Signs And Symptoms That Your Dog Is In Pain

  When people are in pain, it’s pretty hard to miss most of the time. We complain about our aching back. We yell out because we’ve stepped on something pointy. We limp because it hurts to put pressure on a leg. We lay down in the middle of the day in complete silence and darkness because we have a migraine.

And while things like limping or whining every time they put

Nail Clipping Tips

Do you hear that clicking sound when your dog walks on a hard surface? That means he’s overdue for a nail clipping. Keeping your dogs nails trimmed is a vital part of the dog-grooming process. This is particularly important because if they get too long, it can cause health problems, such as torn nails and even broken toes. For a lot of people, though, the process can be intimidating, especially if their dog doesn’t like having its paws touched or held. There’s also the risk of injury by cutting too far down. But it doesn’t have to be a daunting

Dogs Crying: What Does It Mean

    At some point you may have looked down at your dog and noticed watery eyes. It’s easy to assume that the dog is crying, but those tears are actually caused by something other than emotions. We know that dogs can sense our emotions, and we know they are capable of grief, but can they cry real, emotional tears? Dogs are compassionate and sensitive animals.

How To Bathe Your Dog

If you watch people bathing dogs in movies and TV shows, most of the time it seems like a joyous, fun-filled time for all involved. Unfortunately, bathing your dog in real life isn’t always such a positive experience. Dogs don’t mind being dirty and stinky — in fact, they like it quite a bit — and many aren’t afraid to put up a fight if they think that it will help them get out of bath time. And while watching a favorite actor run after a dog covered in soap suds may seem hilarious, it’s a lot less fun when
