A healthy well-groomed dog is a happy dog. According to Lisa Sellman, professional dog trainer, canine massage therapist and founder of Good Dog LLC., a dog’s overall health revolves around the basics with a nutritious diet, regular exercise and grooming. Sellman recommends feeding your dog a high-quality, protein-rich diet including good fats like coconut or flax seed oil for a beautiful coat and hydrated skin. Sellman claims that it is less expensive to provide your pet with high-quality food. “They eat less junk, are healthier, and live longer, which means fewer expensive veterinary visits,” she says. In addition to a healthy diet, proper baths, nail trimmings, teeth brushing and exercise are the best ways to ensure a long, happy and healthy life for your furry companion.
Keep your dog healthy from the inside out.
