    Mystery Meat
    Posted by fred on Tuesday, February 27 @ 07:13:33 EST (26180 reads)
    Nutrition & Diet Written by: Erin Harty, Staff Writer - VetCentric.com

    It all looks pretty good—or would to a cat or a dog, you assume. (You’ll stick with people food, thanks.) Chicken, beef, and fish. Chunks of meat in gravy. Crunchy kibble. These are, after all, the same animals that relish raids on the garbage can or litter box. They can’t possibly be that picky. This article clarifies some of those cryptic descriptions we see on dog food..

    WD Vet Center Opens!
    Posted by fred on Monday, January 15 @ 08:00:07 EST (26226 reads)
    Veterinary HealthWhether your dog works as a Police K9, Assistance Dog, SAR, Herding, or competes in Schutzhund or other sports, we have felt that one of the features that our visitors really need is the ability to "Ask a veterinarian". Workingdogs.com gets between 10-20 medical related questions a week, so we decided the best thing would be to open a vet center for the Working Dog. Dr. Randy Acker is hosting Question and Answer Forums on the topics of Canine Trauma, Orthopedic questions, and Working Dog and Sports Medicine. Dr. Acker is the first of several veterinarians which will be joining our new center, so be sure to check back often to see which new areas we add.
