The powerful sense of smell.
One of the dog’s natural trait is its astounding sense of smell. In fact, a dog’s sense of smell is 100 times accurate and stronger than any human. Thus, there is a particular classification of working dogs whose noses and their keen sense of smell have been developed to do an important role in crime forensics. These dogs are called cadaver dogs. A cadaver dog is a classification of a search and rescue canine who are further categorized as ‘airscenting’ or trailing dogs.
Cadaver dogs are specially trained canines to trace and follow the scent of a decomposing human flesh. Although their task was not a pretty thing to do and not the ordinary canine task of search and rescue, their job was vital not only to the families of a crime’s victims but pretty much helpful to the justice system that need a body to prove a crime. These dogs deal on the detection of scent of decomposing bodies above the soil and ground. The same principle in a canine’s search and knowhow of where he last buried his bone.
Breed and training.
Although breed is not a factor for being a cadaver dog, but a well-built dog is needed to endure long hours of search and trailing. Training for a cadaver dog starts at the age range from 9 to 18 months. Training can take up from 4 to 18 months to complete allowing the dog to properly mature and develop their aptitude and skills in their sense of smell. Aside from searching and locating cadavers on crime related assignments, they are also trained on various types of assignments such as disaster response and rescue.
Smell and Fetch!
It is said that the task of a cadaver dog can be the biggest challenge in a forensic investigation. Finding a corpse that may have been hidden on piles of dirt, soil and other rubbles is always a difficult place to be especially for humans. But canines whose role was to seek for the scent of a decomposing body the task was just an ordinary play of seeking an object given some point of scent their handler would give them to seek about. It is basically an ordinary game of ‘Fetch!’ to them no matter how stinky the object of the game was. In order to give due credits to a few of these cadaver dogs whose immense contribution in bringing and finding justice to the bodies they’ve found. In human remains detection, a canine’s nose knows best and can be relied upon in helping solve forensic cases.

Summer is one of those months where some of our canine pals sometimes got to have the so called lactose intolerance. Feeding them much ice cream and cold dairy products can make them uncomfortable and in pain because of the condition called lactose intolerance.
What is lactose intolerance?
Why does the body need lactose?
Lactose is needed in the body because of their high nutritional value and bioactive properties in improving health and wellness. The lactase enzyme in our body system and those of our pets are in abundance at birth and helps us thrive on our mother’s milk. But as we grow old the body production of the enzyme diminishes and drops to a level of about 10% of its peak production making us prone to lactose intolerance.
How does lactose intolerance affect dogs?
Lactose intolerance is a common digestion disorder in dogs because dogs don’t have the key enzyme called lactase needed to digest lactose. Since the undigested lactose can’t be absorbed by the body system it remains in the intestines causing symptoms like upset tummies, bloating, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea which can lead to severe dehydration. However, depending on the dog’s metabolism, the effect and symptoms varies in several ways for different type of dogs.
Lactose in milk.
Although lactose is found in milk, this does not however mean that milk is ‘unhealthy’ for dogs. In fact it is an excellent source of protein and calcium for dogs that are able to tolerate it.
First aid and relief for lactose intolerance in dogs.
The best rule of thumb in detecting if your dog is lactose intolerant is simply to limit or discontinue feeding of the particular dairy produce to help your dog recover. While limiting is the immediate relief, moderation is the key to health in in the intake of lactose replenishing food.
Integrating protein and calcium rich dog treats.
Since most of our pets are no longer pups thriving on their mom’s breast milk for their natural healthy supply of protein and calcium needs. A brilliant way to integrate protein and calcium rich milk and dairy products in your pets’ diet is through giving them protein rich dog treats from time to time. MILKOTEIN is unique all natural dog treat with the highest level of protein than any other products in the market today.
Milkotein is made from the hard variety of yak’s milk called Chhurpi. During the process of making the Chhurpi cheese, most of the lactose of the milk were retained and strained away on the whey residue of the cheese during the coagulation process. The resulting cheese is virtually lactose-free and therefore will not pose indigestion and lactose intolerance to your dog.
