Why Prevention is More Cost Effective than Treatment When it Comes to Your Pet


Dogs and cats don’t understand the concept of money or a budget, but boy, do humans! We know you’ve probably scratched your head a few times after ordering your pet’s food or even cringed as you waited for your total after your pet’s annual vaccines or a dental cleaning.


Preventing Dog Bites


When it comes to avoiding dog bites, there is one simple solution that can significantly reduce your risk of being bitten: avoid dogs when they feel nervous, fearful, and anxious.


Food Allergies in Dogs


Food allergies in dogs can be difficult to identify, so it is important to keep a close eye on your pet and investigate any abnormal symptoms as soon as possible. Allergies are triggered when allergens invade the dog's body and upset its delicately balanced immune system. A number of things can cause food allergies in dogs, but certain foods, such as beef, lamb, chicken, dairy products, wheat, and soy, are more likely to cause allergy symptoms than others. It is important to note that food allergies are different from food intolerances, as food intolerances are caused by poor digestion of certain foods.
