The Search is on for the Next Toto! Will your pup have its claim to fame?

Snoopy, Lassie, Beethoven, Benji, Old Yeller, Otis, Hooch, Cujo and, of course, Marley.  Sound familiar?  They are just some of the pups that have lit up Hollywood’s screen making us laugh, cry and even terrifying us.  The “old faithfuls” of theatre and t.v. screen have plucked at our heart strings enticing us to get a furry best friend of our own. This brings me to Dorothy’s companion, the Cairn Terrier, who played Toto in “The Wizard of Oz”.  Accompanying Dorothy down the yellow brick road to the Emerald city to find the Wizard,  “Terry” the original terrier, actually made...

Scare Tactic Threatening Dogs Causes Concern in Toronto’s East End

I get that not everyone is a dog lover; heck I’ve been there.  Before meeting my husband poop and scoop was not in my vocabulary.   But, it is so disturbing to discover people threatening to kill other people’s dogs.   Let’s take a step back and remember that whether or not you are a dog person, animal person, or people person, they are all living things that should be respected.  There’s obviously a better way to solve your issues. This little rant is a warm up to the news that came out today about an individual at 20 Leslie St.,...

It’s Tick and Flea Season – What You Should Know to Protect Your Dog

Remember as a kid getting checked for lice in school?  Am I dating myself?  Do they still do that? School nurses, parent volunteers and those little wooden sticks that would riffle through your hair to check for little critters.  I never had lice as a child, but from what I hear it’s a pain to deal with – a regimen of shampoo, combing and picking out nits (the eggs) by hand for three weeks!  And it’s not just the hair – you’d have to wash clothes, bedding and blankets just in case they had jumped onto other breading grounds...

Is healthypets.io the Next Big Thing in Pet Health Care?

Have you ever used TeleHealth Ontario? It’s a great resource that allows nurses to triage you health needs over the phone and give you advice and direction on those pesky things that come up in life that makes you say “Hey, what do I if…?” Three years ago when I became a mom for the first time, my family physician, obstetrician, emergency doctors and nurses and other new moms recommended TeleHealth. When you’re a newbie everything seems like a big question mark, mostly because you never had to think of it before or have never been put in that...

Why an Annual Trip to the Vet is Important

You’ve heard me go on about the importance in keeping up with your health and making those yearly trips to the doctor.   Medicine, historically, has been about treating what ails you but in recent years it’s shifted towards prevention. Makes sense, just don’t get sick in the first place. I can get on board with that, but the big question now becomes, well, how do I do that? I don’t know all the answers but I do know that there are people who have some answers, like your GP, specialists, homeopaths and my mother.   Point being you don’t have...
