General principles of first aid

Helping a poisoned animal is a very difficult task even for an experienced veterinarian, not to mention the owner of the animal, since it is usually very difficult to determine what kind of poison the pet poisoned. Nevertheless, first aid should be provided as soon as possible. With an obvious picture of poisoning, and with suspicion of it, first of all, you should try to find out the nature of the poisonous substance and its penetration into the body: through the respiratory system, skin or mouth. Any information and trifles found at the place of poisoning can help with this: packaging from any chemicals or drugs; leftover food; odors of volatile substances, vomit with a characteristic odor, etc. Naturally, accurate identification of a poisonous substance will help to properly and efficiently fight poisoning.

Heatstroke

Features of thermoregulation in labradors make them very susceptible to heat. Dogs in natural conditions in the heat have the opportunity to go into the shade or hide in a hole. Vessels located close to the surface of the skin expand, the volume of blood flow increases, and heat transfer to the environment increases five to six times. All higher mammals in the skin have glands that produce sweat. The evaporation of moisture from the surface of the body is enhanced. Dogs cool more often by breathing. Under normal conditions, a dog inhales and exhales air twenty to forty times per minute. At high temperature, she makes three to four hundred breaths per minute. Not only the respiratory rate changes, Continue reading

Mycoplasmosis and ureaplasmosis

Mycoplasmas – the smallest free-living microorganisms (prokaryotes), belong to the family of Musplasmataceae, which is part of the Mycoplasmatales class of the Mollicutes class. Mycoplasmas are extremely polymorphic microorganisms. In smears prepared from organs and cultures, round, ring-shaped, oval, cocciform and filiform formations are found. Cells have a different size, which according to various authors, ranges from 125 to 600 nm. The features of mycoplasmas that are unique to prokaryotes are: the absence of the cell wall and its precursors (which biophysically brings them closer to the L-forms of bacteria). Instead of the cell wall, they have a three-layer membrane, a cytoplasm with a nuclear substance, granules and vacuoles. The membrane consists of polar lipids and proteins. The average cell Continue reading
