Fearful Pets? Now is the Time to Plan for July 4th

It’s not that dogs aren’t patriotic, but many dogs, and also some cats, are terrified of the loud and sudden bangs we call fireworks on July 4th. It’s actually adaptive to be hard-wired to be afraid of sudden loud sounds. We too may jump at such sounds, and we might also run the other way…

SPCA Puerto Vallarta: What Would You Do?

Compassion has no boundaries. What would you do? A dog is spotted in arid land just outside Puerto Vallarta.

Acupuncture: Dr. Judy Morgan Says It May Help

Acupuncture is something we all have heard about – meaning we know the term. But what is it really? Dr. Judy Morgan explains, and says this form of medicine can help our pets. She’s my guest on my national Steve Dale’s Pet World radio show. I ask about the fact acupuncture involves needles, and how…

Fear Free: Freedom for Cats

story I wrote touting Fear Free which appeared on the Winn Feline Foundation website: Have you ever felt you are about to die?  I mean that literally, like you’ve been held up at gun point or held out a window by your suspenders 30 stories up? That’s how many cats feel when the carrier comes out.…
