Buddy & Porky’s Pet Health: An Easter Bunny?

Dear Porky and Buddy,

Easter is coming up and I am thinking about getting a baby bunny for my kids. My six year old has dropped hints about it , and I think they would really enjoy having one. Do you have any tips about bunny care?

Buddy & Porky’s Pet Health: Surviving Your Owner

Dear Porky and Buddy,

I hope this is not too depressing a subject for you, but I need to ask. I am getting on up there in years and I have three cats whom I love dearly. I worry that something will happen to me and there will be no one to take care of them. Do you have any ideas?

Buddy & Porky’s Pet Health: The “Free” Puppy

Dear Porky & Buddy,

My next door neighbor came home with a new puppy a few weeks ago that she had gotten from a free to good home ad. I use the word “free” advisedly because a week after the puppy arrived he was at the veterinary hospital with parvo and almost didn’t make it. Now $2300 later, he is home and I guess ok, but should I be worried? My kids were playing with him and I have my own (fully vaccinated) dog.

Buddy & Porky’s Pet Health: Is It Too Cold Outside?

Dear Porky and Buddy,

I just looked at the outdoor thermometer and it’s 10 degrees. My adopted boxer mix is crossing his legs and begging me to just this once not make him go outside to do his business and my elderly cat won’t come out from under the covers. Are there any special things I should know about taking care of my pets when it gets this cold.

Buddy & Porky’s Pet Health: Halloween Pet Costumes?

Dear Porky & Buddy,

Halloween is coming, my very favorite holiday, and I am so excited. I plan to dress up as a witch and then my dog Skip and my cat Sadie as little devils (which they are) and have them with me when I greet trick or treaters. Isn’t that a great idea?

Buddy & Porky: What To Do With An Abandoned Pet?

Dear Porky and Buddy,

Help! Two weeks ago I rescued a stray kitten, took her to the vet for a health check, made a big effort to find her owner, (without success) and now I really need to find her a permanent home, as I really can’t keep her. Do you have any suggestions about how to go about doing that?

Buddy & Porky’s Pet Health: A Frantic Dog, Home Alone

Dear Buddy,

I just adopted a new dog, Amelia. She is about nine months old and she is perfect except for one thing. Whenever I leave the house, even for short periods, when I come back it seems that she has been frantic and destructive the whole time. I know I could leave her in a crate and prevent this, but since I work during the day, I would prefer that she have the run of the house if I can just get her to stop this behavior.

Porky & Buddy’s Pet Health: Adoptions & The Holidays

Dear Porky and Buddy, I am thinking about adopting a pet for my family for the holidays, but I am told that some animal shelters don’t like to adopt out during the holidays.  Is that true for the Humane Society, and if so, why? Sally Dear Sally, Thanks for thinking about adopting and for this
