The medical needs of dogs and cats are pretty familiar, but would you know what to do if you had an emergency with your pet bird?
For instance, a while back here at Super Cool Pets HQ our cockatiel flew right up into a swirling ceiling fan and broke a wing.
To get a leg up on a bird medical emergency, we now keep a First Aid Kit for Birds close by to easily handle minor injuries and stabilize serious wounds.

Our dogs love to look beautiful--it's just that their idea of beauty (covered in mud) and ours can be miles apart. Grooming a dog regularly helps keep him/her in good health. Their family can keep an eye out potential physical issues and stop the spread of dirt, fleas, and germs that crop up all too often.
However, professional grooming is one more household expense. So how about DIY? If you want to try doggy grooming in the privacy of your own home, Jorge Bendersky, a celebrity dog groomer in New York City, has just released a how-to DIY Dog Grooming, From Puppy Cuts to Best in Show: Everything You Need to Know, Step by Step. He grooms Manhattan area dogs and consults on dog grooming, having appeared on Animal Planet, The Today Show, ABC Nightline, CW11, and E! News, and in the New York Post, the New York Daily News, the Chicago Tribune, and more.
DIY Dog Grooming has practical step-by-step tips and photos to teach you how to bathe and trim your dog, plus care for his/her nails, ears, teeth, and more. Included are solutions to common problems like fleas and ticks, dirt and mud. Dog too tense for grooming? You can learn how to train your dog to relax and enjoy grooming.
