Safe OTC Meds for Your Dog

August 22, 2016

Safe MedsI found this on Facebook – not sure what the original source is, but I know my vet has at one time or another recommended most of these for my dogs.

You should always check with your vet before giving any medication to your dog because you never know what might interact with what, but it’s good to know you don’t have to spend extra money on dog-specific medications if you already stock these common over-the-counter remedies.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Great idea, and one of many ways you can help keep your dog safe. What measures have you taken as a responsible dog owner?

Pets Home Alone

Home alone

Home Alone wallet card

What happens to your pets if you have (God forbid) a car accident or heart attack or some other problem while the animals are home alone? This can be a big concern to people who live alone, but for their pets. That’s what makes these products from Pet Care Card such a great idea.

Attach one card to your key ring and put the other in your wallet, and you can be sure someone will keep your dog from starving to death if something happens to you.

Someone had their thinking cap on when they came up with this!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

August 15, 2016

This short video from the AKC reminds you how important it is to
(a) have your pet microchipped and
(b) make sure your information is up to date with the chip registry.

Today, August 15th, has been set aside as Check the Chip day to remind all of us to take care of these important responsibilities. Do it now, before you forget!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Wounded Greenwood K9 Officer Kina Found Alive

August 13, 2016

When officers responded to a domestic disturbance call in Greenwood, Arkansas last Wednesday, a gunfight killed one officer, wounded another, and wounded K9 officer Kina, who had been in her cruiser. The dog escaped the vehicle and ran from the scene. She hadn’t been seen for two days, until someone who was building a new home near the scene of the shooting found her hiding out in the vacant home. The man called police, who responded immediately, keeping Kina contained in a fenced area until her handler arrived.

The video from Channel 5 News will bring a tear to your eye, as the dog bounds to meet her best friend. She had been shot twice, but appears to be healing well. They will need to evaluate her to see if she can function as a police dog after the trauma, but she is physically going to be ok.

Our sympathies to the Greenwood PD on the loss of one of their human officers during the domestic call.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
