According to a recent study, “in the United States, 75% of caffeine consumption is coffee, amounting to 40 million cups of coffee per day.” The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee stated that drinking 3 to 5 cups of coffee was okay as long as it was without cream, milk or added sugar. Some studies have found that coffee is rich in polyphenols that may reduce heart disease, dementia, and stroke. For more information on coffee, visit http://buff.ly/2rYeFSo.

Compared to oral medications, advantages of topical pain therapy include being able to apply the medication directly to the problem area to provide a higher amount of drug where it is needed and faster onset of action. Lower systemic drug levels mean fewer side effects and drug interactions, and a substantially reduced risk of dependency or abuse. Our compounding pharmacist can combine multiple medications into one preparation for synergistic benefits. Contact our pharmacy today to see how we can work with your doctor and help manage your pain.

Just like people, running isn’t for every dog. Running with your dog has many benefits, such as keeping you motivated to regularly exercise with your pup, and it creates a great bonding experience. But, there are some things to consider before taking your dog out for a run. Are you running on hot concrete or asphalt? Does your dog have long, thick fur? Is he short-nosed? Visit http://buff.ly/2rIH8Me for more information on how to keep your dog safe when running in warm or cold weather.
