Can you give a frozen ham bone to a dog?

A ham bone would be ok, but if it is still frozen, that would not be good for your dog.

Generally, dogs are almost strictly carnivores. Dogs generally thrive on diets made up almost entirely of meat, as long as we feed some organ meat, bones, grains and vegetables to give them a well-balanced diet.

When you can, try to give well balanced fresh made food to your dog and avoid commercial grade foods. And make sure to avoid giving foods like sugar free gums and raisins which are toxic to dogs.

How do you cover up or mask the smell of dog poop from our neighbors yard?

You cannot. If you have a dog, make sure you are picking up your dog's feces every day. Then go over to your neighbor's house and very politely ask them to please pick up their dog's feces as it stinks. Even offer to help out when you go over there. Just be very nice when you ask them to do this, tell them that you do not want your own yard to smell badly for them and that is why you keep your dog's feces picked up. Also explain to them the dangers of letting feces lie around for their own health and their dog's. By picking up the feces on a daily basis they will cut down the risks of getting roundworm eggs, thereby infecting themselves and their dog. So it is safer for the owners and the dogs. Tell them to watch that show on TV called "Monsters Inside of Me". I bet they will pick up their dog's feces twice a day if they watched that.

How do you purchase directly from manufacturers?

Here are opinions and answers from FAQ Farmers: * If I remember correctly, I read somewhere that you need a resale license or certificate and a TIN. * A lot of manufacturers and distributors will sell to the public. Others will only sell to someone with a resale cert. However, I've never heard of just an average person being able to buy straight from the 'big guys' like Sony or Nokia. You most likely would, at the very least, need not only a resale license and tax ID, but more significant proof that you own the kind of business that would deal in brand name electronics or what have you. You'd need to do some serious research if you just own a small shop. And I feel safe saying that individuals cannot deal with the big guys thereby saving money by cutting out the middle man. The savings comes from buying in bulk, which distributors (aka 'middle men') can afford to do. If it were possible or easy, why wouldn't everyone be doing it? * The purpose of the resale license is to prevent the general public from being able to buy directly from the importers, manufacturers, distributors etc. As well as to collect the resale taxes generated by the sale of items. To remove the retailers would cause a total loss of the retail market as we know it. The manufacturers and importers and distributors need the retail market to get the "product" to the general public. The retailers or small businesses are spread out like a network and provide the store fronts that the manufacturers and importers don't have. www.slygear.com and www.hoosiersafety.com are store fronts and work to help sell the items made and imported by many different manufacturers and importers. They are a place where consumers can find the things pertaining to their specific needs within the public safety category without searching for the manufacturer of each individual item. Imagine how long it would take to do that! Convenience for the consumer, Convenience for the importer/manufacturer and the collection of the taxes. The whole free market system is a complex series integrated steps to convenience and competition to level prices and generate sales.

Can I give my dog the ham bone leftover?

No, it can splinter and do damage to the intestinal track or get caught in the dog's throat. If you want to let your dog enjoy a bone, you can, you just have to give them raw bones. Raw bones are not harmfull as long as they are size appropriate. If your dog is huge and you give it a tiny bone, obviously it could try to swallow it and choke. Any time that you let your dog have a bone, it should be supervised. You should only let your dog chew on the bone for a specific period of time like 30-60 minutes and keep an eye on him/her; after that take the bone away. Never leave the dog alone with a bone.

Where do you purchase tea tree oil?

  • Tea tree oil (from Australia) is usually available in health food stores; a 1 ounce bottle can cost about $10. It's a natural antiseptic. We've used it with good effect on cancer sores. There are also several natural deodorants containing tea tree oil.
  • In Canada I have seen it in drug stores like Shoppers Drugmart, even in Wal-Mart in the pharmacy department. You can also get it on an online store.

    In America, you can get it at any Walmart, grocery, pharmacy, or health food store.

  • In the UK, you can buy tea tree oil in health food stores, pharmacies and many supermarkets.

What colors can a dog see?

Dogs' visual acuity is lower so they cannot focus as well. An object a human can see clearly may appear to be blurred to a dog looking at it from the same distance. A rough estimate is that dogs have about 20/75 vision, which isn't that good, but oh well. Also, they can only see in black and white.

Actually, research shows that dogs CAN see some colors, just not at the same intensity as humans and not the same spectrum. It's a little more complicated, but basically, they can see shades of blue and yellow. Red and orange are seen as shades of gray. Green as I understand it is gray but blue-green can be seen. And I think they can see some shades of magenta. But I still stick with the basic yellow and blue. And I will say my dog's favorite toys have always been yellow.

Kitty Cat04's Answer:

Dogs can see violet, indigo, blue, and yellow. They are very good at telling the difference between violet, indigo, and blue. A blue-green color is the color white to dogs.

What is glucosamine?

Glucosamine

Glucosamine (C6H13NO5) is an amino sugar and a prominent precursor in the biochemical synthesis of glycosylated proteins and lipids. Glucosamine is commonly used as a treatment for osteoarthritis, although its acceptance as a medical therapy varies.

Oral glucosamine is commonly used for the treatment of osteoarthritis.Since glucosamine is a precursor for glycosaminoglycans, andglycosaminoglycans are a major component of joint cartilage,supplemental glucosamine may help to rebuild cartilage and treatarthritis. Its use as a therapy for osteoarthritis appears safe, butthere is conflicting evidence as to its effectiveness.

Use

A typical dosage of glucosamine salt is 1,500 mg per day. Glucosamine contains an amino group that is positively charged at physiological pH. The anionincluded in the salt may vary. Commonly sold forms of glucosamine areglucosamine sulphate and glucosamine hydrochloride. The amount ofglucosamine present in 1500 mg of glucosamine salt will depend on whichanion is present and whether additional salts are included in themanufacturer's calculation. Glucosamine is often sold in combination with other supplements such as chondroitin sulfate and methylsulfonylmethane.

In the United States, glucosamine is not approved by the Food and Drug Administrationfor medical use in humans. Since glucosamine is classified as a dietarysupplement, evidence of safety and efficacy is not required as long asit is not advertised as a treatment for a medical condition. Nevertheless, glucosamine is a popular alternative medicineused by consumers for the treatment of osteoarthritis. Glucosamine isalso extensively used in veterinary medicine as an unregulated butwidely accepted supplement.

In Europe, glucosamine is approved as a medical drug and is sold in the form of glucosamine sulphate.


Safety

Clinical studies of glucosamine have consistently reported thatglucosamine appears safe. Since glucosamine is usually derived from shellfish,those allergic to shellfish or who have kosher concerns may wish toavoid it. However, since glucosamine is derived from the shells ofthese animals while the allergen is within the flesh of the animals, it is probably safe even for those with shellfish allergy.Alternative sources using fungal fermentation of corn are available.Another concern has been that the extra glucosamine could contribute todiabetes by interfering with the normal regulation of the hexosaminebiosynthesis pathway, but several investigations have found no evidence that this occurs. The U.S. National Institutes of Healthis currently conducting a study of supplemental glucosamine in obesepatients, since this population may be particularly sensitive to anyeffects of glucosamine on insulin resistance.Finally, in the United States, glucosamine is sold as a dietarysupplement, so safety and formulation is solely the responsibility ofthe manufacturer.

Glucosamine should not be used if you are experiencing a cold or ear/throat infection1.

Which comb is best for your dog?

Brushes...

If you have a long haired dog, you will have to use a wire brush. (To reduce shedding: comb toward the neck, not toward the tail). I think a rubber brush is used for short haired dogs, but I am not sure. I do know you can use a wire brush on short haired dogs, though.

Answer

There is a bathing brush called a Zoom Groom that works wonders with dry hair too.

Do dogs like to wear clothing?

Small dogs do if you do it while they are little and it gets them used to it. Small dogs have a harder time retaining body heat, so they may need a sweater or coat when outside for extended periods of time during the winter. Dogs that have long hair such as the Pomeranian, Chow Chow, Husky and Great Pyrenees do not need additional clothing during the winter from lovelypetwear.com
