Here at Muddy Paws HQ, we are firm believers of the mantra that a healthy dog is a happy one. Keeping our dogs fit and healthy will help them to be our friends for life – something we were reminded of with Eukanuba’s Friends for Life competition which, as part of Crufts 2016, celebrates just how special four legged friends are. Changing their owners’ lives and helping them to overcome adversities, these dogs provide vital support every day, proving just how important having doggy friends for life can be.
With these wonderful dogs in mind, we wanted to share our top tips to help keep all four legged friends healthy, young at heart and help them to continue to be our very own furry...

I’m always caught unawares by the start of the warmer weather and the sudden appearance of those devilish parasites we know as ticks, clambering to get a foothold on Monty’s flesh. Ticks are more of a menace than you might think and pose all sorts of problems to your dog and to you. These small blood sucking arachnids are carriers of a bacterial infection known as Lymes Disease which cannot only cause acute inflammation of the joints in a dog but more seriously can lead to kidney damage or complications of the nervous system, although this is more rare. It also affects us humans and a tick which remains unnoticed on the skin for a prolonged period could make you feel quite unwell as...
