Personally, Dr Jane Bicks recommend that cats be bathed two to four times each year. The life cycle of hair ends with shedding, and as the amount of hair... Read more →


The splendor of summer is right around the bend. We are approaching the season when children, freed from studies, populate the neighborhood, friends and families hold cook-outs, and we find ourselves preoccupied with the health our pet’s coats.

Ticks have a life cycle of approximately three months. If left untreated, tick-borne diseases can cause serious health complications and sometimes even be fatal, as in the... Read more →


Both cats and dogs are susceptible to infection, even if they are indoors or concrete potty trained. Fleas are difficult to control because of their reproductive abilities and resilience. One female flea can lay over 2000 eggs in her life span, which means infestation can occur rapidly, and the eggs that are laid can survive for months in the environment, simply awaiting an appropriate host.
