    An eye infection is a relatively general description of a medical condition that may result in discomfort, discharge and abnormal appearance of a dog’s eyes and surrounding tissue.

    Conjunctivitis
    This is generally the most common type of eye infection seen regularly in dogs. Conjunctivitis is characterized by the inflammation of the portion of the eye called the conjunctiva. The conjunctiva is the thin, clear membrane that protects the eye as well as the inner eyelid. The cause of this condition is most commonly a viral infection, an allergic reaction, or a bacterial infection.

    The most common bacteria that cause conjunctivitis are streptococci and staphylococci. In Allergic conjunctivitis, the cause may be any number of airborne irritants that are causing an allergic reaction. Conjunctivitis that is caused by a virus is usually a result of a respiratory infection, flu, or other viral conditions. Regardless of the specific cause, this is the condition that manifests with all of the general symptoms of an eye infection, without any secondary symptoms.

    Blepharitis
    Blepharitis is a condition that usually manifests as an inflammation of the eyelids. The most common cause of this condition is a bacterial infection, which causes the subsequent inflammation of the eyelid. Other causes include demodectic mites, sensitivity to the sun, trauma, and other eye diseases. Though this condition may affect humans as well as dogs, it is occasionally seen in cats and other mammals.

    Ulcerative Keratitis
    In the condition of Ulcerative Keratitis, a dog’s eye is subject to inflammation of the cornea. This is usually characterized by specific erosions of the cornea, though may also manifest as ulcers. This condition can be caused by several factors, though is commonly caused by keratoconjunctivitis sicca.

    The common name for keratoconjunctivitis sicca is “Dry Eye”, and is characterized by a deficiency of tears, usually caused by abnormalities in the tear ducts. Other causes of this condition include herpesvirus, trauma(where eye is punctured), other disease affecting the eyes/tear ducts, and facial nerve paralysis.

    Juvenile Cellulitis (Puppy Strangles)
    This is a condition that usually manifests as blisters around the eyes, in addition to blisters around the lips, mouth, nose and ears. These blisters will cause irritation to the eyes, resulting in many of the common symptoms of an eye infection. The blisters will eventually become ulcerated, and a dog will have other secondary symptoms, such as enlarged lymph glands and anorexia. This condition is caused by a bacterial infection.

  • Importance of Animal Feed Supplements

    Comments Off on Importance of Animal Feed Supplements
    December 30, 2019 /  Pets and Animal

    Everybody knows why we need food supplements. The inclusion of supplements into diet is being done by animal researchers in the same way nutritional additives have been used for humans. There are various nutritional benefits for animals while eating the food containing animal feed supplements. We take our various uses from our animals and it is our duty to provide them with best food possible in order to yield great returns. Many people remain doubtful about the presence of nutrients in the animal feed. If you are not sure that your animal feed comes with pre-mixed nutrients required for good health, you can do this by researching about it online.

    Do you know every living creature in this world need certain types of minerals for correct functioning of various bodily processes? This is the reason why nutrients are so much important for the existence of different living creatures. In the absence of these minerals, these various bodily functions would slow down or cease, and cause illness and death. With the proper knowledge of these functions being better understood, the inclusion of minerals to animal feed is improved now. Make sure to do a research about the company that supplies your choice of feed and see what nutritional supplements they add.

    Although there are various types of supplements come in the market, the most commonly used supplements that are put into grains for animals are animal and fish-based. Blood meal, bone meal, and feather meal are some of the widely used animal feed supplements. Blood meal is in dry form compressed blood. The blood used for this supplement doesn’t contain hair, bone, and other body parts. This is a high protein supplement that is found to be extremely healthy for muscle health.

    While bone meal is considered to be extremely high in calcium, research has shown that there is not that high of content in it after all. However, it is still used in some feeds. Corn is found another important ingredient that is used in grains in order to get additional nutrition. The cornstalk is used as an animal feed for cattle and horses for many years. One advice is to research the supplier you use to learn the supplements that company adds to feed.

    Fish is considered as an important source of ingredients for animals. The addition of fish meal in animal feed is a great way to include the minerals and vitamins that are much needed for attaining good health.

  • Animal House Review

    Comments Off on Animal House Review
    December 30, 2019 /  Pets and Animal

    Arriving on the scene in 1978, Animal House is the blockbuster frat house comedy that rewrote all the rules and created a generation of filmmakers hoping to replicate its comic genius. Original Saturday Night Live cast member John Belushi turned in a breakout film performance that made him a comedy rock star, propelling him to further fame with the release of Blues Brothers (1980). Tim Matheson also has his breakout role in the cult classic which features appearances by actors Mark Metcalf (“the Maestro” from Seinfeld), Donald Sutherland, and Kevin Bacon.

    The film is set at fictional Faber College in the 1960s. Two incoming freshmen roommates, Larry Kroger (Tom Hulce) and Kent Dorfman (Stephen Furst), visit the various fraternities on campus in an effort to find a good group with which to socialize. But the two get more than they bargain for when the meet the guys of Delta House – a ragtag bunch of beer-swilling, womanizing, party animals. The group is the complete opposite of another campus fraternity, Omega House, headed by the snide, condescending preppies Greg Marmalard (James Daughton), Doug Neidermeyer (Mark Metcalf), and Chip Diller (Kevin Bacon). Favorites of Dean Wormer, the Omega House continually taunts Delta House and conspires with Dean Wormer to have the members of Delta expelled and their fraternity banned.

    Leading the charge for Delta House is John “Bluto” Blutarsky (John Belushi), ladies man Eric “Otter” Stratton (Tim Matheson), and Donald “Boon” Schoenstein (Peter Riegert). Pledging Delta House, Larry and Kent are given the nicknames, Pinto and Flounder. Brought into the fold, they witness the true diversity of characters they are now brothers with. Otter seduces Dean Wormer’s wife, and Bluto spits egg on Greg Marmalard while Boon and his girlfriend work through their problems.

    Things go well for the men of Delta House until Dean Wormer calls them into his office and places them on “Double Secret Probation”. With Omega and Wormer aligned against them, Delta House is kicked off campus and its members expelled. But the great men of Delta refuse to go down without a fight. With the Homecoming parade set to begin, they unleash a fury of revenge on Wormer and company.

    At the conclusion of the film, we learn of the whereabouts of all the various characters. The timeless humor of this film makes it no wonder that it has ascended to cult classic status. An original and witty comedy wielding a trailblazing influence on teen/college comedies, Animal House has earned its place in the hallowed halls of American cinematic classics.

  • Low Maintenance Dogs

    Comments Off on Low Maintenance Dogs
    December 29, 2019 /  Dogs and Cats

    Most of us want to have a pet dog to come home to after a long days work. But because of our hectic schedules and busy lifestyles, we have second thoughts of getting one since we cant really take care of our pet properly. However, there is still hope. There are certain dog breeds that are fun and very low maintenance. These dogs can practically live anywhere as long as they are given the right amount of attention, love and care.

    Bolognese

    Small and playful, this breed is a great apartment dog. The Bolognese originated in Italy where they became very popular companions amongst nobles and royal courts. Bolognese dogs do not really have a lot of health issues and they only need occasional walks. They are very smart and easy to train. However, they can be a little reserved when it comes to strangers, but they get along very well with other animals and kids.

    Japanese Chin

    Japanese Chins actually originated in China and were bred in Japan. They are small dogs, weighing at around 8 to 12 pounds. These dogs are not very active and prefer to lounge around. Their coats need regular combing and brushing so that it does not mat, but they do not shed a lot. Health wise, these dogs are prone to a few illnesses. They tend to get sick with heart problems, cataracts, back problems, and luxating patellas.

    Greyhound

    Known to spend more time on the tracks than anywhere else, Grayhounds are actually low maintenance dogs that are perfect for condominiums and apartments. They have very short coats so grooming is not a problem. Usually, Greyhounds are gentle, quiet, and loving dogs that are very smart and easy to train. However, these dogs are known to have very sensitive skin and may have problems coping with extreme temperatures.

    Bullmastiff

    Most people have second thoughts about getting a Bullmastiff. These large dogs look scary because of their size, but theyre actually pretty docile. These dogs were once bred to take down pray or intruders, hold them down and wait for their owners to come. Despite the Bullmastiffs size, its actually a low energy dog, making it perfect for apartment dwellers. However, it will need some space to lounge around since they are better off living inside with their owners then outside alone. Because of their size, these dogs are also prone to degenerative myelopathy. Degenerative myelopathy causes them to lose control of their nerves and can lead to full body paralysis.

  • Fun Toys For Dogs – Safe, Interactive And Cheap

    Comments Off on Fun Toys For Dogs – Safe, Interactive And Cheap
    December 28, 2019 /  Dogs and Cats

    Top dogs deserve safe, fun toys but it is not easy to find toys for dogs that are indestructible and cheap at the same time.

    Unruly behaviour in dogs is often caused by boredom and being left home alone with no fun dogs toys to play with. Every dog needs exercise and mental stimulation. Owners cannot always be on hand to take their dog for a walk or play with them for whatever reason. A few well chosen dogs’ toys is the answer to keep your dog happy and content.

    There are many types of toys for dogs such as tug/pull toys, chew toys, soft toys and interactive toys in all price ranges but you should make certain that any toy you give your dog is safe. Many cheap dogs toys are those that contain little plastic squeakers in them which can really harm your dog and usually a dog will be intent on pulling the squeaker out and do so within ten minutes of having the toy! Vets see more dogs in distress through swallowing small toy parts than any other type of accident. So safety is a big issue when it comes to dog or puppy toys.

    Toys for dogs should be fun and engage your dog in play – interactive dog and puppy toys are a popular good choice as your dog can either play alone with these toys or you can join in too.

    I have an 8yr old westie who loves to play – his favourite dogs toys of all time are his talking babble balls (interactive dog toys) which provide him with hours of fun! We often play together by me chasing Dougs and kicking the talking babble ball across the kitchen floor with him darting around after this toy that keeps coming out with smart little sayings in a really cute voice such as are you ready to go? or youre looking great big doggy! The interactive balls are made of hard plastic and virtually indestructible so they really are good value toys for dogs. Dougie has had at least 6 of these talking babble balls since they came out about 4 yrs ago but now PetQuerks who manufacture the dogs toys have made the latest ones with replaceable batteries making the toy just right. The talking babble balls are very safe for your dog as the battery container is concealed within so that your dog cannot get anywhere near it. This interactive dog toy is safe, fun and indestructible, making ideal puppy toys too. Apparently the toys are also popular with children and cats love the small talking babble ball.

  • To Gut Your Animal Or To Not Gut Your Animal

    Comments Off on To Gut Your Animal Or To Not Gut Your Animal
    December 24, 2019 /  Pets and Animal

    Up until about 5 years ago I was gutting every big game that I was harvesting every year. I’d do the same procedure every time I’d start at the bottom of the stomach and cut my way up the ponch then I’d do the nasty deed of removing the anal intestine and everything down in that area. Boy that was something that I never looked forward to every year.

    It wasn’t until I went hunting with a great friend of mine and he asked me what I was doing as I proceeded to open up the ponch. I told him I was gutting this deer, he started laughing at me and said “I’ll teach you a ten times easier way that’s less nasty and much faster.” He then proceeded to quarter out my deer and was finished in less then 15 minutes flat. I stood there amazed because not only did he quarter that deer out super fast he had almost no blood, gut juice, stomach goo or anything else you get on you when you gut a big game animal. I was sold after that and have never gutted another big animal after that day.

    Last year after my father killed his big 6 point elk, we sat there arguing over whether we should gut it and come back tomorrow or hurry and quarter it out before we leave. It was getting dark fast so as you can imagine the argument got heated. I won the argument and ended up quarting him and coming back the next day. It did take a little longer than normal because of the size of the elk but it was definitely less stinky and dirty than gutting the elk.

    Whose to say what’s the best method sometimes it depends on where you kill the animal and the size of the animal. If you kill a big animal 5 miles in the back country obviously it’s a no brainer but if you’re lucky enough to be able to get your truck or 4 wheeler up to it then why not take it out whole. I’ve never been lucky enough to able to just back my truck up to the animal.

    Both ways have their pros and cons and it just comes down to personal preference or the location of the animal. Something to think this hunting season as you’re about ready to take the knife to your animal.

    Be safe and good hunting to everyone!

    December 23, 2019 /  Dogs and Cats

    I’ve been compiling a list of famous cats for my website PetNum.com for some time now. I know which my favorites are, but I wondered which are the most famous overall. There are so many great famous cats that I’m doing this in four groups, and then I’ll do a final round with the top cats from those groups.

    The most famous cats (based on online chatter) with names starting with the letter N to Sc are:

    10. Polar Bear, who was the cat in Cleveland Amory’s book “The Cat Who Came for Christmas”

    9. Paulie, from the Non Sequitur comic strip

    8. Patsy, who was Charles Lindbergh’s cat

    7. Orlando the Marmalade Cat, from the series of books by Kathleen Hale

    6. Periwinkle, from the TV series Blue’s Clues

    5. Oscar, the Hospice cat from Rhode Island who can seemingly predict death

    4. Samurai Cat, from the illustrated books by Mark Rogers

    3. Salem from the Sabrina the Teenage Witch TV Series and comic books

    2. Sabbath, from Emily the Strange

    …and the most famous cat on this list is…

    1. Scratchy, from “Itchy and Scratchy” a cartoon within the animated series the Simpsons

    Cats not ranking in the top 10 were Nee chee from Emily the Strange, Nala from the House of Night book series, Napster who was Shown Fanning’s cat, Robert Johnson from Rick Riordan’s Tres Navarre series, Pyewacket from the 1958 movie Bell Book and Candle, Pulcinella who was composer Domenico Scarlatti’s cat, Piccolo who was Albert Schweitzer’s cat, and Peta who was the British Chief Mouser in the 1970s.

    So a nice mix of cats from television (Scratchy, Salem, Periwinkle) and books (Sabbath, Samurai Cat, Polar Bear, Orlando).

    I compiled this list by searching for the names listed on a number of search engines and ranking them by the number of web pages, discussion forums, photos, videos, etc that are available online.

  • Getting the IRS Monkey Off Your Back again

    Comments Off on Getting the IRS Monkey Off Your Back again
    December 23, 2019 /  Primates

    Make no mistake about it, when you have un-filed tax issues in your daily life, a great part of your power is drained by worries over what the IRS may possibly do. If you are operating, this is an even greater problem.

    Let me be as truthful as I can appropriate from the best. I promise this article will become far more constructive as you go through on./p>

    The IRS will make every single work to communicate with you by means of the United States Postal Services. However, when the IRS computer reaches a level, in which an IRS Human has not re-programmed it, regarding your tax account, you can expect the IRS Personal computer, with the correct process, to generate a created communications, entitled: Intent to Levy.

    It does not make any difference if you didn’t file the past because of tax returns or not. Be assured the IRS has finished the returns for you, and almost certainly not in your favor, and surely without your specific deductions. (The IRS produced return is knownas: A Substitute Return)

    This thirty Day Intent to Levy Notice, is no joke, and is based on the Substitute Return. This IRS Notice indicates precisely what it says. Inside 30 days, if you do NOT speak to the IRS and supply the tax returns in question, or make arrangements to spend your taxes, you can count on a wage garnishment, and/or, a bank levy on your checking and savings account. (Oh, they know where you financial institution, specially if you had any transactions more than $5000)

    The very best remedy is to contact the IRS, or have an cost-effective tax professional speak to the IRS on your behalf. Find out exactly which many years the IRS is expecting a tax return for, or exactly how significantly “they” say you owe.

    Once the tax returns are filed, (generally the IRS will set a date with your tax professional, for when the taxes are be finished) you can request an Installment Arrangement to shell out any taxes which are owed. Even so, the other side of the coin, and we see this scenario more than you believe, the IRS owes the taxpayer.

    Until the taxpayer files the true tax return, the probability of acquiring a refund verify is out of the question. And if the previous due tax returns are more than three years, you even now may possibly not be entitled to a refund, (The IRS generally areas a 3 12 months window on refunds)

    Irrespective if you believe in evolution or development, the monkey (metaphor) of un-filed taxes is true, and can improve your strain stage, tremendously.

    If you have un-filed taxes, you are not by yourself. In 2009 there had been more than 33 million late tax returns filed. Usually the Wage Garnishment Buy, when sent to a taxpayer’s Employer, forces the taxpayer to get the required steps to resolve the issue. Therefore the amount of drastic collection steps are decreased dramatically.

  • Raccoon Animal Traps

    Comments Off on Raccoon Animal Traps
    December 23, 2019 /  Pets and Animal

    Raccoons are easily frightened from our gardens, but can become very aggressive when a female is protecting her litter. They have been known to inflict wounds on even large dogs that were fatal. >

    Raccoons like skunks can be very destructive to lawns and gardens due to their constant grubbing in search of their food source. A raccoon can tear up a large area of sod overnight as a result of grubbing.

    Raccoons often gain access to attics, basements, and crawl spaces by forcing something loose. They are very intelligent animals and will surprise most homeowners as to what they are capable of doing. The female raccoon readily invades attic spaces to birth and wean her litters of pups.

    Raccoons are infested with fleas and ticks and readily cause a secondary problem for the homeowner and their pets.

    Controlling raccoons and skunks can be performed a few different way, habitat modification, mechanical control and trapping. Reducing food source as much as possible will help with raccoons, skunks, and opossums. Pet food dishes and containers should be brought in and or lids secured tightly. Bird feeders can also be an attractant for raccoons. Lids on your garbage can should be secured.

    When feasible, troublesome raccoons should be discouraged from taking up residency with exclusion. They are typically easier to exclude by blocking all entry points into the dwelling.

    Live animal traps 32-x12-x10- or similar are the perfect size for trapping your raccoon. Animal traps are probably the best method of control of raccoons. Single door animal traps are best pest control products. Baiting with canned cat food, or even sardines will work well. Place animal traps so that they are in a location to intercept the raccoon as it approaches it target.

    Live animal traps will allow you to catch and release your raccoon into a more rural area that is not your house.
