Hi everypawdy, it’s me again, Bella! This year, National Dress in Blue Day is Friday, March 7th. It was first recognized in 2009 to bring attention to colon cancer by the Colon Cancer Alliance. It also celebrates all of those who have been affected by colon cancer, like my furrend Bill who lives across the street from me.
If you are a pet owner, then you know the amount of mischief your pet can get into. From scratching furniture to pulling on the leash, pets can really misbehave. Maybe you even have a throw pillow without the stuffing. When our pets make messes like this it can be frustrating. However, you love your little one and you don’t want to cause your pet any harm.

As I stepped outside and felt the warm moist Florida air, I was immediately taken back to this time last year when I went to Puerto Rico to visit my friend Miguel. Miguel has always asked me to visit but between my work and other local responsibilities I kept pushing and delaying. As soon as he picked me up he immediately wanted to rush home and tell me all the plans he had for each day. “First things first” said Miguel, “I know that you’re a pet lover and that you work at 1800PetMeds, so let me show you my new puppy.” As soon as he opened his front door, a beautiful golden Labrador retriever greeted me with the gentlest “kiss” and with eyes that spoke without words. Before I could get comfortable, Miguel introduced me to “Bear” and told me to pack some clothes for a day of hiking. Miguel explained that he was rushing because he had a trip planned for us to go hiking in the famous tropical rain forest called El Yunque. Read More »
Ohai! You might think that I am outside, but I am just pretending. I’m actually sitting in a sunny window enjoying the view. Even though I live in south Florida, sometimes I still get cold. For example, if the A/C gets turned down too low…. Brrrrrrr!
Sure, your cat may be indoors most of the time, but that doesn’t mean he or she can’t get fleas. Many pet parents don’t realize this, but 95% of the flea population is eggs and larvae, which can live in your home and in your yard – just a few steps away from your door. Yuck! Read More »
Hi again, everypawdy *Bella waves paw* ! It’s me, Bella!
Since yesterday was National Love Your Pet Day I thought I would go through my albums and find all the pictures that I have of me getting hugs from my pawrents. Here are some of the best hugs and cuddles that we have pictures of.
The first one is at an adoption event for Southern California Pomeranian Rescue, it was cold outside and Mommy has tucked me inside her jacket to keep me warm:
Valentine’s Day has passed, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop celebrating. In fact, another fun-loving holiday is here called Love Your Pet Day. Love Your Pet Day is celebrated on Thursday, February 20th, and it’s a chance to show your all pets just how much you love them. Sure, hugging, petting and giving an occasional treat is great, but if you’re looking for something different, here are 5 ways to celebrate Love Your Pet Day. Read More »
Back when I was in school, one of my teachers wanted to explain something called “therapeutic window” to the class. My teacher explained that you could draw a graph and put one line above and call it “toxic dose above” and another line under the first line called “ineffective dose below.” The distance between those two lines is the level that any drug needs to be in to be safe and effective and is called the “therapeutic window.” This distance is different, depending upon the specific medication, essentially making some drugs safer than others in terms of dosing errors such as giving an inadvertent extra dose, or an accidental overdose by the pet.

You might be wondering why I am wearing this cool wig. It is in honor of Presidents’ Day today! This holiday was originally created to celebrate George Washington’s birthday, on account of he is the father of our country. Thanks, George! (am I allowed to call him George?)
