“All too soon the carefree, lazy, hazy, days of summer will start to wind down. The time when children, students and adults will soon be going back to school, college or back to their normal routine. You may not look at it that way but when most people have had their different routines over the summer, and then once again the routines also change for us pets”  
“I know you may not think it is that big of a deal for us but remember when you spend the extra time with us in summer, enjoying your company, oh what wondrous moments we are having!”

“Many changes take place in the fall. People are now getting back to their routines and no longer have as much time to be spent with us; we now start to feel sad and lonely. We notice that people now seem less care free and more serious. After having such a wonderful time with happy fun- filled moments spent together, most of us now feel depression, sadness and/or loneliness that envelop our hearts and our minds.”

“When the kids go back to school and summer is over, the attention we were enjoying suddenly drops off to a minimum, our behavior may upset you, try and still spend as much quality time with us as you are able, this will lessen our anxiety levels.”

“Remember: we may not have a physical voice to thank you for your love and kindness, please have love and compassion in your hearts for us because we have unconditional love for you!”

Enjoy the rest of the Summer!

For the new Year!

Happy New Year Everyone!

“This is the time when children, students and adults alike will soon be going back to school, college or having some sort of life change, you may not look at it that way but when most people have had their different routines over the course of the Christmas and Holiday Season then comes once again the routines change for us pets ”

“I know you may not think it is that big of a deal for us but remember when you spend a lot of time with us in the Holiday Season, playing, being with you, chasing the children, being held by you, being loved by you, enjoying your company, snuggling, cuddling and being petted by you, oh what wondrous moments we are enjoying. Then everything changes after the Holiday Season. People are now doing different things and they no longer have as much time to be spent with us, now we start to feel very sad. We also notice that people now seem less care free and more serious in their mannerisms. Sometimes it makes us wonder, did we do something wrong to bring about this complete change in you. After having such a wonderful time with happy fun filled moments spent together, most of us now feel a depression and sadness that envelops our hearts and our minds.”

“It will be easier for us if you could gradually wean the time we are spending with you down the to actual time when life gets back to a normal routine ~ that way it won’t be as hard for us when all the attention we were getting just suddenly drops off to a minimum. Doing this will lesson our Separation Anxiety levels.”

“Don’t forget to tell us and explain things to us, we do understand everything you are saying some people don’t think we do but we assure you we really do, we just don’t have a physical voice to tell you and thank you for kind your words.”

Dog gone antidotes

“Here are a few FLOWER ESSENCES (you can find these in Health Stores) that will help us with the changes: HONEYSUCKLE for adjustment to present circumstances and restores adjustment to present circumstances. WALNUT restores the ability to adapt change. AGRIMONY is for anxiety either mental or physical suffering, digestive upsets, urination or defecation. Or there are also combination BAILEY FLOWER ESSENCES that work very well also these are; TRANQUILITY to calm our nerves and settle us down, SADNESS & LONELINESS we may be experiencing, FEARS if we are afraid of new changes and DEPRESSION & DESPAIR if we cannot seem to pull ourselves out of a rut.” You can put 3-4 drops of each remedy in our water bowls or on a small amount of food 3 xs times a day for 3 week, or follow the instructions on the bottle

“These remedies are also great for people too! We hope everyone has had a fantastic Holiday Season. Remember to hug your pet often, keep smiling and keep the love in your hearts for us because we have unconditional love for you!”

Halloween Safety Tips for pets

Halloween is very stressful for pets, when excited children in costumes continually disruption regular routines with screaming and other loud noises they're not used to being around.

Most pets do not like to have costumes (or clothes) on their bodies, it may be too tight or too loose and bother them to the point where they become agitated.

The safest thing to do is to remove your pet from the front door area so there is no chance for them to get "spooked" and bolt outside and get lost.

Keep all Halloween treats away from pets ~ Chocolate is poisonous, tin foil and wrappers if ingested can cause obstructions which may require expensive surgery to repair!

Keep pets away from pumpkins with lighted candles inside ~ cat especially are curious and a dangerous accident could happen.

*Imagine your pet seeing this at your door! he/she may be afraid and bolt (and become lost forever) or become aggressive and tear into the person wearing it, (you could be in for a lawsuit). Keep them safe and away from the door!

NEVER leave a pet outside during Halloween they may become the victim of a prankster!

Care givers should be ESPECIALLY CAREFUL WITH BLACK CATS ON HALLOWEEN ~ if possible keep them safe inside until morning, some Halloween goers have been know to torture black cats as a Ritual.

Be careful that your pets do not get any left overs from Thanksgiving dinner such as gravy and turkey can upset your pets digestive system, and could even cause (pancreatitis) an inflamed pancreas which can be very painful! be especially careful about turkey bones and other scraps in the garbage that your pet try and steal. Bones can splinter and cause major problems in the bowels and stomach.

Pond water & your pet

Pond water and your pet

did you know that the water in ponds, streams and creeks may be harmful to your pets?
It's true, in untreated water sources such as streams, creeks, rivers and ponds
bacteria & other micro organisms will occur naturally as part of the ecosystem.

The biggest concern about letting your pet drink from these sources
is that could get several diseases from the various lifeforms in the water.
One of the most common water borne disease is a Protozoan Parasite called Giardia 
and that can cause acute diarrhea, and also in humans it is also called Beaver Fever.

Another disease is caused by the Leptospirosis Bacteria. Lepto is spread through
the urine of animals carrying the bacteria. The disease, if left untreated, can cause
kidney and liver failure, and make the animal very ill. This disease is also Zoonotic
meaning it can be passed from animals to humans. 

Therefore care must be taken if pets contract this disease that it does not spread to the family.
Especially prone to infection are young children and elderly adults
as their system may be easily compromised.

We recommend that you avoid letting your pets drink from these water sources, but if you believe your dog or cat would be at risk at contracting Leptospirosis please contact your vet.

                    A bit of information that you might like to know about.  A friend of ours is an entomologist (insect expert), and has been telling them that there is an epidemic of bed bugs now occuring in America.

Recently I have heard on the news that several stores have had to close due to bed bug problems, as well as a complete mall in New Jersey.  He says that since much of our clothing, sheets, towels, etc. now comes from companies outside  of America, even the most expensive stores sell foreign clothing from all over the world  The bed bugs are coming in on the clothing.

He recommends that IF YOU BUY ANY NEW CLOTHING, even under ware and socks, sheets, towels, etc. that you bring them into the house and PUT THEM IN YOUR CLOTHES DRYER FOR AT LEAST 20 MINUTES.  THE HEAT WILL KILL THEM AND THEIR EGGS.  DO NOT PURCHASE CLOTHES AND HANG THEM IN THE CLOSET FIRST. 

It does not matter what the price range is of the clothing, or if the outfit comes from the most expensive store known in the U.S.  They still get shipments from all over the world and the bugs can come in a box of scarves or anything else for that matter.  That is the reason why so many stores, many of them clothing stores have had to shut down in NYC and other places.   All you need is to bring one item into the house that has bugs or eggs and you will wish you had never heard of them before you get rid of them.  He travels all over the country as an advisor to many of these stores, as prevention and after they have the problem.

"Oooooh the pain! a wasp stung my nose!"


Be wary of your pets and stinging insects! Although it may be fun to watch our pets chase a bug across the floor or yard, it could potentially sting your pet. In some cases, we are none the wiser that they have been stung, as they show no signs other than being startled at the time of the sting; in other cases it is more problematic as our pets could have an allergic reaction to the sting and could develop hives on their torso and legs, and even have their muzzle swell causing pain and discomfort.
If you think your pet could be reacting to an insect bite/sting, please call your veterinarian clinic
