pet insurance

Just wondering if most people get a pet insurance. My dog had some issue with her teeth which costed me $1500 and she has luxating patella(wobbly knee cap) which is not severe for now but might need a surgery(will cost $2k). As those two are pre-existing condition, insurance company won't cover thos...

I tend to get cold fingers easily and when walking the dog when it's below -10C, my finger tips get painfully numb after walking 30-60 mins. Usually it's my hand that is holding the leash that is worse (and wearing thick mitts is a pain to hold the leash), so I figured I'd try to make my big glove t...

An interesting question as some studies say over 1/3 of cats (depending on the local population) don't have the receptors for catnip (mimics a sexual pheromone apparently) and thus don't react to catnip. My B-i-L's "Siamese" reacted very ecstatically ...


I had two cats before, but never a dog. I really love shaggy dogs like poodles and doodles because you can pet them, they seem lovable.
