Chocolate Toxicity
Chocolate may be America’s favorite flavor. We like chocolate candy, ice cream, chocolate drinks, chocolate cakes, just about anything with that flavor. We may want to share our favorite treat with an eager pet but it is best to think twice and reach for the dog biscuits instead.

Feline Fallacies
The cat has been worshipped as a god, vilified as a demon and is treasured as a companion today. Despite all that change, the cat is not much altered in form or temperament. Cats are pretty much the same as when they first chose to associate with our kind. Even though cats have shared our lives for countless generations, there's still a lot we don't know about them, and a lot we think we know about them that's wrong. Here are a few enduring myths and the facts to counter them.

Fit Pets
Like many a human in mid- to late-middle age, my retriever Heather finds it easy to put on weight. Despite an active lifestyle -- at age 9, she's still good for two hours of nonstop hiking and swimming -- she tends to put on a pound or two during the winter, when her activity levels drop along with my own. Heather is not alone. Even as physicians report with alarm that our weight averages are increasing, veterinarians are noticing the same with our pets. Dogs and cats are getting larger for the same reason people are: too much food and not enough exercise.

Pet Ownership Can Teach Children Life Lessons
Making a child happy is a wonderful thing. But if you're considering getting a pet for your child, or if you've already done so, you have think beyond the joy that comes on the day the pet comes home. You must also consider the long-term lessons a pet can teach, and your role in helping bring those lessons home.

Kitten? Think Cat
Every year as spring approaches, shelters and rescue groups face a daunting challenge: Find homes for the cats before the kittens arrive. That's because once kitten season starts, even the sweetest, handsomest and most well-mannered cats may run out of time before anyone recognizes them for the wonderful companions they are and adopt them.

VetzInsight: A Different Place to Learn
The same folks who provide Veterinary Partner also offer a blog called VetzInsight. Rather than explain what occurs in a disease process and how to treat it - which was Veterinary Partner offers - our goal is not only to inform on larger issues but to tap into the numerous emotions at play within the human-animal bond. We're here to learn and have fun. If you're interested in learning more about a broader look at veterinary medicine, the veterinarians, the clients, and the patients, VetzInsight is a great learning experience.
