How often can I give my dog medicine?

Question by ღJenniferღ: How often can I give my dog medicine?
My vet has given me medications to give my dog, but currently, my poor dog, Spike is sick ALOT. So he has 4 medications to take. I gave him the anti-biotic at 5:20 this afternoon, is it safe to now give him the other medicine, [ it is not an anti-biotic] bear in mind, this is a “steroid medicine”, for the itchy-ness.

Question Again: Is it safe to give him his medicine now?
Sarah: Yes! It is presidone 🙂
The 2nd Med is Cephexia

I am assuming it is prednisone. I don’t see why you would have to separate them at all, but I would contact your vet to find out if there is a time frame for each individual medication.

Why do people assume that all service/guide dogs are “in training”?

Question by Max: Why do people assume that all service/guide dogs are “in training”?
I use a guide dog. Whenever I’m out with her I get asked if I’m training her. She’s not in training (she’s been a guide dog for two years now), and doesn’t misbehave at all.
I don’t understand why the general public seems to think these dogs spend forever in training and never go to a disabled handler.
My friend is always asked if his dog is in training, when she’s not. His dog doesn’t look young like mine, she’s graying. So why do so many people assume that service dogs in public are just in training?

Answer by existenceisrelative
It’s an evil alien conspiracy to weaken the credibility of working dogs. When the entire world believes that all dogs are forever in training, that’s when the invasion begins.

People all around the world are determined to live a healthier life through exercise and by having proper nutritious food. But as we take care of our own health we should not forget to be conscious for the health of our pets too. Many companies have produced special food for fat, older or active dogs, but still they do not meet the proper requirement for the pet’s health.

AAFCO defines super premium food as those pet foods which contain no harmful ingredients, no useless fats color, flavor etc. It should contain proper amount of carbohydrate, protein, vitamin and other elements which help dogs to stay healthy.

According to the Animal Protection Institute, the protein that the dog requires comes from poultry, cattle, fish lambs and other animals which include almost half of the lungs, intestine and bones that are eatable by dogs.

Many grain products for dogs contain corn and other grains in the list. The main problem with grain products food for dogs is that it is less digestible.  It is seen that 20% of nutritional value of grains is lost once they enter the body. Products like peanuts hulls have no nutritional value but they are a cheap form of fiber. Low quality of food grains can harm your pet’s skin and may cause cancer or allergies. The grains used for pets can even be contaminated. If the food contains high toxin, then your pet may suffer from vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite or weight loss, liver damage or even death.
