Tick Removal
Ticks

Embedded ticks should be removed using fine-tipped tweezers. DO NOT use petroleum jelly, a hot match, nail polish, or other products. With a steady motion, pull the tick’s body away from the skin. Cleanse the area with an antiseptic. Learn more about tick removal.

Dogs are very susceptible to tick bites and tickborne diseases. Vaccines are not available for all the tickborne diseases that dogs can get, and they don’t keep the dogs from bringing ticks into your home. For these reasons, it’s important to use a tick preventive product on your dog. Learn more.

Evolution of the Domestic Dog Redux

I’ve written about the evolution of the domestic dog before. What makes this such a great time to be a dog science geek is that in the few years since I wrote that post there’s been a lot of new research and new thought on the topic.

This is one of those subjects that is probably never going to be completely settled, at least not without time travel — and even then we would need a lot of luck. Chances are there was more than one "domestication event" and each one had likely slightly different factors contributing to its genesis.

This infographic, from The Uncommon Dog explains domestication with a bit of a hybrid view between the "adoption" theory that was very popular until relatively recently, and the self-domestication theory that I wrote about before (and still find more believable than adoption.) It’s an interesting take on the origins of the domestic dog.

What I really enjoyed about this graphic is the additional information about how dogs may have helped us survive. For more on that and on how we evolved together, start here and here.

Here’s the graphic. Enjoy! (Click for the full size version on the orginal site.)

{Guest Article}Quiet Time – What’s That? By Elizabeth Marks

Quiet Time – What’s That? By Elizabeth Marks Genesis 18:1 KJV And the Lord appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre; and he sat in the tent door in the heat of day Abraham was sitting quietly in his tent door.  Perhaps he was  meditating or praying.  We don’t know for sure.  However, we do know to sit means to be fairly still and not moving around. Notice how the Lord appeared to Abraham when he was still?  How often are we still?   Do you allow stillness into your daily routine?  It is within this stillness you can  hear the Lord speaking to you….

The Epidemic of Overweight Pets: Treats and Excess Carbs Can Shorten Lives!

So many pets are overweight in the U.S.and those extra pounds are taking years off their life!

Excess pounds can prevent blood from moving where it should, keep the lungs and heart from working efficiently, and will grind down cartilage covered joints to bone on bone contact and result in painful arthritis!

The directions on pet food cans and bags often advise feeding 25-50% more than needed. Many dogs and cats need less because of LOW METABOLISM.

A 30 min walk 3-5 times a week can help dogs stay in shape, raise their calorie burning capacity, and help their muscles burn extra calories! It’s hard to get cats to exercise, so changing the type of food is the best bet.

It’s the amount of food we feed and the high amount of carbs in the diet that make our dogs and cats fat!.For dogs, dry commercial food can be made lower calorie by feeding half the amount soaked in water or mixed with canned green beans. Feeding the same commercial canned food as the dry may help because canned food has less calories per ounce than it’s dry food cousin.  Canned food may help decrease calories and encourage weight loss. For cats, changing the diet to canned from dry food may help with weight loss and avoid chronic medical problems like diabetes and arthritis.

High carb treats pack a bunch of needless calories. Feeding 2 -3 biscuits a day may make weight loss impossible. Feed a higher protein treat like a piece of chicken, cheese, fish, or piece of chicken hotdog! You can also feed baby carrots, green beans, or apples to those fruit and veggie types!

Lower calorie, nutritious treats like Lickety Stik are grain free, organic, have nutrients, and less calories for those weight challenged pets

My Corgi was so overweight she didn’t want to do anything but lay around and eat. Since putting her on your diet in “Feed your Pet to avoid the Vet.” She has slimmed down nicely. She is now more energetic and chases squirrels. She’s happier, more loving, her fur is so soft. As I’m sure you know, Corgis shed a lot! With her that has even slowed down a great deal and no fleas. Her teeth are clean and she doesn’t have dog breath! Thank you Dr. Greg for writing the books and educating us on a better much healthier way to feed our fur-babies!

What is the best way to treat cat ear mites?

Question by monkeyluvr: What is the best way to treat cat ear mites?
So my cat has ear mites, I read online that if you pour olive oil into her ear it can help treat the ear mites. Well today I took a cotton swab of olive oil and rubbed it around her ear. Well in the past few hours I’ve noticed that she become distant (hiding in really dark areas, which she never does) and i think it’s gotten worse, possibly they’ve moved from her right ear to left ear? Is that a good sign? I’m not sure what to do, she keeps scratching her ear and meowing a lot. Help?

Best answer:

Answer by %$ #$ #)@
Olive oil does NOTHING and you probably hurt her by shoving a cotton swab in her ear. Your cat needs a VET not useless home remedies. The vet can give your cat a single dose of Revolution which will kill the ear mites.
