Wednesday Pet Roundup- 5-8-13

Hi and welcome to Wednesday Pet Roundup. Kelly reminds you to take time to smell the tulips!

* Sago palm is among many plants poisonous to dogs. Some garden centers are putting up signs alerting consumers to the dangers. I like this approach by one Home Depot representative, "...It's always best to assume that any plant not specifically sold as food should not be eaten by humans or pets."

* I've never been into the wacky weed myself, but ABC reports that some veterinarians claim medicinal marijuana may be of benefit to dogs suffering from cancer.

* We've got winners!
1. FitDog Friday Slimdoggy Scoop- Sue Kottwitz
2. FitDog Friday Dieting with my Dog bookmark- Paws and Pedals
3. FitDog Friday The Dog Diet book and Hill's Sweet Potato and pumpkin treats- Cascadian Nomads
4. Flea and Tick comb giveaway on Pawsitively Pets newsletter- Danielle Murgia, Gina Daw
5. And now, the deliciously coveted prize, the Pawsitively Homemade cookies goes to Felicia King, Heather Sp, and Daneille E. Congratulations, your dogs are going to love these treats.

    Sago Palm is SOOOOOOOO Dangerous... Don't know WHY it continues to be sold... WITH NO WARNING LABEL.

  2. Great roundup. We never knew about that palm. I only pee pee on it

  3. I don't even know if I'd know what one looks like. Maybe it doesn't grow up here in NY.

  4. I'd like to find out more? I'd care to find out some additional information.

  6. Congrats to all the lucky winners!!! I would imagine the pot has the same effect on pups as humans and increases their appetite and makes them a little mellow. Speaking as someone who loved their Mom dearly and watched her suffer from cancer, it was worth trying for her and helped a little. Although, it was a little shocking when my sister's mother-in-law was helping us box up Mom's place after she passed and she stumbled upon our efforts to help Mom :)

  7. Very energetic article, I loved that a lot. Will there be a part 2?
