Australian Shepherd Photo of the Week

Australian Shepherd Dog Photo of the Day

Pam Lane

Here is my buddy Turbo, he is two years old. At one year Turbo was diagnosed with EPI an insufficiency of the pancreas that causes the inability to digest food. Poor Turbo had lost a lot of weight, was extremely lethargic and his coat was dull and lifeless. Luckily once diagnosed EPI can be treated (however not cured), by adding enzymes to every meal. As you can see he has made a wonderful recovery for which we are eternally grateful. Turbo is one of our three Aussie family, two red tris and our newest edition a ten week old black tri. As they say Aussies are like potato chips, you can't have just one!

Fleas, Worms and Other Parasites

Parasites are a common health concern that affect all dogs. It's highly likely that you'll have to deal with some of these, such as fleas, at least once or twice throughout your dog's lifetime – and you'll definitely have to know how to prevent or deal with worm infestations. Let's go over the different types of parasites that affect dogs and how to prevent and treat them.


Although they aren't usually dangerous in themselves, they can be particularly annoying and they're rather common. There are numerous way to treat a flea infestation. These include shampoos or baths, flea collars, powders, sprays and pills. No product is 100% guaranteed to kill fleas. The trouble with fleas and most other parasites is making sure the treating you use attacks the entire parasite life cycle. In other words, you don't just have to kill off the living fleas – you also have to kill their larvae (eggs).

Bear in mind, you should never exceed the recommend dosage when it comes to flea medications or shampoos. Adding more will not kill the fleas faster, and it can potentially harm your pet. Always follow the instructions on the packet and listen to the advice of your vet.

Dog Quote of the Week

"My dog is vicious to the uninvited guest, lavishly affectionate to the invited one, and so freakishly acute that he has mastered the English language."
