Take Your Dog To Work Day

Tomorrow is the famous International "Take Your Dog To Work Day" initiated by Pet Sitters International many years ago.
For those of you who have well-socialized dogs, check with your employer and ask if you may bring your "furry kid" to the job. 1000,s of people around the world will be doing so. Have fun!

Stomatitis

I recently had a consult for a pet sitting job where one of the cats has been diagnosed with Stomatitis.To better be able to care for this kitty I did some research on this illness.The information is worth sharing. 

Stomatitis is is an inflammation of the oral cavity and can be very painful and even life-threatening.It is not that uncommon and can affect all breeds of cats. Symptoms include bad breath, red and inflamed gums and difficulty eating and swallowing. Many cats with Stomatitis have tooth resorption.

Happy Father's Day

Whether your kids have two legs or four, I want to wish all of you father's a very happy Father's Day today. I hope you do something fun with your kids and that you get all of the love and respect you deserve.

Sincerely

Puppies, Vaccinations, and Socialization

I read an excellent article yesterday in "The Whole Dog Journal" written by Pat Miller, a knowledgeable and renowned dog trainer. The topic was vaccinations and socialization.
Most puppy owners are not aware that the critical socialization period for their dog is between 3 to 14 weeks. Since most puppies are not brought home until they are at least 8 weeks, one would hope that the breeders did some good socialization work with the little one before they went to their new home. However, there is still another 6 weeks of prime time to teach the puppy what a wonderful place the world can be.

Schedule Care for Your Pets Early

It's vacation time again and many of you are planning trips out of town for a weekend, a few days or a few weeks. For those of you who can take your "furry kids" with you, bravo. I think that is wonderful.
If however, your cat, dog, bunny, bird, etc. is unable to join the family on their holidays , please be sure to schedule for their care early!

Whether you are planning to have your pet boarded, kenneled, or to have a pet sitter come and look after them, the best ones fill up quickly.
