Last month we discussed the role of supplements, such as glucosamine/chondroitin and Adequan, in the treatment of canine arthritis. Recall that treatment of arthritis is multimodal, meaning that the best therapy plan uses several different types of treatment. A number of medications and therapies can be used in combination with nutritional support to achieve maximal comfort and mobility for your dog.  With any medication it is important to follow your veterinarian’s directions... >>more

Twice a week for an hour a small group of students from Wards 7 and 8 get a chance to explore the arts – performance, music, visual, and more. Deonte Smith is one of them, a veteran of the Anacostia Gracious Arts Program (AGAP). Growing up in a part of DC that people often write off as dangerous, he has thrived in the program to develop his skills as a dancer and vocalist. “AGAP helped me a lot with my character,” he said. “As I got older, I was able to teach younger... >>more
