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.

    History

    The Yorkshire Terrier, call Yorkie To abreviate, comes from the north of England and Scotland. Here it served for centuries as a versatile house and garden dog. Its territory was later the settlements of the working poor, that were built en masse with industrialization. The little houses were small, conditions were tight. There was no room for a big dog. The little terriers were exactly the right fit here and they served the village for many years as watchdogs and hunters. Keeping rats and mice away small, driving away a marten or fox that wanted to attack chickens or pigeons, occasionally killing a rabbit; the Yorkie proved to be a useful helper. It is even said that the old Yorkie has gone to the rabbit hole to hunt. Despite its rather delicate appearance, the Yorkshire Terrier it's a complete dog. Basically, it is a concise breed with a sometimes stubborn and fearless temperament. At the same time, has served as a lap dog for over 150 years.

    In ancient documents, even 6 KG as the weight of a Yorkshire Terrier. Like the other little British Isles terriers, the Yorkie ultimately originates from a single large gene pool of those terriers from early working class settlements. Only through deliberate artificial separation, namely, the separation of the brood, became the many terrier breeds that are genetically separated today. Already in 1873 the Yorkshire Terrier was recognized as a breed of dog by the Kennel Club.

    According to records, the Yorkshire Terrier was the first most popular breed in the United States in 2002. His first appearance in a canine exposition took place around 1880, and immediately he found wide acceptance in the public.

Keeping houses free from rats and mice, chasing away a marten or fox that wanted to feed on chickens or pigeons at night, proved helpful helpers at home and in court. The true strength of West Highland White Terrier was active fox hunting, the marten and the otter. The little terrier chased these thieves without fear and with all determination to the farthest corner of his burrow, where they were trying to get them out of the burrow, as the hunters counted.

It was always a fairly rare breed in Europe. That suddenly changed around 1990.

    The advertising industry recognized the attractive effect of this smart and happy little terrier. Dog food brands like “César” remain inseparably connected with Westie.

He was temporarily better known than the Sausage dog or German Shepherd. The serious breeding scene could not meet the demand for puppies from Westie.

    Captain Tucker-Edwards, who lived on his Sealy Ham estate in Pembrokeshire / Wales, He began in the mid-19th century to create a breed that fit his ideas of a dog suitable for hunting badgers., otters and martens. However, It has never been clear which races were actually involved in creating the Sealyham. The Dandie Dinmont Terrier, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, the Bullterrier and the Fox Terrier were probably used to obtain the desired sharp hunting dog, bold, callous and brave.
    After the Captain's death in 1891, her daughter and her friends continued the upbringing. In 1910 the breed was admitted to the championship exhibitions and was therefore recognized as a breed. Soon these vital and intrepid Welsh terriers made a great impression and demand increased..

    Whatever the exact breed mix, the captain had admirable success, creating a fearless and hard-working hunter who was also a charming companion by the fire. The years between the world wars were the heyday of the breed in America. The Sealys they won the Westminster Best Dog Show award three times this time, among them was the most famous show dog of the Prohibition era, a Sealy called bootlegger. His high profile was reinforced by top notch Hollywood owners like Humphrey Bogart, Gary Cooper y Cary Grant.

    The popularity of Sealyham terrier among pet owners has decreased since those heady days, considering the many qualities of the breed. “They could be one of the best kept secrets of dogs”, says a lover of Sealyham terrier. The breed today is slightly larger and more affable than the first-bred terrier terriers bred by Captain Edwardes. Your kindness is very useful as therapists in nursing homes and children's hospitals.

His attention and his big dog bark make the Sealys excellent guard dogs. Blessed with an adaptable nature, the Sealys are willing to live in the city or in the country.

    Character and skills

    The Sealies are the typical terriers, since they are sure of themselves and curious. However, they are softer and less noisy than other terrier breeds, which makes it easier to live with them.

    The Sealies they are outgoing and friendly, but alert. They tend to be reserved with strangers and are excellent guard dogs with an impressive bark.

    Sealyham Terrier Health

    The Sealyham Terriers have no significant health problems. However, as with any dog, there are some conditions and diseases that Sealyhams they could be prone, such as lens dislocation and retinal dysplasia.

    Lens dislocation. The lens of the eye can move when the supporting ligament is damaged. Sometimes it can be treated with medication or surgery, but in severe cases it may be necessary to remove the eye.
    Retinal dysplasia. It is a malformation of the development of the retina with which the dog is born. Most cases are mild and there is no noticeable loss of vision. Veterinary ophthalmologists can do tests to determine if puppies are affected when they have 7 a 12 weeks of age. Retinal dysplasia should not affect a dog's ability to function as a companion, but the Sealyhams affected should not be raised.
    Although these ailments are rarely reported in Sealyham Terriers, you should research breeders and find those who do the proper testing at your kennel to make sure you get the healthiest dog possible.

    Sealyham Terrier Care

    The small size and robust construction of the Sealyham terrier make it a good choice for city or country dwellers. It is relatively idle indoors and can adapt to life without a patio, as long as you have walked daily. If you have a patio, must be fenced to avoid chasing other animals or going hunting.

    The Sealyhams they are quite discreet, They're not here “busy” like most terriers. Due to its size, their loyalty to their families and their preference for cool temperatures, they perform better as domestic dogs.

    Like most terriers, to the Sealies they like to dig and bark. This dog is an independent thinker and requires firm and consistent handling., but responds well to training with positive reinforcement techniques like food rewards, praise and play.

    Sometimes the Sealies can be difficult to train at home, but patience and a regular schedule generally brings success.

    Sealyham Terrier grooming

    The Terriers de Sealyham have medium length and weather resistant double coats. The undercoat is dense and soft, while the top layer is hard and lean. The hair around the face and muzzle is very long, compared to the rest of the coat. The Sealyham they are all white, although some have lemon marks, brown or badger on the head and ears.

    To look good, the Sealyham Terriers they should be brushed three times a week to prevent tangles from forming on the long hair of the head, legs and chest. Brushing by hand – plucking off dead hair to stimulate new hair growth – maintains correct hard coat texture, but this can be a laborious process.

    Many pet owners choose to cut their dog's hair. The downside is that the coat becomes much softer and can shed more than just bare fur, that comes off only slightly. You can learn how to trim your Sealy yourself or you can take it to a professional hairdresser.

    Other grooming needs are dental hygiene and nail care.. Brush your teeth Sealyham at least two to three times a week to eliminate tartar buildup and accompanying bacteria. Daily is better.

    Cut her nails once or twice a month, as necessary. If you can hear the click of the nails on the floor, they are too long. Short nails keep your feet in good shape and won't scratch your legs when the Sealyham jump to greet you.

    Start getting used to your Sealyham terrier to have it brushed and examined when it's a puppy. Handle your feet frequently – dogs are sensitive to their feet – and look into your mouth and ears.

    Make grooming a positive experience full of praise and rewards, and will lay the groundwork to facilitate veterinary examinations and other manipulations as an adult.
