Dog Myths Clarified

There are several dog theories running around and for us pet parents, it can be confusing and frustrating finding out what's real and what's just an old wives' tale. Allow us to help clarify some of the most common dog myths --


Myth # 1. Table scraps are ok for Pepito. 

Nope. Table scraps are not okay; we can't seem to stress this enough. Human food should not
be given to our furry babies as they are not nutritionally sufficient.  Plus, dishes that are sauteed with garlic and onion and other spices are really bad for our furry babies. They contain compounds that damage our pet's red blood cells.  

Myth # 2. Dogs only eat grass when they're sick. 7173725141 19d50f9657 o

We remember panicking upon seeing Pepito eat grass all of a sudden.  Who hasn't heard this myth that its their "natural way of curing" themselves, or that it's their way of making themselves vomit?   But recent studies show that less than 25% of dogs who eat grass actually vomit and that less than 10% are actually sick.  There's also a study that shows that dogs actually like the taste of grass! So unless your grass is treated with hazardous chemicals or sprayed with fertilizers, don't fret when you see your furry baby munching on some greens.

Myth # 3. Pepito's nose is dry. That means he's sick!

There are several possible reasons why his nose is dry.  Having a dry nose does not necessarily mean he's sick, for instance, lying in the sun makes their noses dry. Or if they're stayed all night in a cold airconditioned room. Having a dry nose may also indicate dehydration.  If it's flaky, then it could be that he's sunburned. When checking his nose, check out if he has any mucus.  If so, it should be clear. Any color other than that, go check out a veterinarian.

Myth # 4. 
It's okay to leave Pepito inside the car as long as you crack the windows open.

Never, ever do this please.  Especially in our country where each day is almost a constant battle with the overwhelming heat, leaving your furry baby even for a few minutes inside a car is similar to putting him in an oven.


Myth # 5. It's okay to use my (human) soap and shampoo on Pepito.

A dog's pH balance is different than human skin.  We're more acidic compared to our furry babies. c208ca3c71f67eccd8ff925
 the shampoos made for us are intended to balance this acidity off.  So if we use our soaps and shampoos on our furry babies, we are actually damaging their skin.  This can result to an accumulation of bacteria, parasites and viruses.  What sometimes happens is because of this damage, the scent of our furry babies goes bad more quickly, so we'll end up washing them more with human soap/shampoo, causing further damage.  To avoid this, look for organic soap and shampoo specifically formulated for our furry babies.  We recommend using Pup Organics Soap and Shampoo amde specifically for our furry babies using natural glycerin.


Myth # 6. Giving him garlic will kill worms and fleas.

We've said this before and it's worth repeating, given the amount of controversy on this issue.  Garlic and onions are bad for your furry babies.  No matter how much of a miracle drug garlics are known to be for humans, they can be bad for dogs. They may damage their red blood cells.  We say to be cautious.  While there hasn't been a definitive study yet that we know of on teh benefits of garlic, there have been claims of its possible dangers.  Plus, depending on who you read and listen to, opinions on this issue vary.  So better be cautious and avoid garlic for now. 


Myth # 7. He stays indoors, so I don't need to give him heartworm medication.  

Uh, no. No matter how spotless and clean your house is, chances are, there's an open window or an opening somewhere that mosquittos can enter into.  And if tthey see your furry baby, they see a generous amount of food supply.  If you're furrybaby is infected, its an expensive and long process to get him better again.  So let's try to prevent what we can, shall we?


Myth # 8. My dog's mouth is cleaner than my boyfriends'.1280px-Licking dogWe can't really speak about your boyfriend's, but your furry baby may have licked the floor, tires, garage, his butt, etc. So while the bacteria in his mouth is dog-specific and won't affect you, you may get worms.  Again, let's err on the side of caution and limit our mouth-to-mouth kisses. 

Myth # 9. Pepito is color blind. imagesNot true.  Although dogs can't see colors as brilliantly as we can, they can see different colors, like blue, red and yellow.  (That's why our logo is blue and yellow!)  But don't expect them to identify between the different hues per color. 

Myth # 10. Pepito's age is his human years times 7.  

A more accurate computation of your furry baby's age is provided below:

Essentially, the table above shows that your furry baby ages faster during his earlier years, then succeding on the third year, they grown older by four years for each human year after. 

These are the 10 myths we've compiled for you guys.

    Здравствуйте, девочки, девушки, женщины!))
    Не думала, что решусь рассказать кому-то свою историю, но в моей ситуации может оказаться кто угодно, а совет однозначно пригодится. Итак, все началось несколько месяцев назад…

    Муж ко мне охладел,секс со мной больше не приносил ему удовольствие, причем корень проблем был именно в физиологии. Мои мышцы не сокращались должным образом из-за чего ощущения были уже не те. Муж так и сказал: “молодые мышцы держат крепче”.

    Конечно, возраст, отсутствие физической активности и тот факт, что я рожала дважды с небольшим перерывом, - все это негативно сказалось на моих влагалищных мышцах. Признаться, я и сама обращала внимание на некоторые тревожные симптомы: сухость слизистой, давление на мочевой пузырь, тянущие боли при ходьбе, какое-то хлюпанье во время полового акта. Но мне не приходило в голову связать все это с растянутыми мышцами!

    Долго не решалась обратиться к гинекологу с этой проблемой. Но желание хотя бы попытаться исправить ситуацию взяли верх. Врач выслушала меня внимательно, даже бровью не повела и сказала, что такая проблема у 8 из 10 женщин старше 30 лет! И сейчас, к счастью, все решается. Причем без всяких операций и опасных процедур, а с помощью современного средства VirginStar

    Мы провели просто незабываемую ночь! Серьезно!!! Ничего подобного за 11 лет брака у нас никогда не было! Если честно, даже в молодости таких ощущений от секса я не испытывала. Вот такой волшебный оказался крем .

    Муж, конечно, спросил у меня, что именно я сделала, чтобы секс стал доставлять такое удовольствие. Но я решила не открывать тайну - пусть думает, что такие финты в постели могу проделывать только я))) И, надо сказать, он именно так и считает. Мой любимый кремик VirginStar подарил буквально второй медовый месяц. Теперь каждый день мой супруг не только не задерживается на работе, а даже старается уйти пораньше, чтобы поскорее добраться до дома и до меня… О чем еще мечтать?!

    Вот такая история со мной произошла. Но вы не ждите, девочки, не доводите до распада семьи! Ведь так просто заказать Virgin Star и стать для своего мужчины магнитом. Да и сами вы точно не пожалеете, что воспользовались кремом))) Вот вам ссылочка, будьте здоровы и желанны!

    Roller Door Servicing & Maintenance in Adelaide
    As with many mechanical devices, it is recommended that your garage door be serviced every 1-2 years depending on how frequently the door is used, environmental conditions etc. This helps prevent breakdowns and of course avoids inconvenience.

    Over time, springs lose tension, dirt and grime builds up in the guides, buildings move and motor parts wear. We’ll take the time to correctly service your door, as opposed to just fixing the problem. We gladly offer our customers a call back option where we will contact you when your door is next due for its service.

    A couple of things you can do to extend the life of your door include:
    Keep the tracks clean at all times
    Lubricate the tracks – this should NEVER be done with grease or oil! Only Silicon sprayed should be used – spray a little on the tracks and then wipe through with a clean rag.
    So... should you door be due (or overdue!) for some tender loving care, give our friendly team a call at Fast Fix Roller Doors and we will have you booked in within days and your door back up and running the way it should be!

    Call us today to arrange an appointment: (08) 8182 5787 doors
