Advice on Weight Gain after Neutering


If an animal increases weight after being spayed or neutered please contact Denes Petcare Products regarding herbal remedies and diet at www.denes.com

 

Fleas

A veterinary nurse says that the flea sprays and powders from the vets should be used sparingly and it is wise to avoid getting the treatment in the animals' ears, nose or throat. An animal has to have reached a certain age before the sprays can be used. The directions on the sprays advise only spraying the animal for a few seconds. There are also sprays available especially for the treatment of infested carpets and furniture etc. These sprays are extremely dangerous to fish and birds and we suggest you remove them from the room before using the spray or to cover the top of the fish tank. Please read all the directions on the sprays or powders carefully.

It's said that fleas live 99% of the time in carpets, furnishings etc, so the home needs treating too. A friend who has several dogs uses the minimal amount of treatment on them, but more on the home. It's advisable to leave a room that has been treated with these sprays closed for about 1/2 an hour and then ventilate the room well. "Flea-Flea" (by "LORAX") herbal sprays and shampoos (available from pet shops) is non-poisonous. (The spray for animals coats needs to be dries off shortly after applying it, as it leaves the coat wet.) Unlike a lot of the stronger flea sprays. "Flea –Flea" doesn't kill the eggs of the fleas, so can be used once every 3 days, for 9 days, to ensure the new fleas are killed.

Rubbing raw garlic onto the coats of animals can help to prevent fleas, also raw garlic given in an animals food, can help prevent worms. (Please see note in paragraph three about not giving garlic to animals suffering certain ailments) DENES pet-care products sell excellent herbal remedies for animals, including garlic tablets and a garlic spray. Their remedies are available at most pet shops, and they have free booklets giving the list of ailments and remedies, and advice for the ailments.

Home-made insect repellents

How can you rid your dog of fleas without resorting to life-threatening chemicals? Here are a few tips that people say have worked for them:

1. Garlic - many people contend that a crushed clove of real garlic added to your dog's food has a twofold effect: first, it boosts the dog's immune system thereby making them less attractive to fleas, and second, it produces a smell in the dog that fleas don't like.

2. A natural raw meaty bone diet renders a dog less liable to flea infestation. Again, this diet boosts the immune system. Fleas and worms go together, and by feeding a natural diet, you dispense with the mucousy toxic stuff in pet food that hangs around in the gut and allows the worms to thrive.

3. Suppliment with vitamins and minerals. According to CHC panel member Alfred Plechner, a dog who is given a complete vitamin and mineral supplement is virtually flea-proof. Chlorella or Klamath Lake Algae are good supplements in this respect.

4. Rev Debra L Moore, DN, says that a combination of rasemary and eucalyptus oil in a vodka or witch hazel carrier are superb bug repellents. Just about 4-5 drops each into a small (8oz) spray bottle.

5. Dr Moore also makes a flea/tick collar using a braid of jute or any natural pliable fabric inter-weave basil, rosemary and/or fennel into the braid for an attractive and functional effect. In a glass bowl mix 70% eucalyptus oil, 20% citronella oil, and 10% pennyroyal oil (use caution with this if the animal is pregnant or a small breed). Dip the collar into the oil or put the oil on with an eyedropper. Hang to air dry. Tie loosely around the animals neck. When smell dissipates, replenish the oils.

6. To remove flea larvae, sprinkle salt on the floor and carpet, making sure to get into the corners, and leave for 30 minutes before hoovering up. Wash bedding, adn apply salt to sofas and chairs if your pet sits on these. Hoover thoroughly, of course.

7. Juliette de Bairacli Levy recommends a lemon lotion: save all used lemon halves and place them in a gallon container (24 halves to one gallon). Place the jar in hot sunlight and pour hot water over the lemon. Leave until lemons grow mouldy, and replace with fresh lemons after squeezing all juice out of old ones. Rub the lotion into all parts of the dog's body to expel skin vermin. Keep the jar covered with paper.

8. A number of herbal shampoos are now available in shops or via dog magazines. Make sure you check the labels thoroughly and investigate any words you do not understand.

The Importance of Worming Animals

Prevent Unwanted Pets heard of a puppy, given to a sanctuary to be rehomed, which was so full of worms that the vet could do nothing for it and had to put it to sleep.

Adult dogs and cats should be wormed every six months, and pups and kittens at four weeks, eight weeks, and twelve weeks old and then every six months. An adult cat that is a hunter should be wormed every four months.

It is always important to read the directions for the dosage of worm tablets, as too big a dosage could be dangerous. Vets give doses according to the age and weight of the animal. It is best to get worming tablets from your vet rather than fron a shop due to the strength of the tablets from the vets, pet-shops are only allowed to stock worm tablets of a minimal strength. A veterinary nurse advises that a natural diet which includes garlic will prevent worms and fleas. However, it should be noted that it is inadvisable to give garlic to animals suffering from liver, gall and bile duct ailments until these ailments (where possible) are corrected. Remember to always consult your vet.

ADDITIVES:

Some animals can be made hyperactive due to the additives in such things as some dog/cat food; chew sticks with colourings in, certain mixes and biscuits. It's also said that additives can cause some physical ailments. Foods for human consumption have to, by law, have the ingredients listed on the packaging, including a list of all additives, but there is no such law for foods for animals.

A friend who is a Dog -Trainer told me that sometimes they have dogs taken to the training club that arc almost "going up the ceiling with hyper-activity. It's explained to their owners that there could be one or more causes of this, including additives, the nature of the dog, or stress or trauma of some sort. My friend said that if ills due to additives, after about 3 days of having an additive-free diet, the dogs are calm and relaxed. Some foods without additives (according to their manufacturers):

Happy-Dog Vegetarian Dog Food

Spillers
Shapes
Winalot
Mixer
Omega
Febo

(A dog can be vegetarian, but a cat has to have meat or fish, although it is said that there's a vegetarian food for cats available in the USA.) "Happy-dog" can be made extra tasty with vegetable gravy, yeast extract, lentils etc.
