The first is to visit the vet, to advise that special care should be taken with that dog. We must protect them from sun, sunscreen, and sunglasses for dogs. Also umbrella, a mat, that is not directly on the hot sand, often with unpleasant things.
For the dogs they should put anti- flea collar to go to the beach, as many times in the arena there are many fleas. This collar can not get wet, because wet has no effect. The dog should have fresh water available to them, stay well hydrated, do not drink salt water.
A pet must be cared for as a child care because they can hurt a can, a glass or a hook that can be hidden in the sand. On the beach, the hijackers never missing pets, both for ransom, or to sell them later.
Some cities have certain parks or natural areas for dogs to run free without a leash. Note that because there are so many dogs without straps there is a potential for problems. Some things to remember are:
Keep your dog current on their vaccines. There is a high risk that your dog from getting diseases from other dogs in the park or feces have not been collected.
The cubs have not yet fully developed immune system. Do not take a walk at least until age 6 months.
Aggressive dogs should not be loose without leashes. Represent a danger to people and other pets, even if it is kept on a leash.

Everyone is very happy with the arrival of spring, but it is the time that must be very careful because it is also the time when it hatched fleas, ticks and other parasites. As more heat the eggs and larvae are favored. Fleas cause allergies, itching, irritation, discomfort, are invasive and aggressive nature.
Fleas suck blood many pets, both dogs and cats and can cause anemia, fever, weight loss, decay and other diseases.
In older pets or ill, can lead to death. It also affects the hair, skin; stings produce a crust that when they scratch or bite from itching injuries occur that lead to infections and other diseases.
The scabs left after flea bites, often confuses its own with other diseases such as scabies, ringworm or other. The cats also affected because the fleas transmit a bacteria that damages the membrane of red blood cells of cats, which can kill if treatment is delayed.
Ticks, attack in larger numbers of dogs and catch on where the dog cannot come to remove them, or they are harder to reach, as the neck, and ears.
Ticks transmit the bacterium Ehrlichia canis, which destroys platelets, and they have problems with clotting, bleeding, high fever, blindness, vomiting, and come to death.
Parakeets as pets for excellence, presented as a great company, and imposed other energy home. In addition, one of the biggest pros is that they quickly got used to being in their cages and there are very few times when trying to escape.
These animals are also characterized by a higher life expectancy to that of other birds, have survived for more than a decade. However, long-lived and are also very likely to get sick, especially when they already have several years of their feathers. The big problem is that parrots often very difficult to realize when they are sick, and usually when we find it is too late to save them.
Surely some will be wondering why it is so difficult to recognize symptoms of diseases in this type of bird. The reason is very simple: they hide. Social life among individuals within a species is very important, and when the group realizes that one is sick often put it aside to avoid infecting others.
However, there are visible signs that can help to identify early disease in a parakeet. Must pay close attention, but if they are seen rapidly you should consult a specialist.
Usually, when one of these birds is sick you often change the color of the feathers (very visible in the wings and tail) significantly reduces their mobility within the cage, the level of breathing changes strongly and feces have not consistency or smell the same tradition.
These are just some examples of abnormal behavior or physical changes that may be triggers of disease. Detecting the symptoms early is vital to save the life of your pet.
Vinegar is a natural deodorant, which makes it perfect to get rid of pet odors. We’ll see how to use it to take a urine stain from a carpet.
Mix a solution of ½ cup of white vinegar with a quart of warm water. Do not use hot water, this will only help to fix the odor and stain permanently. If you want to clean the area is still wet with urine, wipe the area with a paper towel or dry cloth to absorb excess liquid.
Continue blotting until all the moisture in the urine is gone and the paper towel becomes dry. After getting off excess urine, apply the vinegar solution and dry the area to remove the stain.
If the stain is still detectable after the carpet is completely dry, repeat this process again. If you want extra eliminating odors, sprinkle baking soda on dry carpet.
Some pets are easy to train on his way to be, other animals are shy and may need another type of training. If faced with the formation of a timid animal, first of all should know why your pet is timid, to help her overcome her shyness, and make sure you are training correctly.
Shyness can be the result of abuse, early weaning, lack of proper socialization, early malnutrition, cut the claws (for cats), mishandling by children, or may be something congenital your pet.
A clear example, some forms of shyness are caused by anxiety to bad memories as hitting your hand. In this case it is best not raise his hand to pet. O Irlo gradually making day to day week to week, to see that after this gesture does not come at once.
Other animals have different life expectancy of human beings, usually early age, but not at the same rate, also depends on diet, physical exercises, how was his life from an early age.
When it comes to choosing a pet is useful to know how many years can live.
The years that may live animals have nothing to do with his physique, but that is after its kind, and that a tortoise can live 125 years and more, while a sturdy and healthy brown bear has an expectation life of 32 years, and a chimpanzee 40 years is the oldest of the group, many species of frogs can live 30 years, the leopard does not pass the 17 years, an Amazon parrot can live quite 80 years, meaning that each species responds your biological clock.
There is a different life expectancy between captive animals and those who are in their habitat. In its natural habitat where predators are lurking, animals can live many years younger and do it with completely different characteristics.
The animals of advanced age for their species come to suffer the same ills as human suffering, such as arthritis, gradually lost vision and hearing.
It is very important to know the body language of dogs, so you can know what he feels, or is happening. The language of the dogs are barking, body movements and attitudes.
Although each race has different movements, all have similar language to be understood, and have similar gestures.

If we look for characteristic features in dogs, no doubt we will find in their keenness to feel (through hearing and smell) what we humans do not even remotely detect. Sometimes we do not realize, but the present level of detection dogs is really amazing.
Smell is one of the most important qualities. If you look at our pets, we’ll usually find at any time by making small movements with the snout. What they do is smell your territory and to detect if there is a smell coming from the usual range for which they are accustomed.

Currently, pets, more studies are cats and dogs. Now it has been the University of Oxford, which conducted the study on the intelligence of dogs vs. cat’s intelligence.
For this study was a map of the evolving intelligence of the brains of many animals of different breeds. One of the first discoveries was the relationship between brain size and sociality of the animals.
The scientists studied more than 500 brains of different animals that live today and some extinct animals, all in the same period of time. After making all the studies, concluded that the brains that have evolved are the horses, dolphins, that of camels, and dogs. Read the rest of this entry »
