Don't let Halloween be a SCARY time for pets!

Halloween dog costume

Halloween is full of frightful sugar-induced fun for kids and adults alike, but when it comes to pets, the same treats that we enjoy can cause severe illness, or worse. If you have kids, make sure that they understand that their candy is NOT to be shared with the family dog(s)! (It’s just more for them anyway). Stress the importance of keeping their Halloween haul safe, and in a high place or closed cupboard that nosy wet noses can’t sniff out. Dogs may love chocolate as much as we do, but they don’t know how bad it is for them: if they make off with too many treats, the effects can be downright lethal.For more tips on how to avoid the biggest health hazards to pets at Halloween, read on…

L'Eau de Carcass: Why your dog loves to roll in it

More research has unearthed (pun completely intended!) a pretty comprehensive study conducted on “scent-rubbing” (not to be confused with “scent-marking,” which transfers the animal’s individual scent to the environment, most effectively accomplished by “territory marking” through urinating and defecating, but also (especially in cats) by rubbing up against things). A study of wolves and another study in hyenas (unfortunately, no similar studies have been found in domestic dogs) showed that scent-rubbing is an “unconditioned response”, which means that it’s an instinct, simple as that.

Preventing Doggy Swimmer's Ear!

Summertime brings with it longer days, sun-drenched vacations, and necessary escapes to the nearest body of water to cool down.

When water enters the ear canal, the perfect environment – dark and wet – is created for bacterial and yeast to grow in. Read on for more tips on preventing ear infections in your summertime swimmers!

He then starts acting as though he’s sniffed out the most delicious, intoxicating scent and is no longer responding to […]
