Vet Check - Well-Bird Check Up
I know there are differing opinions on the subject of
well-bird check ups. Some people believe in having your
apparently healthy parrot checked out once a year by a

they might not otherwise be exposed to.
The Importance of a Plan When Building a Reptile Cage
Would you put together a model plane without looking at the
finished plane picture or looking at the plans? Does a
builder build a house without a plan? The answer to these is
pretty clearly no. A homemade snake or other reptile cage
is so much simpler though, you say.
With Understanding Comes Success
One of the reasons I strongly encourage horse owners to
train their own horses rather than ship them away to a
professional trainer is familiarity. Quite simply, an
unfamiliar party will not understand your horse nearly as
well as you, and this understanding of a horse is the
backbone of any successful training plan.

Wormy Dogs? - Understand Dog Worms Infestation and Their Symptoms
Until a very recent period, dog worms were thought to be of
a spontaneous origin, brought about by the influence of
heat upon decaying vegetable matter, and it was and still
is freely asserted that puppies are born with dog worms
inherited from the mother in some mysterious manner while
still in uterus. This has been conclusively proven an error
and in the minds of all scientists there is no question
about dog worms springing from individual eggs and having a
complete life history of their own.
Antibiotics? I Think Not
Have you noticed that doctors are now being much more
reluctant to give you a prescription for antibiotics unless
it's proven that you are indeed suffering from a bacterial
infection? Well, I wish I could say better late than never,

Things You Should Never Feed Your Dog
Sadly, there are several household items which we tend to
take for granted that are potentially very hazardous to
your dog's health. It is especially important to be aware

Crate Training for Puppies and Dogs
Wondering how to begin crate training your puppy or dog, or

If You Want a Friend, Get a Dog!
Carl Icahn, the hostile takeover master who was THE
