Do you have a new little holiday present in your house? If it’s just you and your new buddy or the family has decided to add a furbaby to the masses, having a new pet in the house requires some well thought out changes. Whether you decided to get a new puppy or adopt...
The holidays are a time to celebrate. Getting together with loved ones, getting dressed up, and attending parties are just a few of the things we like to enjoy this time of year. As a part of the family, your pet may be joining in on the fun with cute costumes, dog parties, and more. Let’s not forget, however, safety first!
Turkey, ham, goose, oh my! During the holidays, we generally see an increase in large meals with festive treats. Your pet is a part of the family, and this may be the one time of year that you let them indulge in table scraps. Especially when they look up at you with those sad, “feed me” eyes. We don’t blame you, we do it, too. However, you can include your pets and also make sure you’re not harming them with unhealthy or even risky foods.

It may seem a little silly or just a little over-the-top, but dressing up your furbaby for Halloween may be one of the most adorable trends on the internet. Just one search for dog costume, and you’ll be inundated with the squees.
This is a very important topic when taking your pet anywhere. It’s even more important when bringing your pet to visit a vet clinic. Pet parents know the basics of leashing or traveling with your pet in a carrier is to make sure that their pets don’t run off. While this is indeed true, there are many other reasons you want to make sure you are practicing this behavior. Mainly, it’s for safety.
