Posted on January 31, 2013 under Dr. Marc is a veterinarian guest blogger for Pets Best Insurance, aб б agency for dogs and cats. First letБs start with clarifying what shivering (or trembling) is versus what a seizure is. A seizure is when the dog suddenly loses all body control, paddling their legs, jerking or convulsing. It can last for a number of minutes. To learn more, visit Dr. FionaБs blog post on. Shivering is when a dog can make eye contact with you and respond to you, but its body is shaking. Shivering can vary from minimally, to a lot, but the dog still has control of its body. 6 Reasons Your Dog May Shiver 1) The most common reason a dog shivers is due to being cold. A normal dogБs temperature may be as high as 102. 5 F. Since a dogБs body is warmer than a persons, just
AMERICA is one of only a few countries in the Western world that still puts criminals to death. Even there, executions are on the wane: just 20 were carried out in 2016, down from a peak of 98 in 1999. Popular support is declining, too. Just 60% of Americans approve of the death penalty for murder, down from 80% in the 1990s. Only eight states have carried out an execution since 2015, and around two-thirds either have abolished capital punishment or have a moratorium on its use. But it has not disappeared altogether: during an eight-day stretch in April, Arkansas executed four people, so as not to waste its expiring supply of a lethal-injection drug. And last month in Alabama, a man who spent 35 years on death rowБand eluded seven execution datesБwas finally put to death. Why does America
Does your dog shake when sleeping? Does it worry you? There can be several reasons for this shaking but they re usually not indicative of something seriously wrong with your dog just because it shakes when asleep. When a dog shakes while itвs sleeping it can be alarming because you canвt be sure whatвs causing the shaking and whether itвs a natural occurrence, or if the dog may be in pain. When your dog is deep in REM sleep you may notice it shaking, crying, kicking, or moving its legs like itвs running. Rapid eye movement (REM) is the sleep stage in which dreams happen. During REM a dogвs mind is fully active and aware, even though its body is in a completely calm state. The dogвs mind will replay images from events that happened that day or even past events, and its body will react to
Do cats snore? And if cats do snore, is cat snoring something to worry about? The short answer is thatбsome cats snore. For many, nothing is wrong. However,бsome cat snoring can be a sign of trouble. Why does cat snoring happen? Snoring occurs when the passages in the upper airways Б the nose, back of the mouth (the so-called pharynx), or throat Б vibrate audibly during breathing. Vibrations and the resulting snoring are most likely to occur when the tissues of the upper airways are relaxed during sleep. Persians and other бare theбusual culprits of cat snoring in the feline world. As humans have bred them to have shorter noses, the tissues in the upper airways have become unnaturally tortuous. When air moves through the convoluted tissues, vibration and snoring are common. In extreme

Not all engine oil leaks are the same. Some are visible all the time, with puddles of oil visible wherever you park. Others appear when youвre parked on an incline. Others may not show up when your engine is cold and only appear while youвre driving. This last type of engine oil leak can be hard to detect, but it can create big problems. The only way to see if your engine is leaking oil while youвre driving is to keep a close eye on your engine oil level. While most modern vehicles include an oil level and life monitor, older-model cars need to be checked using the dipstick. We suggest checking it on a regular basis. Make a habit of checking your oil level several times per month, or before you head out on a major drive. If you detect your oil level dropping, start checking the level more

You might be surprised to find out that dogs kick grass for a number of reasons. It may all seem pretty baffling to us humans, but to your dog it makes perfect sense no matter how weird it appears. It is also true that your dog will probably do it at the most inconvenient moment. Yes, you know the moment. The one when you're doubled over trying to do your best with the poop bag, his back legs start twitching and he'll go off on a grass trimming session which means you have to move pretty speedily to avoid the flying debris. This may seem a slightly obscure question, but have you ever sniffed your pup's paws and thought they were a bit smelly? Surprisingly enough, they're not stinky because they are dirty.

Pay attention to changes in your dog s breath. For example, a foul odor that crops up out of the blue could mean she has an infection. The odor of a bad tooth infection is very unpleasant, says Dr. Laurie Coger, a holistic veterinarian and dog trainer. Bad breath may also indicate kidney disease or diabetes.
