5 Ways To Calm An Anxious Dog
by Katie Finlayon April 25, 2017


I came across this wonderful article, written by Katie Finlay, and wanted to share it with my blog post readers.  In our pet sitting business, we encounter many anxious dogs (and cats).  It is our job to do what we can to make them comfortable and relaxed while in our care.  If you have an anxious dog, there are things you can do to help put him at ease.  If you find something that works for your dog, then we can continue to utilize your methods while we are caring for your pets.

Pet First Aid Kit - Be Prepared for Emergencies


This is a comprehensive pet first aid list complied by Dr. Becker that I want to share with my pet sitting friends. As a professional pet sitter, I have had pet first aid training and also carry a well-stocked pet first aid kit in my car.  At every visit, the sitters at Kelly's Pet Sitting will assess you furry friend's health and we are prepared for emergencies if they should arise. 

By Dr. Becker

If you’re like most people, having a first aid kit handy is not something you’re terribly concerned about -- until you really need one.

Pet Poisining - What to Do



I would like to share this article written by Dr. Karen Becker because being prepared in a pet poisining emergency can mean the difference between life and death for your pet. At Kelly's Pet Sitting in Medford, Oregon, our sitters are aware of the signs of poisoning and know what to do.  Having a professional pet sitter care for your pets gives you an added benefit because we are knowledgable about emergency pet situations and can get your pet to the veterinarian immediately, if needed.

MEOWY CHRISTMAS AND YAPPY NEW YEAR FROM KELLY’S PET SITTING!
 
With the holidays here and all those yummy treats being passed around, does your dog or cat look at you with pleading eyes?  I know mine do, but we try to limit human food for our pets.  So, I thought it would be fun to share some dog and cat treat recipes you can make at home.  That way you can spoil your pets a little too.  With all of the pet food and treat recalls happening, it’s hard to know which brand of treats you can trust!

Dog Park Etiquette - Kelly's Pet Sitting Medford, OR

Now that summer and warmer weather is here, a lot more people will be taking their dogs to the dog park to socialize and exercise. Here are eight tips for having a happy dog park experience.

DID YOU KNOW?

As a professional pet sitter for 10 years and a pet owner for 40+ years, I am always fascinated about anything to do with animal information.

The Dangers of Antifreeze


The Dangers of Antifreeze

My blog this month is a post by Dr. Jeff Grognet and Mike Annan at ACE Academy for Canine Educators. Antifreeze is so deadly that I wanted to highlight the importance of keeping it out of reach from your pets. Without immediate veterinary treatment the prognosis for recovery is very grim. Dogs and cats are very curious by nature so I felt this was extemely important to share.
