Take a day off with your dog

As crazy as it might sound and in today’s economy…taking a day off with your dog will greatly improve your quality of life. I know for those of you living up north it’s kind of hard going out because it’s really cold. However, you can still take a day off and dedicate it entirely to your canine friend. Give him/her an especial treat, and play his/her favorite game. Take him to the beach or to a park if the weather allows you to do…

Memories

Does anyone have some memories to share from your previous dogs? I’ll love to hear from you. One of my previous dog (Cookie) hated frogs & cats. He loved to wear my reading glasses & each time I wanted to grab them he turned his head. I believe Cookie thought he was human ha ha. He didn’t sit like a dog & he loved watching TV. He had his own reclining chair nobody could touch. The chair was next to a window. So… he was watching TV and looking outside at the same time. He was…

Diarrhea in Dogs

Diarrhea is a sign of intestinal disease in dogs just as in humans. Eating inappropriate food is one of the main causes of diarrhea. There are also worms, bacterial infections, viral infections, and parasites causing diarrhea in dogs. Many dog owners feel frustrated because what’s good for them might not necessarily be good for their pets.  When a diarrhea is severe you might need a solution from the vet. Your dog will lose lots of fluids & therefore dehydration is inevitable.  In any…

Can dogs eat human foods?

Onions, garlic, grapes & chocolate are bad for dogs; especially chocolate which poison becomes in their system. They are not able to absorb it. Beware of chicken bones. Salty, sweet (high in sugar content), or fatty should be avoided as well. Some dogs are allergic to some particular foods. If you see your dog vomiting or having diarrhea chances are that he is either allergic or has a stomach virus. Yes, dogs can catch a flue & pass the stomach flu. Just like humans, they pass worm,…

Dog Bronchitis: Is your doggie coughing?

Dog bronchitis usually affects small to medium-sized breeds that are over one year of age. The causes of dog bronchitis are not always known. However, researchers say that cigarette smoke and urban pollution could be one of the causes that lead to bronchitis. The overpowered immune system of a dog with frequent viral or bacterial infection is most of the time unwilling to protect the dog from such infection. Therefore symptoms such as wheezing, loss of appetite, frequent gagging and…

Your Best Companion

There have been times in my life when my dog has been my friend and only companion. At least, that’s the way I have felt. Even family and friends will never understand you as well as your dog do. I don’t think I can scientifically prove this. All I have is my life’s experiences. However, researchers have found out interesting things about how pets help you have a better quality of life. For example, spending time with your pet…

DOG POEM: TO MY DYING DOG

Vivacious, wild, and entertaining. Annoying barks, paws that touch heaven. A glowing smile that captures life. Swallowing hate, showing kindness. Strangers passing by, scanning them. Trying to communicate an unknown tongue. Only angels understand your stanzas, the messy rhymes hidden in your tongue. Signs of deteriorated health begin to show. Sunny days saying good bye, going to a much brighter light. Your eyes go dim, your voice… Continue

Ovarian Tumors in Dogs

Most of these tumors are seen in older dogs yet I think it’s very important taking care of your dog when she needs you the most. Some symptoms are loss of appetite, fever, abdominal enlargement, hair loss, and many others. You can feel some ovarian tumors by the simple touch of your hands. However, an abdominal ultrasound might be the best choice if you see the symptoms but can’t feel the tumor. Be supportive of your dog. It’s as… Continue

How is your Dog’s Social Life?

The key is to expose your pet to other pets different shapes, sizes, and colors, earlier on his/her puppy years. He will eventually get accustomed to it and chances are when he grows up he won’t be as scared or alarmed when he sees a strange creature in his surroundings. Think about it, if you, out of a sudden, see people walking around your house that don’t quite look as humans but perhaps some type of sick alien. What… Continue

What if my Dog were Super Dog

Have you ever thought about what would happen if your dog were Super Dog? He would fly in the sky, and rescue victims from Katrinas, Tsunamies, and tornadoes. He would bark at the evil and corrupt. He would grab the airplane flying into the Twin towers with his paws and place it on the ground like a toy. He would pick the noblest mate and make sure he brings her the nicest treats. He would get instant muscles without going to the gym. But what about the fame and the dangers you would face for… Continue

Dog Allergies & Allergies to Dogs

Animals have allergies as well. Every day substances such as pollen, animal dander, mold spores, etc will deprive your dog from a healthy living. The most common signs a dog will show when having an allergic reaction are face rubbing, biting, scratching, and chewing the skin. Most allergies are inherited but they can be prevented by avoiding the causes thereof. A physical examination and taking some lab tests might help.  Dogs can…

Dog Shelters

Food prices are increasing, and our climate is rapidly changing. I’m not a preacher of global warming but I hope we ever change and let compassion warm our hearts. The amount of dogs taken to the shelters each year is increasing by the millions. The excuse is not having plenty of food to feed them or lack of resources... There are very little chances for these dogs to be adopted and euthanasia is applied. Our world is changing. Dog shelters have always been there but now they are increasing.…

It can definitely shorten your pet’s life span. As much as twenty five percent of dogs and cats going to the veterinarian today are obese.

Hunting Hounds

There are different categories of hunting hounds, the sight hounds (hunt by sight), and scent hounds (hunt by scent). Some hunting dogs are good for working either on water or on land and some work on both. Dogs were able to provide men with food, clothing, and even helped out to build their rudimentary houses. Dogs were men’s best friend. I imagine, back then, the bonding between men and dogs was special since dogs helped you out on nearly everything. Nowadays we go to work and leave our…

How to bury your pet?

These are subjects most of us don’t like talking about. We think our pet’s health will never deteriorate. However, the time will come when all of us, including our pets, will have to face death. Some people  pay for their burial expenses before they die because they just hate the idea of becoming a financial burden on their families. It is sad when families ask friends for money to bury their loved ones because it’s extremely…
