For several years, actively developing in the world of “animal-assisted therapy” – the science of the treatment of animals. In the United States and Europe were opened special clinics where treatment is carried out fluffy doctor. Animaloterapiya work in nursing homes, children’s hospitals, rehabilitation centers, and even the U.S. army, and in the UK pharmacies sold “medicinal” white cats.
How Pets affect us?

Now is a fierce debate between proponents of natural food and dry food supporters. And those, and others give good examples from their own experience and good examples from the experience of someone else.
For people who have dogs a lot, question to feed dogs dry food or to cook porridge is not necessary. It is physically impossible to cook every day meals for 6-10 dogs, and some owners even more. Dry food is more economical and more convenient. You can feed adult dogs once a day.

It should include meat and meat offal, fish, vegetables, fruits,herbs. Added to the diet of porridge made from groats expensive. Continue reading
An international team of scientists analyzed genetic data of modern dogs based on the assessment of the remains found all over the world, and found that modern breeds genetically have little in common with their ancestors.
Dogs were the first domesticated animals and the researchers say that their findings eventually lead to the understanding of the origin of dogs and the development of early human civilizations.
Despite the fact that many modern breeds have a form similar to the form of dogs depicted in ancient books or the Egyptian pyramids, mixed breeding, which lasted thousands of years, suggests that it is wrong to call any of the modern breeds “ancient”, the researchers said.
The study showed that because of mixed breeding such breeds as the Akita inu, Afghan hound and Chinese Shar-Pei, called “ancient”, not closer to the first domesticated dogs than any other dog breeds.
