Is your bird a seed only eater? Did you know in that wild
seeds form only a small portion of the natural diet? While
seeds are an important part of a pet parrot's daily diet
they should not comprise all of it. Parrots are
opportunistic omnivores, which in plain English means they
eat whatever they encounter in their day ("opportunistic")
and, like us, eat from all the food groups - veggies &
fruits, grain, and animal protein ("omnivores").

Cleft Palate In
Sometimes puppies are born that can't suckle properly, and

Dog Training: Teaching
Your Dog Self-Control
Is your dog one of those that pulls at his leash constantly
whenever there is a distraction? A child walks by, or he
sees another dog? If a cat or small animal scoots by, or if
a car whooshes in front of him, does he tug to get closer?
Is he hard to manage while visiting the vet, or when you
have visitors? If the answer is yes to any of these
questions, then your dog training needs to include
self-control measures. A child is taught similar things
when they are growing up (don't put your hand on the stove,
or you can't have a cookie unless you ask, first), a dog
requires the same kind of love and attention, too.

So, You've Decided To
Kill Your Pet!
The other day I was doing a research online for an article
I was writing and I came across an article, which the
author started by saying: "Euthanasia, is often the hardest
thing to do, yet the greatest act of kindness" Then he went
on explaining the "grueling" suffering and the guilt the
pet owner goes through before making the decision, how it
affects the whole family, especially the kids. But then he
explains euthanasia in the most loving way I've ever seen
someone describe a murder.
As our horses enjoy a longer life and many live well into
old age so the number of horses with Cushing increases as
its more common in older horses especially ponies. It can
however affect all breeds and ages.
