Help us help others

Pet owners in Denmark love their animals. They shall not want for anything. That’s why it is quite common that we have collected a lot of “equipment” during the life of our pets. That “equipment” may at some point no longer be of use to us. Our pets outgrow their harnesses, they do no longer play with certain toys, they get new dog baskets etc. The “old” items are not in use anymore.

These items may be in perfect order but we are used to throwing away things we no longer need. “Snout To Snout” wishes to change that approach and put them to good use, so that animals all over the world can benefit from them.

When we say goodbye!

A different scenario unfolds the day we say goodbye to a beloved pet.

Often there will be bowls, harnesses, leashes, toys and more left over from a long life. Throwing these items away seems wrong, as they represent fond memories. Some items can be saved, of course, but in many cases it is nice to start afresh.

Project “fra snude til snude” helps passing on used items. We continuously support hot spots, such as animal shelters in Denmark and abroad, and we give donations to projects that need help. We cannot always know, when that happens.

Where can I leave my things?

We are collecting for projects supporting animals in need, so they can benefit from what surplus we have. We are collecting at Dyreklinikken Artemis, Gersonsvej 2, 2900 Hellerup, and at Fuglebjergvej 9, 3400 Hillerød.

Do you want to help?

Please get in touch through the facebook page, if you would like to be a pick-up point.

Do you have a project in need of help?

If you have an association or a project that needs help, send us a message and you will be put on our list of projects. Our opportunity to help depends on how many donations we are in possession of. “From one pet to anothert” is a continuous event.

Who is behind the project?

Veterinarian Lise Rovsing runs the project with the support from former Special Forces Soldier Thomas Rathsack. Through our network we wish to put focus on helping animals in need by utilising existing resources.

“From one pet to another” has already helped:

  • We have shipped donations to an animal shelter In Rumania
  • We have shipped a huge donation to help homeless dogs
  • In December 2017 we have send money to buy forage for a shelter in remote Russia

The advice that will save your dogs life!

What do I do, if my dog eats a bone from a fish or a piece of glass?

The dog owner will most likely see it happen and it is too late: the dog has eaten its catch!

What do you do?

Give the dogs some canned asparagus. Those who are white coloured and slippery.

The asparagus will wrap them self around the object in the stomach.

Thereby the stomach and intestines are projected, and won’t be damaged by the foreign object.

The foreign object will pass through the digestive system without damaging the dog.

Always visit the vets if your dog is not well!

Take good care of your dog in the cold!

Are you the owner of a puppy or a senior dog?

Then you should be particularly aware that the cold temperatures and the gusty wind could create discomfort for your dog.

You see, our pets do also feel the cold!

Are you in doubt, whether your dog should wear a coat when the temperature drops?

YES, it should.

Our pets are used to being indoors in a lovely heated home. The dog is domesticated and does no longer live outside in natural temperatures. The dog’s fur does therefore no longer function as if it belonged to a wolf, wandering around in the woods!!

The undercoat does seldom develop so that it can keep the dog warm when the cold bites.

Who needs a coat?

If we look solely at different breeds, the flat coated and thinly furred dogs need a coat.

That goes for breeds like Whippets, Beagles, French Bulldogs, and Boxers. Other breeds with no undercoat, such as Poodles, Bichons, Shih Tzus, Yorkshire Terriers etc. also need to wear a coat.

Tiny breeds too – like Chihuahuas, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, and Dachshunds need that extra layer to keep them warm.

Senior dogs tend to have osteoarthritis and will benefit from a little extra warmth.

Do you have a puppy; it HAS to wear a coat outside. And if your dog is somehow ill, it too needs to be kept from being cold.

But my dog isn’t cold, is it?

Many clients tell us that it’s not their impression that their dog is cold. Maybe it shivers slightly, but it doesn’t seem cold.

Physiologically a larger animal loses less warmth than the smaller one.

This means that the amount of generated heat the animal produces and the amount it loses is more favourable to the larger animal. Which is why smaller tend to get colder.

If the dog shivers, it suffers from hypothermia. The body gets cold and the muscles tremble to generate heat. This signals to the brains that the dog should look for somewhere warm.

As a dog owner you should always react if your dog begins to shiver.

Denmark and a lot of other countries are both cold and windy. Even though the temperature is not particularly low, a cool gust can be reason enough to bring out your dog coat!

Dressing your dog in a coat when it is cold is by no means the same at dressing it up.

It is a sign of affection and caring for your best friend 🙂

Welcome to my world: ALL about our pets

This side you will get a unique insight in the amazing universe that surrounds our animals. I work as a veterinarian on a small animal clinic in Copenhagen, and it is the best work ever, and I love my daily life.

I hope my page will make life better for animals. The more knowledge we humans acquire, on how to interact and treat our pets the right way, the better life we can provide for our beloved animals.

When you have a pet, you experience many emotions: laughter, happiness, frustration and the anxiety about having to say goodbye someday. When you acquire a pet you automatically know a grief will follow, because their life come to an end one day.  This page takes up the tough topics on the final journey to the stars.

To have a pet that’s considered healthy is more than just ‘NOT being sick with a clinical illness’. To be healthy is a matter of balance:  physical and mental health shall both be in place. The animal shall be comfortable in their surroundings.

On my page you will explore:

  • Knowledge that will enlightening you on diseases, wellness and animal behaviour.
  • We go close to the difficult topic: when is the right time to say good bye to your pets (euthanasia).
  • A debate about the way society treats animals. Animal welfare are many things, and all animals shall be treated decent and with respect.
  • Stories from the daily life as a veterinarian.
  • A bunch of pictures of animals.

Remember: if you ever are in doubt about you animal’s health – please GO to a veterinarian. NO online advice can replace a consultation with a doctor, if you think you animal is sick!
