Bruno Blog — Rehoming a Dog, Week 3.5

Bruno Blog – Week 3.5 (written by Quinn) When I first met him in the Savannah at Pet Camp he was kind of nervous, and after 5-10 minutes I was giving him a big belly rub. After that, whenever I would see him, he would get pretty excited. The second time I met him, 6 […]

Racism in NYC — Banned Dog Breeds

This may not be shocking news to those of you who follow the news. But we’re not talking run of the mill racism; we’re talking K9 racism in the form of banned dog breeds. And not just discrimination that is based on the color of your skin, your nationality, religion or anything else that is protected […]

Avoiding Eye Contact With Dogs

Every once in a while a pet parent will ask us to avoid eye contact with their dogs lest they become aggressive.  Well, it turns out that rather than discussing their dog, these pet parents might just be discussing our elected officials.

Bruno Week 2

About ten days ago Bruno looked something like this undergoing a Femoral Head and Neck Ostectomy at San Francisco Animal Care and Control (this is Bruno’s actual surgeon but this isn’t Bruno). After just 10 days of rehabilitation Bruno is a relaxed, fun loving pup! How relaxed you ask? Well how would you feel about doing […]

I was reading about a veterinarian in Texas who is in trouble for practicing veterinary medicine by giving advice on a website to “patients” that he has never actually seen. The Texas Veterinary Practice Act requires that a veterinarian see the animal before providing veterinary care. The veterinarian claims that this requirement violates his First […]

Tufts Veterinary School Would Love Our Pet Lodging Services!

I’m an avid reader of trade magazines. Every month I read a host of materials from various veterinary schools, veterinary magazines, grooming magazines (you could call that my personal fashion fix), and of course magazines for the pet lodging industry.  I rarely think of these articles as an advertisement for Pet Camp – but that’s […]

San Francisco Housing Crisis Impacts Pet-Friendly Housing, Too

It’s hard to have a conversation with anyone in San Francisco these days without two things coming up: tech and the cost of housing. For most San Franciscans it comes down to there being too much tech (you know the Google buses and $5.00 toast) and not enough housing (which of course drives up the […]

Dog Food Facts and Fiction

We see all kinds of dog food at Pet Camp, from what is perceived as ultra high end to supermarket brands to raw diet to homemade. The mix of what we see changes and what is “in” can be as fickle as fashion. Gone are the days of simply asking if the protein source is […]

Pay More for Pet Food to Provide Low Cost Spay and Neuter?

We all know that spay and neuter programs are essential to keeping the dog and cat population under control.  In San Francisco we are fortunate to have a host of low cost spay and neuter programs; in fact for many years Pet Camp was proud to host the Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA’s free mobile spay/neuter clinic […]
