Pet Events from August 6 - August 13, 2014
This week's Pet Events Newsletter is brought to you by
DGP for Pets!


Your loyal pet has been an integral member of your family for years. Due to their advanced age, however, they may no longer be able to play and take part in family activities. Dogs suffering from aches and discomfort are often depressed, sullen and on edge. They seem to lose their happy personality, tend to sleep more, withdraw from the family or even become aggressive. As they age, it's increasingly important to support a dog's joint mobility and flexibility. They need a little help from you...


All-natural DGP® has been specifically formulated by master herbalists and scientists in Australia to help support a dog's joint mobility and flexibility. DGP helps ease aches and discomfort caused by daily exercise and activity. Not a prescription medication - it is an herbal formulation that you can give to your dog with confidence. It is 100% natural, safe, effective and affordable, with a unique blend of high quality ingredients, to help maintain your dog's mobility as he ages.


If it breaks your heart to watch your pet age, and struggle to walk or climb stairs, or have discomfort getting up or down, try DGP for a week or so - 

you won't be disappointed!

Wonderful Molly, lover of people and a dog with no luck. Molly is a soulful Amstaff mix, about 7yrs of age (1/2 of those years spent in shelters), fully vetted, spayed and awaiting love and her 4ever home. She is an angel on leash and knows basic commands; finally briefly adopted and returned months later when the family broke up. Molly is dog selective (altho' she has some K9 buddies) and does not enjoy cats - she just wants love and attention and would be your best girl ever! The perfect single family pet!
