Keep Your Pet Cool this Summer

Summertime is here and along with backyard barbecues, your pet’s summer days are probably filled with yard games, hikes and lounging at the pool. What a life. But the heat, sun, chlorinated water and overexertion can take a toll on your pet and you need to monitor their activity and make sure they stay cool and hydrated.

Exercise to Keep Your Pet Fit and Healthy

We all want healthy and happy pets, but all too often Fido and Twinkle adopt the bad habits of their owners and instead of being active and physically fit they become couch potatoes. It’s our duty as responsible pet owners to make sure that our pets get the proper amount of daily exercise to keep them fit and physically at their best.

Today we’re going to turn our attention to special diets related to allergies or being overweight.
