What do you like about this subject?

It is an honor to be able to help the dogs that are in need of either nutritional or behavorial support.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I hope to continue learning about cutting edge canine health issues, behavorial issues, and to rescue more dogs from early deaths due to poor nutrition and poor medical practice.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Spay/Neutering can save the lives of millions of dogs each year. Most dogs are brought to kill shelters as a result of poor problem solving techniques on the part of their owners. Information is everything!

Something controversial or provocative about this subject
