Military Kids & Stress - Pets help

Pets Help with Military Stress!

This study examined 300 middle and high school students who had parents apart of active military. Of those whom had a currently deployed parent, most of them had a strong bond with a pet.
To be able to cope with stress, the relationship between the child and the pet has to be close. Not just having the pet indoors.
Due to this research - many military installations have subsidized horse stables, dog and cat kennels, and vet clinics. Military housing doesn't charge extra for allowing pets to stay in the houses on the base. However, they will not pay for them to be ship overseas.

Doggie Dos and Donts on Halloween

Halloween is Friday, October 31st, 2014. Are you ready?

1. Watch for diet treats. Make sure it does NOT contain Xylitol - which is an artificial sweetener.
2. Look out for chocolates. Especially dark - it can cause increased heart rates, shaking, seizures & even death.
3. Avoid grapes and raisins. They can cause kidney failure.
4. Beware of Macadamia nuts. They can cause hind-leg weakness & fleeting paralysis.

1. Don't allow your dog access to pennies. Pups will eat almost anything - these can cause kidney breakdown.
2. Don't leave harmful objects in your dog's reach.
3. Don't let "scary" visitors and mischievous people approach your dog.
4. Don't leave your pooch wearing his costume unsupervised. You don't want them to get tangled up & choke on it.
