A Tip for Your Cat Or Dog

4179374976_aef01aa4a3TIP FOR YOUR DOG:

Have a large or giant breed puppy? Be careful with exercise, as their rapid growth combined with extensive activity can result in injuries. Tip: encourage play on carpeted surfaces in your house rather than slippery surfaces such as hardwood or tile floors.


Did you know…cats tend to dislike the smell of citrus. Placing citrus scented objects in a place where your cat scratches inappropriately may help deter them! Try rubbing catnip on an area where you would like your cat to scratch, like a cat post or perch.
