Treating the Pet
First step for flea control is to eliminate the breeding site. According to one flea research expert, the Cat Flea adult is “a permanent ecto-parasite on pets”, meaning it does not jump on and off the pet, but stays on board, hidden in the dense fur. It only gets off as an adult flea if it is forced off by your brushing or the dog’s chewing.

There are many materials now available to use on the pet, and the best ones (Petcor Flea Spray) will affect not only the adult fleas, but also the eggs that they lay. These contain a growth regulator that kills the eggs that come in contact with the chemical. This same chemical can be applied to your carpets and furniture and it keeps the flea larvae ever from becoming biting adults. There is, of course, also regular bathing of the pets, possibly with a flea shampoo that can definitely be an effective pest control.

“Ultrasonic” flea collars, that claim to set up “flea free” zones around your pets do not work in any way, shape or form. Dozens of studies around the world at several universities (including U of Florida) have come to that same conclusion.

Ferry Authorities Scrutinise Pet Passport for Travel


Travelling with Pets by ferries is not allowed on all routes, only few routes are made available to take pets to sea, air and train routes in the UK. Here is a great news for pet owners who cannot leave their pets whilst they’re on travel to new places. People can take their pets onboard across the sea over the Dover to Dunkerque route now with great convenience and comfort.

Pets can now travel by Ferries to france , provided they follow the guidelines drawn by DEFRA for pets. Stringent laws have been implemented for pets that are moving in and out of the UK. Although the rules seem to be tough it’s good for the rules to be put in implementation, just to keep environment safe and healthy and not allowing people to contract dreadful diseases such as rabies. Rabies are spread across the environment through pets and when pets bite people they get contracted with rabies.

Small adjustments are made for the pets onboard, kernels are provided in the ferry to make place for pets and to keep them safe and intact onboard. Pet owners will have to just pay an additional fee of 30 pounds and it’s mandatory on ferries taking into account passengers safety.

Although, cross channel ferries on the route of Dover to Dunkerque allow no foot passengers on the other hand, Dover to Calais ferries do allow foot passengers along with car passengers. It’s made mandatory for pet owners will be held totally responsible for care and concern of pets onboard. Pets are not allowed to move around onboard.

Infectious diseases like rabies should be kept in control so as to make the UK a safer place to live and until a strict laws are not put in practice it’s next to impossible to control such diseases. Hence, PET schemes have been designed by DEFRA for keeping a check on the pet health and making pet owners more consciously responsible in raising pets.

The answer is made clear to all with simple explanations. To keep the UK safer place for all to live. This could be possible only when pet owners follow a discipline. Pet vaccination is highly necessary and without which pet owners are not allowed to take pets out of country. Vets are kept in-charge of, in taking care of pets health conditions. Separate vaccination doctors are allotted for such activities. Pets which have left country and on return should be in good health condition and they will have to undergo all precautionary measures, in the PET scheme.

As a part of the scheme, pet will have to fulfil following facts. Pets should hold a vaccination certificate before leaving the UK. In order to have an easy entry and safe passage the pet will have to make a re-entry into the country within six months time. If in case, pet returns to the UK after a span of six months, it’s made mandatory to get the vaccination procedures done thoroughly without fail. Failing to which, pets will not be allowed and they will be forcefully put into quarantine for next six months on observation. Alas, you’ll be forced to depart your pets mercilessly.

The Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines all share the honor of receiving basic challenge coins upon graduation from basic training. They are somewhat different from ones that are for sale as they have no special frills. They signify training that has just been accomplished.

Navy Seal coins, a Texas challenge coin which is a star within a circle and several other types are just a small portion of the challenge coins that you may see today.

They were made for the B-52 tail gunners, which is not in existence today. So finding a challenge coins of this magnitude would be a real find if you are a collector.
