A bladder cancer diet for dogs will not offer a cure, but it can help your dog to fight off cancer and can even prevent some occurrences of cancer by strengthening immune system function.Â Bladder cancer is a difficult and painful disease and it can drain a lot of your dogâ€™s strength, which is why feeding him a proper diet can be so very important. About the Author:
A healthy immune system inhibits cancer causing cells from forming, thus reducing the likelihood of developing cancer.Â Therefore, it is of the utmost importance that a diet for dog with bladder cancer helps to support and maintain a healthy immune system.Â The further cancer progresses, the more likely it is to interfere with the bodyâ€™s natural defense system, so any help the body can derive from food is critical.
A bladder cancer diet for dogs should generally contain a good cross section of certain nutrients, including Vitamins C, D, and E.Â Minerals like copper, selenium and zinc are also important as are enzymes which help fight cancer causing pathogens.Â Certain natural items such as garlic and green tea have also been shown to have cancer inhibiting properties.
Additionally, a diet for dog with bladder cancer should be heavy in animal proteins.Â Raw meats including chicken, beef, turkey, fish and lamb all contain the necessary proteins and fats for building up the immune system and fighting off illness.Â Â Plant-based proteins and sugar can actually have a detrimental effect and should be avoided.
When considering a bladder cancer diet for dogs, it is important to remember that as cancer progresses, the metabolic processes of the body will change, effecting how it uses certain nutrients.Â This can lead to your dog rejecting certain foods, particularly if eating them becomes more uncomfortable. Â
Equally significant in treating cancer is the use of homeopathic remedies.Â Made from a special blend of plant based ingredients, these all natural products can not only ease symptoms but also strengthen the immune system to improve overall health.Â Combined with a special diet for dog with bladder cancer, they can give your dog all the ammunition it needs to fight back.
Although not a cure themselves, homeopathic remedies can help to soothe and treat your dogâ€™s symptoms and provide a boost to his natural defenses.Â Using a careful blend of plant based ingredients such as Cantharis, Staphysagris and Berberis, these products have antiseptic and antibacterial properties which can significantly boost the effectiveness of a bladder cancer diet for dogs to help make your dog stronger and better equipped to fight the disease.Â Â
No one likes to face the prospect of their four legged friend developing bladder cancer, but you can take hope in knowing there are things you can do to help.Â A combination of a diet rich in animal protein and all the necessary nutrients along with the use of safe, gentle homeopathic remedies can make all the difference.Â Donâ€™t let cancer get the best of your best friend, fight back the natural way.

Aggressive Behaviors in Small Dogs
Jillynn Stevens, Ph.D., MSW
Aggressive dogs are a major problem for many pet owners, and a justified cause for concern. Some canine experts refer to aggression in miniature breeds as small dog syndrome, the animal kingdom's version of a Napoleon complex. Unfortunately, many people fail to take this behavior seriously, believing that an aggressive small dog won't be able to cause much harm. Professional dog trainers do take this phenomenon seriously, however, and recommend that dog owners do the same. Fortunately, small dog syndrome can be successfully mitigated with proper training and follow-up....
The Worthiness of a Pet
I believe it essential that all children have a pet. I would prefer that they have a cat, a horse, or a dog, but I realize that animals such as these are not always possible because of size and space and allergies. These three, my favorites, have filled my life with goodness and wonder. They have also taught me about kindness, loyalty, and loss. My emotions become tied to my pets and as they sense this, they become linked to me. My husband says that this is because I feed them, but I think that our bond is deeper than that....

Injuries from dog bites can be much more dangerous and complex than you might initially think....
Dogs Bark! It Is A Fact We Need To Understand
Roger C Wilsher
Dogs bark. It is part of their normal and natural behaviour. There are good and appropriate reasons why dogs bark. It is to communicate. For example, when strangers approach the house, or they hear an odd noise, or they're herding sheep, dogs need to say something is up. Let's face it: Most of us want our dogs to be "watch dogs" and alert us to anything unusual. But to make sure the barking does not annoy, we need to understand why our dogs do it....
