How Jamaican Dog owners can spot Canine Heart attack

If you are a true pet lover and not someone who uses you pet to get women (Deer, 2017, January 4) this blog article is for you. It’s quite possible that your dog may experience a heart attack.


The first sign of which may be your dog collapsing suddenly! So what is Canine Heart attack?

Canine Heart attack – Sleeping Dogs may have experienced a Heart Attack

In a nutshell, a heart attack or myocardial infarction (Vetary, 2017) happens when blood cannot reach the heart muscle or myocardium.  This causes the heart muscle to die and the affected heart chamber can no longer effectively pump blood. Blood clot or thrombus within the blood vessels or heart is a common cause of heart attacks.

Canine heart attacks have been seen in all breeds and are very rare. Heart attacks require emergency medical attention and yes, as in humans, sudden death is certain. Also DO NOT PERFORM CPR on Dogs; their Physiology is far different from that of humans!!!

There is little warning for a heart attack event; collapse may be the first symptom observed.

However, if you bond with your dog regularly, you should be able to spot these signs:

  • Slight fever (over 103° Fahrenheit/39.4° Celsius)
  • Vomiting Panting/abnormal breathing
  • Increased heart rate
  • Lethargy
  • Head tilt
  • Confusion/Anxiety
  • Immobility
  • Rigidity
  • Seizure
  • Collapse
  • Sudden death

Please note that for large breeds, anything over 100 beats per minute is a sure sign of a hypertensive dog that has a risk profile for a heart attack. Ditto too for small breeds, for who 140 beats per minute is way too much. So what causes heart attack in dogs?

Causes of Canine Heart attack – Diet and Genetics and the Veterinarian can help

The causes of Heart Attack in Dogs are varied but the causes are the same as in humans: diet and genetics. The conditions listed below are evidence of this:

  • Tumor
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Nephrotic Syndrome
  • Bacterial infection
  • Vasculitis
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Coronary artery disease

Tumor masses growing on or around the heart vasculature can block blood flow to the heart muscle. In the case of Hypothyroidism, the Thyroid gland does not produce thyroxine hormone – responsible for converting food to fuel for the body.

Nephrotic Syndrome is damage results in loss of protein involved in preventing blood clot formation. Bacterial infection can lead to inflammation and blockage of blood flow to the heart muscle. Atherosclerosis is due to plaque buildup and weakens the walls of the arteries, causing arteries to rupture. Coronary artery disease is extremely rare in dogs and occurs only with severe hypothyroidism and associated high serum cholesterol levels.

So if your dog is having a Heart Attack, get him comfy, out of the sunlight and call your local veterinarian.

How Jamaican can Factory or RSIM Unlock their smartphones

Factory Unlocking your Android smartphone (Deer, 2013, August 10) or Apple iPhone (Deer, 2014, March 1) has never been easier.

There are now so many reputable unlocking websites out there; all you need is a Scotia or CIBC VISA Debit card or Paypal account and enough cash to pay to Factory unlock your smartphone via one of these websites:

Alternatively, you can always use a RSIM Unlock, which is far easier as you can buy an RSIM for as little as US$4 on Ebay. The RSIM is basically a physical unlocking method that involves a chipset that mates with your SIM, making your SIM behave like the Network that the phone was originally locked to and thus allowing the phone to work without Factory unlock.

Check out the video below which explains how this hardware unlocking method works.

Sharing is caring so share this with as many of your friends as you can.

How Kingston Call Center is creating the Jamaican Tele-commuting Workplace

English is the primary language of Jamaica. Use in schools (Deer, 2016, June 1), most call centers recruit agents who speak English accurately, clearly and without an accent. Kingston Call Centre is no exception to this rule, with offices located in Kingston and in rural Jamaica, at Bog Walk in the parish of St. Catherine.

Located some 30 miles west of Kingston, the company is interested in:

  • Inbound
  • Outbound
  • Voice
  • Non-voice campaigns

As a part of their Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) section, we also do:

  • Autocad drafting
  • Data Entry

But what is most fascinating is that the majority of their agents are not located in a single building – they are scattered across Jamaica in different locations.

Kingston Call Centre – Telecommuting work for CSA

The company presently utilizes a cloud based predictive dialer for inbound and outbound call centre campaigns along with suitable cloud base Customer Relations Management (CRM) systems. Agents work in office based environments where the outsourced office function requires an office equipped with necessary office equipment.

However, most agents are encouraged to work from home provided they have the following:

  • Required reliable computer
  • Broadband internet connection
  • Quiet office-like environment at home or place of their choosing

Effectively this makes Kingston Call Centre a Tele-Commuting workplace (Deer, 2011, May 14) with workers having the option to work at their call centers or work at home.

So what kinds of BPO campaigns can Kingston Call Centre provide?

Kingston Call Centre – Non-Voice BPO work and Autocad drawings and alterations

Kingston Call Centre usually absorbs the cost of campaign telephone calls using their VOIP dialing facility, including the costs associated with the provision of Toll Free Numbers (TFN). Kingston Call Centre is interested in outsourcing both Voice and Non-Voice campaigns.

For Non-Voice campaigns they can provide:

  • Excellent document conversion
  • Spell checking
  • Document reformatting
  • Data entry
  • Form filling

Kingston Call Centre also does drawings and alterations work using Autocad as follows:

  • Electrical
  • Architectural
  • Telecommunication

For Voice Campaigns, agents have experience with outbound USA/EST appointment setting and inbound customer service campaigns. Our agents are experienced and trained as call centre workers for both office and home operation. Each campaign has different requirements and Labour rates per seat per hour are negotiable.

So what are you waiting for? Call Kingston Call Centre and let us handle all of your Inbound and Outbound Voice and non-Voice BPO Campaigns. Big or small, Kingston Call Centre does it all
