Canine Dog Health
We love our dogs - they are part of the family and we often treat them as we would the younger child of the family. But just like children our dogs occasionally become sick and we need to be aware of some of the common canine dog health problems. An interesting but sober fact is that 85% of dogs visit an animal doctor in a year. We can help to prevent this by first ensuring that puppies are given adequate and appropriate vaccinations to assist in boosting their immunity to the most common canine health problems.
Canine Dog Health - Information and Care Checklist
As the saying goes prevention is better than cure and detecting early signs of any potential dog health problems will obviously help to ensure the well being of your dog or puppy. Basic observation of a dog or puppy will alert its owner to changes in the normal behavior of the dog and that something is amiss. A straightforward check of the dog will help to confirm any suspicions of ill health. We have therefore provided a simple Dog Health Care Checklist to assist in this process whenever you have worries or concerns about your dog or puppys health. This section also provides recommendations for a Dog First Aid Kit.
Canine Dog Health Questions
Owners have various Dog Health questions - some of which may be answered by following the process detailed in the Dog Health Care Checklist. Other Dog Health Questions often arise following a visit to the Veterinary Surgeon and the Vets subsequent diagnosis. This situation frequently occurs as the attention of the owner is focussed on the dog as opposed to the Veterinary Surgeon. The owner therefore often has a variety of Dog Health questions that they need answers to. We have therefore identified the most common Dog Health Issues and included these in an Encyclopaedia of Common Canine Dog Health Problems. We hope that this will help in answering a range of common Canine Dog Health Questions.
