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?
When’s the last time you took your pet to the vet? Your dog or cat’s health is just as finicky as any person’s, with diseases such as heartworm and hip dysplasia able to crop out of nowhere and seriously affect the physical and emotional health of your furry friend. Caring for your pet means staying on top of their daily needs and taking preventative measures to prevent these more extreme conditions and keep them happy and healthy. Spaying and neutering your pet accomplishes the dual goal of preventing unwanted litters as well as circumventing common illnesses associated with hormones and certain behaviors. Let’s take a look at frequent health conditions and pet owner tips to help you stay on the ball.
We love our dogs. They make us smile. They keep us from being lonely. Some of them are even the primary recipients in our wills! But despite our obvious connection to our dogs, the fact is, they can’t talk to us, and we can’t talk to them. This means that sometimes, when our dogs are in pain or uncomfortable, we don’t know! Fortunately, there are a few things you can do for your dog beyond the obvious vet visits and medications that will leave them feeling not just functional, but comfortable and beautiful to boot.
1. Invest in pet shampoo and other natural pet products.
Natural pet shampoo isn’t an extravagance. It’s a vital addition to your dog
We all love our pets. Over one-third of homeowners have a dog. Chances are if you’re in that third, you’d do just about anything to keep your canine companion healthy and happy. The challenge to doing so is realizing not all dog breeds are alike. Your big love muffin doesn’t have the same care needs as your neighbor’s chihuahua. From finding a veterinarian for large animals whom you trust to proper nutrition and training, here are the five most important things you can do for your large or giant dog:
- Proper nutrition
Good health begins with proper nutrition. For big dogs, this is particularly important. Large dog breeds have specific nutrition requirements and not meeti
The more you know about the blog, the more you can harness its mighty power.
That might sound a bit silly, but it’s true: Blogging is used by nearly 40% of companies in the United States and it’s especially popular with small businesses. That’s because blog posts tend to be written in a more informal style, engaging readers and holding their attention for longer periods of time. After a while — really after only a few posts — blogs can charm web users, and once they’re charmed, they’re more likely to remember that they liked the content and want to come back for more.
Writers love this. Graphic designers who create gripping infographics also love this. Web developers who design the pages love this as well.
But nobody loves blogging more than businesses themselves. It’s the kind of loyalty that’s needed wh
Did you know, according to Smithsonian Magazine, cats were first domesticated approximately 12,000 years ago? At that time, our feline friends were extremely useful for protecting our food from mice and other pests. However, these days they are much more commonly our friends and companions than our furred sentinels.
It is estimated by Petfinder that over 57% of American households keep a cat or dog as a house pet. Millions of cats snuggle up to their human owners every night across the United States. 90% of pet owners consider their pets to be actual members of their family. Unfortunately, just like our human family members, cats can become ill and pass away as a result of fetal feline diseases and other common problems.
If your feline friend is acting unusual and showing symptoms of il
