Beware of the Cross Bred BE WARY OF INTERNET ADS SELLING PUPPIES!

The word BULLMASTIFF commands attention and so people use this word to sell their puppies.

Bullmastiff puppies all look fairly much alike, yet I have seen photos of white, narrow muzzled dogs with no mask, labeled as a Bullmastiff in an advertisement, just for one example.

Bullmastiff crossbreed-fake

The popularity of the internet has made the sale and advertising of dogs and puppies, very easy and affordable for everybody.

Sadly though, people can advertise whatever they like without any form of regulation, and as such, there are hundreds of dogs being advertised for sale as Bullmastiffs, that clearly are not!!

The current trend seems to be that with the ban of breeding Pit Bulls in Australia, they are now selling off Pit-bull puppies as Bullmastiff Crosses!

This is extremely dangerous and detrimental to the Bullmastiff breed.  PLEASE BE CAREFUL.

DO your homework before handing over your hard earned money. Look at as many puppies as you can.

The internet plays host to numerous websites of reputable, registered breeders, research those and familiarize yourself with what a purebred puppy looks like.

Go to dog shows, visit breeders and ONLY buy off a registered, reputable breeder that you feel completely comfortable with.

Make sure you are getting what you are paying for. Nikki Marshall

Bullmastiff crossbreed

THE BULLMASTIFF AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC

I think I might ask you, the reader, if you like dogs, that includes all breeds of dogs or will it BE YOUR DECISION and the governments to see the eventual ban of ALL dogs.

I know that many Bullmastiff breeders will agree with this article. So many times have I been stopped and asked by a person from the general public

“What breed of dog is that?”

Answer, “It is a Bullmastiff.”

person “OH there those really aggressive dogs!”

Answer, “Have you owned a Bullmastiff?”

“No I’ve just heard about them.”

The purpose of this article is to better inform YOU the general public about what they hear on a regular basis, but need to ask themselves the question

“Would you believe everything you see or hear just because it was on the Television or in the newspaper.”

A majority of World Wide Bullmastiff owners and breeders are up in arms as to how the media can insultingly label so many purebred dogs incorrectly and namely our breed the Bullmastiff.

I have certainly had my fair share with dealing with the media in response to the Bullmastiff, on Television, radio and the newspapers.

Bare in mind that newspapers and television programs would not exist without making news, whether it be true or not they in return need to profit from what they do, and as for a majority of breeders, Well we don’ profit.

We are the ones who are dedicated and defend our breed and consider ourselves to have far more knowledge about our breed than a reporter who probably never owned a dog in his or her life.

How many times have we heard or read “Bullmastiff or any other purebred dog has attacked…”

and how many times have we seen the accused dog’s pictured which DON’T even resemble the breed in question OR the media for no other reason but their own use other photos of dogs

(my views are to make their story seem more appealing, IT SELLS)

So who’s to blame?

1)  Well this is where the purchaser of the dog has NOT been correctly informed as to what breed of dog they are purchasing. WHY?

Because if a so called unregistered or unlicensed breeder (or more commonly known as a backyard breeder) tells you it is a purebred Bullmastiff or any other purebred dog or a Purebred Cross Bred Dog for that matter the breeder in return has a sales pitch and can sell the dog for a much higher price, in return the purchaser calls the dog a Bullmastiff or another purebred breed of dog.

2) With very little research by the reporter, they in return report that this particular dog either a PUREBRED DOGS NAME or A PUREBRED CROSSBRED DOGS NAME

Terminology of Crossbred:

“To produce by mating an animal with one of a different kind”

NO BREEDER OF CROSSBREEDS CAN PROVIDE PEDIGREE PAPERS WITH CROSSBREEDS! BECAUSE THE PARENTS ARE NOT OF THE SAME BREED!

Now I don’t know about everybody else but a crossbred dog is exactly that crossbred.

THAT DOES NOT RESEMBLE ONLY ONE PARENTS TRAITS CHARACTER OR TEMPERAMENT! BUT BOTH PARENTS.

So why does the media chose to call dogs a certain breed of crossbred for instance Bullmastiff X.

Yes it could very well be a Bullmastiff X, but that would mean that all Bullmastiffs (purebreds) or even Bullmastiff crossbreeds have the exact same character, temperaments and traits.

WRONG! If you were to breed two pedigree dogs of the same breed then it is a PUREBRED DOG.

Terminology of Pedigree:

“having a recorded line of descent that shows pure breeding or purebred”.

Where the dog is from know origin and has proof of papers that it is a registered Purebred dog.

IF you were to put two different breeds together (despite if the two different breeds are pedigreed) then it is still a CROSS BRED DOG.

With any PUREBRED dog they are bred to the guidelines of the breed standard which is the blueprint of the dogs makeup.

People who are searching for particular traits of a breed SHOULD therefore choose a PUREBRED dog and purchase their chosen breed from a REGISTERED BREEDER, for decades and even centuries purebred dogs have been bred for certain traits, temperaments and character.

If you want a different breed of dog where temperaments, character and traits are unknown as they have no history or have not been bred for any particular use or reason then purchase a CROSSBRED DOG.

In my opinion both partner and myself have owned several different breeds of dogs including crossbred dogs, and have always considered that there is no such problem as a dog problem only an irresponsible owner.

I have provided no more than facts to you the general public to form your own opinion.

But keep in mind that you too are only jumping on the media bandwagon when you the general public discriminate against those who are generally dedicated and responsible owners who choose to own these breeds.

Have the freedom of choice when you decide to choose a breed of dog.

Types And Reasons of Allergies in Dogs

In the below article you will read all about Types And Reasons of Allergies in Dogs. Much the same as a human, puppies can demonstrate hypersensitive manifestations when their insusceptible frameworks start to perceive certain regular substances-or allergens-as perilous. Despite the fact that these allergens are normal in many situations and safe to most creatures, a pooch with sensitivities will have an outrageous response to them. Allergens can be tricky when breathed in, ingested or contact a puppy’s skin. As his body tries to free itself of these substances, an assortment of skin, stomach related and respiratory side effects may show up.

Types And Reasons of Allergies in Dogs

PLANT ALLERGIES IN DOGS

Over the years we have come across many problems with certain plants that can cause devastating effects to dogs. In one case a dog that we had bred and who had a very normal puppy hood suddenly appeared to have a server allergic reaction. Clinical signs were swelling of the face, scratching, eyes swelling, and diarrhea and weight loss.

Allergies are extremely hard to diagnose as it is a process of elimination and trying to work out if it is plant or food related. In this case it was plant related and the culprit Wandering Jew. The female Bullmastiff was rubbing up and down the fence where the Wandering Jew was growing, relieving herself from seasonal molting.

The only true test to see if what she had was an environment allergen or a food allergen was to remove her from her surroundings. Three days later her allergy started to subside thankfully. Since her owners moved house no more symptoms. After seeing how much damage a plant could cause to a dog I investigated a little further and spoke to specialists about problems of dogs being in contact with poisonous plants and was amazed to hear that almost 90% of allergies in dogs was pollen and plant related, and unfortunately some cases had been misdiagnosed as food allergies thus some dogs being left on medications for the rest of their lives and still in contact with the allergen. Other signs of plant allergies are watery irritable eyes, rash on the belly or other hairless areas like the nose constant rubbing and itching and biting their feet which are usually related to a grass allergy. When pollens are at their best spring airborne inhalants like tree and plant pollens can also have the same effect be observant have a look around your dogs environment see what is in flower. If it is a seasonal allergen it will most likely subside as the season wears on but again seek veterinary advice as in most cases an anti-inflammatory will need to be prescribed to relive your pet from these irritating symptoms.

FOOD ALLERGIES IN DOGS

Occasionally dogs can suffer from food allergies or intolerance which can be caused by one or two ingredients in your dogs diet.  Symptoms of food allergies or intolerance are usually diarrhea itching or vomiting or all three. Other symptoms can be yeast ear infections or bacterial skin infections. This is where the hard part comes finding out which ingredient is the culprit. The most common culprit in food allergies is protein e.g. beef, eggs, wheat gluten and lamb. As I had described in feeding that milk can also cause diarrhea this would be considered as intolerance not an allergen.

food-allergies in dogs

Now comes your part where you will need to be prepared when you go to your veterinarian. Compile a list of what your dog has been eating this will help in trying to find out which offending ingredient is the culprit. In order to find what ingredient your dog is allergic to is a process of elimination, which will require a special diet which needs to also be a balanced diet. Special diets (for a special diet to work you must be prepared to only feed what your veterinarian has told you and not be tempted to feed anything else) are fed over a six week period sometimes longer if over this time itching diarrhea occur again then you may be on the right track to finding the culprit. Obviously if you have found the ingredient that has been causing your dog grief then you avoid feeding him that particular ingredient. Be patient it will take time and there is no overnight cure.

OTHER ENVIRONMENTAL ALLERGIES IN DOGS

As I have described above there are other materials that your dog could also be allergic to house dust, moulds, soaps, insecticides, wool or nylon carpet, paint, metals plastics and wood preservatives. Again itchy skin and a process of elimination.

If your dog has not had an allergy before then it is most likely something new that he has been in contact with recently. Be observant watch what they are in contact with through the day. Have you tried a new cleaning product recently changed your dogs bedding it can be something simple or something that will take time and again a process of elimination.

Top 10 Best Dog Food Choices

Its difficult to select healthy best dog food choices . Eating habits of dogs are a lot like human beings. They are omnivores, so they have a large variety of eatables to choose from. They have the option of eating meat, grains and vegetables for keeping them lively all day. Dog’s nutrition has similarities to human food so they have a lot to choose from. Think of you when it comes to eating choices and habits and the same is the case is with dogs. But remember, like the human body, dogs too need a very well balanced diet to fill their tummy. Dogs are prone to diabetes and they might get it, if you are not careful about their food.

Top 10 Best Dog Food Choices

There are some very important factors to take into consideration when it comes to daily food feeding. You must know the AGE of your dog, their daily activities and the ideal weight for your specific dog breed. Different dog breeds need different level of food intake per day as they have completely different set of activities and breed traits. Just for your ease take the example of a well grown 8-10 year old Chihuahua that spends the most of time in your lap laying, it doesn’t need too much of a diet to pass the day, while on the other hand a young German Shepherd needs plenty of food because it is more used of doing exercise like running around, jumping and other stuff. While a well grown hound dog needs a good amount of food as it runs a lot all day.

Although the dog food products have labels on them for you guidance, but they are generic and may not be specifically tailored for your pet. The best food advice you can get is from is your vet, as he/she knows your pet’s condition and is always in a better position to suggest the best food for the perfect health of your dog. You must remember that dog’s food depends upon the condition of your pet. Moreover, vet can recommend some specific food that shall come in handy to protect your pet from getting potential diseases. According to the doctors, larger dogs are more likely to develop diseases like arthritis as compared to small sized dogs. And in situations like this, your vet can help you reduce the risk of getting diseases.

How much food your pet needs?

Once again your vet is the best option to calculate how much food your dog needs per day. You cant find this useful information on the back of dog food products. You should see the food labels for the amount of calories they contain, and with that information you or your vet can efficiently decide how much your dog needs per day. Make sure you buy only those pet food products that meet the minimum requirements set by the Association of American Feed Control Officials. Any dog food that falls below that standard is hazardous to your dog’s health.

Your vet can also help you to select the most suitable food for your pet and your pocket.  A lot of owners like to prepare the very first dog meal, but you should first learn to make the meal that meets the demand of your dog and your vet can certainly help here too. You can never say that you made the best food choice for your dog before feeding it. If your dog is active and lively after their feeding time and they have solid stools then your choice was a good one, but if they show signs of vomiting, gassing or they feel lazy then its time for you to cook up a better food strategy.

Remember you MUST not change food plan abruptly, the best strategy is to mix the new food gradually into the already served food. Start with 75-25 combination, 75 percent old and 25 percent new and gradually with time shift it to 75 percent new and 25 percent old.

Coconut Oil for Dogs – Scented, Savory Coconut Oil as an Effective Remedy for Ticks

Spring comes with ticks

Every year, we look forward to the spring after the long dark winter. Dog owners move their four-legged friends in any weather, but during the beautiful season man and animal walks enjoy even more. However, with the rising temperatures, there is a worry that you could forget during the cold winter months. On natural meadows and in the forest, where your dog is particularly joyful, there is a risk of ticking from February to November.

These parasites spread more and more in Germany, are active from about 7 degrees, and feel particularly comfortable in wet weather and temperatures around 20 degrees.

Ticks are spinning animals that feed on the blood of their victims, which they also need for their reproduction. A tick can take 200 times its weight in the form of blood and up to 3,000 eggs. These alone are frightening ideas. Much worse, however, is that ticks can transmit various dangerous diseases to humans and animals.

Small Animals – Great Danger

The disease with which ticks humans and animals most frequently infect is borreliosis. According to estimates, more than 900,000 people are currently chronically ill with borreliosis in Germany. How many dogs have been infected or have gone through the disease is not known. However, the numbers will also be considerable, since dogs are much more common than people walking in high grass or under low bushes. Right here in ticks up to 1.5 meters high ticks on their victims. They leap to the dog in front of them and look for a place on their body where they can be found.

While it receives the dog’s blood, the tick filters out the substances it does not need, and then releases them again. In this way, the pathogens of a tick infected with borreliosis enter the circulatory system of the dog. After an incubation period of 2 to 90 days, fever and loss of appetite occur in the infected dog. It may be because of a joint inflammation lamented or overall ill and indifferent acts. Partially, however, the disease remains unintentionally because none of the symptoms mentioned occur. In the late stage the heart and kidneys are often damaged.

Ticks can also infect dogs with babesiosis, anaplasmosis or the inflammation of the epidermis. Apart from anaplasmosis, all of these diseases are often severe or even fatal.

Long-haired Dogs are particularly Vulnerable

 Coconut Oil for Dogs-dachshund A tick bite is not only an annoyance, but also seriously compromises your dog’s health. Therefore, responsible animal lovers should take dog protection very seriously.

After each walk in the nature the dog has to be thoroughly searched. Whoever is lucky and fast, catches the tick before she bites. In long-haired dogs, ticks can hide very well. Here, a comb performs excellently. The dangerous spiders find the place where they bite. Preferably, they choose warm, well-perfused parts such as the throat, ears, belly or face. Even if ticks have already begun with blood suction, it is important to remove them as quickly as possible. The parasites do not excrete the disease exciters, which are possibly present in their intestines, after 12 to 24 hours.

To remove a tick, hold it as close to the dog’s skin as possible with a tick or fingernails and pull it out slowly and carefully. Under no circumstances should you apply ticks with oil or glue as it is sometimes advised. This is of no avail, the ticks do not let go, but they give more and more potentially dangerous substances to the blood of their victims.

 

Ticks before the Bite

Even if the ticks are quickly found and withdrawn, there is a risk of infection. Therefore, the best solution is a tick protection for dogs, which prevents the dangerous parasites from settling on your four-legged companion.

Widely used are vermin tapes, which emit lethal toxins for parasites and additionally deter their ticks and fleas.

However, this tick is not safe for dogs and humans. There are dogs that are sensitive to the substances that the collar provides to the skin. They will salivate strongly, become restless or even get heart problems.

If your dog is wearing a cervical vertebra, be sure to wash your hands thoroughly after stroking them. If you have several dogs, which also mutually stain each other, the animals in this way possibly absorb more toxins than they can tolerate.

This is similar to spot-on combat. Chemical substances for the deterrence and killing of ticks and other parasites are dripped between the shoulder blades of the dog. During the first 12 hours after treatment the dog should not be stroked. After this, the poison is absorbed, spreads on the skin of the animal and is also released to the blood. This is also a method of treatment that rugged dogs are usually without obvious symptoms, but sensitive animals suffer partially.

In households where small children live, vermin tapes and spot-ons should not be used at all or only in absolute emergency.

What do you do when you, on the other hand, want to protect your pet from ticks, as a responsible dog owner, on the other hand, want to avoid chemical ticks because they can be dangerous for humans and dogs?

Ticks Spoil the Taste without Endangering Dogs and Humans

 Coconut Oil for Dogs-Dog-playing In the ideal case, a tick should not be a burden on the dog and should not pose any health hazards for adults and children in the environment of the animal. Until now, many dog ​​owners had to experience that purely biological and thus harmless active ingredients also little or not impress the ticks.

Whether amber necklace, geranium oil or tea tree oil – the effect of these harmless substances is rather weak or not at all.

Recently, however, it has been scientifically proven that a substance which is completely harmless to human beings and dogs, even edible, works perfectly as tick protection. Employees of the FU Berlin investigated the effect of coconut oil as a protection against ticks and other parasites. They found that the lauric acid, from which Dr. Goerg’s natural coconut oil is up to 60 percent, prevents ticks from settling on humans. It is understood that the results of this scientific study can also be applied to dogs and cats.

The scientists worked with a 10% lauric acid solution. The concentration of the active substance was thus considerably weaker than in natural coconut oil. Nevertheless, the test gave impressive results. 88 per cent of the ticks were able to fall from the skin of the test persons coated with the solution and fled. In countries with a humid-warm climate, such as India, this effect has been known for ticks for centuries. There, the people bury themselves before a stay in the free nature arms, legs and head with coconut oil.

Delicious, Healthy and Effective against Ticks?

But how is Coconut Oil practically used as a tick protection for Dogs?

At the beginning of the treatment, the dog should be fed with the native oil daily before the walk. At room temperature, coconut oil is firm but very soft on warm skin. Depending on the size of your dog, add a pea to walnut-sized amount between the fingers, knead them, and then spread the oil on the palms. Then brush your dog over the fur with both hands. In particular, you should pay attention to the body parts on which the ticks prefer to settle: the face, the ears, the neck and the belly. To rub the face and ears, you can also add some oil on a soft cloth.

After the walk you should, however, as with every other tick protection, your dog nevertheless thoroughly search. If you find ticks, take a little more of the coconut oil and / or distribute it even more carefully.

After about two weeks, you can switch to a more rare treatment for many dogs, especially for short-haired ones. Often it is enough to rub the dog only two or three times a week.

In addition, it is helpful to regularly add some coconut oil to your dog’s food. Because a high level of lauric acid in the blood is more detrimental to ticks. By the way, coconut oil is a valuable, easily digestible food additive whose positive effect against viruses, bacteria and fungi is also known for its internal use.

Coconut Oil also works against Fleas and Mites

Fleas also reliably sell coconut oil in dogs. If the fleas are already in the fur before the treatment, the lauric acid dissolves its chitin-armor, and the annoying pests die.

In the months of August to October, many dogs produce the autumn mites, which like ticks prefer to live on meadows and roadsides. Their bites lead to agonizing itching and inflammation, and the dogs bite their paws bloody. Here, too, pre-treatment with coconut oil helps prevent the autumn mites from biting.

 Coconut Oil for Dogs-Dog-racing

Beautiful Fur and Healthy Paws

If the paws are already damaged by mite bites, coconut oil alleviates the itching and heals or prevents inflammation. If the dog licks his paws off, he does not harm him. If you want the coconut oil to last longer, help small socks.

In winter you can avoid damage caused by streaks, granules, ice and cold, by applying coconut oil to the paws. At any time of the year, dogs’ paws are made supple with coconut oil. Cracks and cracks on the bales disappear or do not even arise.

 creature If you regularly rub your dog with native coconut oil, your hands will be soft as a whole. And what does it mean to protect your own arms and legs with the nourishing, fragrant coconut oil from ticks and other vermin?

 

Worms and Giardies do not Like Coconut Oil

In addition to the so-called ectoparasites such as ticks and fleas, which attack our dogs externally, endoparasites nest in the form of worms and Giardia in the intestine of dogs and multiply there rapidly. In the meantime, many veterinarians advise against preventive deworming in dogs. There is a suspicion that the endoparasites are permanently resistant to chemical worming agents. In addition, many dogs are sensitive to the substances they swallow during deworming.

However, worms or giardies have been settled domestically in the intestine of the dog and are so strongly multiplied that the animal shows symptoms in the form of diarrhea, loss of appetite, etc., a chemical deworming can usually no longer be avoided.

During and shortly after this treatment, the dog is particularly prone to a new infection with endoparasites. Again, treatment with coconut oil can be helpful. Simply mix a teaspoon of coconut oil into the feed per 20 kilograms of weight. However, you should not administer too much of the oil to your dog because the fat can then trigger diarrhea again. A four-week course has proved itself after an attack with worms or Giardien.

The effect of the oil is due to the fact that it is deposited on the intestinal mucous membranes and thus prevents the parasites from being caught. These can not come in and are excreted with the excrement. Therefore the regular addition of coconut oil to the feed is an excellent way to protect dogs from worms and giards. Thus, your dog is spared the chemical lobe of deworming with conventional means, and the parasites are not resistant to dewormers. In addition, the oral administration of coconut oil supports the defense of ectoparasites such as ticks and fleas.

In summary, coconut oil for dogs can be said: This food stuffs are used internally and externally in the four-legged animals against a variety of parasites and is thereby not only harmless, but also well-tolerated, healthy and delicious.

Cocoa Flakes – Dogs love them, Worms look for the Vastness

  Just like coconut oil, coconut flakes, which most dogs love to take, are also an effective preventive against worms and giards. Like the oil of the coconut, they contain the effective lauric acid. In addition, the ballast-rich flakes in the intestine create a surface that makes it difficult for the parasites to nest.

 

Coconut Oil For Dogs, Cats and Horses Better Health

The nutrition of human beings’ pets is almost as unhealthy as that of humans. For example, dogs and cats either get cooked food from waste and leftovers, or they get dried food, which is virtually “dead” and so good As no longer has any nutrients.

Coconut oil for dogs, cats and horses for Better Health

No wonder that many dogs, cats and horses suffer from food intolerance, with all the unpleasant consequences, such as stomach trouble, allergies, etc. And even the coat looks dull and unkempt despite regular brushing. In addition, the animals – particularly when they are often outside – are repeatedly attacked by parasites during the spring and summer months, for example, ticks and fleas.

In order to treat dog, cat and Co. naturally and nevertheless effectively, a high-quality coconut oil should be used. It is suitable for internal as well as for external use and works equally against all kinds of parasites and on the whole digestive tract of the animals. By the regular addition of coconut oil to the feed they can better tolerate this, and also allergic reactions to certain ingredients in the feed occur much less frequently.

–> Coconut oil as a remedy for ticks in dogs

Scarcely a dog comes through spring and summer, without being attacked by ticks.
