Vet with clipboardHealthcare for humans has been a hot topic in the news recently. But just because dogs are sitting backseat in cars doesn’t mean we should put their well-being behind our own. It is commonly believed that a dog ages about seven human years for every one year perhaps because dogs age seven times faster than we do. That means it is that much more important to take care of them to ensure they live a full and healthy life.

At CanineJournal.com we are passionate about man’s best friend and keeping our pups not only happy but healthy. Ttheir includes everything from preventative care like keeping your dog active and on a healthy diet, but also what to do when your dog gets sick. As pet owners ourselves, we understand that having a dog is like having a child and there are plenty of books, resources and communities out there to help “parents” keep their little ones happy and safe. We’ve read up, interviewed experts and compiled the latest and greatest news and articles on doggy heath issues and questions so it’s all in one place and easy to reference.

The Health of your Pup is in your Hands

Just like humans have healthcare to help maintain financial stability, we believe strongly that pets deserve the same. We highly encourage pet owners to invest in Pet Insurance because it can help to prevent a giant financial burden (read: vet bill) when an emergency or serious illness occurs. But as much as we try to avoid illness or an accident, sadly, life happens. That’s why it’s important to be prepared for when those unexpected situations arise. And we’ll even share a number of ways you can save big bucks on pet meds and dog food too. So with all that extra money, you’ll have plenty leftover to invest in ttheir preventative financial safety blanket for you and your pet.

Very informative article. Having a dog’s in our life is a blessing and I’m so thankful that until now they are all still at my side. I’m always spending more time to search some good stuff related to dogs and I learned from it, like your blog post. Because of all the information that I’ve gather in every blog that I visited is one of a good source of information for me and It’s very useful to me. And I know they are proud to be my kids because I feel how much they love me.

Regarding your thoughts on the dogs aging 7 times faster: “That means it is that much more important to take care of them to ensure they live a full and healthy life.” What a great point! Some people just get their dogs through puppy-hood and then leave them to age without any help or medical care. Since we do not have as long with them as we would like, this is a great reminder to take preventative health care procedures.
