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.

Pets just have a way of blending into our lives, don't they?

    TV commentator's cat climbs onto his head during interview
    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!

Does your dog hate things that boom, blast and burst? Here's some good advice on keeping your furry friends calm.

    Ever Wonder Why Your Dog Is Scared Of Fireworks?
    There are plenty of things dogs love about the summer - but July 4th fireworks aren't at the top of their lists. Independence Day, while packed with food and fun, can be one of the most dangerous times for pet owners.

Wednesday might be the busiest day of the year in our ERs. What makes July 4 dangerous for pets? Heat, food and things that go BOOM!

    July 4 is busiest day at pet hospitals, so keep your dogs and cats safe
    July 4 is a day for fireworks, for celebrating freedom and - more than any other time - for taking pets to the emergency room. In fact, the number of ER patients at BluePearl Veterinary Partners hospitals on July 4 is 55 percent higher than an average day.
