Handle Wild Things With Care

Many critters that look abandoned or hurt don’t actually need our help—but if we do see a bird, squirrel, turtle or other wild animal in distress, here’s a guide on what to do.

Cool Chow

With a little time and ingenuity, we can ease our furry friends through the heat with homemade icy preparations of fruit, veggies and poultry.

Hot Days Are Hard on Pets

Pets such as bulldogs and rabbits are particularly vulnerable to heatstroke, but we can cut the risks by taking preventive measures and knowing what to do if a pet is overcome.

Stressed-Out Pets

Life as a beloved American pet might seem ideal, but 70 million of our cats and dogs are medicated for anxiety and depression.

Horse Rescue

Elderly, ill and neglected horses need space and loving hands to ensure their survival and happiness.

Well-Mannered Cats

If a house cat pounces on guests, throws up or pees in places other than the litter box, don’t despair—practical solutions can turn a cat into a paragon of virtue.

Bird-Watching for Beginners

Starting with a bird feeder, binoculars and app, we can thrill to the medley of birds in our backyards and wildlife refuges.

The Right Vet for Your Pet

Holistic medicine is just as nourishing and effective for our pets as it is for humans.

Eat, Bark and Be Merry

Sure, it’s tempting to slip food scraps to our pets from our groaning holiday tables, but it’s much healthier to cook them up special treats.

Choosing the Perfect Pet

Will it be a mischievous shelter puppy or adult feline? When picking a pet to share our love with, it’s wise to consider its size, temperament, needs and costs.
