Top Concerns for Domestic Animals 1. Viruses - Dr. Buchoff believes you need to wait until 12 weeks of age if you are going to vaccinate. He does vaccinate for Parvo, then Distemper, then Parvo again. 2. Parasites - known to stunt small animals growth 3. Nutritional influences - not enough enzymes in diet, fillers that are not nutritionally useful. 4. Autoimmune failure- one of the causes is overuse of antibiotics 5. Most common - scratching from: allergies, nutritional deficiencies, over bathing 6. Canine influenza 7.Kennel cough may be due to many factors and has many different pathways, not all the same.

We are not all the same … yet we are ONE. The importance of the sense of smell in domestic animals “Olfaction is to animals what writing is to humans – a message that can be transmitted in the absence of the sender. “ -Domestic animal behavior for veterinarians and animal scientists By Katherine A. Houpt
LONGEVITY & PET HEALTH Olfactory sense - This is perhaps the most important sense of domestic animals in terms of communication. Dogs probably have the greatest olfactory ability of all domestic species. They are able to detect many compounds at 1/1,000,000 the concentration humans can detect and for many weeks after the odorant was placed. Odors and pheromones are very important triggers for domestic animal behavior. The bloodhound, for example, has 76 times the surface area of nasal epithelium as humans. Cats have about four times the surface area of nasal epithelium more than human beings. Olfactory receptor cells: Human beings have about 30 million receptors, rabbits have 100 million ORC, and most dogs have one billion ORC; the bloodhound has four billion ORC (Chudler 2007) From: Cancer Detection by Means of Canine Olfaction Kathleen Loftus 8/12/2007 U.
