Podcast – Things To Consider When Boarding A Pet-Part 2

< Click to Listen to this Podcast >

In part two of this two-part series from 14JUL18, Kate and Don start off where they left off at the end of last week’s show; discussing group play at boarding and daycare facilities. They consider whether or not group play is appropriate for all dogs and what makes a good candidate for group play. They also suggest questions you should ask about group play before booking your dog at a kennel or daycare. Playgroup supervision, staff training, safety concerns for small dogs, and the importance of rest times are all things you should question. They then discuss alternatives to group play which at Green Acres include individual play and cuddle time. Don and Kate also discuss boarding dogs with medical issues and how Green Acres cares for a dog that is stressed or anxious.

UPDATE! – Pet Nutrition – Grain-Free Foods and FDA Reports of Increased Heart Disease in Dogs – WDJ Blog Post

< Updated 29SEP18 >

On July 22nd we informed you of a report issued by the FDA indicating an increase of dogs presenting with canine dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) and a possible but unconfirmed link to specific ingredients in grain-free foods < click to review >.

On August 2tnd Nancy Kerns, the editor of the Whole Dog Journal (WDJ) published an article entitled “Please Don’t Panic About the “Grain-Free Thing” on the WDJ Blog. The title says it all and could not be a better assessment of how to treat this issue. Sadly, minutes after I read Kerns post, I watched a story NBC aired a story on their national news broadcast that did not present all the facts and is likely to create unnecessary alarm. As Kern’s suggests “…take a breath.” Read her post, and you will be better informed on this issue than the media in general.
