When Your Dog Refuses To Act Its Age

Cookie is 11 years old but you would never know it. With her spunky attitude she acts more like 6. There are over 33 million senior pets in the United States alone. With the advances in modern medicine and healthier foods, pets are living much longer. Many pet companies formulate foods for senior pooches. One of those companies is Iams.

Having five different pet foods for dogs and cats, these foods are enriched with Vitamin E and other essential nutrients for aging animals.

Show How Your Pet Won't Grow Up
