    Helping "Older" Companion Animals - And Exciting Announcement

    in Self Help

    The facts of life are that we are all getting "older" and that includes our companimals (companion animals.)  Some of us are buying into beliefs of what to expect with aging animals.  Yet there is a way to reverse those beliefs and help our companimals avoid some "aging" pitfalls that we thought were unavoidable.

    Are you worried about how to care for them and what may develop?  Maybe you've been told that because your cat, dog, horse, etc., is "older" that you should expect certain issues.  What if that doesn't have to be true?

    Join Susanne Peach, Animaleze® founder, as she discusses her groundbreaking work in helping animals live longer, happier, healthier lives.  She'll share success stories and offer suggestions and ideas that can change how we look at "aging" animals.   She has an almost 14-year-old Australian Shepherd mix dog who's been helping her become a pioneer in living and working with more "mature" animals.

    Susanne wants you to be a pioneer, as well.  Changing how everyone views "mature" animals, breaking all limitations, and preconceived notions of what's expected when your hamster, llama, parrot, etc., reach a certain age.

    If you have a younger companimal, tune in as you'll hear tips to help them, too.  

    (Some of the animals pictured here are 15 and 16.)

    Susanne is also going to be announcing some big news on some upcoming, first-time-ever events catered to you, the animal lover.

    If You Keep Moving, You'll Keep Improving

    in Fun

    Today is the 22nd annual National Senior Health and Fitness Day.and the theme for this year's activities is, "If you keep moving, you'll keep improviing." 

    That's a theme that's been consistant with this show from when we started here on Blog Talk Radio seven years ago. It's always been my major goal to provide encouragement to boomers and above to stay active or to get active if for some reason you haven't been in a while. There are so many things you can do and new ones coming along all the time.

    Just last month we had a National Masters Swim competition here in San Antonio. As a volunteer with the San Antonio Sports Foundation I took part in the event and it was so encouraging to see things like one heat between three men that were all in their ninties. What have you got planned for your 90's?

    On today's show I'll give you an overview of activities and how to get started. If you've got a question, the listener line 347-934-0549 is available and I'll do my best to help you.
