What does your special pet want for the holidays?

What does your special pet want for the holidays?

I have been very, very busy getting ready for the holidays. As you can see, I have already compiled my extensive Christmas shopping list. For my Mommeh, I am working on making something extra-special. This project will likely take up all my spare time, so I had to go online to get a gift for my brother Harley. Luckily, I was able to take advantage of the Black Friday sale at […]

A holiday hazard: how to help your pet’s stomach upset

With the Thanksgiving holiday come and gone, and the arrival of the Christmas holiday season, this is a time of year when we see lots of pets in the veterinary clinic with digestive upsets and varying amounts of diarrhea and vomiting.

The costume made me do it! Harley’s Halloween disaster

I’ll bet you didn’t recognize me in my Halloween costume. Surprise — it’s just me, Harley! This year I am extra lucky because I get to be a GREEN crayon. Other colors are good, but green is the best. Even though I am very, very happy with my costume, it has already caused me some serious trouble.
