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.

Veterinary Oral Health Council Seal of Approval for Pet Dental Products

toothbrush_dog.jpg

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.

diamondlamb.jpg

Looks like much of the Diamond Pet Food is a diamond in the rough. Since April 6, 2012, Diamond Pet Foods voluntarily recalled three dry dog food products. More information on these recalls, including the products subject to recall, can be found on the FDA website.

Now these multiple brands of dry pet food produced by Diamond Pet Foods at a single manufacturing facility in South Carolina have been linked to some of the human Salmonella infections. Read the CDC's Advice to Consumers.

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.

PetScoop: Dog Breeds Reflect the Owner's Personality

dogbreeds.jpg

Researchers have established links between owners' personality traits and the breed of dogs they preferred. The Press Association reports that the Kennel Club assisted the research conducted by scientists at Bath Spa University. Their findings:

Breeds were split into seven groups: gundogs (eg golden retriever), hound dogs (eg greyhound; beagle), pastoral (eg German shepherd; border collie), terrier (eg Staffordshire bull), toy (eg Chihuahua), utility (eg bulldog) and working (eg Doberman).

In particular, owners of pastoral and utility breeds were more extroverted, gundog and toy dog owners were more agreeable, and owners of utility, toy and gundogs were more conscientious. Owners of hound dogs turned out to be more emotionally stable, while owners of toy dogs were more open to new experiences.

To find out what kind of dog matches your lifestyle and personality, read more at Dog Breeds
