of ill health in your dogs 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.
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

to check up the dog first by closer observation
and examination of skin by separating the hair

You may also come across a lot of ticks or lice
on skin, which may look apparently normal at a
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

and rule out any abnormal movements in the dog.
If the dog is limping, the animal may have foot

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.
