Nothing gets us out of bed faster than the sound of retching in the middle of the night!
But what about those times stuff just flies out of their mouths like in the movie "The Exorcist"? (You know the scene we're talking about: split pea soup!)
We know, it's not our favorite thing to talk about but it's important to know the difference between vomiting and regurgitating.
That Retching Sound

We're launching a new page on the website: Decoding a Pet Food Label
We're super excited to have Ann teach us how to decode a pet food label. These are not as straight forward as you may believe. Definitely a must read for those looking for just the right dog or cat food.
Ann Wortinger is an amazing veterinary technician with her VTS not only in small animal internal medicine, but also in emergency and critical care AND nutrition! Talk about a well rounded tech. We're honored to have her contribute to the website.

Giving chocolate to your loved ones on Valentine’s Day is a tradition that got its start in 1861, when the first heart shaped boxes were made by Cadbury. Since then, chocolate continues to be a popular choice for Valentine’s Day gifts.
Although a tasty treat for people, chocolate is a dangerous choice for our furry family members. More often than not it’s our dogs that get into things they aren’t supposed to, but cats can be guilty parties as well.
For animals, the signs of chocolate toxicity are dose dependent and will vary by the type of chocolate our pet consumes. (More on that later!)
Here are 14 reasons to keep the chocolate out of their reach this Valentine’s day (and the other 364 days in the year).
We just completed the Immune Mediated Neutropenia page! No more construction pug there!!
Immune Mediated Neutropenia, or IMN, is a rare condition where the body's immune system starts attacking the white blood cells normally used to fight off infections. Check out the page here to learn more.
We're excited to keep building the pages on our site to provide more information for you. Enjoy!
We're celebrating Responsible Pet Owners Month with each and every one of you. We know being a pet parent means having a sense of responsibility for your pet that not everyone feels the same about.
We mean it. Thank you for being the best owner to your fur babies. It's a tough job sometimes, but one we cherish each and every day.
Here's What It Takes
