Fragrant Nature India

Fragrant Nature India
Undoubtedly it’s India’s budget beachside bamboo huts and the (delicious every time) 10p roadside chais which largely account for its charm; but not everyone travelling India is staying on a shoestring, and for those Fragrant Nature Retreat, Kollam (Kerala) is well worth checking into. With second and third sites opening in the stylish Fort Kochi and jungle-deep Munnar in January 2016; Fragrant Nature Retreat is a secluded haven, peacefully overlooking Kerala’s famed backwaters, offering its guests respite in the form of sunrise yoga, Ayeuverdic care, swimming pool, gym, incredible food, riverside bar, restaurant, peddle boats (the best being in the form of a giant swan), and unrivalled sunset views of fishermen towing that day’s catch. At Fragrant Nature I felt the squeakiest clean and most refreshed I’ve felt in months – but the retreat is so much more than that… Each of the staff at Fragrant Nature are exceptional.

Preventing and Removing Ticks From Dogs If your dog spends a lot of time outdoors, he's at high risk of picking up ticks–those multi-legged, disease-carrying parasites that like to hide in the fur and attach themselves to the skin. Learning proper tick removal and ways of preventing ticks in the first place are crucial for stopping the spread of disease not only to your dog but to yourself and your family. Dangers of Ticks Although such a tiny insect might seem harmless at first glance, the American Kennel Club Canine Health Foundation (AKCCHF) estimates that thousands of dogs are infected each year with tick-borne diseases, such as Lyme disease, canine ehrlichiosis, canine anaplasmosis, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever, some of which are transmissible to humans. Tick bites can also become infected and cause soreness and parasitic dermatitis, especially when the tick hasn't been properly removed. Keep an eye on your dog.

Do Dogs Really Understand What Humans Say? They've been our closest companions for thousands of years. They live with us, work with us, and even become part of our families, but can dogs understand our words and emotions?
