As spring blooms, your dogs and cats can suffer skin allergies

Atopy, also referred to as “atopic dermatitis,” is a seasonal malady that’s a common canine and feline skin condition. It happens when allergens in the environment lead to an inflammation of the skin. “Allergic dermatitis” is what we call the skin’s excessive reaction to these allergens.

All homebuyers have their must-have lists when looking for their perfect home, such as an open floor plan or a spacious master bathroom. But pet owners also need to consider their creatures' needs when looking for a house.

Cat rescued from river after being thrown off an overpass

An injured cat was rescued by the Wichita Fire Department on February 8 after it was believed to have been thrown from an overpass into a river partially frozen over from the cold weather. Animal rescue organisation Beauties and Beasts, Inc shared a Facebook Live from the scene as firefighters made their way towards the cat using an inflatable boat. The cat can be heard meowing from its spot on a patch of ice, and when the firefighters bring him back to a waiting team member of Beauties and Beasts, Inc, he told her that the cat’s back legs were broken. The cat was taken to an emergency clinic to receive care.
