How do you find a missing dog?

== == == == The best thing to do is to have your dog microchipped in the first place. Microchipped dogs have the highest rate of recovery when lost. Besides putting up signs, look for your dog in the "found"; ads in the paper, call your local police district, and the ASPCA and Humane Society to see if someone has turned your pet in. Best of luck to you! No you don't need to have a tracking device to find your dog. Trust me, I know. Tracking devices would be helpfull, but they are kind of expensive & not necisary. What I think you should do would be to call your local animal shelter and check with them... also put up some flyers that have (if possible) a picture of the dog, and have the dog's name on it and where it was last seen. You should also have your phone number and your e-mail address (if you have one) I realy hope you find your dog, I know what it feels like to have one go missing If you take your dogs for walks or have stayed in another part of that town/suburb and your dog has been with you, you should look in those places because he/she would likely have gone there first.

If there are 500 sheep 2 sheep dogs and 5 foxes how many sheep will there be left?

The simple answer would be : none eventually with three foxes eating them up. But the joke answer would be : 500. Wolves, not foxes, eat sheep! Five foxes are no match for two good sheepdogs. Most foxes are too small to pose much of a threat to a sheep, preferring smaller prey. The whole pack could eat for a week on one kill. But assuming lazy sheepdogs and overly-aggressive foxes and no new sheep from breeding, there will be no sheep left after about 10 years.

What dogs can hunt deer without the help of a human?

Many dogs were bred for hunting, such as the Scottish Deerhound or Norwegian Elkhound. I feel like dogs HELP HUMANS hunt in general, not the other way around. A dog will sometimes slow down enough to let a human catch up, or share their prey with you.

Many medium to large dogs can hunt deer, not all have the instinct. Many working dogs are so-called "sight hounds" with great vision and speed, huskies, malamutes, greyhounds, and the aformentioned are "sight" hounds. The big diff between a scent hound and a sight hound are that scent hounds, exemplified by "bird" dogs, e.g. labs, beagles, pointers, will hunt in a side to side pattern, seeking the source of a "scent cone" and narrow their pattern on it. Sight hounds will run in a dead straight line toward their prey and run it down if possible. Young deer and cows calves have commonly been the prey of some of these dogs.

If you add to this two other possible factors; One, dogs can hunt in packs and do not have to outrun a deer to tire it. Two, in heavy snow, particularly with an ice crust, deer will crunch through while dogs will run on top, and easily run deer down in the winter.

Like Coyotes and Wolves, abandoned pet dogs can become feral and form "packs" that usually scavenge but will occasionally hunt small game.

How can you tell if your dog dislocated its hip?

It limps. It's leg could be out of the hip socket above or below the socket. The leg may appear longer or shorter than the opposite one, and the dog will not want to put weight on it. There will probably be a space between the hip socket and leg bone. You need to take the dog to a vet if it appears to have dislocated its hip. Get to the vet fast! because over a few days, calcium will build up inside the hip socket making for a much more expensive vet bill and unnessecary hurt for the dog for the rest of his life.

What is calmoseptic ointment?

From calmoseptineointment.com: Calmoseptine Ointment is a multipurpose, moisture barrier ointment. It is over-the counter and does not require a prescription to obtain. It was originally developed by a pharmacist as a diaper rash ointment but, over time, has been found to be effective for a number of conditions. Calmoseptine Ointment acts as a barrier to protect skin from moisture and irritating substances. This barrier function also helps protect the skin from drying out. In addition it has ingredients that help to draw moisture away from too moist or inflamed areas. Thus, it helps to maintain a healthy moisture balance for your skin. In adults and children Calmoseptine Ointment can be used as often as needed to provide protection and relief. On newborn infants under a month (neonates), we recommend using it only 4 times a day and not to cover more than 1/8th of the body. Calmoseptine contains menthol 0.44% and zince oxide 20.625%.

How do you know if a dog has a cold?

YOU DON'T. You should take him to your Vet or at least call. It could be a number of things ie, Upper Respritory, some type of Alergy etc. The Vet will likely want to see him.

a dog the weezes most likely is a reverse sneeze and isn't anything at all but a sneeze, to get rid of a stray cat one way is not to feed him and make sure hes not getting into the garbage and soon enough he should be gone.

Unfortunately, to determine precisely what is wrong, one would need to consult a veterinarian, who would examine your dog. This professional can tell you what to look for and will examine for any other possible causes that you may not be able to do on your own, will make sure there is no pneumonia or something that requires specific treatment or medication. Are your dog's gums a healthy pink color, is he acting lethargic? Consider atleast calling your vet on the phone. You owe it to your loving companion. One vet told me that dog's like people do get colds and often it is nothing to worry about but occasionally there is a need for medical intervention, just like people. As for stray cats, consider calling the local animal no-kill shelter for advice or even the SPCA. Rather than just wanting the stray to 'go away', wouldn't you rather know it's someplace safe, without risk of disease or getting made into road pizza by a passing car? These places can help you get a 'safe trap' for the cat. It encloses them inside a cage but does not harm it. Often they will ask for a deposit and then when you give the cage back they give you the deposit back. You can then bring the cat to the shelter of your choice where it has a chance of receiving proper medical care and a better life. Good luck!

one way or other if it didn't start at the beginning of allergy season and you just bathed him/her then i would assume it would be on the cold side...Mopey and not really active and eye goop are another tip...My Peke i usually know when its a cold or allergy...this time it is full blown cold with eye crust and the whole nine yards...next step would be to see if it has gone into infection...So off to the vet we will go and have his urine checked amongst other things...Peke's have no large nasal passage so I can determine the difference between his breathing...plus all this started after his bathing and peke's are known to get colds and become lethargic along with it...And if you change all the necessary Filters in your house cleaned really well get out as much dust as you can...we all know that is impossible then you can eliminate things...having a cat you just never elminate that dander but cleaning and washing him and having rugs cleaned will help to answer some questions...We all love our pets so we go the distance for them...Have a great day :O)Hope all turns out ok

If your dog is sleepy or not barking, or sneezing, You should know that your dog is suffering from cold.

Is it safe to keep a 1-year-old shephard-rottweiler that bit a child who reached over the sleeping dog?

The breeds in your dog are unpredictable. Both breeds are great dogs, but aren't suitable or trustworthy with children. Once a dog (any breed) bites a child, owner or anyone else it's best to give the dog away to a suitable person (no children).
