If you currently have a pet, then you will understand
the need to make sure it is healthy and happy. What most people arent aware
of, when it comes to their pets, they still have the base instincts that their
One of those instincts was to hide any signs of
weakness in order to survive. Because of this instinct to hide weakness, your
pet will more than likely not show signs of it feeling bad unless there is no
way of hiding those symptoms. This will mean that you will have to keep a close
eye for certain symptoms to keep your pet healthy.
One of the most common signs that your pet isnt
feeling good is lethargy. If you find that your pet is lying around a lot and
doesnt seem to have any energy, then there is a good chance that there is
something wrong. It doesnt mean that the health issue is fatal or anything,
but pets are always full of energy at certain times. You should keep a close
eye on your pet and speak with your vet, just in case. If they are lethargic
for days at a time, then you need to take them to the vet.
Diarrhea and vomiting are a common aspect of having
pets. Sometimes, they just over eat or they have a hairball. Whatever the
reason, these symptoms should be watched closely. If you find your pet has
diarrhea for more than a couple of days in a row, then you should take them to
the vet. There are some serious issues that can cause diarrhea in your pet
where they can quickly become dehydrated, and that is not good either.
Sometimes this occurs if you change the brand of food they have been eating and
is a natural process of their body reacting to the change of diet; however,
some things are a lot more dangerous.
Keeping an eye on these symptoms will help you
determine your dogs health without having to run back and forth to the vet or
waiting until its too late. With just these basic symptoms, you can tell if
your dog is severely unhealthy or if you need to change their diet back to
something more agreeable.
