It’s likely you may have heard about the thousands of benefits of probiotics, also known as “Direct Fed Microbials” for pets. If you haven’t, trust me - you will.

While at Global Pet Expo this year, we were excited to talk with Humarian about their line of probiotics for pets.

If you’ve been thinking about trying probiotics with your dog or cat, you would be absolutely right in doing so, but it’s important to understand the reasoning behind choosing a probiotic and the importance of buying from a reputable company.

There are millions of health supplements available for pets. In fact, supplements are a $600 million industry right now and shows no sign of slowing.

This is both good and bad -- good because we have lots of options, bad because almost none of them are regulated and only a handful of manufacturers spend the time required educating the customer on how to use them.  

Probionics are important and as a pet owner who has helped a lot of animals in rescue, I say if you’re going to choose only one supplement to give your pets, you should seriously consider probiotics.

Macy's Thanksgiving Parade is ramping up security. This year, in addition to officers with "assault weapons and portable radiation detectors walking among the crowd" and "sharpshooters on rooftops", we will see a special group of scent dogs trained to detect explosives in large crowds. 

The NYPD will be using "Vapor Wake Dogs" to track "thermal plumes left behind in a person's wake," Paul Hammond, President of Vapor Wake Training Program VWK9 LLC, told Rolling Stone

This speciality training helps dogs become adept at avoiding the millions of distractions of large crowds and instead use their incredible sense of smell to hone in on explosive particles and firearm residue from terrorists who move through the crowd, allowing police and special agents to stop apprehend a suspect before a devastating event.

Evacuation with Pets

The United States and others areas of the world have been faced with disasters everywhere. Massive wild fires are decimating Montana, Washington, Oregon, and California; the Southwest is recovering from deadly flooding due to Hurricane Harvey, and hurricane Irma is fast approaching Florida and the east coast with Jose and Katta are following on its heels. For that reason, we want to address a few questions we’ve gotten about evacuating with pets.

There have been far too many cases of animals being turned away from shelter during these disasters. This leaves the owners to abandon or board their pets to enter shelter, or venture back into the storm with their pets.
