Mutt's Day Is July 31!


At MEDNET Direct we love dogs, and we are very excited to recognize mutts by celebrating Mutt's Day. This annual event was created to celebrate lovable, loyal, and one of a kind mutts. Mutts are often called halfbreeds, Heinz 57's, and more recently "designer" dogs (designed just for you).

Mutt's can be a wonderful addition to your family, and don't carry the expensive price tag that purebreds do. Mutts are usually more tame animals and don't have undesirable personality traits or attitudes that some purebred dogs do. It has also been said that mutts are often healthier than purebred dogs, because purebred dogs often have physical issues caused by inbreeding and selective breeding.

Your Mutt is just as unique as it's owner, often possessing the best physical and personality traits of it's parents. If you have been considering getting a new pet for your family, consider adopting one of the many one of a kind, mutts at your local animal shelter.

We'd love to see photos of your Mutts!

Automatic Waterers Keep Pets Hydrated


Even the most responsible pet owner can forget something once and a while, and this summer MEDNET Direct would like to remind everyone that pets are people too.

Pets need to be kept cool and hydrated in the summer heat, just as people do. If your pet is outside for long periods of time, make sure there is a shady area for them to rest and be sure to leave out plenty of water. Even if your pet is inside enjoying the A/C this summer, ample amounts of water should still be accessible to prevent dehydration.

The easiest way to keep your pet hydrated this summer is with an automatic waterer. Automatic waterers help keep water fresh by circulating it, and only releasing water as your pet drinks is. You'll no longer have a slimy dog bowl, or warm water by the end of the day. Automatic waterers can hold up to 1.5 gallons of water ensuring your pet's thirst is met all day.

This summer make sure you and your pet stay cool and hydrated by drinking lots of water.
