How FAT is your pet?
Here's a human-pet comparison so you can get an idea of how important it is to keep your pet's weight under control. A 12# Uorkie is equal to a 218# woman; a 14# domestic short-hair cat is equal to a 237# man; a 90# Laborador Retriever is equal to a 186#, 5'4" woman or a 254#, 5'9" man; a 15# domestic short-hair cat is equal to a 218#, 5'4" woman or a 254# 5'9" man. WOW!
In doubt? Ask your vet! Here are some websites to get you started:
We added this page for odd snippits and tidbits we find that may be useful, interesting, or simply amusing and the information does not have to relate to animal issues. Why? Because we didn't know where else to put stuff like this and it's too good not to share. You may also find "duplicates" of websites already contained in other pages on our site. Listing them again here is just for your convenience--they aren't different.
This page will always be a work in progress, so, check back periodically. If you know of other reliable sources of good information, interesting sites, etc., we're all ears!

Their website has a lot of good information on it, so check it out. They have also signed The Humane Society of the United States' "Puppy-Friendly Pet Stores" pledge which assures you they don't support puppy mills and won't sell puppies in their store. They do, however, sponsor a local rescue group, SOAR, who adopts animals from their store. Thank you!
