Attention pet parents! If you’ve ever looked into your furry friend’s eyes and wished they could tag along forever, this episode is for YOU. As a proud pet parent myself, I’m thrilled to share that our adorable companions can reap the benefits of longevity practices, just like we do!

In this episode, I’m joined by one of the best experts on the matter Dr. Gary Richter – America’s favorite veterinarian, best-selling author, and author of TWO brand new books: ‘Longevity for Dogs’ and ‘Longevity for Cats.’ 

We uncover the common mistakes pet parents unknowingly make, particularly when it comes to nutrition, and reveal what type of food is truly the best choice – even if you’re on a budget.

PLUS, we explore ways to relieve an anxious pet and unravel misconceptions surrounding spaying, neutering, and vaccinations. Finally, we share preventative measures you can take today to pave the way for a happier, healthier companion, and perhaps even delay that inevitable, heart-wrenching goodbye.
