The Secret Of Gray Hounds

If you’ve ever had a senior dog, you may have noticed that they got a little gray around the snout as they got older, not unlike humans. This makes sense, since the only difference between human hair and animal fur is the word we use to describe them. But what about the ways and reasons that humans and dogs go gray? Are they the same or different? One thing that dogs and humans do have in common is the ability to go gray prematurely.

Los Síntomas De Gusanos En Perros

Los gusanos son uno de los problemas de salud más comunes en los perros. Hay cinco tipos de gusanos que por lo general afectan a los perros: gusanos de corazón, nematodos, anquilostomas, lombriz solitaria y tricocéfalos. Ciertos tipos de gusanos son más fáciles de detectar que otros. Por ejemplo, un perro con lombriz solitaria suele tener lo que se parece a granos de arroz en su materia fecal. Gusanos del corazón, por el contrario, son más difíciles de diagnosticar y un perro infectado a menudo muestra solamente síntomas sutiles hasta que la enfermedad ha progresado a una etapa más avanzada.

It may be because of one of the following problems: Dry skin Your dog may be biting himself in an attempt to relieve the itchiness of dry skin, which could be caused by

10 Dogs That Don’t Shed (Much)

Just because you love dogs doesn’t mean you love having their fur all over your house. After all, who wants to sit on a couch that’s more hair than cushion? Or be forced to run their vacuum on a daily (okay, weekly) basis? And if you have allergies, a dog that sheds a lot can leave you sneezing, wheezing, or even covered with a nasty rash — not fun. In contrast, while not all low-shedding dogs (there’s no such thing as a dog who doesn’t shed at all) are hypoallergenic, they can help to keep you from pulling your hair

Though you don’t hear about it too often these days, mange is a skin disease that many have described as “scabies for dogs.” The condition is caused by microscopic mites, and whether it’s a big deal largely depends upon the type of mange — sarcoptic or demodectic. Demodectic mange All pups that are raised naturally by their mothers have demodectic mites, because they are passed

¿Con Qué Frecuencia Debo Bañar A Mi Perro?

La respuesta simple es: ¿Con qué frecuencia quieres bañar a tu perro? A menos que el perro tenga un problema de la piel, no hay ninguna necesidad de seguir un calendario específico para el baño, excepto para hacer de él un compañero más agradable. Así como la gente, algunos perros apestan más rápido que otros. He conocido perros que nunca han tenido un baño en su vida y que no tienen un olor desagradable, pero a mis propios perros necesito bañarles mensualmente para que huelan bien. Te recomiendo que bañes a un perro de piel normal al menos una vez
