HOW TO KEEP YOUR PET DOG SAFE AND HEALTHY

  • For most of us pet owners, our dogs are like
    family members, and so naturally we want to do
    our best to keep them safe and healthy. There are
    many things you can do as a responsible pet
    parent to ensure that your pooch is fighting fit
    and happy, and here are just a few tips and
    pointers
  • Check your pooch every dayWhile we see our pet
    dogs every day, we often dont take the time or
    simply forget to give them a quick visual check
    every day. Dogs are just as vulnerable to picking
    up injuries or illnesses as we are, so being
    observant can help you to spot a problem before
    it gets too serious.

  • Spot behavioural changesEach dog may have a
    different way of showing you that they are in
    pain or suffering from something, so if you
    notice that there are any behavioural changes in
    your dog, monitor them closely, and seek a vets
    opinion as soon as possible if you feel it
    necessary.
  • Avoid human medicinesMedicines prescribed for
    humans should never be used on your dog use only
    medications and treatments that a vet has
    prescribed and remember that some everyday items
    that most homes have in them, can be poisonous to
    dogs, so its a good idea to keep them as far
    away from your pets as possible.

  • Dont neglect your dogs pearly whitesOur pets
    teeth are as prone to a build up of plaque or to
    infection, as ours are, so try to check them
    regularly and seek treatment if anything looks
    suspicious within your dogs mouth. If your pooch
    allows it, you can try brushing their teeth and
    gums pet toothbrushes are widely available and
    very effective at minimizing plaque and keeping
    gums healthy.
  • Groom regularlyNot only is grooming your dog
    usually a pleasant experience for both parties,
    but it can help you to spot any problems with
    your dogs coat or other body parts. It will also
    help to reduce dander that has a habit of
    attaching itself to every available surface!

5
  • Pamper your elderly petsOlder dogs will often
    need special care, such as less exercise, a
    special diet and a nice, comfy place to sleep. If
    your pet is showing signs of old age, try to
    pamper them a little more and allow them plenty
    of rest and minimize their stress levels as much
    as you can.
  • Stay up to date with vaccinationsYour dog should
    at the very least, have an annual check up with a
    qualified veterinarian, and these are great
    opportunities to ask about vaccinations and
    parasite treatments. Many good vets will offer
    healthcare packages that run alongside your pet
    insurance, helping to minimize the cost of
    check-ups and treatments.

  • Neuter, or de-sex your dogDogs that are not
    intended to be used for breeding purposes, should
    always be neutered to prevent unwanted litters,
    and to help prevent them getting certain types of
    cancers and illnesses.
  • Microchipping is now the lawIf your dog gets
    itself lost, ensure that it can easily be
    identified and returned to you by having it wear
    an identification collar and by getting it
    microchipped. A collar with contact details on is
    now mandatory along with microchipping, so not
    only will you be helping to keep your pet safe,
    but youll be staying on the right side of the
    law, too.

  • While these tips are always a good idea to
    follow, you mustnt hesitate to seek professional
    advice or guidance about your dogs safety or
    health if you are at all concerned about their
    welfare.
