Theobromine Alert
There's often nothing more your dog loves than a kiss and cuddle, but what ever you do don't give your dog a Hershey's Kiss.
In domestic animals, especially dogs, chocolate may harm the heart, kidneys and central nervous system. This is because dogs metabolize theobromine, a naturally occurring substance in chocolate, very slowly. The effect of theobromine on dogs and some other pets is serious. It carries the same risk as does a dog's consumption of other common household items such as coffee, tea, cola beverages and certain houseplants.

   Holistic Care

Back in the 'good old days' people used tried and tested ways of treating animals and called these methods 'home remedies'.  Today it's called Holistic Medicine.  I personally prefer to call them home remedies, in part because I'm old fashioned, and in part because I believe that complex medicine is best left to trained professionals.  Whichever name you call it by the results are the same.  A word of caution if you should decide to treat your dog yourself, ALWAYS check with your veterinarian first and get their advise.

 

Food allergies
Food allergies account for about 10% of all the allergies seen in dogs and cats.
 
   


 

  Be Prepared

Accidents happen, and are never anticipated.  Put together a simple and inexpensive dog first aid kit as a first step to being prepared, and always seek professional help from a licensed veterinarian.
