What is Doganthropy?
Doganthropy refers to helping dogs in need. It is a unique system on DogHeirs.com that empowers human-dog teams to help dogs in need.
How Does Doganthropy Work?
DogHeirs members join and become Doganthropists. They display a “Click to Help” button on their dog’s profile that supporters are able to click on once every day for free. Each click is transformed, by sponsors, into aid for dogs. Sponsors contribute to the DogHeirs Community Fund, which provides grants to not-for-profit organizations that work to help dogs in need.
The more you click the greater the contribution so be sure to visit everyday and click on the “Click to Help” button located on any Doganthropist’s profile.

The use of food grade diatomaceous earth as a natural pest control product is quickly becoming popular, with many people drawn to DE due to the fact that it is safe and natural. In order for the product to effectively kill insects, they must come in contact with it. When they crawl across the DE, the insect’s outer shell is lacerated by the sharp particles of the diatomaceous earth and the powdery substance dehydrates and kills them. In fact, the calcium bentonite that is contained in Red Lake Earth contributes to this desiccation process.
While it is not registered as a pest control product, many people use Red Lake Earth for this purpose. They sprinkle the product in any areas where pests may be, in order to kill them. However, in her book, Going Green Using Diatomaceous Earth How To Tips, Tui Rose discusses the use of diatomaceous earth as an insect repellant.

For many years antibiotics have been used freely in animal feed, not only for medical purposes but also as a growth stimulant.
However, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) believes that the overuse of common antibiotics in animal feed is endangering human health. This overuse may minimize the effectiveness of these drugs in humans and, as predicted by the FDA, has created superbugs that are resistant to antibiotics.
In the past the FDA began proceedings to ban certain antibiotics however, the process was never completed. Now a federal judge has ordered that the FDA withdraw approval for the use of common antibiotics, such as penicillin and tetracycline (which are often used to promote growth in animals), in animal feed.
Non-therapeutic use of antibiotics will be withdrawn unless the companies that manufacture the drugs are able to prove that their use is safe. If these companies are able to provide evidence suggesting that the use of antibiotics for these purposes is safe then the ban will not be placed.
This ruling will not affect the use of antibiotics in animal feed for disease prevention.
