The Art of Pet Grooming

Drowning in dog hair? Coughing up cat fur? You’re not alone! Pet grooming is important, especially now that spring is coming, and our furry friends leave more and more bits of themselves everywhere they go. It’s up to us as responsible pet owners to keep them clean, well-groomed and free of troublesome mats and tangles. Of course, that can be easier said than done – especially if you have a fluffy cat or dog (or one who particularly adores mud puddles).

Pumpkin and Your Pet: What are the Benefits?

This time of year, pumpkin and the holidays go hand in hand. When I think of pumpkin, however, I think of a powerhouse of nutritional benefits — not only for humans, but for our furry companions as well.

Pumpkin is packed full of beta-carotene and other phytonutrients, such as lutein, flavonoids and cryptoxanthin. These natural chemicals help ward off disease and keep the body functioning properly. The bright orange fruit is also a great source of vitamins A, C, E and B, as well as minerals and fiber.

How Do I Choose My Pet's Food?

Choosing the right diet for your pet is one of the most important things that you can offer them. Unfortunately it is not a simple question, even for a healthy pet. There are literally thousands of different pet foods with new ones every week. Even the ones we know well get their formulations changed periodically and we have no idea when. Feeding options have become complicated by a mixture of science, hype, marketing and convenience. There is so much we do not know about nutrition.
