Henry and I had the pleasure of meeting Donna at the Houston Pet Expo this month! What an amazing, energetic, kind soul. Henry met her Saturday, but stayed home Sunday because he didn't feel well. I bought her book and she autographed it to her new friend...he was thrilled when I gave it to him! Find her on Facebook and get her book! You will be glad you did....warning...you can't put it down once you start reading!

Thought I'd address a couple of comments made on my page. First of all...the Pet Pedi Sock is designed to prevent pain for long haired dog breeds. Solving a problem most pet parents are not even aware of because they don't groom their own dogs. In no way do I intend to hurt the grooming business. I'd rather have an honest person telling me an issue, than assuming I know it when I ask to have Simone's nails ground instead of clipped. I've had Groomers verbally attack me because this will slow ...Read Full Post »

3. What’s the difference between a food allergy and food intolerance?
Food allergies are true allergies and show the characteristic symptoms of itching and skin problems associated with canine and feline allergies. Food intolerances can result in diarrhea or vomiting and do not create a typical allergic response. Food intolerances in pets would be similar to people who get diarrhea or an upset stomach from eating spicy or fried foods. Fortunately, both food intolerances and allerg...Read Full Post »

1. What is a food allergy?
Food allergies account for about 10% of all the allergies seen in dogs. It is the third most common cause after flea bite allergies and atopy (allergies resulting from skin contact with environmental allergens as well as inhaled allergens). Food allergies affect both males and females and neutered and intact animals equally, and they can show up at any age. Many animals with food allergies also have concurrent inhalant or contact allergies. (Foster and Smith)Read Full Post »

Perianal fistulas are chronic and progressive lesions that occur around the anus in dogs. Deep and draining ulcers form, which are painful. The disease may also be referred to as "anal furunculosis."
What causes perianal fistulas?
