All in the family: Canine Aggression to Family Members
All in the family: Canine Aggression to Family Members

There is no doubt that many people view their dogs as family members.  In fact many of my clients often use the term "four-legged children" when describing their pets.  A recent journal article in Science demonstrated that both people and their dogs experience an increase in the natural bonding hormone oxytocin after a period of interaction. Some researchers theorize the familiar canine characteristics of large eyes, playfulness, and retention of other juvenile traits promote a relationship similar to that of a parent and child.  Although the interaction is often very strong and relatively peaceful, just like any other relationship, there can be periods of conflict.

What to Do When Food Won't Stay Down
Gastroenteritis: What to Do When Food Won’t Stay Down

One of the most common reasons that pets end up in the veterinary hospital or ER is due to vomiting and diarrhea, known medically as gastroenteritis. While trauma and poisonings are common and more dramatic, this sometimes simple, sometimes complex condition accounts for a big percentage of veterinary visits. In some cases, the cause can be serious, elude diagnostics tests, or require hospitalization or surgery. Luckily for many cases, the cause and treatment are simple, and management can be completed at home. Your vet can help guide you through the steps needed to determine the cause and the best course of action, and some of the information here will help you decide what's best for your pet before a visit.

That’s Toxic? Things You Didn’t Know Were Poisonous to Your Pets

Pet owners are pretty savvy these days, and thanks to the internet, information about pet health and toxins is pretty widely available. There's a heap of bad information, too, so be careful what you read and check your sources. Most pet owners in-the-know are aware of antifreeze, chocolate, and rat poison, and know about several other possible toxins that can affect pets like human prescription and over the counter medications. Despite this, there are a few items that are found in most homes that can be toxic to pets, and I'm always surprised that more people aren't aware of them. I've treated patients poisoned with each one of these substances, so the threat is very real.

As a veteran vet of 20 years in the small animal ER, one of the most heartbreaking emergencies I've seen over the years goes by the name of "Big dog - Little dog" in medical slang.

5 Electronic Fence Myths

One conundrum that's frequently encountered when trying to place a shelter pet is having to make a call on whether or not an electronic fence makes for a safe pet containment system.

Read on to discover myths about shelter pets and electronic fences.
