Arthritis medication for Dogs

So your vet is telling you your dog has arthritis....
Did you know that arthritis medicine for canines is big business? 

The drug Rimadyl is one of the DVM's top bestsellers.  It has been prescribed to countless numbers of dogs in the United States and many other countries. Many vets and dog owners give praise to the drug but it has also stirred up much controversy with some pet owners complaining that nobody warned them of its bad side effects and risks.
The drug carprofen, also known as Rimadyl, Imadyl, and Imafen is a a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug for dogs and cats.
Most dogs respond well to carprofen use, but like all non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) medications used in humans and animals, it is capable of causing gastrointestinal, liver and kidney problems and other side effects including: decrease or increase in appetite, vomiting, change in bowel movements (such as diarrhea, or black, tarry or bloody stools), change in behavior (such as decreased or increased activity level, incoordination, seizure or aggression), yellowing of gums, skin, or whites of the eyes known as(jaundice), change in drinking habits (frequency, amount consumed), change in urination habits (frequency, color, or smell), change in skin (redness, scabs, or scratching), and liver or kidney problems

Contemplating on whether to give your dog Rimadyl or any other arthritis medicine is ultimately a personal choice and should be research as much as you can before making a decision and do discuss it with your veterinarian.

There are other options to look too.  Natural alternatives that can help relieve your pets symptoms and give them better over-all health.

Whichever route you decide it up to you, I tend to go the natural route first before putting my pet's physical health in jeopardy. Be sure you have thought it through before giving your dog something that could be potentially harmful to them. Your pets depend on you to make the right decisions for their care.

Westminster Best Of Breed Winner

Along with people all over the globe, those of us here at Life’s Abundance monitored the Westminster Dog Show with keen interest. In fact, two of our very own Field Reps were affiliated with a dog competing alongside hundreds of others at this parade of canine excellence!
Do you want to feed your dog like a Westminster Best Breed Winner? Well you can!

We weren’t disappointed. Tuesday night, the prized Mastiff, Seamus (full name, Beowulfs Bit O'Blarney) beat out 18 other Mastiffs to take a coveted Best of Breed prize. We couldn’t help but share big smiles as he grandly galloped around the show ring at Madison Square Garden … after all, he’s a Life’s Abundance dog! Susann Everett is his proud breeder and Traci A McKeown-Weaver is his thrilled pet parent.

If you missed the coverage on USA Network, don’t worry … you can watch all of the highlights online. In fact, we’ve included the video link below, capturing Seamus’ big win. As you’ll see, the onlookers erupted in cheers when the judge included him in the top dogs, and then again when he clenched the Best of Breed award. It was a fitting, belated birthday surprise, as he just celebrated his third birthday on January 6th.

One of the oldest breeds and believed to be the father of other working breeds, Mastiffs are known for their protectiveness and gentleness, and Seamus is no exception.

In addition to running her Life’s Abundance business, Susann operates Beowulf Mastiffs Global, a nurturing breeding business. If Susann’s name is familiar to you, it might be because she was featured in January’s Reward & Recognition announcement, when she achieved 9-Star status for her tireless promotion of Life’s Abundance. Traci is in Susann’s downline and she signed up as a Field Rep in October of 2010.

We’re all awfully proud of Susann and Traci’s loveable Mastiff.
Kudos to you all!

Dog Leashes

Dog leashes are not all the same. Here are four types:

Standard leashes are use for everyday use and basic obedience training. They are typically in 4-8 feet in lengths. Most leashes found in pet stores are 6 foot long which is ideal for most dog walking. The materials used are nylon or leather.

Adjustable leashes are similar to standard leashes, however they have several loops along the leash that allow the length to be adjusted to be shorter or longer. Kind of custom fitted to arm length. This also allows better training handling. Adjustable leashes are nice to attached to things such as park benches or trees.

Martingale leads are a collar and leash combo. They are Commonly used for toy or small breeds in the show ring or for a dog that does not were a collar in the home. The collar portion slips over the head and tightens when the lead is being pulled. Larger sizes are available for medium or larger dogs.

Retractable leashes contain a cord of up to 26 feet that retracts into a plastic case with a handle. The way it works is similar to that of a measuring tape. The leash can lock in place at any length. Retractable leashes allow your dog to freely wonder about without letting your dog off-leash. When using these leashes, you dog should be trained to walk on a regular leash. If your dog is not trained he will be hard to handle on a retractable leash. These leashes can become tangled around you or your dog resulting in a hazardous situation.

New Safe Retractable leash coming soon.

Retractable leashes pose problems for people and their pets.
Most accidents appear to happen when the cord wraps itself around fingers or when it snaps out and hits the eye or other body parts.
Dogs darting into the street, owners unable to jerk them back from afar.
Cord can lock into place and snap the dog's neck.
