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

Hereditary eye diseases

Progressive Retinal Degeneration (PRD / PRA) refers to a group of genetic (hereditary) retinal diseases that cause damage to the photoreceptor (photosensitive) retinal cells – rods and cones, leading to their degeneration and ultimately death.
The first signs of the disease that appear in the animal are a violation of twilight (night) vision, the affected animal is poorly oriented in the dark. Further, daytime vision is gradually deteriorating. Owners also pay attention to the constantly dilated, poorly responsive to the pupils of their pet. The dog’s eyes in the dark, instead of the usual bright green, begin to “glow” yellow or even silver. In some dogs with progressive retinal degeneration, bilateral cataract begins to develop, the owners notice that the dog’s eyes become white-blue, cloudy (this is especially noticeable with dilated pupils). These signs, depending on the early or late form of the disease, most often begin to appear at the age of 1 to 5 years, but the disease can manifest itself at any age. Continue reading

Always in our memory

The first time I saw these dogs was in the movies. I really liked the hero’s yellow dog – strong, sociable, playful; I was terribly worried when the dog was shot in the middle of the picture … Once, while walking in the park, I met a woman with a dog that looked surprisingly like a dog from the movie. We talked, and I found out that these are Labradors, very pleasant and funny dogs, helpers, lifeguards. The woman talked a lot about her Chanel and Labradors, and when I let her pet her pet, I realized that I wanted such a dog, a dog with such soft hair, with such warm eyes, with such a wonderful character.
When the chocolate Labrador puppy appeared in our house, the impression was that he was always with us. Walking, feeding, playing was a completely natural activity, absolutely not burdening any of our family members. We did not know the gnawed furniture or shoes, the labrador ate all the food offered, and on the street passersby did not hide their admiration. Continue reading
