Labrador Care

Paws
The laborer’s easy gait is largely dependent on the condition of the claws. If the dog walks a lot on asphalt or other hard ground, the claws grind by themselves. But with a constant walk on a soft surface (snow, sand, grass), the nails grow very much, the paw cannot assemble into a “lump”, it becomes flat, which causes great inconvenience. It is convenient to cut the nails with a special nail clipper, and if it is not, then with ordinary nippers. Usually it is enough to cut the claws once a week, they are shortened to a small length so as not to touch the blood vessel and nerve inside the claw. Strongly grown claws should Continue reading

Bites of ticks, wasps, horseflies, mosquitoes, snakes

After a walk in the forest, you noticed something similar to a papilloma or wart on the skin of a dog! This is a tick! How to remove a sucking tick?
The traditional advice is to drip vegetable oil onto the tick and wait until it comes out. However, this does not work.
By the way, it is advised to destroy the tick that has come out reliably – for example, burn it …

Unconventional advice – spray on a sucking tick with Front Line and the tick will die and fall off by itself within a Continue reading

“About it”

The dog is a predator. Its gastrointestinal tract is adapted to digest animal protein (meat and meat products). All the conversations: they say, so many years next to a person, matured, accustomed, changed and became a vegetarian – are meaningless. There is indisputable evidence: a relatively large stomach, short intestines, a specific ratio of intestinal microflora, a limited set of enzymes – the dog inherited almost unchanged form from its closest relative – the wolf. And if the horse does not occur to anyone to feed meat, or, God forbid, pour diesel fuel into his beloved car with a gasoline engine (it will be covered!), Then dogs are often offered porridge and vegetables as the main diet. But it is precisely for this reason that our pets suffer from many chronic diseases. Continue reading
