Bane and Vaders Doggie Drive Thru on Animal RadioDoggie Drive-Thru
Amanda Brown opened a drive-thru fast food restaurant for dogs ONLY. Your dog can get the popular Bow Wow Bowl with their choice of protein, vegetables or grains in an edible bowl. Bane and Vader's opened their flagship store in Easton Pennsylvania. Amanda has plans to franchise this idea, which came to her when she saw research showing that humans often ordered food for their dogs when going through a fast food drive-thru.

Microchips and Misconceptions
While microchips are a very important part of pet identification, they will not help you find your missing pet unless it's picked up and scanned by a veterinarian or shelter. That's why Dr. Debbie recommends a visible tag and perhaps a GPS collar. Only a GPS collar will allow you to track your pet's location using your smart device or computer.

Shop Cats
Tamar Arslanian and Shop Cats of New York on Animal RadioDo you know of a business that has a token cat? You'll certainly appreciate the "Shop Cats" in Tamar Arslanian's new book. She features, in both picture and the written word, the most notable shop cats in New York stores. Take for instance, the wine store cat that has his own chiropractor, or the cat that is a mascot at a dog boutique, or the occult shop cat that totes a magic wand in her mouth.

Following months of negotiations with Florida state officials, Mary Thorn has been given a permit that will allow her to keep her pet alligator, Rambo, who she says is fully trained and not a "normal" gator. Mary dresses Rambo in human clothing to protect his sensitive skin.

Stealing Your Pet's Pain Killers

First Time in 150 Years There Will Be No Pet in the Whitehouse
Barring a new addition to the Trump household between now and Jan. 20, Donald Trump will become the first president in 150 years who does not have a pet. Aside from the benefits they've bestowed on first families, presidential pets have for decades served to soften a president's image. Martin Van Buren had tiger cubs, Thomas Jefferson and Theodore Roosevelt had bears and Calvin Coolidge had a pygmy hippopotamus.

That's why the dynamic duo is especially overjoyed that they finally landed a job at the Lowe's in Abilene, Texas. Up until Clay's wife gave him the idea to apply at Lowe's, the veteran had a hard time finding a business that would be okay with his Charlotte following him around in a work zone.

Most soaps and detergents contain chemicals called ionic and anionic surfactants. When a small amount it is ingested, it is possible for pets to become sick with gastrointestinal upset (drooling, vomiting, and diarrhea) and even come down with serious respiratory issues.

Lori Brooks will help you recognize signs of stress in your pet, so you can remove them from dangerous situations and help them relax.

Rising Pet Health Care Costs
Pet owners may shell out as much, or more, money for their pet's health care as they do for their own health care, and it's mostly because of pricey new technologies and more advanced treatment options.
