Are you finding yourself wondering if you bought a cow instead of a dog? You may be asking yourself if this is normal behavior and if it’s good for him. So, let’s dig a little deeper into this doggy behavior.
Most veterinarians consider this activity to be normal and has also been observed in wild dogs as well. It’s more common than you might think, so you don’t really have to be concerned about them eating grass. Pica, the disorder that is characterized by eating non-food things, could indicate a nutritional imbalance or alert you to some boredom that is commonly found in puppies and younger dogs. Sometimes, dogs eat grass out of pure boredom. Find some new activities or take your dog to your local Petland and pick out some new sturdy toys that will keep him occupied.
While grazing on your lawn may not be harmful, you need to make sure to work on curbing your dog’s appetite for grass. Herbicides or pesticides that may have been used can be very toxic to dogs, along with certain types of vegetation.

There is a lot that your dog's poop can tell you about their health. Color-wise chocolate brown indicates good health however keep an eye out for the colors gray, green, or orange that could indicate that there may be an issue. The ideal poop formation is log-shaped not hard but soft, watch out for watery, frequently large volume, or pebble-sized poops that may also indicate issues about your dog's health.
Harmful blue-green algae has been found in Lake of the Isles, Cedar Lake, and Lake Nokomis. It was just announced by the MPRB (Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board) that conditions are improving, but we still recommend being cautious. The water can be fatal to dogs if they drink the algae. #twincities#pethealth

I am a very proud #dogmom to this beautiful #cockerspaniel Her name is Driving Miss Fancy, she will be 15 yrs old July 6th. #seniordogsrock .
2018 she was diagnosed with #PLE ( #proteinlossenteropathy ), it has been touch and go over the years as her albumin levels have been dangerously low. That was until recently.
She just had lab work completed, for the first time in two years, her albumin levels are almost normal, where they should be. What changed?
She has been on a special diet over the course of the two years, keeping her stable. Then, six months ago, I started her on @earthbuddypet Gut Health. Not only does this product contain #hemp ( #cbd ) which helps with #IBD related issues, also has colostrum.
Yep, that is what changed, supplementing her special diet with hemp and colostrum. Even her vet last night asked, "what are you doing? because whatever you are doing, keep doing because her panels look great!"
Would like to learn more, send us a message <3 We are here to help you, your pet and your pet's veterinarian team. 🐾🌱

Summer is just around the corner and the weather is finally warming up. Elbow hygromas are common in the summer as dogs tend to look for cool places to lay. This often means avoiding carpeting and soft bedding to lay on hard, cold surfaces. Unfortunately, this can put excessive pressure on the elbow joints. Dog elbow hygromas shouldn't keep you and your dog inside this summer. Treat and prevent elbow hygromas with Standard Length Adjustable DogLeggs®. These supports provide an excellent alternative to traditional bandages. The unique design of the hygroma support ensures quick application and removal, reducing stress for both you and your pet. Please contact us for more information about DogLeggs’® effective elbow hygroma support.

Rabies is an acute, fatal viral infectious disease that causes inflammation of the brain and spinal cord. Rabies is transmitted through saliva, so it is possible to infect a sick animal not only with its bites, but also with lick. In humans, this deadly infection can enter through the smallest skin wounds. 🧐
Very dangerous low bleeding or head bites. The incubation period of the disease is quite diverse. The shortest is 7-8 days, but usually lasts a few weeks. Animals infected with rabies always die because rabies viruses damage the brain and spinal cord.

The Afghan Hound is our pet-supps Dog of the Day.
The Afghan Hound is loyal, dignified and very intelligent. .
Standing as tall as 27 inches at the shoulder, they make for a tall, lean and very athletic dog.
Afghan Hounds do require daily brushing and trips to the groomer, however rather infrequent when it comes to shedding.
These Beautiful K9s are bred to hunt and chase prey by sight. They have a strong instinct to run off in pursuit of perceived prey. Walking offleash is not advised.
These pups require a lot of exercise and short walks will not do the trick. Long runs are ideal when they are at full maturity. .
Make sure to have a high fence as they love to jump and will clear a short fence no problem.
You can expect your hound to weigh roughly 60 lbs and live to be around 12 to 15 years.
Current popularity of this breed per AKC is ranked 113 out of 195.
If you are someone who loves you're Afghan Hound, let us know in the comments!

What the heck is DIATOMACEOUS EARTH?? Sounds like it’s from when the dinosaurs roamed around.🦕🦖
Well, truth be told it's a powder formed by fossilized remains of diatoms (type of hard shelled algae).
The best part is it’s 100% natural. It’s an organic and naturopathic grade food product and it contains 15 trace minerals! It’s anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-parasitic and anti-fungal.🙌🏼
It’s so effective at thoroughly cleansing your digestive system by gently removing build up, toxins, metals and parasites. (remember my chat in my stories about the full moon tomorrow?!)
It is also naturally high in silica, which is necessary for bone, hair, nail and skin growth. It can also help restore body tissue and improve digestion.
So what else can you do with DE? I like making diy deodorant, natural bug and pest repellant, at our camp sites, pet health, face masks, diy toothpaste and more..
What do you use Diatomaceous earth for??
**IMPORTANT: It is important to make sure it’s FOOD GRADE for consumption. Other forms of DE are not considered safe and can be harmful to your lungs when inhaled.

(Almost) Dr. Self officially reported for duty this morning! I am so happy to have finally received the coveted ‘white coat’ after three years of hard work. I’m even happier to now be working in the hospital alongside my classmates (at a social distance, of course) 🐶🐱 #vetmedicine#pethealth#countdowntodr
Last month, we shared a ‘cat emergency’ checklist with all the essentials you should have at home “just in case”. (Swipe to see it) 🚨 ⠀
One of the items that got many comments was a Pet First Aid Kit. Several of you were asking what should be in it, so we created another checklist. ❤️⠀
Please note❗️We highly recommend every pet owner to take a pet first aid course. Being able to use the items from your pet first aid kit safely and appropriately is just as important as actually having a pet first aid kit ready. 🐈🐶Several organizations offer such courses online. 💻 ⠀
Do you have a pet first aid kit, and what’s in it? 👏🏻
