Wheelbarrow Test The pup was placed in a wheelbarrow, or, for the first few pups, in a wagon. The wagon didn’t work very well so they switched to only using the wheelbarrow. One tester walked backwards in front or to the side to keep the pup from jumping out, while the other wheeled it around the room, going both forward and backwards.

The NuVet people had tried to recruit me for their breeder program for several years but it wasn’t until I was getting frustrated at my inability to get a soft, shiny coat on Quasi that I decided to try their products.

They sent a free two-month supply and at the end of the trial period I was seeing enough improvement that I signed up for their breeder program.   [READ MORE]
