5 Signs Your Dog Needs A Joint Supplement NOW!

Just like humans, the majority of a dog’s immune system resides in his gut. The gut is the largest immune organ in the body and contains approximately 70% of all immune cells. So keeping your dog’s digestive system running optimally is essential to making sure that he stays healthy, active, and lives a full and healthy life.

One way to potentially improve your dog’s digestive health is to offer him a daily probiotic supplement. There have been extensive studies on the benefits of probiotics in humans, however, veterinary research is just starting to really dive into how supplementing your pup with a variety of good bacteria can aid in keeping him healthy.

I have been on a hunt for the best CBD products for our animals. I have researched a ton of companies and have found my favorite one. The name is Treatibles, and they offer a variety of products. They are the first company to offer Cannabinoid products on the market for pets. Not only is it an amazing product, but they are an amazing company. They help rescues and give back.

What is the best cat food on the market?

 After assessing more than 2,000 formulas, we’re happy to recommend 18 of the best cat food brands, both wet and dry.

The best cat food will keep your cat healthy and happy, and will come in a flavor he or she loves. Any high-quality food needs to feature protein front-and-center, and won’t include any low-quality fillers, artificial additives, or ingredients that are toxic to cats over time. To find the most high-quality options available, we scoured the formulas of over 2,400 dry and wet cat foods on the market, read through research and regulations, and talked to veterinarians about what cats need to thrive.

In the end, we identified a shortlist of the best cat food brands and lines that you can count on. Now it’s up to you to figure out what flavors sit well with your cat’s preferences and to find the food that fits your budget. If you’re having trouble deciding between a wet or dry food diet, or you want more information about our top picks, check out our comparison tables and guide to cat food types, below.

Health Insurance for Dogs in 2018

 

Knowing exactly what you need in an insurance plan for your dog can reduce insurance-claim letdown.

As we gathered information for this update, we immediately noticed an improvement in what the various insurance companies cover and don’t cover. We also noticed that there are many more companies offering pet insurance than there were three years ago; perhaps the competitive rates are due to the greater number of insurance-company choices.

We’ve listed the major players in pet health insurance, and the details of each plan, at the bottom of this article. But first, here are 15 things to pay attention to when deciding which of these plans might be best for you and your dogs.

If your dog becomes seriously ill or has an accident requiring surgery or other advanced treatment, having even lousy pet health insurance is better than having none at all. And having a good plan and knowing you can afford the co-payments can give you peace of mind at an otherwise terrible time.

Meet our adoptable dog of the week, Victoria!

My Story

Everyone meet Victoria!!!  Victoria is a female Boxer/French Bulldog who is 35 lbs of a delightful pocket bully (truly she is maybe 15 inches tall).  She is about 2 years old and is a bouncy fun gal who likes all people and dogs too. She was found as stray in Victoria, California (all attempts to locate the owners were unsuccessful). When found she was covered in hundreds of ticks and ever so skinny. Not sure if they come any cuter than Tori. She is good on a leash, is pottie trained, however, she will need a strong handler to keep her in line. Tori has been spayed, is up to date on her vaccinations, been treated for parasites and is also microchipped.. If interested in meeting or possibly adopting Tori, please go to www.lolr.org and fill out an adoption application.
