Dog health tips

A Healthy Diet

Can you imagine the toll it would take on your body if you ate fast food every meal, every day, for your entire life? With many dry dog food, that is exactly what’s happening to your pooch’s body.

Choosing a balanced meal for your four-legged buddy means incorporating whole foods and superfoods that help give your dog’s diet a healthy boost while reducing its risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and other health problems.

It’s also important to make sure you’re feeding your dog the appropriate number of calories. Your veterinarian is a great place to start. They will check your dog’s weight and calculate the right number of calories your four-legged best friend should be eating each day.

Another good place to get a rough guideline for how much they should be eating is located on the dog food bag itself. On the back (or side) of the bag is the feeding guideline which tells you how many cups of food your dog needs for their weight. Make sure you use their ideal weight and not their current weight if they are obese.

Back and Joint protection

Routinely jumping on and off the furniture, in and out of a car, stresses the joints and bones of any dog over time. A dog ramp can help to minimize the stress of these jumps placed on your pup’s joints. Months and years of this jumping up and down put enormous stress risking injuries and arthritis. A dog ramp will protect your dog’s joints by reducing the number of times he jumps each day.
