    Breakthrough Innovation In Nutrition For Dogs 7 And Older

    (NAPSI)—There are approximately 87 million dogs in the U.S. and an estimated 44 percent of them are 7 years old and older. And since dogs are considered senior by the time they reach age 7, that’s nearly 35 million senior dogs. But many dog owners who are closely attached to their pets may not be aware—or want to believe—that their furry loved one is considered senior at age 7. According to experts at Purina Pro Plan, a dog’s brain relies on energy from glucose to thrive; however, around 7 years old, the glucose metabolism in his brain begins to change, which can affect memory, learning, awareness or decision making.

Ways To Become A Change Agent And Create Sustainable Community Health

(NAPSI)—A healthier environment for yourself—and others—may be in your hands...if, that is, your hands are on a keyboard signing up for an online community of diverse individuals and organizations united to improve the health of all Americans. “Heart disease and stroke are leading causes of death and disability in the United States, and the state of health in many multicultural communities, especially among African Americans and Latinos, is lagging behind the rest of the nation,” says Clyde Yancy, M.D. and American Heart Association/American Stroke Association volunteer. The American Heart Association—the nation’s oldest, largest volunteer—based organization—is committed to being a catalyst for change through initiatives like EmPowered To Serve. “When people join EmPowered To Serve, they have the opportunity to assess their personal health and the health of their environment, and work on an action plan to improve problem areas. The aim of the platform is for communities to achieve at least a 10 percent improvement in health, which is measured through a post-action plan assessment,” said Dr. Yancy.
