Working With Animals And Maintaining Hygiene

By: Neilparnham
Parasitic shampoo is used on animals with fleas, ticks and lice and can be purchased from the vets or pet shops, the alternative shampoo is medicated shampoo and this is for specific skin conditions, and you can easily get it from a vet whom has prescribed it.

Medicated shampoo needs to be left in the fur for a period of time then washed out, where as parasitic shampoo needs massaging deeply into the animals fur and then rinsed out and always insure you read the instructions on the container.

The Water Temperature for bathing a dog should be of a medium heat. You should test the water temperature by putting your hand within the water. If the water is too hot or too cold its wrong for the dog.

Once you have cleaned the dog you will need to dry them there are three methods that can be used, blast drying, you use a blast dryer to get off excess water, making sure you dont blast dry down the ears.

Cage drying, you place the animal in a cage on a towel and place a standing dryer over it.

And also stand drying in which you place the animal on a table with a towel underneath it, and you use either a stand dryer or a hand held dyer to dry the dog.

Dogs Circulatory Systems

Why the heart rate increases during exercise?

From the graph it shows that the heart rate of the dog increases during exercise, while the dog is exercising the heart pumps faster getting blood to the moving joints, making the dog breath faster to get the needed oxygen around the body. The dog also gets adrenalin which also makes the heart work harder and making the dog excitable.

Why does it take a while to return to normal?

It takes a while for the heart rate to return to normal after exercising because the dog still had adrenalin around the body and it takes awhile for the heart to stop pumping faster and for the breathing to go back to normal this is because the adrenalin needs to wear-down in the system.

The dogs circulatory and respiratory system during exercise and during rest.

In the dogs body the circulatory and respiratory system work hard making sure that what the dog needs is getting around the body, for the respiratory system the dog is breathing much harder and faster then normal taking in more oxygen, making the lungs work quicker and harder. For the circulatory system, as the dog runs around it makes the heart work faster pumping oxygenated blood around the body, to the areas that need it.

After exercise bother systems slow down slowly, the heavy breathing gets softer, less oxygen is taken in and the fast heart rate slows down, less blood is pumped around making it go back to normal.
