Housecats are homebodies. It’s in their name, after all. Even if you’re parent to a cat that will venture out of doors, a trip in a motor vehicle can take a team just to get them into their travel carrier. And if they get a whiff that the final destination is the groomer, you might need to call search and rescue just tofindthem!
Everyone loves a new puppy. Slightly less cute, however, are the stains on the carpet and surprises on the floor. House-training may feel like it’s taking forever, but the good news is that every month they can hold it a little longer and by 4-6 months old, they should be fully going outside. But until then, here’s how to help your puppy (and your house) get through the experience.
Most of us are more sedentary during the colder season, meaning joints can get stiff and callouses might wear thin. Dry heated air can cause dehydration, frostbite and hypothermia are as dangerous for dogs as they are for people, and—maybe worst of all—sensitive paws are exposed to rain, snow, ice, and de-icing chemicals. Luckily, there are some simple ways to protect your pup’s paws this winter.
You don’t need to throw a cocktail party to make these appetizing Beef Balls! Made with love—The Honest Kitchen’s love beef recipe, that is—and ground beef, these bite-sized treats are grain and gluten-free. Plus, they include green peas, which are a good source of the B vitamin Thiamin, phosphorous, and potassium. Both parsley and rosemary are safe spices to use when it comes to feeding your dog. Parsley helps freshen your dog’s breath and also has vitamin C, K, and B, carotenoids, iron and limonene (an oil that kills bad mouth bacteria). As well as being flavorful, rosemary is high in iron, calcium, and Vitamin B6.
