Sadly, the health statistics of our canine companions isn't pretty. Just in the last 5 years, diabetes is up 900% in the United Kingdom, with obesity up 60% in America. Studies now show 1 in 2 dogs will succumb to cancer and out of all mammals on the planet, the dog has the highest rate of this disease. So what's the good news...?? Studies also show that while 10% of all cancers are genetic, 90% are the result of lifestyle and environmental influences. A study conducted by Purdue University found that feeding your dog leafy green vegetables a minimum of 3X per week, reduced the risk of cancer by 90%. Be proactive, don't wait until there's a problem. For more helpful info on this subject, check out this TED talk, it's mind boggling!
