The temperature is rising and as Summer approaches people and dogs are looking forward to getting wet. Water can be a great source of fun for you and your dog, but before you take your pooch out for a paddle, make sure you know how to keep things safe.
You have just made the decision that you are going to add a new member to your household, but what do you need to start off?
Spring is here and with it arrives a few things to be on the lookout for with our four-legged friends.Here are 9 Springtime pet safety issues to look out for.
We all know that cats are nocturnal by nature. Great for them, not so great for us. So how do we combat nighttime noise to catch some zzzz’s and make that morning meeting? We’ve put together a few tips for you to try at home.

Living in the Lower Mainland means that many of us live in apartments and condos. Whether we live in studio apartments or penthouse condos, we like dwelling with our favorite furry felines. And this is great, especially since having a pet is known to be psychologically beneficial for us owners. Additionally, cats are among the best suited of all companion animals to living their lives entirely inside of an apartment or other small abode. Why? Simply put, they are safer. With the wide variety of high quality food and toy options available, cats don’t need to be outside to live a full and enjoyable life. With the proper healthcare and TLC, kitties are perfectly happy indoors.
Cats are believed to have descended from a small desert cat native to North Africa, and as descendants of a desert animal, they drink little and conserve water by producing concentrated urine. Cat’s bodies are made up of about 70% water, andtheir desert-dwelling roots mean they’ve evolved to obtain their water requirements almost entirely from the moisture content in their food. The natural prey that cats would catch in the wild (e.g. small rodents, birds, amphibians, and insects)contain about 70-75% water when freshly killed. However, cats can become dehydrated when the water content of their food drops to less than 61%.
Cats are territorial animals and scratching is actually one of the ways that cats mark their territory.
From fierce felines to tubby tabbies and cuddly kittens, we in BC love the little cat-astrophes in lives. While the web is full of cat content, we want to see the purrfect companions that live right here in the Lower Mainland.
Winter can take its toll on our animal friends as well. Exposure to cold air, snow, ice and ice-melting products can lead to dry itchy skin and cracked paws.
With the holiday season we, the pet owners, like to decorate with or are given as presents plants associated with the season. Unfortunately these wonderful holiday additions to our homes are not always the best choices for our animals. Following you will find a listing of common holiday plants and what effects they can have on your animal.
