Great Essential Oil Remedies to Include in Any First Aid Kit

By Denise Fleck, Sunny-Dog Ink and Vicki Rae Thorne, Earth Heart Inc.
 
Most pet parents know it’s important to have a first aid kit around the house, and in their vehicle for their dog or cat. They also know it should include the obvious basics like gauze, first aid tape, eye wash, tweezers, antibiotic ointment, safety scissors, a digital thermometer, and a pet first aid handbook.
 
But did you know that remedies containing pure essential oils can be a safe and effective addition to your pet first aid kit?

Why Your Pet Needs A Digital ID Tag

Here at PetHub, we think it’s high time to have a serious talk about identification tags and leaving the old “pet-name-and-one-phone-number” etched tags in the past.

Today’s digital pet ID tags are not your grand-daddy’s dog tags. Pet identification tags have come a LONG way in just the last few years, folks, and if you’re still putting a $7 dollar circle of etched, one-name-and-number, aluminum on your dog or cat’s collar, your pets are missing out on powerful protection.  

Don’t Let Your Pet Run Around Naked!

When you pass another dog on your walk, or see a cat crossing the road, they are wearing a collar or harness with ID attached, right? If you saw that same pet lounging around on the couch, chances are they might be naked, or sans ID. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) recently found that only 33 percent of pet parents said they keep ID tags on their dogs and cats at all times.

That means, at one point or another, the majority of pets aren’t wearing identification that can help get them home if the worst happens. This is a real problem folks.

4 Critical Pet Safety Things to Remember as Summer Turns to Autumn

I don't know about you, but Autumn has a way of creeping up on me.  I've been so used to the warm weather and the ample daylight, I'm always a little surprised that morning when I go out to walk the dogs and I not only need a jacket, but I also need a flashlight!  It's a sure sign that fall is coming, and winter is right around the corner. And for folks like us here in the Pacfic Northwest, that means that COLD weather can come fast and furious, and a pet parent needs to be prepared.
