Most mushrooms are not toxic, but your backyard may contain some that are – especially during the rainy seasons. This tragic story should serve as a warning to all pet owners to regularly inspect their yards for anything that could harm their pets.

Although this blog is primarily dedicated to pet health insurance, because I am a veterinarian who believes that preventing problems is better than treating them, I’ll sometimes pass along pet health tips to help you keep your pet healthy. For more tips, check out the “pet health tips” category in the right sidebar of this blog.

Preventing problems not only keeps your pet healthy and can literally save your pet’s life, but also helps you keep more of your hard earned money in your pocket.
