How do I know when my dog is ready to give birth?

by Dogo on 8/10/2010 at 11:50 AM in Best Post

The first thing you do is monitoring the temperature regularly and specially 4 days before the due day. It takes about 58-63 days from the time your dog was bred. Your dog's temperature is supposed to drop down to 98. The normal body temperature* of a dog is 101.5° F. She will probably vomit and stop eating. She'll be restless and seeking for a quiet place to have her puppies. However, she'll have no pain from contractions. Some people recommend preparing a box for her to have her pups. About 24 hours before the labor milk is produced. Be prepared to assist the mother when giving birth, if necessary, and remove the covering membranes from the puppy, clean the face and also remove mucus from face and nose so that the pups will be able to breathe. Applying iodine at the end of the umbilical cord might help to prevent infection. It's not healthy for the mother to eat most of the placentas. She might have diarrhea for a few days. There is about 30 to 60 minutes between births. The mother rests a little after each birth. The room temperature* should be no less than 70° F and cold floors should be avoided.

Does your doggie have bad breath?

by Dogo on 8/10/2010 at 11:48 AM in Best Post

Try brushing your pet's teeth regularly and provide your dog with a healthy diet. Some people give their dogs treats that help remedy bad breath. However, a healthy diet will not only eliminate displeasing odors but it will also promote your dog's health*. Some people recommend a raw diet as this is what dogs are designed to eat. Most commercial food has artificial color, salt, sugar and flavoring added to make your dog eat it. Dogs get addicted to junk food just like humans. Brushing your dog's teeth will also help as it'll stop bacteria from entering the bloodstream and spread to your dog's kidney, liver, heart, and at times the brain. Usually small breeds are the ones that have unhealthy teeth. Oral diseases in dogs can affect their immune system and reduce their ability to fight infections. Therefore your doggie is left exposed to infections. Bad breath is a symbol of bad health. Any preventive* care will help you save some bucks!
