A pill made by LifeVantage Canine Health claims to prolong dogs' lives, but some veterinarians have expressed skepticism. The pill does contain some beneficial compounds such as milk thistle and omega-3 fatty acids, veterinarian Michael Woolley says, but he reminds owners there's already a safe and proven way to promote a long, quality life for pets. "Probably the biggest thing to extend a dog's life is staying lean, and staying lean throughout your life, not just doing it at the end of your life," says Dr. Woolley.
