not bad for a sad, mistreated bag of bones. After the suffering he had endured, he could have turned into a vicious, malevolent hellhound, intent upon exacting…

    Hip dysplasia is a serious condition affecting dogs of many different breeds. This disease can be crippling,  especially in medium and large dogs like Labrador Retrievers. If you are searching through advertisements for a Labrador puppy, you will notice that many litters advertised for sale will state the ‘hip scores’ of the parents of their puppies. Sometimes the advert will simply state that both parents are ‘hip scored’ without actually telling you what the scores are. Some will be even more vague, and simply say that the parents’ hips have been tested. But…

    Pippa
    12 Mar 2015 | 8:15 am
    Labradors were originally bred to work as gundogs. Even if your cuddly pet Lab has never even seen a pheasant, he still contains all the instincts of his forefathers. His genetics have wired him to enjoy all of the activities a Retriever was traditionally used for in the working world. Gundog training is therefore a great way to channel your pet labrador’s ‘bounce’ and energy, into a useful activity. It can also help you to gain proper control over your dog. A nice way for pet gundog owners to get into gundog training for fun, is through The Gundog Club. The scheme managed by the…

But this thing turned my idea of flow upside down well before I had seen it in person. For years many of us had attempted to create gyre flow throughout our aquariums to keep detritus in suspension…

Until now, only two species of seadragon were known, the leafy and weedy seadragons. No new seadragon species has been discovered in 150 years. This newest addition to the small group, the aptly-named ruby seadragon, was uncovered by a trawler during a routine biodiversity survey by the University of Western Australia’s Marine Futures project in 2007.

    Unexpected and unaffordable expenditures are the main reasons behind buying insurance. You may be buying all types of insurances, for your family, your car, home and yourself, just to be prepared for the sudden expenditures. But, have you considered buying health insurance for your pet? Taking care of pets has not been taken seriously as far as its cost is concerned. Pet health insurance is just as important as your own insurance to avoid big expenditures. It may not be feasible for a $160 urinary tract infection, but for $3550 fracture repair, it definitely is.

  • 5 Mistakes Puppy Owners Should Avoid

    Liz Upson
    25 Mar 2015 | 4:43 pm
    1. Not brushing your puppy’s teeth. Around 80 percent of dogs will develop some form of dental disease by the time they are three, yet most people still don’t know that they should be brushing their dog’s teeth regularly. Can you imagine not brushing your teeth for weeks or even months on end, morning breath would be the least of your worries… Starting the routine when they are puppies not only helps prevent severe, and very expensive to treat, dental issues but also makes the whole process significantly less traumatic for both the dog and the owner.

    When you bring that new puppy home for the first time, he has a whole new world to learn about….and that inquisitiveness doesn’t stop after the first day, or week, or month.

Unfortunately, this learning curve also involves risk, be it sniffing infected feces or chewing a toy. Combine this curiosity with an immature immune system and it means your puppy is more prone to certain health issues than an adult dog. So what are these problems? To help you prepare here is…

  • Breed Lowdown: Beagles!

    Beagles are one of the most popular breeds of dog in the United States and Miss P’s recent win at the Westminster dog show can only help the breed rise up the popularity rankings. But this modern Beagle barely resembles the hunting dogs Beagles are thought to have descended from. There are records of Talbot Hounds, one of the breeds thought to be part of early Beagle breeding lines, being brought to England by William the Conqueror. These Talbot Hounds were tall and slow, very unlike the modern Beagle we know today. In fact, the earliest dogs referred to as Beagles were under 9 inches…
