The weekly wrap-up: Your new best friend is waiting for you
Monday, Feb 6th, 2012
Guess I was too busy first with church and then with all those Super Bowl ads* to get this done yesterday. But here’s what I wrote about last week for Vetstreet:
Adult cats have a hard time finding new homes sometimes, in part because cats are often shy around new people. And that’s a shame, because an adult cat is the perfect match for many living situations. Better yet, adopt a bonded pair. Here’s what to look for at the shelter.
That was Monday. On Tuesday, I went video, with segment on how to prevent illness in your cat:
Adult dog or puppy? As you can imagine, over my lifetime I’ve had great dogs of all shapes and sizes, and it hasn’t mattered if I adopted as an adult dog or found a great puppy from a reputable breeder. I’ve done both. On Wednesday, I offered some thoughts to a reader wondering what was the best choice. My answer? It depends.
I wrapped up the week with a topic very dear to my heart: How to plan now for the financial demands of a sick pet. There are few things more important to know when caring for your pet. Read and ask yourself: Am I prepared? Your pet’s life depends on your answer.
*Those Super Bowl ads: I loved the work my Vetstreet colleagues did in pulling them all together for our readers. What was your favorite animal-related ad?
