Cranberry Juice

The vet is recommending I start giving my male cranberry juice everyday to help with UTI prevention.

I know a long time ago I was told not give a dog cranberry or grape juice. What is correct?

Paws and Nails

My 11 month old male has been dealing with nail issues on his back paws for months now. It seems to be progressively getting worse as he gets older. His back nails seem to be always wore down to the nerve. I cut his front nails all the the time but never the back ones. Although compared to my female...

You can also use Dramamine as well.

If she really did get into rat poison I would take her to the vet immediately!!!! How long ago did she get into the poison? If it wasn't long ago I would try to make sure vomit by using Hydrogen Peroxide. You can get Care Credit to help you will the funds. Also some vets will work on payment plans i...

My dogs eat twice a day. My male (55 - 60 pounds) eats 3 cups a day of Nature's Variety and he goes twice a day. My female (48 pounds) eats 2 cups a day and goes about 4 times on the same food. When she was on Timberwolf before they switched their ingredients, she used to go once a day, maybe twice.

Some companies fill their bags with hydrogen before sealing to keep the food fresher longer. Once you open the factory seal you are letting oxygen in which is one of the causes of food "going bad". Depending on the food, it is best to no open the bag and/or like Maryellen said put it in a ...

From what Nature's Variety's customer service has told me...

Our food if kept unopened in a cool climate will stay fresh for up to 14 months from date of production. I would not recommend keeping it in any place to warm as this will spoil the food faster than the expiration date.
