Are you guys having photos with Santa again this year?
This is my girl Kinny. She just watched Skinny on Animal Planet/My Cat from Hell with Jackson Galaxy. She wanted to say CONGRATULATIONS Skinny on your weight loss! Keep up the great work. We love you!❤️🐈🐾
Hello HEAL! What are your thoughts on CBD/hemp oil for dogs? For pain, anxiety, etc. I’m hearing so much about it these days from other dog owners.
Thank you, Dr. Gaines, for squeezing me in on a Friday after I hurt my back leg muscles Thursday night! Since I’m already a tripod, it’s a really big deal for me! Your super cool laser treatments really helped me a lot. Not quite standing without help yet, but I am trying hard and loving all the rides in the car!

❤️ Gigi

What is the Logic Behind Not Exercising Puppies Until the Growth Plates are Closed?

This is a great article on exercise in puppies. The key is to invest in eliminating genetic factors, avoid overweight body condition, consistency and moderate impact.

What is the Logic Behind Not Exercising Puppies Until the Growth Plates are Closed? Over the years, many breeders, trainers, and owners have said that puppies should not be exercised until the growth plates are closed. I have been asked to radiograph 12-month-old dogs to make sure their growth plates are closed. Recently, a well-regarded colleague told me that he had an owner that....
