How can I tell if my dog is sick??

Sometimes a dog cough sounds worse than it really is. Tricky, on the other hand, are symptoms that we don't really notice. That could z.B. be a regular hiccup or frequent belching. If your dog does not want to eat or has been vomiting – these could be signs of an illness. To observe its dog is very important thereby. Above all, dogs, are professionals in hiding diseases.

Dog owners often feel guilty when the vet makes his diagnosis, even though their dog hasn't behaved much differently than usual. It is only in retrospect that we notice minor changes. Sometimes symptoms turn out to be harmless. The trip to the vet was not necessary. But it is better to have it tested twice than once too little!

The following signs and symptoms could indicate a disease: (Not all symptoms and causes listed here are complete and in no case replace the veterinarian!)

Bites and cuts should always be treated by a veterinarian. Since the dog will constantly lick the wound, it can not heal well. A first aid course for dogs is an important step.

First aid courses are offered by some veterinarians as seminars – it's worth it!
