make the holidays bright!
For us pet lovers there are many ways to
celebrate our favorite furry beings during the holidays.
Whether it’s a new toy, a
cute pet costume, or a healthy treat for them to enjoy, no doubt about it,
shopping for pet gifts is fun! Here are
a few of our favorite ideas based on what we see works everyday with our clients'
Avoiding Pet Depression
Let's face it; it’s
becoming a trend that our pets are developing very human-like issues. Or
maybe we just didn't think to notice before. A generation ago, you never
heard about pets getting cancer, and certainly not having the emotional
and psychological issues that are becoming
so common and often treated medicinally these days.
pet depression and anxiety are real. These sweet beings thrive on love
and attention. So it makes sense that they might succumb to the same negative
psychological reactions we humans do when encountering stressful situations.
Ways To Calm An Anxious Dog
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

your methods while we are caring for your pets.
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.

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.
SYMPTOMS THAT DOG AND/OR CAT OWNERS SHOULD NOT
This is Part 1 in a 2
part series of symptoms that dog and/or cat owners should not ignore, and
should seek veterinary attention right away. They are not in order of
importance, as they are all important.

ways to save money on their pets. Unfortunately, this also leads people to

How to Bring a
Scared Cat Out of Hiding
I was recently reminded of how much patience
this requires while on a Kelly's Pet Sitting visit. The female cat in question
("Hen") was ill and didn't have a cat or dog companion, so it was of
the utmost importance that I get her out from under the bed and make friends

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.
