Now that the snow is gone and we can be outside with the dogs, I am amazed at how well Duchess, my 9 year old German Shepherd, is doing. She is still quicker and faster than her 4 year old sister, Ziva. We have many deer where we live and occasionally they get in the yard. So one of the games we play is to have the dogs chase the deer away. She can still keep up with the deer- can’t quite catch them, which is good. Many working dogs are retired at 8 or 9 years of age. It appears that years of preparing food for her is paying off. Of course, the supplements she is getting probably also help. In addition to a multiple vitamin- Nutrient 950 without Iron by Pure Encapsulations, she is getting DHEA and pregnenolone for adrenal support and MItochondrial ATP to support energy production.
