Fresh running water does have great appeal, even to pets.  Take cats,
for example: it's the rare one who will even drink from a bowl of
"stagnant" water.  And when you think about it, cats have it right...
who wants to drink out of a bowl or a glass of water that's been
sitting there for half a day or so?  Perhaps that's why the latest
trend in pet drinking is not the 'pet bowl,' it's the 'pet fountain,'
where water flows constantly, or on demand.

Voluntary euthanasia is legal in Japan and surveys have shown that the
majority of Japanese people support it, especially in terminal cases. 
But the focus and originality of assistive treatments and therapy
available for aged cats and dogs in Japan suggest that Japanese pet
owners do not readily accept euthanasia for their furry family members.

The State of Pet Health 2011 Report has just been released by Banfield Pet Hospitals,
compiled from medical data on 2.1 million dogs and 450,000 cats. The
report lists the trends in dog and cat health, or more appropriate,
disease, observed within the last five years. Should we be surprised
that among other trends, obesity and diabetes is rising in our precious
pets?

No, you have NOT seen everything yet!  Not, at least until you see these
spinning exercise wheels for your dogs and cats.  Not treadmills...
they are so yesterday!  Wheels, like way-oversized hamster wheels.

Have you ever dreamed of your pet becoming the next Pup-Casso or
Kitty-Casso?  Me either.  But if your imagination can muster up the
vision of your pets walking on plastic wrap-covered paint globs, then
these  Art-Casso kits are all you need.

What are your cat's favorite indoor
activities?  Scratching and sniffing, by any chance?  Uh-huh.  The new
Scratch 'n Sniff may not be the first cat product to combine scratching
with sniffing catnip, but it's probably the most purr-fectly designed one yet...

There are lots of puzzles on the market for dogs, but indoor cats need
their noggins switched on too. And indoor cats have a tendency to gain
weight, which can lead to digestive problems and less mobility.
Fortunately, Aikiou didn't just design an interactive feeder for dogs,
but a special feeder for cats, which slows down your pet's eating and
digestion, as well as providing some fun!

Yesterday, I wrote about ways you can delay or prevent cognitive dysfunction, or dementia, in your dogs and cats, but what if telltale signs are already showing up?
