Whole Dog Journal: August 2007

RAW DOG FOOD DIET RECIPES
Feeding a raw dog food diet to your canine is quite simple, especially once you have a system in place. Though like anything else new, it can seem very complicated when first starting out. These sample dog food diets should be helpful to newcomers considering feeding a raw diet. Even those who have been doing it for a while may learn some new tricks to make the process of finding, preparing, and storing home prepared dog food simpler.

DOGS AND PUPPIES CHEW FOR A NUMBER OF REASONS, LEARN TO PROPERLY CHANNEL THIS ACTIVITY
Puppies chew to explore their world as well as to relieve the pain and irritation of teething. What many dog owners don’t seem to realize is that mature dogs also need to chew to exercise their jaws, massage their gums, clean their teeth, and relieve stress and boredom. Here are tips for managing puppy chewing, and providing appropriate chew items to adult dogs for their mental and physical health.

PREVENT YOUR DOG FROM SUFFERING HEAT STRESS THIS SUMMER
Hot weather spells trouble for dogs. Because they can’t release heat by sweating the way humans do, heat and humidity can raise canine body temperatures to dangerous levels. Heat stroke kills, and heat stress (a less severe condition) can take a serious toll on a dog’s health. Unfortunately, heat-related problems are among the most common summer canine ailments. Conscientious caregivers plan ahead and do everything they can to keep their dogs safe in the heat. Here are some strategies and products for helping hot dogs chill out.

CANINES AND LIPOMAS
Lumps, bumps, fatty tumors – call them what you will, but nobody likes to see her dog develop lipomas, those persistent little foothills that can sprout up on older dogs – and sometimes, not so-old ones. Often soft and squishy to the touch, benign fatty tumors are not a threat to your dog’s health. (The exception is infiltrative lipomas, which can invade muscle tissue, but these are relatively rare.) While lipomas can be unsightly, many vets opt not to remove them unless they are in a location where their growth impedes a dog’s mobility. But many holistic veterinarians see lipomas as far from innocuous. Instead, they stress, lipomas are symptoms of a bigger problem.
