My name is Jessica Smith & I am 22 years old. I've just finished college after studying for two years doing a level 5 and level 6 course in Animal Care 2017 - 2020. Part of my course covered dog grooming and I was fortunate enough to get plenty of hands on experience as we groomed members of the public's dogs. I have also studied as part of my course Animal Health, Nutrition & General Care. I am currently looking for paid work part time or full time in a dog grooming environment in the Dublin area. I am aware that it can be very difficult to find paid work & would be willing to offer my services as an Intern/Trainee full or part time in order to gain more experience. I am experienced in full brush out (coat assessment), bathing, fluff drying & am capable of fully clipping off a coat. I'm still learning face trims but am keen to master this. As part of my course I secured Work Experience for 5 weeks with Park n Bark Professional Dog Groomers in Nutgrove & feel I really flourished under their guidance & expertise. Park n Bark offered me paid work in their Nutgrove Studio last Christmas 2019 which I was thrilled with & feel I really hit the ground running at one of the busiest times of years for dog groomers. I loved every second of it & it really helped me build my confidence. I would love to work as a dog groomer as this is the career that I have chosen for my future and someday have my own business. I'm a hard worker and love working with dogs, they are my passion. My mobile number is 0851810459 & I very much look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
On warm days in late summer until the first frosts of winter, they climb up long grass and bushes waiting for something warm-blooded to pass! When they get the chance they jump on and swarm over the mammal’s body to find an area where the skin is thinnest, before sinking their hooked fangs in. They feed by injecting a fluid into the deeper layers of the skin. This liquefies the surrounding cells and the resulting ‘goo’ is sucked back into the mite. They will feed for 2 – 3 days, enlarging in size from 0.2mm to 0.6mm as they do so. They can just be seen by the naked eye as orange dots. After feeding they drop to the ground where they develop into adults via a nymph stage.
The mites tend to principally affect cats, although humans, rabbits and dogs can also get them. They can cause very few problems, but sadly a lot of animals become allergic to the fluid injected by the mite, resulting in reddening and crusting of the skin. Often the animal will then scratch at the mites, worsening the inflammation and introducing bacterial infection.
The mites tend to attach just in front of the ears, at the base of the ear flap or between the toes. Less frequently the chin, lips, armpits and tummy can suffer.Alternative approach to dealing with Harvest Mites
In Ireland harvest mites are a problem mid/end July to mid September. Some dogs can have a large burden and not seem to be bothered while some dogs only have a couple and are 3 legged lame. When the mites bite the skin they inject tiny bits of acid like substance to create a reaction from the dogs body . Every year these mites cause untold pain and discomfort to our furry friends but the chemicals that we have traditionally used can be harmful to the body also in recent years also seemed very ineffective .
Here's a more natural approach to dealing with harvest mites.
Wash their digestive juice off skin with organic dish washing up liquid and then put on a barrier cream made of shaking Aloe vera gel and almond oil together in a bottle with a drop each of peppermint, tea tree, Neem and lavender Essential oil .
Rub some cream between toes, feet and lower legs these are the main areas dogs seem to be affected but I also apply to ares the dog is chewing or if i feel the wee scabs often accompanying the mites.
