No and How Your Dog Understands the Word
The word “no,” like any other word, carries to your dog the meaning it has occupied in the dog’s life, as part of the dog’s history. You might as well say “Gurp” or whatever other odd sound you can spell with letters, for the entire actual meaning no” as a word has to a dog. Whatever sound you utter, the tone of your voice and the body movements you make at the same time will affect how your dog perceives the sound, just as it does with humans.

Safe on the Fourth of July
If there's one holiday that's not popular at U.S. shelters and veterinary emergency hospitals, it's probably the Fourth of July. That's because the fireworks and other celebrations of this midsummer bash trigger pet care tragedies -- a flow of lost pets, sick pets and injured pets.

Dealing with Pet Loss
Knowing that you're not alone in your grief is important, as is realizing that the loss of a pet is a unique experience for each individual. Factors that play into how the loss is handled include whether the death was sudden or followed a prolonged illness, whether the pet owner had to elect euthanasia, whether it was the first time the person experienced losing a pet, and the person's living situation.

Most dog owners recognize that puppies do not come pre-trained and that there will have to be some effort on their part to teach the puppy where to go . However, some new dog owners or those who haven’t done it or raised a puppy in years, fail to realize just how difficult and time-consuming the process can be.

Draft and Carting Tests
Draft and carting tests are non-competitive, and every precaution is taken to make them safe for the dogs. Most actual cart-pulling by dogs these days happens in public settings such as parades, so test rules specifically state that carts can be decorated.

VetzInsight: A Different Place to Learn
The same folks who provide Veterinary Partner also offer a blog called VetzInsight. Rather than explain what occurs in a disease process and how to treat it - which was Veterinary Partner offers - our goal is not only to inform on larger issues but to tap into the numerous emotions at play within the human-animal bond. We're here to learn and have fun. If you're interested in learning more about a broader look at veterinary medicine, the veterinarians, the clients, and the patients, VetzInsight is a great learning experience.
