Mimi has a little friend Bebe that she met at the Doggie Park about a year and a half ago. At that time Bebe was a fourteen year old Jack Russell. She was a little cranky and had some issues with her joints. However, Mimi saw a kindred spirit and they hit it off and became great friends.
I ask Bebe’s mom if she was on any supplements and she told me Bebe was on some really good canine vitamins. I mentioned to her that The Gift For Life was one of the best products I had found for all dogs but especially for dogs or cats with aging conditions.
She said she would give it a try and now Bebe is running and playing at the doggie park and no one can believe she is now fifteen years young because Bebe is The Queen of the Park.
As I have mentioned before in a previous blog, my Casper had been rescued but he had been kept in a crate with about twenty-five other dogs in the same room for quite sometime. So when I adopted this sweet boy he was under stress and his hair was coming out in handfuls. Also more disturbing was his teeth. I immediately took him off all commercial dog food that had grains, corn, potatoes and started feeding him high quality human grade food with no starches. I also did some research and found a Brush-less Breathless Toothpaste and a product of enzymes, Plaque Zappers I put in the water that breaks down tarter on there teeth. This little guy now has beautiful teeth and he gets rave reviews at his annual checkups.
