BY DONNA RICHARDSON, PET NUTRITIONIST — I want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your support this past year. We have enjoyed being a part of White Fang Ventures and are looking forward to what 2015 has to offer.
In reviewing highlights of 2014, a common denominator has been and will continue to be support of the immune system. There cannot be enough emphasis placed on maintaining a strong immune system. Lots of serious health issues stem from a weakened immune system.
To get Fido through the hustle and bustle of the holidays, please remember to maintain proper diet and exercise for your dogs. It is very easy to get caught up in the moment and forget to take that walk. It is very difficult not to cave in to the eyes of the hungry beggar.
Sometimes we have to remind guests not to slip bites of goodies here and there. There are several things, such as chocolate, grapes, onions, etc. that should not be given to dogs. Also, avoid fatty foods. We are fine with giving our dogs raw marrow bones. But never cooked bones.
Perhaps my next article will include weight loss tips for your pets. Once again, thank you for allowing us to be part of your “pet family”.

Have a safe and wonderful holiday season.
