Bones Are Not Good For Dogs

bonessafeYour dog’s love for bones can be traced back to their wild predatory instincts. You think that you are doing your dog a favor when you’re in the supermarket and ask the man at the meat counter for a nice juicy bone for your dog. Remember, just as milk is always not good for cats, bones aren’t always good for dogs. Small bones such as pork chops or chicken wings can fracture and get lodged in your dog’s throat. Large bones such are leg bones are better because a dog can’t swallow them. Even these bigger bones are not that great for your dog since they can be hard and fracture his teeth. The best policy is to ban bones entirely. Try giving your dog a biscuit or a dental chew toy  or tasty dog treat instead. Remember, feed your dog a quality dog food, provide frequent healthy dog treats and give him plenty of exercise chasing his dog toys and he won’t even miss chomping on a bone!

dogfishingYou love to fish and so does your dog. He goes with you on every trip. You’re just getting back to the dock with a good catch of salmon and trout. To reward your dog for being such a good companion,instead of giving him is dog food,  you throw him a fish. Did you know that you may be killing him with your kindness? Salmon poisoning disease found primarily in the northern pacific area of the U.S., and the pacific coast of Canada is often fatal for dogs. The disease is caused when the dog eats raw salmon or trout contaminated with a parasite that contains the infecting organism. Symptoms usually appear five to seven days later. Look for lack of appetite, fever, vomiting and diarrhea if you suspect that your dog may be infected. Salmon poisoning disease is curable if caught early and the dog is treated with fluids, antibiotics and anti vomiting medication. So instead of throwing him a raw fish, buy him a dog toy instead!
