It's a Wrap: Our Most Popular Pet Health Blog Posts of 2019

December 31, 2019


I am sure you have seen several companies with an "It's a Wrap" for the year. We have a lot to celebrate for our blog too. Our biggest good news is that you like us, you really like us! We saw that in our number of subscribers. We started the year with a little over 6,000 subscriber emails and now our numbers are over 14,000 emails! We won recognition for the second year in a row. And we just enjoyed writing about our adorable fur-babies. 

Here are the highlights we hope you saw. Did you miss anything? Check it out now!

The Top 5 blog posts of 2019

#5: We are all curious about what our dogs might be dreaming of when they are making all that noise while they sleep. We know you do too, because you made our fifth most read article "Do Dogs Dream? Sleep Questions Answered."

#4: We celebrated "Senior Dog Month" with a special blog post dedicated to why senior dogs are loved in the home. Clearly, many of you agreed. 

#3 Labrador Retrievers are the #1 dog breed in the world. Which is why it wasn't surprising there were a lot of Labrador Retriever readers out there who enjoyed "Labrador Retrievers: Arthritis Risk Spotlight."

#2: Another breed-specific blog post that barely edged out the Labrador Retriever group was the German Shepherd Dog lovers out there because they know “Why We Love GSDs.”

And our #1 post was actually an in-depth look at the phenomenon of arthritis in dogs. It showcased how it happens, symptoms to look for as well as what you can do to help. Be sure to check out our guide: "Arthritis in Dogs: A Pet Parent Guide"
