Hi Friend,

Hello and Good Morning to you and all of your significant others.

Most of our older pets have some degree of arthritis- normal joint wear and tear.

3 of the better joint products include: Glucosamine, Chondroitin, and MSM.

Ultimate Canine and Ultimate Feline Health Formulas contain these and if you have a dog or cat with arthritis, it would be wise to supplement with colostrum. You can get it here:

Smuggling Dogs
------------------------------------------

The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Hong Kong) [SPCA (HK)] is deeply concerned with the reports of a growing trend in the keeping of Tibetan Mastiffs as pets, in particular, the smuggling of these dogs into Hong Kong from the Shenzhen pet market. It present issues of both public safety and animal welfare.

Tibetan mastiffs have been bred over many centuries to be a guard dog for nomadic Tibetan herdsmen and their livestock – the traits selected for over the centuries make this dog generally not suitable for being kept as a pet in Hong Kong with its densely populated urban environment where most people live in small high rise apartments.

"The dogs have been bred over the years to be guardians and defensive against strangers (both animals and humans) and can be unpredictable and aggressive which when combined with their size can make them a risk to public and animal health if problems develop," says Dr. Fiona Woodhouse, Deputy Director, Welfare Services at the SPCA (HK). "They are also a relatively primitive breed, retaining some pack behaviours. This means that this breed has certain characteristics that if owned by someone without the knowledge, experience and skills in terms of dog psychology, behaviour and training, is at risk of developing severe behavioural problems."

"The size of this breed of dog alone is utterly not suitable for Hong Kong where space is a big problem. It is cruel to have these dogs continually confined or kept small cages – something we encounter frequently." says Tony Ho, SPCA's Chief Officer Inspectorate.

Best Wishes,

P.S. Clearly this is about status, and not at all about responsible pet ownership. In one recent story,  $1.5 million paid for world’s most expensive dog. An 11-month-old Tibetan mastiff ‘Big Splash’ drew massive price in eastern China.

They have become status symbols among China’s growing wealthy classes, driving up their price from a few hundred dollars to hundreds of thousands.

If the wealthy have all this cash, then why not impose LARGE fines- and send and large percentage to groups such as the SPCA..



P.P.S. This is a breed which doesn't live long, and often develops arthritis- along with a number of other diseases.

I wouldn't advise most people to get one- unless you live in a cooler climate, and you have livestock to protect..

What I do advize is that your meiddle aged to older pets are put on a supplement which can help support the joints for arthritis.

Just ensure that there are adequate levels of the nutrients, and in the right combination. I have found that Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM in combination work well- with the doses being 500mg Glucosamine/50lbs, 250mg Chondroitin per 50lbs and 250mg of MSM per 50lbs.

These levels are in my supplements.
