February is Pet Dental Health Month so we wanted to take this opportunity to remind you of the importance of keeping up with the dental health of our furry family members. Luckily for us, we recently had a veterinary dental specialist join our Best Friends family. His name is Dr. Gary Goldstein and, not only is he our new Chief Medical Officer, he is a Fellow of the Academy of Veterinary Dentistry and is certified in Veterinary Dentistry and Oral Surgery.
Are you ready for some football? Yeah you are, and so are we! We get so excited for the Super Bowl each year that we throw our very own Doggy Bowl parties in each of our Doggy Day Camps across the country. Our staff members turn into referees and coaches for the day and our Camp rooms transform into football stadiums; Camp parents turn into cheerleaders and our Doggy Day Campers become MVPs!
Best Friends professional Trainers recommend that you begin training your dog as soon as he arrives in your home. This will avoid irksome problems and let your new pooch know what’s expected of him.
Best Friends Total Pet Care and it animal-loving clients across the country showed their concern for homeless dogs and cats this recent holiday season by donating more than $25,000 worth in cash and supplies to the company’s 14th annual Animal Angel Tree campaign.
Did you know that January 14th is Dress Up Your Pet Day? A whole day devoted to dressing up pets... brilliant! At Best Friends we never let an opportunity like this pass us by.

Thanksgiving is a time of gratitude and sharing food and fun with our family and friends. Of course we would want to include our furry family members in the merriment! When it comes to enjoying this Thanksgiving with our pets though, we have to be very careful to not accidentally make them ill.
A huge thanks to everyone who entered our Best Friends #PetScares, Halloween Instagram Photo Contest! It was a big hit and we are thrilled with ALL of the entries. In fact, the judges had such a hard time narrowing down a top three that they decided to name five winners instead. The lucky five will receive a $50 gift certificate to use at any Best Friends Pet Care center or Veterinary Hospital.
