Information to help keep your dog happy and healthy.
We have compiled a list of many different sources with helpful information for dog owners. Each of these sources has been reviewed by Dori before being added to the list.
Canine Heartworm Disease
The American Heartworm Society website has great information and animation on Heartworm disease, Click here for Canine Heartworm Video.
Giving your dog Medications
Giving your dog medications can be tricky. Some dogs are very good at taking medications then they walk away and you find the pill on the floor. Click here for some help on Giving your dog Medications Video .
Trimming your dog’s Nails
Many dogs do not like their feet touched, which makes trimming nails a chore. When your dog is relaxed, gently massage their feet, maybe just a few seconds at first, then increase the time as your dog accepts the attention. If he/she pulls feet away, that is okay, just try in a little while. Always praise your dog while gently touching their feet and massaging in between toes. Sometimes they only associate touching their feet with nail clipping. Make this a pleasurable time. Click here to learn more on Nail Trimming Video .

Vaccinations and diseases
Here is some information on different diseases that can affect your dog and what vaccinations maybe necessary.
The most mis-diagnosed disease in Greyhounds is hypothyroidism. Greyhounds have a normal low thyroid. Many Greyhounds are placed on Thyroid medication and in some cases it may not be necessary. Click on www.animalmedicalcentreofmedina.com for more information. There is a lot of great information on Greyhound Health. Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine also has some great greyhound information, click on Greyhounds to view their website.
The Siberian Husky is Dori’s (the owner) favorite. They are beautiful, powerful and extremely intelligent, but they are an often misunderstood breed. Many people believe that huskies need to be an outside dog and then leave them outside enabling them to become bored, escape artists who roam for miles in a very short time getting into a lot of trouble, which tends to get them shipped to a shelter. If you are considering sharing your home with a Siberian Husky, learn as much about this breed (as you should about ANY breed) before you bring one home. Learn all the good as well as the bad, talk to past and present owners of Siberians, talk to rescues, talk to breeders. The Siberian is truly a wonderful family dog, if you know what you are getting into and are willing to do some serious training. This is not recommended for a first dog owner. For more information, click on Siberian Husky Rescue Site for info on the breed and for rescues in your area.
Unfortunately, there is no licensed Siberian Husky Rescue in New Hampshire.
