Don’t forget that February is National Pet Dental Health Month! Pets, like people can have their teeth affect more than their smile. The bacteria that congregate around the decay in your pets’ teeth can signal more serious health problems may be in store. Bacteria can travel much further than the gums; it can affect the heart, liver and more.
The best news about National Pet Dental Health Month is that your vet may be offering specials on teeth cleanings and more.
Give your vet a call and see if he or she is offering a little something special for your furry family members this February!

As sad as it is, not all pets have a wonderful home with a window that looks out on the yard from the sunny spot on your person’s desk, like I do.
Yes, there are lots and lots of pets that need a home, and lots of people who work hard to try and provide homes for them. One of those groups is the Homeless Pets Foundation in Marietta. The Homeless Pets Foundation was founded in 1998 by Dr. Michael Good, an Atlanta veterinarian who saw a need for help and homes for the homeless pets in the area. Since 2002, the Homeless Pets Foundation has found homes for over 10,000 homeless pets here in North Georgia.
You can help and have fun to boot; on February 8th, at Marlow’s Tavern in Kennesaw, there will be a fundraiser –accent on ‘fun’– at the Second Annual ‘I Love My Pet’ Fundraiser for the Homeless Pets Foundation.
The fundraiser will be held from 7 pm to 11 pm and will offer “great food, drink specials, door prizes and more.” The Zaib Kahn Band will perform and their will be a special photo contest, so bring a picture of your pet!
Marlow’s Tavern is located at 745 Chastain Road in Kennesaw. For more information, visit them online at http://www.marlowstavern.com/.

Christmas is coming toward us so fast! And do you know what that means????
It means that they bring a big tree into the living room for me to climb…and it has these little shiny things dangling all over it that I can bat into the floor…and these…what?? What do you mean that isn’t what Christmas is about? Oh, you mean I get to eat turkey and…what? But…it isn’t about that stocking full of catnip treats??
