Raw Fish Can Be Poisonous to Dogs

dogfishYou 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, 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. Give him a dog treat or some quality dog food instead!  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!

ownerpolderWhen your geriatric cat or dog enters the “golden age of life,” he might slow down but his mind is still active. To help your senior pet stay happy and active, spend more time, not less doing the things he always enjoyed. Cats might not play as vigorously but any activity with you would be a treat. Grooming is always appreciated too. My cat Molly is 17 and she loves to be brushed everyday. It’s something that she actually looks forward to. She sits outside the bathroom door each day and waits until I’m finished with my shower. That’s her brush time.The sound of your voice is also comforting to an older pet. I’m very grateful that I can spend some extra quality time with Molly in her golden years. It’s something that I would never give up!

Keep giving dogs the chance to socialize. Just a slow walk in the park or an organized activity with some of their favorite dog toys will do. Some senior pets may even teach a younger pet some of the wisdom that they learned along the way.
