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.

    Приветствую люди добрые.
    Не так давно у меня были большие траблы в связи с отсутствием постоянного заработка денег.
    Я молодая студентка но найти себе богатого папика особо нету желания. Стала искать возможности заработка в нете и натолкнулась на один очень интересный веб ресурс. Вам сюда сайт для заработка

    Суть сводится к тому, что мне необходимо создавать описание адалт видео роликов и за это мне платят деньги. Это абсолютно легальный сайт и отзывы о нем необычайно лестные.
    Решилась попробовать, прошла проверочку (надо сделать на проверку пять описаний и модер их проверив дает добро на трудовую деятельность).
    Оплата сперва была не очень впечатляющей - платили по восемь рубасиков за каждый новый пост, но в процессе своей трудовой деятельности я сначала вышла на доход в 10 рублей за новость - описав более двухсот порно клипов, а на сегодня уже получаю по двенадцать рубасиков так как перешла на рубеж в три тысячи новостей дрочит член и кончает ананист при бабушке
    ...
    Что самое интересное и к чему я усилено стремлюсь - это описать более пяти тысяч клипов и стать модером на данном ресурсе с уже установленной зарплатой и бонусами...
    Выплаты делаются стабильно и постоянно после написания пятидесяти роликов порно сын и доч
    , по этому об этом беспокоиться не стоит...
    Свои 500-700 рублей в день я зарабатываю стабильно и мне покуда хватает на свои нужды...
    Если есть желание - вступайте. сюда

    Всем удачи!!!

    Last tenebrousness was our third SEMNE affair (Search Machine Marketing Recent England), and we were humbled to cause Dan Crow, overseer of drag systems at Google, spilling the beans yon how to get your position into Google. He talked with a view a half hour or so, and then proceeded to fit audience questions in search at least another hour. As I sat there listening to him (yes, I absolutely listened to this a man!), I was struck by what an awesome opening it was quest of each in that dwelling to be provided with such important tidings — even from Google. It was lucid that the 100 or so people in the cubicle quarters agreed. In event, at 7:30 on the decimal point, harry spontaneously stopped their networking activities and wholly took their seats without being asked to. These folks definitely came to agree Google!
