General First Aid For Your Dog by Randy Jones [17 Jul 2008|09:27pm]
General First Aid For Your Dog
 by: Randy Jones
Like young children, puppies are accident prone, some more than others, males ore than females. As they become bolder and more explorative, adolescent dogs get into all kinds of scrapes. By the time they reach maturity, however, all of them will have learned to recognize their physical limitations. In spite of their worldly wisdom, there are simply too many hazards in modern life to remain completely immune from accidental injuries.

A few notions of first aid may save your dogs life. First of all, size up the situation and decide what needs to be done. Talk to your dog constantly in a reassuring tone of voice. He will know instinctively that you are trying to help him and will usually be co-operative. The most common ailments requiring first aid are wounds and bites.

The gravity of a wound depends on its location, its type and its importance. Minor, superficial cuts usually heal rapidly with first aid care. Body wounds may require stitching by the vet, as do head wounds of any importance. Any wounds involving an artery require urgent veterinary attention and immediate first aid in order to control the bleeding in the meantime.

Bleeding from a wound comes either from a vein (in which case the blood flow is dark red in a steady flow and can be stopped by applying pressure with a tight bandage or your fingers). Capillary blood vessels near the skin surface can also cause bleeding, usually the result of a bruise. A sufficiently large gauze pad, dampened to prevent it from sticking, can be used to apply pressure over this wound. Lastly, bleeding form an artery is the worst type of wound.

Bleeding form an artery spurts out in rhythm with the heartbeat is bright red, and is stopped by direct pressure on the bleeding area with a clean cloth or an ice pack. Arterial bleeding can also be stopped with a tourniquet placed between the wound and the heart. Use a soft, strong strip of cloth, a necktie, or a handkerchief tied tightly enough to stop the bleeding, and release it for one minute in every 10 minutes, while you rush your dog to the vet.

Dog and cat bites should be treated like puncture wounds, washing them with soap and water, pouring in antiseptic, and checking for signs of infection which would call for an antibiotic or penicillin injection by the vet. If the biter was a stray, wild, or unknown animal, take your dog to the vet at once for precautionary protection against rabies. For any puncture wound you should wash the puncture all the way to the bottom. This is best done by the vet who can anesthetize the dog or at least restrain him during this painful process.

All ordinary wounds should first be examined and any foreign matter removed. If the wound is dirty, you may let it bleed for a moment, then wash it thoroughly with mild soap and water. Wipe or sponge it dry and apply an antiseptic, such as:

- mercurochrome (good for bruises and minor cuts)
- 3 percent hydrogen peroxide (recommended for deep cuts, since it foams on contact with flesh and helps clean the wound)

The majority of minor cuts need no more treatment than this, not even a bandage. Your dig will lick it, which will keep it clean, and it will heal rapidly. If there is redness and swelling, the wound is infected and you should take your dog to the vet for an antibiotic or penicillin injection.

Good Cat or Bad Cat? by Rose Long - ArticleCity.com [14 Jul 2008|06:11am]
Good Cat or Bad Cat?
 by: Rose Long
All domestic cats develop behavioral problems as their predecessors. They encounter both physical and behavioral changes. Cats are creatures of habit. They do what they need to do as their ancestors did from climbing to hunting to marking their territory. What is amusing to a cat can be an enigma for us. Some behavioral problems may be perfectly natural for a cat. Prevention is easier than cure; there are simple remedies. As a previous feline owner I have experienced most of these behavioral problems. My favorite defense was my infamous water pistol.

Cats will climb as this is one of their instincts. As a cat owner utilize implied corrections such as making a loud noise or use a water pistol. Cats will soon associate this activity with consequences. Satisfy your cats desire to climb by providing a location for this natural activity. Some cats explore certain locations out of curiosity.

Cats claw our personal items to mark their territory and to leave their original scent. Provide your cat with a scratching post to prevent damage to your furniture. Always reward them with treats as a reward for utilizing their post instead of your favorite chair or couch. Another simple remedy is to massage catnip on the post to encourage further use of it. To discourage your cat from returning to an already defaced area you can cover the area with two way tape or plastic.

Cats will stalk and can ambush your ankles from a concealed place. This can be painful! Unfortunately this is a natural predatory activity. Direct your cats need by providing proper toys that will stimulate stalking and capturing their prey. If this is unsuccessful either revert to the water pistol or throw a toy.

I recall my cats had a habit of digging in my plant pots. Attempt to keep your cat away from your plants or cover the soil with marbles or gravel. Cats hate to dig in gravel or marbles. Cats also find satisfaction with chewing on items as the actual house plant. Some house plants are poisonous and can be potentially fatal such as Lily of the Valley, Mistletoe, any flower bulb, Ivy, Rhododendron....just to name a few.

If you want to prevent a cats natural instinct to explore you must implement options. Jumping on counters or tables can be hindered by applying two sided tape or revert back to the water pistol. Offer your pet a diversion.

Outdoors offer multiple interests to a curious feline. When you open a door a cat can dash before you realize what happened. A male that is not neutered will bolt to satisfy his mating needs or they can just exit to satisfy their curiosity with all those distractions. Give them food or a toy. Distract them as you depart. With a male not neutered there is only one option....take him to the vet and get him fixed.

If your attempts at resolving your cats behavioral problems are unsuccessful, consult your vet. Maintain regular checkups to ensure there is not an underlying medical problem associated with their specific behavior. Make your vet your friend as they can refer you to a qualified cat trainer as needed. For clawing and climbing your other option is to have your feline declawed by your vet. Give the title good cat to your cat and enjoy those humerous, mischevious moments.

How to Make a Smooth Move with your Pet - Moving with Exotic Pets [01 Jul 2008|07:11pm]
How to Make a Smooth Move with your Pet - Moving with Exotic Pets
 by: Alexey Kazaryan
A lot is written how to move with dogs, cats or even fish. But what if your beloved ones are far more exotic and unusual than other people's pets, don't they need some special and accordingly unusual care during the move? If you are the lucky owner of, say, a snake or a hamster here are few suggestion for your smooth with them:
The first thing to remember when moving reptiles is to keep them moist. It can be achieved by putting a damp blanket inside a moving container for your pet. Reptiles can be packed in boxes, venomous snakes should be be double boxed. Make holes in boxes to maintain good ventilation during the move. Make the inside of the box soft for your pet by putting their foam panels, crumpled paper and pieces of cloth. Mark the box with both common and scientific names of your reptile. Be sure to write "live cargo", "this side up" and "keep at room temperature ( 70-75F)" if you'll be shipping your pet. The main danger of shipping your pet reptile is changes of temperature; a reptile can't survive in too cold or too hot surroundings and it's hardly avoidable during the move.
One of the convenient ways to move your reptile long distance is by overnight postal service, though USPS won't guarantee live delivery; they might be only liable if the box in which you were moving your pet would have been damaged, but if your beloved one baked or freezed to death you would get nothing. This method of shipping is very common for moving turtles in cushioned, insolated boxes with air holes. Nowadays, moving reptiles by airlines has become difficult due to people who were careless for shipping regulations and caused numerous accidents with their pets. Delta Dash (Delta Airline's priority cargo service) and American Airline's Priority Parcel service used to accept reptiles properly packed and clearly labelled. When moving your reptile by car don't leave it alone overnight, always take it into motel where you'll be stopping, if its pet friendly, of course, to soak your pet in a bath.
When moving small mammals like mice, gerbils, guinea pigs and hamsters, it's better to use their normal container and move them in your car. Take the water and food out of their container and use rest areas to water and feed your pets. Maintain comfortable temperature - don't park the car in the sunlight; remember whatever temperature is comfortable for you is comfortable for your beloved ones.
You also can ship your exotic pets abroad, provided they are not listed in CITES . You will need to fill out US Fish & Wildlife certificate before shipping your pets. You'll also need to provide the list of animals you're shipping with their common and scientific names and mark it on the shipping container. Also you'' need to contact your airline, that transports animals, for example Delta, to find out the procedures they demand. And make sure your pets pass Wildlife Inspection Port. Provided you took care of everything mentioned above check if the state you are moving to requires Health Certificates, Import Certificates or Value Added Tax and should they be ffixed to a pet carrier. It especially concerns countries of EU which have very strict regulations for incoming animals.

Tire Jump Foundation Training for your Dog [27 Jun 2008|06:11am]
Tire Jump Foundation Training for your Dog
 by: Brad Carlson
The Tire Jump seems like a relatively easy agility obstacle, at least from a persons perspective, but in the Novice Agility ring you see many dogs that refuse to go through it, many go under it, while others choose to go around it. How can you prepare your beginning agility for success with the Tire Jump?
Let's go back to foundation training. When introducing any new obstacle, you want to keep the difficulty low and emphasize the fun and ease that it can be for your dog. If your dog has a sit stay, leave him about 2 feet in front of the tire, facing it, walk to the other side and call your dog, "Come Tire". If he won't budge, put your hand with his treat or toy through the tire to coax him to follow your hand and jump through the tire. Practice this several times until he willing is coming to you. Keep him about 2 feet from the tire, you go to the other side and then move back about 6 feet, "Come Tire. When your dog is able to jump through the tire when you are at different distances and angles from the tire, then it is time to move him further away from the tire. Start him back 6 feet, you go to the other side about 6 feet away and call, "Come Tire". Place your dog at different distances and angles from the tire and call him to you. When your dog can succeed 80% of the time, its time to progress to make the challenge a bit harder.
Now that your dog is coming to you, it is time to teach "Go Tire". Start close to the tire again, 3 feet away, this time both you and your dog are facing the tire. Tell him "Go Tire". If he jumps through, great, step to the side and reward him. If you don't get any movement from the dog, step forward and point to the tire, "Go Jump". For some dogs this motion on your part is enough to get them up and going through the tire. If your dog still won't move, take your treat container or toy and throw through the tire, saying, "Go Tire". Repeat this many times until your dog will successfully go through the tire without you having to step toward the tire or throw his toy through the tire. If you are using a toy quickly try to get your dog to go through the tire then reward with a throw of the toy or treat container. Begin to back away from the tire, 3 feet, 6 feet, 9 feet work toward sending your dog from 30 feet away.
If you've started with a very young dog you should still have the tire height set low 8" or 12" for a good bit of your training. If your dog is older and large, now begin to move the tire height up. Go back and practice you "Come Tire" and "Go Tire" when you change the heights. As you raise the height your dog may try to go under the tire. At first you may want to setup some wire mesh or angled jump bars under the tire for your dog to realize he still needs to go through and not under the tire. When you are getting ready for competition, raise the tire slightly higher than your dog would have in the agility ring. Preparation and practice are the best training tips for succeeding in the competition ring.

Training Dogs the Lazy Way [17 Jun 2008|03:11am]
Training Dogs the Lazy Way
 by: Leonard Mutch
Have you ever found it difficult to get your dog to do as it is told? Well, today we're going to show you how to train him the lazy way, and get results every time.
Our first task is to get the dog to pay attention to us. How many times have you seen someone shout their dog's name with absolutely no response?
So, say your dog's name in a moderate voice without shouting, and if he looks at you say something like "Good!" as praise and reward him with a treat. Repeat this a few times, but cutting out the treat on occasions. We don't want an overweight pooch who only does things for food. When this exercise has been repeated successfully several times we can make it harder by getting the dog to pay attention for longer, maybe 15 seconds before praising and giving a reward. If your dog approaches you in an effort to see where you are hiding any treats it's best just to ignore him.
When we've mastered this we can try it in different locations and with different family members calling his name and commanding attention. Just make sure that whoever is in control gives the praise and treat.
Calling your dog's name and getting a response quickly and every time is the 1st stage in getting your dog to do almost anything, as once you have his attention you can move onto the next step in your dog's training. From feeding time to going out for walks use your dog's name on every occasion, but remember to be sparing with the treats, and eventually try to cut them down to a minimum as a special reward.

I'm honestly not that great when it comes to hair; just straighten it and I'm ready to go. I'm really getting sick of this, not to mention that my hair style's really grown out. I'd really like advice on what kind of haircut I should get, or how to style my hair a certain way, or really any hair advice!

Hello I'm looking into changing my hair color and cut. I was thinking blond. DO you think it would look better with full color vs. highligts, what about cut? I want to grow it out so I don't want to take length off.

Hair Help! [03 Aug 2006|12:58am]

Hi! I'm sarah.

Lately I've been bored with my hair. It's long, and it's hot outside, so the first thing that came to mind was "get a haircut".

I'm just having a bit of a dilemma. Part of me wants to be bold and daring and get it shorter and get side swept bangs, but part of me is so scared to let go of the long hair. Also because I'm not super skinny, I'm afraid shorter hair would look weird on me.

Any help anyone could give me would be great.

dividing hair into sections when cutting it [28 Jul 2006|01:56pm]

I recently got my hair cut and did not have a very good experience so I am getting it fixed tomorrow. I did have a question though.

I have very thick hair that is cut to about my chin. Everytime I've gotten it cut that I can ever imagine, whether my hair was really long or short the stylist would always divide it into sections and pin those up on top of my head. This last time, the stylist did not do that and I really didn't give it a thought until I got home. Is there any reason why she would not have divided my hair into sections before cutting it?

I see that this community is not very active, but I don't know where else to go for something like this.

I had my hair short. I was brave last summer and cut my waist length hair off to get this look..

First timeCollapse )

It was growing out to the point where I couldn't flip it, but I decided I wanted to let it grow back out. So I played with it until I found a semi decent hairstyle that would look nice and not give me the "I'm a guy trying to grow my hair out." look. (Because many people mistook me as a boy)

Semi niceCollapse )

Ring dance came along in mid-November, and I freaked out because I didn't know what to do so I got dumb for a day and cut my hair again, but this time.. shorter..

Shorter hairCollapse )

Now it's like this... it's not a good picture but its the est I can produce (sorry)

The friend and I were making fun of stereotypes..Collapse )

Doing it in the half up half down look isn't working out for me because the bottom started poofing out because it got longer (which is good though), so I'm left with two options, keep it slicked back in a pony tail or let it stay down. I tried fliping it out subtly but it's hard for me to do because I don't own a rounded brush. If you could give me some ideas or pictures that would be very much appreciated. =] Thanks ♥

I have natural auburn hair. However, I wanted to try to dye it back so it was a BIT more fun red, sort of like how it was when I was really young.

I went out and bought this: http://www.walgreens.com/store/product.jsp?CATID=100663&navAction=jump&navCount=1&id=prod9748

Freakin' product turned the top half of my head a deep purplish color and the bottom half an... almost uglier color. What the hell? How can I get this color out QUICKLY? This is my first time dealing with a permanent dye.

Anyone? Please. I'm desperate.
