Signs of Ear Infection in Dogs

Ear infections are surprisingly common among dogs, especially flopp-eared breeds and those with allergy problems.

Here are some simple indications that your dog might have an ear infection: shaking the head, red or painful ears, pawing at ears, foul odor from the head or ears, stinky ear discharge or dark colored ear wax.  Be sure to compare the left side to the right side. If you suspect an ear infection, in most cases your pet will need to see your veterinarian for proper treatment.

About Me: I was adopted by my roommate, Celcius. He convinced the humans that work for him that I was a necessary addition to the work place. Ever since I keep watch over the clinic making sure all the humans stay on task. If I am not sleeping or being chased by Celcius, I enjoy basking in the sun by the front windows watching the world go by. It is a luxury I take very seriously, but there is always time for a good back scratch by the humans that come through the door with their animal owners.  I do enjoy greeting our clients and even help them sign in at the front desk. At bed time, I do enjoy playing a good game of hide-and-seek. It gives me such a thrill to hear them call me, searching high and low all over the clinic. Although, they do always end up finding me, usually because of all my bling I wear on my collar makes such a racket when I move. I look forward to meeting any new cats, dogs, or the exotic animals and their human affiliates that come through our doors.

About Me: I am what you would call a "reformed runaway". The humans at PRAH took me in when I was about a year old and I have since lived in the lap of luxury. I get a nice comfy bed to sleep in with my roommate, Fahrenheit, two square meals a day (although for some reason, they don't believe in second helpings, humph), plenty of places to sneak off to and take a nap, and lots of people to love me and pet me whenever my heart desires. My favorite place to sleep is under the computers in the lab in a comfy box lined with papers for my comfort. This allows me to paw and let my humans know they are late for their petting appointment without ever leaving my bed. . If I'm not sleeping, eating, or cat napping, I do love to greet the other animals that come through the doors with their human assistants.  So please, come by and visit me sometime, just make sure to bring a treat for me or a good head scratching.

What's the best Diet for a Companion Bird

Companion birds should be fed a high quality formulated pelleted diet.  We                  recommend Harrison’s Bird Diet (HBD), but there are other good brands as well. While no diet is perfect for all birds under all circumstances, we believe that HBD comes the closest to being perfect for most birds.  

The goal is to have the bird consume ~80% pellets and ~20% fruits, veggies, and table food.  

Birds generally love seeds, but seeds and seed based diets are totally inappropriate for companion birds. Seeds are missing some 21 essential nutrients.  In our experience, getting a pet bird off of seeds and onto a pelleted diet will often double the bird’s lifespan.
