It’s not uncommon to see people out with their dogs, going on errands, meeting up for coffee, and of course travelling. The pet industry is a billion dollar industry with pet parents who think nothing of opening their...

Pet Loo Portable Pet Toilet by PetSafe Canada – Review Temperatures in Toronto have been well above seasonal this past week and although I’m thrilled, I can’t say the same for my dog Miss Edie. Don’t get me wrong; Edie loves the warm, sunny weather, but, and this is a big “BUT, she does not like the wet, squishy, muddy feel under her paws when steeping onto the grass to go potty. Encouraging Edie to go potty on wet grass is a...

Cats – They Can Love Going to the Veterinarian!

Cats They Can Love Going to the Veterinarian! I have two cats, Lily and Lloyd. I admit when Lily and Lloyd were younger I did not take them to the veterinarian as often as I took my dogs. Why? I believed because my cats are indoor cats, never going outdoors, only watching birds and leafs fly by from the inside of a window or door, their health was protected. As if that window or door would magically keep all illness and disease away...

Walking a Reactive Dog

What does it mean when a dog is fear reactive, does it say that the dog is a mean dog, is it a reflection of the dog owner? My dogs have always been the happy go lucky kind of dogs. They all enjoyed walks, going to parks, meeting other dogs and people. But then all that changed. I was faced with a dog that wanted nothing to do with other dogs, and definitely not an off leash dog!  The same went for people he didn’t know. He was...

And, if a back injury happens, or our dog is diagnosed with intervertebral disc disease (IVDD), what, if anything can we do to help our dogs. Spinal Issues, Diseases and Injuries in Dogs Multiple dog breeds...
