It was bound to happen, another big conglomerate got into the pet food game. This time it's General Mills buying Blue Buffalo for approximately US$8 billion, or US$40 per share in cash. I have never been a Blue Buffalo fan. They've been riddled with recalls for years and I still remember when they told all those mom and pop stores (who really built this food for them), they would always stay with them and not go into big box stores. Sure enough, they entered the market with PetsMart and PetCo... Read more →

Back in 2003 we had an 8 year old rottweiler that had hip and elbow dysplasia surgeries before he was a year old. Storm was feeling his age and the surgeries and there was no way we were ready to say goodbye to our gorgeous boy! I only wish we would have had a video of this change but again, it was back 15 years ago. It still brings a tear to my eye watching him run around our 5 acres with our younger dogs. We highly recommend Life's Abundance... Read more →

Two years ago, if you had asked me whether or not I recommended the canine influenza vaccine, I’d have told you, “probably not.” Even as recently as one year ago, I probably would have said the same thing, at least here in San Diego. But that’s the thing about medicine, especially when it comes to emerging diseases ... situations can change rapidly. Recommendations that made sense as recently as six months ago no longer hold. Such is the case with the current outbreak of canine influenza. Here’s what we know... Read more →

Rio and Thor loves Life's Abundance treats. They've been eating the various treats since we adopted them back in 2006. There are some they prefer over others and when Life's Abundance introduced these Turkey Hearts Freeze-Dried Dog Treats I had a feeling these would be their new favorite. Sure enough, I was right. Thor is even trying to eat the bag. This is not his normal behavior and is not the behavior of an almost 14 year old dog! If you have younger dogs these treats will probably make them...

Skin problems are some of the most common complaints in veterinary medicine, right up there in the top three. Surprised? It shouldn’t be too shocking when you consider that the skin is the body’s largest organ, one subjected daily to the elements.

So, how do you even begin to understand why your... Read more →


Have you ever really thought about what it means to eat? For instance, when you ingest something, is it truly in your body? After all, the entire digestive system is essentially a long hollow tube. True, this highly complex tube is undeniably part of the body. Yet despite some of its varied functions, it’s primarily a series of sorting compartments. Moving through the digestive tract, the body determines that some substances are ‘useable’ and absorbs them, while others are lumped into the ‘non-useable’ category and are passed as waste. So,...

Dog treats should be selected based upon their nutritional merits rather than on cost, flavor or glitzy packaging. When you turn over the package, look at the ingredients.

It’s a common belief that cats are highly susceptible to stress. How many memes have you seen referencing “neurotic kitty”?

If our kitties are constantly showing signs of stress and anxiety, we owe it to them to identify solutions to help them feel better. So how do you know if your cat is stressed versus just being naturally feisty? Well, the signs are subtle. Oftentimes, it’s a subtle change in behavior that doesn’t... Read more →


Porky Puffs! The Safe Alternative To Rawhides For Dogs

In 2012, my husband and I took the kids down to the San Diego waterfront for the annual “Big Bay Boom” Fourth of July fireworks extravaganza. As we staked a spot on the grass, I was surprised to see a couple with an Australian Shepherd puppy. Surely they’re planning on leaving before the fireworks began, I thought to myself. But as the lights dimmed and the crowd hushed, it became clear the dog was staying for the show. Unfortunately for all of us, someone had made a grave mistake. The... Read more →

Don’t take this the wrong way, but chances are that you’re deficient … in minerals. That’s because nearly half of the U.S. population receives less than the daily recommended levels of one or more minerals. Despite awareness campaigns to highlight the critical role minerals play in optimal body function, confusion persists about how to avoid a mineral deficiency and know if you’re affected. Inadequate mineral intake has become problematic because our food supply simply does not provide the same amounts or variety of minerals that diets did 100 years ago.... Read more →
