Dog Health Tip #27
Excessive itching and scratching indicates canine allergies. Dogs frequently have allergic reactions to products found at home such as cleaners, detergents, even plastic food bowls or chew toys. See your vet for a remedy and help in determining what needs to be removed from your living environment for the continued health of your pet.
Dog Health Tip #26
Dogs need loyal humans. Spend plenty of time with your pooch. Whether bonding in training classes, exercising with one another at the park or resting on the sofa at the end of a long day, the time you and your dog spend together doesn’t just benefit you. This love and attention also keeps your dog happy and healthy.
Dog Health Tip #24
Getting your dog to eat has more to do with smell than taste. Dogs have less than a quarter of the number of taste buds humans have, but their sense of smell quivers inquisitively at all the interesting scents surrounding them. Leftovers and garbage attract dogs because of the smell. If something smells edible, a dog will happily scarf down every fragrant bit.
Dog Health Tip #23
If you can’t stand on the pavement, then it’s too hot for my paws too!
Dogs cool themselves by panting and through their footpads. Imagine if the only way to cool yourself was through your feet and you had to walk around on scorching pavement. Even a small amount of exposure to this can cause heat stress in a dog. Make sure you use a KoolCollar, provide plenty of shade and water on warm days.
