Our past newsletters are always located here on Pets.ca but our latest newsletter is only available by subscribing by free subscription in the yellow navbar on almost every Pets.ca page. If you have any comments or suggestions feel free to email them to newsletter ( A T ) pets (Do T) ca (please use the correct formatting) Now, onto some pet info.

Featured podcast (audio recording)

Holiday Season Hazards

newsletter-02_09-image1Even though it’s now February and our last podcast (explained below) discussed holiday hazards, the hazards are still not over. Many pet lovers still have their Christmas trees up and still have their toxic mistletoes lying around. Many holiday foods like chocolate may still be out in the open for curious pets to get their paws into. Chocolate and other holiday foods are toxic to both cats and dogs so always keep these foods stashed away from curious pets.

You can listen to these recordings easily by clicking the embedded player at the bottom of each particular post. Click here for the Holiday Hazards podcast.

A podcast is simply audio (similar to a pre-recorded radio program) that you can listen to on your computer or on an mp3 player like an ipod any time you like. At this time we have recorded 45 shows and many of them are interviews with specialists like the trainers from Tenderfoot Training and Dr. Lee our amazing podcasting veterinarian.

We realize that some people may still be confused about podcasting so if anyone has questions feel free to email me personally at marko (a T ) pets (D O T) ca – Please use the correct email formatting of course.

Pet Photography
Photography on Pets.ca – There are many places to see cute pet photography on Pets.ca including our Free cat webpages and Free dog webpages. We also have a special forum just for pet photography in our bulletin board, where each month we set up a challenge or theme. It’s all fun and it’s all free and here are just a few pictures from the December 2008 Challenge – Pets & toys and the January 2009 Photo Challenge – Puttin’ the Best Paw Forward. This month’s challenge is February 2009 – Best friends and pics from that challenge will go in next month’s newsletter. Thanks to Diamondsmum, dogcatharmony, spatx, sugarcatmom and Wendy.H. (December 2008 challenge – top set) and Frenchy, sugarcatmom, AmericanBullMom, jessi76, Mat&Murph and Ford Girl (January 2009 challenge – lower set) for the use of their pics in this newsletter. Please note: There were MANY pix that we did not use even though we wanted to. We only use pictures that members from our pet bulletin board have allowed us to use by posting in this list. Please add your name if you want us to consider your images (it’s fun and free).

Pet Videos

Pet videos are so cute and so much fun that we have decided to add pet videos to our bulletin board. We’ve only just started adding a few videos but the ones that we’ve added are likely to make you smile. One that is incredibly cute is Husky Dog Singing Gwen Stefani Anyone can see all the videos but in order to comment, you need to be a bulletin board member (it’s free).

Dog and Cat Paws

newsletter-02_09-image4Dogs and cats don’t have feet! What they have instead are paws. However even though paws look and are built differently than human feet, paws and feet are simply two different ways to do the same thing, walk. Walking is normally taken for granted, but it can be interesting to understand what makes our furry friends’ paws unique. You can read the full cat and dog paws pet tip here.

2 cute gifts for pets and pet lovers

New products for pet lovers have recently been added to our store including our new Chihuahua pet luggage tag. We have also added a new homeopathic product called Ginginat. It helps with pets that suffer from or are prone to gingivitis.
