Let the dog use dog-specific toothpaste and toothbrush (can go to the pet hospital), do not use human toothpaste (because the dog does not gargle) gently brush the canine teeth.
3.The ear clean. One is to clear the dirt on the ear shell, and the other is to clean the ear canal. It is easier to clean the outer ear and you have to be careful when cleaning the ear canal. Use a cotton swab to lick a little olive oil. Wipe the mouth a little bit. The cotton swab should not be too long. The other hand grabs the ear and wipes it slowly until it is clean. If there is a lot of earwax in the external auditory canal, drop a drop of 2% borax water, soften it and carefully remove it with tweezers. When the dog’s head is shaking, immediately pull out the tweezers to prevent damage to the tympanic membrane or ear canal mucosa.

However, it should be noted that the base of each toe has a vascular nerve. Therefore, you can’t cut too much too much when trimming. Generally, only about 1/3 of the claws are cut off, and should be flattened. Prevent damage, such as abnormal dog movement after the cut, carefully check the toe, check for bleeding and damage, if there is damage, you can rub the iodine. In addition to the toenail, check the foot pillow for trauma. Also. The hair near the toe and foot pillows should be cut short to prevent slipping.
6.Combing hair. In the morning and evening, each bristles once, combing hair for five minutes every day, using a brush, elastic wire brush or a long and thin metal comb from the neck, quickly combing in the direction of the hair, from front to back, from top to bottom, first From the neck to the shoulders, then the back, waist, abdomen, hindquarters, re-comb, and finally the limbs and tail. Comb one side and comb the other side.
The cat will instinctively comb the fur to ensure that the fur is clean and not tangled. However, as a qualified shovel officer, it is necessary to clean the ears from time to time, doing dental care and nail care. So what do you need to pay attention to when cleaning cats? What are the general cleaning products for cats? Let’s take a look!
First, how do you do daily cleaning of cats?
1.Trim the nails. It is trimmed almost every week, especially for kittens. The nails are very fast and thin and pointed, and it is easy to scratch people. When trimming, don’t cut too much, just cut the transparent part of the front.
2.Ear cleaning. This is where the cat can’t clean it up, see if there are signs of inflammation, and if there are any abnormal symptoms. If the ear has odor or pus and inflammation, it is necessary to go to the hospital to check it and find out the disease in time for treatment. Prepare the ear wash, cotton swab, squeeze the ear wash into the ear canal and wet the auricle, gently rub the cat’s ear root, so that the ear liquid and dirt are in full contact. Then let the cat rub the ears, pick up the dirt in the ear canal, and then wipe it with a cotton swab to make the ear canal dry and clean.
3. Combing the hair. The cat will instinctively comb the coat and spend a lot of time to ensure that the coat is clean and not tangled. However, many cats, especially long-haired breeds, some of them exhibiting cats and old-aged cats, need the help of the owner to take care of the coat. Helping cats with basic cleansing, as well as cleaning and bathing, is also important to keep the cat refreshed. If you are a short-haired cat, it will be cleaned up by itself. If we help it, it will be fine once a week, mainly because the cat is shed, and it will be much more comfortable to comb.
4. Finally, take a shower. If the cat is not very dirty, don’t take a shower often. After all, every bath is like a snoring. It is also afraid, and the owner is also scared. Bathing frequency look at the situation, two or three months to six months wash wash will do, under the circumstances it.
Second, how to smoothly bathe the cat?
If the cat’s hair looks very shiny, and we hold the cat up, it feels like there is no smell on the cat. If the cat has an odor, then you can prepare to bathe the cat.
And according to different cats to carry out different bathing methods, for example, cats are short-haired cats, they are relatively simple to bathe, just prepare a bath, shower gel, hair dryer and towel. If it is a long-haired cat, it is also necessary to bring combed gloves, combs and scissors. Also prepare a piece of towel for them to wipe the body.
Finally, give the cat a bath, we have to be in a warmer environment, because if the temperature is low, the cat will catch a cold, we can first give him a little air conditioning or heating. In the first step, we gently put the cat on the water with a foot to see if he is more resistant. If the cat is not very resistant, he can put his body in the bathtub and hold one of his hands. Give your hand a bath and take a shower. If the cat is very resistant to water, then we have to take out the decontamination bag used in our secret weapon washing machine, because it can both tie the mouth and prevent the cat from sticking out the claws from inside to scratch us.
After the cat has been drenched with water, we will take out the cat’s special shampoo and use a proper amount of shampoo to rub on their hair. Short-haired cats can be rubbed with their fingers. Long-haired cats must use gloves or It’s a comb, because the hair inside is not easy to clean, we gently comb her, so that its hair is glued to the shower gel.
If you encounter a mess of hair, we would rather cut it and don’t pull it hard, because if they feel pain, they won’t let you bathe again next time. When we don’t pay attention to them, we can cut them off. The cat can’t find it either.
When washing, we must pay attention to throwing the hair combed down in time, because the cat will like to eat their own hair, so that the time is long and their body is not good, and after the shower can not just like this casually When the cat is let go, it should be wrapped in a large towel to bathe them, dry and then blow dry with a hair dryer. If you don’t blow it clean, the cat is really easy to catch a cold. For cats, a cold is still a very troublesome thing. When the hair on the cat is already half dry, we can use the comb to comb them again. After combing, we can wipe it again with the hair. Then we can put it in the sun and let it go to the sun.
Fish tank cleaning
First, the fish tank cleaning tool

Before cleaning the cage, find a place to place the hamsters. If there is a turtle box, you can put them in a small box. You can also pour a little bath sand in the small box to let the hamster take a shower. The hamster ball is also a good choice, so that the hamsters don’t have to be so boring, they can do the exercise by the way. But note that the cover of the hamster ball can easily be loosened after a few hits. It is best to stick the cover with a transparent glue to prevent the cage from being washed, and the hamster escapes from prison.
Clean the dirty litter. If there are more hamsters, you can put a disposable plastic tablecloth on the ground and the cage will go to the next button. After all the cages have been lowered, the garbage will be taken outside and thrown away. The cage chassis can be washed with water and washed with water as much as possible. The shower is opened to the maximum, then the stubborn stains are brushed off with an old toothbrush. After rinsing and then hot water, it can play a certain disinfection effect.

After you have caged everything, put the mats and put them in the cage, some hamsters may become a little uncomfortable, because the taste of the usual habits is gone, they may run wildly. These are normal. Usually after a while they will return to their original state. In addition to the usual food and drink utensils, the cleaning frequency of items like squirrel cages is not too high. However, such items should be disinfected once after cleaning to reduce the amount of bacteria and prevent the health of hamsters.
First, the daily cleaning of pet turtles
1.Turtle disinfection can be soaked in potassium permanganate dilution for 15 to 20 minutes. Potassium permanganate is a strong oxidant. When it comes to organic matter, it releases new ecological oxygen and kills bacteria. Its bactericidal power is extremely strong, and the concentration of turtles soaking is 1:2000-1:5000 (volume fraction), that is, 0.2-0.5 g of potassium permanganate is added to 1 kg of water.
2.Regularly clean the fish tank and soak the fish tank with potassium permanganate dilution for half an hour. Turtles will produce some domestic garbage every day, and the fish tanks should be cleaned in time to prevent the garbage from decaying and breeding bacterial viruses. Do a good job of cleaning in time to prevent turtles from getting sick.
3.to ensure the cleanliness of food, to prevent disease from entering the mouth. Any food should be inspected to ensure freshness and health, and can not carry any pathogens, parasites, viruses, bacteria, toxins, long-term consumption can ensure the safety and health of fish.
4.the turtle’s daily cleaning work, also includes regular replacement of new water. Make sure your pet turtle has a healthy, clean living environment. At the same time, pay attention to the right amount each time feeding, to ensure that the turtle can eat enough, to avoid excess food in the turtle basin, to prevent environmental pollution caused by food rot.
Second, how to raise a small turtle
Young turtles can be raised in a flat-bottomed container without difficulty. Plastic basins, plastic tanks, glass jars or boxes, and aquariums are all suitable. The water should not be too deep and the depth can make it swim well.
An ideal breeding ground must have some specific minimum requirements. Each young turtle must have five liters of water, and the water depth should not exceed the length of the turtle, so that the turtle can reach the ground when the turtle breathes. At the same time, they must also make bricks, stone tablets or buy terraces for the turtles to dry.
For small turtles, floating islands are not suitable, because small turtles that are too small are often afraid of going to the floating island. At present, the resin drying table on the market is a good choice, and the sinking wood is also a good natural land. On the other hand, it is also important to note that islands and decorations do not become dangerous obstacles, and the turtles are caught and drowned.
Young turtles can be raised on the balcony throughout the summer. In order to prevent the bird from walking, you can cover the net on the box. It is absolutely necessary to prevent young turtles from crawling out of the breeding box. The electric heater’s line and so on may even be the bridge for the young turtle to escape, because the “crawling power” of the young turtle is very high. If algae, such as moss, grow on the culture box, this is fine, but the water in the box cannot be stinky.
Next, we will talk about the feeding temperature of the small turtle. You may think that the water temperature is not well controlled. The water temperature that the young turtle can adapt is about 23-28 degrees Celsius. When it is cold, the air above the container should be warmed up, and a hood lamp can be added to the culture box to get the best of both worlds. If the water temperature is still too low, you can set a heating rod in the water – as far as possible, you can adjust the temperature. In fact, no matter what kind of pets you keep, you can’t afford to spend money.
The electric heating pipe sold by the aquarium store should be placed under the water surface, and the device should also pay attention to the possibility that the electric heater and the power cord should not catch the young turtle.
It is especially important that the young turtles have the opportunity to be exposed to direct sunlight. The breeding boxes can be placed on a balcony or window sill. If this is not possible, the turtles should be given ultraviolet light once or twice a week for about three to five minutes. . Ultraviolet light should not be too close to the young turtle to avoid excessive light and damage. It is best to use sunlight, but it should be noted that the container glass used does not filter out the required ultraviolet rays.
3. feed selection
The young turtles are mainly fed feed, requiring a protein content of 47%, a comprehensive amino acid and other nutrients, and a feed coefficient of 1.6 or less. Due to the use of defatted fishmeal in the preparation of compound feed, it is necessary to add 3% to 5% corn oil to supplement trace elements and vitamins, as well as health promotion and anti-drug drugs.
The domesticated turtle feed is not complicated. Under the conditions of artificial breeding, the internal organs, maggots and bread worms of poultry and pigs are the main ones. Properly mix fruits, vegetables and mixed feed to enhance nutrients in the body. Vitamin E powder and antibiotics are added in spring and autumn to increase the amount of eggs in the turtle and enhance the body of the turtle. Timing, fixed point and quality should be done in daily feeding.
