TREATMENT FOR BURNS : SUGGESTIONS

The more I see of humans, The more I love Dogs


TREATMENT FOR BURNS AND SCALD : SUGGESTIONS

a) When handling or treating a dog that has burnt, be careful. Burns are very painful and animals in pain resent being handled. A good tape muzzle or a competent assistant is essential.

b) In serious cases, where the dog has been badly burned, treat first for shock. Keep the dog warm and give it a mixture of glucose and water.

c) Relieve the pain by administering analgesics.

d) Then clean the area around the burn with a dilute solution of Cetavion (available in drug store) to remove any damaged tissues.

e) Apply tannic acid jelly or Burnol or a solution of cooled strong tea to the burnt area.

f) Bandage the area to prevent further fluid loss. It is this loss of fluid that creates serious problems in burn cases.

g) In very serious cases, wrap the dog in a blanket and get it to a vet surgeon.


TREATMENT FOR CHEMICAL BURNS : SUGGESTIONS


a) Use soap and water to wash the chemical off the dog's hair and skin.

b) For acid burns, apply dilute bicarbonate of soda to the burnt area. For alkali burns apply vinegar and water.,

c) Apply cortisone cream or cetavion on the burn.

HOME REMEDY: FOR BURNS

The more I see of humans, The more I love Dogs

It is quite possible that your dog may suffer from burns, being as naughty as they are. It is very painful and has to be treated immediately before rushing it to the vet in case of severe burns.

If possible give an aspirin as first aid. The commonest burns occur on the pads as the animal walks or is chased over hot ash or cinders. If the surface is unbroken or blistered, cover it with a dry, clean pad and bandage the whole feet. If the surface is broken, use any soothing ointment and bandage the feet.

The second most common burns are scales on the back caused by spilling
hot water or food as the dog gets under feet near the stove. Apply a many tailed bandage tied underneath. Remember these symptoms usually takes days to show. You can use a soothing ointment if skin is broken, but only a dry gauze if it is blistered.

A burn is caused by dry heat, such as a flame. A scald is caused by moist heat,a such as steam. But the difference is that of name. Practically since the symptoms for both are same, the same type of treatment would  apply.

CHEMICAL BURNS:

Causes : Caustic soda, sulphuric acid, hydrochloric acid, diesel oil, etc.( A note on diesel oil: animals often come into contact with diesel oil when they go under a parked vehicle.)


Description :

1. A chemical burn resembles a scald. It is moist and oozing.

2 The hair around the burn usually falls off.

3 If the animal has tried to drink the chemical, there will be ulcers around its muzzle and tongue.




WISHING YOU A VERY HAPPY AND MERRY  CHRISTMAS!!

HOME REMEDY: FOR TONGUE INJURY

RThe more I see of humans, The more I love Dogs

TONGUE INJURY


A bitten tongue is frequently seen in a dog and can be very serious.


Symptoms:


Profuse bleeding from the mouth.


Home treatment:  A bitten tongue may sound like a minor mishap, but if the bleeding is very heavy, then it must be considered an emergency. Since the tongue is constantly moist and moving, it is very difficult for a blood clot to form, so the bleeding is continuous, and if the cut is deep enough, the dog may bleed to death




Fortunately, it would take several hours, at the least, for this to happen, which gives you plenty of time to get the dog to a doctor. If it is possible, that is, if the dog will allow it, hold its tongue in a cotton pad to reduce the bleeding, while you are transporting the animal to the veterinary surgeon. Sometimes putting a lump of sugar and holding it on the tongue can reduce the flow of blood to a great extent.





NOSE BLEED

The more I see of humans, The more I love Dogs

NOSE BLEED


Nose bleeds are symptoms and the dog owner should be more concerned with the cause than with the nose bleed itself. In most cases a nose bleed will stop of its own accord fairly quickly.

Nose bleeds can be the result of :

1. Car accidents
2. A sharp blow
3. Tumours
4. Decayed tooth sockets
5.Excessive sneezing
6.Foreign bodies in the nose
7.High BLOOD PRESSURE
8.Minute parasites in the nose


TREATMENT:


a) The nostrils should be sponged dry with cotton wool.

b)Get a torch light and carefully examine the nostrils to see if the cause or site of the hemorrhage is visible. if your dog is calm and well trained, you should be able to do it yourself: otherwise you may need an assistant. If you can see the foreign body and if your dog remains calm, you may remove it with the help of a pair of tweezers. If you do not see any thing, PLEASE DO NOT POKE ABOUT IN THE ANIMAL'S NOSTRILS.

c) If the cause of the nose bleed is not visible, then keep the dog as still as possible, Apply COLD COMPRESSES or ICE CUBES to the bridge of the nose.

d) DO NOT STUFF OR PACK THE NOSTRILS. This will just make the dog sneeze and make the bleeding worse.

Tip of the nose needs careful attention. Bleeding from the tip of the nose can be both persistent, and if too much blood is lost, potentially dangerous!  It can be controlled by pressure with the fingers. If the bleeding persists, rush to the vet.

AGILE DOGS

The more I see of humans, The more I love Dogs



AGILE AND FAST DOGS


AFGHAN HOUNDS - twists and turns and can leap like a monkey.

IBIZAN HOUND - can jump high from a standstill.

OLD ENGLISH SHEEP DOG - very agile at speed.

PHARAOH HOUND - very lithe and agile.

POINTER - Athletic.

GREYHOUND - takes the prize most of the times. It is the 18th fastest land mammal in the world, reaching 70 kmph. Among dogs it is the fastest breed in the world for distances upto half a mile, after which it can be passed by a WHIPPET. The top speed is of course the peak speed in a sprint and cannot be maintained for long, but an average of 67 kmph has been recorded  over 375 metres. Some of the popular winners from the past are:

1. Chief Pilot  covered 600 metres at a rate of 38 mph in Australia, maintaining a speed of 38.5 mph over the first 440 yards.

2. Master Magrath celebrated courser owned by Lord Lurgan, raced from 1867 to 1873 , was beaten only once, won the Waterloo Cup three times in succession.

3. Mick The Miller born in 1926, winner of the Derby twice then won ten consecutive races.

4.Pigalle Wonder:  480 metres in 28.4 seconds in Derby heats, and he also broke 29 seconds and many records.

5. Trevs Perfection won the English Greyhound Derby in 28.96 seconds over a distance of 536 yards, averaging 37.1 mph.

WHIPPET - better than a greyhound at maintaining speed if the distance is more than half a mile, but was bred for snap trails where its remarkable acceleration was fully tested. A time of 12 seconds over 200 yards is not unusual ( a trained human athlete  might do a 100 yards in 10 seconds and a fast race horse's speed over one and a half miles would be a fraction of a second slower than the sprinting whippet's. A speed of 56.8 km/hr over 200 yards has been recorded for a whippet.

SALUKI - slightly faster than the AFGHAN. 43 mph has been claimed, and one was said to have been  paced by a car travelling at 55 mph.
