“A lot of veterinarians have told me matter-of-factly that they still don’t use painkillers for procedures that we know are painful. They think that dogs and cats don’t need it or that feeling pain after surgery is good because it keeps them from moving around too much. But research has shown that pets who are in less pain heal faster, sleep better, and don’t move around as much.” —
“We just don’t realize how determined our pets are to eat the things they shouldn’t,” says Dr. Tina Wismer, DVM, medical director for the .

Pets are not “mini people.” Animals react to substances in food and medicines completely differently than people do, so just because something doesn’t make a person sick doesn’t mean it is okay for a pet. Also, most pets are much smaller than people, so what may seem like a harmless amount of a food or drug can make them ill.

Wild Things Pets is software to easily design and print patterns for pet clothing, hats, and accessories. All patterns draft and print to your pet's measurements and design settings. As we prepare to winterize our garage, cabin, or house, keep in mind that there are some more dangerous rat poisons to pick from than others. Always make sure to place these poisonous baits in areas where your pet can’t reach them (i.e., high up on shelves, hidden behind work spaces, etc.). Currently there are four separate categories of rodenticides available for general use. Each has a different and unique mechanism of action. This results in four different sets of clinical signs in both the target rodent population and our curious pets who might consume them. All of these rodenticides also pose the potential for “relay toxicity”– in other words, if your dog eats a whole bunch of dead mice poisoned by rodenticides, they can get the secondary effects from this. This is most commonly seen in birds of prey (i.e., raptors), so we generally recommend avoiding them in the first place!As you plan your road trips this summer, be sure to consider your pet’s car safety before pulling out of the driveway. With states like Hawaii, Connecticut, Illinois, and Maine banning motorists from driving with their pets in their laps and that would require pets to wear seatbelts, now’s the time to investigate proper car restraints. Here are some options for your cat or dog.Like any other pet owners we love to pamper our furry friends, but of course within our limits. But what kind of attention do pets of the rich and famous receive? Apparently some wealthy pets live better lives that most of us will ever dream to. They’ve got it all, from designer clothes, diamond collars to luxurious beds and accessories. Look on in disbelief at some of the most ridiculously expensive products for pets ever made.Raw/Undercooked Meat, Eggs and Bones
Raw meat and raw eggs can contain bacteria such as Salmonella and E. coli that can be harmful to pets and humans. Raw eggs contain an enzyme called avidin that decreases the absorption of biotin (a B vitamin), which can lead to skin and coat problems. Feeding your pet raw bones may seem like a natural and healthy option that might occur if your pet lived in the wild. However, this can be very dangerous for a domestic pet, who might choke on bones, or sustain a grave injury should the bone splinter and become lodged in or puncture your pet’s digestive tract.Why should your dog have to sleep on that old blanket your Grandma knitted when you can afford a pet bed that costs more than some people make in a year? Because he’s just a dog, that’s why. Seriously, we love our pets but do they really need a flamboyant bed styled after an 18th century French Rosewood commode? For as expensive as this custom bed is, to our surprise you still have to supply your own fabric.
