Pets Get Slim Website
Is your pet battling the bulge? Do you find it hard to resist those puppy dog eyes appealing for treats? Well you're not alone; half of Britain's dogs and cats are now overweight! Which is why the RSPCA has joined forces with TV vet Joe Inglis to set up to help you to help your pet lose weight.

Feline Advisory Bureau
The Feline Advisory Bureau (fab) is a charity dedicated to promoting the health and welfare of cats through improved feline knowledge, to help us all care better for our cats. The FAB website is an excellent resource for feline information and they have some of the best "fact sheets" we have seen.

Animal Drug Information

Inherited Disorders and Genetics

Genetic Welfare Problems
In order to help towards improvements in breed-related welfare problems in companion animals, UFAW has started this website to provide information for prospective pet owners, breeders and others. The idea is that if you are thinking of buying a dog, cat, rabbit or any other other companion animal of a particular strain or breed, you will be able to find information on what inherited welfare problems may occur, and what checks you may need to make with breeders or suppliers in order to avoid buying affected or carrier animals and, in so doing, unintentionally perpetuating the problem.

Dog Training Textbook

Dogs will be dogs. They are guaranteed to pee, poop, chew, dig, bark and bite. So if you invite a dog to live in your home, it is up to you to teach them where, when and how.

Raising a puppy can be a wonderfully enjoyable, or horribly frustrating experience, depending on what you know. We believe that proper dog training information is so important that it should be freely available to all, with the hope that dogs (and their humans) will be happier and healthier because of it. This is why we have created the:

The Dog Star Daily Online Digital Dog Training Textbook

It is our hope that many owners will read this information before they get their puppy, so that they will be fully prepared when they bring their pup home. If you are thinking about getting a puppy, we suggest starting at the beginning with Chapter One: BEFORE You Get Your Puppy.However, if you already have a puppy or dog, you can go immediately to the age-relevant section for your pet. If you not only have a dog, but also have a specific behavior problem, you can go immediately to Chapter Six: Dog Behavior Problems for help

This is a hobby site run by a small group of poultry keeping enthusiasts. Here you will find over 500 articles and lots of useful resources on keeping chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, guinea fowl and other poultry together with a poultry forum to ask questions.
