Canine Health Tips of the Week
WASH YOUR HANDS AFTER PETTING YOUR DOG - FOR YOUR HEALTH

We never mean to be alarmist in WDW News, but we do want to bring news of dog health – and dog owner health – to our readers’ attention.   Now, for the first time, research has shown that people can pick up Toxocara canis, a nematode worm that grows in dogs’ intestines, from the eggs that may be on a dog’s fur.

In the U.S. each year, some 10,000 individuals, many of them kids, get infested with this parasite.  And it can have serious consequences including blindness.  One of the most important strategies to avoid it is to always wash your hand thoroughly after petting or grooming a dog.  Read more online, below.

HEARTWORM DIAGNOSED IN ALL 50 US STATES, MORE

Now that heartworm has been diagnosed in all 50 U.S. states and elsewhere in North America, veterinarians are urging dog owners to learn more about this mosquito-borne parasite and the recommended methods of prevention.  This helpful dog page, below, gives full details on heartworms, preventive medications, monitoring and treatment throughout a dog's life.  April and May are the times for checking a dog's heartworm status based on last year's possible exposure, veterinarians say.

DOG TALE No. 1

Loves to Listen
BUSTER VISITS SCHOOL FOR LESSONS
-----
Buster is part Labrador Retriever but, rather than hunting in the woods and fields, he goes to work at an elementary school in Pennsylvania.  There he is part of a teacher's "pet project" -- having kids read to canine visitors.

Kids love it, and it does seem to stimulate their interest in reading when they can tell a story outloud to a visitor like Buster rather than to their teacher.  Click to find out why!

DOG TALE No. 2
A Mutt Pup Named Dragon
CHEERS MARINES STATIONED NEAR IRAQ

In recent days, a part-German Shepherd pup named Dragon has been getting as many packages from “back home” as the Marines who adopted him when he wandered in to the base for the Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 268 – somewhere near Iraq.   Check out his special story and what he means to the forces overseas.
