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 …
If you simply tear off the sucking tick, its jaws will remain in the skin. In this place there will be a small bump, then a small abscess that takes quite a long time – a month, sometimes more. This is not dangerous. Treat the bump with green stuff!
Try to grab the tick body with your fingers, as close as possible to the skin of the labrador and using an hourly hand with twisting movements, pull out the tick. At the time of pulling out you will hear a characteristic sound!
Unconventional advice – spray on a sucking tick with Front Line and the tick will die and fall off by itself within a 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

Labrador Heart

When the dogs “go to heaven, new stars light up there …” I want to believe this after the pilot and poet Exupery, so that, looking into the bottomless night space, I remember the good that “our little brothers” gave us.

Somewhere, behind the constellation of the Hounds of the Dogs, there is probably the constellation of Labradors … I think so when I remember the chocolate Mona, which appeared in our house ten years ago, with a small fluffy lump and cheerful eyes, a wide velvet forehead, with satin pillows on thick strong legs and a bare pink belly.

Then I did not know how much my life would change, as I did not expect that this chocolate Mona – Mellani would eventually become the Queen – the mother of a large family of Labradors in the nursery Ans Lumens, “The Existing Light” (translated from Latin in interpretation – Divine Being), which gave true friends and even Champions to many lovers and connoisseurs of these noble animals.

And when – years later – Mona will leave – she will light up with a small star in the very constellation of Labradors that is Continue reading
