So you’ve got that new puppy or kitten and you’ve been agonizing over getting him or her “fixed” and when. Perhaps your breeder has told you one thing and your next door neighbor has told you another. It’s also possible you adopted a pet from a shelter or rescue (for which we’d like to say thank you!) and the decision to spay/neuter was already made for you but you’re interested in this topic all the same.
It’s that scenario many of us are familiar with. It might be at home (typically when friends or family are visiting), maybe it’s on a walk through the neighborhood, or at the dog park. Your pup starts to drag her bottom on the ground. Everyone stops and stares. Some chuckle.

But if you’ve ever had to address that elephant in the room that is your gas-prone pup, especially during the holidays when guests and family are visiting, the humor is harder to appreciate. The stress that your gassy dog can have on your relationship together is no laughing matter.
We dog lovers like nothing better than a warm wet kiss from a furry friend. It’s a good sign of the bond we share with them. But there can be one deterrent that would keep us from enjoying that sloppy wet kiss.“Doggy breath” can be bad enough but if you catch your pal eating poop, all bets are off.
Dog vitamins and supplements are extremely popular. There’s so many out there! But what constitutes a vitamin and what constitutes a supplement? Do supplements need a prescription and in what cases might my pooch need one? Before we get into some specific supplements and when we might consider them, let’s take a few moments to answer some of these questions.
