December 24, 2013 at 9:25 pm The only Black Friday Sale I took advantage of last month was the one offered by Tawzer Dog. I got Lori Steven’s TTouch Walking In Balance DVD and last week I finished watching all 3 discs. Lori Stevens is fantastic and the seminar was so interesting and enlightening that now I wish I had ordered the first TTouch DVD too! Last year I had tried to read Linda Tellington-Jones’s TTouch book after Boogie’s intro TTouch session with Cynde. To be honest, it was hard to take in and retain all this information from the book without having more tangible experiences. I am the sort of person who needs to see and feel how something is done (vs only reading about it) – and watching Lori Stevens’ DVD has rekindled my desire to learn more about TTouch.

Also – the fact that TTouch was developed by Linda Tellington-Jones from Feldenkrais is something that I find really exciting. To quote Lori Stevens, TTouch and Feldenkrais are both “neuromuscular retraining programs”. Fluoxetine Treats a Range of Behavioral Issues in Animals. By Nicholas Dodman, BVMS, Dipl. ACVB Posted: April, 3, 2013, 3:45 p.m. EDT By now, almost everyone has heard about Prozac, though the veterinary brand name Reconcile is less well recognized. Personally, I prefer prescribing Reconcile to manage certain behavior problems because it is licensed for use in dogs, is especially designed for use in dogs in a palatable formulation, and lists the correct canine dosing and side effects on the enclosed data sheets.

One problem is that Reconcile is somewhat expensive and finds itself in competition with off extra-label generic fluoxetine. Fluoxetine is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). Fluoxetine ActionsTwo other actions of fluoxetine, as opposed to other SSRIs, are that it is a potent 5-HT2C antagonist and a sigma-1 receptor agonist. Another purported action of fluoxetine and other SSRIs is to stimulate neurogenesis (maturation of progenitor neurons) in the dentate gyrus of the hippocampus.

Bacteria in Dog Dust May Protect Children Against Asthma and Allergies. It’s all about dogs, dust and microbes. Scientists have long known that kids who grow up with a pet, like a dog or cat, or live on a farm with plenty of livestock are less likely to develop asthma or allergies. They didn’t know what exactly protected these kids, but speculated that it had something to do with the “hygiene hypothesis” — the idea that modern lifestyles are too clean and therefore our immune systems aren’t exposed to enough bacteria, viruses and parasites (the kind that likely hitch rides in pet hair) to build up proper immunity.

Now, researchers think they are getting closer to a possible explanation. (MORE: Study: Why Dogs and Cats Make Babies Healthier) A team of researchers from the University of Michigan exposed a group of mice to dust from a dog owner’s home, then doused them and a population of mice who weren’t given dog dust to two asthma-related allergens (including cockroach compounds).

Ask The Vet! Week 14: Health Effects Of Spay & Neutering, Viral Warts, Hyper... Dear Cristina, This is a very good question. Our knowledge about the issues surrounding neutering is increasing, as more studies examine disease incidence in neutered and non-neutered (intact) animals. We are realizing that surgical removal of the gonads (gonadectomy) - spaying or ovariohysterectomy in females, and castration in males - is not the universally benign procedure that veterinarians and pet owners have believed.

A study in February 2013 compared the incidence of joint disease and cancers in Golden Retrievers: This generated a lot of discussion in the veterinary world, and a very good summary appeared in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association: There have been numerous other studies exploring the link between neutering and disease incidence. Regards, Sara.

Bad behavior: the big picture Happy New Year! Did a new dog join the family this holiday season? Are you aiming to start a brand-new year with fine habits and manageable goals?

Is this the time to tackle your dog's problem behaviors, the ones that have had you perplexed? A solid foundation in positive training gets you off to great start, either with that new puppy or with your older dog. Reason #1: Not Enough Exercise Dogs need physical exercise to be happy, and on-leash walks around the block are not usually sufficient. Reason #2: Not Enough Mental Stimulation Mentally stimulating puzzle toys help eliminate boredom and keep dogs out of mischief. Often-forgotten mental stimulation is essential for a well-balanced dog. Reason #3: Health Problems Health problems cause behavior issues more often than people realize; health issues are often missed. Reason #4: Genetic Issues Sometimes behavior issues have genetic causes.

Reason #5: Inconsistent Environment Reason #7: Changes in Routine. Wolf to Dog - Scientists Agree on How, but Not Where. In What Ways Do Dogs and Their Owners Resemble Each Other?

Le chien descend du loup, c'est sûr. Mais des loups, il y en a sur les cinq continents : alors d'où vient le chien ?

(Photo : Reuters) C’est un drôle de débat qui fait rage sur les origines du chien et qui a pris une nouvelle tournure hier, avec la publication d’une étude dans Science. Tout le monde s’entend sur le «comment» — les chiens descendent de loups qui ont commencé à suivre des chasseurs-cueilleurs qui abattaient de très grands animaux et qui, ne pouvant pas prendre toute la viande, en laissaient derrière eux —, mais la question est de savoir «où» : en Europe ou en Asie ?

Et ce qui m’intrigue un brin, c’est que rien de ce que j’ai vu n’exclut vraiment une origine multiple (Europe et Asie), mais les positions des deux écoles semblent malgré cela très campées. Mais voilà, une équipe internationale menée par le biologiste de UCLA Robert Wayne vient de publier dans Science une autre analyse de matériel génétique qui pointe plutôt vers l’Europe. M.

Despite the fact that recent studies have reevaluated hierarchy models and have modified our understanding of behavior in the wild wolf, the concept of a hierarchal relationship among dogs and humans continues to be perpetuated. To ensure a well functioning family group, a family needs to know more about canine behavior than outdated strategies focusing on pack structure. In fact recent research has clearly indicated that the longstanding theory which maintained that alpha wolves control through aggression and relentless management is more myth than fact.

These theories have been refuted by wolf biologists and if this theory is no longer considered true for wolves, then how can it be considered true for our dogs? New research on canine learning patterns indicates dogs understand us far better than we understand them. How do wolves behave in the packs? Aren't dogs just like wolves? Aren't dogs just trying to be in charge? Pack Leadership Rules: myth or fact? 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Tips & Tricks | Dog Levee Dish. Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal condition caused by parasitic worms living in the arteries of the lungs and occasionally in the right side of the heart of dogs, cats and other species of mammals, including wolves, foxes, ferrets, sea lions and (in rare instances) humans. Heartworms are classified as nematodes (roundworms) and are filarids, one of many species of roundworms.

Dogs and cats of any age or breed are susceptible to infection. History The first published description of heartworm in dogs in the United States appeared more than 100 years ago in an issue of "The Western Journal of Medicine and Surgery. "1 Heartworm in cats was first described in the early 1920’s.2, 3 Since then, naturally acquired heartworm infection in cats and dogs is identified as a worldwide clinical problem.

Quand vous nourrissez cru il y a environ entre 18% et 20% de protéines, les protéines sont excellente et ne viennent pas de sous produits de farines etc, dans la moulée il y en a avec différent taux de protéines souvent les vétérinaire vont vous dire qu'un haut taux de protéines est dangereux pour les riens, ce n'est pas le taux de protéines qui est dangereux mais bien la provenance et la qualité de celle-ci. voici d'une discussion que j'ai eu avec un membre du groupe de la discussion voici des liens sur le sujet qui pourrait vous éclairer et A. Unless your veterinarian has told you your pet has a kidney problem and it is severe enough to adjust the protein intake, you can feed your pet a high protein diet without worrying about 'damaging' or 'stressing' your pet's kidneys. En gros ca dit ceci: Bon weekend! Do Owners and Their Dogs Have Similar Personalities? 10 Foods Sold in the U.S. That Are Banned Elsewhere | OracleTalk.

This Article First Appeared At Americans are slowly realizing that food sold in the US doesn’t just taste different than foods sold in other countries, it’s created differently. Sadly, many U.S. foods are BANNED in Europe — and for good reason. Take a look at the plummeting health of Americans; what role might toxic foods play in our skyrocketing disease rates? Below are 10 American foods that are banned elsewhere. #1: Farm-Raised Salmon Farm-raised fish is usually fed an unnatural diet of genetically engineered (GE) grains, antibiotics and chemicals unsafe for humans. To mask the resulting grayish flesh, they’re given toxic and potentially eyesight-damaging synthetic astaxanthin. To determine wild from farm-raised salmon (sold in most restaurants), wild sockeye gets its red color from natural astaxanthin and carotenoids. Avoid “Atlantic Salmon.” Where it’s banned: Australia and New Zealand #2: Genetically Engineered Papaya Where it’s banned: The European Union #8: Olestra/Olean.

Comportement: une question d'environnement | Stéphanie Vallet | Animaux. Les tests de comportement sont largement utilisés: en cas de morsure, la Ville peut demander une évaluation par un vétérinaire, et certaines compagnies d'assurances ont une liste noire sur laquelle figurent notamment le rottweiler, le doberman et le berger allemand - et elles demandent aussi ce genre d'évaluation. Néanmoins, sachez qu'il n'existe pas de test magique permettant de prédire l'avenir et de savoir comment votre animal se comportera une fois dans sa nouvelle maison. «Les tests de comportement vont donner une idée du tempérament du chien, mais il s'agit seulement d'une idée de la façon d'être du chien au moment présent, dans ce lieu-là, au moment de l'évaluation. Quand on me fait évaluer des chiens pour les assurances, je le fais, mais ce n'est pas sérieux!» , lance l'éducateur canin Jean Lessard. En effet, c'est l'environnement et le mode de vie qui vont le plus modifier les comportements et le tempérament d'un chien.
