A dog's health is much more than just being without disease, it's about our dogs as a whole!
A healthy dog is defined as one who is balanced both physically and emotionally, which means they should be happy and agile with a good energy level.
Disease does not exist when all parts of the dog's body are working together synergistically and harmoniously!
By feeding our dogs a species appropriate diet, giving them plenty of exercise and stimulation, not over vaccinating and doing regular nose to tail inspections, our dogs will live a long, happy and healthy life, the way nature intended!
