2018: It's A Wrap

It’s that time of year when you reflect on all that was done over the past 12 months. Now as we all do some last minute chowing down, we thought we'd compile the highlights of the Parnell Paws Pet Health Blog for 2018. These articles were read and shared the most. Here they are in one handy article at your fingertips. 

We also created helpful and fun printable pet-related projects that we have included in this one post. Hint: if you are looking for a pet-themed calendar or coloring pages, you may want to keep reading to get your copy.

So here are the highlights. Did you miss anything? Check it out now!

The Top 5 blog posts of 2018

#5: Parnell Living Science readers have excellent manners, which is why our 5th most read blog was: “Beach & Dog Park Dos and Don'ts”

#4: Just like people, dogs and cats suffer from pain. Some of you are looking for alternative methods to help with pain, which is why so many read: Top 5 Holistic Treatments for Dogs.”

#3 Our readers are also more prepared if something should unexpectedly happen as many of you read: Are You Prepared for Pet Emergencies?

#2: We were glad to find out a lot of you are just like us, wondering… Why Do Dogs Eat Grass?

And the #1 most read blog post from 2018 is: What is Osteoarthritis in Dogs?

We weren’t surprised. After all, we are the expert on the subject!
