Answers To Common Nutritional Questions For Dogs

2018-12-30T08:24:11-05:00Categories: Wisteria Goldens Blog|

The research I've done is in regard to Golden Retrievers, as well as the quality of ingredients and where the dog food is manufactured (which does make a difference.)  Large breed dogs do have different needs and requirements vs small breed dogs.  Dogs that are used in sportsman activities, agility competitions etc…also have different nutritional requirements.

Dogs are also like humans and some have faster metabolisms than others and require higher amounts of food.  Dog food bags have “recommended” feeding amounts.  They are guidelines and your individual dog may need more or less food to […]

Vaccine Recommendations

2017-08-11T17:37:33-05:00Categories: Wisteria Goldens Blog|Tags: , , , |

Vaccine Recommendations Wisteria GoldensVaccine recommendations vary from vet to vet.  Some of the differences are due to the environment in which the puppy lives in, state and county laws, and what education the veterinarian received.  It can be confusing as to which vaccines are actually needed, which ones are considered safe, and when to get boosters.

Just like the controversy with our children and vaccines, there are the same with puppies/dogs.  If you research vaccines for canines, there are many articles that state that vaccines are causing tumors at the location of where the […]

When our research focused on that fact we discovered the potential risks. When essential oils are used with cats, without proper guidance, […]
