Regardless of age or health, walk your dog one way or another

Q: Buster, our American bulldog, used to love his walks. Now it’s a miracle if he makes it around the block in half an hour. He’s not overweight and he’s on medications for arthritis, which have helped a lot, but it looks like it might be time to stop walking him. My husband disagrees. He thinks Buster should be walked anyway. He says all dogs benefit from walks, regardless of their condition. Is this true?

How often should you bathe your dog or cat?

It’s really not that hard to do but somehow we aren’t always keen to bathe our pets, given that they might prefer to skip the experience. But most actually quite like it if they’re introduced to it as a fun and rewarding activity.
