  • Alternative Therapies to Ease Pet's Arthritis

    Arthritic pain can be as crippling to our pets as it is to their owners, particularly in the dead of winter. If you've noticed your dog or cat moving a little slower these days, they may have arthritis, also called degenerative joint disease (DJD). The ailment is common in older, as well as long-backed dogs and cats. While there are a number of ways this disease can be treated, a combination of prescription medication and natural methods are often considered most effective.

  • PETS Act of 2006: Understanding your pets rights in a disaster

    understanding the pets act of2006 The PETS Act of 2006 was passed to help evacuating owners and pets together. It's a good start - helping to ensure that people can take their pets along with them during evacuation due to a disaster. But, its effectiveness relies largely on your state and their wilingness to make accommodations for pets. It's just not as inclusive as we'd like to see it be. 

    For instance, prvate and public shelters can still deny your pets entry. Hotels can still deny entry. In fact, all that the Act really accomplish was to give states incentive (in the form of funding) to accommodate pets.

    This means, FEMA or the State may choose to build extra pet-friendly shelters. It also requires them to include pets in emergency planning, for instance in federal evacuation on buses, pets should now be allowed. There are a few things they should do if they choose, and if they do, they can apply for DHS funds. If they don't, no funding.

  • Learning to Live with Bobcats

    guide to understanding bobcats After posting our articles on Keeping Pets Safe from Coyotes, we began to get questions about living with other species of urban wildlife, so we're taking some time to discuss ways we can all live peacefully together. 

    As we discussed before, most predators are opportunistic and omnivorous - this means that like humans, coyotes and bobcats and other predators can survive on just about anything as long itis easy to access with a minimum amount of danger to the animal. This includes birds, reptiles, and yes - your small dog or cat. 

    We bring you the ultimate guide to humanely keep a bobcat from your yard.

  • Evacuating or Sheltering in Place with Pets in Disasters

    Evacuation with Pets

    The United States and others areas of the world have been faced with disasters everywhere. Massive wild fires are decimating Montana, Washington, Oregon, and California; the Southwest is recovering from deadly flooding due to Hurricane Harvey, and hurricane Irma is fast approaching Florida and the east coast with Jose and Katta are following on its heels. For that reason, we want to address a few questions we’ve gotten about evacuating with pets.

    There have been far too many cases of animals being turned away from shelter during these disasters. This leaves the owners to abandon or board their pets to enter shelter, or venture back into the storm with their pets.
