  2. Are you and your pet(s) (dog or cat) ready for the Christmas Tree?

    Did you know holly, mistletoe, and poinsettia plants are poisonous to dogs or cats? If you normally use these plants to decorate your home, they should be kept in an area your pet cannot reach. Tinsel can add a nice sparkling touch to the tree, but make sure you hang it up out of your pet's...

  5. Cruciate Ligament Injury in Dogs

    Until 6 years ago, I had never heard of this condition and now I'm dealing with it for the 2nd time with the same dog.

  6. Warning on lilies and toxicity for cats

    Having learned a (very expensive) lesson this weekend, I thought to pass on a warning to cat owners. Yesterday, a friend came over and brought me a bouquet of lilies (they haven't opened yet but I think they are the Stargazer type) and I put them in a vase on the kitchen counter. Friend,...

  7. Help with fleas

    Has anyone had very good success with ridding your home of fleas? They've entered either by the dog or the two cats and while I haven't seen an overwhelming number of them I do know they are in the house and aren't exactly limited to one area. A vet's office recommended some sort of "bomb" but...

  8. Dog Hot Spots

    One of my dogs developed a “hot spot” on her back over the weekend and it’s amazing how fast it spread. When I first noticed it on Sunday, it was small ... maybe about an inch or so in area and by Monday when I took her to the vet, it had spread to the size of a saucer. It was raw and looked very...

  9. Cat Foods................

    I had seen a t.v show on the cat food industry, and its much like I expected as so many other products. When the packaging reads 'well-balanced; or 'top cat food', veterinary brands, they all are the same. Don't get fooled by spending tons of money on them, you really have to read the...

    Last summer, Socks, my eighteen year old cat passed away. I had moved away to attend college and get married, so she was left with my grandmother and lived there happily with a few other senior-aged cats and dogs.
