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!
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!
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.
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.
