(StatePoint) The holiday season can mean new routines, new décor and new foods in your home. While these temporary changes can be exciting for people, they can be hazardous to pets.
(BPT) - Fall weather affects pets just like their people. While you are taking precautions to protect yourself from cooler temperatures and environmental changes, you need to safeguard your dogs and cats, too.
(NAPSI)—There appears to be a significant difference between what many people offer as their opinion about pet homelessness and what, if anything, they do about the problem.
(BPT) - The most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that more than one-third, or 78.6 million, of U.S. adults are obese. While the issue is well-recognized among the public, many don’t realize there is a second obesity epidemic occurring simultaneously - a pet obesity epidemic, which is even more severe.
(BPT) - While there is no doubt that pet owners love their furry friends, it’s fair to say that dogs and cats can easily take over the home. Whether you’re dealing with a sick cat or attempting puppy potty training, you can quickly find yourself in a bacteria breeding ground.
(BPT) - The addition of a new pet to the family is always a cause for celebration. Stress can occur, too, no matter how welcome the new addition. When you’re thinking about adopting a pet from an animal shelter, some preparation can help ensure he or she is as safe and happy as possible.
(BPT) - If you’re a pet owner, you know parasites - particularly fleas and ticks - can be a frustrating problem. That’s why you keep your pet out of tall grass and brush, and do routine flea and tick checks inside. You’re probably also using a flea and tick product to ensure your pet and family are safe from the parasite-borne diseases these pests can carry into your home.
(BPT) - Taking active, preventive measures to support your health is one of the most important things you can do to ward off serious illness. You eat right, exercise, brush your teeth and make sure to get plenty of sleep, all to keep your body running at its very best.
