Polish Lowland Sheepdog - PON - pon the dog

 

 

 

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.

 The International All-Breed Canine Association of America


(IABCA) began approximately seventeen years ago with the intent of
making an International "UCI" Championship Title available to the
American public without exposing the dogs to the danger and
inconvenience of  international travel.  To accomplish this an
association was formed with an International Association of dog clubs
headquartered in Germany, the Union Cynologie International (UCI).  The
UCI has been in existence for over thirty years.  There are many
countries throughout Europe, North America and the Far East represented
in the association.  Through UCI  International Titles are awarded to
dogs who meet the stringent requirements of their specific breed
standard in  their country of origin.

IABCA shows are held in accordance with the German regulations and
guidelines that have been established by UCI.  The guidelines provide
for a WRITTEN CRITIQUE OF EACH DOG ENTERED and a rating number of how
well a dog conforms to the International "UCI" breed standard.  The
rating a dog receives, based on the critique, will determine the type of
championship certificate awarded.

On the weekend of May 15th and 16th  2010,  in Hutchinson Minnesota, 
Stash and Paczki each earned their International Ch. Titles and their
IABCA  Ch.Titles under the very capable handling of Tom Pirc, my husband.

Central Florida Polish Lowland Sheepdog Fanciers Club

The Central Florida Polish Lowland Sheepdog Fanciers Club has received approval from the AKC to hold licensed championship point events.  This is a goal we have worked years to achieve and I want to thank each and every member for their assistance in reaching this goal.  We are the only AKC approved Regional Club in the US and you should be proud of your accomplishment.

 

This PON picnic to celebrate will be one of many yet to come.  We had 26 humans and 21 PONs attend along with a few honorary PONs for the day and there was not a cross bark anywhere - everyone had a good time and of course the PONs complained that they could not have any of the BBQ but did get their share of treats.

 

We are presently working on future programs for our PONs and announcements will be made as time nears for the functions. Congratulations to all and many thanks for your support.

Sincerely

Bill Gilchrist

Playing it safe with anesthesia

 

 When your PON is scheduled for a tooth cleaning or any other surgical procedure which requires anesthesia, it is of utmost importance that food is withheld at least twelve hours prior to surgery. Not only will this prevent your PON from vomiting and inhaling stomach contents during surgery, but it will also reduce nausea as your PON regains consciousness. This advice is vital for the well being of your PON and needs the co-operation of all family members.

Cranberries go to the dogs ... and cats

By DUNSTAN PRIAL, Standard-Times staff writer

The human health benefits of cranberries have been recognized by medical science for decades.
Now the cranberry industry hopes the nation's millions of pet owners will apply the same concept to their beloved cats and dogs.
A study to be released today by UMass Dartmouth's Center for Business Research has identified the $14 billion-a-year pet food industry as a potentially wide-open market for the slumping cranberry

  Green-lipped mussel (Perna canaliculus) is a New Zealand shellfish, from which an extract has been shown to be useful in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis  and osteoarthritis .

Green-lipped mussel inhibits inflammation in the body. Although inflammation is normal under certain conditions, consistent  inflammation can result in pain  and damage to the body, including the joints.

The Yin and Yang of the PON Digestive System

or

Striving towards a well balanced Healthy PON digestive system

 

  The concepts of Yin and Yang contributed to the Chinese scientific system, particularly in fields like biology and medicine The organs of the body were seen to be interrelated in the same kinds of ways as other natural phenomena, and most understood by searching for cause and effect. Illness was seen as a disturbance in the balance of Yin and Yang  caused by emotions, heat or cold, or other influences. Therapy thus depended on accurate diagnosis of the source of the imbalance.

PON owners can readily apply Yin and Yang to their management of PON nutrition and ultimately to solving digestive issues.

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. Advances in molecular biology at the Veterinary Clinical Pharmacology Laboratory at Washington State University's College of Veterinary Medicine have led to the discovery of the cause of multi-drug sensitivity in affected dogs

How to Give Canine CPR


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


CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) is the process of breathing life back
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.
The key to canine CPR is remembering the ABCs:

Make Your Own Natural Flea Repellent

 

European sources have confirmed the effective use of vinegar for flea control. To be sure of complete protection, please spray often (every hour) and  pour a small amount of apple cider vinegar into your PON'S drinking water on a regular basis.

Those gunky ears: Dealing with ear problems

 

  If you are one of those conscientious PON owners who have spent untold amounts of money with your local veterinarian for gunky ear problems, then it is high time to take matters into your own hands and look further than expensive veterinary ear solutions and  ear cleaning sessions at your vet's office.What are the main causes of canine ear problems ? 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

Central Florida Polish Lowland Sheepdog Fanciers Club

The Central Florida Polish Lowland Sheepdog Fanciers Club has received approval from the AKC to hold licensed championship point events.  This is a goal we have worked years to achieve and I want to thank each and every member for their assistance in reaching this goal.  We are the only AKC approved Regional Club in the US and you should be proud of your accomplishment.

 

This PON picnic to celebrate will be one of many yet to come.  We had 26 humans and 21 PONs attend along with a few honorary PONs for the day and there was not a cross bark anywhere - everyone had a good time and of course the PONs complained that they could not have any of the BBQ but did get their share of treats.

 

We are presently working on future programs for our PONs and announcements will be made as time nears for the functions. Congratulations to all and many thanks for your support.

Sincerely

Bill Gilchrist

**The Team of White Star PONs and Bogdanka PONs wish to dedicate all of Brady's Special Achievements, in loving memory of Julane White, who passed away October 1, 2008, never getting to see her dream of winning a National Specialty and Best In Show, with her beloved Brady, come true.  We know she will always be with us in spirit.

Playing it safe with anesthesia

 

 When your PON is scheduled for a tooth cleaning or any other surgical procedure which requires anesthesia, it is of utmost importance that food is withheld at least twelve hours prior to surgery. Not only will this prevent your PON from vomiting and inhaling stomach contents during surgery, but it will also reduce nausea as your PON regains consciousness. This advice is vital for the well being of your PON and needs the co-operation of all family members.

Keep your Pon's gums healthy with cranberries !

 

Cranberries go to the dogs ... and cats

By DUNSTAN PRIAL, Standard-Times staff writer

The human health benefits of cranberries have been recognized by medical science for decades.
Now the cranberry industry hopes the nation's millions of pet owners will apply the same concept to their beloved cats and dogs.
A study to be released today by UMass Dartmouth's Center for Business Research has identified the $14 billion-a-year pet food industry as a potentially wide-open market for the slumping cranberry

Does your PON suffer from arthritis ?

Green lipped mussels for alleviating arthritis in dogs.
 

  Green-lipped mussel (Perna canaliculus) is a New Zealand shellfish, from which an extract has been shown to be useful in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis  and osteoarthritis .

Green-lipped mussel inhibits inflammation in the body. Although inflammation is normal under certain conditions, consistent  inflammation can result in pain  and damage to the body, including the joints.

The Yin and Yang of the PON Digestive System

or

Striving towards a well balanced Healthy PON digestive system

 

  The concepts of Yin and Yang contributed to the Chinese scientific system, particularly in fields like biology and medicine The organs of the body were seen to be interrelated in the same kinds of ways as other natural phenomena, and most understood by searching for cause and effect. Illness was seen as a disturbance in the balance of Yin and Yang  caused by emotions, heat or cold, or other influences. Therapy thus depended on accurate diagnosis of the source of the imbalance.

PON owners can readily apply Yin and Yang to their management of PON nutrition and ultimately to solving digestive issues.

Multi-drug Sensitivity

Polish Lowland Sheepdog owners need to be informed !

 

 

 Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine
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. Advances in molecular biology at the Veterinary Clinical Pharmacology Laboratory at Washington State University's College of Veterinary Medicine have led to the discovery of the cause of multi-drug sensitivity in affected dogs

How to Give Canine CPR


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

CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) is the process of breathing life back
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.
The key to canine CPR is remembering the ABCs:

Make Your Own Natural Flea Repellent

Those gunky ears: Dealing with ear problems

 

  If you are one of those conscientious PON owners who have spent untold amounts of money with your local veterinarian for gunky ear problems, then it is high time to take matters into your own hands and look further than expensive veterinary ear solutions and  ear cleaning sessions at your vet's office.What are the main causes of canine ear problems ? 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
