Need a detox after all the Halloween treats?! You can give your pet’s diet a boost with many different kinds of veggies & fruit, like:
🥗 Spinach is a super food for both pets and people, loaded with vitamins and minerals. It can help fend off inflammatory and cardiovascular issues
🍐 Pears are a great source for fiber, folic acid, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, copper, pectin and contain a ton of vitamins
🌿 Rosemary is high in iron, calcium, and Vitamin B6. Rosemary has also been shown to act as an antioxidant
🍎 Apples are high in fiber and low in fat. They are a great addition for pets needing to shed a few pounds
Despite the rain, we hope you and your furry family members have a safe & fun Halloween! Here are a couple of safety tips to keep in mind:
🎃 Create a pet-safe zone - with the door opening and closing all evening, try keeping your pet in a closed room or in a crate if crate-trained
👻 Keep them occupied - give your pets lots of toys to play with, and turn on the TV or radio to keep them distracted
🎃 Keep costumes comfortable, and remove them when you're not nearby to supervise. While alone, your pet could get tangled in the fabric or ingest some of the material
👻 Indoors is the safest place for your pet. The constant bustle of children can be intimidating and overwhelming for them
🎃 Watch out for dropped snacks! There may be lots of things on the ground that aren’t meant for your pet. Small parts from damaged costumes, wrappers or dropped chocolate treats can be dangerous to your dog if swallowed

Faced with the unexpected events in life that our cats and dogs face on a daily basis, it is difficult to obtain the assurance that when they need it, we will really be able to offer them access to the best care.
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the introduction of the first Pet Health Insurance program in Canada. Over time, these programs have proven their worth by saving the lives and improving the health of countless cats and dogs.
Afin de souligner le 30e anniversaire de l'arrivée du premier programme d'assurance au Canada, l'AMVQ a décidé de créer la toute première Journée nationale de l'assurance animale. En 2017, près d'un quart de millions de chats et de chiens bénéficiaient d'une couverture d'assurance.

Are your pets bothered by noise? If the roar of a thunderstorm or the crackling of fireworks sends your pet into an anxious frenzy, try out these tips:
1. 👍 Stay calm. Your pet can sense your energy and if you are stressed, they will be too
2. 🏠 Create a safe space for your pet to retreat to like a den or crate
3. 🎵 Let the music play! There are CD's designed to help pets overcome their fear of noise by slowly introducing the scary sounds underneath the main track
Chocolate isn't the only "people food" that's toxic to pets, even though we hear about it the most. Avocados, grapes, onions, garlic, sugar-free treats, coffee, tea, and macadamia nuts are some other foods to avoid.
