Accidents happen, especially if you have a young and active dog in the family. We cover some of the common household dangers and hopefully help you avoid an unnecessary trip to the emergency animal hospital because of an accident.
Usually when a dog needs emergency treatment, it’s hard to think clearly and make the right decisions, especially if it is the middle of the night. Be prepared by having the name and number of an emergency animal hospital stuck on the fridge, or keyed into your cell phone. This can save vital time in an emergency situation.

It’s wise to read up on bird care before you get a new pet bird, such as a cockatiel, to learn what you should be feeding to ensure a balanced and healthy diet. It’s also a great idea to talk to a veterinarian with experience in proper bird care to get full information on what to feed your cockatiel.
A Healthy Diet for Cockatiels Should Include the Following Foods
A healthy diet for cockatiels should include a mixture of well-balanced pellets and a wide variety of healthy human foods such as vegetables, fruits, whole grain breads and pastas, cooked, lean meats, and cultured milk products (like yogurt).

The Shiba Inu dog breed is the smallest of Japan’s native dog breeds, and also one of the most striking. An alert and agile breed used to navigating mountainous terrains, the Shiba Inu makes for a great watchdog and companion.
These beautiful dogs were originally bred to flush out birds and other small game animals, but today they are typically found as companion dogs. There are 5 dog breeds native to Japan in addition to the Shiba Inu: Akita, Kishu, Hokkaido, Kai, and Shikoku. While similar in appearance to the Akita, the Shiba Inu is much smaller in stature. The Shiba Inu has many wonderful characteristics and a long history, and it is one of the few ancient dog breeds still found throughout the world today. Read More

This can be done before or after a kitten is sold but most shelters have a spaying policy before they find a cat or kitten a new home. A cat spay or neuter should be scheduled after a full physical exam with a vet, to help ensure your pet’s health prior to surgery. Read More
