Canine Distemper


For many years canine distemper was one of the most deadly viral diseases affecting dogs. Since the introduction of a vaccine to combat the disease, the incidence of distemper infections has dropped considerably.

Good vaccination practices in the U.S. have played a major role in the reduction of distemper cases in this country, but unfortunately, canine distemper is still a huge problem in other parts of the world.

The canine distemper virus is an RNA virus. A variation of the canine distemper virus causes measles in humans.

Canine distemper can affect dogs of any age but is more likely to affect younger puppies rather than older dogs. This may be due to an acquired immunity resulting from a canine distemper vaccination, or to exposure to the virus, resulting in the dog developing an immunity to the virus.

The wide range of clinical signs accompanying an infection of distemper often makes it very difficult to diagnose a young dog with distemper. In some dogs, a temporary fever and a lack of appetite, sudden lethargy or mild depression, are often the only signs of the onset of distemper. Some dogs infected with the distemper virus may have discharges from the nose and eyes in addition to coughing, a fever, lack of an appetite, vomiting and diarrhea. It is not uncommon for an infected dog to display some but not all of the symptoms associated with canine distemper.

Distemper infections often go undiagnosed when an owner believes the dog just has a cold or some other non-life threatening illness. The unfortunate consequence of misdiagnosing a dog’s distemper symptoms could result in the death of the dog.

Some dogs are able to survive the initial viral infection but later develop neurologic signs in one to two weeks after becoming infected. These signs include seizures, sudden and strange changes in behavior, and constantly walking in circles. Many dogs who develop neurologic signs develop rhythmic motions or twitches. Sometimes an affected dog will act as if it’s chewing on something due to continuous contractions of the head muscles. If a dog is able to survive the initial viral infection and does not display any neurologic damage, it does not mean the dog is completely in the clear. A distemper infection can also lead to retinal damage and discoloration of the dog’s cornea. Sometimes, the dog’s skin, nose and foot pads will become very hard.

There is a period of time that the virus remains dormant after a dog is infected. The clinical signs of distemper will begin to show approximately 10 to 14 days after infection. If a puppy is vaccinated against distemper but has already been infected with the virus, the vaccination will not be effective in preventing the disease.

Currently there is no specialized treatment that can kill the distemper virus. Prevention of infection is the best way to guard your puppy or dog against canine distemper. Be sure your new puppy is vaccinated at approximately 6 weeks of age. The vaccinations will need to be continued until the puppy reaches 12 to 16 weeks of age. The distemper vaccinations are given in 3 to 4 week intervals. Injection of the vaccine has to be repeated due to interference with the vaccine from antibodies in the mother’s milk being passed on to the puppies. These antibodies prevent the vaccine from being effective in about 75% of all puppies vaccinated at six weeks of age, approximately 25% of puppies vaccinated at nine weeks of age, and only a small number of puppies vaccinated at twelve weeks of age.

The follow-up vaccinations provide protection to almost all puppies who receive the vaccine.

Canine distemper virus is found in all the body secretions from an infected animal. Raccoons and skunks are often carriers of this deadly disease, so it’s a good idea to watch your dog carefully when venturing into areas where these animals are often found. Living in the city does not automatically exclude the possibility of an infected raccoon or skunk because these animals love to raid neighborhood garbage cans when foraging for food.

Kennel Cough in Dogs


Kennel cough in dogs is a fairly easy ailment to diagnose at home. If your dog suddenly develops a ‘hacking’ cough or constantly sounds like it’s choking on something, it could be kennel cough, known to your vet as canine infectious tracheobronchitis.

These coughing sounds can be frightening, leading you to believe something is seriously wrong with your dog; but most of the time kennel cough is not a serious condition and dogs usually recover from it without needing to undergo any treatment.

Dogs develop kennel cough if they inhale bacteria or virus particles into their respiratory tract. A dog’s respiratory tract is lined with a coating of mucus to trap infectious particles. However, there are some conditions that can weaken a dog’s natural protection mechanism and make it susceptible to kennel cough infection, and the result is an inflammation of the larynx (voice box) and trachea (windpipe).

Several conditions that can lead to kennel cough in dogs include exposure to poorly ventilated or overcrowded rooms and holding areas in kennels and animal shelters; overexposure to cold temperatures; and repeated exposure to dust or smoke from cigarettes.

Kennel cough can have multiple causes and is by no means limited specifically to the conditions listed above. One of the most common reasons for a dog to develop a case of kennel cough is a bacteria called Bordetella bronchiseptica. Most dogs that are infected with this bacteria will also become infected with a virus at the same time. Canine adenovirus, canine herpes virus, canine distemper virus, and parainfluenza virus are among these diseases, and they are more serious than kennel cough alone.

If your dog continues to have a persistent, forceful cough, listen carefully to determine if it sounds very different from the cough-like sound made by many dogs which is referred to as a “reverse sneeze.” Reverse sneezes are normal in certain dogs and breeds, and is usually caused by post-nasal drip or a slight irritation in the dog’s throat. If your dog displays other symptoms including sneezing, a runny nose, or eye discharge, you’ll probably want to have your vet check the dog to be sure the symptoms are not indicative of kennel cough or one of the viruses.

Kennel cough in dogs is a very contagious disease and a dog who has come down with it should not be allowed around other healthy dogs.

Most cases of kennel cough will resolve themselves without any kind of treatment, but medications can help speed the dog’s recovery and help minimize symptoms during the infection. Most dogs will recover completely within three weeks, but older dogs or dogs with certain medical conditions can take up to six weeks to fully recover.

A serious case of kennel cough in dogs can lead to pneumonia so it’s wise to follow up with your vet if your dog doesn’t improve within this short period of time. Also, if your dog begins breathing rapidly or acts listless it could be signs of a more serious condition

A very special cemetery

In rural northwest Alabama there is a cemetery set aside for the burial of coon dogs. It probably won’t come as a surprise to learn that this is the only cemetery of its kind in the world. It was established by Key Underwood in 1939 when he chose the popular hunting camp to bury his coon dog Troop. For 77 years, hunters have brought their coon dogs here from across the country and even beyond…

First-Graders Create One-of-a-Kind Book with Help from Dog Ear Publishing


Indianapolis (PRWEB) May 27, 2014

A first-grade class has entered the world of publishing, creating an illustrated children?s book with a lot to say. ?The Unique Link,? the brainchild of Liberty Park Elementary School teacher Sarah Latdrik and her 24 students, was published earlier this year by Dog Ear Publishing, which offered its services for free. In the story, a first-grader named Lexie loses her confidence and tries to blend in. After some mishaps and unlikely allies, Lexie learns its best to be herself.

Dog Ear and Latdrik paired up last year as part of a two-year writing workshop at the school. Latdrik was teaching kindergarten and had students Skype with mentor authors such as Todd Parr (author of ?It?s OK to be Different) to learn how everyone is unique and should be proud. Students also heard about ?change makers? like Martin Luther King Jr. and Helen Keller. Latdrik thought her students would benefit from learning more about the publishing process after working very hard in the writing workshop, and a Dog Ear employee spoke to the class.

That employee was ?was blown away by the students? complex understanding of the writing process,? discussing subjects like dialogue and writing strategies, said Miles Nelson, Dog Ear co-founder. Latdrik said her students ?did a great job? showing what they had learned about books and the writing process, and she expressed an interest in working with the company to produce a book. ?Dog Ear wanted to help the students become real, published authors,? Nelson said.

Earlier this year, that goal became a reality. Latdrik moved up with her kindergartners in the fall, becoming their first-grade teacher, and they began working on the book. The process began with brainstorming characteristics for the characters, visualizing what they might look like and talking about the book?s message. They built a storyboard to combine their ideas on Post-It notes into a story and talked about character development. Eventually the students told oral versions of their story and Latdrik wrote down their words, adding transitions where necessary.

Students took just as much care in creating the book?s illustrations, accomplished with help from art teacher Abby Winebrenner. Background photographs were taken at Liberty Park and Winebrenner?s apartment, inspired by the work of mentor author Mo Willems, who illustrated ?Knuffle Bunny? and ?The Pigeon Needs a Bath.?

The first-graders discussed the main characters, such as skin color and the impact it might have on the story, as well as face shapes, and Winebrenner sketched them. Students voted on the ones they liked and drew in the faces based on the characters? emotions. They also drew self-portraits, which appear on the final pages. The drawings were scanned and digitally added to the bodies for the book.

?What an awesome and enriched collaboration our illustrators were able to experience,? Winebrenner said, adding that she simply helped tighten their ideas and help turn them into specific physical characteristics, such as their hair and the size of their smiles, helping Samantha and Lexie come to life on paper.

The students? dedication to the project shows. ?You can really tell that Mrs. Latdrik?s students worked very hard to put this book together,? Nelson said. ?These young first-graders shared the same passion that our more seasoned authors have for their writing. It was wonderful to see such excitement and the pride these young children had in the book.?

Their teacher is thrilled with the results. ?I hoped for this project to help them see what we have learned as readers and how we can try out these things as writers ourselves,? Latdrik said, adding that she works to teach students about respect, civility and peace. ?This project has given me a new sense of confidence that they are soaking it in. They are growing and changing through our experiences together, and this confirms my greatest hope that they will change the world with their ?big words.? ?

Parents seem equally excited about the book. ?I especially love the creativity and care that was taken to develop the details around this story,? said Rebecca Johnson. ?It is a great book to teach children that who they are is really unique and being unique is wonderful.?

?I felt like I was looking through the eyes of first-graders, feeling how they feel,? said Jennifer Courtney. ?I also loved the cartoon pictures as well as real pictures from the school. The children did an amazing job on the story, and I really felt like they were writing about their own unique experiences.?

Nikki Jackson spoke about the project?s ripple effect. ?I?m very happy my son was able to contribute to writing this book. It expanded his learning opportunities and helped shape the person he is.?

Students? thoughts about ?The Unique Link? ranged from how fun the project was to the experience of working together. ?I liked when we had a family pizza party and brainstormed our title with our families,? said Raven. ?I liked when we were making the funny pictures,? Keith said. ?It was hard to patiently wait for the book to be printed,? said Claire. Syniah liked ?when the books came in the mail and we saw them for the first time.?

Latdrik said she would consider doing another book if future classes have something big to say, and Nelson said it meant a lot to see an educator so dedicated to inspiring her students to do big things. ?We were happy to be part of this project,? he said. ?This was an absolute, heart-warming success, and we?ll attempt to share our experience with other teachers and schools.?

The book, which costs $ 9.95, is available Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, and fine bookstores everywhere.
