King Shepherd Q&AAsk a Question
Fantastic. Very protective and gentle
My King Shepherd dog is almost 10 years old. We live in the country and he has a lot area to run, but he's starting to limp a lot lately. I've read that these breeds have a lot of hip problems. Is there anything I can do with herbs to help him. I want to keep him around as long as possible. He's our family BABY and still tries to get on my husbands lap as big as he is.
What do you feed him? Commercial dog food will really hurt your dogs health. Rice, chicken. fish, eggs and veggies are the way to go. Goats milk is also great for your dog.
