Pet Care Tip of the Day

When checking for ticks on your pet, be sure to look at the bottoms of their feet, between the paw pads, the back of the head and neck, under their ears, and behind/under their front legs, as I’ve found that ticks seem to like these areas most of all.

Q: Can dogs be allergic to cats?

A: Yes. Recent studies have shown that dogs may not just dislike cats, but be allergic to them as well!

Pet Care Tip of the Day

When you give your dog a new toy, be sure to keep an eye on your dog to make sure the toy is not dangerous for it. Many toys can be swallowed, chewed down to size, ripped apart, or choked on, so always be sure to get toys sized for your dog and replace toys when they get ripped up.

Spotlight on Dogs: The Basset Hound

Basset hounds originated in France and were originally bred to hunt rabbits. The basset hound is a member of the Hound Group and weighs between 40 and 60 lbs. In French, “basset” literally means “low”, and basset hounds certainly live up to their name, being just 14 inches tall at the shoulders.

Basset hounds tend to be laid-back, friendly, and happy dogs. They are very loyal and enjoy the company of their person/people.

Basset hounds almost always get along well with other dogs. Basset hounds can be nice to small pets and cats as long as the basset was not trained to hunt–if they have, they may chase cats or small pets. Still, don’t leave your basset hound alone with pet rabbits or rodents, as the basset hound could accidently hurt the pet while trying to make friends with it.

Basset hounds can have back problems because they are so long. They are also prone to obesity, intervertebral disc disease, OCD, vWD, foreleg lameness, entropion, gastric torsion, ectropion, otitis externa,  glaucoma, and CTP.  Basset hounds usually live between 8 and 12 years, but this depends greatly on their health and diet.

Pet Care Tip of the Day

While pet store puppies may be cute, most of them come from puppy mills. Puppy mills are not concerned about raising good puppies, but rather making money. The puppies are raised in filthy conditions and often end up with diseases or health problems.

If you are wanting a dog, an animal shelter, someone who’s dog had babies, a friend, or a quality breeder is the best bet.

Pet Care Tip of the Day

If you want to give your dog something fun to do, try filling a Kong Toy
with peanut butter and giving it to your dog. Your dog will have a lot of  fun getting the peanut butter out of the toy. Don’t do this if your dog is allergic to peanuts.
