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.

ways to save money on their pets. Unfortunately, this also leads people to
delay seeking medical care because they’re uncertain if a visit to the vet is
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
In my experience, there's always something that
will catch a cat's attention and bring them toward you. Usually
this response is instilled over time by the pet's parents.

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.
