January 22nd is National Answer Your Cat’s Question Day (who knew?), so it seemed like a good time to check in with the clowder (that’s what you call a group of cats) and see what was burning in their brain cells.
Problem. Have you ever tried to get a consensus from a batch of cats? The only thing they can agree on is there should be more food in the bowl and whatever you put in the bowl should have more gravy. It was time to pick a spokes cat. Continue…
Hello, Silvi here! As the official Cat of Guthrie Pet Hospital, I see a lot of stuff. I see puppy dogs and kitty cats and delivery people and clients and a couple of weird guys that come to steal our rugs every few weeks. There are lots of new faces every day. I don’t know if you have noticed, but we have had some new faces working at the clinic lately as well. We have Felicia, my apprentice clinic cat, who is still trying to get the lay of the land. She is doing a pretty good job for the most part, but she is still kind of a newb. I told her if she licked the windows it would make her look smart…she totally did it! I think she will fit in fine once she quits trying to climb Dr. Anna’s trees. Continue…
In May of 2017, Guthrie Pet Hospital developed an app for the clinic. You can download the app on your Apple or Windows phone directly from the app store by searching for Guthrie vet.

Throughout centuries, dogs have become a huge part of human culture. Because of the huge role dogs play in our lives, advertisers and marketing executives put a lot of effort into exploiting our relationship with dogs. When you’re faced with ads selling dog supplies, it’s important to keep a few simple facts in mind. Continue…

Friday the 13th has long been considered a day of bad luck and ominous fortune. Walking under a ladder, breaking a mirror, having a black cat cross your path- these are all considered unlucky things, but especially so on Friday the 13th. This got me wondering about other animal superstitions involving animals, especially cats, and a little research did not disappoint. Continue…
In today’s blog, I wanted to talk about an obedience training cue that often gets overlooked: the release cue. The release cue is very important since it marks the end of a behavior (i.e., “sit,” “stay,” etc.). This gives the dog a clear cue to know that she can break position. It reduces confusion and prevents unnecessary mistakes. Continue…

June 24th is Cat World Domination Day. I’m pretty sure this was something started by cats to convince us that they have not, in fact, already taken over the planet. This is just their way of making us say, “OH, look at the cute kitty. Isn’t it sweet when they think they are big and bossy” when in fact they have been manipulating us for years? Let’s face it; cats have been in charge since the moment they first wandered into some quasi-caveman’s camp and stood next to the fire, demanding leftovers. Continue…
