Quick view: 5 Top Products to Spoil Your Pet
The PetHub team might be small, but it's jam packed with people who are passionate about pets. We love pampering our own dogs, cats, and birds and we also love enhancing the lives of other pets in our respective circles. Did one of our team members host a dog birthday party for her dog last weekend? Yes, yes she did.  It should come as no surprise, then, that we have collected our own list of favorite things we like to have to spoil our own pets, our foster pets, pets waiting for their forever homes at local shelters, and the pets we love and care about in our network of friends and family. Take a look at our curated list for recommendations on how you can spoil your own pet, today! DogTV For many of us, streaming the TV for our pets whenever we leave the house has been common practice before the invention of DogTV. I would always turn on the TV before leaving the house, normally dialing into a nature documentary for a distraction. One day, after learning about DogTV, I turned it on after starting a free trial. I joked with my spouse that it was a marketing ploy and he laughingly agreed. Then we stopped laughing. Our dog was transfixed in front of the television. She was... (go to article)

The name "PetHub" isn't just something that is catchy (although, we're pretty proud of how catchy it is). When we created the company, our mission was to establish a "hub" where all your pet's essential information can live for easy access. Having the ability to include medical information, vaccination records, behavioral traits, and the contact information for multiple safety circle pet caretakers is one of the reasons PetHub is such a valuable tool for pet parents. We recognize the value in having a single "hub" but we also know that you, as a pet parent, have legitimate questions and concerns about who is able to gain access to your contact information, the contact information for other safety circle members you've added, and health or behavioral information you've added for your pet. Instant Access Do me a favor, go grab your pet's PetHub tag for a sec. If it's attached to a pet's collar, please promise me you're telling your pet how much you love them as you grab the tag. Okay, now that you have the tag, you can see that one side has a design, whether it's our "Get Me Home Club" tag or something with the logo of your local veterinarian, animal shelter, or possibly...

Quick view: Considerations when Bringing a New Pet Home
The team at Eusoh have written a guest article for us for Lost Pet Prevention Month. The views and recommendations made are those of the guest contributers. One of the missions of the Eusoh community is affordable care for all pets but a huge part of that is keeping them safe. We believe one of the most important aspects of pet parenting is preparing and preventing the worst possible scenarios. And one of those worst possible scenarios is losing a pet. Obviously, when you introduce a new pet into your home, you must prepare your home as well as your finances for the “what if” moments that are bound to happen. Here are some of the things you must do to avoid regret. Getting pet identification. It’s never too early nor too late to get identification for your furry best friend. And when it comes to pet identification, companies like PetHub have developed IDs and platforms for the current smartphone generation. We shouldn’t think of pet identification as just a “chip” or some sort of tracking device to ensure the location of our pets. It’s more than that, pet ID tags can consolidate and store pet health records; And these pet records can be accessed by a veterinarian or a... (go to article)

Quick view: Pet Travel Safety by Car for Dogs & Cats
Until recently, I lived about an hour and a half from my immediate family, meaning any visit included a road trip. For a window of time, we relied on pet lodging (either in-home care or pet hotels, depending on availability). After one of our pets was injured while being cared for by someone else, it was decided that, if my pets can’t come along, the trip isn’t happening. As a result, knowing tips and tricks to ensure my pets are safe and comfortable while traveling is something I’ve researched over the years. Our friends at PetSafe have created a helpful article, including a checklist for Pet Travel Tips for Dogs and Cats by Car that you should read when you have time. It has useful recommendations for products to make the process as smooth and safe as possible while also sharing considerations, like knowing veterinary contact information in advance of your departure, that pet parents may not have considered before. You will be able to save either checklist as an image that you can save on your phone or print and bring with you!   In addition to the article provided by PetSafe, I’d like to share some helpful hints I’ve learned along the way: The buddy system helps...

Quick view: Losing Myles - A Tale from GoPetFriendly
Amy Burkert from GoPetFriendly contributed a guest article for PetHub to help Pet Parents prepare for Lost Pet Prevention Month in July.  Absolutely gutted. There are no other words. That’s how I felt as I watched my lightening-fast dog racing off after three deer. My husband and I were out for a walk with Myles, strolling the gravel roads near our friends’ home where we were visiting. They live in a spectacular community; 13,000 acres along the spine of the Sangre de Cristo mountains in southern Colorado. But when your dog pulls the leash right out of your hand and takes off after the local wildlife, it feels more like a vast, terrifying wilderness. I think we’re responsible pet owners. In fact, I write a blog about traveling with pets and have covered the precautions people can take to prevent pets from getting lost when they’re away from home. We’d also worked on recall with Myles, kept him on leash when we had any concerns that he could take off, and fitted him with both a visible ID tag and a registered microchip. But that day showed me that, no matter how careful we were, dogs are animals — and they can go missing in a heartbeat. It’s hard to blame Myles. He is a... (go to article)
