Protecting Your Dog From Diabetes

You may be surprised and disheartened if you learn that your dog has diabetes. But with proper care, your beloved pup can live a long and healthy life. Just like in human beings, this form of condition is marked by a lack of insulin, the hormone that keeps blood sugar in check. When an animal or human has diabetes, its muscles have trouble converting glucose into energy. An excess of glucose builds up in the blood, causing a state of hyperglycemia. If left untreated, this will develop into severe health problems. Types of Diabetes Type I The cells responsible for

Conquering An Invisible Threat

By Cesar Millan When we adopt a dog we make a promise, which is a commitment to provide for their needs for the rest of their lives. This doesn’t just mean feeding them and walking them, though. If a dog has behavioral issues, it is our responsibility to figure out what’s causing them and to solve the problem. Returning a misbehaving dog to a shelter is not an option. And if a dog has health issues, we are also responsible for doing what is necessary to take care of them. But providing for a dog’s health doesn’t just mean going

And, of course, rescue organizations have swung into action to help not only people affected by the flood, but their animals — including dogs, cats, horses, and cattle.

Putting A Leash On NYC Dog Sitters

While the gig economy might be great for people who want to make extra money driving around strangers or renting out apartments to tourists, it isn’t necessarily great for others — like licensed cab drivers or tenants who get evicted so their landlords can make more money. This why many cities have been cracking down on unlicensed service providers, like rideshare apps Uber and Lyft, and short-term rental app Air BnB. This isn’t just an American phenomenon, either. It’s been happening in cities like Barcelona and Hong Kong, and in India in general. The reasons pretty much come down to
