New Year’s Day is the perfect time to make firm resolutions to catch up on all the things you’ve been putting off – including your pet’s needs. Here are a few resolutions from Maura Davies, VP of Communications at the SPCA that you can make to improve your pet’s well-being!

The AHA, 2018, and the F Word
Forty-one years ago the US government, at your behest, brought us the national fat and saturated fat guidelines:
- No more than 30% of our diet from fat
- Absolutely no more than 10% of that from saturated fat.
So, not only have you refused to recognize what the science has shown, you’ve doubled down by telling us we must consume even less than the previously ill-advised 10% saturated fat. You’ve slammed plant-based sources of medium chain fatty acids like coconut oil simply because they are saturated. And you based it on a handful of studies, the most recent of which was over 30 years old. Dr. Mike Fenster gives us more information on this study.

Shawn Wells talks about collagen, what it does in the body, and is it worth supplementing with?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. Collagen is primarily located in connective and bone tissues. A decrease in collagen production can create a variety of health defects, whereas supplementing with additional collagen can help treat a variety of structural conditions.
