In today’s society, pets have become an integral part of the family structure. Because of the importance of pets, owners have become very conscientious about the health and quality of life of those pets. With the average person far outliving their pets, the want for health and longevity of the family pet is certainly understandable.

Happy Birthday Garfield!!!

If you are over 40 you remember the antics of Garfield the cat, his human Jon Arbuckle and Odie the dog.  Jim Davis created this iconic cat in 1978 and held the Guinness World Record for being the world’s most widely syndicated comic strip. Common themes in the strip include Garfield’s laziness, obsessive eating, coffee, and disdain of Mondays and diets. Cat lovers all over the world fell in love with the orange tabby with the bad attitude so much so, that June 19th is Garfield Day!

CanEVA pets has a supplement to assist in the mobility and joint health of your cat!  Your flesh and blood cat may not look as good as the animated Garfield at 48 years old but we want to make sure he still remains healthy and happy!  The glucosamine and hyaluronic acid found in our elk velvet antler has health benefits for your aging cat.  Explore the possibilities on our website under the Pets tab.

Take your pet to work week!!!

Take your pet to work week is June 17 – 21 and wouldn’t it be great if you could take our best friend to work with you? Workplace culture is changing on this issue, more people are taking their pets to work with them, and employers are seeing surprising results. A study conducted by Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) found that employees who brought their dog to work had low-stress levels compared to people who left their dog’s at home. Dogs in the office also meant more interaction between employees. Coworkers don’t usually interact with each other beforehand use the dog as a catalyst for communication.  The mental break of interacting with the dogs allows time  to de-stress before returning to their tasks at hand with a refreshed outlook and energy.  Luckily, working in the pet industry my dogs are constantly at my side and we encourage others to bring their dogs to the office.  If you are lucky enough to be the one making decisions at the office maybe this is the right time to experiment with allowing pets to come to the office.  If you need help presenting the case to your boss the benefits include: Decreasing stress, Increased communication between the team and departments, happier employees and improved culture.
