It’s that time of year again! Time to start thinking about gifts and giving, about finding the perfect thing to show your loved ones how much you care. For many people, this is the time when they discuss getting a pet. What could be more adorable than a child unwrapping a box and having a kitten pop out? And wouldn’t your significant other light up to find a puppy wearing a bow under the tree?
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). So how can you do this care at home?
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.
It may come as no surprise to hear that not every kid enjoys going to the dentist. And while dentists’ offices often go through a lot of effort to make their office feel fun and welcoming to children, it can still be a place that causes anxiety and even fear in some children.
For those of us who think of our dogs as family members, it’s tempting to take them with us everywhere we go. But before you load your dog into the car for a trip to the grocery, make sure you follow a few key steps to ensure the ride is safe for your dog.
If you’ve spent any time outdoors in South Carolina, odds are you’ve come across a snake or two. And while snakes cause many of us to freak out, in reality, most snakes are harmless and will do their best to stay away from your dogs and out of your way.
