Summer 2016

michelle-morris-adams-tito-roxy-luckyWelcome Pet Lovers!


It’s summer and with summer comes change, change in the weather, in our gardens, and certainly in our pets. In this issue we wanted to share ways to keep your Pets Safe during summer months. Let’s not forget ourselves – it’s important to take the time to find balance, use sun screen and stay hydrated.

In this issue, we are so happy to include an article by Susan Raymond of CALM K9 Dog training. As a specialist who helps dogs with mild to significant behavioral problems, Susan works with all breeds, from youngsters to seniors and from the small toys to the big ‘uns. Susan approaches training from the dog’s perspective, in combination with a foundation of respect, patience, knowledge and consistency, creates an optimal environment for dogs to understand what is being asked of them and to happily and willingly comply.

I’ve come to know many veterinarians throughout Solano, Napa and Yolo County.  I have chosen to acknowledge the following practices for their compassion, high quality services and customer satisfaction;  Most of all, for the Veterinarians’  bedside manner!

Dr. Singh, DVM American Canyon Vet Hospital

Dr. Olm, DVM Southampton Pet Hospital

Dr. Thornburgh, DVM Valley Oak Veterinary Hospital

Dr. Sybil Murray, DVM

Choosing a vet that is right for you and your dog or cat is not always easy.  You must find a veterinarian that you connect with and that communicates well.  So take the time to find the right fit.

Don’t forget July is Adopt A Shelter Rabbit Month. Believe it or not, there are many Rabbits at the Shelters needing loving homes.  But like many other furry pets, rabbits have different personalities. So before  considering a pet rabbit, please educate yourself about the responsibilities of owning a rabbit. Andrea Austin has provided us with wonderful information on how to handle or understand a bunny.

Many cats are a dynamic of breeds these days and possibly Maine Coon. If you’re wondering if your cat might be Maine Coon, read about their traits inside this issue. Maine Coons are wonderful  breeds!

On the Cover, Dr Thornburgh, DVM has two beautiful Rottweiler’s posing for a photo shoot with the Best Pet Photographer in Northern California, Pet Prints Photography.

We hope your summer is off to a good start and will be full of adventure! Mark your calendars for the many great events, hosted by non-profits, happening in various area this summer. See inside for details.

Thank you for your continued support and readership.
