As we approach the season of vacation getaways, pet parents start thinking about what to do with the cat, dog, bird, fish, etc., while they’re out of town.

A few months ago, I had to have hip surgery. This was my second hip surgery and I’ll be honest, coming home was the best part. Even though I had rules to follow, like being on crate rest, no rough playing and new medications, my mom had prepared to make my recovery process as comfortable as possible with a...
