Sign Up for Pet First Aid Classes  

One hour after giving a pet first aid talk on stage at the San Diego Pet Expo, Pet Tech certified instructor Arden Moore rushed to an adoption tent to break up a fight between two Jack Russell terriers in a small cage. In the fight, both dogs got bloody. This is the photo of Arden tending to the attacked dog. Fortunately, injuries were minor and both dogs are okay. But it serves as a reminder of how important it is to know what to do in a pet emergency when minutes count. Be your dog or cat's best health ally by signing up for a hands-on pet first aid, safety, CPR and wellness class taught by Arden and earn a certificate.

Depending on the class, you might even get to practice your skills on Arden's very tolerant class aides: her dog, Chipper and her cat, Zeki! Next class: Oct. 29 in Oceanside. Register today by contacting Arden and visit her new pet first aid site called Pet First Aid 4 U. Play it safe - for your pet's sake!

Have a Spook-tacular Howl-i-ween!  



Recently, Arden Moore was a guest pet expert on Martha Stewart's Living Radio Show and shared these ways to prevent Halloween from turning into YOWL-i-ween for your pets: 

  • Keep chocolate candy and sugar-free gum out of paw's reach - both can be toxic if ingested by dogs and cats.
  • Maintain your pet's dignity. Not all four-leggers enjoy being dressed in costumes. Make sure the costume allows your pet to see and move easily.
  • Treat your dog to a fun romp or game of fetch during Halloween day. A tired dog is a happy dog.
  • Keep cats, especially black ones, inside on Halloween night.
  • Usher your pets into a room with pet amenities while catering to the door-bell ringing trick-or-treaters to reduce stress and prevent them from darting out the front door.

And no tricks, here are a couple of treats you can win just in time for Halloween! The feline-friendly folks at Imperial Cat have delighted cats for many generations with their creatively-designed corrugated cardboard scratchers. Be the 5th and 10th person to email Arden with the code word, scratchers, and you will win either the hanging Halloween skeleton scratcher or the horizontal Halloween scratcher  and Imperial Cat Company will deliver your prize just in time for Halloween!  






Next treat: Delight your cat with the Catspurr Halloween toy shaped like a friendly ghost from DuckyWorld  




This toy is filled with the best organically grown catnip in the world - sure to get your feline to yeowww with excitement! Score this prize by being the 7th to email Arden with the code words, Ducky World.  


Hey, dogs! We are giving away two Lickety Stiks™ - the brand-new, tasty liquid dog treat made with 100-percent all-natural ingredients. It features a special roller-ball top that lets dogs lick without packing on the pounds. It's just 1 calorie per 10 licks and comes in three flavors: smoky bacon, savory chicken and braised liver. Be the 3rd and 5th person to email Arden with the code words, Lickety Stik, and win this mess-free treat for your dog!

Zeki's Fabulous Feline Adventures! 
Arden Moore's always-up-for-new-adventures Turkish Van mix named Zeki is back from two appearances: first she me-wowed the crowd at SuperZoo in Las Vegas and then won over more feline fans at the San Diego Pet Expo. Who says all cats are homebodies? For both events, Zeki took cat naps inside a zebra-striped kitty condo, complements of Sturdi Products.   

At SuperZoo, Zeki received an autographed baseball by Hall of Famer Orel Hershiser, accepted butt sniffs from Tillman, the famous skateboard-surfboard riding Bulldog and nearly became the ring bearer for a wedding in the Elvis chapel! Catch all the action from SuperZoo by tuning in to the special Oh Behave episode on Pet Life Radio by clicking HERE. And, check out these short videos of Zeki and Arden Moore from SuperZoo:
