Dog Food and Fireworks

I have had a lot of inquiries about a safe dog food after the news release about Grain Free food and the harmful effects it could have. THE ONLY HARMFUL FOOD IS GRAIN FREE. Food companies listed as possible risk to your dog included Nutri Source, THE GRAIN FREE FORMULA. We feed and recommend Nutri Source and Life’s Abundance. The possible danger in Grain Free is taurine. There is no danger in feeding large breed puppy or adult Nutri Source foods or any of the other foods listed, as long as you don’t feed Grain Free. If you have any questions about this feel free to contact me.

With the Fourth of July celebrations, there can be a lot of irresponsible fireworks. If you have a new puppy or an older dog that shows a little apprehension to loud bangs and explosions…I suggest you keep your dog indoors as much as possible during this celebration. If your dog is really frightened, put it in the crate in your lower level with a towel over the crate and loud fan or noise machine going so he can’t hear or feel what’s going on outside. Use common sense. If your dog has to be out with you keep him on a leash next to you at all times. Have fun celebrating our Nation. I am so thankful to live in America. After visiting India in January I am even more aware of how blessed we are. Happy 4 of July!
