Ask Atticus

Welcome to our blog, Ask Atticus! For those of you that have never visited our brick and mortar, Atticus is our beloved Siberian Husky who has been helping us with customers since the wee age of 12 weeks. He is now a seasoned adult and more than willing to share his experiences and help with canine and feline problems (in spite of the cats tangling with him over the years)! Please feel free to ask questions and we will also invite guets to provide content on a variety of pet related issues.

Addressing the FDA report on Foods and Cardiac Disease

Addressing the FDA report on Foods and Cardiac Disease

Still worried? Add fresh meat or fish to raise the taurine levels. You don't have to go all raw but adding fresh, frozen or freeze-dried meat to your dog's diet will boost the taurine levels and help prevent heart disease. Both whole grain and grain-free foods are fine as long as the first five ingredients contain actual meat and not too many high-glycemic starches. And don’t forget fish, which is high in taurine and also in methionine and cystine, from which dogs make taurine (unless they have a special problem and for some reason cannot do this).

From New Parents to Aging in Place - a Community Resource

From New Parents to Aging in Place - a Community Resource

Well into our 13th year of serving our extended Community as a local, independent business here in the District, we have been thinking about many of our customers and the life stages that they go through with friends, families and neighbors. In fact, how we engage and care for our community at large is what builds the fabric of our society, both here at home and across America. As a small, local business we have watched our customers start new families with their companion animals, watched their children grow, and many of our customers are now moving into retirement, with the issues (even in good health) of starting to address aging in place. While we have multi-generations as customers, I think all of us go through periods where we may need help with our companions no matter the age, and so I thought we might discuss some resources that would be helpful from new parents to our seniors who are passionate about their pets and want to keep them healthy and happy through all of these life transitions.

Coping With Cushing's Disease

Cushing's disease is a hyperactive adrenal gland disease that occurs when the adrenal glands pump out excessive amounts of hormones called glucorticoids. Glucorticoids are the body's natural source of cortisone. When excessive amounts are in the blood stream, they end up pushing the body's metabolism to the point where it becomes physically uncomfortable for the animal.
