So how's your pet dog doing?
It is good to do pet comparison with other owners, especially if you have observed something is kinda different with your dog lately or when you are encountering a specific problem, whether it be on food, on bathing, on behavior, concern on your pet's coat, skin, ears, nails, teeth, etc.
Keep mental notes, but always consult your vet as you make a significant move on any treatment you are to do with your pet. Especially for pet meds, do call your veterinarian first before you let your precious pet swallow that pill, please.
Different strokes for different folks, or shall we say different dogs. Still, it's good to hear what the other pet owners do. First-hand personal experience is valuable information, be it a success or a failure. What doesn't work should also be taken in, so you would be able to avoid such.
