Dogs are very expressive animals. They communicate when they’re feeling happy, sad, nervous, fearful and angry, and they use their faces and bodies to convey much of this information. Dog body language is an elaborate and sophisticated system of nonverbal communication that, fortunately, we can learn to recognize and interpret.

These skills will enable you to interact with dogs with greater enjoyment and......

One would assume that the frigid temperatures we endured this past winter were surely way too harsh for any tick......

They would doubtlessly do anything to shield their pets from harm but, unfortunately, there is one damaging disease that is often overlooked. Carried by something barely the size of a freckle, one of the most common causes of pet afflictions is not so easily spotted… the Deer tick. Even with diligent tick checks and prevention treatments, the risk that one of those bothersome bloodsuckers will stow away somewhere in your pet’s fur is still......

  Visit the Vet  A visit to the veterinarian for a spring or early summer check-up is a must. Make sure your pets get tested for heartworm if they aren’t on year-round preventive medication.

IDENTIFYING PAIN IN DOGS AND CATS

Pain levels in pets are one of the most difficult things for pet parents and veterinarians to diagnose. Animals are uniquely equipped to hide any pain they may be experiencing – a skill that has been fine-tuned through the centuries as predator and prey have evolved. To show weakness of any kind in the wild is virtually a death sentence when predators lurk around every corner. As humans, we have learned to identify pain in pets. We may not always get it right, but we can look for certain signals that let......

Occasionally, I will admit, we do feed our dogs (and cats) scraps. Usually just meat, but sometimes it varies. When I don’t know if the food will harm them or not, usually I just don’t give them any. I’ve been researching, and have complied a list of foods dogs cannot eat, and why they can’t eat......
