Your pet can be featured! Get involved in the Halloween haunt!

   October featured pets: Send in a photo of your pet wearing a Halloween costume to be featured 

Looking for spooky pets in Halloween costumes to be featured


It's the most wonderful time of the year! I'm not talking about Christmas- it's spooky season! Halloween is my ABSOLUTE favourite holiday! I love scaring people- and being scared. I love everything about it- the candy, the horror movies, the scary decor, the witches spells, the city draped in my favourite colour- orange!

Happy National Veterinary Technician Week: 10 best things about being a vet tech

Ask an RVT: 10 things I love the most about being a registered veterinary technician  

Happy National Veterinary Technician Week: 10 best things about being a vet tech by Nicole Cunningham, RVT


My years of experience working in the veterinary medicine industry taught me many things. One thing I learned on my first day is that the job of a veterinary technician is difficult. Veterinary technicians assist in surgery, dentistry, treat emergencies, learn how to care for multiple species, assist the doctor, be a nurse, provide emotional support for the client, and be an advocate for the patient. They work hard without breaks- often for less pay than you'd expect. It's stressful. It's fast-paced. It's emotionally draining. It's blood, sweat, and tears. REAL tears. And it is incredibly rewarding.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Canadian's give thanks: Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving, especially those who are isolated this year

Canadian's give thanks: Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving, especially those of you who are isolated this year

I hope you all had a safe and Happy Thanksgiving! The pandemic has made it difficult for families to get together this weekend. I know how isolating it can be living alone and not being able to visit family. Virtual visits and phone calls just aren't the same. I missed the hugs, the homecooked meal, and the playtime with my nephew. To all of you who are alone this holiday season, I want to send you my love. It's tough but we will get through this. Hold your pets and cherish the moments that you have with the people you love. Find ways to visit from afar. But most of all, stay safe.

Learn about Reiki healing from a Usui Holy Fire Reiki Master practitioner

Guest blog: My Reiki journey; a discovery of healing energies and the power within 

Learn about Reiki healing from a Usui Holy Fire Reiki Master practitioner
Guest blog by Robyn Thomas. So excited to welcome her
to the Paws For Reaction extended family!  


Many are unaware of Reiki healing and its vast healing possibilities. The Usui Holy Fire Reiki system incorporates Reiki symbols, attunement placements, distance healing methods, and hand positions for working with oneself and others. As a practitioner, I connect with and direct universal life-force energy that surrounds every living thing, to balance the life-force energy within. This involves channeling source energy, setting intentions, connecting with Reiki symbols, Mother Earth, and myself to balance and ground mind, body, spirit.

I had my dog blessed by the Catholic church

Piqued my curiosity: I had my dog blessed by a Catholic priest 

Piqued my curiosity: I had my dog blessed by a Catholic priest

I was walking my dog by a Catholic church in my neighbourhood when a nice lady commented on how beautiful Hazel is. I know I'm a little biased, but I have to agree- she's a looker. We were making small talk about my dog when she mentioned that the church is offering blessings to pets. She encouraged me to bring Hazel back the following weekend to have her blessed.
