Some dog owners feed sardines a few times per week, but combining them with celery and parsley can create a powerful “triple threat” effect.
Celery and parsley bring a couple of wonderful hormetic compounds into the mix: luteolin and apigenin.
Luteolin has been shown to counter chronic inflammation by decreasing the activity of genes involved in inflammation.
Apigenin is a flavonoid that has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory functions and has been widely investigated for its anti cancer effects.

I want to give a shout-out to Demi and her dog King. Demi wrote to ask me if I’d share King’s story, and you can bet I will because it goes to show just how much a dog’s life can change for the better.
King is a 12 year old GSD with some gastrointestinal challenges that were brought under control during a dietary consultation about two years ago. Once that was done, we had one other glitch to get through and that was a bigger problem – arthritis. Not your typical aches and pains, but rather, a dog that had to be held up when he went to potty outside. It was that bad. In fact, some people thought that King should be put down because there seemed to be no hope. Demi proved them wrong. We started adding Joint Complex twice daily, and although I’d usually add wild salmon oil, King’s diet was based on fish, so this wasn’t necessary. Read more Canine Arthritis

Some happy news: I received very nice emails over the last month from people who bought the digital download version of the booklet about arthritis in order to make changes to diet and supplements as soon as possible. They’re seeing positive changes in their dogs and it’s not surprising to me, but it sure feels good. Arthritis doesn’t necessarily care if the dog is young or old, but the older ones are the most likely to have the problem and I have a thing for old dogs. They’ve given us their whole lives and now they need us more than ever.
Obviously, I can’t (better said, I don’t have time) to write the entire booklet in a blog post, but here are some thoughts for you to consider:
Age is not a disease. Your older dog doesn’t need less protein in the diet – he or she needs more! Read more Arthritis in Dogs
