Ear mites are tiny critters that thrive in warm, moist environments like the ears of your dog. Adult ear mites number in the hundreds and can cause a host of problems for your four-legged friend, including poor hair coat, itching, crusting external ear tissue (otitis media), and even deafness.
Fortunately there is a very easy way to get rid of these pesky critters – just put your dog’s ears under a running faucet for about 30 seconds! This will clean out all the moisture and feces which ear mites love and will kill any currently active/living mites. If you notice any changes such as bad itching or discharge from the ears afterward it might be an indication that there are already plenty of ear mites present so it’s best to take preventive action by doing this before they become a problem.
Let’s take a closer look…
Do you see dog mites with your human eye? Unfortunately, the human eye is not able to see these small creatures well. Dog mites are about the size of a poppy seed and their color ranges from light brown to dark red. They have six legs and they can crawl quickly on a surface. Dog mites feed on dog skin, so they can be signs of skin problems in your pet. If you spot them, it is important to take your pet to the veterinarian for an inspection to determine if there are any underlying health issues that need treatment.
Guinea pigs are curious and engaging animals that enjoy a variety of activities. They love to explore their environment, play with toys, and socialize with others. Some of the things Guinea pigs enjoy the most include:
Looking around – Guinea pigs are active explorers who love to examine everything around them. This includes everything from objects in their surroundings to the inner workings of plants.
Playtime – Guinea pigs love to have fun and spend time interacting with their family and friends by playing games or running around energetically. In addition, they also enjoy exploring new areas, which can be as simple as hopping up on a person’s finger or climbing on top of a cage.
Athletic activities – Guineas adore engaging in physical activity regardless of whether it’s running around like crazy or playing fetch with a toy. This is one area where they definitely outmatch cats who often get left behind in these adventures!
If your female ferret is in heat, she will act differently than usual. She may be more active and aroused, displaying an aggressive behavior towards other animals or people. Her vaginal discharge will intensify and turn sour smelling. Additionally, her nipples may become erect and she may vocalize frequently.
