I am a true animal lover. I have 2 dogs, 16 cats, 1 pot bellied pig, 2 geese, 8 ducks, 1 dove, 1 quail and 2 cockatiels. So welcome to my zoo. Here you will find lots of articles about animals and their health.
A very important thing to realize is that a clean house and/or shelter for your animals is essential to the life and health of your animals and yourself. Having just one pet or having 33 animals like myself can be quite a task to take care of and keep up a clean environment for them. Regularly cleaning pens, litter boxes, cages, or any area you may keep your animals, will keep your animals happy and healthy. Not to mention that it will keep you from calling commercial cleaning companies to clean up a huge mess at your house!
