Is your dog overweight?

Hello!

Do you know if your dog is overweight? Many of today’s dogs are overweight or obese. When determining if your dog is overweight take into account your dogs breed, age, and size. Most veterinarians use a 9-point scoring system to evaluate the body condition of your dog. A 1 means your dog is grossly underweight while a score of a 9 shows your dog is extremely overweight. The ideal score is a 5, which is just right. First you should be able to feel your dog’s ribs easily. The ideal dog will have a thin layer of fat over the ribs.

Fleas!

Keeping your dogs and cats up to date with their flea treatment is one of the most important things that you can do for your pet. If your pet develops or has a bad infestation of fleas it's hard work to get them under control and your pet can become very ill. Take a look for yourself on the internet at animals who have suffered from flea infestation...it's not pleasant!!
I had some literature in the post from the vet about a pill that can be given to dogs to treat fleas instead of the spot-on application.
