4 Reasons the Cost of Pet Insurance is Worth It

Dog on vet table

Murphy’s Law states that anything that can go wrong will go wrong. Pet owners know this better than anyone when their dog steps in that one little thing in the yard you forgot to pick up, then run inside and jump up on the couch. Luckily for me, I was able to remove the stain and the couch was allowed to stay in the living room (instead of being sent to the basement forever).

For this reason, it’s important that all pet owners consider buying pet insurance to protect their loved ones from some of life’s most unfortunate accidents... Read More »

Life Expectancy of Dogs: How Long Will My Dog Live?

Puppies drinking water

Larger animals tend to live longer than smaller ones...most of the time. Think about it. A human lives longer than a cat, which lives longer than a rat, which lives longer than a fly.

This is because of increased health risks for the person who weighs 300 pounds. When it comes to dogs though, how can you compare a Great Dane to a Chihuahua? Their anatomic builds are completely different and their lifespans reflect this... Read More »
