Training myth: a wagging tail is a sign that all is well with my dog or cat

Behavior is a difficult thing to read in some pets – a wagging tail can be a sign of happiness or it can be a sign telling you to “watch out.” More goes into body language than just a tail wag.

In cats, wagging tails can actually be predatory behavior. Observe your cat when she’s stalking a toy – the tail will slowly move from side to side. Some cats will flick the tips of their tails when…

What is the biggest myth about pet food: AAFCO approved means it’s good for your pet.

Most readers of this blog will look at the package of their pet food and will see the words “meets AAFCO standards.”  It is very common for people to think that means the food is healthy for their dogs and cats. It is shocking to find out pet food is just a means of disposing of feed ingredients that are not acceptable for humans to eat – rather than just throwing it out.

Here’s a prime example: not one…

I have an older dog who has recently become very cranky. She is normally such a sweet dog, it’s not like her to snap at the family. What could be going on?

Anytime there is a behavior change in our dogs, or cats, it’s a signal that there’s a problem going on. Because they don’t have little red lights telling us where the problem is we have to try to figure it out, and they have to try…

The answer depends on what has already been done.

Has your kitten been dewormed? If not, you might get that done with a dewormer that gets hook, whip, and round worms. Most dewormers at the pet store only deworm against…

Help I locked my keys in the car and my dog is in there! What do I do?

If you feel your pet has ingested something that is causing a reaction, (body tremors, excessive panting) will giving them activated charcoal help?

So, part of the toxins going out through the bile are involved in fat digestion and absorption. This means the toxic products can come back into the…
