Brandon Sun (Newspaper) - July 6, 2002, Brandon, Manitoba STEVE DALE MY PET WORLD Will blasting car stereo bother my canine passenger? Q: I’m taking Borris, my boxer, on a long weekend to visit my mom in San Diego. In the past, I’ve taken a plane, but this year I’m driving. Mom thinks I should put Borris in a kennel, but I want the company on the road. Am I crazy? — C.S., Magnolia, Texas Q: I take my three-year-old Papillon everywhere I go, including on car trips. I wonder about the radio/CD volume in the car. When a great song comes on, I crank it up! Will this affect her? —    L.V., Cyberspace A: Borris won’t be the only canine on the road this summer. More and more families are taking pets along on car trips, and, overall, I think it’s a good thing, especially if you don’t have a human companion for the journey. According to the American Animal Hospital Association 2001/2002 Pet Owners’ Survey, 68 per cent of pet owners travel somewhere at least once a year with their pet. And if the trend continues of more people taking short driving trips rather than flying, that percentage will increase. Some dogs are especially sensitive to loud noises, but occasionally pumping up the volume on your car stereo is OK. However, if you can barely tolerate the sound yourself, it’s too loud for your dog. If you’re asking me about this because your pooch is whining, howling or holding her paws over her ears, you already have your answer. Of course, your dog’s response may have nothing to do with the volume, and everything to do with your taste in music. Q: You’ve written that this is a huge year for ticks. How do I find ticks on my hairy collie-mix, and what’s the best way to remove them? — S.H., Spartanburg, S.C. A: Finding a tick on a hairy dog is like searching for a single minnow in the Atlantic Ocean. After a romp through the woods — or any other area where there may be ticks — part the dog’s hair the best you can, then start searching at the head and work your way back to the tail. Dr. Ed Breitschwerdt, professor of medical infectious diseases at North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine, Raleigh, has a tip: “Begin by looking on the paws, between the toes and on the dog’s legs and belly where a tick is most likely to hitch a ride.” Also, look around the ears and under the legs, where there’s not as much hair. “People may not even know their dog has a tick because the deer tick (at the nymph stage) is only about as small as a dot of ink on a piece of paper,” Breitschwerdt notes. Some adult ticks may be as large as a dime, and will be either black, dark brown, grayish or reddish black. Once you’ve found one of the pests, here’s how to remove it: Breitschwerdt, who lectures on ticks all over the world, says to buy either a commercially available tick remover device or use a pair of tweezers. Reach onto the tick as far forward as you can, gently twist counter clockwise and lift out. Always wear gloves when removing ticks. If mouth parts or the tick’s head remain attached when you’re finished, don’t worry; they’ll eventually fall out. They may cause inflammation, but don’t worry unless the swelling remains for more than 24 hours after the mouth parts or head have dropped off. Never use fire when a tick is still on the animal. You’re likely to singe your pet’s coat. If possible, save the dead tick in a plastic vial, sealed plastic bag or your bank safety deposit box — away from curious children. “If your dog does become ill the vet can investigate the tick and have a head start to determine what disease may have been transmitted, since different tick species’ may carry different diseases,” says Breitschwerdt. Of course, the best defense is to keep ticks from hitching a ride on your pet in the first place. Consider a product called Preventic (a collar) or Frontline Plus (a liquid spot on that also protects against fleas). Steve Dale welcomes questions/comments from readers.
