Senior Alert!!!! Hello there and my name is Kindle. I am an extremely sweet and gentle mature man of 13 years. I was adopted from Adopt An Angel 12 years ago and recently returned. I was in my home for 12 years and my mom had to move and could not take me because she has some serious health issues. If you can find it in your heart to let me be part of your family, I would be forever grateful! If you are interested in me please call Sherry at (910) 523-1254 or come see me at Petco every Sat from 11:30-4. I am well mannered, quiet, housebroken and just need a place to rest my head. If you can’t adopt me, would you mind sharing me? I am located in Wilmington, NC and thank you to the boarding facility who is letting me stay until I get adopted again.

URGENT‼️Warning to all Pet Owners‼️
Please tell every dog or cat owner you know. Even if you don't have a pet, please pass this to those who do.
Over the weekend, the doting owner of two young lab mixes purchased Cocoa Mulch from Target to use in their garden. The dogs loved the way it smelled and it was advertised to keep cats away from their garden. Their dog (Calypso) decided the mulch smelled good enough to eat and devoured a large helping. She vomited a few times which was typical when she eats something new but wasn't acting lethargic in any way. The next day, Mom woke up and took Calypso out for her morning walk. Halfway through the walk, she had a seizure and died instantly.
Although the mulch had NO warnings printed on the label, upon further investigation on the company's web site,
This product is HIGHLY toxic to dogs and cats.
Cocoa Mulch is manufactured by Hershey's, and they claim that "It is true that studies have shown that 50% of the dogs that eat Cocoa Mulch can suffer physical harm to a variety of degrees (depending on each individual dog). However, 98% of all dogs won't eat it."
*Snopes site gives the following information: .asp>
Cocoa Mulch, which is sold by Home Depot, Foreman's Garden Supply and other garden supply stores contains a lethal ingredient called 'Theobromine'. It is lethal to dogs and cats. It smells like chocolate and it really attracts dogs. They will ingest this stuff and die. Several deaths already occurred in the last 2-3 weeks.
Theobromine is in all chocolate, especially dark or baker's chocolate which is toxic to dogs. Cocoa bean shells contain potentially toxic quantities of theobromine, a xanthine compound similar in effects to caffeine and theophylline. A dog that ingested a lethal quantity of garden mulch made from cacao bean shells developed severe convulsions and died 17 hours later. Analysis of the stomach contents and the ingested cacao bean shells revealed the presence of lethal amounts of theobromine.


Happy Mother's Day to our Buckeye moms and mother figures! ❤️ Whether your children have two or four legs, you fill their lives with lots of love. 🥰

When Oscar, a 5-year-old Dachshund, developed partial paralysis from a herniated disc, he became the first dog to experience a new, non-surgical treatment option through a veterinary clinical trial at the Texas A&M Small Animal Teaching Hospital.

The trial, being led by Dr. Nick Jeffery, involves injecting an enzyme to dissolve the herniated disc instead of surgically removing it. This method is faster and less intense than the traditional surgery, and is also much more affordable for owners!

Oscar's story:

February is . Owning a pet is a privilege and it also comes with responsibilities. Here are the 6️⃣ pillars of responsible pet ownership.


"Can't take him to the beach for a walk because he bothers you and messes with the holiday... I'm not allowed to rent a house if I have a dog, and I can't take him.
However, I can take him to the rubble to find you after an earthquake, in the woods after you get lost in the mountains and you didn't have neither map nor gps; under snow because you made a detour not allowed off track; in the water because, despite the red flag, you have entered the sea and your life is in danger! And finally ....
He's just a dog, but he will find you.
And he will save you!!" Dogs are family ❤❤

It is so important to make sure your family dog has had the series of two Canine Influenza Bivalent vaccines and boosters annually to protect them. We have been offering these vaccines since 2006. Canine Influenza is airborne and there is no treatment available just vaccine protection.

Both H3N8 canine influenza, which emerged in the US in 2004, and H3N2, which emerged in 2015, can spread rapidly among dogs through coughing, sneezing and barking, and the AVMA says some dogs may not show clinical signs. Infection can progress to pneumonia, says veterinarian Cynda Crawford, a clinic...
