How much you should feed your pet depends on its age and activity level.  Daily feeding amount in food label only serves as a reference.

“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.”

– Roger Caras

Freeze drying is a process that involves freezing the product, lowering pressure, then removing the ice by sublimation. In contrast, conventional drying uses heat to remove water.

Small breeds tend to live longer than larger breeds. Tiny and toy breeds only become "seniors" when they are around age 10.

Complete and balanced pet food are those with added vitamins and minerals.  Those without are labeled as food for supplementary feeding only.

Dogs scoot because of overly full anal glands. Adding fiber to your dog's diet can minimize the necessity of manual anal gland expression.

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”

"In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this."

- Terry Pratchett

Chocolate is toxic to dogs because it contains a chemical called theobromine. The first signs of theobromine poisoning are nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and increased urination.

“If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.”

– Will Rogers

Digestive enzymes and probiotics can help maintain a healthy digestive tract and improve the absorption of nutrients.

Some common house plants are poisonous to dogs and cats. If you see your pets chewing on the plants, it is better to remove the plants.

The majority of essential oils are toxic to cats. All cats lack glucuronyl transferase, a liver enzyme, that helps to break down most essential oils.

Both flaxseed oil and fish oil provide omega-3 EFAs. However, the omega-3 EFA in flaxseed oil (ALA) is an inactive form and must be converted to EPA and DHA, the active forms of omega-3 EFA.

Some nutrients are lost due to heat and high pressure in pet food production.  Vitamins and minerals are added to make the food complete and balanced.

Dogs and cats most often develop allergies to the protein in meat and dairy products.  Hydrolysis is a method to break down protein molecules to prevent food allergies.

Paraben and its derivatives are commonly found in pet shampoo to prolong shelf life, but they may cause allergic contact dermatitis in pets and human.
