The soaring fresh food trend, is it worth the cost?

We had the opportunity to attend the seminar “The Science and Nutritional Literacy Behind the Fresh Food Movement” by Dr. Karen Becker (practicing Proactive Integrative Veterinarian) and Dr. Donna Raditic (professor for both the Nutrition and Integrative Medicine Services at University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine).
The Fresh Food Movement is definitely strong.

Cool Tips for Pet Summer Safety

We all love spending the long, sunny days of summer outdoors with our furry companions, but being overeager in hot weather can spell danger. To prevent your pet from overheating, take these simple precautions provided by ASPCA experts.

Rubbing your dog the right way!

Why do otherwise good dogs bite the people they love? Fear and pain are common triggers. For today, we’re going to focus on one very preventable aspect of that: discomfort with restraint and body handling.
