How to choose a bowl for a dog? It would seem that there is nothing complicated in this matter. But in practice, it turns out that one model is much more convenient than another and that an improperly selected bowl can lead to poor posture and even an upset stomach. In our article we will tell you what to look for when choosing a bowl in the first place.

Also in the season there is a great risk of catching a tick – and the more closely you monitor the condition of your pet, the lower the risk of serious ailments. Continue reading
