Pet Insurance. Pros, Cons and Alternatives

Pet Insurance Pros,Cons and Alternatives Pet insurance. Is it worth the cost? What are the pros and cons? Are there alternatives? Years ago, before pet insurance was as common as it is today, I purchased a policy for my then Golden Retriever. Considering today’s current fees, it was in my opinion, expensive for that time. And, not having had submitted any claims on that policy, after only the first year our premiums increased...

PetSafe CozyUp Wood Pet Steps

Big dog, little dog, cat or kitten, our pets love to be with us and that includes snuggling on the couch or napping in our beds. But no matter where our pets choose to get comfortable, making sure they do it safely is priority. With two dogs and a cat, all ranging in age from three to 16 years, I have to consider not only young bones, but aging and arthritic ones as well. Call my pets spoiled, but it’s rare for them to lay on...

Pet Care During Covid

Pet Care During COVID In a previous post “Social Distancing and Veterinarian Visits” I discussed what this new world meant for me as a pet parent taking my dogs for a veterinarian visit. What I once took for granted, walking inside the vet’s office, physically being with my pets during their exam, and talking to our vet in person, is not necessarily the case anymore. Yes, some vet clinics are now allowing you to be...

How Old Is Your Dog?

It used to be the question I’d get asked most often about my pug Edie had to due with her tongue. “Why does her tongue hang out?” “Does it always hang out?” “Is there something wrong with her tongue?” “Is she missing teeth?” The questions about my dog’s tongue have never bothered me. I take it in stride usually laughing along with them. I explain that there is nothing wrong with my dog’s tongue, and yes, it always...

Adopt A Cat Month

Adopt a Cat Month June is Adopt a Cat Month At a time when people are feeling isolated, and yes, lonely, adopting a cat can fill the need for companionship. While many of us are spending more time at home, and working from home, we are more likely to have the required time to devote to a newly adopted cat or kitten. However, as tempting as a new companion is, and the benefits of adopting a cat are, we must consider if will we be able...

Since March, our dogs have had us all to themselves. We’ve been home with them each and every minute of every single day. Whether it’s snuggling on the couch watching Netflix, or being the centre of...

Moving Long Distance With Pugs and a Cat

Moving Long Distance With Pugs (and a Cat) Moving homes, as exciting as it can be, can also be a very stressful and overwhelming time. Add to that moving with pets, well, that just creates a whole other level of stress, the unknowns, the what if’s, and the how too. This is not my first time moving, nor my first time moving with “a” dog. This is however, my first time moving with two dogs, a cat, and to top it off, a long distance move...

Why Senior Cats Meow at Night

Why Senior Cats Meow at Night Why, as soon as I turn off the lights, get settled into bed, does my cat starts howling and meowing? This is not something my cat had ever done before. This change in my senior cat’s behaviour seems to have started out of nowhere, and since its begun, it hasn’t stopped. I lay in bed going over a check list in my head – yes, I fed the cat; yes, the litter box has been cleaned; yes, the...

Do Pets Grieve The Passing of Another Pet?

Do Pets Grieve The Passing of Another Pet? Do pets grieve the passing of another pet? If so, what are the symptoms and what would a grieving pet look like? Would a grieving pet display changes in sleep patterns or food intake? Will a pet become vocal – a cat meowing more, or a dog barking and whining?  Would the loss of a pet cause a dog or cat to withdraw, become quieter, or begin to seek out additional comfort and constant...
