How to Stop a Cat From Interrupting Your Work

 

If you work from home, are a student, or just like to occasionally get things done around your house, cats can be a nuisance! Working as pet sitters, we love cats and when we go for visits, all we are there to do is pay attention to them, but we understand the difficulties of trying to get work done at home. Really you just have to figure out what your cats wants and how to provide it in a way that works for you AND your cat.

What Vaccines Does My Pet Need?

 

Welcome to Our Pet Care Tips Series!

Thanks for following our Pet Care Tips Series where each week we talk to an animal expert in our community to get you one tip that every pet lover should know.

Guest of the Week: Dr. Debbie Sunken with Country Companions Veterinary Service

It seems like discussions about vaccines are popping up everywhere, whether it be for dogs, cats or humans. Humans are not our thing here, but Dr. Debbie Sunken was kind enough to join us to discuss the different types of vaccines your pet can and should receive. First she talks about what information you need to give your veterinarian so he/she can give you the best recommendations for your dog or cat. Then she tells us the differences between viral and bacterial vaccines and the basics of how they work. Nothing too complicated but it explains why different vaccines last for different lengths of time before needing a booster.

Then Dr. Sunken tells us about commonly seen vaccinations in dogs and cats and talks about why each is important. She includes a few dog and cat vaccines that have been getting a lot of hype lately but might not be the best for your pets.

This is a longer video that we normally do but it is packed full of information and I did not want to leave any out! If you are wondering if your dog or cat really needs all those shots, then this is the interview for you!
