Our very own black Labrador Shadow has recently been diagnosed with arthritis and muscle weakness in his back legs - a condition commonly seen in older Labradors.
With Shadow now 10 and half years old we had already taken steps to ease the onset of arthritis by ensuring that he has oily fish, coconut and salmon oil as part of his diet, as well has taking YuMove joint pills every day too. Following discussions with our vet, Zoe, atCompanion Care, Poole,
it was decided to start Shadow on anti-inflammatory medication for two weeks.
Keeping the kitties purring
In the late Autumn of 2015Margaret Green Animal Rescue at Church Knowle, Nr Wareham put out an appeal asking for donations of kitten
food as they had many in their care and they all needed lots of food!
On hearing of the appeal Karen (Owner of Paws and more),
put out her own appeal message stating that she would like to help out and asked her clients, friends and family to
get involved too. Over the next few weeks she received and collected donations
of not just kitten food but also for older and senior cats too.
