You've gotten your dog their spay or neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip, flea medication and city license. So what else is left to ensure you have a healthy pet?
A healthy diet!
Ernie Ward, a small animal veterinarian, wrote Chow Hounds as “a vet’s plan to save” dogs’ lives. It discusses the dog food industry along with why dogs are so overweight and addicted to food and treats. He provides excellent information to help get weight off your dog or prevent it from happening in the first place! If your dog needs to lose weight, this is a great resource along with seeking advice from your veterinarian.
“We’re killing our dogs by making them fat. There, I said it. That single observation led me to write this book. As a practicing veterinarian for almost twenty years, I am witnessing the gradual deterioration of pets’ health on a daily basis. My patients were getting fatter and facing more debilitating diseases as a result. The frightening fact was that no one was discussing it. The question was ‘Why not?'" -Ernie Ward, DVM
