Dogs on the move! 

As pets age, they can develop mobility issues and arthritis just like their human companions! Fortunately, there are a number of simple and effective options to help pets get back on the move! Nearly everyone has heard that glucosamine supplements provide beneficial cushioning of aging joints, and there are plenty of folks who are using these supplements for themselves with great success. So why can't you just pop one of your glucosamine capsules in your pup's breakfast everyday? Well, there are a couple of reasons that this is not the best choice for your best friend. Over the counter supplements are neither formulated for a dog's specific body chemistry nor regulated by the FDA. So it is very likely that the amount of glucosamine in these capsules is not delivering the dose that your dog needs to maintain their joint health. WFAH recommends using Dasuquin Advanced (only available through veterinary offices). Dasuquin Advanced is formulated such that it is bio-available for dogs, and is guaranteed to contain an effective dosage of the supplements it is formulated with. Just glucosamine or glucosamine and chondroitin are often not enough on their own to support cartilage health. Nutramax has formulated Dasuquin Advanced with a specific and researched formula that delivers a high level of anti-inflammatory benefits and helps to keep those joints cushioned and cartilage healthy. Dasuquin Advanced is also compatible with any medications your pet may be on or any other health issues they may have. Often, our veterinarians recommend getting your dog started on Dasuquin Advanced at a young age to maximize its benefits. Once your dog has developed some arthritis, we can also use this product in conjunction with other anti-inflammatory medications to maximize your dog's mobility and comfort well into their senior years! 

Is your cat protected against parasites?

Feline heartworm disease is a silent killer, often being mistaken for other health conditions. Currently, therapies do not exist to treat a feline heartworm infection. This can result in long term lung damage and potentially death for infected cats. Based on the current research and our veterinarian's medical knowledge and experience, WFAH strongly recommends all cats (indoor kitties too!) receive monthly parasite prevention.  This is a way to protect both your cat and your family. Many of the parasites pets can pick up in their environment are zoonotic, meaning they can be transferred to humans. Children and seniors are especially at risk of zoonotic infections. Just think about all the times your kitty used their litterbox and then hopped up onto your lap, bed, or kitchen counters with their dirty little feet--yuck! WFAH now offers Revolution protects against heartworm disease, intestinal parasite and flea infestation, and ear mites.  We feel this is the best product on the market for feline parasite prevention!
