Hows Your Knowledge on Common Dog Health Problems

by Brigitte Smith

Over the course of a lifetime, your dog may suffer a number of dog health problems. Whether it?s a dog disease or a simple cold, it is important to be aware of the various symptoms and remedies, in order to keep your dog healthy. It is impossible to know the solution for every dog health problem that may come up, but being aware and knowing where to find the answer is crucial.

While there are a number of different health problems and diseases that may arise, it is vital that you know the symptoms and remedies for the most common problems that will come up. One of these problems that often come up with dogs is constipation. Constipation causes a build up of toxins, which can lead to a number of other dog health problems as well.

In order to treat constipation for your dog, there are a few things you can do. The most common remedy is to change your dog?s diet. If this does not work, you will want to seek a veterinarian?s advice. More than likely the vet will prescribe a mild laxative to relieve the pressure and allow your dog to do its business.

Another common dog health problem is fleas, which many dogs will be afflicted by at some point in their life. The most popular method of treating fleas and ticks on dogs is by using a pesticide. What many people aren?t aware of is that pesticides use toxic chemicals that can harm the health of your dog in the long run.

A better route to help your dog is a remedy called diatomaceous earth. This is a remedy that is made up of ancient geological deposits of fossilized skeletons of microscopic organisms. These deposits are broken into tiny pieces that are razor-sharp, but feel like a fine powder to humans and pets. However, to fleas and ticks the razor-sharp particles pierce their protective coating, causing them to lose bodily fluid and die.

A dog disease that you have to pay close attention to is heartworm. It affects hundreds of thousands of dogs every year and can be lethal if not treated immediately. Many veterinarians will recommend your dog use a toxic treatment, but if you can you should stay away from this. Herbal heartworm treatment is much gentler in treating and preventing heartworm and your dog will prefer it over toxic chemicals.
