As a pet sitter, I’m asked this question often.  Many people who are traveling will want me to visit their dog twice a day. They will tell me that their dog is able to “hold it” for 12 hours. I am sure this is the case. However, this does not mean it is a healthy practice.

It’s spring and as a professional dog walker in Austin, TX I’ve been seeing lots of bees busy pollinating the flowers. I’ve also noticed that dogs and cats are spending more time outside playing and investigating, so it is not uncommon for them to meet and be stung by bees.
