Dog Sleeping Patterns and Behaviors

According to Casper Mattress Company, dogs have distinct sleeping patterns and behaviors. Maybe a Dog Bed can make the difference? Here is how they list out: Dreaming: Yes, dogs can dream too! While it’s difficult to uncover exactly what dogs dream about, we know the brain processes their events of the day during sleep. So we can assume they’re dreaming of what happened during the day — like a walk around the block or chasing a squirrel. Twitching: Just like humans, dogs may twitch in their sl...

Dogs Are Being Trained to Sniff Out Coronavirus Cases

  As reported by the Washington Post, it makes sense that if dogs have the ability to sniff the presence of certain diseases, they could be trained to sniff out the coronavirus. As some states move to reopen after weeks of shutdowns, infectious-disease experts say the prevention of future coronavirus outbreaks will depend on scaling up testing and identifying asymptomatic carriers. Now, eight Labrador retrievers — and their powerful noses — have been enlisted to help. The dogs are the...

Urban Resource Institute Outreach

We post this as a resource for pets and pet owners:   May is National Pet Month, and it is important to recognize the large intersection of domestic violence and animal abuse, as nearly half of domestic violence will not leave their pet behind. Children especially can be traumatized by leaving an animal behind because they have witnessed the threats or harm to their beloved pets. We’ve also seen a huge therapeutic value and positive health outcomes that pets have in healing including lower blood...

An Emotional Support Dog Is the Only Thing That Chills Out a Cheetah

A fascinating article from AtlasObscura: Like humans, the notoriously nervous cats can use a surrogate best friend. Cheetahs and dogs weren’t always friends. And at first glance, the feline-and-canine couple seems an odd pairing—one that turns heads for its cuteness, if not its unconventionality. But the practice of rearing young cheetahs with a canine companion has become a major means of relaxing the notoriously nervous cats at U.S. zoos from New York to San Diego. The relationship didn’t ...

Cat Ladder City

Imagine, if you will, what it’s like to be an average cat. You live with your owner on the fourth floor of an apartment building and, like so many of your fellow felines with exposure to the outside world, you have a fierce case of wanderlust. But until your owner gets home, you can do little more than sit on a sunlit windowsill, press your nose against the glass, and peer wantingly at the neighborhood below. You are beholden to someone who chooses to spend most of the day separated from you. ...

Tips for Curing Insomnia in Dogs

FOMO guest blogger Jennifer S offers her advice as to how to cure insomnia in dogs: If you think insomnia is solely a human issue, then you might be surprised to hear that it is not. Dogs (and even cats) can suffer from sleepless nights and insomnia is something that affects them equally as much as it does humans. Remarkably, many of the reasons that humans suffer from insomnia are the same reasons that cause dogs to be unable to sleep.  Insomnia typically manifests in dogs as they age or as a...
