Pet Fashion Month

October is Pet Fashion Month! What a better way to start off Autumn than with a new outfit – and of course end it off with a bang in your Halloween costume! Ok, not all dogs are into wearing clothes, but those with short hair need sweaters and coats to keep them warm and comfortable during the cold, wet, winter months. But even those with long hair can get into Pet Fashion Month by sporting a fancy bandana or jersey to cheer on...

Senior Pets – Toilet Misses – Outsmarting a Cat

It seems like only yesterday we adopted Lily as a wee kitten, but in fact its been 13 years! Lily was very petite when we got her and not much has changed over the years, she’s still tiny, no more than 7 pounds. Lily has always been a healthy cat, able to run quickly after her favourite toy, a ball of tin foil, and leap high and effortlessly onto window sills to chatter at the birds, and of course the bathroom sink – her...

Animal Actors or Pets

Do tv programs and movies effect the popularity of dog breeds? And if so, what effect does it have on that breed? Is it positive – showing the dog in a different light, or highlighting the skills that these dogs/breeds are capable of? Is it negative –  this dog breed is now so popular that everyone wants/needs to have one, even if that dog is not the right fit for you or your family? Do people understand that what they are...

No Excuses – No Hot Pets

There’s nothing I like better than going for a car ride with my humans, the adventure, the anticipation of where we will end up, maybe a park, possibly the pet store for a new toy. A car ride with your dog can be great fun, as long as you’re in the car together. Why together? Well, what fun is it for a dog to go for a car ride and sit alone while your humans run into a store, or stop in to see someone, even if it is...

Vet Chat with Dr. Llera – Scratching the Surface of Skin Disease

Scratching the Surface of Skin Disease Previously, we discussed the top 5 visit reasons that pets get seen at their veterinarians. Well, we didn’t talk about skin issues but a top 6 list doesn’t sound as cool and the integumentary system has so many facets, it deserves a post of it’s own. When I was in Florida, I would call it a dermatologist’s dream job because of the number of skin problems. So why are we...

4 My Friend

Recently I was approached to review www.4MyFriend.com, a site dedicated to memorials for pets. I admit I was cautious and asked myself did I want to discuss such a sensitive topic but after viewing this site I was impressed with the classiness and sensitivity of the site.     Pet owners are a passionate group of people dedicated to the love and well being of their animals, no matter it be a dog, cat, reptile, horse, bunny,...

Lumps, Bumps and Cysts in Dogs – When the Vet says “Oh”

Lumps, Bumps and Cysts in Dogs A few days before Edie’s annual check up I noticed a cyst-like bump on her face. There it was, hidden under her face fold, just above her nose. As much as I keep an eye on her face folds and wipe them on a daily basis, they occasionally get sore and I need to treat with cream, but this time it was different. It was not the usual sore skin, but a red bump. She did not seem bothered by it, it did not...
