Tips to Stay Safe in the Sun: From Sunscreen to Sunglasses

Sun safety is always in season! It’s important to protect your skin from sun damage throughout the year, no matter the weather. Why? Sun exposure can cause sunburn, skin aging (such as skin spots, wrinkles, or “leathery skin”), eye damage, and skin cancer, the most common of all cancers.
Here are some Tips to Stay Safe in the Sun: From Sunscreen to Sunglasses!

Paws Off Xylitol; It's Dangerous for Dogs

Dog Safety Tips!
Over the past several years, the Center for Veterinary Medicine at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has received several reports—many of which pertained to chewing gum—of dogs being poisoned by xylitol, according to Martine Hartogensis, a veterinarian at the FDA. The most recent report was related to "skinny" (sugar-free) ice cream.

And you may have heard or read news stories about dogs that have died or become very ill after eating products containing xylitol, which also may be known as birch sugar or wood sugar.
