An irreverent Fun Tour Of All The Major Systems That Make Dogs So Special & How To Make Them Work Well Together!
Our dogs are far more than the sum of their parts, but knowing what’s inside them matters. In this two-part webinar series, we will look at the major systems that make our dogs so special, and then look at how to make those systems work well together, and for a very long time.
Participants will learn some amazing things about their dogs, but will also learn how to use that information to enhance the relationship and to maximize the precious time together. We will include opportunities to discuss common issues and for questions.
There is no conceivable way to diagnose your dog in a webinar setting; besides I am a research biologist not a veterinarian. You will learn how to better communicate with veterinarians and to your clients. For the professional, this series should help you explain better what is happening with your client’s dogs.
THE MAJOR COMPONENTS THAT MAKE A DOG A DOG
Digestion: Let’s start with something we can all sink our teeth into: the canine digestive system. We will look at the parts that process all of the food that energizes your dog, from teeth to anus, with stops along the way in the stomach and the intestines.
Circulation: All of that energy from feeding needs to get moved around, so we will look into the circulatory system. You may think your dog is all heart, but there is so much more in the blood and the vessels that carry that life sustaining fluid.
Movement: Much of that food energy distributed by the blood ends up in muscles to move about, and the skeleton without which the muscles would be just a quivering mass on the floor. No, you won’t have to learn the names of all 200 bones and 600 muscles, but knowing how they work will help you know when trouble is developing.
Thinking: The largest energy using organ of the body is the brain, so we need to look into the nervous system to see what it keeps track of and what it coordinates. We will also take a look at looking, and nose around a bit in smelling, because sensing is different in dogs than us. Same parts, different outcomes.
