January Message

Hello fellow dog lovers!

We have enjoyed the recent holidays, sharing many of them with your furry family members. Already, we are well into January and getting busy again. Our beautiful Florida weather may be tempting you go on a cruise or take a trip to the Keys or the Everglades. We will be happy to watch your dog(s)and give them a loving home away from home while you are away.

I am sitting in mu backyard, watching the dogs as they play together and knowing I have the best possible job!

We have just completed 20 years of operating Pampered pooch and in celebration of that,we have decided to offer a 20% discount during the month of January to all our current clients. So get your requests in as soon because, as you know, we are limited to how many dogs we may have at a given time./p>

Thanks so much for trusting us with your precious family members! We hope to see you soon. Just call us at 239-939-4027/p>

That bond is understandable given the way they aid our mental health - from their ability to lessen relationship stress to softening bad days at work and more, the average dog gets their owner through five (4.83) stressful events every week.

The results emerged from Link AKC, creators of a smart collar for dogs, and pinpointed the mental, physical and emotional health bonuses of dog ownership. The study also found that many owners say their pet genuinely aided their ability to get over a breakup or handle the death of a loved one.

Experts raise concerns over raw meat diets for cats and dogs

Experts are warning dog and cat owners to be aware of the risks associated with feeding their pets raw meat-based diets (RMBDs), instead of the more conventional dry or canned pet foods.

In the Vet Record today, a team of researchers based in The Netherlands say these diets may be contaminated with bacteria and parasites, and as such may pose a risk to both animal and human health.

The study is published in the journal Veterinary Pathology.
