(Savings at end of Article) A lot of times when we get a dog or cat, we don’t think about their teeth until it’s too late.  Keeping your pet’s teeth clean is as important to your pet’s overall health as nutrition, proper exercise and for some pets, routine grooming.  Keep an eye on your pet’s teeth.  Look at them regularly to avoid dental disease.  To check your pet’s teeth, lift the lips all around the mouth, look at the front and back teeth as closely as possible.

October 11, 2023 What causes pet obesity? Obesity is mostly caused by an imbalance between the energy intake and usage — in other words, the dog/cat eats more calories than they can burn.

Magnesiuam, trace minerals and Vitamin D especially are deficient in pet foods. Vitamin D is......

I will often get phone calls or someone coming in to the store whose dog may not be feeling well and they want to know what to feed. First, if your dog is sick, don’t force him to eat. Let them fast for 12 to 24 hours. Then start small with easy to digest foods and feed smaller amounts more frequently.  But if your dog has an underlying medical condition like diabetes, always check with your veterinarian before changing his diet. And if your dog isn’t eating at all for more than 24 hours,......

What makes the brands on this list worth avoiding is simply that they fail to provide many -if any- of those nutrients your dog needs to stay healthy, instead using a variety of low-quality ingredients and various types of filler. At best, all these ingredients do is fill up your pup with empty calories devoid of any nutritional value. At worst, they could actually make them sick. Here are the main ingredients used in cheap, low-quality dog food that make them a poor choice for your pooch. Meat By-products and 4-D Meats......
