The Assembly Line of Life.

Posted by Bil-Jac on Oct 13, 2017 11:02:00 AM

Your dog’s health and vitality depend on amino acids.

Your dog’s hair, skin, eyes, muscles and organs are all made from protein. But protein doesn’t just happen in your buddy’s body. It’s built in a kind of assembly line that has about 20 crucial steps, each of which depends on the availability of a specific molecule called an amino acid. Your dog’s body makes half of these amino acids itself. But there are ten that need to be provided daily by the food he eats. These are called the 10 “Essential Amino Acids,” because if any of them go missing, the whole protein assembly line is limited.

Is Your Dog Fit or Fluffy?

Posted by Bil-Jac on Oct 13, 2017 10:16:00 AM

Have you noticed if your pooch has put on a few pounds recently? You are not alone. The Association for Pet Obesity Prevention (APOP) found in their 2016 survey that 54% of dogs are either overweight or obese. If you cannot easily see and feel the ribs on your dog, your dog may be packing some extra pounds. Two extra pounds may not sound like much, but on a 10-pound dog, two pounds adds 20% more weight to wear!  A 2014 study by the American Animal Hospital Association found that keeping your pooch in shape can add years to your dog’s life.

Oftentimes, too much food and a lack of activities are the reasons behind weight gain. In addition, some dog breeds have a tendency to gain weight, which is not healthy. If you suspect there may be a health issue with your pet, you should check with your veterinarian.
