Nutrition!

Did you know that dogs have 1,700 taste buds and cats have 500, compared to the average person with 9,000? Nutrition is such a fascinating subject.

Royal Canin Starter for moms and baby puppies

I can't say enough good things about this food.  Puppies can be introduced to starter at 3 weeks of age with no adverse effects like runny stools.
