Sounds easy and convenient, but where is proof of the Veterinary-Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites Accreditation? The customer needs to know they are purchasing drugs and devices from an online pharmacy that is properly licensed and complying with state and federal laws and regulations. We couldn't find the above seal on their site.

Two sites that do have the accreditation are PetCareRx and 1-800-PetMeds where you can save $5 off your order using code WEBC5 and save 5% on your order using code W5PER.

In our wild-west, deregulated economy, it is no surprise these days when products and services don't perform as advertised.

Pet owners are advised, and even harassed, to brush their pet's teeth, but who is to know what tools do an effective job?

Meaningless Plaque Promises | NewsforJax.com says consumers have to rely on themselves.

They recommend checking the package or container for the Veterinary Oral Health Council Seal (VOHC).

The VOHC authorizes the use of the VOHC Registered Seal on products intended to help retard plaque and tartar on the teeth of animals.

Click the link for the approved dental products. No surprise that Greenies are on the list.

PetScoop: Assess If You Can Afford It, Before You Adopt a Pet

Veterinarian_Cat.jpg

We love our pets and regard them as family members. But many of us were raised in an era when pets were exclusively animals, and they were cheap to live with.

It's heartwarming that we value our pets so highly these days, but it can cost us big-time, as this cat-lover discovered in Regrets of a Cat Owner | The Billfold:

What I'm trying to say is, before you get a pet, it's worth it to genuinely assess whether you can really, actually afford it. Think about it: $5,500 in three years. That averages out to about $150/month. More than a cable/HBO/high-speed Internet bundle!

...As I said, this all adds up to about $4,550 in vet- and health-related bills in just under three years. The remaining grand was spent on travel to and from the vet and/or general cat things, like kitty litter, generic dry cat food, cat bed, scratching post, things like that. Fun fact: $1,000 over 36 months actually comes out to $27/month, which is pretty much what I initially guessed, way back in 2009, when I was predicting how much owning a cat would cost me. Sigh.

Pet Scoop: Overweight Pets -- People Don't Always Realize the Health Consequences

obesepets.jpg

Many of us struggle with our weight, any why not? It's so fun to eat and there's always plenty of food around. And it's no different for our pets. The Costs of Having a Fat Dog or Cat | NYTimes.com cites a recent study by the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention that found about half of all dogs and cats in American homes are overweight or obese, a slight increase from 2010.

Why be concerned? People likely realize their pet is overweight but won't always grasp the consequences. Seeing animals suffering from health conditions secondary to their obesity is a common situation according to vets. This means animal suffering, higher vet costs, increased pet insurance premiums, inability to walk or self-groom, and sometimes even putting the beloved pet to sleep.

But before you subject your pet to a drastic diet or start an exercise regimen, check with your vet. That too can have negative health consequences.

But getting a portly pet back into shape can carry risks of its own. Hammering the pavement with an overweight lab or boxer that also happens to be arthritic can worsen the condition and cause cruciate ligament tears, akin to an A.C.L. injury in humans, which can happen all too easily in dogs, said Dr. Carol McConnell, chief veterinary medical officer for VPI Pet Insurance.

Pet owners should consult with a veterinarian before putting a pet on a diet. Putting a cat on a strict diet without medical supervision is risky, because cats' metabolism cannot handle calorie restriction. Unlike dogs, which evolved to hunt as packs and can go days without eating, "cats are usually single predators," Dr. McConnell said. "They nibble, they eat whatever they can find. They don't do too well with starvation."

In cats, severe calorie restriction can signal the body to send stores of fat to the liver, where they can be converted to glucose. But over time, the liver is deluged with fat deposits, crowding out the normal cells of the liver and causing hepatitis.

Early Season for Ticks -- Is Your Pet Protected?

ticks_on_dogs.jpg

Due to the exceptionally warm winter in many locations, ticks are thriving. So our vets are already seeing some doggies with tick-borne illnesses, such as Lyme disease.

Is your pet protected? If you haven't already, stock up on preventive products, such as Frontline (prescription only), Revolution, Advantix, or the Preventic collar.

For high-risk dogs and cats who spend a lot of time in fields and woods, back it up with Ovitrol, which quickly kills and repels fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, lice and flies.
