Handling Open food for Pets

I came across some very important information in a newsletter from Care2 Healthy Living this am regarding the handling of pet food. I want to share it with you and advise you to follow their suggestions.

"How long to leave out canned or moist food is a common question from pet owners. Dogs and cats don’t always eat the entire can, and food safety is always questionable when food is left out. Burkholder and Conway weigh in, “The length of time that food can be left out safely depends on a number of variables.

Happy Easter

 Happy Easter to you and to all of your family including the ones with fur, wings, or gills.
Just a reminder to make sure your furry kids, cats and dogs, do not get into the Easter chocolate. It is toxic to animals and can make them very ill. If you are having company, make sure the animals are kept safe and don't escape through open doors as you greet guests.
Lastly, bunnies make great pets and I encourage you to adopt a bunny this Easter but ONLY if you are ready to make it a lifetime commitment.

Dirty Pet Bowls

One of my biggest pet peeves as a professional pet sitter is caring for pets whose food and drinking bowls are filthy. It amazes me how people, who clearly love their furry kids, can allow them to eat and drink out of bowls that are encrusted with old food, pet hair and infested with bacteria and germs. You wouldn't eat or drink from a bowl that wasn't sparkling clean and neither should your dog, cat, bunny rabbit or any other pet you may have. I recently came across this article in Consumer Affairs written by Sarah D.

Professional Pet Sitters Celebration Week



"March 5-11 marks the 23rd annual celebration of Professional Pet Sitters Week™ (PPSW™). Introduced by Pet Sitters International in 1995, PPSW is an annual observance that honors professional pet-care providers, seeks to educate the pet-owning public about the advantages of professional in-home pet care and encourages pet-loving entrepreneurs to explore professional pet sitting as a viable career.".

Great News on Shelters

     Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine recently completed a survey on shelters across the country to try to determine the number of intakes, adoptions, returns to owners and euthanasia performed. The results are incredibly exciting.


“Woodruff and Smith, with the help of the Social Science Research Center’s Wolfgang Frese Survey Research Laboratory, surveyed 413 animal shelters across the country. The survey was limited to brick-and-mortar shelters and those that adopt out dogs.
