Remove the shampoo with water, don’t leave residues. Dry the animal with a towel to remove the excess of water, later use a hair dryer in the lukewarm temperature, maintain the dryer at a distance of 20 cm of the animal to avoid burns. The hair should be dry. 
4 - use a soft brush to brush him every 3 days and to remove the dead hair. 
If the animal long hair: 
5 – before wetting the animal you put cotton in the ear to avoid the entrance of water and a possible otitis.   Use lukewarm water.

Race X Behavior

Filed under: Dogs care — Tags: , , , , , — Cynara @ 9:39 am

Will it be possible the behavior characteristic, how the aggressiveness, be transmitted for the following generation? 
In the same way that morphologic characteristics can be inherited of last generations, neurophysiological characteristics also can. Therefore, the genetic predisposition for several behavior problems can justify a possible association between aggressiveness and race of the dog. 
Such relationship can be justified with differences in the neurotransmitter levels or in the efficiency of their receivers in the Central Nervous System, favoring, or no, the appearance of problems as aggressiveness or anxiety. 
Some goods associate structural alterations in the brains of aggressive dogs and no aggressive. For instance, there is an increase of the number of receivers for androgenic in the tonsil in aggressive male dogs compared the no aggressive. There is also increase in the number of receivers in the front cortex, hippocampus and thalamu of the aggressive dogs compared to the no aggressive, etc. 
Those aspects, among other, they could find the favorable arguments to the association between race and aggressiveness, however it is not still possible to answer to the question a direct association there are been between aggressiveness and race.

Are your animal allergic?

Filed under: You knew that... — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , — Cynara @ 5:39 pm

dogThe alimentary allergies can affect any dog or cat, but they are not so common. 
The animal usually resists the protein in the food, as milk or meat. The most typical reaction in dogs is an itch dispersing for the body, while the cats develop itches in the area of the face and head. With less frequency, the reaction is vomit or diarrhea. 
In some cases, the animal develops a more serious allergic reaction to the food and edemas appear. The edemas usually appear in 20 to 60 minutes, around the eyes and of the nose. 
If the animal is with a very strong reaction, you will usually notice breathing problems, could take to a breathing stop. It is treated of an emergency and the animal should be taken to the veterinarian immediately. 
The allergic reaction to feed can be controlled easily once discovered and avoided the responsible ingredient by the allergy. 
The process of elimination of foods indicates which of them exactly causes problems. That means to do with that the animal eats a diet that never ate before. After the skin of the animal is normal, increase to the diet the suspicious foods, one of every time to discover which provokes the allergy of them.

Filed under: You knew that... — Tags: , , , , , , , , — Cynara @ 3:34 pm

dogWhen we thought about First Aid for domestic animals, we limited ourselves to emergencies, as a running over, or a shock, etc. However, all of the owners of animals come across daily problems, as infections in the ear, cuts in the paws or digestive problems. 
Frequently, you will discover that the techniques of First Aid are useful. Those basic techniques are for hundreds of situations involving dogs and cats. 
And what is more important, in situations really dramatic, they can save the life of your animal. 
The contention of the animal has 3 purposes: it protects the person of being bitten by the animal; it restricts the movements of the animal, impeding that the bruise worsens and it does with that the animal is stopped to be examined and practiced medicine. 
The cardiopulmonary resuscitation combines the artificial breathing with the compression expresses of the heart, what helps to move the blood for the body, when the heart for of beating. 
Whenever the skin breaks up, bacteria or any other strange material, even the hair can contaminate the wound and potentially to cause infection. The bleedind is a mechanism of natural cleaning, that it helps to eliminate the dangerous substance. Don’t clean wounds with abundant bleeding, because that will just do with that they bleed more.

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.

dogNothing is more important than the prevention and the life of your animal. Vitamin supplements and alternative therapies are popular and common in the treatment of conditions, as the arthritis, common in senior dogs, but we cannot forget about the exercises. 
The swimming is an excellent exercise for dogs of all of the ages, but especially good for senior dogs because they are of low impact and appropriate for the weakness of the muscles and articulations. 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.

The laser in the treatment of tendon problems

Filed under: Animal news — Tags: , , , , , — Cynara @ 10:39 am

therapeutic laser

The treatment of tendon problems with Laser (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emisison of Radiotion) has been reaching great results in short space of time. 
The therapeutic laser emits, at the most, 1 mW of energy, therefore, their effects are biomodulate and no thermal. 
The laser increases: 
* the sanguine circulation, 
* activity of the lymphatic system, 
* synthesis of DNA and RNA, 
* amount of fibroblast, 

* levels of oxide nítric 
and it decreases: 
* speed of transport of the sensorial nerve, 
* it reduces the excitability of the receivers of the pain, 
* it stimulates the production of collagen, 
* it stimulates the phagocytosis, 
* it stimulates the liberation of ATP, 
* it stimulates the osteoblast. 
The tendons almost consist that entirely in bunches of collagen in regular arrangement and they possess great tensive force. 
As the laser stimulates the production of collagen, has anti-inflammatory action and it acts in the pain. The reached results have been satisfactory and fast. The lesions in the tendons close, therefore collagen is produced filling out the lesion. 
In big lesions, it can be used the technique of transplant of stem cells and the laser sections. It has been obtaining results in 1 month of treatment.

Say no to the tests in animals

Filed under: Animal news — Tags: , , , , , , , — Cynara @ 8:00 am

testes em animaisSome companies use dogs, cats, monkeys, mice… to test their products before putting them in the market. 

The animals are forced to ingest and to inhale chemical products; they are flung against concrete walls; it is made application of products in their eyes; they have their extracted gums and their pulled teeth; they are submitted to the radiation of biological chemical weapons; they have their pulled hair and his skin removed for application of products; they are exposed to poisonous gases and shot in the head and they are still dissected alive. 

Exists efficient alternatives that substitute the tests in animals. 

Companies that don’t make tests in animals, try to use the products of those companies:

Abelha Rainha, Adcos, Afro Nature, Ag Fragrâncias, Água de Cheiro, Akla, Allumé/Sunshine, All Vida, Amend, Anaconda, Anantha, Antídoto, Atelier do Banho, Atol, Avora, Bio Extratus, Bio Manthus, Bionatus, Búfalo, Buonavita, Bonyplus, Cadiveu, Cassiopéia, Class, Clorofitum, Coferly, Condor, Contem 1g, Contente, Copra, Cosmética, Cosinter, Davene, Driss, Dr. Tozzi, Ecologie, Éh Cosméticos, Embelleze, Esthetic, Extrato da Amazônia/Natuphitus, Extratophlora, Farmaervas, Florestas, Fri Dog, Gotas Verdes, Granado, Guabi, Impala, Koloss, Korai, Lavalma, L´aqua di Fiori, Leite de Rosas, Ludovig, Mahogany, Master Line, Max Love, Nasha, Natura, Natustrato, Nazca, Niasi, O Boticário, OX, Prolev, Rahda, Racco, Reserva Folio, Sabão Mauá, Sensória, Shizen, Surya Henna, Terractiva, Unisoap, Valmari, Vita-a, Vita Derm, Vitalabor, Yamá, Ypê, Weleda do Brasil, Abercrombie & Fitch, Ahava, American Safety Razor, Amitée, Amway, Avalon Natural Products, Avon, Carlson Laboratories, Chanel, Clarins of Paris, Clinique Labs, Ecover, Estée Lauder, Herbalife, L´anza, Lush, M.A.C., Norelco, Payot, Revlon, St. Ives, The Body Shop, Victoria Secrets.

If those companies don’t use animals for tests, why the another need to use?    

If you are also against the cruelty against animals, can you help, how? It is simple: 

1 – say no to the products tested in animals 
2 – become aware the people not to use products tested in animals 
3 - motivate to the adoption of substitutive methods 
4 - denounces, mistreatments to the animals are crime 
5 - publishe this Post so that other people have access the that information

Why does your dog bury her treats or toys?

Filed under: Dogs care — Tags: , , , , , , — Cynara @ 8:00 am

cãoDoes your dog often bury her bones, treats or even her toys in your backyard? Ever find a bone under the pillow on your bed or behind the sofa cushions? Or does she attempt to “faux bury” her cookies in the corner of the carpet like my dog Natasha, to the point of creating a raw spot on the top her nose?

Most behaviors dogs practice today are rooted in their ancient, developmental history. In the early days of canines, food wasn’t always plentiful. After a successful hunt, a dog would bury whatever he didn’t consume to keep it from scavengers and even other members of her pack. When she became hungry again or prey was sparse, she would return to her “stash” to consume the leftovers.

Sometimes the problem was that the hunt was so successful there was too much food to be consumed at one meal. An ancestral urge led the dogs to bury their food for leaner times. The dirt also helped keep the food fresher by keeping it from direct sunlight.

You might wonder why your dog still practices this behavior when you deliver her kibble to her food bowl every day! Old habits die hard and even our domesticated canines still experience the natural instinct to hoard. In fact, many species in the animal kingdom regularly practice hoarding behaviors. Squirrels hide acorns, leopards hang their kill from trees for later consumption, and even humans stock their pantry with canned goods and non-perishables.

Your dog’s modified hoarding instinct is normal. But if her burying urge becomes obsessive, try to limit her toys and treats to one or two items. After all, she can only play with one toy and chew one bone at a time. Make sure she’s getting plenty of daily exercise and structured activities throughout the day to keep him healthy, happy, stimulated, and balanced! by Cheri Lucas
