Dog health

As an owner it’s only natural to want the best for your dog, and that means taking care of all of their needs, especially when it comes to their health.

At Animal Friends we know too well that there are lots of illnesses, injuries and conditions that your dog may suffer from in their lifetime, and in most cases knowing how to spot them early is crucial.

If you’re ever worries about your pet it’s always best to consult your vet. It’s handy to learn which signs or behaviours to look out for; knowing the symptom is the first step to spotting the disease. Here are some obvious signs that something isn’t quite right:

  • Bleeding
  • Limping
  • Unsteadiness
  • Lethargy
  • Pale gums
  • Disorientation
  • Quick weight loss/gain
  • Quick weight loss/gain
  • Stiffness
  • Cloudy
  • dry or red eyes
  • Respiratory distress
  • Itchy
  • greasy
  • dry or flaky skin

If you spot any of these symptoms there’s a chance your pet is injured or unwell, so it’s very important to speak to a veterinary professional.
