Pit Bull Hero

Mar 9, 2013
Steph Skardal

The Pit Bull is really not a separate breed but one of several, or even a combination of two or more.  Because they have been used and abused as fighting animals, some communities have banned them.  But people who really know these dogs will tell you what wonderful pets they can be.

Keeping an animal as a pet brings with it certain responsibilities.  One of those is to make sure your furry family member is safe and protected.

Pet Arithmetic

Humane Society of the United States

Early in life we learn  to count and to do simple arithmetic, but there's nothing simple about counting the animals - dogs, cats, and even rabbits - who are victims of the pet overpopulation problem.

Pets, especially dogs, have a natural smile - but it looks even better when they can show off their pearly whites!

Thinking about getting a cat as a pet?  You need to stop by the cat show, where you can see beautiful representatives of many different breeds and talk to their owners to find out which one would be best for you!

Dog Flu

If you have had the flu, you know how bad you feel.  You also know it can easily turn into something more serious (such as pneumonia) if you don't take care of yourself.  Canine influenza can be just as dangerous for your dog - maybe even more so because your pet probably has no natural immunity to it!

Weight Loss Program

Being overweight is just as bad for your pet as it is for you, and for all the same reasons - it puts a strain on an animal's joints, heart and liver; it increases the risk of diabetes and other diseases; and it shortens an animal's life.  A chubby pet may be more cuddly, but a trim pet will probably be healthier and live longer.

Parade, pets - who could resist?  The Beverly Hills Pet Care Foundation is hoping everyone takes notice and gets the message to adopt a homeless pet, and to have all pets spayed or neutered!

One year ends, another begins - time to celebrate!  Just make sure your best friend is safe and protected so you can both enjoy the new year together.

There may be a reason why we humans like to include our animal friends in the Christmas celebration.  After all, they were included from the very beginning!

Pet owners love to share the holidays with their animal companions, but we have to be careful.  Some of our holiday traditions may not be pet-friendly!

If you're traveling during the holidays, one of the first decisions is what to do with your pet.  You can take it with you, board it, or have someone come to your home to care for it.  Once you decide what's best for you and your best friend, you can relax knowing both of you will have a good holiday.
