The Myths About High Protein In Your Dog’s Diet

High Protein Dog Diet

Some research here in North American indicated that higher levels of protein in your dog’s diet would lead to kidney failure. (Which baffled me, as an European-born person) However, the studies that showed a relationship to high protein levels and kidney failure that sparked concerns about protein levels in dog’s diets were not sound. The research was performed on rats, not dogs. Rats primarily eat plants as their natural diet. Naturally, rats biological makeup would indicate trouble digesting diets containing high levels of protein. The rats have difficulty excreting protein due to their specific dietary needs, not because the high … Read more

Yani -The Little Blind Chihuahua

Yani is another of the dogs I used to take care off – a little 3yrs old Chihuahua which is blind.

At first she was a little shy, because she was in a new environment, but as soon as she got used to us, our house, smells and sounds, she loved to get out of her pen, walking around, exploring, playing even running around near by me when I was sitting down on the floor with her.
