Our yellow lab, Hudson, however, was slow and arthritic by the time he was 10. At the time, I didn't know as much about quality dog food as I do now. I often wonder if I'd fed him better quality food, if it would have improved his health.
Recently I attended a briefing by Pet md and Hill's Science Diet and learned about My Bowl for dogs, which helped me visualize nutritional needs for pets. Also, now that I'm dieting with my dog, I've discovered how quality ingredients in pet food can affect our dogs' health and weight.

Kelly may be spry now, but I'm sure to keep an eye on her as she enters her doggy silver years. I want to keep those bones and joints strong for as long as possible.
