She’s so obsessed that we need to distract her to get her to eat. What’s this all about? Does she want to mother them? A: “Of course, it’s hard to say what’s going on in your dog’s head, but it’s likely either entertaining for your dog to watchSource: http://hartfordcourant.feedsportal.com/c/34278/f/623753/s/3df7f0d2/sc/22/l/0L0Scourant0N0Cconsumer0Chc0Els0Emy0Epet0Eworld0E0A8310E20A140A830A0H0A0H30A0A4210A0Bstory0Dtrack0Frss/story01.htm

Ticks may transmit disease faster than currently thought

By Shereen Lehman NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – Brazilian ticks that carry Rocky Mountain spotted fever passed the disease to animal hosts in as little as 10 minutes if they had recently fed on another animal, a new study found. “The current literature, including medical textbooks and guidelines for the general public, has repeatedly advised that an infected tick requires a minimum feeding period varying from 2 to 10 hours to transmit Rickettsia rickettsii – the bacterium that causes Rocky Mountain spotted fever – to humans,” Marcelo Labruna told ReutersSource: http://news.yahoo.com/ticks-may-transmit-disease-faster-currently-thought-171211724.html

He was discovered the following day by staff. It was originally feared every one of the 100 females could have been ‘bedded’ by RandySource: http://www.coventrytelegraph.net/news/coventry-news/randy-rodent-becomes-dad—7633588
