I have a lot of pets – a lot. Naming numbers is slightly embarrassing; suffice it to say that they're a needy bunch but I love them all – although I might have a slight bias toward the dachshund that I inherited when I got together with my partner. He thinks he's a baby and I happen to agree. So pets are an expensive expenditure anyway; when you tend to spoil them, they're even more so. I wouldn't have it any other way and I know a lot of people agree with me. The good news is that if you … Read More »

It should come as no surprise that while some industries in America are still suffering from the tail of the recession, the multibillion-dollar pet industry is doing just fine…even though the housing market is still considerably weak and there is high employment abound.
When it comes to spending money on their pets Americans are not stingy. Last year saw a record number in sales. Wait for it…$55 billion (yea that’s a ‘b’).
Part of that has to do with the fact pet owners are beginning to pay attention to what goes into little Fido’s mouth. These days you can … Read More »
If you’re a pet owner, you know how pricey your furry (or feathery, or scaly) friend can be. In the course of a year, you’ll spend hundreds on foods, medications, treatments, vet visits, leashes, toys, and maybe even the occasion parka. I’m a pet owner too, so I know how this all goes down. And I know when I see a big online sale on pet supplies, I jump at the opportunity to stock up now and save in the long run.
PetSmart happens to be having just such a sale right now, so what are you waiting for? Here’s … Read More »

With both a small dog and a new baby in the house, how I clean that house has become an important matter. Is it safe to use bleach or ammonia? Are Swiffers really pet friendly? Can the laundry detergent irritate my daughter’s skin? Keeping things clean is an area of concern if you’re confused about what’s safe and what could be harmful.
For the most part, organic cleaning products are a safe bet. Most products labeled as “green,” are cutting out the harmful ingredients that can cause reactions in babies and pets. A … Read More »
Keeping your family pet healthy should be a year-long endeavor. Good care all year long can help your dog or cat live a longer life, cut down on expensive vet bills in the long run and make for a much happier home environment.
It’s true, however, that some pet care items can get expensive. And with so many versions on the market and so many different “must-haves,” it’s hard to tell what you really need. Thankfully, beyond healthy food and clean water, dogs and cats don’t require that much year-round maintenance. Here’s what you need:
Dog or Cat … Read More »
With April upon us, and your thoughts on the pending beach season, you might’ve started considering what gear you’ll need for the summer. Just as we load ourselves up on swimwear, towels, sunglasses, and sunscreen, our pets need some consideration as well.

This summer, remember to keep your pet nice and cool, well hydrated, and well leashed or harnessed. Travel water bowls, sturdy leashes, and some way to give Fido some shade are … Read More »
