Poison Around Our Pets!
Karen MacGregor, one of our Transport Coordinators and also a foster for AADR shared some important information we wanted to share with you. With spring upon us (mostly...), we will start planting our flowers and tending our gardens and there could be dangers lurking there. Karen has a neighbor that lost some lost some puppies when they encountered her peonies years ago.
Karen asked us to share a resource with owners so that you can do a planning check and you may want to avoid potentially dangerous plants. Especially if your pets are out in your planting areas.
As Karen said, "Just to name a couple of things - azaleas, rhododendrons and Lillies of the valley are on the list. Of course I have Lillies of the valley in my backyard so I guess I’ll be getting rid of them! Crocuses are another - I have a couple that some birds dropped off years ago and they won’t grow any place that I plant them but they’re leaving too."

|Dog Food Advisor
||Interested in finding out about the food you are purchasing for your pet? Check this link. As with most decisions about your pet health and care, be sure to discuss diet with your veterinarian professional. Research is not doubting or mistrusting your vet, it is being an informed pet owner and care provider.
Research has shown that the consumption of highly processed foods and low quality ingredients in dog food can lead to a variety of irreversible consequences, including obesity, arthritis, diabetes, and cancer.This is largely due to the fact that over 70% of dog owners have no idea what to look for when reading dog food labels. Dog nutrition and health is undoubtedly difficult to understand and it doesn’t help that dog food labels are designed for maximum marketing appeal which can be confusing to many pet owners. In order to clear up this confusion, Reviews.com teamed up with leading industry experts and dedicated hundreds of hours researching canine nutrition and the importance of quality ingredients. The end result is an in-depth analysis, backed by scientific research and expert knowledge, that clearly explains the importance of canine nutrition and details exactly what pet owners should and shouldn’t be feeding their dogs. The goal is to help all dog owners, including the members of your organization, make more informed decisions about their pet's nutrition when considering what to feed their dogs.
