Catnip is legendary for making cats act in strange ways, but if you're a new cat owner, you might be wondering if it's really safe for your cats. The good news is that catnip is part of the mint family, and it is just as harmless for your cat to chew on it or eat it as it is for you to eat mint. However, there are some things that you might want to keep in mind if you intend to introduce your cat to catnip.
- Animal Boarding is leaving your pet(s) in the care of a professional for a short time period such as a few days, where you can be sure they will be taken care of properly. Pets will rest in kennels and be provided food, water, attention, and medical care if necessary. They will also be given some exercise, such as being taken for a walk (dogs) or allowed to play in a play room (cats).
- Caring for your dog can be overwhelming. From purchasing the right food and training to making sure they get the right vaccinations and sufficient exercise, it is easy to see the challenges of having a dog in the family. Unfortunately, even when helping your dog's health and wellness, certain conditions may develop. A corneal ulcer is a common issue that affects many different dog breeds, but most people do not realize the causes, symptoms, and treatment options for this condition of the eye.
- Are you the owner of a beloved dog? If this animal has been in your life for a while, it may be easy for you to spot when something is wrong. If your dog is having seizures out of nowhere, it could be a sign that something serious is going on, so it is important to have your pet checked out. Some of the most common causes of dog seizures include liver disease, epilepsy or even brain cancer.
- For most people, dogs are like dear friends or even members of the family: they play with the kids, they greet you when you come home from work, they are a constant companion, and they may even go on vacation with you. However, while most parents make sure that their children get regular check-ups at the pediatrician and the dentist, many don't take their pet to the veterinarian or animal hospital until there are signs or symptoms of something being wrong.
