Porky and Buddy Pet Health – The Dangers of Antifreeze

Porky and Buddy

My neighbor got all upset with me yesterday because he saw me putting antifreeze in my car in my driveway and a little bit spilled on the ground and I didn’t have time to clean it up as I was late for work. He started yelling at me about antifreeze killing pets. The upshot was that I cleaned it up to make him stop and I was late for work. Why would an animal lick up antifreeze? Is he just a nut bucket?

Porky and Buddy Pet Health – Some Adoption Policies Don’t Make Sense

Porky and Buddy

I am so annoyed I can hardly think straight. I went to a shelter to adopt a puppy this morning and found that they had two puppies up for adoption, brothers. So, I thought what the heck, I’ll adopt both of them! But when I told this to the adoption person she said they have a policy against adopting more that one sibling puppy at a time! That seemed so stupid to me that I just left!

Porky and Buddy Pet Health – Helping Homeless Cats

Porky and Buddy

Here it is November with snow and a smallish cat just showed up on my back porch a few days ago.

I have a wonderful black lab named Barney, about nine months old, and I think he needs a friend. I work during the day and play with him a lot in the morning and when I get home, but he is alone during the day. The problem is that my landlord will only allow one dog, so I am thinking maybe I should get him a cat to play with. Do you think that’s a good idea?

Porky and Buddy Pet Health – Beware Of Pet Store Claims

Porky and Buddy

I was in a pet store the other day, They had the most gorgeous Golden Retriever puppies for sale, about 7 weeks old.

What do you think?

Buddy and Porky Pet Health – A Word About Halloween

Porky and Buddy

We are sorry to be grumpy, but Halloween is coming up and we know that a lot of you really love to dress up and eat lots of candy and put candles in pumpkins and string orange lights and that kind of thing. Here’s the grumpy part. Most pets sort of hate it. Sure they like finding candy in weird places and trying to scarf it up before you can catch them, but then they get sick from all those sweets and you have vomit in strange colors all over your carpet.
