Dear Dogster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Dogster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Dogster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Dogster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.


Diabetic Dog

My friend has a diabetic dog and she is searching for a good holistic dog food. The vet has recommened w/d prescription from Science Diet, but she does not want to feed her dog that food. Her dog is a 10 yr old Shihtzu and is overweight as well. Does anyone have any advice on a good dog food?

    Science Diet is terrible. She must know all the bad things about SD. It made my pup gray at 2 years. Once I changed his diet he lost the gray muzzle. Iv had many pups tell me the same story.
