Top 10 Misconceptions About Dog Health and Care

1. Nothing needs to be done with a small wound on the dog’s body – it will lick it.

In fact, the dog’s oral cavity is a breeding ground for germs, and if she licks the wound herself, this will increase the risk of suppuration and delay healing at least twice. In such cases, the wound should be treated, and a protective collar should be put on the dog to prevent licking.

2. The dosage of anthelmintic drugs depends on the age of the dog.

3. The smell from the dog’s mouth is normal because it doesn’t brush its teeth.

How to make a puppy’s life comfortable in your home?

The puppy you have chosen, in addition to instincts and temperament features, already has its own life experience. While it is still very small, but it already includes communication with both like oneself and with a person. The little doggie well understood that mom is food, warmth, care and protection. Brothers and sisters are not only partners in games, but also competitors, in communication with whom hierarchical behavior is first demonstrated. Puppies also perceive the familiar people who look after the bitch and her litter positively – as a source of food, attention, affection and fun.

It is proved that tiny puppies remember the touch of a person’s hands, its smell and warmth from the very first days of life. On the contrary, having received pain and discomfort from a person, babies begin to avoid it, reacting as a potential threat. In other words, the very first communication experience is of great importance for the formation of the necessary mental reactions and positive interaction with a person. Therefore, as I said, it is important to choose the right not only a good puppy, but also a worthy breeder. Continue reading
