A loose dog encounters
walking your dog on the sidewalk or street and a loose dog attacked your dog,
the person that is responsible is the owner that attacked your dog. We also
have a leash law in Pinellas County Florida. Yell for help, and maybe the owner
or neighbor will arrive and take control of the loose dog.Give your dog only a
couple of feet of leash. The more leash he has, the more momentum he can
buildup. Most dogs do not attack a human without provocation.
Don't run, dogs think that chasing is a game.

Causes no permanent damage
Is a fun and exciting sport for you and your canine companion! Your pet can learn to leap over jumps, run through tunnels, through weave poles and lots more! Agility is a good excise for any dogs, specially for dogs that have high energy. Courses are complicated enough that a dog could not complete them correctly without human direction. Dogs run off-leash with no food or toys as incentives.

Rabbits are prey animals and they are very good at hiding illnesses.
A rabbit with small or runny feces probably needs to see the vet. Be sure
you groom your rabbit especially when it sheds a lot. Fresh hay will
keep the GI track lining healthy. If your rabbit is hiding hunched over in
a corner, this is not normal behavior. If there is loss of appetite for more than
one day, call the vet. If it is more than eight hours, take the rabbit to emergency.
If the rabbit stops eating, it's digestion will stop, and the intestines will fill
with gas--the rabbit will die in short order.
If your rabbit head is tilted, it may be an inner ear infection. Be very careful
--it is often mistaken for a stroke. Get a second opinion if the vet says you
should euthanize your rabbit. If your rabbit displays these symptoms:
chronic sneezing, runny nose, labored breathing and runny eyes--those
are signs of allergies. Look out for loud tooth grinding--a sign of pain.
Rabbits are susceptible to cold. Rabbits can't tolerate hot temperatures,
Rabbits that live outside are sometimes subject to heat stroke.
Not all veterinarians have the specialized training that is required to treat rabbits.
You can find a veterinarian in your area that does have special expertise in rabbit
medicine by checking the House Rabbit Society's listing of recommended veterinarians.
