Holiday Weight Gain and Healthy Pet Recipes
This time of year, we're all susceptible to packing on a bit of holiday weight. But did you know that pets are just as apt to tip the scales during the holidays as we are? It's true. In fact, the average dog receives 500 extra calories on Thanksgiving alone (more than twice the requirements for a 20-pound dog) and cats are offered an additional 200 calories.
The problem? Overeating pets can end up with diabetes, arthritis, gastroenteritis, and more. Find out how to keep your pet from overindulging and check out some healthy holiday pet recipies...
This time of year means football, crisp air, colorful foliage and even, depending on where you live, maybe even a little bit of snow.

Aging pets need a special kind of love
As with people, it's not unusual for older pets to develop behavioral problems. While it's easy to blame these behavior changes on age alone, they can also indicate underlying medical problems. Make sure your elder pet visits your veterinarian as recommended, and that you watch for any noticeable changes in your senior pet's behavior. Learn what to watch for...
An overview of canine cancer warning signs
Did you know that cancer is the number one killer in dogs in the United States?
The good news is, there are several signs you can watch for, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association and the Veterinary Cancer Society. Even if the condition turns out not to be cancer, you may be able to detect another medical condition that needs veterinary attention. Also, it is critical to remember that a pet can be very sick "inside", without showing any of the signs "outside" which is why regular veterinary checkups are recommended.

It's tick season.
As the weather gets warmer, our pets spend more time outside. However, more time in the great outdoors can mean a higher likelihood that your pet will run into some pretty icky critters, like ticks.

Courtesy of the Miami Herald: Brando wheeled his way through the Hialeah shopping plaza parking Wednesday morning, barely able to muster more than a weak "woof."

But doctors are hoping that will all change, after an innovative two-part stem cell surgery performed Wednesday at Paradise Animal Clinic in Hialeah. It's the first time the combination therapy has been performed in Florida.
