🖤 thankful thursday ❤️
we recently helped k9 nero, a mobile fire-rescue department urban search & rescue type ii live find dog. he was a victim of a hit-and-run and still needs our help.

nero's handler gave witness as black ford f-150 struck nero, he rolled underneath the vehicle where the rear axles rolled over his body. the worst part is that the driver then yelled an expletive, and spun off, almost colliding with another victim in the oncoming lane. unfortunately, nero's handler was far too concerned about the state of k9 nero to attempt to record a license plate number.
nero's handler has since focused all of his efforts towards restoring nero’s health. he still needs surgery to have his tail amputated and is currently incontinent, though it isn’t clear yet if that will remain permanent. an infection has set in on the deep lacerations on his rear legs, and fluid regularly swells and recedes in his back paws. some positive news is that internal bleeding has since stopped and his lab results have been promising.
spike's k9 fund was able to help pay for the initial costs of the er visit with tests and treatments. however, nero still needs his tail amputated and with your help, we can make a difference.
anything helps, please consider donating to the combat dog diesel campaign to help fund nero's surgery.

Dinner for the heathen trio...
purina proplan sport 30/20, ground venison, farm fresh egg, and fish oil.
i usually don’t feed a lot of raw stuff but i do occasionally add it to their meals and when we finally settle into a house we’ll be adding it more regularly.
Good morning all
hope you are all well :) the one thing i want to have as a value for tails 4 trails natural pet care products & services is transparency.
i want to provide a service where my customers can feel at ease knowing who we are, what goes in to our products and what we are doing to improve our services.
as such here is a post about something big going on behind the scenes.
i am currently studying to become a holistic therapist and have so far passed 5 of my modules with 100%. so what modules have i done so far and what does this mean?
module 1: what is holistic health? this module covered the definitions of holistic health, how therapists and veterinarians could get the best for their clients if they worked together and how a holistic and scientific approach fits in to canine health.
module 2: nutrition and health. this covers nutrition, diet, how what our canines eat affects their bodies, the positives and negatives of a variety of diets and allergies and intollerances.
module 3: physical health: this section covers physical fitness & longer, vaccinations, stress related impacts on physical health, social learning and the growing epidemic of canine stress.
module 4: mental health. this module really interested me as it goes into great detail about how mental health affects canines, ways in which it should be addressed and how mental health can impact a canines physical health.
module 5: herbs and flowers: i loved this module so much as it goes into detail about bach flower remedies, essential oils and natural ways to treat emotional problems and physical ailments.
i will continue to update on the progress of this and hope to utilise my learning in this business.
have a great day everyone.
Com a chegada do outono o clima vai ficando mais frio, e muitas pessoas tendem a levar seus cães para passear com menor frequência. mas saiba que é importante que o seu cachorro mantenha o mesmo nível de atividade que tinha no verão. deixe seu animalzinho aproveitar o clima mais brando, cheirar as folhas que caem e, principalmente, manter os níveis de exercício e lazer, que são importantes para ele. desta forma serão animais mais ativos e exercitarão suas articulações, evitando assim possíveis dores e desconfortos articulares no futuro. 🍁🍂🍃 #aproveiteooutono#dicaspet#passeiopet#fitnessdog#dogslife#dognamala#caninehealth#saudeanimal#veterinariaintegrativa
Epilepsy and seizure disorders can affect dogs just like they can in us humans. ever since he was young, chewie has had about 3-5 seizures a year (we count our blessings that they are so infrequent compared to other dogs) and yesterday was one of them. after the episode has passed, he is extremely lethargic and doesn't want to interact with anyone for anywhere from 2 to 24 hours. we can always tell that the postdrome has passed when he seeks us out for petting and affection again. i love this big baby and it hurts so much to see him seize, but is such a relief when he fully recovers to his normal self. #seizure#epilepsy#bouvierdesflandres#bouvier#caninehealth#cutedog
