Carsick And Vomiting Dog Problem

Help with Carsick and Vomiting Dog Dear Cesar, I have 2 Cavachon dogs. My boy dog rides in the car easily and enjoys it, but my 1 ½-year old girl dog salivates the WHOLE time she is in the car and if the ride is more than 15 minutes she will vomit EVERY time.

How To Avoid Dog Bites

Other dogs, especially small ones, will nip at you for attention, and puppies may use you for teething. Here are some tips for reducing the chances of getting bitten.

An Oven On Wheels

It’s simple physics: a car with its windows rolled up on a hot day can quickly become an oven. Sunlight — and therefore heat — can get in, but they can’t get out. Even if it seems cool out, that car can get really hot very quickly. At 72° F (22° C), it only takes an hour for a car to hit 116° F (47° C). Raise the outside temperature to just 80° F (27° C) and it can hit 100° F (38° C) in just ten minutes. Put a dog in that car and not only will it contribute

Protecting Your Pack

By Cesar Millan You’ve probably never heard of Joseph Meister, but chances are good that dogs would not be the most popular household pet without him. He was born in France in 1876 and died there, in Paris, in 1940. He should have died in 1885, when he was nine years old. The reason he did not is one of the most important medical breakthroughs in modern history, and it’s why there are so many dogs as family pets around the world today. History of the Rabies Vaccine Joseph Meister should have died because he was mauled by a rabid

The Facts About Microchipping Your Dog

Microchipping Your Dog It is a sad fact that hundreds of dogs go missing every year and are found, rather bedraggled but perfectly healthy, handed in to the local animal shelter which then searches desperately for the animal’s owner to no avail. In some cases, the dogs are even euthanized. Many of these fine canines had been equipped with dog identification tags or collars but with so much time astray from their owners such collars had often slipped off or, agonizingly, the writing had become illegible. In a recent study involving over 7,700 stray pets, the number of non-microchipped dogs
