What Do You Feed Your Dogs?

Its happening again! Dog food recalls and dog food lawsuits.

Most of us read and research our dog food labels in order to feed the best quality food for our precious pets. There are so many options of dog food: dry, wet, raw or dehydrated sometimes it's hard to choose. Each dog body and type is different and what might work best for one dog could cause problems for another (even in the same breed/family).

If you notice any of these signs its time to check with your vet and rule out all possible causes.

Gas and bloating
Not wanting to eat, nausea and/or eating grass
Excessive itching
Dull coat
Difficulty in maintaining a healthy weight (overweight/underweight)

Here is a website link to a list of dog food recalls and it also give reviews on different dog food brands

Valentines Day With Your Dog

Valentines Day with your Dog

So you don't have a date for Valentines Day? 

Spending time with your dog on Valentine's Day can be just as fun. 

Here are 5 reasons dogs can make great Valentine's Day Dates.

1. Unconditional Love.

Your dog doesn't judge you, is filled with gratitude and will always be in your heart. Dogs always live in the moment and those wet dog kisses are meant to show their love and devotion for you.

2. Yes! Dessert All To Yourself.

You don't have to share your dessert with your dog. Chocolate and Xylitol  (sugar-free sweetener) are toxic to dogs! Instead, you can buy a cookie treat at a dog bakery or make your dog a Valentines Day Dog treat.

3. Gift giving isn't expected.

You don't have to wonder if your dog is going to buy you a gift or stress about picking out the perfect present for your dog. Dogs give unconditional love and in return will be happy with belly rubs, ear scratches or doggie treats. You can always buy your dog a special Valentine Day dog toy, collar or apparel.

4. You don't have to Dress up for the holiday...low maintenance is key.

Your dog won't care what you are dressed in or how messy you look. It doesn't matter what you wear as long as you are comfortable enough for long walks, playing tug/fetch/ball or snuggles on the couch while watching your favorite movie. Being a dog owner you know your clothes will eventually being covered in dog hair and /or dog slobber so dress accordingly.
5. An attentive dog is appreciated.

Your dog will happily greet you when you come home with wags and kisses. Dogs can lift your spirits and make you feel less stressed. Also, when your dog follows you around its kind of cute isn't it? Your dog loves you unconditionally. How lucky is that?

Now tell us why your dog is your Valentine?
