Dog Health What You Can Do
In order to keep your dog healthy you might want to consider a
preventive medicine program for your dog. It allows you to prevent a disease or
an illness from harming your dog and it can also cut down on veterinary
expenses. You should give your dog a weekly exam and take your dog to the
veterinarian's office for an annual exam. A thorough annual dog health exam at
the veterinarian's office is worth the expense.
A good veterinarian
will do much more than just give your dog his vaccinations. He will typically
perform a series of palpitations on your dog to check to see if the internal
organs feel healthy and this also gives him an opportunity to check for lumps
that could be cancerous. The annual check up will also provide your
veterinarian with an opportunity to check his eyes and ears as well as listen
to his heart. An annual dog health exam is especially important as your dog
becomes older. Its a good idea to give your veterinarian the opportunity
to find a health problem early in order to prevent it from becoming a serious
Vaccinations for Your Dog
Vaccinations are also very
important in order to prevent disease and illnesses from seriously affecting
your dog. Vaccinations can help to prevent your dog from acquiring diseases
such as rabies, distemper, parvovirus, leptospirosis, para influenza as well as
viral hepatitis, corona virus and kennel cough. You might also want to ask your
veterinarian if a vaccination for Lyme disease would be beneficial for your
Exam at Home
There is also an easy to do dog health exam
at home that you can perform. Check to see if his skin has the healthy gray
white appearance. If his skin is pink or perhaps red he probably has an
inflammation problem. Also a large amount of dandruff in his fur is an
unhealthy condition for your dog. Brush your dog's hair with your fingers and
then check the smell on your fingers. If your fingers smell rancid or have a
fishy smell to them this is an indication that your dog has a health problem.
During the dog health exam, check the inside of his eyelids for any redness or
irritation and look inside of his ears to check for wax deposits. Smell in your
dog's ears in order to check for foul smells.
Look into his mouth and
check for a red line along the roots of his teeth. During the dog health exam
take a good look at all of his teeth and see if any of them have become brown
and also check to see if he has very foul breath which can be an indication of
a health problem. Don't allow your dog to become overweight because obesity can
lead to health problems and it can also shorten his life. To keep your dog in
good health it is important to give him a weekly dog health exam at home and an
annual exam at the veterinarian's office.
