Thursday, February 1 2018

According to the American Association of Equine Practitioners, proper dental care is key for your horse. Your veterinarian can learn a lot about an animal’s health by examining its mouth.

Beyond the comfort and good health of your horse, there are other benefits to proper dental care.

Feed will be consumed more efficiently with less spillage or waste if your horse’s teeth are in good working order. Proper diet may help your horse perform better and live longer.

Organophosphates: Why They Matter

Thursday, February 1 2018

Ehrich

Organophosphates are chemicals found in many insecticides and highly toxic nerve agents. The United States Environmental Protection Agency lists organophosphates as very highly and acutely toxic to bees, wildlife and humans. Continuing concern for use of organophosphate nerve agents by rogue nations and terrorists, along with the toxicity of organophosphate insecticides to humans, animals and the environment, means that these compounds pose very real public health and environmental problems.

We all know it’s never okay to leave children or pets in a hot car. The same holds true for cold cars.

According to the American Veterinary Medical Association and The News Wheel, a car rapidly cools down in cold weather. It becomes like a refrigerator and can quickly chill your pet.

Pets that are young, old, ill or thin are particularly vulnerable to cold environments.

Cold temperatures affect dogs differently and can cause hypothermia. A short haired dog will definitely get colder faster.
