Choosing the Right Adult Dog Food

proper dog food

Discovering your dog’s proper and balanced nutrition needs is an important part of keeping him healthy and happy. But not all adult food is the same. Learn how the right food can help him stay healthy throughout his adult years and prepare him for his senior years.

WHAT TYPE OF ADULT DOG FOOD IS IDEAL?

Choosing the right food for your adult dog includes supporting his unique health needs, which may include weight management, oral care, sensitive skin, digestion, activity level and more.

Highly active sporting dogs may require foods that are higher in energy, fat and protein. Weight management formulas are recommended for overweight dogs.

If your dog has sensitive skin or a sensitive stomach, consider a tailored grain- free or limited ingredient formula that can help minimize these issues.

For dogs that may be prone to plaque and tartar buildup, quality nutrition that’s specially formulated to help clean teeth and gums can support better dental health.

Golfing

Golf is a club and ball sport in which players use various clubs to hit balls into a series of holes on a course in as few strokes as possible.

Golf is one of the few ball games that do not require a standardized playing area. The game is played on a course with an arranged progression of either nine or 18 holes. Each hole on the course must contain a tee box to start from, and a putting green containing the actual cup. There are other standard forms of terrain in between, such as the fairway, rough, and hazards, but each hole on a course is unique in its specific layout and arrangement.

Golf is played for the lowest number of strokes by an individual, known as stroke play, or the lowest score on the most individual holes in a complete round by an individual or team, known as match play. Stroke play is the most commonly seen format at all levels.

Top Music

As summer draws to a close, and with the big surge of fall releases on the horizon, it’s time to take stock of the year in music so far. By May, we were already gifted with top-notch releases from some of the biggest names of our time.

David Bowie — ‘Blackstar’

January 8

This album will most certainly go down as one of the most chilling and beautiful musical farewells. Filled with musings on Bowie’s own mortality, Blackstar was released two days before his death. It’s a final statement so stunningly perfect that it couldn’t have been made by anyone else.
Anderson .Paak — ‘Malibu’

January 15

Effortlessly moving between soul, R&B, and hip-hop, Anderson .Paak is Southern California’s strongest voice in the genre since Frank Ocean. Perhaps what’s impressive is his versatility as a musician—.Paak raps, sings, and sometimes even plays drums alongside his band.

Bathing Your Cat

With her built-in grooming tools (tongue and teeth), your fastidious feline is well-equipped to tackle her own hair care needs. But if she is very dirty or gets into something sticky or smelly, you may need to give her a bath. Follow these steps to ensure minimal stress and maximum efficiency.

Brushing Your Cat

Brushing your cat not only removes dirt, grease and dead hair from her coat, but it helps to remove skin flakes and stimulates blood circulation, improving the overall condition of her skin. One or two brushings per week will help kitty to keep her healthy glow—and you’ll find that regular sessions are especially beneficial when your cat ages and is no longer able to groom so meticulously on her own.

Skin Problems

The condition of your cat’s skin is an indication of her overall health. When a skin problem occurs, your cat may respond with excessive scratching, chewing and/or licking. A wide range of causes—from external parasites and allergies to seasonal changes and stress, or a combination of these—may be affecting your cat’s skin and should be investigated. Skin problems are one of the most common reasons pet parents seek veterinary care.

Shedding

Shedding is a cat’s natural process of losing dead hair. Indoor cats can shed all year-round. Regularly grooming your cat and vacuuming hair from your house should minimize the inconvenience of shedding. However, if you see bald patches in your cat’s fur or notice a significant loss of hair, the underlying cause may be a health-related problem and should be investigated by a veterinarian.

Directory on the World Wide Web

A web directory or link directory is a directory on the World Wide Web. A collection of data organised into categories. It specializes in linking to other web sites and categorizing those links.

A web directory is not a search engine and does not display lists of web pages based on keywords; instead, it lists web sites by category and subcategory. Most web directory entries are also not found by web crawlers but by humans. The categorization is usually based on the whole web site rather than one page or a set of keywords, and sites are often limited to inclusion in only a few categories. Web directories often allow site owners to submit their site for inclusion, and have editors review submissions for fitness.
