If you're a dog owner, you may recognize that Leptospirosis, often called Lepto for short, is one of the yearly vaccines that the vet may recommend for your pet. But what exactly is Lepto? What are the symptoms? How dangerous is Leptospirosis, and how do dogs catch it? It's important for pet owners to understand what diseases pose risks to their pets, how to recolonize these diseases, and how to prevent or treat them. ...continue reading What You Need To Know About Leptospirosis
I have a bit of a ritual when it comes to reviews. I have a little table right next to my computer desk. When I get a pet product (or in the case of pet subscription boxes, a series of products) to review I'll keep them on this table. If it's a toy or something the dogs are testing out, I'll keep just the packaging on the table in place of the actual product. I don't throw away packaging/move products off the table until my review is done. Most of the time, this helps encourage me to get my reviews up ASAP, because I want to be able to get them out of my work space. ...continue reading July 2016 Pooch Perks Review
Kitsune is a Papillon, a breed that is often described as being "wash and wear". Unlike some other breeds, Papillons, even when they are being shown, are not heavily groomed. Their fur is left long and flowing, although it is normal to neaten up the fur on the paws, hocks, and personal areas.
Despite this, I have trimmed Kit's fur short, to one degree or another, since he was around a year old. He always seems to feel more comfortable with shorter fur. His shorter fur is less messy and easier to maintain, and my fiance and I both like the way Kit looks after his trims. ...continue reading How To Tell If A Dog Has A Single Or Double Coat
The puppers got their July Pooch Perks box in the mail on Monday. I'm going to post an in depth review of what we got next week, but wanted to give you all a bit of a sneak peak. Mostly because I took a video of Kit opening the box and didn't want to wait to share it.
Kit gets so excited when the mail comes! I'm sure it helps that upwards of 95% of the mail I get is stuff for the dogs. They especially love their pet subscription boxes. I don't think it's hard to see why! ...continue reading Kitsune Loves Mail
I've had the pleasure of sharing my life with house rabbits since getting my first one, Zeus, in 2006. Zeus, unfortunately, was only with us for two years, but he installed in me a love for rabbits that has caused me to not only adopt four of my own (one of which is currently still with us), but also to become an active member of the rabbit rescue community.
Not everyone seems to be aware of the fact that, unfortunately, domestic rabbits are rehomed, and abandoned, in high numbers throughout the US. There are many reasons why a pet owner may choose to give up a pet - but the one I want to focus on in this post is allergies. ...continue reading Keep The Rabbit, Switch The Hay!
I've got some very happy pups this week - they recently received their July Pet Treater box! We've been reviewing these boxes for awhile now (click here to check out our past reviews) and this month's box, like all the others, did not disappoint! ...continue reading July 2016 Pet Treater Review & Coupon Codes
We're going to keep today's post short and sweet! I've been enjoying the first long weekend that I've taken for awhile and don't want to spend a lot of time on the computer, especially when I have puppies to snuggle, but I did want to stop by and wish everyone who is celebrating today a safe and fun 4th of July!
Happy 4th of July weekend! As many of us prepare for the summer festivities to take place this weekend; fireworks, cookouts, etc, it's important to also make sure you keep your pets safety in mind. More pets go missing around the 4th of July than any other time of year. Fear of fireworks is common, but they aren't the only danger associated with American Independence Day. ...continue reading Pet 4th of July Safety
