Why You Should Visit Your Vet Just to Say 'Hi'
A visit to the veterinarian can be stressful for pets. Unfamiliar smells and sounds, unfamiliar hands poking and prodding you with strange objects, and other animals possibly experiencing pain or fear surrounding you-all tend to make pets feel uncomfortable or fearful.

"Pets experience the white-coat effect just like people do and can become more anxious just by walking into the veterinary hospital... or even just being in the car," says Dr. Heather Loenser of Crown Veterinary Specialists in Lebanon, N.J., and a member of the AAHA Board of Directors. "Vets know this, and during the exam we often find higher heart rates and blood pressure than we would if we were sitting at home on your couch with your pet."

5 Common Mushrooms That Can Poison Your Pet
Mushroom poisoning in pets may be underestimated. Mushroom species can be difficult to nearly impossible for even mushroom experts (called mycologists) to identify. That difficulty is compounded by the fact that little is known about the potential toxicity of many species. Mushrooms reported as edible in Europe have been associated with toxicity cases in North America and vice versa. Mushroom toxicity reportedly can vary depending on habitat and/or what other plants or trees are growing nearby. And many mushrooms can contain more than one poisonous substance - Click Here to learn more. 
Airline Travel With Your Pet
As we get closer to the busy holiday travel season, it's time to think about whether your pet is going to join you on your journey. Air travel can require more preparation, especially if you're traveling to another country. As you will see below, traveling with your pet to another country may require many months of paperwork, vaccinating, tests and possibly even quarantine.

Halloween Pet Safety Tips
Halloween is coming up soon - the time of year for goblins and ghosts, trick-or-treaters and treats. These traditions don't change, but our knowledge of some of the hazards of Halloween does. For example, we've warned about not letting your pet eat sugarless candy or gum due to the possibility of xylitol exposure. Even small amounts of this sweetener can cause a rapid and dangerous drop in blood sugar, and can lead to acute liver failure. More and more products contain xylitol, including some candy, sugarless gum, baked goods, and even some brands of peanut butter. Trick-or-treat candy doesn't have the labeling you need to know if xylitol is present, making it even more important to keep Halloween treats put away in closed containers out of reach of your pets!
