SAFE CAR RIDE Essentials

 

I saw a lot of dogs just hanging out of the cars’ windows, truck beds with the opportunity to jump any time they wish or when frightened from something, not mentioning the heat they have to deal with on their paws touching the hot surface & their fur or a case of a real car crash.

I felt desperate need to dig, collect & share the info here, to make sure you can check it out and make a decision with more info in your hands for your furry friend’s safety to live a long life, together.

I was totally shocked about how challenging it is to find a proved to be SAFE harness for your dog out there.

I looked around also on You Tube and I saw huge amount of crash test dog dummies falling, flying, breaking their neck or their whole spine. They have really graphic videos out there (with dummies), but not all are as professional and as detailed as this one below.

 

 How to determine the effectiveness of your dog safety harness?

 

Sleepypod.com‘s Store, where you can get huge amount of info & all your dog’s needs for safe travel.

I hope you enjoyed this post, feel free to share your comment below! :)

Non-Toxic Parasite Control – what tastes good :)

Dear Dog Lover Friend, :)

Have you ever wondered about a non-toxic, extremely easy to use, what is even extremely affordable (about $10-$15) however perfectly effective parasite control for your beloved one? Included humans? Yep, that’s right, periodically, we need that also.

We just started our session together with our puppy, all the family gets it, from my husband, through me and doggy and kitties. And we just enjoy it. :)

Below, you can find the product I use: it’s called Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth. Sounds funky, huh? But tastes good. :) So much easier to use than garlic!! :) And tastes & smells way better also. :) )

Does NOT harm neither adult/pregnant humans or pets, nor kids or really young animals. You don’t have to use gloves or mess with toxic staff and to be prepared for the end of the Earth in case it gets on you. It’s actually healthy. :) How cool is that? :)

We mix it with kefir, but it can be mixed with water, yogurt, whatever you prefer.

So here is the practical magic: Continue reading

Natural approach to treatment of eye infections

By Dr. Peter Dobias

” Eye discharges are one of the most common problems. Whenever I see my clients with concerns about their dogs or cats eyes, the first question I ask is what they’re concerned about the most. Most people reply that they’re concerned about infection and their worries make me realize that I need to write a blog to clarify some of these misconceptions.

First, I’m not planning to rediscover the universe here, neither am I eager to make things more complex because I do not need a PhD. What I would like to do today is to bring more clarity into what you may call conjunctivitis, eye discharges, redness or an eye infection.

Is your dog a drama queen or cool dude?

THOUGHTS ON THE CONNECTIONS BETWEEN DISEASE AND EMOTIONS

When I was asked to write an article for this issue with a focus on animal behavior, I noticed a hint of  resistance.  I didn’t even know what I would write about.  However, it took only a few minutes for a whole “filmstrip” of ideas to appear in front of me.This article is a mosaic of some of the most interesting observations I have made in more than twenty years of being a vet.

Not that long ago, one of my readers called me irresponsible because I was suggesting that older dogs should exercise regularly. I was surprised about such a reaction. After a brief inquiry, I learned that it was the reader’s veterinary surgeon who discouraged her from exercising her senior.

SARDINES MAY BE CONTAMINATED WITH RADIOACTIVE STRONTIUM FROM FUKUSHIMA

By Dr. Peter Dobias

 

 

” This month, I have had two dogs (patients) that had severely elevated levels of the element Strontium. The interesting part is that these two dogs were fed high amount of sardines and highly suspect that strontium may be coming from this source.

Strontium acts in the body the same way as calcium and it deposits in bones. Sardines and other small fish are eaten whole with the bones and that is why they are more likely source of this toxic element.

The reason why I am concerned is that the radioactive isotope Strontium 90 is a toxic carcinogen and it has been released in the Japan’s  Fukushima disaster.

Urinary Incontinence in dogs – natural treatment PART 3

By Dr. Peter Dobias

” Practical treatment suggestion to drug free treatment

heartworm
If you have not read PART 1 and PART 2 of the Urinary Incontinence in dog’s series, please [CLICK HERE] before reading the following lines.If you have read PART 1 and 2, you already know that:

  • a large number of incontinent dogs leak urine because of injuries or lumbar sacral area and reduced nerve supply to the bladder sphincter.
  • it is important not to stretch dogs on the surgical table when they get spayed or neutered because it can lead to lumbar-sacral subluxations (injuries) and incontinence.

If your dog is incontinent and your intention is not to use conventional drugs read on.

____________________

First, you need to rule out the following problems that can lead to urine leaking:

  • Urinary tract infection by running a urine sample test and possibly a culture.
  • Polyp or growth that can impede the function of the bladder sphincter.
  • Ectopic ureter that attaches to the bladder in an anatomically incorrect location
  • Urinary bladder stones which can cause inflammation, irritation and incontinence.
  • Excitement or submissive urination – this is a behavioral issue and has to do nothing with true urinary incontinence.
  • Sometimes hyperactive adrenal glands or the administration of corticosteroids can also cause incontinence.

Every incontinent dog should go through the following:

    • Physical examination
    • Blood test – chemistry, complete blood count and thyroid test.
    • Urinalysis to evaluate kidney function

NO RISK 100% money back guarantee

Generally, it is very rare that a dog doesn’t respond to the above mentioned protocol. However, no treatment works for every patient. INCONTIA  comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.  All you need to do is to contact us to make arrangments. If you dog doesn’t respond, ask your veterinarian to perform further examination such as bladder ultrasound to rule out other possible problems. If all tests come back normal and you have treated your dog for 3 – 9 months without any change, it is possible that your dog will need estrogen medication such as Stilbestrol or Proin. I personally prefer Stilbestrol.
