Jodi and Brittany spent the week helping organize, deliver supplies, and checking on animals. They helped feed, water, assess, and love on over 300 animals including many cats and chickens, a few dogs, sheep, ducks, and 1 pig....

Recently the FDA posted an alert that the flea and tick medications in the isoxazoline class are now carrying a possible seizure risk in dogs and ataxia in cats.

Finding the perfect diet for health, longevity, and fitness has long been an obsession of Americans. Paleo, gluten-free, and “clean eating” are just a few of the more recent trends to hit the billion-dollar diet industry, with entire aisles of the grocery store devoted to certain types of foods that are purported to have almost miraculous powers of healing and regeneration. Inevitably, these trends spill over into the pet food industry. About 10 years ago, dog and cat foods labeled “grain-free” began showing up on the shelves of pet food stores. In 2017, 43% of pet specialty foods were...

For many people, the idea of a muzzled dog evokes feelings of fear. This is from a long-standing association of muzzles being used with dangerous dogs. Muzzles are used for so much more than aggression issues. Muzzles, when used correctly, are a wonderful tool that gives your dog more freedom safely. It's time to eliminate those negative associations and appreciate muzzles for all the good things they can do.

A muzzle can be a life saver by preventing dogs from eating rocks, sticks, and other objects that can cause gastrointestinal obstructions. They are a great training tool for...
