Ticks can cause a wide diversity of medical problems with the frontrunners being Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. It is crucial that if your dog contracts ticks you immediately treat both your dog and the environment.

Are they dangerous to dogs?


Yes, very dangerous as are all rawhide chews. They also get lodged in their throats. We had to reach into our dog's throat to remove the rawhide. That was scary and we will never buy a rawhide product again!

How to remove tick?


First of all put a little vinegar in the dogs water that keeps the ticks away next ticks look like a small crabs the size of a dot and becomes the size of a pencils eraser.. it sucks the blood of the dog and get that big. When you see a tick that big you have to pinch the dogs skin below the ticks teeth and pull it off and mash it or it can get on you. It loves blood. If you pull just the body the teeth will keep sucking and what a bloody mess I\'ve done alot of pinchen. Good luck

Is vegetable glycerin dangerous to dogs?


Vegetable Glycerin serves as a sweetener and also protects the food against mold. It also is a byproduct left over from soap and biofuels production. It is ranked as a generally safe item but I wouldnt feed my dog that. If you also notice that your dog is not responding well to it, i would stop from feeding them that.

How to take Dogs temperature?
Required Things:

• Digital pet thermometer

• Lubrication, such as petroleum jelly or mineral oil

• Soap and water

• Rubbing alcohol

For a breeder it is mandatory to know why their pet not feeling well? Why he/she has lack of appetite, restless, and not involved in daily activities. These are signs and symptoms suggested that their pet is ill. Fever can be in these illnesses. It requires special attention. A dog is not express like human when it gets fever, and has not signs (e.g. warm skin, and trembling). For these reasons it is important to know and learn how to take temperatures reading of fever as a vet can do it. It can be done very impressively to follow the following steps:

First of all you should have a Digital pet thermometer; it can be bought by local market.

For your help call somebody who hold the dog when you take the readings.

Do clean your Digital pet thermometer with prescribed rubbing alcohol.

Before taking a temperature apply lubricant (i.e. petroleum jelly or mineral oil).

Pick dog\'s tail upward and insert thermometer gently into your dog\'s rectum. Put it into half of the length of the thermometer.

Grasp the thermometer in that position until it beeps, or for 1 to 2 minutes.

Pull it out and look at it to see what your dog\'s temperature is.

The normal body temperature should between 100.5 to 102.5 degrees Fahrenheit

Clean the thermometer thoroughly with semi-hot water and prescribed soap

Ask your vet if temperature is low or high with sign of sickness.

During the learning process (dog\'s temperature measurement process), be relaxed and don\'t show nervousness to your canine. This will add to the pet\'s irritation.

Be very conscious during all the process of taking temperature, don\'t insert thermometer into deep of dog\'s rectum, it can be a cause of pain.

Tie a cord around the other end of the thermometer so that if it slips or accidentally go into your dog\'s rectum too deeply, you will be able to easily pull it back.

Remember a digital pet thermometer is best than an oral human thermometer to measure dog\'s temperature. Conventional sort (contains mercury) can be very dangerous if accidentally broken.

Always prefer rectal digital thermometer to take a temperature reading of pet.

Ear thermometer is also available in market but it is not as accurate as rectal thermometer is.

Never strive to take your canine\'s temperature if he/she is very irritated or very hyper. If you do so, it could be dangerous for pet. Be patience until dog calms down when he/she calm down then attempt to insert the thermometer.

Without lubrication insertion may be dangerous action it can cause the pain.

Self medication is prohibited if the temperature of pet is very low/high.

Do not get anger with your canine if he/she will not get calm enough to permit you to insert the thermometer. Take him/her to your vet if you are not capable to take your dog\'s temperature.

Can pig ears be dangerous for dogs?


Yes, they can. The problem with pig ears is that once the dog chews on them, they can break into small pieces, which then can be dangerous for the dog if it eats them.

If I don't heat or cool down my dog house with an air conditioning unit, is it dangerous for my dog?


Obviously it depends how extreme the temperatures are where you live, but in general when dogs seriously overheat, they are at risk of a stroke and when they get dangerously cold, they are at risk of hypothermia and frostbite.

Every time I take my dog to the groomers he starts shaking uncontrollably. Is it possible that they do something wrong to him while he's there? He seems so scared to go?


Don't worry, most dogs have this "shaking" reaction when going to the groomers. By nature, dogs are very intuitive and pick up on their owners anxiety. Try keeping calm and reassuring your dog that everything is ok. If you are really concerned then find a shop that will let you stay and watch while your dog is being groomed.

How can I control fleas and ticks in my backyard? I'm scared to let my dog outside; we just got rid of his fleas.


Here is what you need to do: cut all tall grass, trim all bushes and shrubs and rake all leaves under your bushes. Look into buying a lawn insecticide and spray under shrubs, bushes and all shaded areas. Wait a considerable amount of time after spraying (up to 6 hours) before letting your dog play outside.
