  • Common Dog Health Problems

    Posted on March 27, 2012 by Lizzie

    Nothing is more important than the health and happiness of your dog. As the two often come hand in hand, it’s important to maintain the health of your dog to make sure that he is the happiest that he could possibly be. As with humans, dogs can suffer from common illnesses and conditions, and like humans, it is important to look out for them to make sure that they can be treated as early as possible. Below are some of the most frequent illnesses and conditions that dogs commonly suffer from.

    Joints

    It is a little known fact that one in five dogs suffer from Arthritis at some point during their lives. As the disorder can be extremely painful for your friend, it is important to look out for the signs of the onset of arthritis. If your dog seems stiff or sore whilst walking or sitting down, or favours one limb over another, this could be the sign that your dog is suffering from arthritis. A simple x-ray at the vets will be able to confirm if your four-legged friend is suffering from the disorder. Larger breeds such as Labradors, German Shepherds and Collies tend to suffer more from the disorder.

Walking your four-legged friend is important, not only should it be a source of enjoyment for the both of you, but it also yields a whole range of health benefits and can serve as a remedy for diseases and disorders.
