Thankful Pets

For dedicated and loving pet owners, expressing all of the ways in which you’re thankful for your pet is easy. Even when your pet challenges you as a patient owner, like when kitty jumps on your stomach at 3am or pup gets into some food he’s not supposed to, it’s still a no brainer to realize all of the ways in which you appreciate all of the love and joy your pet brings into your life.

Is This Much Shedding Normal? When Hair Loss in Pets is Problematic

Shedding is just one of those things that come with having a cat or dog, but how much shedding is normal, and when does excessive hair loss signify a medical issue?

What is a “Normal” Amount of Shedding?

While it’s expected for your dog or cat to leave his or her hairs here and there (think of it as their “calling card”), what is considered a normal amount of shedding? The answer is: it depends. Long-haired breeds of dogs and cats may shed more than short-haired breeds. Additionally, your pet may shed more in the warmer seasons than during colder weather.

Cellophane wrappers, lollipop sticks, plastic spider rings, candy, and all the assorted trappings of Halloween can pose a danger to curious pets.

Imagine this: your inquisitive puppy sticks his nose in the candy bowl and inhales whatever is there (in the way some dogs do – swallow and don’t even chew, before anyone can take it away!). Or, maybe your cat is more discreet and snags those teeny plastic toys when you’re not around. Next, your pet starts gagging and choking.

Creepy Crawlies: Cats and Ear Mites

This Halloween, you may think spiders and worms are the creepiest pests around, but cats have a whole other idea of what creeps them out: microscopic parasites that crawl into their ears and make themselves at home.

The Veterinary Lobby: Safety Tips for Cats

A visit to the veterinarian with your cat can potentially be a stressful undertaking for both you and your pet, from wrangling them up at home and getting them into the carrier, to arriving at a hectic hospital lobby. On the other hand, for some people, maybe it’s a fun adventure. Perhaps your cat gets into the carrier without issue and travels well. It can also be fun to see other pets and pet owners at the hospital. Either way, it’s important to remember that not every pet and pet owner has the same experience when going to the veterinary office.

Why Cats Knock Things Over

Whether you find it amusing or frustrating - or a little of both - the fact is if you own a cat, they are going to knock objects off any elevated surface, such as your desk or a table. Are they simply trying to be annoying, or is there a reason for this behavior? Dog people will use this as an example of how cats are not intelligent and a reason not to like them. Even some cat people may not understand this behavior and find it frustrating. However, there are several reasons that contribute to why cats do this.
