Many people do not realize that their dogs can actually get depressed. If you think about it, our dogs show their emotions much as we do. They get excited when they are happy and their whole body shows it just as ours does. They perk up, get hyper, wag their tails and sometimes you can even see them smile. They also show other emotions, such as being sad and they may show signs of depression or anxiety.

For the past decade, cat owners, animal rights activists, veterinarians and ethicists have debated, discussed and argued whether or not to declaw pet cats. Now that the dust has settled, all seem to agree that there is no scientific answer to the question: instead, it's a decision each individual cat owner must decide for themselves and their pets.

Proper care of your dog is key to creating a healthy life for them. It is important to spay or neuter your dog. Spaying involves the removal of the reproductive organs from the body of a female animal. This procedure is performed like a human surgery; while neutering is a procedure that involves the removal of the male animal's testes. With spaying, both the ovaries and uterus are removed. Ovariohysterectomy, often known as spaying, is recommended by the American Veterinary Medical Association as the effort goes a long way in reducing the overpopulation of dogs in the United States and elsewhere. The scientific name for neutering is called an orchiectomy.

For most, the rewards of canine companionship far outweigh the challenges. After all, dogs are part of the family and the responsibility of caring for them is generally considered a pleasure. Feeding is part of the caring process. But there doesn't appear to be consensus on how best to achieve the goal of optimum wellness where diet is concerned. When it comes to food and dogs, and what may be best for them, there exists a contentious argument concerning feeding them human food or table scraps. Many people have no qualms about doing so, and while there are general guidelines that should be followed, there appears to be no evidence as to why this habit shouldn't continue. There are various reasons that pet owners feed their dogs human food and chief among them is the belief that doing so is healthier and safer than providing processed foods. In reality this is somewhat true, given problems occurring in the manufacturing of dog food and pet food industry, as well as marketing practices that often are misleading, or even false. Yet, with a bit of effort on the part of the pet owner, a number of safe, healthy and nutritious foods may be provided. This article examines these issues, yet prefers to leave it up to the reader to decide what may be best for their canine loved one.
