How to CARE for man's best friend


Recommended Posts

Are you avoiding nail trims because you're scared of hurting your dog? Here's how to cut your dog's nails at home without causing them pain.




Why Dogs Need To Have Their Nails Clipped

Each time you hear your dog’s nails click on the hardwood floor or the concrete when he walks, he’s pushing his nails against the nail beds, which is, of course, painful.

If he keeps doing it, odds are he’ll readjust his whole posture to make it hurt less, which can result in back and joint problems, among others

A serious problem has been identified: dogs have become infected with lungworm disease. A study conducted by the University of Liège has shown that 1 in 20 dogs in Belgium has been contaminated by a disease that is transferred by snails. We don’t know much more about where this disease comes from and in what other places it can be found. What we do know, though, is that lungworms were first found in France but are now being found in more and more countries like England, Germany, Denmark, Switzerland and the Netherlands.


Many dog owners (and even vets!) are unfamiliar with lungworm. Yet your dog can get very ill if it drinks water in which these lungworms live. But snails can also be the culprits. Some snails carry the larvae of these lungworms and some dogs, in turn, eat snails

Small dogs can travel in the cabin for a one-way fee, collected at check-in. They must be able to fit in a small, ventilated pet carrier that fits under the seat in front of you. Pets in cabin kennels will count as your one carry-on item.

Sorry I've never done this before so I'm not able to help you.

Puppy Vaccinations: When to Get Them and Why


In their first year of life, puppies will need to visit their veterinarian numerous times to get vaccinated for and become immunized against potentially fatal, yet preventable infectious diseases. The worst of these are Distemper and Parvo.


The timing and interval between booster vaccinations is critical to ensure your puppy is protected, as their mother’s antibodies can interfere with a vaccination’s ability to mount your puppy’s own immune response. Thus, puppies need a series of vaccinations to allow their immune system to “break through” waning maternal antibody.

How to get rid of worms in puppies

Although you can buy products for worming puppies, it’s always best to take them to the vet. This way you can also make sure that it isn’t another illness causing the symptoms rather than worm infestation.


Take a fecal sample along as well. The vet can put this sample under a microscope and look for worms and eggs. Other tests include the fecal float, in which the sample is placed in a special solution causing worm eggs to float to the top.

Not all worm infestations are obvious from a fecal sample. Tapeworm segments are only shed intermittently. Female whipworms lay eggs periodically.

Once your vet knows what types of worms are lurking inside your puppy, they can prescribe the right medicine and dosage for worming puppies.
