A way to help keep your four legged friend cool

Jun 22, 2018

Looking for a way to help keep your four legged friend cool in this heat? 

Here's an idea:
3 Ingredient Frozen Dog Treats

Ingredients: 1 cup chicken stock
1 cup peanut butter
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

In a small bow, combine peanut butter and parsley; set aside. Divide chicken broth evenly in a silicone ice cube tray, filling the tray halfway full. Place into freezer and freeze until set, about 1 hour. Spoon peanut butter mixture into the tray, filling the tray full. Place into freezer and freeze until hard, at least four hours.

Serve to your four legged budy and watch him/her enjoy!

Canine Influenza

Jun 23, 2017

Canine Influenza Virus

  • Canine Influenza Virus is spread through:
    • Close proximity to infected dogs (it is airborne and can travel up to 20 ft.)
    • Contact with contaminated items (bowls, leashes, crates, tables, clothing, dog runs, etc.)
    • People moving between infected and uninfected dogs
    • 80% of all dogs that are exposed to the virus will contract it
    • The virus lives up to 24 hours on soft surfaces and up to 48 hours on hard surfaces.
  • Some exposed dogs will be subclinical carriers - meaning some dogs will contract and spread the virus without showing symptoms.
  • Dogs show clinical signs within 24-48 hours and can shed the virus for up to 28 days from exposure.
  • Most dogs will completely recover with proper treatment.
  • Dogs that regularly interact with dogs outside of their own family or frequent places where many dogs gather are most susceptible to exposure to Canine Influenza Virus.

THE PUPPY'S CLOSEST FRIEND

Dec 22, 2016

Adopting a puppy means bringing him into the heart of your life, and developing a healthy relationship demands plenty of hard work and dedication from you - especially now, at the beginning.  The day you adopt a puppy begins a new phase in his life, one rooted in his earliest experiences, yet now poised to take fresh expression in your life.  How he develops now depends largely on you.  The puppy is no longer the breeder's, no longer his mother's.  Today he becomes your puppy a new member of your family, and this means you become parent, companion, pack leader, peer - the puppy's closest friend.

The Power of a Pet

Through research, we now better understand the human-animal bond, which is the mutually beneficial and dynamic relationship between people and animals influenced by behaviors essential to the health and well-being of both. Animals (pets) are often times the most stable part of a family structure. The majority of people with pets consider them a member of the family. Emerging evidence shows interaction with a pet enhances the health and well-being of people, including physical, behavioral, emotional and psychological health. It is important everyone involved in human health care understand and embrace the power and importance of pets on health of people.

Head Tilting

Sep 05, 2016

When a dog tilts its head to the side it's their way of conveying empathy.  It's all part of a dogs ability to pick up on your emotions.  They may not know exactly what is wrong with you , but they know something is up, and so they tilt heir head to show that they are there for you. 

Apparently there is also another reason, which is a lot more conventional.  It helps them hear better.  Tilting their head helps them pick up the location or source of a sound. 

You decide! 

FOOTBALL
