If you’re a health-conscious adult, you’re probably aware of the benefits of omega-3 fish oil. Omega-3 supplements can also provide your dog with a health-enhancing boost, and may be an effective remedy in the treatment of common ailments. It may also give your dog a much-needed boost if your dog suffers from arthritis.

The Benefits of Fish Oil

Have you noticed your dog’s skin appears dry or irritated? Does he spend time itching below a dull coat? Are you tired of excessive shedding, or concerned because his energy level seems lower than normal? If so, adding an omega-3 supplement to your dog’s daily routine might be extremely helpful. Omega-3 is an essential acid, or polyunsaturated fat, that must be consumed through diet. Most commercial dog foods contain enough omega-6s, but not nearly enough omega-3s.

Dog Car Ride

There are few experiences more rewarding than owning a dog — after all, your dog lives to please you, and no matter what events happen during the day, your dog is always on your side. In celebration of Love Your Pet Day, here’s how you can show him you love him in ways he’ll understand and enjoy.

1. Make Exercise a Fun Habit

There is nothing more enjoyable for a dog than heading out for a walk, playing fetch in the backyard, taking a trip to the beach or meeting new friends at the dog park. Yes, you have to find the time for it — but once you do, you’ll see how much he enjoys it and you’ll have a hard time depriving him.

Love Your Pet Day

 

Fletcher and Wallace:  Next Level Dachshunds

To most people, the two creatures in the photo look like you average run-of-the-mill lazy dogs.  In our household, they are very much more.

Whether it’s there consistent cacophony of barking anytime someone walks past the window or their high pitched howling when the fire siren goes off at noon on Saturday, moments of silence are rare.  The boys arch-enemies are birds, squirrels, rabbits, and guests who sits in their spot on the couch. Their best friends are anyone with meat and my wife and I, especially when we come home from a long day at work.
