Drinkwell® Ceramic Avalon Pet Fountain – Review

Drinkwell® Ceramic Avalon Pet Fountain – Review If you have a cat there’s a good chance this is a familiar site. I know you’re shaking your head, you know what I’m talking about! You walk into the bathroom only to be greeted by a cat that’s waiting for the basin tap to be turned on. It doesn’t matter that you have three bowls filled with fresh water spread over various rooms in the house! Your cat is most certainly...

Cats – They Can Love Going to the Veterinarian!

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

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...

Spinal Issues, Diseases and Injuries in Dogs

I’ve asked Dr. Ryan Llera if he would discuss spinal issues, diseases and back injuries in dogs. I wanted to know if there was anything we as pet parents could do to eliminate or reduce the risks of back injuries in our dogs. 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...

Let’s Start With Saying “Thank You”

As pet owners we easily sympathize, support and understand each other when one of our pets is sick or injured. It’s stressful, scary, and oh those thoughts that go through our head, the “what if’s”. Now imagine being a person that see’s sick and injured pets each and every day? Or being a person that has to tell a pet owner news none of us ever want to hear? In addition to this person feeling responsible for your pet’s health, they...

Does the Size of Your Dog Matter?

Does the Size of Your Dog Matter?

Do you consider yourself a “Big Dog” person, or a “Little Dog” person? Is there such a thing? Does the size of your dog matter? When growing up all the dogs in my life happened to be large dogs. I don’t think it was a conscience decision; it just seemed to happen that way. Living on a farm for several years the dogs we had there were always large. We didn’t exactly choose these dogs, many came from people that lived in the city and...

Door Buddy – Review

Door Buddy Review I’m Edie the pug and I have a confession to make. I like snacking in the cat litter boxes. There. I said it. Don’t judge me. As I’ve told my humans “Don’t knock it unless you’ve tried it” 😉 Apparently this “dirty secret” of mine is not acceptable behavior. It’s met with nasty looks and words no pug should ever hear 😉 In an effort to curtail my persistence of wanting to sample kitty litter treasures, my humans tired...

Pooch Patch The backyard in a box that’s delivered right to your door! My first thought when seeing a photo of the Pooch Patch on Instagram was this could be a great product for Edie to use during the wet, snowy, cold Canadian winter months. But then I thought, why limit it to only half of the year? For squishy-faced dogs like Edie, the recent heat wave and extreme heat alerts can be a health concern. In these extreme weather...

What do we really know about our dog’s nose and their sense of smell? Have you ever really looked at your dog’s nose and wondered how it works?  What is it your dog finds so intriguing that they insist on stopping and sniffing every tree, hydrant, pole and random spots on the grass while on a walk? Why when we pull on that leash...
