Natural Flea Treatment

Spring-the rebirth of long dormant vibrant colors, the aromatic smell of flowers, the call of the blue jay, lush vegetables on the vine, fruiting trees. It is a time when nature pours forth all of her glory and beauty. It is also the dawn of a new season-flea season.

Tracheal Collapse in Dogs

The trachea, or windpipe, is made up of several cartilage rings joined together by ligaments. Tracheal Collapse, or Dynamic Airway Disease, is a condition whereby weakening of the cartilage rings causes collapse of the trachea and a dynamic reduction of the tracheal diameter. The narrowing of the trachea means that airflow, and therefore breathing, becomes more difficult in affected dogs.

How To Pick A Cat

Choosing a cat for the first time is a truly wonderful experience. Sometimes it's easy; your future pet may even "choose" you. Maybe she's a stray who shows up on your doorstep, or a kitten you find all alone in your yard. Perhaps his welcoming paw reaches out through cage bars as you wander the local animal rescue. In a single moment, your life changes for the better-you’ve found your perfect furry friend. Picking a feline companion on your own may not be as easy, but it's just as much fun.
