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.

across this wonderful article, written by Katie Finlay, and wanted to share it

comfortable and relaxed while in our care. If you have an anxious dog, there are things

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.

having a first aid kit handy is not something you’re terribly concerned about

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.

recalls happening, it’s hard to know which brand of treats you can trust!

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.
Ethylene glycol, the most common type of antifreeze commercially available, has an extremely sweet taste.
