What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?

“What do you want to be when you grow up?” is a question children often get asked.  You might know exactly what you want to be, but not everyone is always so sure.  I would encourage you to explore the things you like and enjoy to see if there is a profession that helps develop those interests.  For example, if you love dogs, you can volunteer at a shelter, visit the vet’s office or assist a dog groomer.  These visits will give you hands-on experiences that could help lead you in the best career path.  Explore the options in your community and visit with people who have the job you think might be just right for  you.

Allergies for All

All the blooming trees and plants are affecting many people’s allergies this time of year.  It is important to remember that these allergies also affect our pets.  The signs are almost the same for pets as for humans: watering eyes, sneezing, scratching and skin irritation.  If you notice any of these signs, there are treatment options.  I would suggest speaking with your vet for the best treatment or prevention of these symptoms.  Something as simple as a bath can often reduce your pet’s allergy problems.
