Agility, Herding, & Working Dogs

Are you and your pet in agility, hunting dog, or guard dog training? Just like a high performance athlete, your agility, working or herding dog can suffer injuries. Make sure you treat your pet’s injuries the way you’d treat your own: with rest, ice and appropriate medication. Dietary supplements like Omega 3 fatty acids help dogs recover more quickly from injuries and along with chondroprotectives, help keep joints healthy on a long-term basis.
