Dear dog lover:
Summer is in full swing and we hope you and your dog are taking advantage of the warm weather and long days.
 
Yesterday, we were pleased to host the second live webinar in our four-part educational series with VetVine. Last night's topic was joint health in dogs (on demand viewing link to be posted this week). The first webinar was on the topic of canine cancer (on demand viewing currently available). We have two more webinars planned: mental stimulation (9/9/15) and allergies and itchy skin in dogs (11/23/15). We hope you'll check out these great resources!

As always, we are grateful for your support and we thank you for loving dogs!

Dogs need time to become acclimated to the temperature changes as the weather begins to warm. High humidity can exacerbate or accelerate hyperthermia.   Learn More
