Everyday foods like bacon, eggs, coffee and dairy products are linked to inflammation. That might not sound like a big deal but when you consider that most chronic conditions like cancer, arthritis, diabetes, and obesity have been linked to inflammation. Low grade inflammation is a factor in most health issues. And if you suffer a pain disorder, you better believe that inflammatory foods will aggravate the condition.
Editor's Note from Beth Wisniewski: Most chronic diseases and pain are a result of low grade inflammation in the body. This article from Care2, lists the top 12 foods that cause inflammation.

How do we help our best friends live with quality and dignity while inside we're worried to bits about "what's next?" As veterinarians, and more so as holistic vets where we care for the whole package, we help our patients' families get through these hard times. Dr B has great insight.
