Infectious diseases in domestic animals

Timely vaccination of Pets helps control the spread of communicable diseases. In recent years their number has decreased dramatically, but they need to be careful and to have information about the basic signs and symptoms.

What animals to have in the apartment?

Thought here over Pets. For me Pets are cats and dogs. Friends only normal person in the conditions of city apartment. But none of them I can’t, maybe I’m allergic to them. To cats generally hellish.

Well what good are they? What are they for. Sooner or later all the same will have to tell the kids that they went on a trip. Continue reading

Physiological molt

In the first case we are talking about normal shedding. Molting in warm-blooded is the process of changing wool or feather cover.

There are three types of shedding:

Juvenile or age – there is a replacement of “children’s” wool “grown”.

Seasonal – occurs in connection with the change of seasons. “Launches” seasonal moult changed the temperature and weather conditions.

Compensation – occurs due to damage of coat any physical stress (trauma, thermal or chemical burn, etc.).

When a Guinea pig does shed, it is the regeneration of the epidermis. The skin thickens, becomes more friable, and therefore more vulnerable. Therefore, your Guinea pig must be maintained in this period. Continue reading
