I can’t believe it’s already been about three weeks since Wynston broke his foot. We’re already on cast number four – only about four or five more to go. Our veterinarian believes that Wynston’s foot should be healing properly, but we did run into an issue when Wyn’s leg became irritated from his cast this week.
It’s been two weeks since Wynston broke his foot in El Paso, TX. Since then, we got back into town, had his foot casted and have adjusted to life with three fully-capable Chihuahua legs. The experience hasn’t been nearly as treacherous as I would have guessed, but it’s still proven to be quite the life experience.
Today Wynston had a new cast put on, as he needs to get it reapplied every week for the next five weeks or so. As he’s rocking the new hot pink look, here’s an update on how’s he’s doing!
You know when you’re about to go on an adventure with dog and worst case scenarios pop into your head? Like, all those “what ifs” and horror stories that you hear from other pet parents. But, I mean, what are the odds that those things would happen to you while you’re on vacation? Well, get freaking prepared for it.
The other day I created a list of things I needed to travel six hours with Wynston. On that list were names of several nearby emergency vets and vaccination records. I honestly never thought I’d need them, but I gotta be prepared and practice what I preach, right? And let me tell you, it’s a good freaking thing I was prepared because…

While raw food diets are all the rage, kibble still offers an endless amount of health benefits for dogs. Although feeding raw food to dogs is popular, it can be dangerous if not made properly. I personally don’t have the time, energy or expertise to even attempt to feed my dogs raw, so I want to leave it to the pros. I also prefer feeding my dogs kibble because it has all of the necessary vitamins and nutrients to ensure my dogs are eating a balanced diet. But what if I want the best of both worlds? Wellness® CORE® is now offering RawRev™, a mixture of your dog’s favorite grain-free kibble with 100% raw meat pieces! Wellness CORE RawRev has everything a pet parent could want in a savory meal for our well-deserving pups.
Everyone knows someone who has been affected by the dreaded “C” word. Cancer destroys families of loved ones all too often, and although it seems like we get closer to a cure every day, cancer is still breaking hearts on an all-too-regular basis. When I speak of the heartbreak, it isn’t specific to people. Pets suffer from cancer too, but technology is now allowing veterinarians to fight more types of cancer head on. Earlier this year I had the pleasure of touring the PetCure Oncology center in Arizona. Did you know that there’s an entire program dedicated to treating cancer in your dogs and cats? PetCure Oncology partners with specialty veterinary practices across the country to offer stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), and although it’s a fairly new concept for pets, it’s proven effective in saving lives.
