Houndstooth Tales and Tails – The hilarity of everyday life After a tough weekend of studying and sweating, I am happy to say that I am finally done with all my classes for the summer semester. For the next month, I plan to enjoy life as much as I can. I have a long list of things I want to do. We’ll see how many […] The post Finally Done appeared first on Tales and Tails. https://talesandtails.com/finally-done/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=finally-doneRead More
Ticks are blood-sucking, disease-spreading parasites that are genetically related to spiders. They are found worldwide and pose considerable risk to your dog (and you!) because of the bacteria they carry and transmit through their bites – bacteria that can cause serious, even life-threatening illnesses, including Lyme disease. It’s important to defend your dog from ticks to the extent possible, and promptly remove any ticks you are unable to prevent from reaching your dog, in order to protect him from tick-borne disease. KNOW THY ENEMY This grape-sized engorged tick probably had been feeding on a dog for many days. It can be difficult when the tick is this engorged, but you must take great care to not squeeze the tick as you remove it. Squeezing the tick can force any pathogens present in the tick into the dog. Instead, use a tick-removing tool that will slide close to the dog’s skin…Read More
Choosing the right dog food for your puppy is a significant part of his development. Here are a few tips to help you. There are hundreds of different dog food brands to choose from, and each brand has multiple formulas or flavors. While many of these foods come in flashy bags and claim to be tasty or good for your dog, not all foods are made equally. Below is a comparison between three lower-end and three higher-end foods. Note the ingredients and other nutritional information in each. The first five ingredients are the most important; try to avoid corn if possible, as dogs cannot digest this very well. Also, keep in mind that higher-end foods tend to cost a bit more. If you are unsure about which brand of food to select for your dog, consult your veterinarian. Your vet’s office should be able to provide you with additional health…Read More
Consumers can’t know the health value of packaged dog foods by viewing or feeding them. Processing makes products non-descript, and manufacturers can cleverly make about anything look like anything they like, e.g., starch, textured vegetable protein, and dyes that can look like a pork chop. Additionally, taste enhancers can make non-foods palatable. Short-term feeding results do not reveal the true health measure of a food’s value – long, active, vital life, free from chronic degenerative disease conditions. Judging merit by reading advertising, marketing brochures, and package labels can also be deceiving. Although it would seem that regulation would not permit false and misleading information in the marketplace, this is not the case. So assuming that what is said in advertising is true because it is in a reputable publication or on a beautifully designed brochure or package is a dangerous mistake. So if all the commonly used criteria for judging…Read More
As we ride out the dog days of summer, many of us are enjoying water-based activities with our dogs. Whether at the shore, in the family pool, or on a boat, kayak, or paddleboard, it’s important to ensure your dog’s safety with a good-quality, well-fitted personal flotation device (PFD) for your dog. Even though most dogs instinctively “dog paddle” when they find themselves in water, that alone won’t always keep them safe when away from dry land. Some dogs dislike water and are prone to panicking. Dogs with significant muscle mass or very little body fat are less buoyant and must work harder to stay afloat, as do older dogs who tire easily, or arthritic dogs. Some dogs are just poor swimmers, bobbing vertically in the water, splashing so much with their front paws that they can’t see where they’re going. Even athletic, accomplished swimmers can struggle in the water…Read More
When I was new to raw feeding, I ordered every supplement that was recommended to me. My mistake was joining every raw feeding group that would have me and believing that the members were experts in dog nutrition. I couldn’t have been more wrong. While I have met a lot of people who have decades […] The post 3 Reasons Raw Feeders Should Take Advantage of Auto-Ship first appeared on Keep the Tail Wagging. https://keepthetailwagging.com/3-reasons-raw-feeders-should-take-advantage-of-auto-ship/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=3-reasons-raw-feeders-should-take-advantage-of-auto-shipRead More
