If you own a dog, you need to take good care of it. Hygiene is necessary for our four-legged pets to make sure they remain healthy. Veterinarian Aelita Baumane and manager of popular DOGO dog feed brand in Latvia Ligita Strode share valuable pieces of advice on proper canine hygiene.
It is good to have a look at your pet’s ears at least once a week. Always check your dog’s years for signs of swelling, unusual smell or ticks. If you find any of those symptoms, always bring your dog to a veterinarian for a check-up. In order to clean your dog’s ears, use a moistened piece of cloth.
A dog’s eyes should be clean at all times. Eye infection is a serious problem that can be avoided with proper hygiene. Use clean cloth to wipe dirt from the eyes of your dog. Wipe from the centre of the eye going to the side, not the other way around. If you spot yellowish excretions coming from your dog’s eyes, immediately bring your dog to a veterinarian – it could be a sign of eye infection.
Dogs are especially in danger of getting teeth problems. As early in a dog’s life as possible – preferably when it is still a puppy – the dog should be trained for teeth cleaning. It’s important to make sure a dog is used to it from an early age. Pet shops sell special tooth paste and special tools for dogs, says DOGO brand manager Strode.
Bathing is essential to keep your dog’s fur clean and soft. Bathing can also help prevent and/or find skin problems. Shampoos for dogs also kill ticks and flees. You don’t have to bathe your dog often – once every six weeks is enough. It also depends on the breed and size of your dog. If you don’t know how often your dog should be bathed, consult with a specialist.
Cutting growing nails of your dog is an important part of taking care of your dog. If nails grow too long, they might break, which is painful for the dog and can also cause an infection. In order to cut your dog’s nails properly, you need to buy special pliers. Nails should be cut in the direction of their growth. For the first time, bring your dog to a veterinarian to cut nails. A trained veterinarian will be able to tell you were it is safe to cut nails.

The above load of written crap is part of the aforementioned Russian "information campaign". Russia is what is has always been - a backward, closed authoritorian regime. Putin, himself, closed down all demonstations in Moscow 3 years ago when the Russian crowds were chanting "Putin out". This type of propaganda might play well with nickalai and olga in their upgraded collective farm west of Khabarosk, but in the rest of the world, it is just neo-communist drivel. The Russians should upgrade their propaganda, and get better propagandists, because no one in their right mind would beleive this palpable nonsense.

A badly timed, extremely foollsh and provocative initiative by the USA's Euro poodles aka NATO, which will come back to bit them badly where it hurts most, like downstairs. Along with the medieval Trump cabinet appointments it's not just a cold war but the very real ppossiblity of a world war. Add China and the China South Seas into this equation with strategic threats from its English speaking Globe News that if the USA undertakes military action it should prepare itself for a nuclear war.Add into this North Korea, the Philipines kicking out the USA base, The SOC lining up with the above and radioactive cloud and rain is going to drizzle down not just on the Baltiic states, but the whole of Europe and North America. There must be siomeone in West Europe who has the balls to stop this suicidal madness in its tracks and put the NATO secetary General into early retirement and tell the USA troops to go back home to its political circus in bogan land. Thank god i live in an island in the South seas.
