Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

This article will depart slightly from Focus on Felines as it concerns dogs too. (Be sure to read to the end of the article for a special announcement.)

In this geographic area and at this time of year, pet owners are concerned about the adverse effect the soaring summer temperatures may have on their pets, specifically cats and dogs. I know every pet parent realizes the importance of providing plenty of water, and for outside pets, plenty of shade. Indoor pets may also have an increase in their environmental Fahrenheit as we all try to keep electric bills lower by raising the indoor thermostat.

Homemade Pup-Sicles

Friday, July 1st, 2011

You can use a Popsicle mold or just an ice cube tray to freeze yummy, refreshing treats for your dog.

Get creative by tossing ingredients such as yogurt, bananas, peanut butter, and carrots into a blender with a little water or, for picky pooches, chicken or beef broth (all-natural or low sodium versions are best). If your dog is a dedicated chewer, try stuffing a KONG® with your concoction and putting it in the freezer. Your dog will look forward to cooling off with his special reward at the end of playtime.
