The answer to can my dog get a toothache is yes! I do not know about you, but how often do you think about your dog’s teeth? If you are like me, not too often. A dog’s teeth should be routinely examined at least once a year by your vet and you, as the pet parent should take a peek inside your dog’s mouth at least every few months. Why?
I realize this seems like a very odd problem to talk about regarding dogs. However, many of my readers have male dogs that they use for breeding and though it can affect neutered dogs, too, it is more common in “intact dogs” and is worth taking the time to remind pet owners of this problem. A vet should give a prostate examine to any intact male dog over the age of five years as a preventative measure.
Humans, dogs and cats have a lot of features in common. We share many of the same reactions to stress and pain, but there is one thing that cats, canines and most other animals have, that we don’t, the third eyelid.
You take good care of your dog, feed it the best food you can afford, make certain it gets at least a yearly veterinarian exam and make sure your pet is safely confined to your yard or on a leash with you. However, in the past few weeks you have noticed your pet has had several persistent bouts with diarrhea and now and then is vomiting. Your dog even looks as though it has lost some weight. You have not changed its diet, so what is wrong?
What happened after I picked her up? How is she handling being locked in the house and not having baths and so on?
You accept the challenge…even though you know it could be life-threatening… but what the heck…you only live once.
