Roundworms are the most common worms in dogs, and many young puppies get infected. Although routine deworming can prevent serious problems, it’s important to know how to spot the signs of a roundworm infestation in your pup. Left untreated, puppies and even some adult dogs can become very ill.

Our furry friends need high-quality food to stay healthy and fit, but many dog owners resort to over-processed kibble or canned dog food full of unnatural fillers and empty calories. Ollie has an easy and very healthy solution.
This company offers human-grade dog food chock full of healthy proteins, veggies and superfoods that they customize for your dog’s particular nutritional needs. And they deliver right to your door. How does Ollie work? And are their meals worth it? See our Ollie dog food review and read our personal experience.
Ollie is a premium, subscription-based fresh dog food company that personalizes your pup’s food. Many pet nutritionists are proponents of feeding your dog fresh, whole-food ingredients. However, this super-healthy approach to dog chow comes at a high price compared to kibble. So, how much does Ollie dog food cost? Because this brand factors in your furry friend’s unique nutritional needs, the answer is that your price depends on your dog. Ollie ranges anywhere from $20 to $100 or more per week. To give you a better idea of the cost, we ran quotes for several different breeds and sizes for all three of Ollie’s subscription options. We also share our personal experience with their dog food and why it’s one of our favorite fresh dog food delivery services.
Your dog escaped the house and wandered off. Or perhaps they were hoping out of the car or crossing the street into incoming traffic. Then the worst happens. Hope for the best, but plan for the worst. Although the thought of having your dog getting hit by a car is scary, it’s good to be prepared and know what to do should you be stuck in this high-stress situation.
You may have heard that dogs only see the world in black, white, and shades of gray. This was the accepted belief for years. But that thinking is in the past. Research has shed some fascinating light on how dogs see color and how their color vision differs from humans. While dogs can see color, they cannot see all of them the same way humans can. Dog owners have many questions about whether dogs are color blind and what precisely the visible dog color spectrum is. There is more than a simple yes or no when answering the question, “Can dogs see color?”
Feeding a large breed of dog is a massive responsibility. While plenty of high-quality, very nutritious dog food options are available on the market, they are not all created the same. Not every brand or recipe can support the needs of a large or giant breed. Owners must pay attention to the details of where food comes from and the main ingredients used. Larger breeds need nutrition that supports their bigger bodies, heavier frames, and the high use of their joints. We looked at some of the best large-breed dog foods available and want to share what we found.
If you have a fussy furball, you’re probably wondering, what’s the best-tasting dog food for picky eaters? Just like humans, every dog has its own preference for flavors and food textures. So there’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to finicky pooches. Owners whose dogs scarf down their meals within minutes can’t relate, but many of us face the daily struggle of having a picky dog. We’ve done extensive research into all types of canine chow, so we’ll give you our top picks for the best dog food for picky eaters, from fresh and wet options to dry kibble and dehydrated choices. And don’t miss our expert tips and tricks to entice your pup to eat every meal, including our tasty, healthy meal-topper recommendations.
Whether you suspect your dog has a food intolerance or you’ve already confirmed it, finding treats for your furry friend can be quite challenging. As you’ve likely already discovered, many commercial treats contain ingredients that are far from allergy-friendly. But fortunately, there’s a quickly growing market for healthy, natural, and limited-ingredient dog treats, and many are excellent options for food-sensitive pups. See our 10 best hypoallergenic dog treats for all breeds and dietary needs. And for doggies new to the food-intolerance rollercoaster, we give you ideal treat ingredients to look for (and those to avoid), ways to narrow down what’s causing your pup’s allergy symptoms, and much more.
