New Dog Nutrition Products for 2013

Last spring my golden retriever Lux started having kidney problems. At first, the diagnosis was a kidney infection likely caused by Lyme disease. A second opinion proved that false, but it didn't make the situation any better because it turned out she was experiencing renal dysplasia.

Throughout the initial diagnosis and treatment, I conducted a lot of research on tick-borne diseases and their prevention. What I found out is there are products that can help greatly when dealing with the tiny, disease-carrying bloodsuckers. Better yet, the canine health industry is working hard to create more effective products to protect all dogs, especially sporting breeds that are at the highest risk of tick exposure.

Lux's initial treatment involved a low protein diet that was available through prescription. Again I set out on a mission to learn as much as I could about canine nutrition. Although I lost my dog in a heartbreaking regression that occurred much faster than I could have imagined, I also learned a lot about what to do with future pups concerning proper nutrition and preventative and recovery-based medications. Companies throughout the industry are making strides every day to ensure we have the best products for our dogs' health and in-the-field performance.

To take the best care of your four-legged hunting partners, check out the best dog health and nutrition products for 2013.
