Some Dog Health Problems are Easy to Resolve

Some Dog Health Problems are Easy to Resolve

Puppies are generally a delight to have around. As long as you can cope with the chewing up of garments and expensive items, the huge energy and the occasional soiling as they become potty trained.

But that’s a small price to pay for the enthusiasm for life they have, for the fun that infectiously oozes from them.

You love him. He loves you. All is well with the world.

Until he falls sick.

Then your world crashes.

The first thing that springs to mind is what caused it? Was it something you did or didn’t do? Is it your fault? Were you too vigilant or not vigilant enough? Did you overprotect him or did you let him roam free too much?

Well, chances are that it was your fault.

But only by virtue of the fact you were doing as you were told, probably because you thought someone else knew better than you. Perhaps if you had listened to that little inner voice you sometimes hear, but mostly ignore, which told you different, things may not be this bad.

It’s never too late to learn.

And animals have an amazing way of ensuring you do indeed learn, mostly from your mistakes.

So now your puppy has grown up and has a few dog health problems.

The first possible cause to consider it what he is doing every day.


What are you feeding him?

Commercial dog food, as most holistic veterinarians have found, is the route cause of many, if not most, dog health problems.

Depending on the country, brand and era or manufacture, most commercial dog food looks something like this:

low grade meat by-products, often from a rendering plant cheap, health lacking filler such as paper, sawdust, sugar, nut shells, melamine indigestible isolated and synthetic nutrients toxic preservatives not permitted in human food

Sounds pretty unhealthy doesn’t it? Even one of those ingredients may be contributing to your dog health problem, but what if he was eating all four?

Although there are as many causes for dog health problems as there are dogs, by far the most common is the food you are feeding him.

By virtue of its daily consumption, healthy dog food, similar to the food his wild cousins eat, will go a long way to making his immune system strong, strong enough to fend off most dog health problems for years.

If you’re worried about the expense, don’t be. Feeding real food to your dog is as cheap as feeding commercial dog food. It may take a little more time, especially in the early stages as you are finding your feet, but just consider the fortune you save on veterinarian bills! They don’t come cheap by any means.

Q&A: Question about dog food?

Question by khrissy: Question about dog food?
My dog food clearly says on the label that it is free of animal by-products, artificial colors and presertives. Is there any way to tell if this is true. When me and my husband shop for our dogs food thats the first place we look, the ingredients. Alot of them will say chicken by product on the ingredient list, while on the front of the bag in big letters it says “Chicken is our number 1 ingredient!” How do we know what is really in our pets food??
