A HEALTHY DOG IS A MIGHTY® DOG

Despite their small stature, Mighty Dogs can have Mighty Appetites. And as we know, many small-dog owners like to share people food with their dogs. There are many foods that shouldn’t be shared, and in general, it’s best to avoid people food all together – especially some examples including chocolate, coffee, grapes and mushrooms, just to name a few. So keep those things off the menu and help keep your Mighty dog, well Mighty.
#2

AN ACTIVE SMALL DOG IS A HEALTHY SMALL DOG

Chances are your Mighty® little dog has more energy than you do. And if left un-indulged, that energy can show up in some unpleasant ways (like a chewed-up pair of shoes or mangled remote control). But it’s easy as playing a daily game of fetch or going for a jog to help satisfy your small dog’s Mighty desire to be active. Plus it helps your Mighty friend stay healthy.
#3

KEEPING YOUR MIGHTY® DOG COOL

Even though small dogs dissipate heat much faster than their larger cousins, they can still be susceptible to heatstroke. So if your small dog has a Mighty® appetite for the outdoor fun in the summer, always keep plenty of shade and water (for drinking and splashing) to help keep him or her cool. Plus a bit of water can even make playtime more fun for your Mighty little pal. But remember, you should also limit the amount of time your small dog spends outside in extreme heat conditions.

PREVENTING HEARTWORM

Preventing heartworm disease is more affordable and safe for your dog than treating the disease once it’s taken hold. Luckily for most dogs, prevention is as simple as giving your dog one heartworm pill a month. So mark your calendars and make it part of your routine so your Mighty® little dog can keep being Mighty.

PICKING THE RIGHT BED

When shopping for a dog bed, remember that one size does not fit all. When they sleep, most small dogs like to burrow in and then get nice and cozy. So, according to ehow.com, the best choice for small dogs is small, round, pillow-type beds. These types of beds come in a variety of colors and materials to match any décor.
