Just as humans, your dog will still get sick regardless of the care you give. Their bodies are pretty vulnerable as well. There are all sorts of diseases and possible causes of injury that our pets might be facing out there. Below are signs your dog isn’t feeling well:
First, gently feel his/her nose. If it’s dry, warm, it tells you that maybe your buddy isn’t feeling up to par. He may be moving slowly with a sad look on his face. It may be the processed food that he eats, or you may need to go out and take a walk with him/her a little more often than usual.
Change in behavior
Unusual behavior is another one of the symptoms of sick dog behavior. Is he more protective of you lately or his/her stuffed animal toys? Does he growl more often at people who walk in the house? Is he laying around in a deep sleep one night then the next night suffering from insomnia type symptoms? This may be from changes in her environment. Dogs are very sensitive to what is going on around them. If there’s any extra stress in the household or somebody or another animal isn’t around anymore, and then the puppy will pick up on that and start to experience symptoms of sick dog behavior.
When looking for symptoms of sick dog behavior also be on the lookout for extreme weight gain or weight loss. This can sometimes happen when there given medication from the vet and there body reacts to the pills. Be sure tp keep the lines of verbal communication open with your vet when you experience these symptoms of sick dog behavior.
So make sure you see the signs, gently feel his/her nose, look for signs of any unusual behavior, check you dog for sudden weight loss or weight gain. Follow all of these rules and I’m sure you’ll have a family pet that will remain happy, loving and healthy for years to come.
