What You Should Know About Dog Health Care
Our dogs are now, more than ever, a very important part of our families. We care for them as we care for ourselves. That includes taking a greater interest in our dogs' health care. In response, there have been many advances in dog health care in recent years:
Preventative Dog Health Care
Annual checkups with routine blood test and dental care go far in catching serious dog health care problems early, increasing the dog's duration and quality of life. Medicines targeting fleas, ticks, heartworm, and intestinal parasites prevent both the pests and the diseases they cause.
Diagnosis of Canine Health Problems
Dog health care benefits by interested owners conscientiously bringing their dogs for yearly checkups: 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. Not only do these factors enable more effective care, but they also save you money in the long run because your pet won't need repeated vet visits to find his problem.
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 or epilepsy.
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 dog's veterinarian is his health advocate and your ally. Next time you visit your veterinarian, ask about new advances that might be help your dog live better.
