HOME SWEET HOME PETSITTERS: PETS IN TODAY’S ECONOMY

 

Home Sweet Home Pet Sitters recognizes all to well how devastating these difficult financial times can be.  Many people are struggling just to put food on the table for their families.  You’ve always managed to give your pet the medical care she needs and deserves, but due to unexpected circumstances, you’re faced with vet expenses that are far beyond your ability to afford them.  We are seeing this all to often over the past few years.  We did some research and the good news is that financial aid is out there, and there are steps you can take to cover an emergency vet bill as well as companies in the pet industry that are willing to help.  Home Sweet Home Pet Sitters has been caring for Charlotte Area pets since 1999 and are strong supporters of many outstanding organizations dedicated to the well-being of pets.  We suggest that you check out the links below as they provide a wealth of information on this subject along with a comprehensive list of financial aid-related organizations.

We will continue to update our page with the growing list of companies that are offering discounts on food and other pet-related items as we find them.

        Home Sweet Home Pet Sitters of the Charlotte – Matthews Area would like to again express our appreciation to The Humane Society for the outstanding work they do !

FOODS YOUR DOG SHOULD NEVER EAT #7

RAW EGGS:

There are two problems with giving your dog raw eggs.  The first is the possibility of food poisoning from bacteria like Salmonella or E. coli.  The second is that an enzyme in raw eggs interferes with the absorption of a particular B vitamin.  This can cause skin problems as well as problems with your dog’s coat if raw eggs are fed for a long time.  Home Sweet Home Pet Sitters wants you to keep that special member of the family healthy!
