Are you pulling my leg… or paw? We’ve all heard a few whoppers in our time, but here are the five biggest canine myths that continue to spread like wildfire. Even the most faithful and educated dog owners have probably been guilty of passing on a few of these fish tales
Do you or someone you love suffer from pet allergies? Did you know that it is generally not the hair of the pet that causes allergic reactions? It’s saliva, dead skin and dander, skin secretions or even traces of urine
