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.

    Most Americans could not afford a pet emergency: Study

    A Polish TV commentator had a surprise visitor jump into his interview last week - his cat leapt right onto his shoulders, curled itself around his head and stayed there. Historian and political scientist Jerzy Targlaski was discussing Poland's Supreme Court on the Dutch news program Nieuwsuur when his cat hopped into the spotlight.

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!
