sam upStem Cell Procedures for dogs with arthritis.

Our chocolate lab Sam has horrible arthritis.  It afflicted him at a very young age and during the summer of 2014 it was so bad he could only walk 5-10 feet at time before he had to lay down and rest.  Our vet recommended stem cell injections in his joints and we went ahead with it…it was a huge success and Sam’s mobility returned beautifully.  Click here to read about our experience with Stem Cell Injections.

Fleas:  How we got rid of those nasty little suckers!

In all the years I have had dogs it was not until this year that we had our first encounter with fleas.  Fleas are such nasty little suckers that cause so much discomfort and carry disease.   I was horrified when I found them on our Pom but I did learn a lot of new things about how to get rid of them and how to better protect my pets in the future.  I wrote about how we handled getting fleas off our pets and out of our house in my “Confessions of an imperfect dog mom” series.  Click here for my post on FLEAS.
