Dog Stairs for Toy Poodles

91Ze_IpHTgL.jpg/

Small dogs like the Toy Poodle often have a hard time getting up and down furniture and beds due to their little legs and small size. Some may even have difficulty due to age or health conditions such as arthritis or hip and joint pain. If this sounds like your little guy then you may want to look into doggy stairs. Doggy stairs are sturdy stairs that are made for our canine companions in order to make everyday tasks a lot easier and gentler on the backend and legs. The stairs come in plastic, hard rubber, and even wood. Make sure you read on the box to find out if the stairs will support your dog’s weight. Check to make sure the stairs are supported well too. Some stairs are flimsy and won’t hold even a small dog’s weight. For more information visit the vet Livonia, MI.


Getting Rid of your Brittany’s Skunk Smell

If you own a Brittany then chances are you’ve experienced the dreaded skunk smell that sticks to your dog’s coat after a run through the woods or on the trails. Brittany pups love to run, hunt, and jump in and out of all kinds of shrubbery. Sometimes they jump in and run out covered in skunk fumes. Have you tried home remedies to rid the smell? Some owners bathe their dogs in tomato juice, spray him with citrus scented dog deodorizer, or use harsh smelling perfumes to cover up the stench. If that’s not working for you then try a home remedy mix of 1 quart of 3% hydrogen peroxide, 1/4 cup of baking soda, and 1 teaspoon of vet approved liquid soap. Soak your Brittany in water and then work the mix into a thick lather. Rinse your dog after 3 to 5 minutes. Run this method by your veterinary clinic Livonia, MI first.

Creating a backyard for your dog

Creating a backyard for your dog

Your dog is a big part of your life, and making sure you are there for her is an important part of your daily activities. This includes making sure her living space offers her a suitable way to meet her needs. How can you make sure your backyard does this?

Your backyard is a place that your pet likely spends a lot of time. It’s where she enjoys herself when she wants some fresh air and a change of scenery. You will need to understand that everything in your yard will be thoroughly inspected by your pet, so hazardous items should be removed from his reach. Be sure to keep him safely contained within this space, and to offer a place to get out of the elements, like a dog house. For additional information, please contact your local Savannah, GA veterinarian.

Managing your Bulldog’s Hypothyroidism

Did you know that Thyroid Hormone Deficiency (or Hypothyroidism) is a condition that happens when there is a low production and release of the T4 and T3 hormones in the thyroid gland? This condition is commonly known to occur in humans, but it can also happen in dogs like your bulldog. Symptoms of Hypothyroidism may include lethargy, mental dullness, weakness, weight gain and hair loss among other things. Depending on your bulldog’s symptoms and other medical conditions, he may be treated with synthetic hormones along with medication. Some vets recommend a change in diet to reduce fat intake as well. There is a possibility that with time your bulldog will require less medication and hormone therapy, but long-term care differs from dog to dog. Never adjust your dog’s medication intake on your own. If anything information, call your veterinary clinic Oshawa, ON.


Tooth Loss in Boxer Puppies

Puppies are a lot like children in that they will experience similar growing pains as they age. Boxer puppies are no different. Once they reach a certain age, they will start to lose their baby teeth in order to make room for adult teeth. Don’t be surprised if you start to find little teeth on the floor. In fact, you may want to save them as a keepsake since it’s your pup’s first time losing his teeth. If you’re concerned the teeth loss isn’t related to this, call your vet. Puppies generally grow their first set of 28 teeth between five and six weeks of age and then start to lose them anywhere between eight and twelve weeks of age. This makes room for your Boxer’s fully grown 42 adult teeth. If you’re concerned or have additional questions about your pup’s teeth, talk with your veterinarian Oshawa, ON.
