Pet Insurance

Have you ever wished that you had Pet Insurance?
Many of us don't like to think what would happen if an emergency happened to our pets and there wasn't enough money in our bank account to cover the expenses.
There are so many Pet Insurance Companies that it can easily be confusing on which one to choose. Not only is it time consuming to look through each companies packages and compare them all, it is also mind boggling as to how many each offer!

Tylenol Toxicity

People should never “self-diagnose” or treat their pets with their own medications. People should never give their pets human medications!

As responsible pet owners, it is up to us to keep these medications out of the reach of our beloved fur friends. Forgetting and leaving them within reach of a curious puppy or adult will probably have a horrific outcome. Your pet could have a serious or even fatal reaction!


Acetaminophen is widely used in the common household. As a pain reliever, we use it for daily aches and pains, toothaches, headaches, arthritis, and more.

You can find a variety of over-the-counter brands. Toxic levels in our pets can be reached when a pet is unintentionally overmedicated or when he has gotten a hold of the medication and ingested it himself.

For some people the thought of their pet breaking into their medicine cabinet or chewing the prescription bottle, simply doesn’t occur.
