The PetHub Community is about helping each other find resources as we guide our pets through their lives. As the proverb says, "It takes a village to raise a child," and certainly most of us look at our pets as our kids and we want them to grow in a safe and healthy environment. Please help us build this community by participating through asking & answering questions in the forums, suggesting articles and "Perks" you'd like to see offered and generally helping one another.

Quick view: Today I Said Goodbye
I said goodbye to her today. Perhaps she would have lived naturally for a few more weeks, or even months, but it would not be a peaceful passing, but rather a painful, scary and drawn out one, filled with even more medication and vet visits, and I just didn’t want that ending for her. So Penny passed away today, in my arms, surrounded by the rest of her pack, in her home, in her favorite bed (appropriately designed with black, white and red sugar skulls), peacefully and without pain and fear. My husband and I always joked that Penny would not leave a beautiful corpse, because she lived life fully and had a multitude of scars and ailments to prove it. When we dressed her a few years ago as Frankenpenny and then this year as Darth Penny for Halloween, they were very fitting costumes -- one of our PetHub employees actually did a poster featuring Penny as Darth Penny. My brother told me earlier this week when I let him know we were saying goodbye to her today, that he had been convinced that Penny was going to be the world’s first cyborg-dog and live forever -- if only that were possible, huh?      I tried to count up how many surgeries she’s had, and I think she...

Quick view: Animal Shelter Appreciation Week 2019: What Our Fr...
In 1996, The Humane Society of the United States founded National Animal Shelter & Rescue Appreciation Week. This week is to help encourage people to learn more about their local shelters, what they are doing to help animals all over, and to help people learn how they can help too! According to the HSUS, “Approximately 3,500 animal shelters across the United States serve the estimated 6-8 million homeless animals who need refuge each year, and many more animals find themselves in need of the services provided by local rescue groups”. The workers and volunteers that make up these shelters & rescues deserve all the appreciation for the great work they are doing to find forever homes & care for as many animals as possible. We wanted to take this time to show some appreciation to some of the amazing shelters that work with PetHub and to highlight some of the amazing programs and efforts they are doing.   ANCHORAGE ANIMAL CARE & CONTROL Kitten Social Hour: fostered kittens visit with residents of an assisted living home.

Quick view: Pet Microchips #FAIL
Recently, I’ve seen several news articles about municipalities considering abandoning external identification tags for pet licensing and moving to a microchip-only program for pets in their communities. I find this approach worrisome at best, and potentially detrimental to the overall lost pet recovery of pets in their community. Why? Because it takes too many things going “right” for microchips to work. When pet microchip manufacturers talk about their product, they are optimistic to the point of arrogance. While confidence and hubris gets them sales, it is at the cost of animal safety and an increased expense to animal welfare organizations and individuals who replace a physical ID tag with a surgically implanted chip. I acknowledge that my credibility is suspect in pointing out the microchip short-comings because my company develops modern digital identification tags and software solutions. Anyone spending a modicum of time speaking with animal care professionals, however, will quickly learn the truth that microchip companies have oversold their solution as the panacea for pet identification. Before I go into the failings of microchips, I want to first point out that I am... (go to article)
