Let’s See Those Pearly Whites

Time at the Salon

We bathe and brush our beautiful Collie mix, but about mid-summer, his coat becomes unmanageable. He is shedding his winter fur, and it becomes matted and really kind of nasty. He picks up sticks and leaves in his fur, some of which get caught next to his skin and poke him. It’s at this point we admit that we can’t handle it ourselves – it’s time for a professional grooming.

Groomers not only wash and brush your dog’s coat, but a groomer can also get rid of up to 90% of the fur your pooch is shedding. They also trim the nails, and do a variety of other things that improve the comfort and health of your dog. In our situation, we find that once that undercoat is thinned out, we can maintain our pup’s gorgeous fur as his new winter coat grows in. 

Dogma Pet Supply and Dog Wash™ has a self-wash facility for those who want to bathe their dog themselves, but simply don’t want the mess at home. Dogma™ also offers full-service professional grooming. Before the first snow flies, maybe you should make time for your fur-kid at the groomers, and help him get ready for that new winter coat!

Canine Diabetes

Effective treatment of canine diabetes is very rewarding. You can help your dog regain its quality of life. Your veterinarian can determine if your dog’s symptoms are diabetes-related and devise a treatment plan. You can successfully manage your diabetic dog’s health with insulin therapy, the correct diet and exercise.

Diet is extremely important in the successful management of canine diabetes. Ideally your dog should be fed exactly the same diet every day given at the same time. Lots of treats and snacking between meals should be avoided. This doesn’t mean that your dog cannot have any treats at all. Your veterinarian will be able to suggest snacks suitable for diabetic dogs that can be given occasionally.

Diet impacts the amount of insulin released in the body – in both humans and canines. After a meal is digested glucose is released into the bloodstream. Insulin responds to glucose levels. If your dog is not producing the proper amount of insulin, its blood glucose levels will get too high. The type of food that your diabetic dog eats can have a significant effect on this.

A meal full of sugar causes a sudden increase in blood glucose. If a meal is high in complex carbohydrates (starch and fiber) glucose is released over a longer period in a more controlled way, without spikes in blood glucose levels. An ideal diabetes diet is usually restricted in fat content, has a high complex carbohydrate content, and is high in fiber. Your veterinarian can help you choose a proper diet. With treatment, your diabetic dog can have a very full and rewarding life.

Floppy Ears

Do you often see your dog scratching its ears, shaking its head, or acting irritable with its ears? If so, it could be is suffering from a case of ear infection. Ear infection is very common to dogs with flopped ears.    Fungal infections, which can be started with the smallest amount of water in the ear, are common because air fails to circulate freely in the ears.  Air circulation is very crucial in maintaining the health of the ears of dogs.

Ear infections in dogs can be easily treated and cured, but require a visit to the veterinarian – it is crucial that the right medicine is given because there are many different types of infection. Regularly check the ears of your flop-eared dogs to see if it discharges ear wax abnormally.  Normal ear wax excreted by the ears is largely odor-free.  If there is a foul odor coming from your dog’s ear, the chances are high that it has got some infection.  If that’s the case, try to clean your dog’s ears gently.  Use cotton balls dipped in an ear cleaning solution obtained from the vet’s clinic. Your veterinarian may also prescribe drops for your dog’s ears to help clear up the infection. If your dogs ears do not flop over, you don’t need to clean them – he can clean them himself.
