How to distinguish a sick dog from a healthy

Unfortunately, if the dog is not feeling well, she cannot tell us about it. And the task of the responsible owners is proper care, taking care of their pet and carefully monitoring it, so that in case of possible ailments, symptoms are noticed on time and treatment is scheduled on time.
Of course, it is not difficult to detect bruises, fractures, cuts, burns and other external injuries in a dog – many injuries are visible to the naked eye, and if you have a long-haired dog, make it a rule to periodically examine her skin for possible damage.

Basic rules for feeding a dog

Proper, nutritious nutrition is the key to the health of your dog, and it is the unbalanced diet that is the root of most ailments. If the dog does not eat well, its body does not receive the elements necessary for normal functioning, it is weakened and vulnerable to various diseases. While a well-nourished dog is always full of strength and active, it has strong immunity, excellent metabolism, healthy teeth, ears, hair and skin, it practically does not need complex care, since a healthy body naturally forms a well-groomed appearance.
The concept of “proper nutrition” includes not only a high-quality balanced feed, but also the optimal portion size, and the optimal daily amount of feedings, as well as the time and place of feeding.

Unfortunately, not all owners know that you need to feed the dog after a walk, and in no case before it, because for comfortable digestion, the dog needs peace, not active games.

The feed plate should be comfortable and preferably placed not on the bare floor, but on a special stand. Continue reading
