What’s about to follow is a terrifying story for those, like myself, who’ve experienced this scenario first hand: It’s a normal day and you're walking your pup near a busy street teeming with traffic. You've given her the okay to leave your side and explore a patch of grass when all of a sudden you feel the leash pull tight and slip out of your hand. In the split second it takes you to reach down and recover the leash, your pup has discovered her new freedom and is trotting away from you at a rapidly increasing pace. At first, you're worried she might get lost...then you're absolutely struck with fear at the thought... (go to article)

Pethub's very well loved dogs Huckey, Petey, and Penny! Maybe you just introduced a senior pup into your family, or maybe you have gotten the joy of seeing your furry friend on adoption day until now. Either way, they deserve the same love, care, and attention that they received as puppies. Did you know that your dog is considered a senior starting at the age of 7? Though they might have just as much energy as they did when they were younger, it is important to start looking for effects of aging so that you can ensure that your pet is comfortable. As your dog ages they still enjoy all the same things from when they were younger (lots of treats, toys, cuddles...) but they may need a little bit more help than usual. It is important to make sure you are choosing the right products for your dogs so that they stay engaged, healthy, and happy. Here at PetHub we have the pleasure of knowing and loving some amazing senior dogs. Our team rallied together and came up... (go to article)
Quick view: Every Day Is Tag Day 2021
Some of our PAW-SOME pets wearing our PetHub ID Tag's! Now, here at PetHub we know that every day is tag day, but it was ironically decided that on April 3rd the pet community would celebrate “Every Day Is Tag Day”! This was done with a purpose, we promise. This campaign was started around the idea of educating pet parents on how important it is to have identification for your animals. You may be thinking “why is this important?” Well, let us share a few statistics with you to highlight some crucial reasons why this matters to every pet owner! 1 in 3 pets will go missing at some point in their lifetime. Only 17% of dogs and 3% of cats in shelters are returned to their owners. According to ASPCA, around 1.5 million companion animals in shelters are euthanized. This number has actually dropped significantly due to more pets finding their original owner! We know when reading these statistics that you may say “that would never be me.” Believe it or not, the idea of PetHub was created when our CEO Tom Arnold’s cat went missing. His furry friend was an inside cat, but for some reason when he opened his garage door this one morning, she got spooked and ran away. He had no... (go to article)

  This is a featured guest article from Now Fresh. Their idea is simple - pets deserve food that is made with the same love, care, and thoughtfulness as we put into preparing meals for the human members of our families. Author: Natalie Asaro, Nutrition Manager, NOW FRESH We like to be transparent at PetHub: we have affiliate partnerships with some of the companies listed below and we may receive a commission for purchases made through the links in this article at no extra cost to you. Meet Brynlee - or Bryn as her mom calls her -  a six month old German Shepherd mix rescue pup! If you’ve decided that adopting a puppy is right for you, congratulations! Adding a new furry family member can be one of the most rewarding experiences you’ll ever have. In addition to the mental health benefits of bringing home a new companion, the energy and excitement will always keep you on your toes. While you’re definitely in for a lot of affection, it’s also important to understand it’s your job as a pet parent to teach them good habits and care for them properly. One of the most important parts of doing that is ensuring they have a balanced and proper nutrition. So, if you’re... (go to article)
Quick view: Does your dog eat a lot? It might be genetic
This is a featured guest article from Embark Veterinary, the world leader in dog genetics with a mission to end preventable disease in dogs by providing dog DNA tests that enable pet owners to learn about their dog’s breed, ancestry, and health - all with a simple cheek swab. Discover how DNA could be keeping your pup from feeling full after mealtimes, causing life-long health problems Recent studies have revealed that 56% of dogs in the United States are overweight or obese, but the extra squishiness around your pup’s stomach can cause a myriad of health problems including canine diabetes, heart problems, and arthritis. Lucky for us, modern day science and technology can help pet parents have access to valuable information when it comes to their dog’s health. Since 2019, Embark Veterinary’s doggy DNA tests have been able to test for a gene (called Pre-Opiomelanocortin, or POMC for short) that may be causing their dog’s overeating. This helps pet parents make informed lifestyle changes to improve the health of their dogs. The POMC gene can contribute to obesity in all dog breeds, it specifically affects Labrador Retrievers and Flat Coated Retrievers -- which isn’t a big... (go to article)
