When you see service dogs working, let them work. Just one of the tips in this helpful primer.

    5 Things Everyone Should Know About Service Dogs
    Many kids learn it's important not to touch service dogs. But many families don't teach kids anything else about these animals or the many ways they can help humans. We talked to people who train animals to assist others, as well as people who rely on them every day, about the lack of information and awareness involving service dogs.

The cable channel CNBC recently asked an important question: Are you prepared for a pet emergency? Many are not. Check out the article to make sure you are well-prepared.

    Most Americans could not afford a pet emergency: Study
    A few days after Lacey Patterson adopted Chloe, a two-month old kitten, from a local shelter near her home in Clearwater, Florida, the kitten started showing signs of a cold. At first, the symptoms were mild: sneezing, a runny nose and watery eyes.

Did you know dogs can get cataract surgery just like humans? This adorable 14-year-old poodle named Suzie could only detect light and shadows because of her cataracts. But now Suzie can see well again, thanks to retinal testing and cataract surgery with artificial lens implantation performed by Dr. Clara Williams, a board-certified veterinary ophthalmologist at our Waltham, MA hospital. Her owner says Suzie is acting five years younger. And overall, this shows that even older pets can benefit from this type of surgery. Suzie is a bit more sensitive to sunlight now, but as you can see there is a solution to that problem. The hat and glasses help limit the sunlight -- plus she looks so stylish!

Most dogs make us want to say "awwwww." But these dogs who received the Medal of Courage make us want to stand up and salute. Thanks to the heroes, those with two legs and those with four.

    These four military dogs just received the nation's highest honor
    Four veterans were honored with Medal of Courage awards on Capitol Hill on May 22. They didn't give any speeches, but not just because they were humble - the four vets are retired military working dogs. The American Humane Lois Pope K-9 Medal of Courage is the highest honor for military dogs that displayed extraordinary valor and service to their country.
