How to Unleash Better Health By Walking Your Dog

If you’re a dog owner, then you know most dogs need to be walked at least once each day, although very active breeds and more hyper dogs (cough, cough - Huskies) benefit from more frequent walks.

National Cat Health Month

Cats are becoming a favorite pet for Americans, catching up to the long standing favorite dogs. They cuddle on our lap, purr and soothe us when we are tired or sad, provide hours of hilarious antics, and still maintain an aloof demeanor to remind us we are not always the boss of everything. Yet, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association, as much as Americans love their cats, barely half of them ever make it in for regular health care. They remain unprotected against contagious diseases, parasites, aging and inherited illness.
