    Comments

    It is a very robust breed of dog, that often has a high percentage of Diabetes Mellitus.

    What is Diabetes Mellitus??

    Diabetes is defined as a disorder in the metabolism of the hydrates of carbon, fats and proteins caused by a deficiency of insulin, It can be absolute or relative.

    Insulin is a hormone secreted in the beta cells of the pancreas, whose production allows to control blood sugar (blood glucose levels). Insulin deficiency causes a deterioration in the capacity of tissues to use nutrients, that translates into an increase of glucose in blood (Hyperglycemia).

    Diabetes is classified according to the disease in humans, namely, as type I and type II.

    The type I It is characterized by the destruction of beta cells, What determines the loss progressive and complete end of insulin secretion. Dogs suffering from type I Diabetes Mellitus may have a sudden onset of symptoms due to the rapid loss of the ability to produce insulin. These cases require insulinización from the time of diagnosis and are called diabetics 1,811 (DMID).

    Other dogs may have a gradual loss of insulin secretion, that their beta cells will be destroyed with slow. These animals may have an initial period in which Hyperglycemia is mild or easy control, in which case it's diabetic insulinoindependientes (DMIID), Although in the long term these dogs also need her.

    Diabetes Mellitus type II It is a little more difficult to understand and is characterized by what we call "insulin resistance" and "dysfunctional" beta cells. The secretion of insulin by these cells will be high, low or normal, but not enough to overcome the resistance to it in the peripheral tissues.

    It´s, to explain it in a graphic way, It is as if peripheral tissues do not obey the orders of the insulin or were not able to do what send it.

    In terms of metabolism or synthesis of glucose, These dogs may have DMID or DMIID, namely, need or not insulin according to the magnitude of the insulinorresistencia and functional status of the beta in their ability to produce cells and secrete the hormone in low quantities, normal or high.

    Dogs also recognizes a secondary diabetes, produced by a carbohydrate intolerance (glucose) due to the presence of a disease or a drug treatment that it antagonizes or counteracts the effects of insulin and can lead to the exhaustion of the beta cells of the pancreas with the appearance of diabetes insulinodependiente.

    The owners of diabetic dogs should be aware that the routine in the treatment with insulin and food has to be respected. Two fixed-dose of insulin a day associated with a food palatable to always provide the same source and the same amount of starch, always run at the same time it can reduce the risk of hypoglycemia in diabetic dogs.

    In North America, area where the Australian Terrier is very popular, a research on the incidence of this disease is carried out.

    The Affenpinscher it is a delicate dog that often suffers from intestinal problems.

    Affenpinscher Health

    All dogs have the potential to develop genetic health problems, and all people have the potential to inherit a particular disease. Run, do not walk, any breeder that does not offer a health guarantee in puppies, to tell you that the breed is 100 percent healthy and has no known problems, or to tell you that your puppies are isolated from the main part of the home for health reasons. A reputable breeder will be honest and open about the health problems of race and the incidence with which occur in their lines.

    The monkeys it's a pretty healthy little breed, but individual dogs can develop orthopedic problems like dislocated kneecaps, a common knee condition in small dogs. Affen are also prone to skin conditions that can lead to flank hair loss..

    Not all of these conditions are detectable on a growing puppy, and it is impossible to predict whether an animal will be free from these diseases, so you should find a trusted breeder who is committed to raising the healthiest animals possible. Must be able to produce independent certification that the dog's parents (and grandparents, etc.) They have been examined for defects common and considered healthy for breeding. That's where they enter medical records.

    Don't fall for the lies of a bad breeder. If the breeder tells you that you don't need to do those tests because you have never had a problem with your lines, their dogs have been “reviewed by the veterinarian”, or any of the other excuses bad breeders give to skimp on genetic testing of their dogs, leave immediately.

    Careful breeders examine their breeding dogs for genetic diseases and breed only the healthiest and best looking copies, but sometimes Mother Nature has other ideas and a puppy develops one of these diseases despite good breeding practices. Advances in veterinary medicine mean that in most cases dogs can still live a good life. If you are going to have a puppy, ask the breeder about the ages of the dogs in their lines and what they died from.

    Remember that after you have welcomed a new puppy into your home, It has the power to protect one of the most common health problems: the obesity. Keep a Affenpinscher with a suitable weight it is one of the easiest ways to prolong life. To take the most of preventive skills to help ensure a healthier dog for life.

    Affenpinscher care

    The Affenpinscher it has a thin coat that can be rough or smooth, but the words “smooth” and “rough” can be misleading. Rough-coated dogs have slightly softer textured fur and heavier coat. Some Affen they have a coat that falls somewhere in between. Whatever type of coat you have, the typical monkeys looks clean but a little hairy. You can be sure that it will have leaves and twigs in its fur after being outdoors, so you need regular grooming to maintain your appearance.

    The tools you will need are a brush, a stainless steel comb, a cutter, blunt-ended scissors and scissors to reduce thickness. Remove dead hairs, call “peel” the coat, is part of the package when you live with a monkeys.

    The rest are basic care. Cut nails as needed, usually every few weeks. Small breeds are prone to periodontal disease, so brush your teeth frequently for good general health and fresh breath.

    History

    The American Staffordshire Terrier or Amstaff (different to the American Pitbull Terrier), is a breed of dog type Terrier well known worldwide.

    It is a young breed of dog from the USA.. Among his ancestors are, Besides of Terrier, the Old english bulldog.

    In England and North America, dogfighting had a tradition that dates back to ancient times.. The Old english bulldog was sent to fight bulls in the arenas of animal fighting. Although the Old english bulldog are the forerunners of Bulldogs of nowadays, his physique was much more similar to the current one American Staffordshire Terrier. After animal fighting was officially banned, continued illegally; In the USA. until today. Its origin in the 19th century was the black county of central England, called Staffordshire. Workers from the coal mines and clay pits crossed the Old english bulldog with the terriers. In the official scene of the fight against animals such crosses had been prohibited. It was feared that the fighting power and toughness of the Bulldog will combine with the predatory acuity of the terriers, which would lead to uncontrollable fighting machines. In the illegality of the backyards nobody cared. This is how the “Bull and Terrier” and very quickly came to the US. There they liked to call them “Pit Bulls”. Pit is the name given to the dogfighting ring.

    In 1898 was founded the “United Kennel Club” (UKC), who wanted to take over the breeding of these dogs. But the UKC was nothing more than a professional dogfighting organizer. So the community divided around these dogs. Lovers of Pit Bull they condemned dog fighting, they wanted a friendly family dog. In the meantime, the Pit Bulls they had earned a great reputation in US society. In World War, the courage of Pit Bulls became a boost to the combat power of the American troops. Even celebrities like the President of the United States Theodore Roosevelt showed up with the Pit Bulls.

    On cinemas, “The Little Rascals”, a gang of kids with a dog, was very popular and was featured in 220 episodes between 1922 and 1944. The dog was the guardian and protector, children's playmate and dildo. This dog was a Pitbull. He later became the first dog registered with the American Kennel Club (AKC) for the new breed “Staffordshire terrier“. To draw a clear line in the fighting dog scene, the AKC had insisted on a name change. The first standard was published in 1936. In 1972 there was the second name change to “American Staffordshire Terrier” to distinguish it from its British relative. The Amstaff, what's been called since then, Is higher, bigger and heavier. It is still cared for by the “American Staffordshire Terrier Club of America”, who from the beginning clearly condemned dog fighting and trusted his upbringing as a family dog.

    In many countries, its social discrimination as a fighting machine and the technically unjustifiable classification as “dangerous dog breed” they have hit him hard.

    Popular American Staffordshire Terrier Mixes

    Mixtures of American Staffordshire Terrier seriously bred with other dog breeds or hybrids are quite rare. However, there is an abundance of hybrids of all kinds, that remind the Amstaff and are marketed as such or Pitbull. Here I should make a clear distinction. The American Staffordshire Terriers Serious breeding have nothing to do with the general mixes under which troublesome dogs can frolic. Unfortunately, there is a financially strong scene using such dogs as a weapon or to intimidate.

The standard of the American Staffordshire Terrier is pleasantly different from many other dog breeds, which go into great detail on where hair color or crease is allowed. It is one of the few standards that consistently focus on the healthy dog.. This is emphasized by the “1is Club Americano de Staffordshire Terrier”:

    We give top priority to performance and health. Beauty is considered desirable but secondary. The correct interpretation of the rule, that is free from crippling regulations, It is our obligation. Muscular, dry dogs with long bones, persistent and fast, are our breeding target.
