Is Your Dog's Halloween Costume Sexist??
Young girls may be discarding their princess wands for superhero capes this Halloween, but not so in the canine world.

Vet Bills Are Through The Roof
If you feel like your pet's vet bills are through the roof, you're not alone! It seems the animal health care system suffers from many of the same problems as human medical care, according to a new report from researchers at Stanford and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

You Can Now Be Buried With Your Pet

Dog seems to get along fine with SkunkSkunked
The Animal Radio "Dogfather," Joey Villani has tips on dealing with dogs (or cats) that have been sprayed by a skunk. He says the biggest myth is that tomato juice fixes that problem. We suspect the tomato juice industry is behind this fallacy. Imagine cleaning up a house wrecked by tomato juice and the skunk smell doesn't seem so bad. Joey also says "stay away from water, as that could make the problem worse." Dawn Dish Detergent seems to be the solution, again!
