It’s National Poison Prevention Week – so it’s a great time to review the signs and symptoms of poisoning in dogs and cats. Pets are notoriously good at hiding pain, however, in the case of ingestion of a toxic substance, the signs can vary based on the particular poison.

National K-9 Veterans Day is celebrated each March 13th, in honor of the official birthday of the US Army K9 Corps, formed in 1942. Joseph White, a retired military working dog trainer, originated the idea for the day to honor service dogs who risked their lives for their trainers
Today K-9 forces are an active part of military, police, and rescue duties. Training for each service dog is tailored to meet the demands of the job so the animal and its handler can carry out his or her duties to the fullest. We salute the efforts of all K-9 Veterans and handlers!
