¿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

Señales Y Síntomas De Que Tu Perro Siente Dolor

  Por lo general, cuando una persona siente dolor difícilmente uno no se da cuenta. Nos quejamos de nuestra espalda dolorida. Gritamos si pisamos en algo puntiagudo. Nos cojeamos porque nos duele poner presión sobre una pierna. Nos acostamos en el medio del día en completo silencio y en la oscuridad porque tenemos migraña. Desgraciadamente, a los perros no es tan fácil expresar dolor. En primer lugar, para empezar por lo obvio, no pueden decirnos si algo duele porque hay esa cosa de no-hablar.

A Place Of Their Own: What To Look For In Dog Beds

Sprawled out on the kitchen floor. Curled up in a discarded coat. Nestled into the back seat of your car. These are all places where your dog can sleep — and quite comfortably too.

Below, we’ve listed just a few of the ways a dog bed can benefit both you and

Dog Vitamins And Supplements

By Juliana Weiss-Roessler Do you take a daily multivitamin? You may wonder if your dog can benefit from one as well. In fact, some estimates say that around one third of dogs receive supplements. Why Dogs Need Vitamins Much like in humans, vitamins help a dog’s body to function properly, regulating everything from digestion to muscle growth. They’re crucial to maintaining your dog’s health, and a deficiency of a particular vitamin can cause health problems, which can sometimes have serious and long-lasting effects. But here’s the good news: most pups are probably getting what they need from their dog food.

His ears tend to swell and we have been given ‘canaural’ to use. We have been told he has an allergy to house dust, and we control his environment as much as possible, but his skin is no better. Is there anything else we could try? Corinna Waters Standish, Wigan UK Read Dr. Kristy Conn’s Advice Canine atopy is a common disease of dogs where they

Designing Your Home For Your Dog And Your Dog’s Home For You

When we think of architecture and home design, we generally think in human terms. Is the home or apartment big enough for the family? Is it in a style that the residents can live with? When it comes to the interior, is the furniture arranged to provide plenty of room to move around, but also make the TV easy to see from various angles and the dining table easy to sit at with no one shoved up against a wall? All of these elements are important from a human point of view, but it is too easy to forget that

Rehabilitating A Puppy Mill Dog

Cesar is not alone when he recommends “adopt, don’t shop” when getting a new dog, but a substantial number of pets still come from puppy mills, whether direct from a pet shop or breeder, or via a rescue or shelter. Rescuing a Puppy Mill Dog Puppy mill dogs require extra attention and training in order to rehabilitate them because the conditions they were brought up in are horrible.
