Wild Mongoose Attack Turkey

Earlier this week the "small five VET CLINIC" got an emergency call from one of our patrons.

One of her turkeys had been attacked by a suspected mongoose troop causing severe trauma to the right limb thigh muscles and ripping off part of under-belly tissue.

Our team was able to handle this carefully and is glad the turkey lives to see another day.

How to wash / groom a dog

  1. It is advisable to use warm water as this will ease body grease removal. We recommend cleaning your pet at least once a week. 
  2. Clean the whole body first then finish with the head to minimize eye irritation. 
  3. Wet the body hair surface, use a normal bar soap for initial cleaning. This removes the body grease and prepares the skin for shampoo action. Rinse off the soap. 
  4. Ask for the best medicinal shampoo next time you visit your vet. 
  5. To allow the shampoo (medicinal/anti-parasitic) to work effectively, apply shampoo evenly over the whole body, soak for 5-10 minutes with the right shampoo 
  6. Rinse off the excess shampoo using warm water. Now clean the head using the same procedure but within 2 minutes. 
  7. Use a dry clean towel to dry your dog. You can as well let your pet dry in the open field

Dog Fight

Did you know that dogs are extremely territorial?
Did you know that these cute creatures submit to hierarchies?

Dogs will fight for space, mates, feed and attention. Some will fight to death.

To avoid unnecessary veterinary costs and prevent dog fights (like in the graphic images below) please isolate Alphas' from Omega's, make sure they get enough quality feed. Daily walks and exercise reduces the testosterone levels hence a calm effect.

Neutering plays a big role in taming aggressive dogs.

Now you know :-)
