Woman care of her pet

Knowing what seemingly harmless items in your environment could cause major problems is the first step in keeping your pets safe and healthy.


If you ever think your fur baby has ingested anything toxic, please take action immediately and call your veterinarian or the 24/7 animal poison control center brought to you by the Pet Poison Helpline at 855-764-7661 (an incident fee may apply).


March 7th – 13th is Professional Pet Sitters Week. According to PetSit.com, this annual observance honors professional pet-care providers, seeks to educate the pet-owning public about the advantages of professional in-home pet care and encourages pet-loving entrepreneurs to explore professional pet sitting as a viable career.

This is the perfect opportunity to recognize and thank the pet sitters and dog walkers in your life. If you are in the market for a pet sitter, please check out this pet-sitter interview checklist to make sure you start off on the right foot!

March is a month full of possibilities, and holidays! From World Wildlife Day to K9 Veteran’s Day to St. Patrick’s Day to Holi, there are tons of amazing celebrations and observances to inspire creativity.

In the past we have seen wonderful engagement with animal-themed content promoting cleaning supplies (Spring cleaning), flea and tick products, and even new cars this time of year!
