Doggy First Aid Kit – Be Prepared

Accidents happen. Consider a doggy first aid kit to be prepared in the event of an emergency. When your pet is injured, you won’t have time to rummage around in a frantic search for something to help him. First aid has to be right away. For this reason, it’s a very good idea to set aside a box containing your dog’s own medicines and the equipment you will need in case of emergency.

His medicine chest should include the following:

  • Milk of magnesia to serve as a laxative.
  • Adhesive tape and bandages for dressing wounds.
  • Activated charcoal as a poison antidote.
  • Antiseptics, such as Merthiolate, metaphen or peroxide for cleansing wounds, and Neosporin ointment to prevent infection.
  • A rectal thermometer and Vaseline or K-Y lubricant.
  • Hydrogen peroxide, mustard powder or salt for emetics.
  • Burn medicines contained in aerosol sprays, as prescribed by your veterinarian. Aromatic spirits of ammonia for shock treatment.
  • Blunt-ended scissors for cutting hair away from wounds.
  • Benadryl to control swelling and inflammation.

Safety First

Most accidents, after all, are the result of neglect. By far the greatest cause of serious injury and death in dogs, for example, is the automobile. It takes only one moment of neglect, one moment off the leash or out of the fenced yard, to cause this tragedy.

An ounce of prevention will work its proverbial magic if you will only observe a few simple safety rules for your pup. Here, then, are some guidelines for accident prevention.

Keep Your Dog Confined When He’s Outdoors

If your yard is fenced, make sure there are no holes he can wriggle through, that the gate latches firmly and that family and visitors are warned to close it securely. If the yard is not fenced, then you should construct some kind of run or play area for a puppy. It need not be large; even a playpen, placed in a shady spot in the garden, will work as a temporary measure. Put in a weighted pan of water and a few toys to amuse puppy when he’s alone.

For a permanent run, enclose an area with sturdy metal fencing at least 6-feet high (dogs are amazingly adept at climbing). A run 6-feet wide and 20- to 30-feet long is large enough for almost all breeds. Cover the surface with a porous material, such as sand or gravel; plain earth holds the dampness and is unsanitary.

 

Choose a location that provides both sun and shade, keep the run clean and always provide water.

Make sure there are no garden poisons or pesticides within puppy’s reach. Clear the yard of broken glass, stones, small pebbles, or any other objects that he might swallow.

Never Unleash Puppy When You Are Walking Him on a Public Street

In one unleashed instant he might dash into the path of an oncoming car. If he rides in the car with you, always attach his leash to his collar before you open the door; he might bolt head-on into the tragic.

Keep Puppy Confined to His Crate or Playpen When He’s Alone in the House

If he’s getting too old for this kind of treatment, put him in a room that has been carefully puppy-proofed: light cords disconnected, all swallowable objects removed, nothing to chew on but his own safe toys. And keep an eye on him when he has the run of the house.

Make sure all household poisons such as cleaning agents and human medicines are out of reach. He’s not actually looking for trouble, but he does have a way of finding it.

Canine Behavior and Genetic Predisposition

Did you know that your canine’s behavior could actually be affected by the gene pool to which they belong? So when see your fur baby playing fetch over and over again (hello, English Springer Spaniel) or is unstoppable at chewing the blanket (but the labs are so cute!), do remember that it is their genetic makeup causing them to behave in certain ways.

Yes, it is true! Just check out the Christmas article on testing your dog’s DNA. Truth be told, there is plenty of pending research around this topic. For the curious pet parent, there are plenty of DIY DNA test kits available to determine your pooch genetic make-up.

DNA and Behavior

Particular behavioral traits of dogs could explain how the genetic link is true.

Some breeds of dogs are better at remembering things than other breeds. This is a particular genome that helps in building a better memory than other breeds.

Labradors are great at retrieving things and it is a common feature among labs of all shapes, sizes and color. This is yet another distinctive feature among dogs of this breed. Owing to the fact that selective breeding has been done for generations together, decoding dog DNA might be a lot more simplified than human DNA.

How Will the Studies Help?

People seem to know more about the bodies and physical responses of a dog than their behavior and their brain structure. The primary reason behind this is there has never been a large scale study involving the behavioral traits and the genetic data of several dogs together.

Researchers are more inclined towards citizen science research so that they can study the genetics responsible for canine behavior effectively. The biggest benefit of this research would clearly be to help pet parents have a better understanding of their pets. They would also be able to find out ways to accommodate the changes in the behavioral pattern of dogs as and when they change.

What Are Some Examples?

Considering the fact that dog DNA is the highlight of the day, the studies reveal some interesting facts about dogs and their tendencies. A study made in the year 2014 revealed that there are 4 specific genes intricately connected with the development of OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Behavior) in canines.

These genes seemed to be found in breeds like Doberman Pinschers, German Shepherds, Shetland Sheepdogs and Bull Terriers.

Helping Pet Parents Make Informed Decisions

The fact that a dog’s behavioral pattern is largely affected by its gene pool is not news anymore. With better awareness, potential pet parents are being greatly influenced by the findings.

If a particular breed has predominant ‘undesirable’ behavioral patterns, pet parents are either writing them off completely or are looking at adaptations and adjustments to their training and socialization patterns so that these traits could be erased at the earliest stage. You could call this an informed decision.

Does Your Dog Want a DNA Test for Christmas?

Not sure what to get your dog this year? A dog DNA test could be the perfect stocking stuffer for your pooch.

While it’s true that Fido probably doesn’t give a lick what breeds his great grandparents were, the info can be valuable for owners.

In addition to satisfying the curiosity of mixed-breed mutt owners, knowing the breed background of your dog can provide important medical and behavioral insights.

Dog DNA kits can run a number of genetic tests on your dog revealing an array of potential diseases like Multi-Drug Sensitivity or even glaucoma. While the exact tests conducted vary depending on the sophistication of the kit (more genetic tests come at a higher price point), knowing that your dog is susceptible to certain genetic illnesses can help you work on preventive measures to keep your pooch healthy.

Your dog’s breed background can also be immensely helpful when developing a training plan. Once it’s revealed that your dog has a bit of shepherd in him, you may consider enrolling him in a herding class to help burn cooped up energy. Getting your dog involved in activities he was bred to do can be hugely satisfying and mentally rewarding for you and your dog!

This infographic on Why Your Dog Wants a DNA Test For Christmas outlines some of the benefits dog DNA tests can offer curious owners. Convinced that you need a DNA test for your pooch? Make sure to check out DogBreedIdentifier.com for dog DNA test reviews and more info!
