Longevity is all about toxic load. Toxic load can be explained by the amount of toxins you put in your body and how your body processes those toxins.

Feed an all natural diet
To me, diet is the key to longevity and a healthy life. What you put in is what you get out. For the beginner, avoid ingredients like wheat, soy, corn, sugar beets, by-products, and generic animal fats such as poultry fat.
For those of you who are already feeding a holistic kibble, try adding raw fruits and vegetables to your dog’s diet as well as raw meat. With any dietary change, make the transition gradually.
If you decide to feed your dog a 100% raw diet, make sure to research the proper techniques for doing so. I feed my Pugs a raw diet. Essential to every diet is a mixture of proteins. This reduces your dog’s chances of developing a sensitivity to their food. I always suggest switching proteins every 2 to 3 months.
