How to take care of your dog’s health

Seeing a healthy, happy dog is probably the nicest feeling for any canine caregiver. Nothing pleases you as much as knowing that your pet is doing well and nothing is wrong with him. But how can you be sure that you care for your four-legged in the best possible way? If you want to properly take care of the health of the dog, you need to remember a few key tips.

Dogs often try to communicate to us that something is hurting them. They do it in their own canine way, which unfortunately very often can be left out by us. Therefore, in addition to taking care of the health of your pet, you also need to observe his daily behavior.

How a dog turns out to be healthy

Are you wondering what proves that your pet is fully healthy? The health and well-being of the dog consists of several factors:

– high energy level,

– desire to play,

– good appetite,

– no sleep problems.

If you know your four-legged well, then you are certainly able to realize that its energy level is lower than usual. Or perhaps, favorite toy no longer enjoys as always.

It is important that you do not compare your dog with other four-legged, but only with his own behavior. Not every dog has the same energy or desire to play. Do not be guided by the behavior of other dogs, but by the typical disposition of your pet.

I want to take care of health of the dog

Surely each of us wants to take care of his four-legged friend as best as possible. However, we do not always have full knowledge of how to get into this matter. There’s nothing wrong with that. Each of us once began our adventure as a canine caregiver. So do I.

First of all, do not be afraid to ask for help and for advice from more experienced dog lovers. It guarantees you that they will be happy to share their experiences with you. That’s why I’m here for you and I want to tell you how to take care of your dog’s health.

Constant control of veterinarian

I think the basis in taking care of your dog’s health is constant contact with the veterinarian. Professional care of a specialized person is the most important thing if you want to make sure that your pet is doing well. Therefore, at least once a year, take the dog to the veterinarian for a check-up visit.

It is worth checking whether the dog has all the current vaccinations, or whether it should be deworming. It is also a good time to ask about any issues of concern to us related to the health of the dog.

When visiting the veterinarian, also ask for a check on the dentition of the pooch. Healthy teeth are the basis in taking care of our four-legged friend. During the period of occurrence of ticks, ask for an appropriate form of protection to fit your dog against these parasites.

Dog diet of your doggy

It is impossible to hide that a balanced diet is the key to health, both for us and for our four-legged. How we nourish our pet largely depends on its condition, well-being, strength and energy.

Therefore, if you are wondering how to take care of the health of the dog, pay attention first of all to its diet. The dog’s diet should be fully thought out, balanced, rich in all the necessary vitamins and minerals. Preparing such a menu for a dog is not difficult.

However, it is necessary to remember that the dog’s body has different needs than the human body. For full health needs nutrients other than for us.

If you want to know what healthy dog diet should look like, I refer you to the link entry where I explain this issue in detail. There you will find all the information that will help you to create a balanced menu for your four-legged friend.

Dog’s physical activity

You certainly know well the saying that in a healthy body is a healthy spirit. The physical activity of your dog should not be limited to daily walks and occasional fun in the park. Taking care of the good condition of our dog is much more than that.

The intensity of your exercises is matched by what form your pet is in at any given time. I recommend you to run with a dog together, even if it would be a very short and slow run. If the condition of your dog leaves much to be desired, you can try alternating walking and brisk jogging.
My pet loves to overcome all sorts of obstacles. Especially for him I create small obstacle tracks, at the end of which there is always a reward in the form of a favorite treat. It is a perfect combination of fun and physical activity.

Another form of active spending time with the dog is playing together, which requires more involvement from the dog. An example would be playing with a frisbee or also wrestling. From my experience, I can recommend you a toy for dragging with a four-legged in the form of a solid and durable BULLET.

We have our rope toy from the Bowl&Bone Republic brand. In addition to the very aesthetic appearance, I cannot  fail to mention the extremely solid performance. Most of my dog’s toys are almost completely destroyed in a fairly short time. BULLET has been serving us for a long time and I can safely say that it will certainly stay with us for even longer.

Taking care of dog’s physical appearance

Even a very healthy and clogged dog will not look like this when you neglect his external appearance. Although there is so much talk about the fact that you should take care of health first of all from the inside, we must not forget to take care of the outer layer as well.

Regular bathing, brushing hair or trimming claws are just some of the dog’s mandatory care activities. What else should you pay attention to? Unfortunately, very often we forget about regular inspection of the ears of dogs. This is especially true for those breeds that by nature have their floppy ears.

We should also control the dog’s eyes. Some breeds are characterized by the fact that the eyes excessively tear. Any hygienic treatment of the dog should be performed systematically. Cosmetics should be selected according to the type of hair of the dog and his personal needs.

I advise against bathing a dog using cosmetics designed for humans. They are not tested for use on dog hair, so we cannot predict how the pet’s body will react to such a cosmetic. Poorly selected products can cause an allergic reaction of the four-legged.

5. Time to relax with your doggy

Everyone needs a moment of rest and relaxation. This allows you to maintain a healthy balance in life and avoid over-stimulation. Although maintaining good health requires physical activity from our dogs, we must not forget about rest and relaxation.

Your dog also needs time just for himself, a moment to recover. Allow the dog a little real laziness. This will have a very positive effect on its energy level, it will allow to recharge the batteries so that he will be more happy to enter into each subsequent day.

How to take care of your dog’s health without being ober-cared

Taking care of the dog’s health is very important. It is up to us to take care of our four-legged and provide it with the best possible living conditions. You cannot  fall into exaggeration, thus becoming an over-caring for dog. Keeping a dog under the shade can be more hurtful to him than you think.

Let him explore and enjoy life. The feeling of happiness and love has a great impact on the health of the pet. Definitely better than excessive care, which can keep the dog under the shade be a nuisance to him.

And how do you care about the health of your dog? Maybe you have your own ways to share with me?
