Keeping Your Dog Healthy
Many people consider their dog their best friend, and why shouldn’t they? Our dogs greet us at the door as though they haven’t seen us in years, even if we’ve only been gone ten minutes. They put up with our moods – good, bad, and in-between – and they tolerate our bad habits. So, it’s natural that you’d want to keep your dog around for as long as possible. So, how do you do that?
First and probably most important of all, unless you’re planning to breed your dog, you should look into spaying or neutering your pet. Every year, too many unwanted pets and accidental litters have to be put down. As a responsible pet owner, it is your duty to help control this practice on your end.
The thing that causes your dog the most misery by far is the common flea. If your dog has fleas – you know it! He’s miserable – biting and scratching, often to the point of whining in pain. Fleas should be treated right away. There are so many excellent options available for flea treatment – sprays, collars, lotions, ointments, baths, powders – the choice is virtually limitless!
Did you know that dogs are susceptible to about sixty different types of diseases? Twenty of those diseases are transmittable to humans. To help protect your dog (and yourself) against these diseases, make sure your dog is protected by vaccination. These vaccines also have to have boosters. However, discuss the concept of yearly boosters with your veterinarian. Many vets believe yearly boosters are unnecessary and they can actually cause disease.
Routine grooming and daily exercise are a must for any dog to make your dog look its very best, and does wonders for the dog’s mental and physical health. Exercise, like a daily walk, will help keep your dog physically fit.
You should include routine checks on your dog, such as examining his hair and skin for dandruff and his mouth and teeth for dental problems and bad breath. Your dog’s behavior is also an important thing to check for. If your dog seems out of the ordinary, or you feel the slightest bit worried, your vet is the person to see. Only your vet will be able to give your dog a proper check-up, and calm your fears.
You love your dog. Caring for him properly and ensuring his health is just another way showing him just how much.
