Blog post 13 : How often should my pet be examined by the dog vet ? 🐶🐩🦮🐕‍🦺🧑‍⚕️

Why are regular dog vet check-ups important ? 🐶🐩🦮🐕‍🦺🧑‍⚕️

Every dog owner asks this type of question, often. If you failed to do the regular dog vet visits, then the dog may end up having some major diseases that you don't know about. Hence, you need to pay lot of money both to the dog vet for consultancy and for the required drugs useful for the therapy of the clinical condition. 🐶🦮🧑‍⚕️  

One may not be able to find out the very commonly occurring clinical conditions in case of their dogs because of less experience with dog diseases or dog rearing. This is why dog vet visits are important. 🐶🦮🧑‍⚕️ 

For example, if the dog has potbelly, the condition may not look abnormal many times. But if the dog is subjected to the regular check-up, then the veterinarian immediately finds it out and gives the appropriate therapy. If not, the animal may experience diarrhea and the dehydration. 🐶🦮🧑‍⚕️ 

If the dog has any signs of illness, then don’t wait for the regular dog vet visit. Instead, you need to approach the veterinarian immediately. The dog vet visits if done in a regular manner will help to give vaccinations against canine distemper, parvovirus, corona virus, rabies virus, hepatitis virus and more. 🐶🦮🧑‍⚕️ 

Booster vaccinations will be carried out in such cases without any delay in the injections and this helps to improve the immunity level of the dog against such diseases in a remarkable degree. A dog vet visit is the essential one with proper stools examination. Hence, the deworming may be carried out with drugs like fenbendazole, albendazole, etc. 🐶🦮🧑‍⚕️ 

Abnormalities like signs of pain may be ruled out during such examinations. If not, helminthiasis may affect the animal and diarrhea may occur in addition to the other types of digestive upsets and anemia. Regular dog vet visits help to rule out the external parasitic conditions like lice or tick infestations. Dental problems are also found out during the regular check ups in reputed veterinary hospitals. 🐶🦮🧑‍⚕️ 

How often should my pet be examined by the dog vet ?

Most of the dog owners try to find this answer in a serious manner. Whatever the schedule we have for the examination of your pet animal, if there is any abnormality noticed in your animal, without delay, you need to subject the animal for a thorough clinical examination. 🐶🐕‍🦺🧑‍⚕️

It can be suggested that even before the purchase of a puppy, just consult a pet animal care specialist and try to understand about the schedules to be maintained for the examination of the animal. This will help a lot in solving many health related problems in the concerned animal. 🐶🐕‍🦺🧑‍⚕️

Though once in two or three months is the general schedule for the examination of the dog, as soon as the puppy is procured the dog needs to be taken to the veterinarian for a thorough examination. Hence, the health care measures related program will be obtained in time. 🐶🐕‍🦺🧑‍⚕️

Most of the time, the dog is to be taken to the veterinarian at fifth or sixth week of age because in this period only, the vaccinations against diseases will be systematically carried out. The period of vaccination in the first year will be continued up to the sixteenth week of age and the schedule needs to be maintained accordingly. 🐶🐕‍🦺🧑‍⚕️

However, if you have the pregnant dog, the dog need not be stressed by long distance based transportation for examination purposes. Hence, consult the dog vet by phone and try to reduce the travel for the dog. However, the dog vet advice needs to be obtained in terms of health maintenance. If the dog has met with an accident either during travel or during routine movements, the animal needs to be taken to the pet hospital immediately. 🐶🐕‍🦺🧑‍⚕️

Though no disease is evident, it does not mean that the dog is healthy. There are occasions wherein the animal may look like a normal dog but may have some diseases, which can be found out during the routine dog vet visits. Hence, the owner has to decide on when to take the dog to the hospital depending on necessity. 🐶🐕‍🦺🧑‍⚕️

The signs of ill health that must push you to visit a dog vet :

Signs of ill health are the most important signs of the health status in your dogs. For example, if the dog has continuous nasal discharge, it indicates the presence of nasal congestion and if the discharge is thick, most of the times, the dog may have pneumonia. 🐶🐩🧑‍⚕️

If the dog vomits one or two times occasionally, this may not be taken as a serious sign of ill health but if the dog continues this vomiting, then this is something significant to be looked into. 🐶🐩🧑‍⚕️

If the dog has continuous itching, then one needs to check up the dog first by closer observation and examination of skin by separating the hair material especially in case of long haired breeds. You may also come across a lot of ticks or lice on skin, which may look apparently normal at a distance. 🐶🐩🧑‍⚕️

If the dog passes loose stool for one or two times, this need not be given more emphasis but if there is continuous passing of loose stool, then the dog is understood to suffer from bowel disorders. If the dog does not pass stool for two to three days, the digestive upsets needs to be ruled out carefully. 🐶🐩🧑‍⚕️

Just patiently observe the dog’s walking movements and rule out any abnormal movements in the dog. If the dog is limping, the animal may have foot lesions. Similarly, if the aged dog has reluctant walking and less feed intake along with repeated vomiting, then acute renal disorders like nephritis needs to be ruled out. 🐶🐩🧑‍⚕️

If there is whiteness in eyes, suspect the corneal opacity that may occur in diseases like trypanasomosis. When the dog becomes anemic, the mucous membrane of the eyes becomes paler and in severe cases, this may have wall white color. If the dog bites chain and owners or others, look for behavior disorders and rabies needs to be ruled out. 🐶🐩🧑‍⚕️

Veterinary dental treatments available at your dog vet cabinet :

The dog vet dental treatments are very important. If the dental structures are not being looked carefully, there are more chances for the development of periodontal diseases in dogs. Hence, the veterinary dental treatments need to be paid maximum importance during the life of your dogs. 🐶🦷🧑‍⚕️

There are many advanced systems that deal with dental treatments that have come up in the market. Many systems are available with built in water spray systems, double filter systems, auto clavable clips and more. 🐶🦷🧑‍⚕️

Any dog vet uses high speed fiber optic hand pieces with push button turbines, two hand piece water jet systems, soundless water compressors and more. The diagnosis of a condition pertaining to the periodontal structure based diseases are more important before the treatment. 🐶🦷🧑‍⚕️

Periodontal diseases are graded into minimal and moderate and severe diseases. Accordingly the therapy is carried out, it is impossible to check all teeth by basic oral examination in the dog patient. Hence, general anesthesia is required before the examination of the teeth inside structures. 🐶🦷🧑‍⚕️

Surgical curettage is done in case of advanced periodontal diseases using flaps and the teeth extractions are also carried out using moderate force and more care is taken to avoid the continuous bleeding. 🐶🦷🧑‍⚕️

Oral surgeries are undertaken after obtaining of the dental radio graphs in the dogs and by comparing the tissue damage with normal teeth structures. The concerned veterinarians assess the extent of damage in a systematic manner. 🐶🦷🧑‍⚕️

The periodontal diseases are controlled by administration of broad-spectrum antibiotics in an effective manner. Along with the dental surgeries, the oral treatment is done with many products that are helpful to prevent the attachment of the tartar or plaque on the teeth. 🐶🦷🧑‍⚕️

However, reputable products should be used in the veterinary practice and the dog owner’s satisfaction is given more priority during the veterinary dental therapy. 🐶🦷🧑‍⚕️

What you should do during a dog vet examination ?

This question often looks so simple but holds more meanings in that. During the dog vet examination, first you need to prepare the dog first psychologically for a better-restrained status. For this, you need to take a leash and place the dog on table by the careful delivery of suitable command. 🐶🐕‍🦺🧑‍⚕️

When the dog is trying to avoid the thorough dog vet examination, just try to distract the dog by simple scratching of your dog behind the ears, etc. Hence, the dog’s attention is some what diverted from the examination procedures that are carried out often in a systematic manner. 🐶🐕‍🦺🧑‍⚕️

However, there are obedient dogs, which will remain calm during a dog vet examination. Such dogs need to be given some patting on the shoulder or the body and praises. Perhaps, many owners may try to provide some treats that are liked so much by the concerned dogs. 🐶🐕‍🦺🧑‍⚕️

However, it all depends on the trainings offered to the concerned dog earlier and the effective follow up procedures by the owner for the maintenance of such reflexes during the dog vet examination. 🐶🐕‍🦺🧑‍⚕️

Muzzles are required for some dogs if they behave in a different manner by objecting the examination procedures by the frequent movements of the body or trying to bite the dog vet doing the examination. Hence, the owner needs to observe the dog closely during the dog vet examination to rule out any abnormal activity by the dog. 🐶🐕‍🦺🧑‍⚕️

Restraining activities in a proper manner during the clinical dog vet examination are of highly appreciable if they are successful with the concerned dogs. Such control will be of highly helpful for the effective dog vet examination of the patient by the concerned veterinarian in the pet clinic. 🐶🐕‍🦺🧑‍⚕️

If the dog gets more distracted during dog vet examination by means of restlessness, then one may even use the electronic equipments which will make some sound that are audible to the dog’s ear. Such things will be helpful in the proper distraction of the animal during the dog vet examination. 🐶🐕‍🦺🧑‍⚕️

The registration to a pet health insurance will help you to reduce your dog vet costs :

Pet health insurance is highly required nowadays because of the escalating cost factors pertaining to the health maintenance in dogs and other animals. Dog owners need to find pet insurance firms that settle dues to the pet owners without much delay and in a more appropriate manner. 🐶🐩🧑‍⚕️

Pet health insurance firms recently come forward to settle the dues in a proper manner after the due verification of the claim. If anything happens, dog care costs can add up without insurance. 🐶🐩🧑‍⚕️

Hence, know the approved list of your local animal care hospital and the one of your dog vet. Even have the list of dog experts who are specialized in dog’s health care and disease management measures. 🐶🐩🧑‍⚕️

Many firms cover up the cost made towards undertaking of surgeries, radiographic examinations, treatment of specific conditions, laboratory fees towards undertaking of various dog vet examinations and more. There is a weighting period before the approval of your policy by most of the insurance firms after the enrolling from you so it's good to start early. 🐶🐩🧑‍⚕️

If you don't like the insurance firm, at any time, you can cancel the insurance policy. A licensed dog vet list should be available with all insurance firms. Many payment options are available for the pet owners. 🐶🐩🧑‍⚕️

It is better to enroll the dogs or other pets before they become adults. The animals when they are young need to be enrolled as a priority.
It is always better to the consumers who are the dog owners. 🐶🐩🧑‍⚕️

Before the dogs have any illness, accidents, or get into the pre-existing conditions as quoted by many pet health insurance firms, insurance coverage needs to be entered by the dog owners. The medical history of your dog will be subjected to the full review by the insurance firms, so start soon. 🐶🐩🧑‍⚕️

The importance of continuous personal dog physical examination to prevent further visits to the dog vet :

The importance of continuous personal physical examination need not be underestimated in case of dogs. Simple but systematic physical examination techniques may diagnose most of the disorders in dogs and hence, without physical examination of the dog, one should not resort to knowing the status of your dog's health. 🐶🦮🧑‍⚕️

Simply observe the dog with scratching. Catch the dog and simply separate the hair material from the itching site. To the surprise you may come across a big wound in the scratched site. The wound might be the main reason for the scratching of the dog at that site. However, one has to rule out the occurrence of wound by severe itching itself. 🐶🦮🧑‍⚕️

Many times, when the scratching dog is examined physically, one can come across plenty of lice infestation or tick problem in the skin and coat. The parasitic condition might not be diagnosed at all if one has not carried out the physical examination. 🐶🦮🧑‍⚕️

Similarly, the dog may reveal the signs of pain when the physical examination is carried out by deep palpation technique. The dog show signs of pain when the dog is examined at the stomach or the back regions. 🐶🦮🧑‍⚕️

Even if it is possible that by pressure based palpation, one can detect the acute renal disorders in the affected dogs turn to the examined site at the region of kidney or at the back region. The dog affected by the Cystitis with severe retention of urine is often diagnosed by mere physical examination. 🐶🦮🧑‍⚕️

The filled bladder together with signs of pain during the examination at the site of urinary bladder indicates that the animal is affected by Cystitis. Auscultation of the heart in both right and left sides helps to rule out the abnormal heart sounds and the pulmonary area based auscultation reveals the respiratory system disorder like pneumonia. 🐶🦮🧑‍⚕️
