May Is Dog Health Awareness Month at Pup Life; This Year PupLife.com Will Focus On Cancer Prevention and Treatment, Learn More At PupLife.com










Fennville, MI (PRWEB) May 2, 2007

PupLife.com is pleased to celebrate Dog Health Awareness Month in May by providing timely articles, resource guides, tips and information to encourage and promote healthy lifestyles for dogs. Canine cancer prevention and management serves as the focus for 2007. PupLife.com is proud to sponsor Dog Health Awareness Month for the fourth consecutive year.

Cancer is a serious concern for all pet owners and PupLife.com recognizes the impact of this devastating disease on dogs and owners alike. Routine screening and early detection are rapidly becoming watchwords in canine healthcare as dog owners and veterinarians focus efforts on cancer prevention. Throughout the month of May, PupLife.com will feature articles and information specifically relevant to cancer prevention, maintaining healthy lifestyles and managing a cancer diagnosis holistically.

It is important to know that research in canine cancer has progressed rapidly in the past few years and veterinarians are offering more practical options and strategies to enhance the health companion pets. Growing interest in organic dog food, natural supplements and holistic health care for dogs has encouraged pet owners to reevaluate their dog’s diet and lifestyle in an effort to make better choices.

Exercise, in addition to diet, is another vital link in creating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle for pet dogs. All of us are aware of the dangers of obesity, but many of us may not know that poor nutrition may contribute to an increased risk of disease. Establishing an exercise program will help your “best friend” enjoy a healthy, happy life. Other factors that may influence the risk of cancer include environmental concerns like exposure to pesticides, stress and genetics.

Eric Houtkooper, CEO, states “At PupLife.com, we do what we can to educate ourselves and other dog owners on the latest trends in caring for our companion animals. In addition to seeking out the best products for dogs, we gather a wide array of information and make it available to our customers to aid them in creating the healthiest lifestyle possible.

2007 Wall Calendar will Fund Treatment for Dogs with Cancer

2007 Wall Calendar will Fund Treatment for Dogs with Cancer










Briarcliff Manor, NY (PRWEB) July 1, 2006

The Magic Bullet Fund seeks sponsors to cover production costs for the 2007 Brave Spirits calendar. One sponsor is needed for each month; there are currently 9 months available for sponsorship at $ 325.00 per month. Each sponsor will be acknowledged on one month’s page and will also have a 2.5” x 2.5” box on page 1. In this box, corporate sponsors may display a corporate ad or a discount coupon. Individual sponsors may display a tribute to their own (or a friend’s) dog. Sponsorships are tax deductible under the Perseus Foundation’s 501(c)(3) non-profit status. For more information, contact the Magic Bullet Fund by phone at (914) 941-0159.

The Magic Bullet Fund provides financial assistance to those who cannot afford treatment for their dogs with cancer. In October 2006, the fund will offer a 2007 wall calendar titled, “Brave Spirits.” Proceeds from sales of the Brave Spirits calendar will fund cancer treatment for dogs who would not otherwise be able to have treatment – to spare people from losing their beloved pets to cancer without making an attempt to save them. The calendar pays tribute to the 16 dogs featured on its pages and to all dogs who are fighting or have fought cancer. It raises public awareness about canine cancer and informs all dog lovers about various types of canine cancer. Medical information provided in the calendar will be reviewed by a veterinary oncologist.

Millions of pet dogs are diagnosed with cancer every year, yet many people are unaware of the high incidence of canine cancer and that sophisticated and relatively successful treatment is available for dogs with cancer. Many who would like to provide treatment for their dogs with cancer, hoping for a cure or remission, cannot afford the treatment costs.

The Magic Bullet Fund was established by Laurie Kaplan as a program of the Perseus Foundation, in honor of her own canine cancer survivor, Bullet. A medical animal writer, Kaplan authored the award-winning book “Help Your Dog Fight Cancer: An Overview of Home Care Options.” She explains the motivation for creating the Magic Bullet Fund: “Those of us who are able to provide treatment for our dogs with cancer are very fortunate. Those who cannot must receive assistance.”

*Advance purchases of the calendar may be placed at http://www.themagicbulletfund.org/calendar.html.

Background Information

Since its inception on November 20, 2005, the Magic Bullet Fund has provided financial assistance for six dogs with various types of cancer by coordinating with their veterinarians or veterinary oncologists. These dogs can be seen at the web site http://www.themagicbulletfund.org/donatefor.html. Kaplan and the Perseus Foundation are working to expand the Magic Bullet Fund’s financial base. We would like to see the fund assist in many more cases before the end of 2006 and into the future and proceeds from the Brave Spirits Calendar is one project that will help us to accomplish our goal.

Symptoms and Treatment Tips for Dogs with Diabetes

Symptoms and Treatment Tips for Dogs with Diabetes

Did you know that your dog is susceptible to getting diabetes?  Its true.  Older dogs are found to be at increased risk, as well as certain breeds, such as poodles, Old English Sheepdogs, Golden Retrievers, Daschunds, Miniature pinscher and schnauzer, and Beagles.

Diabetes is marked by the non production of insulin, causing blood glucose levels to rise in the blood.   Insulin must be given to lower high glucose levels.  For dogs, insulin made especially for them can help your dog live a normal happy life.

Two forms of Diabetes:

Diabetes Insipidus:  Is the the lack of the anti-diuretic hormone called Vasopressin.  Vasopressin controls how the kidneys absorb water.

Diabetes Mellitus (DM):  Is insulin insufficiency.  It is the most common and the most dangerous for dogs.  

Diabetes is comprised of two types:

Type 1 – Is insulin dependent diabetes.  The pancreas is not making insulin at all.  Type 1 is seen mostly in younger dogs.

Type 2 – Is non insulin dependent diabetes.  The pancreas is making insulin but the body is resistant to it. This type is mostly seen in older dogs.

Bigger dogs have a higher risk for diabetes than smaller dogs.  It is also an autoimmune disease that dogs can inherit from their parents.

Symptoms – If you notice that your dog is:

Eating more
Drinking more
Weighing less
 
Diagnostic Testing:

If your dog is showing symptoms of this disease, a visit to the vet is in order.  The vet will conduct blood tests to check your pet’s glucose level.  He will also do a urinalysis to check for kidney function and urinary tract infection. If your pet is positive for diabetes, changes in diet and getting more exercise will aid in reducing the symptoms and prevent complications.

Treatment:

Fido will most likely be put on a diet that is high in fiber and protein. Fats and carbohydrates will be restricted. Depending on the severity of your dog’s disease, you may need to feed him prepared meals instead of what is regularly eaten. Proper nutrition given the same time each day will help to keep glucose levels as normal as possible. Insulin is given after meals, and it is important to not limit your pet’s fluid intake. Let him have his fill.

Exercise:

Regular daily exercise at the same time each day helps to keep blood glucose down, thus preventing a detrimental affect of up and down glucose levels.   Glucose need to be consistently within normal levels.

Hormonal changes in your female dog puts her at higher risk for diabetes. Consider having her spayed prevent any undue complications of diabetes in dogs.

Barb Hicks is a licensed registered nurse and featured health writer on Clivir.com where you can find her onine classroom that discuss about Type 1 Diabetic Diet and Food and other information about Type 2 Diabetic Diet and Food.
