Tips for keeping your dog living a longer life.
From Animal Transporters...
Our pets are so important to us. We view them as family, our
best friend. They are always loyal and accept us no matter
what it is we've done. So we want to take care of them, keep
them happy and health, living a longer life. Here are some
good tips on how to keep your loved pets healthy. Some are
simple, some you may not know about. Remember, you always
want your dog healthy as possible and ready for any kind of
pet travel, transportation or relocation.
1) Feed them
good quality food. Getting the proper food, high in proteins
is very important. It's hard for me to recommend exactly
what to feed your dog, because it depends on the dog, and
age. I'd do some research, figure what food is good. Check
with your vet, and get their opinion. That's the best way
obviously. Dogs should only be fed twice a day, usually 1
cup each(depending on the weight and size of the dog).
Again, if you're a new dog owner, or not sure, ask your vet.
2) Give them
Omega-3. Not only is it good for us humans, it's great for
pets. Vets use it to treat a lot of diseases for pets. Its
great for their immune system, supports healthy hearth, and
kidney function. May reduce risk of cancer and help treat
pets who have cancer. Give your pet one omega-3 oil every
day, with their meal. It's great for their skin and coat as
well. Helps with arthritis and joints. Also helps with their
moods and keeps them happy. Dogs can get depressed too.
3) Give them
Virgin Coconut Oil. This is great helping your pet lose
weight, and feel younger. It gives them more energy,
protects and supports their immune system. It's great for
their skin and can help with arthritis. Reduces
Cardiovascular diseases. Prevents cancer and kills cancer
cells, avoiding tumors and lumps. Virgin Coconut Oil is one
of the best weapons against cancer. I've used this oil to
put on lumps my dog developed, and they went away. Reduces
inflammation. Delay the shrinkage of the thymus(the occurs
during the aging process). Start out with a teaspoon,
feeding it along with their dinner. Work up to a tablespoon,
per 30 pounds. Check with your vet if you want to be sure.
feeding them table scraps. This is a bad and easy way to get
your dogs health in serious risk. They cannot be eating the
food we eat. If you have a habit of do this, stop doing it.
It's not good for them and they are going to pay for it if
you keep doing it.
5) Take them
to the vet for regular checkups. I know the vet seems like
the scariest place to be for pet lovers. It's important to
continue to take them to your vet for checkups, just incase
there is problems, they can treat it right away incase
something gets worse. I think you should take your dog in at
least once every three months. Older dogs may need to go
more than that.
6) Walk them
regularly. It's good to keep your pet active and give them
the energy needed. Take them for walks around the block
regularly, and keep them active. Pet just like people need
7) Give them
only two biscuits a day. Don't give them treats constantly
all the time. If you give the other snacks, same thing. It's
okay to give them biscuits, because it's great for their
teeth. Buy the smaller box, and only give them two. I
usually give my dog his when he comes inside. He's used to
getting something as a reward. Instead of giving him
biscuits, I cut up little carrots and give him that instead.
If you are used to taking your dog out, then giving them a
biscuit, you can give them carrots instead. Carrots are
healthy and harmless. Or you don't have to give them any
thing, but if they're like my beagle, they'll beg you until
you give them something. (remember NO chocolate,
onions, garlic, grapes, raisins, macadamia nuts,
xylitol (artificial sweetener)

Thank you for your kindness and attention with my dog Bucky, I appreciate your sensitivity.
I have been using Animal Transporters for close to 5 years. The service is great, they know ALL of the vets in Los Angeles and the surrounding areas AND the driver is pet friendly and professional. Their prices are reasonable, too, even with gas prices being close to 4.00 a gallon.
