It appears this year will be one of the biggest for canine flu. Many Chicago pet events, including the 20th Annual Bark in the Park, have been cancelled because this is ground zero. Some dog parks have posted signs warning dog guardians that they are entering at their own risk if their dogs have not been vaccinated. According to reports, more than 1,300 dogs have been affected by the disease in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio. At least six of the dogs have died. AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association) spokesperson Dr. Douglas Aspros has the information you need to keep your pet safe and healthy.

Would you believe that there is a company that says the most important quality it looks for in new hires is a "love of felines."

If a worker doesn't have a pet, the Ferray Corp pays out a monthly "cat bonus" of about $42 to anyone who adopts a cat that needs a home.

Once the sensor recognizes that a person or animal has been left behind in the vehicle, it tracks the temperature. When the air inside the automobile nears a level that would be considered too hot or too cold, the gadget sends a text message to the driver.

Special Menus For PetsSecret Menus For Pooches
It turns out that many well-known restaurants have secret menus that cater to your pooch. You do need to make sure that your pet can handle some human-ish food before you order. For example, Starbucks will serve up a Puppuccinno. It's a small cup filled with whipped cream. Dairy Queen's Pup Cup is a little bit of vanilla soft serve, topped with a dog treat. If you're on the West Coast, there's In-N-Out where you can order a Pup Patty.
