4 Pet Myths We Need to Stop Believing

It's fairly obvious that cats don't have nine lives and that you can teach an old dog new tricks (fingers crossed!). However, when it comes to other myths about our furry friends, pet owners have a harder time separating fact from fiction.

Dr. Royal is the author of The Royal Treatment: A Natural Approach to Wildly Healthy Pets. For more information about Dr. Royal, visit The Royal Treatment Veterinary Center.
