Pet Me! Magazine – January/February 2017
While you’re looking through recipes to figure out what’s for dinner, you may want to consider what your pets are eating too. Local veterinarian Dr. Evelyn Vega offers a number of guidelines in an article about pet food. Just like humans, she says, food allergies and calories come into play when planning healthy nutrition for your dogs and cats.
Do your dogs ever get treated to bones? In this issue you’ll learn a little bit about the health problems associated with giving Fido the wrong size or type of bone to chew.
On the serious side of animal health and safety, we bring you news about an alarming practice, most common in Korean communities, both here and overseas: Dogs are being slaughtered for food. Nareenea Muradian of Tails to the Wind All Animal Rescue discusses, at length, the effort to free dogs who are being led away to become a food source for humans. There are operatives in Korea and in downtown L.A. who keep watch and rescue every canine they can from this shocking practice.
If you’ve owned a pet you’ve inevitably faced the sad experience of losing your dog to disease or old age. We spoke with Steve MacCorkle of Guardian Animal Aftercare, a San Fernando Valley company dedicated to making the death of your pet a meaningful experience. He has staff members helping with the grieving process, as well as offering you choices when it comes to cremation and burial.
As always, we bring you some of the many animals awaiting a new home. See their photos and read their bios to see if you can provide them with a forever family. Maybe this time next year we won’t need to find any more homes for orphaned pets. Let’s make 2017 the year we eradicate the mistreatment and abandonment of all animals.
Happy New Year from the Pet Me! family to yours!

My love of animals began at an early age, and in fact, I don’t remember a time that I didn’t have pets. Decades later I’m actively involved in adoption with our local shelter in an ongoing process to change the community perception of our shelter system. With a desire to encourage animal rescue, adoption, and humane education I decided to embark on a dream and launch Pet Me! Magazine. My dream is that through education each person reading will be encouraged to become involved and make a difference in some way whether great or small. Our mission is to offer insight and education to pet parents and be a voice for animals. Our goal is to strengthen awareness in the pet community; to inspire people to become more involved and more aware. We aspire through education to help pet lovers gain insight and understanding of their companion pets.
