Sometimes, there’s just nothing better than a big ‘ol piece of junk food. I say it’s okay to splurge once in a while! (Can you tell from the look on Daley’s face – as he waited patiently for doggie banana bread – that he certainly agreed?!)
But most of the time you want to be careful not to consume worthless ingredients and that thinking certainly applies to seeking answers to your senior dog health questions online. I recently read a two-part blog post by Dr. Nancy Kay on how to find worthwhile canine health information online and she offers great tips for researching your senior dog’s needs.
The first post focuses on cutting out the “online junk food” from your research and provides seven tips for better searches. The second post offers advice on how to productively incorporate your own research into your discussions with your dog’s veterinarian.
