info Dog Health Care – Give Your Dog A Happy, Healthy & Pain-Free Life

Ask any pet owner and they will tell you that your dogs health problems should get the same attention as we give to our health problems. Our dogs can face the same illnesses that we do, such as arthritis, depression, diabetes, kidney infection or disease, hepatitis, prostate or liver disorders, and even cancer. That’s in addition to unique dogs’ health problems like heartworm and kennel cough, to name just a few. Throw into that combination of dogs’ health problems, fleas, and ticks and you can quickly see what your dog can face.
Have you ever found yourself thinking, “I wish my dog could just tell me what’s wrong?” You will be happy to know that they do often tell us, maybe not in words, but in their behavior and appearance. You have to put your doggy doctor’s hat on and be observant of your dog’s health because early detection of a dog’s health problem can mean that medical treatments are usually simpler, less expensive and more successful.
Good dog’s health care requires watching for behavioral changes like loss of energy, appetite, or elimination problems. Examine your dog’s eyes, they should be bright and clear, in older dogs the lens may be pale. Although your dog’s nose should be moist and cool most of the time, a dry warm nose does not always mean fever. Feel your dog’s body and limbs for lumps or soreness. Watch that his bowel movements are regular and well-formed and his urine is clear. Your dog’s coat is shiny and sheds normally.
