Home Sweet Home Pet Sitters: Travelling? Should You Take Your Cat?

SHOULD YOU TAKE YOUR CAT ON VACATION?

Cats do not enjoy change and taking them on trips is usually not a good idea.  Unless you are moving or going on an a very long vacation, get a pet sitter so your cat will not have to experience the stress of riding for hours or days in a crate and adjust to a new temporary living arrangement.

*Thanks to the Humane Society for being such an outstanding resource for people and their pets!

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.

FOODS YOUR DOG SHOULD NEVER EAT #10

SUGARY FOODS and DRINKS:

Too much sugar can do the same things to dogs that it does to humans.  It can lead to obesity, dental problems, and possibly the onset of diabetes.

FOODS YOUR DOG SHOULD NEVER EAT #6

MILK and OTHER DAIRY PRODUCTS:

On a hot day it may be tempting to share your ice cream cone with your dog.  If your dog could, it would thank you for not doing so.  Milk and milk-based products are simply not good for your dog!
