Swimming dogs are at risk of ingesting too much water
As the weather gets warmer, stay safe. Water intoxication can affect both people and our pups.
There are several things that could make your dog gag very often. Gagging is a symptom that is similar to choking and coughing. While your pet may not actually be choking on an object or a bone, he may be suffering from a condition known as reverse sneezing. When your pet sneezes, he releases air from his nostrils, but if he’s suffering from reverse sneezing he will rapidly take in air through his nose and make loud coughing, hacking or snorting sounds.
Can something as simple as carefully reading a dog-food label add three to five years to your pet’s life? Can the wrong bite of an ostensibly healthy fruit have nasty and lasting consequences? Does your dog need a diet—and would you know if he did? For pups as for people, scientists are constantly -reexamining and revising the official live-longer-and-better guidelines.
Let’s face it, dogs are territorial animals by nature. They like to protect their territory, their family, and their belongings. Territorial marking is different from urination because it is only a small amount to make other dogs aware that this is their territory. When people notice that their dog has been marking around the house, it is not usually done out of spite, but out of insecurity.
