Veterinary, Pediatric, and Stylist Tips For The Week!

Alison’s Tip

There are 3 behaviors in dogs that require care and caution:

  • Food aggression
  • Children aggression
  • Dog aggression

These behaviors are instinct for certain dogs and although a dog can be worked with and trained, the behavior may never 100% go away.   No matter how extensive the training has been, ALWAYS be aware and proactive in scenarios that involve food, children, and other dogs.

Katie’s Tip

It might be spring but here in Florida we are already experience summer temperatures.  Did you know a child’s body surface area makes up a much greater proportion of their overall weight than an adult’s? This means that children are at a much greater risk for heat-related illness. A day outside should be treated as if your child is participating in a sporting event. It is recommended that a child drinks 5 to 9 ounces of water (10 to 18 “gulps”) every 20 minutes during activity depending on weight (teenagers should drink more). Younger children should be given water bottles with marks on the sides showing how much they should drink or be told how many “gulps” to drink. Bring a cooler filled with hydrating fruits like watermelon and cantaloupe.

 

Carrie’s Tip:

For all those celebrating Passover tonight, Happy Passover! I am by no means a cook. Since my husband and I will be keeping passover that means no bread all week long. Instead we substitute with Matzah. I have been busy looking up some fun recipes to try and here were a few of my favorites. Hopefully they’re just as tasty as they look lol. This matzo brie breakfast sandwich below looks so amazing! I found the recipe on iwillnoteatoysters.com.

Also here is a link to some other recipes look that look pretty amazing as well. Redbookmag.com has some great ones as well!
