Pet Fire Safety Law Passes

When over 30 dogs were killed in a fire in West Chicago at Bully Life Animal Services (formerly D and D Kennels),  2N442 County Farm Road on January 14, I thought this shouldn’t ever happen again.

Dr. Google is Not Man’s Best Friend

Veterinary behaviorist Dr. Chris Pachel on my national Steve Dale’s Pet World radio show says that our pets are paying a price – though their caretakers love them – because people source their information from pet store employees, friends at the dog park or Dr. Google.

Tick Disease is Forever

Experts suggest that this season ticks will be in even greater abundance. And where there are ticks, there’s tick disease. Veterinary nurse Beckie Mossor suggests on my national Steve Dale’s Pet World radio show that unless it’s happened to you – you might think it will never happen to you. Once infected, there is no…

Maine May Be Next State to Limit Pet Store Sales

Maine could prohibit pet shops from selling dogs and cats under a proposed bill. Democratic Sen. Ben Chipman’s bill would establish a fine of $500 per violation and pet shops could also face license suspension or revocation. California and Maryland have passed similar bills in hopes of helping cats and dogs in shelters waiting for homes,…
