Is there anything safe you can put on the stiff stitches after spaying to keep them from sticking to the dog's skin?
Answer . Sometimes when the vet has spayed the dog they can often end the stitching (a knot) leaving a piece of the stitch too long that can dig into the dog's belly. Either you can cut off the extra or take the dog back to the vet (there should be no additional cost for this) and have them check… the stitches out.. Stitches don't stick to the skin, but are sewn in. The vet would have told you when to bring the dog back to have the stitches removed. If the wound looks good and the dog is irritated by the stitches (each dog, just like a human can heal quickly or slowly) perhaps it's time for the dog to have the stitches out. See your vet right away! (MORE)
The nitrogen cycle - /> . cycling nutrients,. causing diseases, flavoring foods,. producing medicines. As far as I know, they play an important role in the carbon cycle. When a living thing dies, bacteria attack the body thus releasing all the elements such as carbon back into the atmosphere.… (MORE)
Vitamin D? No. Vitamin D is not manufactured, rather, it is chemically altered by UV rays on the skin, and thereby, capable of utilization by the liver, and then by the kidneys; the organ responsible for maintenance of calcium levels. Interestingly enough, however, the active form of vitamin D is …plentiful in the western diet, and only about 5-10% of vitamin D is actually utilized by the UV ray induced alteration from the skin. The skin produces many substances, however, most substances are consider paracrine (affecting neighboring cells) rather than endocrine (affecting distant organ systems). More commonly, hormones or endocrine substances, affect the skin, causing pathologic states. An example of paracrine: - Inflammatory markers- Sites of trauma, or areas of potential infection; cells within the skin induce several chemicals that increase the migration of specialized cells of the immune system, as well as cells from the vasculature (platelts) and other cells that are responsible for healing - Endocrine: Insulin (acanthosis nigricans) immune complexes (vitiligo, bullae) (MORE)
denitrifying bacteria convert nitrogen into ammonia which is a form of nitrogen that is useful to humans. Bacteria "fixes" gaseous nitrogen into nitrogen usable by plants in the form of nitrate. Also bacteria nitrify soil by turning "fixed" nitrogen back into its gaseous form.
The three main roles are nitrate, nitrite, and denitrify.. Nitrite is in the soil, and turns useful stuff into nitrate.. Nitrate takes the useful stuff, is eaten by animals, and is decomposed.. Denitrify is when once the animals release nitrate, it takes it back out and is released in the atmosph…ere. (MORE)
It keeps the solar system together because without it we would be floating around. :)

The integument acts as a barrier that separates the internal composition of the body from the external environment. It is also vital in preventing dessication.. D is the answer. Temperature regulation and sensation, reference,. Because it interfaces with the environment, skin plays a very importan…t role in protecting (the body) against pathogens. Its other functions are insulation, temperature regulation, sensation, synthesis of vitamin D, and the protection of vitamin B folates. Severely damaged skin will try to heal by forming scar tissue. This is often discolored and depigmented. (MORE)
Algae absorb nutrients or chemicals from the water source, thereby keeping it clean by removing contaminants.. ADDENDUM . As is not nice in the world of algae good works! If algae proliferate when nutrients are high they may die off when conditions change. The masses of rotting algae (algae blooms…) rob oxygen from the water and kill fish and give an off taste to the water. The floating, rotting blooms are aesthetically unappealing.. Secondly the algae may remove contaminants like heavy metals from the water, but they concentrate it in their bodies. The algae die and precipitate toxic levels of the heavy metals on fish spawning beds (MORE)
Bacteria and other microbes play the important role in environment of DECOMPOSERS, which act in the last stage of food chain. These microorganisms like bacteria cause the breakdown of energy rich organic compounds. These compounds come from decaying matter of plants such as leaves, or from animals… waste products and dead bodies. The microbial mediated degradation process is also called bioremedation. (MORE)
It Plays A Role In The Colon My Removing The Bacteria In The Blood Clotting.
Bacteria, especially E. coli, can be used as vectors to producehuman insulin. The insulin gene is inserted into a bacterium, whichthen produces insulin identical to what humans make.
They eat filth, carcasses, and such, and when they die, they provide nutrients for plants and algae.
the bacteria breaks down the carbon compounds in dead animals and plants and converts the carbon to CO2 if oxygen is present
All the general anesthetic agents absorbed through lungs areexcreted through lungs only. Many heavy metals, rifampicin areexcreted partially through skin. All the large drug molecules, notexcreted by kidney are excreted by liver through bile.
Bacteria causes fossil fuels to break down the plant and animals, they basically eat it.
While roasting, the skin dries and seals moisture and any rendered fat inside the bird. This keeps the turkey from drying out. There are several techniques which improve the efficiency of this process, from brining to simple oil rubs.
Composting. Bacteria break down [biodegrade, compost] organics such a leaves, grass, wood, etc., which allows the nutrients to be "less bound up," and thus more available to newly growing vegitation.
You can keep youselves safe by wearing equipment like knee pads, elbow pads, a helmet, protecters and you can avoid playing in dangerous places like near rocks.I fell on big rocks one time and almost fractured my arm.
Vitamin D is manufactured in the skin when the skin is exposed to the sunshine. This vitamin D is then used by the body to help with the deposition of of calcium in the bones.
Although the air is made up of about 70% nitrogen, plants cannot use nitrogen in this N 2 form. Nitrogen fixing bacteria change nitrogen into the form of soluble nitrates so that plants can use it. Other bacteria, known as de-nitrifying bacteria, change nitrates back into N 2 , which completes the …nitrogen cycle . They fix nitrogen into forms usable by plants.. (MORE)
The role that the skin plays in regulating body temperature is getting rid of all excess waste inside the body.
Your integumentary system has several functions. It provides a barrier against infection and disease, regulates body temperature, and provides a pathway for sensory receptors, to name a few.
Some bacteria can take nitrogen from the atmosphere and convert itinto a form that plants and other microorganisms can use. Someexamples of microorganisms that are converted into forms that areuseful for other organisms are carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur,and phosphorus.
I know that bacteria and fungi are microorganisms......bacteria is every where,and fungi prevents athletics foot.........but i don't know about the decomposition part. Sorry I can't help!!!!!
skin bacteria is pretty much just bacteria in the skin, usually picked up by bacteria from your hands that has spread when you've touched your face or from your pillow and sheets in your bed. I recommend cleaning your pillow cases once a week to keep bacteria away, and also if you have long hair too… tie it up before bed as your hair may pick up bacteria and spread it too your face when in contact..

sleep is important for skin and body! our body needs 7-8 hours of sleep a day. The most evident signs of lack of sleep are the dark circles and bags under our eyes. Other evidences take a little longer to appear, like dull skin and limp, lifeless hair. So, get your sleep
I know of only one way. Mix up a jar of MM1 (miracle mineral solution) and keep in the the refrigerator, maybe even in the bin with the vegetables. You could also wash the vegetables with an MMS1 solution.
Yes. They have a cell wall. This is commonly considered the dividing line between living and non-living things.
Without them we wouldn't be able to survive. They help us digest food, produce vitamins, and occupies niches that otherwise would be available for competing pathogens.
Generally, once the food is actually frozen (which will vary depending upon the food), you're not going to have any bacterial growth. But the minimum temperature for Listeria monocytogenes is 31.3Â°F. For best keeping quality, the freezer should be set to 0Â°F.
Nitrogen fixing bacteria, often called Rhizobia (singular Rhizobium), are a key component of the nitrogen cycle. Atmospheric nitrogen is useless to living organisms, but often binds to hydrogen forming compounds such as ammonia (NH 3 ) and ammonium (NH 4 + ). However, most plants cannot use ammonia… so nitrogen fixing bacteria, or nitrifying bacteria, convert ammonia to oxygen compounds such as nitrate (NO 3 - ), which helps plants to grow. These rhizobia are fixed in legumes' nodules, which are on the roots, and provide the nitrates to the plant. Animals then eat the plants, and so on and so forth, and the cycle continues. Conversely, denitrifying bacteria convert nitrates back to pure nitrogen gas, as another component of the cycle. (MORE)
Bacteria and fungi, helps in the formation of humus in the top soil (soils uppermost surface/layer), by the decomposition of dead and decayed matter. Humus is very important and necessary for the growth and development of plants, because it contains essential nutrients which they need for survival.
Bacteria are involved in oxygen and food production, environment recycling and cleanup, and in health maintenance and medicine production
protection from external factors, temperature regulation, sensations, storage of lipids (fat) and H2O, used to absorb sunlight for vit D synthesis,
Bacteria are responsible for capturing Nitrogen that is in the air and sequestering it into the soil so that plant life can use it. Plants prefer to use nitrogen in its Nitrate form because it dissolves easily in water, making it easy for a plant to gather and store. There are three main steps durin…g the "Nitrification" portion of the Nitrogen cycle. In the first step, bacteria collect Nitrogen from the atmosphere and use it instead of oxygen to digest their food. These bacteria reduce the Nitrogen to form ammonium ions ( + NH 4 ), which are excreted from the cell. In the next phase, Nitrifying bacteria take the ammonium ions and use it as food, reacting it with oxygen to produce energy. They end up excreting an Nitrite ion ( - NO 2 ). In the final phase, a third group of Nitrifying bacteria oxidize the Nitrite further, excreting the water soluble nitrate that is so necessarily for plant growth. (MORE)
Laser surgery is now applied to a variety of skin lesions, ranging from spider veins to more extensive blood vessel lesions called hemangiomas.
Some bacteria have the ability to "fix" nitrogen, that is they can utilize gaseous (atmospheric) nitrogen to produce organic compounds. (They can all break down compounds to free nitrogen too.)
The skin, which is actually the moist skin of the amphibians help them to breathe in water.
amphibians breathe through their skin. that's why its so important that if you have amphibians, you should always make sure that their environment is clean.
The skin contains pores all around the body. In these pores are sweat glands which, when warm, release sweat which absorbs the heat from the skin and evaporates. Also, when you are cold the hairs on your body are erected which traps a layer of heat above the skin.
Based on morphology of bacteria, bacteria can classified as one of three group of coccus, bacillus, or spirillum. A coccus is a sphere. A bacillus is a rod-shaped bacterium. A spirillum is a long cell with one or more curves or coils.
Most of nitrogen is fixed naturally by bacteria. Most nitrogen fixers are either free or sybiootic eg. Rhizobium .
The skin is like a giant shield covering your whole body, protecting it from diseases and infections. Without it the human race would die
Too many to explain The skin is the barrier to the outside world, and thus, many mechanisms have evolved to maintain temperature homeostasis within the body. To name a few: - Houses glands that create fluid that aid in cooling the skin and therby cooling the arteries (sweat) - House arteries,… the pipelines of the body, that control cooling of the body (vasodilation) or warming of the body (vasoconstriction) - Prevent evaporative losses of fluid from the body that would cause too much cooling, of the body, while at the same time protecting the body from freezing temperatures - Houses cellular stem cells that create a native coat to increase temperature preservation (hair cells) WIthout our skin, we would not survive due to many different causes, including surviving temperature fluctuations (MORE)
Yes. Anaerobic bacteria. By fossil fuels, we mean gas and oil (petroleum) and related hydrocarbon fuel sources that formed from organic matter buried in the earth millions of years ago. These fuels are overwhelmingly the result of anaerobic decomposition of plankton and not larger plants or anima…ls the would possible leave fossils. (There will be some of these larger living things, especially when the organic matter was collected in swamps. It is common to find fossilized ferns in coal deposits, for example.) Geologic processes provided heat and pressure to produce the final product. (MORE)
Why would anyone want to make a musical called "skin cancer" let alone a character called "genetics"
The skin primarily is responsible for the production of Vitamin D. When it is exposed to the sunlight for more than about a half hour, it will begin converting cholesterol into Vitamin D. It will continue to do so until the sunlight is blocked or considerably weakened.
It mainly depends on the type of phone you have, but it is not dangerous.
