Re: “Get Yer Dawg On!

Only in Bend can you get a cold one on tap for you and your pooch! Way to go, Dawg Grog and Riverside Market...brilliant.

When I host my first Customize Your Quit Retreat with your Canine Quit Buddy (tobacco cessation) at the Riverhouse hotel, we will take a road trip to Riverside Market.

Re: “A Rawhide a Day Keeps the Veterinarian Away

Great advice, Dr. Scott. Thank you.

As a tobacco cessation facilitator, may I also add: Please do not smoke tobacco in the presence of your pets, especially in the car where the secondhand smoke particles can be particularly concentrated. When you smoke, your dog secondhand smokes and the results can be tragic. Depending on the length of its snout, second smoke can cause nasal /sinus tumors (longer snouts) or lung cancer (shorter to medium snouts). Dogs in smoking households are 3 times more likely to develop these tumors and cancers and usually die within a year of being diagnosed.

The chemicals in secondhand smoke also affect a dog's central nervous system and they can experience allergic reactions, including scratching, biting and chewing of their skin. When a smoker or chewer handles tobacco products then pets his/her dog, the nicotine and other chemicals are transferred to the pet's fur. When they groom themselves, they ingest those chemicals directly into the bloodstream.

Lastly, dogs can develop sometimes fatal nicotine poisoning either by ingesting cigarettes, cigars, or smokeless tobacco, nicotine gum, patches or lozenges, or by drinking water that contains tobacco butts. symptoms of nicotine poisoning include: vomiting, diarrhea, tremors and twitching, hallucinations, drooling, constricted pupils and a racing heart. Get a dog who exhibits these signs to a vet immediately or call Animal Poison Control at 888-426-4435.

If you are interested in quitting tobacco and using your canine quit buddy to help you, Customize Your Quit: Tobacco Cessation For Life has some upcoming tobacco cessation retreats right here in Bend at the dog-friendly Riverhouse Hotel. Details to be posted at : www.customizeyourquit,com
