It seems that we only really talk about black cats around Halloween, but did you know that August 17th is actually National Black Cat Appreciation Day? It’s a day to cherish the black cats in our community a little extra and to dismantle the stereotypes that they are put up against. Since there is a good deal of superstition and folklore surrounding not just black cats, but our dogs too, we thought we would take a minute to learn more about the origins of these stories! Who Ever Said Cats Were Unlucky? It is not fully known where the bad...

The Pet Hydration Conversation

Did you know that July is National Pet Hydration Month?  Don’t get us wrong, hydration is important all year round. Water is the basis for the biological processes and reactions that keep our pets alive, and also aids in the transport of essential nutrients and substances around their bodies!  However, during the warm Edmonton summer months, our pets are at a greater risk for heat-related illness and dehydration. This is why we take July as the month to raise awareness about the importance of hydration. What Happens When Your Pet Is Dehydrated? On hot days, our pups lose more water...

How To Enrich Your Cat’s Life

Cats are known to boast about their independence, which has awarded them the reputation of being pretty low-maintenance pets, at least compared to dogs. But is that really the case?  Definitely not!  Our feline friends require a great deal of mental and physical stimulation, and social interaction. When these needs aren’t fulfilled, our cats become bored and can start to exhibit anxiety, aggression, excessive grooming, and undesirable behaviours like bathroom accidents and furniture scratching. There’s nothing low maintenance about that! Enrichment To The Rescue! Enriching your cat’s environment boosts their mental and physical health by keeping them stimulated, engaged, and active....

The Tick Talk

May is Lyme disease awareness month in Canada. Lyme disease is a bacterial illness that affects both humans and pets. It is most commonly spread through the bite of an infected tick, which like to occupy wooded and grassy areas like Edmonton’s River Valley. If the disease spreads through the body it can have devastating effects. The unfortunate thing about Lyme disease in dogs is that it is fairly common and can easily go unnoticed. What does Lyme disease look like in dogs? Lyme disease bacteria tends to localize in a dog’s kidneys and joints. This causes symptoms such as:...

The Rundown on Dog Anxiety

Just like in humans, dog anxiety comes in many forms. People can talk about their anxiety and what triggers it, and ask for what they need to help navigate their emotions, but we cannot communicate like this with our pups!

Here is a quick rundown of two types of dog anxiety, how they can manifest, and what you can do for prevention and treatment.  Separation Anxiety This type...

4 Reasons Why Mutts are Paw-some!

In many dog shows and in pop culture, purebred dogs are revered as the most wonderful pups with exceptional traits and beauty. Not to say that this isn’t true, but mutts are most definitely overlooked in the media. Not in our hearts! We think that Mutts in Edmonton are truly paw-some, and here are four reasons why. 1.
