(The Best Years in Life) Once while walking our small dog I ran into a woman I knew who often walked her two small dogs in the same area. But this time she only had one with her.

The Importance of Zinc for Animals

by Tom Cameron, DVM

(The Best Years in Life) Recently, the European Union lowered the zinc requirement in animal feeds (livestock and smaller animals), not for nutritional reasons, but because of the dangerous accumulation of zinc in the soil and water. Zinc is a heavy metal, and too much can have devastating effects on plant life, as well as human and animal health.

Is Grain-Free Really Better for Dogs and Cats?

by Nature's Logic

(The Best Years in LifeDog and cats are naturally carnivores receiving the majority of their required nutrients from meat. This has lead pet food manufactures to create grain-free formulas for both dogs and cats promoting that it is healthier and more natural.

by Luella May

(The Best Years in Life) With the wide variety of pet foods on the market, it can be difficult to determine if the food you are giving your pet is healthy. All too often caring and loving pet owners choose their dog food based on advertising.
