February is National Pet Dental Health Month

Posted by: Best Friends

Anyone who has ever been loved by a dog knows that “doggy breath” is not always the most pleasant smell but did you know that halitosis might actually be a sign of a bigger problem?  According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, 80% of dogs and 70% of cats show signs of oral disease by the age of 3! We all know that brushing and flossing is important to keep our own teeth healthy but your furry family members need the same care and attention to their oral health.

The Pros and Cons of Summer Haircuts

Posted by: Best Friends

It is not always easy to keep a long- or thick-coated dog comfortable when the summer heat and humidity make man and beast wilt.

A dog’s coat – if well maintained -- actually serves as insulation against the heat, keeping a layer of cool air close to the skin. (Think of how the desert-dwelling Bedouin people dress in long robes and head coverings as protection against the sun and heat.)
