This is an excellent article that gives you tips to ensure that your aging puppy stays healthy.  The best tip of all, in my opinion is don’t assume that a change in your pup’s normal behavior is just old age….Take your fur baby to the vet to make sure that there is no physiological reason for the behavior change,   Diseases associated with aging can be controlled if discovered early enough.

Also check out the amazing sales that are happening through the 20+ links to a variety of pet supply stores, ie.  Petco, Petsmart,  800 Pet Meds plus many specialty stores for pets and pet parents in your families or friends.   It is one stop shop and learn.    If  you are an AMAZON,  iTUNES,  or WALMART,   FANATIC use THESE links on this site to go directly there.  You can purchase anything on these sites – not just pet supplies !  Just go to  the department or song you want and buy it.  this site is one stop shop and learn!

If you want your pet featured on this site,  you can visit my Facebook  page , Lovin My Pup,  click on ” Visitor post ”  and enter the information  there, or send it to me (Marsha LoVerso) by Instant Messenger.   I would need 2 or 3 of your favorite  pictures of your pet, pet’s name, age, breed of dog or type of cat,  and interesting facts about your pet that you would like posted.     IT’S A FUN WAY FOR YOUR PET TO SHINE.!    I will send you notice when the post goes on line.    

We can also memorialize a pet who has passed for all eternity on line.  This is a great way to give the pet a final tribute, and give the pet family a sense of closure and forever documentation of his/her life with you.  It’s a beautiful way to say goodbye!

AND DON’T FORGET TO SHARE YOUR LOVE WITH YOUR  PET(S)  EACH AND EVERY DAY!

SEE YOU AGAIN SOON!
