Porky and Buddy Pet Health – Why Do Dogs React Differently To Snow?

Porky and Buddy

I have two dogs. One of them, Amanda, loves to go out in the winter, no matter how cold and she runs around happily in the snow until I call her in.

She wants me to cut that down by a quarter and cut out all treats. They’ll starve. What do you think?

Buddy and Porky Pet Health – Are Your Pets Ready For Holidays?

Porky and Buddy

This is the time of year that we usually issue warnings about all the horrible things that can happen to your pets over the holidays. If it’s not poinsettias to worry about (which it is not) then it’s mistletoe (which it is) or chocolate, or grapes or tinsel (yes to all). But you can just go online to any reputable animal welfare site, we like the ASPCA, and read all those depressing and dire warnings. We’re not saying you shouldn’t read up about them. We’re just saying, let’s have fun instead!
