Pet First Aid Month is in April

What is Pet First Aid? 
Pet First Aid is the immediate care given to a pet that has been injured or suddenly taken ill.
This includes home care and veterinary care if necessary.

It has been estimated that up to 60% of animal hospital visits are emergency in nature.

Knowing the skills of Pet First Aid can mean the difference between life and death, temporary and permanent disability, expensive vet bills and reasonable home care and rapid recovery or long recuperation for your pet.

Statistics show that preventable accidents are the leading cause of death among pre-senior dogs.

The more you know about your pet’s health the better chance you have of keeping a simple problem from becoming a big problem.

What other things need to be included in your pet’s care other than learning pet first aid?
· Human/animal bond

· Knowing your pet’s health

· Exercise

· Proper nutrition

· Supplementation

Knowing what “Normal” is for your pet will allow you to a…

CONFUSED ABOUT PET INSURANCE? ME TOO!

How many pet owners have thought, "Wow! I could really use some help with these Veterinary Bills!" Most pet owners know that unlike human medical insurance, pet insurance hasn't caught on as much as we'd like it to. It would be great if every pet owner could afford pet insurance so they could cover expensive veterinary charges, annual health examinations, vaccines, heartworm testing and so forth. But which company would you choose if you were interested in Pet Insurance? Who has the best program to offer you? There are so many to choose from today!

To be honest, I think this is why most people don't follow through with exploring the idea of buying Pet Insurance for their pet/s. They just don't know where to start. Not only that but when Pet Insurance first caught the ears and eyes of the pet owners, not much was covered and it was expensive to say the least. But times change and so do companies. Pet Insurance companies have risen to the occasion. After all, t…

Visual Harmony Photography-Featured Pet Professional

"Photographing animals is my passion" ~ Jill Flynn


Visual Harmony Photography

I provide on-location Pet Photo Sessions in the Phoenix Metro Area. All photo sessions are done in the client’s home or an agreed upon location. Animals feel safe and relaxed in their own home or a familiar environment. My goal is to connect with your pet and capture their spirit and that "special look" with beautiful light. Each photo session is unique and different, just like each pet. I like to be physically close to animals when I photograph them. I love to talk and interact with them during a photo session. My philosophy is to create a safe and stress free environment and capture those special moments of your pets being themselves. I love capturing quiet moments. I use both natural light and studio lights. It's all about finding and creating beautiful light. Professional lighting is included in all photo sessions.
