What’s worse than a pooch that’s under the weather?  Not much.  Unlike all but the youngest human beings, even the wisest dog has no ability to tell his person what’s bothering him.  The only clues a dog owner has to determine what’s wrong with a beloved pet may be subtle and difficult to determine.  Here’s a quick guide to the most common dog skin problems, dog eye problems, and overall dog health problems:

Dog Eye Problems:  Dog eye problems can range from pesky to severe and have numerous causes.  Eye problems are often caused by bacterial or viral infections.  The most common dog eye problem is “red eye” which has the following symptoms: cloudy eyes, excessive blinking, hampered vision, eye rubbing, squinting, and tearing.

Dog Skin Problems: Dog skin problems are generally caused by the following factors (sometimes in combination with one another): external parasites, infections, allergies, metabolic problems, and stress.  Symptoms include: Scratching, licking, chewing, scabs, inflammation or redness, round scaly patches on face or paw region, bald patches, rashes, lesions, blood or pus, swelling, discoloration, using furniture or carpet to rub up against, and hot spots (areas where itching is severe).

Dog Health Problems: Many common dog health problems can be prevented through the antibodies supplied through mother’s milk followed by vaccinations and annual boosters. These health issues are: distempter, hepatitis, leptospirosis, kennel cough, corona, and rabies.  Other common problems include, internal parasites, external parasites, ear infection, and anal gland infection.  Common sense coupled with regular trips to the vet will help ensure your dog companion never has to suffer these maladies.

If you suspect your dog is suffering from any of the above (or any other) health problems, do not hesitate to call your veterinarian.  When it comes to those furry members of the family, it is always better to be safe than sorry.
