Supplements for dog care, the single most important
factor to your pet's longevity and
Supplements - Staying informed and making good choices
for your dog is what dog care is all about. You need
to know what canine diseases are out there and how to
prevent them from making your dog sick. It is best to
include in your dog care routine, establishing a relationship
with a veternarian who as the doctor of your dog, will
keep vaccinations current, perform regular check ups,
and advise you on how to best care for dog. And please
don't forget your pet's monthly dose of Heartguard,
especially if you live in an area prone to heartworm.
I was just at the vet the two dogs ahead of me tested
positive for heartworm because their owners skipped
a month - put a mark on your calendar!!
you've gotten the veterinary routine down, caring for
your dog is simply you continuing to make smart decisions
on behalf of your loyal friend! Start with his diet.
Like humans, avoid foods that are high in fat. Select
natural dog foods that contain human grade meats and
vegetables. (Please visit our Natural
Dog Food section for healthy dog foods). Besides
a healthy and nutritious diet your dog needs exercise
appropriate to his breed.
Some dog illnesses to discuss with your veterinarian:
Dog grooming is also an important part of proper dog
care. Check your dog regularly for lumps and other external
maladies. Bathing and brushing is a must if your dog
lives indoors and is also a way to control fleas. Fleas
are never welcome, so if you notice that your dog has
fleas, consider preventative measures. Advantage Flea
control allows you to irradicate fleas by feeding your
dog a pill once a month. Medication is also available
for the prevention of heartworm disease..
Training your dog is an essential part of dog care because
as you know it's much easier to live with an obedient
dog than a naughty one. Plus, you'll have the piece
of mind of knowing that your dog's not going to run
into the street the minute you open your front door.
