Raven was my parents’ dog. She was my furry, four-legged older sister, who, like many older sisters, did not listen to me. She was full of energy, hence her nickname “Raven Lunatic.” When I was about 10, my parents decided it was time for my sister and me to have a dog of our own. We chose a lab mix from a local rescue, and named her Eagle.
One year later, our once lively Raven tragically developed cancer. My parents did everything that they could to help their first “daughter”, and spent a fortune on treatments. Sadly, Raven did not make it. However, good did come from the experience.We learned a lot about health care and the need for pet health insurance for the furry members of our family. My mom signed Eagle up for pet insurance from Pets Best, which ended up being a huge blessing.

Is a Maltese the Right Dog Breed for You?
By Dr. Tracy McFarland, a veterinarian and writer for Pets Best, a pet insurance agency for dogs and cats.
Have you ever wondered why a cat you see on the street or in a vacant lot or field has one ear that is neatly squared off at the top? It can be the right or left ear, and it is done at the time of neuter or spay, primarily with cats that are not suitable for adoption and will be released into a “cat colony” area instead. The ear tip surgery allows concerned cat rescuers to recognize that this cat has already been sterilized and released, and does not need further intervention.
