How to Assess your Pet’s Health
I received an email about a topic on the show, The Doctors that will air tomorrow and wanted to give my readers a heads up about this segment. If you cannot watch or record the program you can access it via http://tinyurl.com/drsvideo
A Veterinarian demonstrates on Dr. Travis Stork’s very relaxed dog how to check a dog’s pulse, how to check for lumps and bumps and shows the viewer a few other easy to do at home exams on your pet. I viewed the segment and thought the information was easy to understand and something every pet owner can do at home.

I was contacted to share this with my readers.
Summer vacation season is quickly approaching, which can mean exciting trips to warmer climates, new adventures, foods…and a higher risk of bringing home some unexpected souvenirs—bed bugs! Pest control for these hard-to-get-rid-of insects has more than doubled since 2000, since they can go months without a meal (human blood!), and they are hard to detect.
The hosts of the Emmy Award-winning syndicated daytime talk show THE DOCTORS can help your readers find relief from bed bugs with the assistance of a few canine species. On Thursday, April 24, one pest control company specializing in bed bugs shows THE DOCTORS how dogs – especially dachshunds and beagles – can help seek out bed bugs. With more than 225 million scent receptors, these dogs can smell all stages of infestation.
See below for a clip demonstrating this feat by one adorable pup.
Tips: “don’t let the bed bugs bite!”·
Detect them – Bed bugs love small cracks and crevices. Check even the screw holes in your bed frame to see if you have a bed bug problem.· Prevent them – Get rid of all cardboard boxes in the house and switch to plastic for storage.·
Remove them – Make sure to vacuum on a regular basis, as bed bugs can often be found in warm spaces like grooves in a carpet or rug.·
Overheat – If you detect bed bugs on sheets or clothing, throw the fabric in the dryer first, then wash the items and dry them again.
