Blog Profiles: Pet Blogs
Welcome to Blog Profiles! Each week, we select a topic and handful of blogs that do a great job contributing to the conversation. This week’s roundup recognizes a few of our favorite pet blogs. Do you have a blog that deserves recognition? Tweet our writers at @BeyondBylines.
Reading about pets makes me want to be a kid again — they make me feel young, carefree and happy. Pets are great for mental health because they can decrease anxiety and depression. They encourage you to engage more with your surrounding environment and they provide entertainment, unconditional love and companionship.
Every pet has a unique personality and set of behaviors. Cats have the amazing ability to spread a contagious chill vibe and make everyone feel totally relaxed. Dogs spread a contagious energetic and carefree vibe that’s hard to ignore.
These four pet blogs will help you better understand all types of beloved pets and how to improve their quality of life.
1. Pet Keen
The Pet Keen blog tackles difficult topics gracefully and humorously. Pet Keen is a team of pet experts, animal advocates and veterinary review board members who cover topics like pet safety, nutrition and behavior. The blog doesn’t beat around the bush, it gets straight to the facts that you need. Pet Keen provides solutions to the many pet problems that are bound to happen along the way.

2. Walkin’ Pets
As pets grow older, you have to adjust to their seniority. This is a great blog for help on how to care for your special needs and senior pets. It’s an inspiring blog that’s dedicated to providing educational tips on supporting your aging, disabled and injured friends. Walkin’ Pets encourages pet owners to stay optimistic about their pets living life to the fullest.
