You can never be certain about your dog’s life expectancy, and by allowing her to produce pups you will at least be guaranteed some continuity.

It is important to remember, however, that breeding dogs is not an easy task; and you will need to start off by finding the right mate.

Once puppies are born it will be your responsibility as the breeder to take good care of them.

    Nursing a sick pet dog

    Nursing a sick dog is one of the vital measures that a dog owner needs to understand. Similarly, when a dog becomes sick, the dog is in need of more care and affection based activities by the dog owners. Nursing a sick animal is often considered as an art and this should not be taken as a causal measure.

    Hyperplasia In Aged Male Dogs

    Hyperplasia In Aged Male Dogs

    Hyperplasia of the prostate gland is a benign expansion due to an increase in how many cells within the gland and happens in about 2/3 of aged male pet dogs. However, only a small percentage of these puppies ever show any recognizable signs of the abnormality. The main cause is unknown but is thought to be an imbalance of the hormones generated in maturity testicles. As the prostate is located directly below the rectum, the enlarged gland may press up against the rectal walls and cause difficulties and suffering while defecating, straining, and constipation. Unlike man, there is rarely any pain or problems in urinating.

    Treatment with an estrogen injection usually prevents the symptoms, reduces the size of the prostate within five or six days, and will keep it that way for several months, in most cases, and occasionally for several years. Some few pet dogs respond poorly, or not at all, and can be helped only by castration, which causes a permanent shrinking of the prostate. Continue reading

    More than excitability And Inhibition Activity In Pet dogs

    About excitability is the term used to identify almost all the trouble dogs we view, especially when they’re stressed by different surroundings, unknown people, some other dogs, cultural isolation, physical restraint, stimulation, and sudden loud noises. At the other end of the spectrum of behavioral reactivity, we see seriously inhibited pets that react to stress by total inaction or slow, stiff movements, and apparent depression, seeming to lose contact with environmental stimuli. The condition normally occurs while the pet owners sleep at night at night, or when the dogs are left alone, especially for a long period of time. The stress of being ignored, even if the owners are there, stimulates the mother to introverted behavior (self-mutilation) and stimulates the extremely excitable son toward extroverted over-activity.

    Both excitability and inhibition can be increased by many herbs and synthetic drugs, as well as those extracted from living tissues. The simple fact such drug treatments do not affect all individuals (dogs or people) in the same way supports the belief that the balance among internal neurochemicals may be the primary factor influencing the behavioral expression of excitability or inhibition.
