Pet Life Today
Pet ownership offers a multitude of benefits for physical and emotional health. After a long and difficult day, nothing can compare to the unconditional love you receive from a sweet pet.
In fact, research has shown that pets can decrease both blood pressure and anxiety, and perhaps even boost immunity. Plus, they can help you find dates with a fellow pet lover. While you may feel like just another number in the big, wide world, to your pet – you ARE their world.
Having a pet is tons of fun, but it’s also a lot of work. From regular exercise to a healthy diet, regular vet visits, training, and more, there are a lot of things to consider – and always something new to learn throughout your journey as a pet parent. Pet lovers turn to blogs for advice on health concerns, entertainment (adorable cat GIFs, anyone?), ideas for fun activities to enjoy with your pet, tips on traveling with pets, and just about any concern you might have as a pet parent.
We’ve compiled a list of 54 of the best pet blogs, from blogs with adorable images of furry friends to blogs offering educational information on training, pet health, and other topics.
