What Is Dirofilariasis and Why Is It Dangerous For Your Dog?


Dirofilariasis is potentially deadly disease which is caused by Dirofilaria immitis (heartworm) – parasitic worms from the group of nematodes (roundworms).

Doglar is a puppy

Dogy

Doglar is one month old. And the idea of him is eight months old. By all the laws of nature and mathematics Doglar is a puppy. He looks like a puppy; he behaves like a puppy so he’s a puppy. Doglar reminds me of Precious and she was a puppy once. Not so long ago to forget what it was.

Unfortunately, Sofia’s public transport compliance with the “rules” depends entirely on the mood of the driver, meaning that they can let you in with your dog or they can return you to compliance with the mandatory requirements. According to the latest regulations pet transportation is permitted if the owner of the dog carries its registration documents or electronic card and, of course, purchase and validate the ticket for the dog. The owner is obliged to keep their pet on short unstretchable bond, the dog be muzzled or in a cage. I do not own muzzle for my 8-pound and extremely friendly French bulldog, even less desire I have to shut her in a cage in order to become a regular traveler to bus 102 for example. Therefore you need alternatives!
