"Bee" Careful: Stings Can Be Serious!

April showers bring May flowers…and with them, bees.

After all, your dog goes outside, probably eats questionable substances on occasion, and may be known to roll in smelly areas.

Does Your Cat Enjoy Catnip?

Catnip and Your Cat - What it Is, What it Does, and Why It Doesn’t Affect All Cats

If you’re like most cat owners, you’ve probably bought your cat one of those catnip stuffed mice from the pet store. Maybe your cat rolled around with it in ecstasy and then proceeded to dissect it. Or, maybe your cat gave it sniff and walked on by, tailing swishing in the air without a care.
