Jane Lynch Hosted Bark Business Benefit For K9s For Warriors

Filed under: GleeJane LynchCharityDogRescueDr. Patrick Mahaney

We LOVE Jane Lynch's passion for helping out the greater good!

This time, Animalfair.com hosted a benefit for the Bark Business Benefit at the Omni Hotel, which helps K9s For Warriors - a fantastic organization that pairs rescued Service Dogs with veteran armed service members who suffer from PTSD.

Thank goodness for Dr. Patrick Mahaney, our favorite vet, getting Jane to come to the event!!

This is just one of the many times Jane has worked with K9s For Warriors, and it looks like her Gleeful celeb-status has helped raise at least $145,000 so far, which is enough to pair up 15 service members with doggies!!

UnbeWOOFable! Wanna lend a paw hand?? Then click HERE to donate!!

Check out some more pics (below) from the incredible event!

Prevent Pet Cancer With Dr. Patrick Mahaney

Filed under: HealthCancerPetsTipsDr. Patrick Mahaney

Dr. Patrick Mahaney

There are few things worse in this world than cancer.

It's a horrible disease that ruins lives… but it can be prevented!!

Right now, it's Pet Cancer Awareness Month and so what better way to spread awareness than by sharing some of Dr. Patrick Mahaney's tips for preventing cancer in your pet??

Dr. Mahaney's Top Five Holistic Pet Cancer Prevention Tips:

I would love to call this article my top five holistic tips to cure pet cancer, but I feel that title might be somewhat misleading. Through my experiences working with my oncology colleagues at the Veterinary Cancer Group (VCG), I’m aware that some cancers can be cured but the majority of them are clinically managed (put into remission, etc.) and don’t necessarily completely resolve.

Cancer is a disease disease that we veterinarians are diagnosing more frequently in pets. According to the Morris Animal Foundation “1 in 2 dogs will develop cancer and 1 in 4 dogs will die of the disease”.

As there is no guarantee for a cure, we should strive to prevent our pets from developing cancer in the first place. Yet, as cancer is a complicated disease of the immune system involving excessive growth of cells having altered DNA, the origins of the disease never have singular nor finite cause. Therefore, there is no absolute guarantee that our best efforts to prevent cancer from happening will guarantee a desired outcome (i.e. having a pet never develop cancer).

May is Pet Cancer Awareness Month, so I want to emphasize the concept that making healthy lifestyle choices can provide a better state of overall wellness and potentially reduce the likelihood that cancer may occur. Although there is no failproof cancer preventative tactic, here are my top five tips to help keep your pet cancer free.

Don't Give Your Doggie The Flu With Dr. Patrick Mahaney

Filed under: SickPetsDogDr. Patrick Mahaney

Dr. Patrick Mahaney

We're still in flu season in the U.S. and just because a dog can't tell you their nose is stuffy, doesn't mean they can't get sick.

Did you know that pets can actually get sick from us?? Even from the flu!

Good thing Dr. Patrick Mahaney is here with some wonderful tricks for keeping your pet happy and healthy:

Do you realize human influenza virus can transmit to pets? Are you taking precautions to prevent transmission of zoonotic disease (those capable of interspecies transmission).

Considering that people can be infected regardless of vaccination status and that not everyone will be immunized, it’s important that we recognize the potential for humans to pass a microorganism like the influenza virus to our pets. Yes, your dog or cat could contract the flu from you.
