This is actually more normal than not. Cats have a short digestive system designed for eating meat. When cats consume a diet that contains other ingredients, especially when the food is sprayed with fats after manufacture so it’s palatable to the cat, the feces will also contain undigested fats. Plus, cat feces have an odor that attracts dogs. Although we find this disgusting, if your dog eats a piece of cat feces once in a wh...

Here are 5 tips on how to keep your pet from panicking this Fourth of July.

1. Keep your Pet Indoors at All Times

It may seem obvious, but even if your pet is used to being outside, the resulting panic caused by fireworks or other loud noises may make them break their restraint or jump a fence in a terrified attempt to find safety.

My Cat’s Tail Movements Confuse Me

Dog owners are often confused by a cat’s tail movements. The movements seem, at times, to be similar enough that perhaps they should have the same meanings. Yet at other times, they are completely different. Cats like to keep us guessing!  A relaxed, comfortable cat will hold her tail slightly lowered and possibly moving slightly from side to side.

With all the fun activities planned this Summer, don’t forget to include your best friend in some safe activities! Below are four pieces of advice that we can take from our four-legged best friends this summer:

For many pets with dietary problems, pumpkin can be a safe, easy and inexpensive solution. The virtues of pumpkin are many, but its main positive attributes are its vitamin A content and its fiber content. Most animals have plenty of vitamin A in their diet, however, extra fiber can be beneficial for a variety of reasons.

It is unclear why some dogs experience separation anxiety and others do not when left alone at home. What is clear is that it can be a trying situation for any dog owner. During bouts of separation anxiety, dogs often urinate or defecate in the house, howl or yelp loudly and continuously, bark incessantly, chew furniture and other objects, and dig or scratch at doors and windows.
