Chicago, Bloomington-Normal dog owners warned about influenza
Veterinarians and the Illinois State Veterinary Medical Association are warning dog owners in the Chicago and Bloomington-Normal areas that the new canine influenza virus, H3N2, is a threat to dogs and possibly cats. There have been 35 confirmed canine influenza cases among dogs seen at three clinics in the Bloomington-Normal area. Experts recommend talking with a veterinarian about vaccination for dogs and restricting exposure to other animals in regions where the virus is spreading.

GoGo Stik Review – Never bend over to scoop Fido’s poop again!

I’ll never bend over to pick up my dogs’ poop again! I’ll never worry that my fingers will poke through the bag during scooping again! I’ll never have to use the ‘claw’ to try and get all of the poop out of the grass again! I’ll never have to worry about keeping the dirty scooper away from my body when walking again!
With the GoGo Stik I can actually catch the dogs’ poop before it ever hits the ground! And if I don’t get there in time, a quick flick of the wrist and the poop is in the bag without any mess, and nothing is left behind on the grass for me (or a neighbor) to step in later! Once the poop is in the bag, I can walk with the dog without worrying about getting ‘anything’ on me, either. The way the bag hangs after a ‘deposit’, it sort of closes itself for the remainder of the walk, too (the bag hangs down and the opposite side of the scooping section presses against the outside of the bag, essentially closing the bag at the middle – but not to worry – the bag opens right back up when needed again!). I’m using less bags – one per walk instead of one per dog, so I’m saving money and the planet by reducing the amount of plastic in the landfill. LOVE IT!

‘Dogs eat crazy things’: Vets remove toys from puppy’s tummy

This photo provided by Michael Ehrlich shows his 6-month-old Cane Coro named Jasper at home in Philadelphia. The puppy swallowed two large plastic balls, which remained lodged in his stomach probably for a few weeks, according to Ehrlich. They were surgically retrieved on Saturday, Dec. 26, 2015, and within a few days Jasper was already back on his feet. Michael Ehrlich via AP

Now your pets can poop at the airport like the civilized creatures they are!

Now your pets can poop at the airport like the civilized creatures they are!

Kennedy Airport may be in the toilet for fliers, but now it’s No. 1 with their pets.

The airport last week opened a pet potty — complete with fake grass and a red fire hydrant — in Terminal 4. And the single-stall bathroom, which is decorated with paw prints and lined with Epoxy and waterproof turf, is already making jet-setting pet owners purr.
