Every dog must have a soul
somewhere deep inside
where all his hurts and grievances
are buried with his pride.
Does your Burmese cat or your German Shepherd have one little behavior pattern, one small quirk that really annoys you? Does your dog dive under the couch every time there’s a thunderstorm? Does your cat howl every night at 3 A.M.? What is it that makes your pet act the way he does?
Many an owner has glanced over at their sleeping pet and seen them jerk their legs or twitch their feet. Sometimes this jerking motion is so pronounced that owners become alarmed that their beloved Fluffy is having some sort of seizure.
Mushroom poisoning occurs as a result of your pet ingesting toxic mushrooms. This is a common problem for dogs because they spend so much time in our yards. Check your yard for mushrooms and remove them immediately. Most importantly be aware of the signs and symptoms of mushroom poisoning.
Lucy and Sully ended up at the shelter around the same time, and as soon as they met, they became inseparable. When someone saw Lucy’s picture online and came to adopt her, the two dogs made it very clear that it had to be both of them, or neither of them.
Veterinarians in New York City say there has been a recent rise in stoned dogs. They are brought in sometimes by owners who are also under the effect of drugs. One vet said: ‘We probably see close to one a day at one of our four hospitals.’ Symptoms include lethargy, loss of appetite and being jumpy towards humans. Vets force the animals to vomit to get ingested drug out of the animal’s system.

One of my family’s biggest pleasures during the cold, gray days of winter is watching our feathered friends congregate at our bird feeder. Watching sparrows, doves, cardinals, nut hatches and the occassional rarer species dine together in harmony reinforces my belief that people should take a few lessons from the animals when …
Many studies have shown that rats confined in a small cage, without sufficient space for comfortable movement, become severe sociopaths. Their psychological state quickly deteriorates when they are jammed into crowded conditions, where they are practically unable to move.
Years ago, owners would let their cats wander outdoors. Today, as far as I’m concerned, this is not an option. It’s just too dangerous for our cats and kittens. Cars, other animals, the resurgence of rabies and, sadly, some people, all pose threats to your beloved furballs. As far as I’m concerned, a responsible cat owner does not permit his or her cat to wander outdoors.
Dogs come when they’re called. So of course Kitty can be taught the same thing. Cats are bright enough to learn most basic instructions. It just takes practice, perseverance, and an ounce of know-how. Because a cat who comes when called is a foreign concept to many owners (most everyone has been indoctrinated into thinking cats can’t be taught to come on command), I’ve put together ten easy steps for teaching our favorite furballs this very important response.
Pet insurance helps pet owners pay the cost of medical expenses if the pet becomes ill or has an accident. Some pet insurance plans cover routine checkups and wellness procedures, such as annual exams, spaying, neutering, etc. Veterinary bills can be very high and pet insurance can help to offset the cost. However, in some cases pet insurance can cost more than it pays out so it’s important to consider your own unique situation and various factors before deciding whether or not to purchase pet insurance.
