back with the cbs-3 pet project, carroll erickson animal advocate with the pennsylvania spca is here, carroll, good morning, you've got a diva with you. >> i do, this is diva. we will talk about her in a little bit but you know, despite weather today which is , really way too cold and just the storm that justin's talking about coming up we will talk about spring, because with the clock change and all that we are starting to head into that season. let's dispel some of the myths out there i want to show you full screen graphic right now. here they are that we will talk b dogs eat grass to get sick. pets need regular bats. dogs age at same rate. flee as live in the spring. pets own grow one coat. i think pet owners, the very top one is the one you are probably most interested in. >> um-hmm. >> i thought it was true. >> if you google that you'll find millions of articles on it but they have done one good
study out of uc dave is in 2008. they found out that dogs are not eating grass to get sick, or some diet reason they are eating that grass possibly as a hold over from the ancestors , dogs wild ancestors , back in the day, the wolves, when they needed that grass to kind of help themselves through that whatever they were encountering out there in the wild, at that point, worms that sort of thing but it actually is not to get sick. is there sols feeling and i can just anecdotally tell you my dogs eat grass, they don't sick. they seem like like the taste it is common, normal and in fact more than 68 percent of dog owners report that their dogs eat grass on a daily weekly basis. if grass is sprayed or that sort of thing don't let them eat that but if you know it is something, you know, many vets were taught in school it was too make themselves sick. if the dog ate enough of it
they could do that. study show it wasn't from trying to make themselves sick >> everything in moderation. >> that is right. >> the other one is bats, people think we have to give our dog a bath all the time. they do not neat a bath. their furies designed to do without. owner may say he rolled in something i want to give you a bath. people shampoo are too harsh, use vet products only, and the advice is rinse, rinse, rinse and when you think you have rinsed enough keep rinsing because any of that soap that is left behind on their skin can be a real problem, for them. >> absolutely. >> they they don't need a bath if you don't want to do it. we all hear about that age seven years, it is not. it is, for medium sized dog from 20 to 50-pound but for dogs less that 20-pound edge at five and a half to six years, and then dogs over 90- pound will age at an pace of eight years. so, that is why these little
dogs seem to live longer and larger dogs unfortunately do not live as long. seven year ratio pretty standard 20 to 50-pound. other thing, up on the list that we want to talk about flee as live in the spring. actually flees can be in your heated house, throughout the winter. so they are ready to go. but also they do like heat and humidity so they will come out increasingly in the spring. make sure there is proper vet treatment for. that don't want to double on that, there is a flee and a collar and topical. you don't and it can be very dangerous to their pet. handle the flee things, but get your advice from the vet on. that also dogs environment you will find more flees and tics heading out to a dog park, just don't skip fun, just make sure your petties prepared for all that, activity. you are acting like a sweet angel. >> other one that i want to talk about is pets own grow
one coat? no, you may notice shedding now it is not just loosening up their winter coat but they are growing a whole new spring coat. so it is shorter, lighter and you'll find them shed that out as we head into the wintertime again it just makes sense. >> yes, exactly. >> so, just want todd call your attention to that. diva you are so good but we have some of you have friend at pennsylvania spca we want to talk about. this is karl, an adult pit mix , rescued from cruelty, learning his manners and he just recently mastered sit, hooray, he is, adult only home but they goes, showing off. look at spot chico, two-year old male look at that marking he knows sit, stay, come here, used to living in the busy home with all kind of people, even other dogs. people love this dog at shelter. he would be a wonderful dog to take home. lamb chop three-year old domestic short hair cat looking for her perfect home she came to the pennsylvania
