Fat Man

Growing up my family always had animals; cats, a dog, a bunny, an unknown number of mice (yes, they were pets), horses, hamsters and us kids could arguably be on that list. Oh, how I would handle those animals. I would lay next to them, on them, kiss them, hug them – I still do […]

Many common cleaning products found on the market contain dangerous chemicals, and can pose a threat to humans as well as their furry companions. Because dogs (and most other animals) age and develop at a much faster rate, they also respond to contaminants by developing health problems at a faster rate. Their typical pet behaviors of […]

I fostered a German Shepherd named Bingo years ago for about 8 weeks. When she arrived she had already been institutionalized for about 4 years: dropped off as a puppy and returned several times… It was not made clear to me why she was returned, but I got the idea the shelter remained hopeful she […]

According to the World Health Organization, the widespread use if antimicrobials in food animal production is cause for concern regarding public health. Antimicrobials are used for mass treatment against infectious diseases or continuously in feed at very low doses (parts per million) for growth promotion, particularly in pig and poultry production. Antimicrobials are used to improve […]
