"Staff was absolutely wonderful with our puppy Bella...she is home now recovering from surgery. Highly Recommend this Vet Clinic for your animals." - C.A., Zanesville, OH
"I was actually referred to Animal Crackers in 2015 by another area vet that couldn't fit my puppy in. I have now been taking my dogs and cats to Animal Crackers for almost 2 years, and they always work with my schedule to ensure that my furry babies get the care they need in a timely manner.

A dog's tolerance for cold temperatures depends on many factors
No matter how hearty and fun-loving your dog is, as a pet parent you know there will come a time when it's just too cold, snowy, icy, wet or windy for your pup to comfortably exercise outdoors. When the weather outside is frightful and the fire inside delightful, it's important to find ways to help your dog stay active indoors where it's safe and warm.
PetMd recommends dogs get 30 minutes to two hours of physical activity every day, with the specific amount that's best for a dog depending on her age, size, breed and overall health. Pets who get plenty of exercise are happier, healthier and less likely to engage in destructive behaviors like chewing.

Keeping yourself, your children and your pets healthy is a top priority
(BPT) - Your household is busy, but keeping yourself, your children and your pets healthy is a top priority. Fortunately, wellness for people and pets can go hand in hand, allowing your entire family to feel their best and live life to the fullest.
“People who take a proactive approach to their physical, mental and social wellness are typically healthier and better prepared if any health issues arise,” says Satesh Bidaisee, Associate Professor and Deputy Chair of St. George’s University Department of Public Health and Preventive Medicine at St. George’s University. “Same goes with pets, too, which is why family wellness should be a holistic effort.”
Here are the top health recommendations from Dr. Bidaisee. Learn more at www.sgu.edu.
People: People should exercise for at least 150 minutes a week (30 minutes per day, five times a week) if doing moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes a week (25 minutes per day, three days a week) if performing vigorous aerobic activity, recommends the Department of Health and Human Services. Additionally, people should strive to do strength-training exercises at least twice a week.

The Tip List for Pets - Keeping Your Dog Fit and Healthy
(BPT) - For pet owners and their four-legged friends, interacting with other dogs provides great opportunities for exercise and socialization. Whether it's playing at the dog park, hiking through the woods, strolling around town or making new friends at doggy daycare, these activities can improve your dog's mental and physical well-being. They can also put your dog at risk for exposure to health threats.
An ounce of prevention...
"We all love getting out of the house with our furry friends but it's important to remember that serious danger lurks in the grass, community water bowl or, if you travel with your dog, in another city," advises Julia Szabo, pet lifestyle expert. "With the right knowledge, advice from your trusted veterinarian and some simple preventive measures, it's easy to keep your dog happy and healthy."
What pet owners need to know to protect their dogs
* Ensure your dog's vaccinations are up to date.
