No matter what type of pets you have – cats, dogs, hamsters, guinea pigs, turtles, etc. – regular baths can be a healthy part of their care, but baths should be given gently to be sure they aren't hurting pets more than helping them.

Bath Frequency

Not all pets need the same number of baths, and depending on the species and its living conditions, some pets may never need intense bathing. Pets with allergies or more delicate skin may do best with fewer baths, while pets that get dirtier more frequently may need more baths. Pet owners must recognize that every pet, however, will have its own distinct odor and may shed skin or fur regularly – these are not issues that can be "c...

If your cat is particularly ornery or you are bringing home a new kitten, here are a few tips for a stress free environment. First, there are plenty of ways to tell if your cat is stressed. A cat will puff out the fur on its tail when it is upset. This is to make it appear bigger and could be a sign of a presumptive attack. A quick flipping motion of the cats tail may also be a sign of anger and this means that the cat wants to be left alone. It would be best to give it space in these situations. Arching of the back with its hair pricked up or hissing is also a bad sign.

An easy way to keep your cat happy is to clean its litter box regularly. Cats are very hygienic animals and they become ...

Just as important as teaching your dog to come back to you, teaching your dog to sit is an essential skill for your dog to know. Here is how to teach your dog to sit:

Training treats
Make sure that before you start you have some small treats that your pooch really enjoys. These will be very necessary for your training.

Get your dog’s attention
Call your dog’s name and make sure that he has your full attention. Make sure that he is near you and looking right at you before continuing.

Command and treat
Tell your dog the command “sit” and if you want, to bolster the command, point your finger at the ground. As soon as he plants his rump, give him the treat and some praise.

Whether you groom your dog or cat yourself or take them to a professional groomer, behavior problems can cause unpleasant conflicts and create difficult situations for you and your pet. Fortunately, there are several ways you can work to correct your pet's poor behavior and still keep them beautifully groomed.

Vaccinations are essential to protect your pet, but it can be confusing, even overwhelming, to decide which vaccinations are best for your pet and when they should be administered. The more you know about vaccinating your pet, however, the easier you will be able to take the best possible care of every furry family member.

Why Vaccinate?

While no vaccine is 100 percent effective, the proper vaccines can help your pet resist diseases or recover far more quickly and easily if they do become infected. Vaccines do much more than just protect your pet, however, and even if your pet rarely comes into contact wit...

Summer weather is one of the best times to get outside and be active with your furry friend. However, you should keep in mind that your pet reacts differently to heat than you do. Here are some things to keep an eye out for during hot weather:

Pre-hot weather grooming
Before the hot summer days arrive, you may want to consider grooming your pet. Thought your pet does have the natural defense of shedding as the heat approaches, it never hurts to help things along by giving a quick brushing to get out all the loose hair. This can be true particularly for dogs. Also, if your dog has long hair, you might want to cut it down to an inch long or so. Be sure that you never cut down to your dog&rsqu...
