Small pets can come equipped with impressive appetites, but they need to be given the right foods, if they're going to stick around and enjoy your company for long. Do you have one of the small pets on our list?
With summer days fast approaching comes the risk (though slight) that your dog or cat could become infested with a parasite known as cuterebra. While it usually infests rodents and members of the rabbit family, dogs and cats with outdoor privileges can also be infected. This parasite is the larval stage of one species of bot fly. It enters the animals' bodies through mucous membranes or open wounds.
