Routine check ups are essential for a dog's wellbeing

When should I bring my dog to the vet?

You should pay attention to when your dog is exhibiting the following signs and symptoms: whining, crying, vomiting, diarrhea, excessive thirst, lethargy, or sudden weight loss, among many others.

As a pet owner, you should familiarize yourself with your own pet’s behavior. You should be the first one to recognize if your pet is displaying uncommon demeanor

As soon as you notice any behavioral changes or signs of pain or discomfort, it’s a good idea to call your vet right away or take your pet in for a check up.

What can I give my dog when he is in pain?

If your vet appointment is days away and your pet appears to be suffering from certain pain or discomfort, you can safely give him limited doses of Ibuprofen or Aspirin.

While these are considered to be human medication, they can prove effective in reducing inflammation, fever, or even soothing pain in our canine animals.

Post-administration, you should observe for any negative changes in your pet’s behavior. Side effects may include vomiting, diarrhea, or skin redness.

Any negative changes in your dog's behavior should be given attention

How often should I bring my dog to the vet?

Generally speaking, if your canine pal is showing signs of possible illness or disease then you should bring him in for a check up. 

Other than that, it all depends on your pet’s age when you should bring them in for an examination. During the first quarter, you should take in your puppy for monthly visits. When your dog reaches the adult stage (1-7 years), an annual check up would work fine.

However, when your pet reaches its senior years (upwards of 7 years), it would be advisable to bring your pet for check ups two times a year. Older dogs tend to have more complications and your vet would like to ensure your pet’s well-being.
