 K-9 German Shepherds

Law Enforcement K-9 German Shepherds or K9 is an abbreviation and homophone of Canine. It may refer to a variety of entries, most related to dogs.

The term originated in the military, where designations such as G-2 are common, making K-9 a rare official pun, being similar to "canine".

The term, originally referencing war dogs, has since carried over to police, and sentry and assistance/service dogs as well.

Police dogs are in widespread use across the United States. K-9 units are operated on the federal, state, county, and local level and are utilized for a wide variety of duties, similar to those of other nations. Although most Americans perceive these animals as attack dogs, their duties generally include drug, bomb, and weapon detection and cadaver searches. The most common police dogs used for everyday duties are German Shepherds, though other breeds may be used to perform specific tasks.

8 Dog Mouth Disorders You Need to Be Aware Of

Whenever people think about dog mouth disorders, they most likely think of gingivitis or just a bad case of doggy breath.  However, there are several problems that can occur in your dog’s mouth that you should be aware of. 

1)    Periodontal disease. 

This is a painful infection that occurs between the tooth and the gum.  It can result in tooth loss and if not treated, can spread to the rest of the body.  The most common initial symptoms include loose teeth, bad breath, tooth pain, sneezing and nasal discharge.

2)    Gingivitis. 

This condition is an inflammation of the gums, caused mainly by plaque and tartar build-up.  To prevent it, you should try your hardest to inhibit disease-producing bacteria from invading your dog’s mouth.  Brush his teeth regularly and check them weekly.  Signs include bleeding, red, swollen gums and bad breath.

3)    Halitosis. 

Halitosis is also known as bad dog breath.  It is often the first sign of mouth issues and is caused by bacteria growing from food particles caught between the teeth or by gum infection.  If not treated, it can lead to more serious dental problems.  You can reverse halitosis by brushing your dog’s teeth regularly and getting them cleaned by the veterinarian.

4)    Swollen gums. 

These develop when tartar builds up and food gets stuck between the teeth.  They are also an initial sign of dental problems and can lead to more serious diseases if not treated.  You can also prevent swollen gums through teeth cleaning and regular visits to the vet for check-ups.

5)    Proliferating gum disease. 

This occurs when the gum grows over the teeth.  It must be treated to avoid further infection.  It can be treated with antibiotics and is common in certain dog breeds, such as boxers and bull terriers.  Usually, it is hereditary and you cannot do much to prevent it except for keep an eye on your dog’s mouth.

6)    Mouth tumors. 

These appear as lumps in the gums.  They must be tested by a veterinarian to determine if they are benign or malignant.  Surgically removing the tumors is the only way to treat this problem.

7)    Salivary cysts. 

Salivary cysts are large, unpleasant, fluid-filled blisters under the tongue or near the corners of the jaw.  To treat them, a veterinarian must drain them and remove the damaged saliva gland.

8)    Canine distemper teeth. 

This occurs most often in dogs that had distemper as a puppy.  The teeth are likely to decay and should be removed by a veterinarian if this happens.  Canine distemper cannot be treated and damage is irreversible.

Being aware of these eight dog mouth problems will assist you in providing your dog with optimal dental health.  It will be easier for you to tell when there is a problem so you can get veterinary help right away.

 German Shepherd Dog Flea, Worm, Parasite and Tick Medicine

Dog Fleas

Fleas are wingless insects, 1/16 to 1/8-inch (1.5 to 3.3 mm) long, that are agile, usually dark colored (for example, the reddish-brown of the cat flea), with tube-like mouth parts adapted to feeding on the blood of their hosts. Their legs are long, the hind pair well adapted for jumping; a flea can jump vertically up to 7 in (18 cm) and horizontally up to 13 in (33 cm), making the flea one of the best jumpers of all known animals (relative to body size).

Once the flea reaches adulthood, its primary goal is to find blood and then to reproduce Its total life span can be as long as one and one-half years in ideal conditions. Female fleas can lay 5000 or more eggs over their life, allowing for phenomenal growth rates. Average 30–90 days.

The bites often appear in clusters or lines of two bites, and can remain itchy and inflamed for up to several weeks afterwards. Fleas can also lead to hair loss as a result of frequent scratching and biting by the animal, and can cause anemia in extreme cases.

Dog Ticks

Ticks are invertebrate animals in the phylum Arthropoda, and are related to spiders. Ticks are in the subclass Acari which consists of many orders of mites and one tick order, the Ixodida. Some mites are parasitic, but all ticks are parasitic feeders on blood.

Ehrlichiosis also known as canine rickettsiosis, canine hemorrhagic fever, canine typhus, tracker dog disease, and tropical canine pancytopenia is a tick-borne disease of dogs usually caused by the organism Ehrlichia canis. Ehrlichia canis is the pathogen of animals. Humans can become infected by E. canis and other species after tick exposure. German Shepherd Dogs are thought to be susceptible to a particularly severe form of the disease, other breeds generally have milder clinical signs.

Dog Worms

Be aware of risk factors for specific types of worms. Because worms can look very similar, one of the best ways to identify the type of parasite that is plaguing your dog is to understand the environmental or situational factors that most lead to each type of worms.

    Roundworms are often passed to puppies from a roundworm-infested mother because the eggs and larvae cross the placenta to infect the puppy in the womb, and eggs are also excreted in the mother's milk. Puppies should be wormed as a matter of routine.

    Tapeworms are caused by a dog’s eating vermin already infected with tapeworm, or from fleas that contain tapeworm eggs. Thus, hunting dogs or dogs with a flea infestation are likely to pick up tapeworms.

    Hookworms and Whipworms thrive in damp soil and the dogs most at risk are those kept on grass runs, especially in warm, humid conditions. These infections are more common in kenneled dogs that have access to communal grassy runs.

    Heartworm is spread by insects such as mosquitoes and is therefore endemic in certain areas where insects are more common. High risk areas include the Southeastern and Midwestern United States and along the Atlantic coast.

    Lungworm is becoming more prevalent and is spread via fox feces, slugs, and snails. Contact with any of these is considered a risk factor.

Intestinal parasites

        Hookworms* Signs include diarrhea, vomiting, and weight loss.

        Tapeworms* are also common and in the dog, which is spread by ingesting fleas and lice. There are usually no symptoms.

        Roundworms*. Signs are usually mild, but may include diarrhea, pot-bellied appearance, poor growth, and vomiting.

    Fleas* in dogs cause itching and hair loss. The most common flea in dogs is the cat flea, followed by the dog flea.

    Ticks* are an external parasite of the dog and can spread diseases such as Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever. They can also cause a neurological disorder known as tick paralysis.

    Heartworm disease in dogs is spread by mosquitoes and is spread by the parasite Dirofilaria immitis. Signs include cough, difficulty breathing, and death.

    Mites* Ear mites in dogs are microscopic. Symptoms include itching, inflammation, and black debris in the ear.

        Cheyletiellosis is a mild pruritic skin disease in dogs. Humans can be transiently infected.

        Chiggers*, also known as harvest mites, can cause itching, redness and crusting in dogs.

        Mange in dogs include demodectic mange and sarcoptic mange. Signs include hair loss, redness, and scaling, and is not contagious to humans! Sarcoptic mange. Signs include intense itching and scaling, and is contagious to humans.

    Demodex These mites can cause inflammation and hair loss, they can also lead to secondary bacterial infections such as fever, lethargy, and enlarged lymph nodes.

    Sarcoptes scabiei is a mite that burrows into humans and dogs alike and causes scabies. There is only one symptom, itchy and red skin.

    Echinococcus granulosus is an infectious disease infecting dogs and sheep.

    Gnathostoma is a disease from mammal feces and undercooked seafood.
