Pet Health - Dog Health
Dog Health Care: What You Should Know
by Joel Walsh
Dog health care means more than a yearly trip to the vet.
Now more than ever, a dog's health problems can be prevented,
cured, or alleviated, just like many human woes.
Preventative Dog Health Care
Diagnosis of Canine Health Problems
- Annual checkups with routine blood test and dental
care go far in catching serious dog health care problems
early, increasing the dogs duration and quality
- Medicines targeting fleas, ticks, heartworm, and
intestinal parasites prevent both the pests and the
diseases they cause.
Dog health care benefits by interested owners conscientiously
bringing their dogs for yearly checkups:
Not only do these factors enable more effective care,
but they also save you money in the long run because your
pet wont need repeated vet visits to find his problem.
- New and better blood, lab, and x-ray procedures
aid the veterinarian in gaining valuable knowledge
of what is happening to your dog.
- New and improved equipment like MRI machines speed
up diagnosis as well.
Dog Health Treatment Advances
Veterinarians now do amazing things for our dogs. Here
are a few of the most impressive advances in veterinary
treatment for dogs:
- Chemotherapy to treat cancer in dogs
- Pacemakers for dog heart problems
- Drugs that cure or control dog diseases like diabetes
Veterinarians today generally have at least 8 years of
education added to their deep love of animals. They combine
the skills of a surgeon, anesthesiologist, radiologist,
dietitian and much more.
Veterinary hospitals or clinics are well-staffed and well-equipped
medical centers where all breeds of dogs, as well as other
animals, are treated, often in one day, for an enormous
variety of conditions.
Clearly, dog health care is better today that ever before.
Your dogs veterinarian is his health advocate and
your ally. Next time you visit your veterinarian, ask
about new advances that might help your dog live better.
