Did you know that cats are exceptionally good at hiding their illnesses? It's true. Watch this video and learn more as Dr. Andy Roark discusses why it is so critical to pay attention to your cat's habits and behavior!
Every dog owner is well-acquainted with the infamous “wet dog stink.” But for those of us more scientifically minded, the question arises—where does that smell come from?
The American Chemical Society has the answer. In this newly released video, part of the organization’s “Reactions” series, the chemistry behind the smell of wet dog is revealed. In short, it’s a combination of yeast and bacteria microorganisms that collect on your dog’s skin and in the coat. When mixed with water, the molecules are released, creating that stinky stench we know so well.
The video also discussed other olfactory-related mysteries surrounding dogs, like their acute ability to smell, why kibble is stinky to us but appealing to them, and the reason not picking up your dog’s poop can affect your health.
