Medical research has shown that “silver promotes rapid healing”

 

Chelated silver, as opposed to just plain silver, means that submicroscopic silver particles are suspended in a liquid base. Because the silver particles are so tiny, they can penetrate cells and kill pathogens.

In fact, these particles are small enough to destroy pathogens of all types, including bacteria, fungal spores, parasites, and viruses.

It is highly effective against bacteria, viruses, and fungal organisms, even when they’ve become resistant to antibiotics.

It looks like that there are no pathogens, germs, fungus or bacteria that can develop resistance to this miraculous silver solution.

Silver was used by ancient Egyptians, Romans, Greeks, sailors, and then by American pioneers. They didn’t understand it, but Ancient Greeks and Egyptians knew that silver had amazing powers to heal. It was one of the original medical treatments that actually worked.

More than two thousand years later, silver ion is still used as a highly valued healing treatment.

 

It is a liquid antibiotic, anti-viral and anti-fungal that has been touted as treating and preventing an assortment of conditions in both humans and animals.

Research proves it

In 1978, Science Digest reported the results of extensive research and clinical studies into the uses of silver. These studies proved that silver is a potent killer of 650 live tested organisms.

More research, this time performed at UCLA Medical Labs, verified these findings, and supported just how effective silver is against a variety of live viruses.

It’s that time again – dogs in hot cars

It’s that time again – dogs in hot cars

Dogs can’t sweat much, so dog overheating in the summer can be a serious problem – even life threatening. And dogs in hot cars? How many more times do we have to read, “dog dies in hot car” ? It’s crazy.

Even a short time in a hot car can be deadly. A dog’s normal body temperature is about 39°C (102.2°F) If the dog’s temperature gets up to 41°C (105.8°F), irreversible brain damage and death can occur quickly. Just a 2 degree difference between life and death.

Top 7 stupidest excuses to leave a dog in the car on a hot day

  1. The sun’s not even out
  2. I left the window open
  3. I only ran in for a  minute
  4. I left the car running
  5. I’ll keep my eye on him
  6. It’s not too hot for me
  7. I parked in the shade

 

 

First Aid

If you suspect your Morkie might have heat stroke, (excessive panting and drooling, listlessness or unconsciousness) get IMMEDIATE veterinary attention.

In the meantime, wet him down immediately with lukewarm to cool water, not cold water. Bring your dog into the shade and offer drinking water.

Laws are changing around dogs in hot cars

Eleven states have “Good Samaritan” hot car laws, allowing for private citizens to break into a car to save a pet. Most of the laws require that the person must first try to find the vehicle’s owner and contact law enforcement before attempting to break in. In nearly all the Good Samaritan states, the rescuer isn’t responsible for damages, however, in Indiana, the person is liable for one-half the cost of repairs.

Good Samaritan laws apply here:

Arizona
California
Colorado
Florida
Indiana
Massachusetts
Ohio
Oregon
Tennessee
Vermont
Wisconsin

Hot asphalt is a thing too

 When the air is 77 degrees, the asphalt can quickly heat up to 125!

At 87 degrees air temperature, the pavement can go up to 143 degrees!

 


And from Dogtime, some helpful information:

If you have been walking on hot pavement with your dog, look for these signs that their paws are burned or injured.

Limping or attempting to stop walking.

Licking or chewing at paw pads.

Darkening of skin on or around paw pads.

Blisters, peeling, or redness.

Any kind of damage to the bottom of the paws.

Let's make this the last year of dogs left in hot cars

 

See it? Report it!

Call 9-1-1 to report a dog locked in a car on a hot day.  Are you allowed to break the windows if the dog’s in visible distress? Legally, no, in some places even the police can’t. Would that stop most of us? No.

Pledge you'll never do it

There’s never a reason to leave your dog in a hot car. “Just running in to the store” or “I’ll leave my a/c on” …  Just not worth the chance. Don’t leave dogs in hot cars. Simple, right?

Spread the word

Remind friends nad family that leaving your dog in the car’s not cool.

Why does my Morkie dog eat goose poop?

Why does my Morkie dog eat goose poop?

You’re enjoying a nice walk along the lakeside and your Morkie stops to eat goose poop. Why do dogs eat goose poop? And, how do you stop a dog who eats goose poop?

Canada Geese on grass

There’s a scientific name for eating poop—coprophagia (kop-ruh-fey-jee-uh) and it’s not unusual. Some dogs eat their own poop as often as they can. Other dogs enjoy a more exotic poop, such as Canada Goose sh*t.

Although eating goose poop isn’t a hugely dangerous habit, it’s a nasty one that we people aren’t too fond of. Goose poop  (all poop) can carry Salmonella and E.Coli but luckily, the digestive tracts of most healthy dogs are good at destroying these bacteria.

Health risks for your dog of eating goose poop include:

  • chance of picking up giardia
  • can be at risk for salmonella
  • could pick up Campylobacter bacteria

These risks can mean diarrhea in dogs.

 

Yes you could catch it too

Human Campylobacter infection happens for people if we:

  • consume raw milk, undercooked chicken or any food that’s been contaminated during preparation
  • you can also catch it directly from your dog
  • dogs mostly get it from infected feces

About Canada Geese

Canada gooseEnvironment Canada lists the geese as being “a significant safety threat” to aviation, and a problem in local parks, pastures, golf courses and any other grassy area.

Nesting Canada geese are aggressive and will attack children and dogs. (Tip: don’t look the goose in the eye; drop your gaze and walk away slowly).

Goose droppings are expensive to clean up from parks and grasslands. According to Canada’s Federal government, at least goose poop has NOT been linked yet any health concerns for humans.

In 2009, a US Airways A320 Airbus flew into a flock of Canada Geese shortly before losing both engines and splashing down onto New York’s Hudson River. Fortunately, all 155 passengers and crew survived.

How to stop your Morkie from eating goose poop

The best thing to do, if you have a dog who tries to eat poop, is to teach him/her the ‘leave it’ command. You yelling at him to stop, if he doesn’t know these commands, just makes him eat the “treat” all the faster.

Teaching ‘leave it’ isn’t hard, but there are a number of steps, so I’m suggesting you check out either of these two sites where you can see how it’s done:
