- Is my dog sick because of this flea medicine?
- Q: My puppy who is 7 months old. He has had a bad flea problem. I took him to the vet for a flea bath a couple of weeks ago and he got his rabies vaccine then as well. He has had all of his other shots too and they are up-to-date. Well aside from his flea bath which didn’t help. I was giving him about a bath a week for 3 weeks with that Seargant’s Gold Shampoo which is supposed to remove fleas and ticks. then I bought some Hartz UltraGuard spray but only sprayed that on him twice. Last time being the other night. Well he hasn’t ate anything in the past two days. He is lethargic. He even had some clear drool coming from his mouth on occasion. He is just acting really weird. goes off by himself and just sleeps. I took him to the vet today because I became worried once I saw the drool and the vet said since he had his rabies shot then she was sure it was just a bug or it could possibly be overexposure to flea medicine. She gave him 3 shots of antibiotics, a counteractive shot for the flea medicine just incase and a dose of aspirin and some take home antibiotics. He is still kinda having the clear drool but seems to sort of be perking up. But he is still laying around and doesn’t come when I call. Was this from the flea medication? did I put too much on him or just possibly a bug? He had no fever or any signs of anything, other than what I have mentioned. Thank you. I am really worried.THANK YOU ALL FOR THE ADVICE. I FEEL SO BAD! I wasn’t thinking about the chemicals. i was just thinking about getting those fleas off. The vet gave him tons of meds so I hope he is okay. thanks for the help. Really!

- QUESTION ABOUT MY SICK DOG AND FOOD?
- Q: Long story I will try to make it short but basically my dog has been throwing up for over a month now once a day everyday. She has been to the vets since the begginning of when the vomiting started was put on antibiotics and they did nothing for the vomiting but did reduce her fever that she had. The antibiotics were for 21 days that is why this has been dragging on. I have been in contact with the vet daily letting them know changes or improvements. About half way through the pills I contacted the vet and let them know she wasn’t improving but not getting worse and they thought she may have developed a food intolerance because she wasn’t eating anymore and still vomiting. I didn’t want her to go without food so tried anything just to get her to eat something and literally the only thing I could get her to eat was that crappy Cesar dog canned/packaged wet food slices, which I know is really crappy food. Anyways she still kept vomiting everyday so I called the vet and they wanted me to come in and purchase their dog food which I did and my dog vomited almost immediately after only having 1 tablespoon of it. So today I called the vet and told them I want to bring her in rather then them giving me advice on the phone(which I wanted to do all along but they were convinced it was the food). So we went in today and got blood work done, but my dog hasn’t eaten in 2 days so I cooked up some lean ground beef and rice and mixed it in with her dry food and she gobbled it right up so I gave her a second dose of that tonight. So far so good. My question is if this is. if I am going to be feeding her until I can find out what the problem is, what should I be adding to it as I presume dog food has all the right necessary vitamins etc that dogs need. Should I be adding in anything special or is this ok temporarily?Blood test results don’t come back until tmw but if it shows nothing I will have to take her in for xrays and possibly an ultra sound because if it’s nothing detected int he blood they think it could be something in the uterus due to her giving birth a few months ago. We will see tmw. THANKS
- A: You are doing amazing!! Great job. The cooked ground beef and rice with dry dog food is great…You can also cook up skinless chicken instead of the beef if need be.Great Job and Good Luck!

- A: The most famous event in the history of Alaskan mushing is the 1925 serum run to Nome, also known as the “Great Race of Mercy.” A diphtheria epidemic threatened Nome, especially the Inuit children who had no immunity to the “white man’s disease,” and the nearest quantity of antitoxin was in Anchorage. Since the two available planes were both dismantled and had never been flown in the winter, Governor Scott Bone approved a safer route. The 20-pound (9 kg) cylinder of serum was sent by train 298 miles (480 km) from the southern port of Seward to Nenana, where it was passed just before midnight on January 27 to the first of twenty mushers and more than 100 dogs who relayed the package 674 miles (1,085 km) from Nenana to Nome. The dogs ran in relays, with no dog running over 100 miles (160 km).The Norwegian Gunnar Kaasen and his lead dog Balto arrived on Front Street in Nome on February 2 at 5:30 a.m., just five and a half days later. The two became media celebrities, and a statue of Balto was erected in Central Park in New York City in 1925, where it has become one of the most popular tourist attractions. However, most mushers consider Leonhard Seppala and his lead dog Togo to be the true heroes of the run. Together they covered the most hazardous stretch of the route, and carried the serum farther than any other team.The Iditarod was the brainchild of Dorothy G. Page (the “Mother of the Iditarod”), who wanted to sponsor a sled dog race to honor mushers. With the support of Joe Redington, Sr. (the “Father of the Iditarod”), the first race (then known as the Iditarod Trail Seppala Memorial Race in honor of Leonhard Seppala) was held in 1967 and covered 25 miles (40 km) near Anchorage. The purse of USD $25,000 attracted a field of 58 racers, and the winner was Isaac Okleasik. The next race, in 1968, was canceled for lack of snow, and the small $1,000 purse in 1969 only drew 12 mushers.Redington was the impetus behind extending the race more than 1,000 miles (1,600 km) along the historic route to Nome, and a major fundraising campaign which raised a purse of $51,000. The first true Iditarod was held in 1973, and attracted a field of 34 mushers, 22 of whom completed the race. The event was a success; even though the purse dropped in the 1974 race, the popularity caused the field of mushers to rise to 44, and corporate sponsorship in 1975 put the race on secure financial footing. Despite the loss of sponsors during a dog abuse scandal in 1976, the Iditarod caused a resurgence of recreational mushing in the 1970s, and has continued to grow until it is now the largest sporting event in the state. While the race was originally patterned after the All Alaska Sweepstakes, the Iditarod Trail Committee promotes it as a commemoration of the serum delivery.Start of the Iditarod National Historic Trail in SewardStart of the Iditarod National Historic Trail in SewardThe race’s namesake is the Iditarod Trail, which was designated as one of the first four National Historic Trails in 1978. The trail in turn is named for the town of Iditarod, which was an Athabaskan village before becoming the center of the Inland Empire’s Iditarod Mining District in 1910, and then turning into a ghost town at the end of the local gold rush. The name Iditarod may be derived from the Athabaskan haiditarod, meaning “far distant place”.The main route of the Iditarod trail extends 938 miles (1,500 km) from Seward in the south to Nome in the northwest, and was first surveyed by Walter Goodwin in 1908, and then cleared and marked by the Alaska Road Commission in 1910 and 1911. The entire network of branching paths covers a total of 2,450 miles (3,945 km). Except for the start in Anchorage, the modern race follows parts of the historic trail.
