As if the ominous name didn't clue you in, death caps are very dangerous. This species is responsible for the majority — 95 percent! — of fatal mushroom poisoning of people and pets. Now that Summer is in full bloom and you're taking advantage of hikes in the woods and trips to the park with your dog, there is no better time to learn about this deadly fungus and how to avoid it.
Not commonly found throughout the US, the fungi have been reported in areas as wide-reaching as upstate NY and New Jersey over to southern Oregon and the San Francisco Bay Area.
If you're taking a walk with your pooch, know how to recognize and avoid Amanita phalloides (the death cap's scientific name). They grow year round and thrive in moist environments commonly found on the roots of live trees. Although the above picture is one example, exact identification is unreliable because their appearance can vary. Translation: don't eat, or let pets eat, any wild growing mushrooms.
Learn how this affects your pets and how it should be treated when you break.

The dog days of Summer are here, which means warmer weather, long walks, and afternoon siestas. And this adorable snap of an Airedale Terrier pup says it all.

"Grass lovin' pup."
We'd love to stop and smell the flowers with this little Airedale Terrier!

You've been so careful to slather on the sun protection this Summer, but don't forget about your dog. Just like humans, dogs are susceptible to sunburn and even skin cancer. If you're going to spend all day on the beach together, take these precautions and look out for some symptoms that might signal sunburn on your dog.
Protection: Luckily, there are sunscreens for dogs that make preventing sunburn easy. Try an all-natural lotion like GNC Pets ($12) to protect your doggie's skin before your next sunny outing.
Symptoms: Some symptoms that show your dog might be sunburned include redness of the nose, ears, or tummy, dry, cracked, or curling ears, and constant scratching and whimpering. If you witness any of these signs, call your vet immediately.
Home Remedies: If your dog's sunburn is minor and hospitalization is not required, whip up some home treatments to soothe your dog's discomfort. Aloe vera and witch hazel are both great for sunburn relief; just gently rub or dab onto the affected areas. Vitamin E is great for preventing scarring, and herbal moisturizers like this SheaPet option ($16) are great for rehydrating your dog's skin.
