More Myths About Spaying and Neutering Dispelled (https://goo.gl/a3Aa2M)

There are many reasons people may be hesitant to spay or neuter their dog. Here are a few of them.

MYTH: I want my dog to be protective.
FACT: Neutering and spaying don't affect a dog's instinct to protect its family or home. Their personality is formed by their environment and genetics instead of sex hormones.

MYTH: I don't want my male dog or cat to feel like less of a male.
FACT: Pets don't have a concept of ego or sexual identity. It won't change a dog's personality to neuter them, and they won't have an identity crisis or emotional reaction.

MYTH: But my dog (or cat) is so special, I want a puppy (or kitten) just like her.
FACT: Just because your current dog or cat is amazing doesn't mean that their offspring will be the same. Even people who breed professionally can't promise exactly what will come out of a litter.

MYTH: It's too expensive to have my pet spayed or neutered.
FACT: There are many factors that depend on the cost of getting your pet neutered or spayed. These include the vet's fees, the size, sex, and age of your pet, as well as other factors. However, it's a one time cost that will be much cheaper than the health problems associated with not neutering your pet.

New Puppy Checklist (https://goo.gl/TG6otj)

If you just got a new dog, you're probably overwhelmed with joy. While you're having fun playing with them, you'll also want to make sure you have all the supplies you need. Here are a few to keep in mind.

High-quality dog food - Don't be tempted to get food for them just because it's cheap. They need nutritious food as they grow from a puppy to an adult dog. Ask your vet for suggestions on the best one for them.

Water and food bowls - Get ones that don't tip over and sit on the floor. They're bound to make a mess when they're younger, so this will make it easier for everyone. A good choice is stainless steel bowls since they're indestructible.

ID tags - It's important for all dogs to have proper identification, but especially puppies. They don't have the loyalty that older dogs have and will get more distracted to go explore a new sight or sound. Have their name, your name, your phone number, and the name and number of your veterinarian.

How to Have Your Senior Cat Live Longer (https://goo.gl/usYFMf)

You love your feline friend and want them to have a long life with you. There are ways to help them live even longer while still being healthy. Cats tend to live longer lives than other animals, but that doesn't mean they don't get the same health problems and diseases as them. These issues can come on suddenly as they get older, but it can be decreased by bringing them to the vet on a regular basis.

They may not act like anything is wrong, but it's hard to tell since they can't talk. Many senior cats get issues that you can't detect easily. Having them come in for regular visits lets the vet establish a baseline for them so it's easy to see if anything has changed at future visits. This will allow us to perform tests right away for further investigation.

Many cats get arthritis and dental disease as they age, so it's necessary to treat it early on. Your cat might need to come in twice a year depending on what their symptoms are and how old they are.

Catios (Yes, Cat Patios) Are the New Way to Pamper Mr. Whiskers (https://goo.gl/X5siDN)

Taking care of your cat's health is important, but sometimes you also want to have some fun with them as well. A new company is making that possible with catios, or patios for cats. Not everyone feels comfortable having an outdoor cat, so this makes it possible for indoor cats to get some fresh air as well.

With these new contraptions, cats can be in nature without being in danger of fast cars going by, predators, or even bullying from the mean cat in the neighborhood. You're also protecting birds that hang out on your bird feeder from becoming your cat's next meal. This space is especially helpful for those who have small apartments or houses, as the cat box can be put here to be better ventilated.

You can get everything from just a window box to a large free-standing structure that will go to your home through a tunnel. This idea is genius - you'll feel safer about your cat being outdoors and they'll feel more satisfied!

Random Dog Facts (https://goo.gl/xE9eH4)

Here are some random facts about dogs!

The Newfoundland dog was originally bred to help people who were drowning and haul nets for local fishermen. This is due to their webbed feet and a water-resistant coat.

There's a rumor that the Beatles wrote a song with a special part for dogs. Supposedly Paul Cartney wrote, "A Day in the Life" with an ending that has an ultrasonic whistle and is only audible for dogs. He had a Shetland sheepdog he was fond of.

Adult dogs have 42 teeth, while puppies have 28 teeth.

Ever wonder why your dog chases its tail? There are a number of reasons! It can be due to exercise, predatory instinct, curiosity, or anxiety. Another reason might be that they have fleas, so take them to your vet if you're worried about that.

Did you know that Dalmatians aren't born with spots? They're all-white when they first come out and develop their spots later in life.

If dogs seem like they don't stumble around in the dark, it's because they have night vision. A special membrane is in their eyes, called tapetum lucidum, so they can see in the dark.

Training Tips to Strengthen Your Bond With Your Dog (https://goo.gl/cVjXv4)

Having a hard time training your dog? Try these tips!

Try Tricks
Each dog should understand what the basics of good manners are in the house, such as down, stay, come, and sit. They should also have a few fun tricks up their sleeves (or paws) to show off how smart they are and have fun. Give your dog treats to encourage them to want to learn tricks.

Once they learn the tricks, make sure to keep practicing them on a regular basis. Many owners stop this once the dog learns them, but this means they'll forget them over time.

Praise Them Often
When you first brought your dog home, you most likely gave them plenty of praise. As the years have gone on, you might have stopped doing this. Make sure to always let them know when you're happy with their good behavior so they'll keep it up. You can do this when they retrieve the ball or go to the bathroom in the correct spot. It will ensure that their good behavior continues.

Myths and Facts About Spaying and Neutering (https://goo.gl/a3Aa2M)

There are many myths that surround spaying and neutering. Here are some of the more common ones.

My pet can't because they're a purebred.
One out of every four pets that get brought to an animal shelter is a purebred. They should still get the same sterilization to protect against health problems in the future.

I want my dog to be protective.
Neutering or spaying doesn't affect the dog's natural instinct to protect their family and home. Their personality is formed by their environment and genetics rather than their sex hormones.

I don't want my male dog or cat to feel like less of a male.
Pets don't understand the concept of an ego or sexual identity. This won't change their personality and they won't have an identity crisis when they get neutered.

But my dog (or cat) is so special, I want a puppy (or kitten) just like her.
Just because you have a great pet doesn't mean they'll produce the same offspring. Even professional breeders can't guarantee they'll have specific traits.

10 Easy Ways to Show Your Dog Affection (https://goo.gl/eRTmwo)

We all live busy lives, and it can be hard to make time to show your dog affection sometimes. Even taking an extra 10 minutes out of your day to show your dog love will go a long way. You can play fetch for a few minutes after work and cuddle with them on the couch at night. This will show them you love them even when your life is chaotic.

When you leave during the day, make sure your dog isn't bored. This includes leaving a few toys that can keep them entertained. Those that can be stuffed with a treat are even better so they're challenged while trying to get it out.

While many people pat their dogs on the head, they might take this as a sign of dominance. Instead, massage the backs of their ears or massage their bellies. This will relax them and show signs of affection. Even brushing them with a softer brush will make them feel loved (and will get rid of their extra hair!).

Bring Your Pet to Our Neuter and Spay Clinic in Citrus Heights (https://goo.gl/a3Aa2M)

It's important to neuter and spay your pets so they have happier and healthier lives. Female cats and dogs spayed by having their reproductive organs removed. Male cats and dogs have their testicles removed when they're neutered. The operation is always done while the animal is under anesthesia. They may stay at the office for a few hours or even a day depending on the pet's size, health, and age. Some pets will need to get stitches taken out a few days later.

Neutering and spaying help cats and dogs live healthier, longer lives. It decreases or eliminates the number of health issues that may have that are expensive or difficult to treat. The possibility of ovarian or uterine cancer is eliminated when a female animal is spayed. This also greatly decreases their risk of breast cancer, especially when it's done before their first estrous cycle.

When a male dog or cat is neutered, it will eliminate testicular cancer and decrease the risk of prostate disease. Spaying and neutering make animals more affectionate as well. Neutered cats are less likely to mark or spray their territory, while spayed dogs or cats won't have a heat cycle. When they're in heat, they'll attract the attention of unwanted male suitors, cry constantly, and act nervous.
