5 Symptoms Of Dog Pain That Every Pet Owner Should Watch Out For

5 Symptoms Of Dog Pain That Every Pet Owner Should Watch Out For
By Mary L. James

Every pet owner finds it dreadful whenever their pooch is sick or in pain. While there are plenty of obvious signs that show this, keep in mind that dogs don't speak our language and can't always tell us when they're not feeling well. Dogs mainly communicate to humans through actions so it's important to be observant about their behaviors especially if you suspect that they are sick.

Here are 5 symptoms of dog pain that every pet owner should watch out for:

Heavy Panting

Panting is normal behavior for canines. Heavy panting shouldn't be a surprise as well, especially during hot days. But if your pet pants heavily out of nowhere, this may indicate that he's stressed or in pain.

Lack of Appetite

Inappetence is usually the first obvious symptom when a dog is in pain or feeling sick. Just like us, we lose appetite when we're not feeling well. Lack of appetite in canines can be caused by many reasons but if it persists, it's better to consult your veterinarian to find out the cause.

Excessive Grooming

While it's natural for dogs to groom themselves by licking, it's not normal for it to become an obsessive behavior. If you notice your pooch licking a particular area of his body for extended periods, it could indicate that he is in pain. Canines will often groom parts of their body where the pain is coming from in the hopes to soothe or care for the wound.

Shyness or Aggression

A dog that's in pain will usually hide away in a corner and avoid attention because he doesn't have the energy to play or socialize. On the other hand, other dogs who are experiencing pain have the tendency to become aggressive especially when touched. Don't take it personally if your usual sweet and lively pooch growls or snaps at you when you try to play with him - he just doesn't have any other means to let you know that he is hurting.

General Changes in Behavior

If your dog doesn't greet you excitedly anymore when you arrive, if he doesn't want to play with his favorite toy or if he refuses any physical activities such as his daily walks or simply climbing up the stairs, he is most probably in pain or feeling sick. Bring him to the vet to get checked out especially if the problem persists.

If you notice any of the above mentioned signs or symptoms of dog pain in your pet, it is best to seek medical help to be sure that the problem is resolved immediately.

Your Marketing Funnel

Your Marketing Funnel

By: Alicia Forest

Do you often wonder why it is that some coaches and other solo service providers seem to be well-known and sought after in their niche and while others, many others (you, perhaps?), still struggle to attract all the clients they'd like?

I can give you a simple (really!) solution to that problem. It's called the Marketing Funnel and if you implement it in your business, I promise that you too can enjoy being considered an expert, in addition to selling more of your products and services. And you'll just have more fun!

You know what a funnel looks like, right? It's wide and the top and tapers down to a narrow opening. When your prospects enter your funnel through your ezine or other (usually) freebie offering, they are in the "getting to know you"level of the funnel. Once they get to know you, like you and trust you, they likely will move down to the next level, which will include your for-fee products and services, your least expensive ones first, increasing in value and cost as they continue downwards, until they eventually get to hiring you one-on-one or to your other big ticket item. That's basically how the funnel system of marketing works.

I see a lot of coaches and other solo service professionals offer a freebie at the top of their funnel, and then their one-on-one service packages at the bottom, with nothing in between. I've made this mistake myself. It's important to have offerings at each level of your marketing funnel so people can continue to get to know, like and trust you, as well as get to know, like and trust your products and services.

And when you offer your products and services at different price points, you are lowering the financial and emotional risk for your prospects. You are essentially making it impossible for them not to buy from you!

Implementing this system is easy. Get started by attract prospects into your funnel. Create a freebie offering (an ezine, mini ecourse, ebook, report, guide, checklist, etc.) and put a sign-up form 'above the fold' and prominently on your website. You'll want to add a link to your freebie offering in your email signature as well.

For example, one version of my current email signatures says:
"Are you on the verge of giving up on your business because you don't have enough clients?

Don't turn your back on your vision for entrepreneurial success. Get your FREE 5-day ecourse '5 Keys to Driving an Abundance of Clients to Your Business' by sending a blank email to clientabundance@aweber.com."

This is one highly effective way I attract folks into my funnel.

Once you have prospects in your funnel, find ways to give them more valuable content at increasingly higher prices as they go through the funnel.

For example, the second level of your funnel might offer an ebook for $27 or an ecource for $39. The third level might have a home study course for $147 or a series of teleseminars for $77 each. The fourth level might offer a boot camp for $347, and the fifth level might offer your one-on-one services for $500.

Get the picture? Fabulous - now go to it!

Type 2 Diabetes - Five Simple Dietary Changes You Can Make to Improve Your Blood Sugar

Type 2 Diabetes - Five Simple Dietary Changes You Can Make to Improve Your Blood Sugar
By Beverleigh H Piepers

Making changes to your diet can be hard, and it can be intimidating. You may not know where to start, and all of the recommendations you find online can make things super confusing. The good news is improving your Type 2 diabetes can be done with just a handful of simple yet very effective dietary changes.

Let us take the confusion out of which foods you should and should not enjoy by talking about five simple yet effective dietary changes you can make to improve your blood sugar levels...

1. Eliminate Fruit Juice. Fruit juice often contains lots of added sugar. Pair added sugar with the sugar naturally found in fruit, and you are bound to experience a spike in blood sugar. Avoid fruit juice, and choose water, unsweetened sparkling water, or sweeten the water with freshly squeezed fruit juice.

2. Read Food Labels. Reading food labels can be your best tool when it comes to controlling your blood sugar! Checking food labels for added sugars by looking for anything ending in "ose" can be a great way to eliminate foods containing added sweeteners. Make it a habit to read the back of every label before you purchase a packaged food item. The more you do this, the better you will become at detecting added sugars!

3. Choose Complex Carbs versus Refined Carbs. Choose complex carbs like rolled oats, quinoa, and brown rice over white pasta, white rice, bread, and pastries. Complex carbs will be absorbed more slowly and are less likely to cause a blood sugar spike. Plus, complex carbs like quinoa or brown rice in their whole and natural state will not contain added sugar as bread and pastries will.

4. Avoid High Fructose Corn Syrup. High fructose corn syrup is found in soda, crackers, candy, and even bread! It is one of the leading causes of obesity and can lead to Type 2 diabetes. It is essential to stay away from high fructose corn syrup at all costs. Instead, choose foods containing natural sweeteners such as...

  • fruit,
  • pure maple syrup,
  • raw honey, or
  • stevia.

However, keep in mind foods like dried fruit and honey can cause blood sugar imbalances when consumed in excess and these foods should only be eaten once in a while.

5. Stay Away from Trans and Hydrogenated Fats. Trans and hydrogenated fats are commonly found in fried and processed foods. Fast food items are notorious for being full of these damaging fats that can help cause...

  • obesity,
  • heart disease, and can
  • trigger inflammation.

These fats can also increase your cholesterol level. Stay away from these fats, and choose healthier options such as...

  • extra virgin olive oil,
  • avocados,
  • nuts,
  • chia, and
  • flaxseeds.

Take your health into your own hands and make a difference in your health and your life. Start by making one change a week until you have made all five. In just a short amount of time, you could have better control of your Type 2 diabetes, and living your healthiest life!

Although managing your disease can be very challenging, Type 2 diabetes is not a condition you must just live with. You can make simple changes to your daily routine and lower both your weight and your blood sugar levels. Hang in there, the longer you do it, the easier it gets.

For nearly 25 years Beverleigh Piepers has searched for and found a number of secrets to help you build a healthy body. Go to http://DrugFreeType2Diabetes.com to learn about some of those secrets.

The answer isn't in the endless volumes of available information but in yourself.

Importance of Dog Training And Exercise in Daily Life

Importance of Dog Training And Exercise in Daily Life
By Sharon Jones

Good health and sustainable livelihood are only possible when everything is obtained with moderation, in other words when the overall balance is maintained. In the case of pets, apart from food, shelter and lifestyle accessories they also need physical activity. If an animal's particular tendencies such as chewing, running, exploring, biting, so on and forth aren't fulfilled it will eventually lead to anxiety, obsession, restlessness, and aggression.

Let us take the example of dogs messing the house, chewing shoes, sofa-cushions, tearing curtains and all such household items. It happens because they have chewing tendencies that need to be fulfilled. If the same is continued, the dog might end up harming other animals or in-fact biting humans as well. Hence, it is always important to keep our canine friend occupied with playtime at least for 2-3 hours a day so as to promote better health and mental stability.

Train your dog with the best of Dog toys

Toys come in different types and work in respectively different ways too. There are plush toys that are compatible with dogs and are also resistant towards the strong animal bites. Interactive discount dog toys will help them fulfill their exploring tendencies and will keep them occupied till it develops their level of intelligence. Furthermore, there are fetching toys and bones that keep the animal satisfied as well as active. Such accessories definitely create a better lifestyle for the

animal and in-fact provides a companion when the owner isn't there or when it is left alone in the house.

What are the benefits of training our dogs?

Playtime might seem like only fun and entertainment on the surface but when examined in-depth we actually get to know that such activities play a vital role in shaping the animal's lifestyle and simultaneously improve its conditions too. For instance, toys that store food treats get the animal engaged with a particular process that rewards it with snacks.

It will eventually develop the habit of interacting with the particular accessory so as to obtain its eventual reward. Having them fetch things connects them with the owner and it will ultimately improve the relations as well. Non-toxic chew toys will fulfill the natural chewing tendencies and this will prevent the loss of household items such as curtains, cushions and similar items.

With such accessories owners will efficiently be able to train their dogs and simultaneously get rid of improper tendencies like aggressiveness, frustration, and depression. However, all sorts of toys are not suitable, so it is always appropriate to analyze items, make sure they aren't toxic and are convenient in size as well. With all the fundamentals in place, dogs will certainly live the lives of luxury and bliss.

Let us conclude?

Animals need love and care, including physical activities so as to live an undisturbed life. Playtime with the owner ultimately develops the dog's sense of obedience. Moreover, playing or chewing with toys on their own will provide them company even when the owner is not present at the home. In this way, pets won't get left out and the living conditions will be improved to perfection.

Take proper control of your company web site

Take proper control of your company web site

By: John Philip

I recently carried out a web-site review for a solid and successful company. It had followed most of the 'rules' for getting high traffic, but had somehow missed the mark. I suspect that a large number of visitors found the site unconvincing, uninspiring and unmemorable. The site certainly did little to enhance the company's otherwise very high reputation. I quickly spotted the problem, but it took me a while to figure out the underlying cause.

The problem itself was really very simple. Each page was fine on its own, but the site as a whole was not coherent. Some pages had long paragraphs while others were written in bullet points. Sentences varied hugely in length and complexity. Key staff were profiled by some departments, but not by others. Even key branding language varied, including, believe it or not, the name of the company!

The root of the problem was somewhere in the overall co-ordination of the site. The obvious conclusion was that whoever was in charge was not sufficiently skilled as an editor. But that was not enough. Why were senior executives not dealing with it?

The company's paper publications were excellent, with attention to detail and a common style across the range from annual reports and press releases to marketing materials and recruitment leaflets. Each department's copy passed through the hands of a small editorial team who corrected and improved the language and transformed it into a coherent company style. Beyond this, a director ensured consistency and co-ordinated the output of different departments in accordance with the board's strategic demands.

The web site was a totally different ball game.

The company leaders regarded the web site as a techie issue. The different departments were giving well-written copy, but there was no-one with proper editing experience to pull it together. Executives were satisfied with the web pages that were relevant to their own departmental responsibilities and were happy to leave the site management in the hands of someone who understood the technical issues involved. This was the equivalent of leaving paper publications in the hands of printers and graphic designers.

The lessons are clear. First, ensure proper executive oversight of your website. If it isn't already, your site will soon be the most frequently viewed representation of your company. Second, make full use of professional editors for your site's text. It depends upon your company's circumstances whether you are better off doing this in house or outsourcing.

Barbell Floor Press Challenge Aerobic Workout

by

Joseph

Once again I opted to do cardiovascular exercise rather than not workout at all. Stair climbing is by no means a substitute for heavy weight training but it is better than sitting down all day long. My workload is keeping me busy to the point I have not been able to get to the gym to exercise, and when I do get free time, it's not feasible to head over to the gym.

When I am able to get back to the gym, I will be doing heavy weight lifting; I miss it and I need to be doing it. 

I'll keep you posted.

 

But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. "Do not fear what they fear ; do not be frightened." 1 Peter 3:14

Type 2 Diabetes - Having Had Gestational Diabetes Raises Risk for Certain Cancers

Type 2 Diabetes - Having Had Gestational Diabetes Raises Risk for Certain Cancers
By Beverleigh H Piepers

Scientists at Chang Gung Memorial Hospital and Chang Gung University in Taiwan found a higher-than-average risk of particular cancers in women with a history of Gestational diabetes or pregnancy-related diabetes. Their study was published in February of 2019 in the British Medical Journal.

A total of 47,373 women with Gestational diabetes and 943,199 women with healthy pregnancies were admitted to the study and followed for three years. Women with a history of Gestational diabetes had more than twice the risk of developing cancer as women without such a history. They were...

  • more than twice as likely to develop kidney cancer,
  • almost 74 percent more likely to develop cancer of the nose or throat,
  • over 37 percent more likely to be diagnosed with lung cancer,
  • almost 39 percent more likely to develop thyroid gland cancer, and
  • over 23 percent more likely to develop breast cancer.

The researchers concluded women who had a history of Gestational diabetes should be screened for the cancers listed above.

Prevention of Gestational diabetes should begin before women conceive. Gestational diabetes starts during pregnancy, especially in women over age 25. Being overweight is a risk factor, therefore, women planning to conceive need to normalize their weight; and during pregnancy, mothers need to gain only the recommended amount of weight. Getting enough physical activity and rest is important too.

Signs and symptoms of kidney cancer are...

  • blood in the urine,
  • one-sided low back pain,
  • lump in the lower back or side,
  • tiredness,
  • loss of appetite,
  • losing weight without trying, and/or a
  • fever without a known cause that does not go away.

Signs and symptoms of nose cancer include...

  • nasal mucus,
  • pain around the eyes,
  • a blocked side of your nose,
  • postnasal drip,
  • frequent nosebleeds,
  • pus from the nose,
  • a poor or an absent sense of smell, and/or
  • numbness or pain in the face

Throat cancer's signs and symptoms include...

  • a cough that does not go away,
  • hoarseness or speaking indistinctly,
  • swallowing with difficulty,
  • ear pain
  • sore throat, and/or
  • unexplained weight loss

The list of signs and symptoms of lung cancer include...

  • a persistent cough,
  • bloody or rust-colored sputum,
  • chest pain that gets worse with breathing,
  • hoarseness,
  • shortness of breath,
  • tiredness,
  • loss of appetite, and/or
  • weight loss without trying.

Signs and symptoms of thyroid gland cancer are...

  • a lump in the neck may grow quickly,
  • ain in front of the neck may reach up to the ears,
  • hoarseness or other changes in the voice,
  • difficulty swallowing, and/or
  • breathing problems.

Although managing your disease can be very challenging, Type 2 diabetes is not a condition you must just live with. You can make simple changes to your daily routine and lower both your weight and your blood sugar levels. Hang in there, the longer you do it, the easier it gets.

How to Unclog Garbage Disposal

How to Unclog Garbage Disposal
By Chris M. Malcolm

Some of the reasons why a garbage disposal gets clogged include food or debris thrown into it which stops and prevents the fly wheel from moving and doing its job. The fly wheel is the mechanism that spins and grinds the food inside the disposal. Here are some tips on how to unclog garbage disposal.

1) Before anything else you have to make sure you have all the materials and equipment needed to do the job. You need a hex-head wrench, a flashlight and a broom handle or a wooden spoon.

2) You need to turn off the power of the disposal before you start working on it. This is for both ease and safety purposes.

3) Often the problem lies in the blades of the garbage disposal being being blocked or something. So using a flashlight, take a good look at the it through the sink drain to see if there is an object or objects blocking the blades. If indeed there is such an object there, use a pair of pliers, a tong or any appropriate tool to get hold of the object and then remove it to unclog garbage disposal.

4) A hex-head wrench normally comes with a garbage disposal. However, in cases where you can't seem to find it, a hex-head wrench that fits into the hole at the bottom will suffice. Now, you need to insert the hex-head wrench into the hole and turn it in a back
and forth manner. Keep doing this in order to manually get the flywheel moving and turning so it may free itself from any obstructions.

5) Now, grab a wooden broom handle or a wooden spoon or fork handle and insert it to the disposal again through the drain sink. Use it to turn the flywheel manually until you think and feel it can move as freely as possible.

6) Get the broom or spoon handle off the disposal then turn the power on to test it out if your efforts worked to solve the problem.

One way of determining whether a garbage disposal is clogged or not is to turn its power on and off. If it is clogged, you can easily hear a humming sound but the it's not working and the blades are not turning. If you can not hear a humming sound even if the power is turned on, then the problem is more than just clogging.

Always remember also that it normally have a reset button. It can be found at the bottom of the disposal and it's usually a red button. Always try resetting your garbage disposals first before doing any other repairs or unclogging procedures.

And never place your bare hands inside any garbage disposal. The blades in there are sharp and even if the power is turned off and the blades are immobile, they still can easily cut through your hands.

Always keep these tips on how to unclog garbage disposal to keep yourself safe and to get the job done as efficiently and quickly as possible.
