Making sure you provide a well balanced diet for your herp is just as important as eating enough fruits and veggies yourself. With all the commercial foods it’s easy to get distracted from what a well balanced diet actually looks like. To start with the obvious, it’s going to look different for different herps, but should consist of one or both of these things: plant and live food. Commercial foods are balanced, generally healthy, and readily available, but fresh food plays such an important role in your pets mental and physical well being that it can’t be put aside!
Itchy dog skin is a common problem pet parents deal with. It’s so frustrating to watch your dog scratch and scratch and feel like you’re not helping them. Max is one of these. So in an effort to help him I created this easy oil recipe that has done wonders for his skin and his itchies. It’s all natural and only uses three ingredients.
Two things birds love best, entertainment and treats. This toy combines both for an easy, 4 step, DIY bird treat toy.

On Saturday Max had to go for the vet. Blood work, shots and all. Since the whole family was already out we took Max to the market afterward. It was our first time at the market with him, because of some behavior issues, but he did a really great job.

It’s important to stay hydrated. Two and a half water bottles should do it Mom. (We’d been there for 30 minutes)

Ready to go home. It was hot.
There’s a relatively new term flying around and I LOVE it! The term is “pet parent”; not owner, or master (man I hate that one!), but parent. Many of you have probably heard it before, but I still run across pet lovers who haven’t, and I’m on a mission to change that. So what is a “pet parent” anyway. Well, to me, it’s a person who is responsible for raising a well mannered, socially adapted, emotionally confidant, and physically healthy animal of another species. I mean, that’s what parents do for their human children right? So isn’t the term fitting?

This week is a very special week in our house. It’s both Max’s birthday and his adoption anniversary. We actually adopted him just a few days after his birthday, so last year I called adoption his present. This year we got to celebrate properly though, with Pupcakes and Presents and all.
The thing I love about animals the most, is that it really doesn’t take much to impress them. Time, love, and treats, and you have a friend for life. Whatever lives in your house: cat, dog, bird, reptile; give your pet an awesome weekend and foster that unconditional friendship.
