If you Got a Pet, shouldn’t you Get a Vet?

As a family gal, I am always concerned about keeping my family healthy. I make sure we visit the doctor for our physical and are getting our teeth checked at the dentist, I try to keep the meals I make as healthy as possible and get the family out for fresh air. One of the biggest considerations in getting a Bernese Mountain Dog was to have an excuse to go for a walk every day and having a pal for my daughter to run around the yard with. Being in health care, (shout out to all my Respiratory Therapy...

Can Dogs Eat Chocolate Covered Almonds?

For the dog connoisseur, this may seem like a very obvious answer and even if you already know the golden rule – no chocolate for dogs – they may sneek a few when you are not looking.

If you’re political, maybe you enjoy a good protest down at Queen’s Park. But while you’re out enjoying the sites and sounds of “We the North”, it would be nice to treat our furry BFF’s to a grand social occasion that speaks to them. The founders of Woofstock had just that in mind. Woofstock is the largest outdoor festival for dogs...

Dog Diseases – What You Should Know About Degenerative Myelopathy

Today I want to talk about Degenerative Myelopathy (DM).  This particular large breed neurologic disease strikes a chord with me because our beloved River, a golden Labrador retriever, passed away from this debilitating disease.  River was a good looking boy who stood tall and proud.  So we were saddened when his lively and charismatic nature slowly buckled to a tired pup that laid down most of the day. That’s why I want to make sure you know what to look for if you see your best friend showing classic signs and symptoms of degenerative myelopathy. What is DM? DM...
