What dog myths are you guilty of believing about your pooch? If you think it's okay to leave your doggy in the car, feel it's okay not to give your pooch heartworm protection because she's indoors all the time and that your dog's mouth is cleaner than yours, then you're wrong. All three “beliefs” we just mentioned are myths!

Don't feel bad, there are many myths that humans believe about themselves too, and they have no idea they're inaccurate. Currently, you may hold true quite a few “facts” about your pet but that's just because you didn't know they were myths until now!

For example, leaving your pooch in the car is not only dangerous for your dog (it doesn't matter what temp it is), but in many states it's illegal. For every ten minutes, you are away from your car the temps will continue to rise, which puts your doggy in danger of overheating or worse, dying.

On the next page, read up on some important myths that you may be guilty of believing. It's time to debunk these myths once and for all!
