Pet Me! Magazine – October/November/December 2017

Natural disasters occur all over the world, and here in Southern California we’re threatened by fires year after year.

While they’re terrifying for people, animals are suffering too. In this issue, we looked at some of the experiences horse owners had during last year’s Sand Fire, plus we have checklists you can refer to when handling pets during the next emergency.

For animals that are battling cancer or other pain symptoms, some veterinarians are recommending cannabis products, specifically CBD oil, for patients. We talked to the founder of VetCBD about his products and the changing world of medicinal marijuana.

Every year, Bow-Wows & Meows brings together animal lovers to find forever homes for numerous pets. I’m sure this year is no different! And if you haven’t found a furry friend to take home, be sure to check our pages for adoptables in this issue.

Our next issue will come off the press in January, so in the meantime, have a terrific holiday season. We hope your four-legged family members have a great time too!

My love of animals began at an early age, and in fact, I don’t remember a time that I didn’t have pets. Decades later I’m actively involved in adoption with our local shelter in an ongoing process to change the community perception of our shelter system. With a desire to encourage animal rescue, adoption, and humane education I decided to embark on a dream and launch Pet Me! Magazine. My dream is that through education each person reading will be encouraged to become involved and make a difference in some way whether great or small. Our mission is to offer insight and education to pet parents and be a voice for animals. Our goal is to strengthen awareness in the pet community; to inspire people to become more involved and more aware. We aspire through education to help pet lovers gain insight and understanding of their companion pets.
