A dog’s teeth represent a handy set of tools with all sorts of applications: pincers, a knife, scissors, a weight carrier, shredder, lever and weapon all in one. A true miracle of nature, which once ensured the survival of the wild predators that are the ancestors of today’s dogs.
Survival is less of an issue these days, but a dog nonetheless relies greatly on its teeth: breaking food into smaller pieces, gnawing and playing all depend on a dog having great teeth. That’s why dental care is just as important for dogs as it is for us. But what exactly does this involve? Is it necessary to clean your dog’s teeth? And what role does food play in canine dental hygiene? In this guide, we want to really get our teeth stuck into these issues.
There is nothing unusual about a dog having an occasional scratch. We humans do the same too! Scratching and gnawing are part of your pet’s personal hygiene routine and can help reduce stress. However, if your dog scratches continuously for a long period (maybe even until the skin is bare and bleeding), it is essential to investigate the cause.Continue reading

Cats are naturally rather fussy and have discerning culinary tastes. It’s not unusual for them to leave a meal uneaten if it is not completely fresh and served at the right temperature in their favourite bowl. Despite high expectations when it comes to food, sometimes your cat’s curiosity will get the better of them. Whether it is houseplants, leftover kitchenwaste or tasty treats offered by owners with the best of intentions – certain foods should be off limits for cats. Let us answer the question: What can cats not eat?

Here you will find important information about grains for dogs.
Food intolerances in dogs and cats are a common problem that is growing in frequency. Often the cause is animal protein – in other words, your pet is reacting to the meat contained in its food. What's more, the meat content is not exactly helping to lower your cat or dog's CO2 paw print and is harmful for our climate.
Vegetarian dog food? Sure thing! We are doing away with the dangerous half-truth that a dog needs meat. While our four-legged friends are descended from wolves, centuries spent alongside people has had an effect - above all in the dog's digestive tract. Of course, our furry-nosed friends still need protein, fats, carbohydrates, minerals and vitamins – but they doesn't necessarily have to come from animal sources. There is no problem for a modern dog to get the nutrition they need from plant-based food.continue reading
