Does your dog circle a bunch of times before laying down? Probably. Did that ever seem odd to you? After all, how many times do you circle on top of your mattress and comforter before bed? I would get dizzy and vomit so my answer is, “none times.” But what’s this behavior about? Raise a Paw is asking, does your dog spin right ’round?
In case you didn’t know you shouldn’t let your pet eat just anything that they find and feel like chowing on. The world is not their buffet and for very good reasons. Aside from the standard trash and people food that isn’t good for them, your pet can get in to foods, plants, flowers, vegetables that aren’t meant to be eaten by them or by anyone that can make them really sick or even kill them.
Mushrooms would be at the top of this list, specifically the one known as a “Death Cap Mushroom,” (pictured below). In case it wasn’t clear this particular mushroom is called “Death Cap” because it can easily kill your pet and up until now there has been no immediate treatment/cure that could prevent that. Curious about an article that Sonia sent to me Raise A Paw is incredibly interested to know, is there finally an antidote for poison mushrooms?
Raise A Paw has been out of action for a bit but is back with a bounce despite the toasty heat wave we’re having here on the east coast. If I currently didn’t need a job to survive, I would be on the beach all day every day soaking up the rays from a float in the ocean watching the pooches play in the sand and relaxing under trees. The only thing missing would be beach cats. I mean, does such a thing even exist? Why if pups are (seemingly) allowed on the beach (though often not here in New York) don’t we see felines frolicking in the sand? Raise A Paw is curious to know, Are Cats Good Beach Buddies?
