Polish Lowland Sheepdog - PON

 

The Polish Lowland Sheepdog (PON) is a robust sheepdog with roots in Tibet. In fact, it is said that the heavy fur which covers the eyes of this sheepdog is a natural adaptation to the glaring sunlight of the region.  Nomadic tribes traveled with the ancestors of Polish Lowland Sheepdogs during their migration to European countries and the breed became established among the local population. Polish Lowland Sheepdogs developed a reputation for hard work, loyalty and strong herding instincts.  The breed's herding instincts have survived for centuries and even today, they still need a job and will attempt to herd their human families in the absence of sheep. Polish Lowland Sheepdog (PON) lovers will appreciate reading the PON Digest online publication to learn more about this beloved breed.

Originally found in http://www.vetmed.wsu.edu/depts-VCPL/.

Some dogs can have adverse reactions to drugs such as ivermectin, loperamide , Imodium® , and others. It was previously unknown why some individual dogs were sensitive and others were not.

How to Give Canine CPR


by Lori S. Mohr (First Aid For Dogs - Tim Hawcroft)

into an unconscious human. A similar technique can also work effectively on dogs.

The signs that indicate the need for CPR include unconsciousness, lack of
arousal, lack of physical movement, or eye blinking. These symptoms can occur
from drowning, choking, electrical shock, or a number of other situations.

Most veterinarians will agree that the most common underlying causes of ear problems in dogs are allergic reactions (inhalant and food allergies).

When Your Pon has fatty tumors

 

Occasionally, PON owners will post to Yahoogroups about bumps or fatty tumors they have come across while grooming their PONS and inquire if this is common in the breed. The answer is not uncomplicated, but studies indicate that overweight dogs are more susceptible to fatty tumors called lipomas. These lipomas have the consistency of a baggy filled with water and may be found all over a PON's body. For newbie owners this is scary and may result in a quick visit to the vet
