Pets have made our lives more bearable and more enjoyable for centuries. If you ask any pet owner, you will likely be told that pets are not just like family, they are family. When we think of family, we usually think of people who are closest to us. People who we would care for in sickness as well as in health. For so many pet owners, this is the way they think about their pets.
When a member of your family gets sick, you want to do whatever it takes to make them well again. You take them to as competent a doctor as you can find, follow the instructions on how to care for them when they come home and do your best to make them as comfortable as possible. The sane is true for pets.
Right now, there are roughly 46 million dogs who are owned by a household and almost 39 million cats. There is much to do in terms
You take very good care of your pet. You make sure to give them plenty of treats, shower them with attention and always take their physical health into consideration. When your pet is struggling with an ongoing health issue, however, it’s imperative to skip the over-the-counter medication and seek out veterinary clinical diagnostics. Even a minor issue can compound over time and become a severe health problem, putting the life of your furry friend at risk. From cats to dogs to horses, each animal has their own unique physical ailments and treatment methods. Knowing what you’re in for will go a long way in keeping them healthy and both of you happy.

Our pets are our family. They warm our hearts, bolster our lives and bring us endless joy. When they become sick or injured, it’s our duty to get them back up to speed with whatever resources are available to us. If you are taking care of older cats or older dogs? Even more so. To reduce stress in both your life and the life of your pet, consider investing in pet insurance. Just like our insurance, it’s a way to provide your pet the stability and resources they need to continue living a healthy and happy life. Let’s talk about health care for animals and what, exactly, older dogs and younger dogs alike need to feel good.

Millions of people across the country own pets. While cats and dogs are the most popular pets, there is a wide variety of preferences among pet owners. From ferrets to horses to snakes to chinchillas, Americans love their pets. But as any pet owner can attest, the animals that an outsider might see as “just a pet” is often considered to be much more for the individual or family housing the animal. For many pet owners, that critter is another member of the family. This is why veterinary care and the availability of veterinary laboratory services are so crucial.
Veterinary diagnostics for thorough pet health care
For owners who want the best for their pets, finding the perfect veterinary clinic can feel just as important as finding the right medical doctor for the hum
Owning a horse is a lot of responsibility. However, it can also teach a lot of responsibility to a younger child. Children who live on or near acreages of lands with farms often wait for the day they will finally own their own horse. With the holidays coming up quickly, many of these families will gift a horse as a holiday gift. Owning a horse can be a positive thing, as long as they are ready for it. They often come with a lot of unexpected costs. Consider the following additional costs of a horse, before purchasing one for a holiday gift.
Feeding costs Horses eat a lot of food. If you are familiar with pet ownership with a cat or a dog, the food consumption rate of horses is often much higher. Some horses may also require special food to prevent digestion or health problems. Hor
So your child has been begging you for a dog for years and the time has finally come where you are even considering it. Her little face would be just adorable on Christmas morning when she opens the lid to that box and out pops a puppy. However, you do need to think past Christmas morning when it comes to taking care of a pet. As much as we love to see our children light up with joy, there’s a real responsibility that is required when taking care of pets; dogs in particular. If you are getting an animal to help teach your child responsibility and how to care for someone, then that’s great but you should know it’s going to be a lot of work. From veterinary diagnostics to food safety and vet visits, there’s a lot than goes in to this. Here are a few things to consider before getting your new pet.
Almost every American has encountered a dog at one point or another. For most of us, dogs are “normal”, run of the mill pets. They have nothing in common with horses, who people unfamiliar with equines — that is, a large chunk of the population — find borderline exotic. Horses are livestock, big and often used for actual work; whereas most of the time, dogs are “luxury” companion pets, bred simply to be our good friends. They aren’t similar to each other — or are they? Those of us who’ve owned horses and dogs alike can attest that the two animals have much in common. Both are remarkably social. While dogs are descended from wolves, who live in packs, horses are known to be drawn into herds. Dogs find companionship in humans great, but they love it even more when they have another dog to be “f
There are not many pet owners who would consider their beloved animal not a part of the family. It does not take long after the addition of a pet into the home for that furry, feathered, or scaled little friend to become a bona fide family member. Every family is different, just as every pet is different, but it all boils down to the connection that is made with the pet within the family. And every pet deserves the best, which most pet owners are eager to provide. This not only includes endless love and snuggles, but also the best in animal care and pet wellness plans.

To say that Americans love their dogs is truly an understatement — like, completely. Dogs aren’t just animals that people own. They’re not even really pets. They’re literally part of the family, with many dog parents going as far as to consider their dogs like children. For example, did you know that it’s estimated that as many as one millions dogs in the United States are named as the primary beneficiary in their owner’s will? That means in the event of their owner’s death — whether natural or untimely — the dog would get what’s left of their estate and their assets. Talk about bow wow wow yippy yo yippy yay!
And as man’s best friend, man puts a lot of time, effort, and money into keeping their tail wagging best friend happy, healthy, and well taken care of. Each year, Americans co
It’s safe to say that the internet has revolutionized nearly every aspect of modern day life, from the way people to work, to the way people buy groceries, and even the way people date. Take for example the fact that the overwhelming majority of Americans — 91% — engage in social media on daily basis in order to connect with family, friends, professional connections, and even to catch up on the news.
The use of the internet has completely changed — or leveled — the playing field in terms of dating, with roughly 57% of the world’s total population having used a dating sight. As such, it should come as no surprise that pet owners are taking advantage of the accessibility and convenience of the internet in terms of cat and dog dating.
Huh…? Wait…hold up. Now pet dating sites are a thing too?
