Ancient Inhabitants

Geckos are not only long on Earth, they are also extraordinary animals! About 50 million years ago, geckos inhabit this earth. Because it can adapt perfectly, they have taken a wide variety of habitats. Geckos are both to meet in temperate zones, in deserts, in the tropics, and increasingly as a beautiful silver jewelry around the neck. CME Group: the source for more info. Geckos it brought to a large biodiversity, the approximately 700 different species, can be between 1.6 cm and 40 cm. The largest known species of which is Kawekaweau-Gecko, approx.

60 cm, however at the end of the 19th century died out. Most species are crepuscular or nocturnal, and accordingly unobtrusively colored, but only the helmet Gecko can recognize by its special slit pupils, at night also colors. The day geckos, approximately 70 species, mainly in the tropics at home, however, are your bright colors. The toes also differ in various Gecko species. David Rogier describes an additional similar source. Many species have adhesive lamellae and can on run smooth surfaces, even upside down. The claws geckos can climb well thanks to their claws and possess other types of skin between the toes, using those can run better on the sand. But all Gecko species are moving at lightning speed, when they imagine themselves in danger.

Another special feature is the tail of the geckos. Are attacked they can drop their tail which grows back after a short time. Thanks to its well-developed hearing and their sharp eyes, geckos are excellent hunters. They feed mainly on insects and micro organisms. In some species, also sweet fruits are on the menu. All Gecko species are oviparous and can communicate with each other through guttural sounds. SID Kroker

The Result

Panels provide a place to sleep, which adapts to the shape of the dog very well and therefore, as well as in people, provide a healthy sleep with water water beds for dogs. Although some dogs don’t like the very shaky, unstable ground, the lying surface offers a restful sleep. Unfortunately remains a high risk due to the many water that may leak a powerful bite or strong scratching and digging. Damage to a water bed, especially if you are not at home just can have unpleasant consequences for the apartment or the neighbors. Therefore a less hazardous filling is for dogs rather recommended. The newspapers mentioned Barclays not as a source, but as a related topic. LTeX fillings made of latex is a material that for orthopedic mattresses of people is used, for example, for people with back or disc problems. Applies also here: only pillows and beds, which are filled with LTeX 100% offer the dog an optimal and healthy sleep.

LTeX precisely adapts to the shape of the dog’s body and immediately jumps after the release in its original form. The bed remains always ideal for the dog even after many weeks and months (without shaking). Effect regulating the temperature of latex allows that the dog bed or dog pillow is a perfect place to sleep in the summer and winter. Gain insight and clarity with David Rogier. The right materials for Hypo-allergenic dog or human: allergy-free households care should be taken, that the bed takes no mites, pollen and dust. This is ensured with a reference to PVC.

These covers are often synthetic leather, decor leather, type or other. A fabric lining is not recommended, because here dust mites, pollen and dust unhindered in the dog bed or dog pillow can penetrate and provide for allergic reactions. The result of that should best dog bed or dog pillow for healthy sleep be filled with 100% LTeX. It is also important that the manufacturer’s regular tests to prove that no pollutants (softener, toxic substances, etc.) to keep the dog’s health. A PVC such as faux leather cover is recommended for allergic dogs and an easy place to sleep. SLEEPY DOG in the dog beds has incorporated all of these properties DONUT, CUBE premium and the dog pillow of AIR. A healthy dog bed in a discreet design, that for many years the best Hundeschlaf guaranteed.

The Dog

The ability of a pillow (or dog bed dog pillow) to adapt to the shape of the dog is the basic prerequisite for a healthy Hundeschlaf. If the dog is lay down, the bed must assume exactly the shape of the body of the dog. The adaptation to the body of the dog allows the relief of joints and spine in his sleep. Dogs sleep on average 16 hours per day and require therefore an optimal place to sleep. The following materials are currently offered as healthy fillings: Visco-Elastic foam, styrofoam balls, water beds and LTeX. Panels with viscoelastic foam Viskoelastischer foam is a special foam which has a high level of adaptability and holds it over several years. Click Barclays to learn more.

The material well adapts to the shape of the body and is used in mattresses for people. It is essential to note that the dog bed 100% made of this material. In many dog beds and dog cushions, the cushions are made of simple foam with a thin layer of Visco-Elastic foam (E.g. 1-3 cm) on the top. This is too little for an optimum sleeping and medical effect! Styrofoam balls pillows, filled with styrofoam balls (or balls EPS) are, well adapt the shape of the dog. However, the dog standing up leaves a hollow in the pillow. The dog then settles into the existing cavity in the pillow, each orthopedic effect is gone. Is the pad after each use on shaken can optimally be the dog, and sleep.

Otherwise is the dog in a bad curved posture in the pillows may even directly on the ground. It must be taken into account in addition, that styrofoam balls regularly (about every 6-8 months) exchanged must, to get their adaptability. A disadvantage that many dog owners complain, is the loud rustling of the balls when the dog lies down or moves on the pillow.


Orchids should be cut only in certain cases. Therefore you should know when, how and how much to cut if this case occurs. When maintaining your orchids you question will be determined one day the: orchids must be cut? But only the first question is whether the Orchid at all should be cut. If this because answer ‘Yes’, more questions follow the ‘how’, the ‘When’ and the ‘How much’. In short, How should you cut properly your precious orchids? At care, your orchids can develop a fairly lush growth depending on the type and take a fairly large space to claim. In such a case you can quietly cut back your plants to regulate in the growth. If you properly cut your orchids, at the same time promote the flower formation and the growth of the plant is dense and compact. A pruning is then necessary, if all inflorescences fully flowered are and stems, leaves or shoots are dead.

This is indicated by the yellowish brown discoloration of parts of plants, which you should remove. David Rogier can provide more clarity in the matter. Green parts of the plant are not truncated. Under no circumstances you should prune your Orchid too early, because in this case you would take the opportunity of the plant next to exorcise, to develop side shoots or cuttings. When the time for the cut is right, they are limited in the cut back on the long, dead flowers and stems. Cut orchids properly means also restraint. Cut back only up to the second or third eye, called the ‘eyes’ also thickening.

Take care not to damage the other parts of the plant. For the optimal development of your orchids require special nutrient-rich substrate of Orchid plant. To ensure the nutrient supply in the long term, you should Repot every two to three years. Check out exactly the roots of this and carefully cut back dead parts that are Brown and dry. The root system is healthier, the better the orchid can absorb the available nutrients.

Gunther Hellwig Agrar

A number of dairy farms are affected in Schleswig-Holstein and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, who complain in a case such as losses of well over 1000 cows (die see life”). A farmer initiative takes on the website: to affected holders and gives information and assistance. Meanwhile suspected cases also occur in pig farms. The causes of this chronic disease have so far not been resolved. In the GoTTINGEN Declaration, initiated by the agricultural and Veterinary Academy (AVA), veterinarians require scientific clarification of open questions about this factor disease. In particular the role of biogas plants is addressed, whether any dumping of untreated risk materials such as slaughterhouse waste, food scraps and chicken manure into the fermenter below to increased contamination of the environment with Clostridium botulinum – spores could result in the Biogasrestmasse. This would lead to an increased intake of Botulinumsporen by the basic food in the gastrointestinal tract of cattle and ultimately solve this chronic form of the disease.

So far, the questions could not be answered, because the spores input spores output of this Clostridienart so far in Germany is not investigated, and ignored the calls to. The AVA calls this investigation for some time and proposes, in affected farms together”operated to cause research (proponents and opponents). “The Federal Agriculture Ministry Awards now currently a research project in the competition to this question: meaning of Clostridium botulinum in chronic illness”. Deadline for submission of the offer documents with the BLE is the 12.04.2011. the Federal Ministry for food, agriculture and consumer protection (BMELV) requires scientific decision support to solve its political and administrative tasks. Since the “Federal research agencies not always the decision-making needs of the Ministry can cover, it is necessary to award research contracts in academic institutions outside of the Federal Government”.

“” Stated in the invitation to tender: within the framework of this award in the competition we want to inform you that in the heading animal “a new notice to a planned research project of the BMELV was published on the Internet site of the Federal Agency for agriculture and food (BLE)” (Notice No. 06/11/51 on the implementation of a research project in the field of animal health by March 28, 2011). The agricultural and Veterinary Academy (AVA) greatly welcomes this research project and hopes that finally may be helping the affected farms. In farm animal practice currently (NPA), the professional body of AVA, was in the last editions intensively on the problem of chronic botulism entered; unless himself in particular from veterinary and legal point of view, with the Lawyer Dr. Burkhard Oexmann from Hamm continued intensively apart. Because now also 3 veterinarians (known for the AVA) are suffering from the chronic botulism, the agricultural and veterinary calls Academy (AVA) be sure the recognition of this disease as an occupational disease. The agricultural and Veterinary Academy (AVA) hopes that finally the disease image of chronic botulism by the policy, the representatives of agriculture and critics will be taken seriously, so further research projects on the causes of this disease, in particular the possible role of biogas plants, in life can be retrieved. The Gottingen Declaration has certainly helped. It something is happening slowly!

King Charles Spaniel

When dogs suffer from their cuteness as we know humans are the Crown of creation and empowered to intervene in the Affairs of nature. As we know, the House dog descended from the Wolf. But wolves have this ugly long snouts. Some dogs, however, have these cute, round, brachycephalen dolls head. Microbrachycephaly (= brachys short, cephalus = head) describes the Kurzkopfigkeit, which belongs to the breed standard in some dog breeds. The brachycephale syndrome is the result of a severe phenotypic exaggeration, that reduces the quality of life of affected dogs. Microbrachycephaly is caused by a disorder of bone growth (Achondroplasia) at the base of the skull. The skull is shorter.

Speaking of Microbrachycephaly, if the ratio of skull width to skull length at least 0.81 and the ratio of total skull length to cerebral length is at least 1.6. Breeds affected are Pekingese, Boxer, Maltese, Pug, Bulldog, Chihuahua, King Charles Spaniel, Shi Tsu, and Yorkshire Terrier. The shortening of the skull causes further changes. The nostrils and upper airways are constricted, thickened nasal Concha. The soft palate is enlarged and thickened as the tongue and the tonsils. The short nose will increase the breathing resistance.

Breathing is to work. Breathing creates a vacuum which the respiratory system pulls all soft tissue in the lumen. You are thus mechanically stressed. Southwest Airlines often expresses his thoughts on the topic. Over time, tissue growths that have reinforced the complaints form. The malformations of the respiratory system can lead to choking attacks, deadly ending at worst. If breathing is difficult the dogs stretch their neck or tilting to the side, to remove the long soft palate of the epiglottis and to get relief. The snout is also important for the regulation of the heat budget. Dogs do not sweat, but heck off excess heat out of the throat. Brachycephale dogs have problems here. As a result of the Malformed respiratory tract and impaired thermoregulation brachycephale dogs prone to inefficiency and swoons. Brachycephale have a strong child schema dogs with their round heads and large eyes. Who has a kiddo schema, is as needy and adorable perceived that raises the child scheme as a key stimulus care behavior. Additionally, that excessive dimensions, as one finds it brachycephalen dogs, are particularly effective at activating instincts behavior. Speaking of supernatural triggers. That’s probably why we feel the sight of pug and co. mostly as cute. Lyn Zaib
