*Lilies are HIGHLY toxic to cats - chewing on just a single leaf, plant, or stem can cause acute kidney failure!
*The timing of the LAST puppy/kitten vaccine is the most important, not the number of puppy/kitten vaccines.
*Dog and cats (and other creatures, I suppose) can get DIABETES just like humans. (People are constantly surprised, unless they have had DM themselves.)
*Dogs and cats have baby teeth just like us and should lose these between 4-6 months as their adult teeth come in. You may never see the baby teeth fall out because they usually swallow them!
*"Doggy breath" is NOT normal - dental disease creates this bad odor and regular preventative care can keep it at bay.
*Parvo is not fatal if treated in early stages and it is entirely preventable with vaccinations.
*FEAR is the number ONE cause of aggression in dogs.
*The most important time to socialize a dog is between 6 and 14 weeks of age.

*Female spayed cats may spray to urine mark their territory, it's normal behavior.
*Heartworm larva exit the biting mosquito's mouth onto the skin and go down the hole just made by the mosquito bite.
*Dogs don't have collarbones, allowing them a longer stride and reach.
*Cats have free-floating collarbones, allowing them to squeeze through small openings.
*Cats do not meow/talk (hissing/screaming doesn't count) to other cats, only to people.
