Cares with ticks

Filed under: Animal news — Tags: , , , , , — Cynara @ 9:29 am

dogThe ticks affect the dogs much more than the cats because these tend to remove them when they clean, unless they don’t get to reach them. The ticks stay in the skin of the animal per days, while they suck his blood. 
 
In the body of the animal, the parts with few hair and hard of reaching, as the ears, the armpits and among the fingers, are the favorite objectives of the ticks, but they can be found in any other place. Most of the time, the animal not even it will feel the bite, they hardly ever infect. 
 
The ticks carry their minuscule own parasites (protozoa and bacteria), that can cause very serious diseases in animals and human beings, once they penetrate in the sanguine current. 
 
It is for that is so important to remove the ticks as soon as possible. The retreat of the tick can be made with the topical application of ticks´s products or manually. In the manual retreat, don’t use the fingers to remove him, use a tweezers with round tips. Put discards gloves and be careful for not squeezing the body of the tick when it removes him, so that there is not contamination. Catch the very close body to the skin and the buccal pieces of the tick and pull him outside, in line straight, slow and smoothly, that will do with that the buccal pieces come unfastened more easily. 
 
Don’t worry the head to come unfastened and to be file in the skin, that hardly ever happens, but if it happens, it should not cause problems for most of the animals. 
 
Play the tick in a jug with alcohol, or inside of the toilet and give discharge. 
 
Wash the place of the bite with antiseptic soap liquid. Apply an antibiotic ointment.

Human medicines: to use or not to use?

Filed under: Animal news — Tags: , , , , , — Cynara @ 9:42 am

drugsThe veterinary medicines, servants for dogs and cats, act with a lot of speed. Usually they have flavors that help to be swallowed with more easiness and their formulas come in several concentrations, so that they can satisfy as much the needs of nestlings as of adults and small and big loads. 
 
Some human medicines are dangerous when administered in animals. However, as many human medicines contain the same active ingredients of the versions for animals, a lot of times you can relieve the symptoms of the animal with a ready service, but it is necessary to know which medicines to use and which the dosage. 
 
Hardly ever the animals should receive the same dosage that a person. Their organisms work in way different from the one of the humans and them don’t metabolize drugs in the same way. The dose for animals is based usually in their corporal weight, therefore it is necessary to know as they weigh for then can medicate them. The medicines liquids are easier to adjust the dose.

What is and how to avoid the rabies

Filed under: Animal news — Tags: , , , , , , — Cynara @ 11:06 am

dogDo you really know rabies is? Do you know like it is transmitted? Which the symptoms? 
 
The rabies is a acute infectious disease that attacks the mammals (man and animals), caused by a virus that multiplies and spreads (outlying nerves) until the central nervous system, from where passes for the glands salivate, in which also multiplies. 
 
The form more common of transmission it is through the contact with the saliva of the stricken animal, be through bite or lambida. The scratches also have potential of contamination, due to the intense salivation of the sick animals. 
 
The infection source is the animal infected with the virus of rabies. In urban areas, it is mainly the dog (almost 85% of the cases) following for the cats. In rural areas, besides the dogs and cats, bats, monkeys, bovine, equine, bovid, ovinos. The wild animals are the natural reservoirs for domestic animals. 
 
The transmission feels before the emergence of the symptoms and during the period of the disease. In the dog and in the cat this period begins from 5 to 3 days before the emergence of the symptoms. 
 
In the animals the disease present 2 forms: the furious and the paralytic. The furious is characterized by inquietude, tendency to the attack, anorexia, later coma and death. In the paralytic the animal tends isolates and to hide at dark places, it presents paralysis in the back paws that it takes the death. 
 
To prevent it is necessary the annual vaccination. With the lack of the vaccine, take some cares: don’t leave your animal to have contact with unknown animals and don’t leave him free in the street.

It increases the force and improvement all the corporal condition, besides being a good one relaxing. 
 
The walks can also help a lot when respected the limits of the animal and his physical condition. A check up is useful to evaluate the conditions of the organism of the animal. Besides maintaining the muscles and articulations strengthened, the walk also helps to maintain the weight, that for some animals is a problem. Small walks will do with that the animal relieves the stress and train. 
 
Remember, senior animals can have problems in controlling the urine, the feces and in feeding and they can need cares. For dogs that cannot train, massage sessions can help them the if they maintain relaxed.
