Insurance for dogs
In Berlin it is a requirement for dog owners to register their dogs, pay dog tax, have dog liability insurance (Hundehaftpflichtversicherung in German) and have their dog microchipped for identification.

Nutrition for dogs
Futalis pet food is based on a veterinary medical concept that puts emphasis on the health of cats and dogs and calculates the exact amount of food that a pet needs for a daily optimal nutrient supply.

The website is in German but should you be interested in trying Futalis I’ll be more than happy to help you in calculating the optimal nutrition for your dog or cat.
