How can I know that my dog is sick and needs medical attention?
First indications are usually eating and drinking habits, as well as his mood in general, and his desire to exercises. When taking your dog to the veterinarian, make a list of the symptoms that are worrying you, specifying since when you have noted them. The veterinarian may also need the exact date of the last heat of female , or if she has been castrated, how long you had her, an if she has been vaccinated. Then he will ask you some question before starting to examine the dog. This is "taking note of their history". Be as precise as possible. If your dog has been drinking more water than usual, specify how many liters daily. It's very hard for the veterinary to get the right and useful impression, if you tell him the dog drinks two bowls, if he does not knows the volume of those bowls. Take a look to your dog when doing his necessities, to detect some difficulty in urinating or defecation. Asking is better even if not necessary, than letting time go by, cause the dog can't tell you when he needs it. The veterinarian can diagnose diseases and give the correct medicines, but the owner is the interpreter between the dog and the veterinarian.
