Warning: Flea & Tick Products can be Hazardous to Your Pet & You!

tickEach year close to a billion dollars is spent on flea, tick and mite repellents for our dogs and cats. The thought of our beloveds getting Lyme, Ehrlichiosis, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever disease from ticks or Sarcoptic Mange from mites, let alone flea infestation resulting in one big itchy household is more than we can deal with. So each year the average family can easily spend well over $200 to protect just ONE pet. This does not even include heartworm medication! While this is obviously tough on the purse, what cost is this having on our pet’s health as well as ours?

Patrick - the Pit Bull Puppy Thrown Out in the Trash

Animal lovers, or for that matter any person with an iota of compassion, never get numb to animal abuse.  Last month,  a Pit Bull puppy, became another tragic example of horrendous animal abuse at the hands of the very person who was supposed to be his guardian.  Patrick, so named because he was discovered the day before St. Patrick's Day, was starved, neglected, abused, and then put in a plastic garbage bag and tossed down an apartment garbage chute (a 22-story apartment building - Patrick was thrown down from the 19th floor).  When a maintenance worker noticed the bag moving just before he was going to put it in the trash compactor, he found the emaciated body of a puppy near death.

Green Paw Best Friends: Meet Sydney


Meet SYDNEY as well as other Green Paw Best Friends.

SYDNEY, the "Wild Kitty" My cat Q had just died when I found a teensy kitten hopping around in the ivy outside the house. My first thought was I must get her out of harm’s way as the neighborhood was being invaded by coyotes looking for a good meal.  But there was no catching this girl easily. I put food out for her but she was extremely skittish, and more interested in eating bugs than the food I was supplying. For a month, I saw her hanging out with birds, squirrels, and lizard, her friends.  Finally, she began eating the food I gave her.  I would watch from nearby but never too close. I wasn't up for another pet but I had to at least make sure she was ok. My friends got a "have a heart" trap and shortly caught her.
