...Let me tell you a story about old dog incontinence. Jane Smith's beloved old pet has suddenly started dribbling urine. She's finding puddles of urine all over the house. The fur on her dog's bottom is wet from the constant dribbling, and the odor is overwhelming. She fears the worst, thinking that there is no cure for urinary incontinence in dogs. She's afraid it's the end of the line for her beloved friend.
Why Is My Older Dog Incontinent?
There are many causes for this condition. The two most common conditions that cause old dog incontinence are bladder or urinary tract infections, or a weak bladder sphincter.
Bladder infections in dogs are a leading cause of old dog incontinence, especially in females. Your vet may want to do a urine culture to make sure it's an infection and determine what's causing it. Most urinary tract infections in dogs are cause by E. coli or staph, although sometimes they can be caused by a yeast infection.
A weak bladder sphincter is common in large female dogs that have been spayed and in older male dogs. The muscles in the sphincter relax, either due to hormone imbalance or advancing age.
How Does Your Vet Treat Urinary Incontinence In Dogs?
Bladder infections in dogs are normally treated with antibiotics. Your dog will usually show an...
...Dogs and the Holocaust
It is said that dog is man’s best friend. For decades dogs have served as a human companion used for hunting and guarding. They are also aides for people with disabilities to improve their health-related quality of life. More recently, dogs are even being used in psychological recovery programs. Dogs can help bring about comfort and decrease loneliness. “Medical research has shown that contact with dogs can decrease feelings of anxiety and stress. This evidence relates to the following Holocaust literature: Misha: A Memoire of the Holocaust Years, Maus, and A Scrap of Time. What all of these novels have in common is that they feature the presence of a dog. Authors feel the need to insert dogs into this literature because the Holocaust is so devastating that these qualities can’t be found in people. They are used as symbols to counteract the hardships the characters face along their journey during the Holocaust time period. The appearance of dogs in Holocaust literature is significant as they are used for companionship and serve as protection and provide loyalty.
Misha is about a Jewish girl who walked across Europe by herself during World War II and spent months living in the forest. It is the story of a defenseless child who travels great distances and faces many hardships that no other young girl could ever...
...Dogs, simply put, are man’s best friend. These fantastic creatures are extremely loving and undeniably loyal. Both dogs and humans are happier if we are around each other. A great deal of dog owners make their dogs a significant part of their family. Having a dog in your life awards you with numerous benefits. Dogs provide their owners with companionship and relief from loneliness, mental health benefits, physical health benefits and exercise options, built in home security, pleasure in knowing you’re caring for a living creature, and complete unconditional love.
Companionship is probably the number one reason people adopt a dog. You know when you come home everyday you will always have a happy soul there to greet you. Whether you need someone to accompany you on a ride in the car, if you’re craving a little cuddling in your bed or company on the couch watching television your dog will always be there for you. When you own a dog you are never alone. In fact, just walking from room to room in your home you’ll be followed. When human beings disappoint you and you feel as you have no one you can spend time with you can always count on your canine. The loyalty of dogs is amazing and they always want to be by your side. There are many other benefits to owning a dog but for sure your dog will become your...
...together history that goes back to at least
5th century A.D. This shows the existence of the dogs ancestors in the central and
southern regions of Mexico. The Mayan Indians made clay sculptures of small dogs that
may have been a Chihuahua, they date all the way back to the 5th century A.D. A native
people of Mexico may have also been the first to develop a relationship with the
Chihuahuas. They were the tribe known as the Toltecs, they were said to have conquered
a portion of Mexico, they possessed a dog that was of small stature and heavy- boned,
with long coats. This particular dog was known as a Techichi. It had long legs, with a thin
body, almost fawn-like with a humped back. This dog may have been bred with a dog
that inhabited the mountains of Chihuahua, called the Perro Chihuahueno. It is believed
to be a foraging type of dog that lived in holes in the ground. They had round heads,
long nails and short erect ears. When the Aztecs conquered the Toltecs and became the
ruling class, they also used the dogs in religious ceremonies. From the remains found in
pyramids and in graves, it is believed that these people thought that the dog would
function as guides for the human soul. Another ritual was the burning of a dog with a
human body. They believed that doing this...
... Negative Reinforcement of Animal Behaviors
This behavior study examined the effects of negative reinforcement on canine behavior – more specifically barking – over a one-week treatment period my dog, Herbie, served as my test subject. In an attempt to decrease barking I had whomever was going up the steps clap loudly until it stopped. During a seven-day baseline period, I found that my dog really only barked when someone ran up the stairs. For the seven-day treatment period where I had someone clap I saw the barking decrease slightly. By the end of this period, the dogs barking had lessened to where he only barks at strangers going up the stairs. This study was successful in decreasing barking. In the future, I will continue to apply this modifier in order to only have the dog bark when absolutely needed.
Keywords: negative reinforcement, barking, baseline, treatment, behavior modification
Negative Reinforcement of Animal Behaviors
For my behavior modification, I wanted to decrease the amount of barking my dog does while my brother goes up the steps. Ceasar Millan, a dog behavior specialist, suggests becoming “The Pack Leader” in your home. In other words I will have my brother assert some form of dominance around the house so the dog will know not to bark when some one goes upstairs. I selected this because it has started happening to my brother as...
...cats and dogs, and others just cool to have, like tarantulas, fish and snakes. Almost every household has either a cat or a dog, but most people do not realize the similarities and the differences between the two.
Our pets are like humans, they all need to eat, drink, sleep and bathe. With every member of a family, there are expenses and responsibilities. This includes our pets. Cats need to eat every day and they have a clean, fresh litter box to use when needed. Cats usually do not take traditional baths because they lick themselves clean and do not like it, but can be groomed. While grooming is necessary, they usually do it themselves, so baths from their owners is not needed, and it is more of a preference. Dogs need to be groomed or bathed on a regular basis. Unless dogs are short haired, they need frequent baths and grooming. This includes trimming their hair, especially on their belly, since it is prone to knots and matting. At some retail stores like Pet Smart, there is the Pet Smart Top Dog grooming package that you can get for $18. The annual cost of cats is estimated to be $450 while dog’s annual cost is estimated to be $650. Some of these needed expenses are cat food such as Purina Cat Chow which is $15.99 for a 16 pound bag. Many cat owners may notice that their cat is stingy with its food dishes only half gone, but the cat may still want fresh food. Dogs on the other...
...Compare and contrast the treatment of dogs in ‘To Flush my Dog’ and the RSPCA leaflet.
“To Flush, My Dog” written by Elizabeth Barrett Browning and the RSPCA leaflet “ Just ＄3 a month will help rescue more animals like Trio” are two documents exploring the same topic - treatment of dogs. Both documents depict how the owners treat their dogs differently showing the love and bond between dogs and humans. In “To Flush, My Dog”, Elizabeth appraises her dog in a very elaborated manner, while RSPCA documents look at animals from another perspective. Though the theme is the same, the aim of writing is very different. Elizabeth’s love for her dog is contrasted with the maltreatment by some owners whose dogs are subsequently rescued by RSPCA. Similarities, differences and impacts of such treatments will be discussed.
“Nevermore, to pat thee!” (Stanza 16, line 6) Elizabeth uses archaic words like “thee and ‘thy’ to emphasize the importance of Flush to her. Their intimate relationship is shown through physical affection like patting and stroking. However, there is not any physical affection between Trio and its owner. Trio was physically abused. It was squeezed and grabbed in the belly. The wound is so serious that ‘the owner has been ‘prosecuted and is banned from keeping animals for five years’. Readers can be easily moved by...
...Domesticated- Cats verses Dogs
ENG 121: English Composition 1
September 17, 2012
DOMESTICATED- CATS VERSES DOGS
Humans have domesticated animals for hundreds of thousands of years, cats and dogs are two of the most common. As cats and dogs became more domesticated over the years we can see that they have become used to living in captivity. Since cats and dogs are completely different species, the comparison and contrast will be made on how they are both common household pets. Going through the topics of characteristics, size, activities, grooming, caring and feeding of these types of pets, we will see the differences and similarities they have with each other. As we go through each pet trait you should be able to make a decision on which one would best suite you.
Let’s begin with the similarities between cats and dogs, for the understanding of what both types of animals have to offer as well as some disadvantages. The most common thing between cats and dogs is that they both have fur, which can cause allergies to act up, from the dander in their fur, also more cleaning of the house because of the shedding. For these types of domesticated animals, it is highly recommended that you take them in for regular check-ups with a veterinarian for vaccines and other health related problems. Both cats and dogs can eat wet, dry, or a...
