This can often lead to thoughts of increasing that love by adding another cat or dog to the home – either for your sake, or because you think your cat or dog would enjoy it. But do they?

Like you, your pets are on their feet most of the day. And like you, that means their feet need some TLC. And while you might spoil yourself with a pedicure or a massage, you know that the simplest way to keep your feet happy and healthy is to keep nails trimmed and feet clean. So what are you doing to help with the basics of pet paw care? Your cats and dogs also need trim nails and clean paws (and will also appreciate a little spoiling of paw care).

Fall is right around the corner, and for many of us, it’s a favorite time of year to get outside. In South Carolina, fall is arguably the best time of year to go on hikes, as you can enjoy warm, clear days without the misery of summer’s humidity. Your dogs are likely also excited about fall hikes, whether it’s their first time out or they’ve been your hiking buddy for decades. For these older dogs, though, you’ll want to keep a few things in mind when hiking this fall.
