Lessons I’ve Learned From Owning and Showing Goats

HeartyPost written by Brittany Couch, Intern

I never really thought I would own and show goats like I do now.

A lot of individuals that have goats and show them start when they’re young or even in their early teen years.

Me? I didn’t begin until my Junior year of highschool and I’ve loved it ever since. My best friend, Mysti-Ane’, was the one who got me into it.

Most people who get into showing animals do it because their parents did it or they already live on a farm with livestock. That wasn’t the case for me. My parents, when I told them I wanted to show goats, were a bit shocked, but now they love it too.

3 Part Flea Control

mike gallagherPost written by Mike Gallagher, Sales Coordinator

Our pets provide us with so much enjoyment. No matter how good or bad your day has gone, when you come home your dogs and cats are very happy to see you. Their moods never change…always very positive.

The same thing can’t always be said for their owners.

Owning a pet has responsibilities that accompany the ownership. Taking care of their basic needs goes along with the ownership.

Flea control is a big part of pet health that the owner needs to address. Fleas need to be prevented or serious health issues come into play with the pet. We could be talking flea bite dermatitis on the skin of the pet. Continue reading “3 Part Flea Control”

Pond-er This: What You Need to Know About Owning and Managing a Pond

FullSizeRender (4)By Joe Schneider (Owner of Sea 7) and Mike Gallagher (Durvet Aquatic Management Specialist)

Owning or managing a pond or lake can be really fun or really frustrating.

Most private pond and lake owners’ experiences probably fall somewhere in between. There can be problems associated with every aspect of a pond, even deciding what to call it…is it a “pond” or a “lake”?

Let’s clarify this first. There is no absolute definition between the two. The one used most often is the “5-acre rule”: Ponds are less than 5 acres while lakes are more than 5 acres. Since most ponds across the country are less than an acre, we will use the term “pond” for the sake of this blog post.

While ALL ponds are NOT created equal, there are some very common issues that can affect them. Continue reading “Pond-er This: What You Need to Know About Owning and Managing a Pond”
