Noticing a potential health problem in a dog isn't always easy. Dogs can't tell us where something hurts or what they are feeling - and many dogs hide that there is a problem at all. That's why it's vital to pay close attention to your dog's behaviour so you can notice subtle changes.

Once you've noticed a change in behaviour or other symptom, the next step is to get a diagnosis. You should always consult a professional veterinarian for this, as we don't provide medical advice at TheDogClinic.com. We do provide information about various conditions though.

Some of the issues we cover in this section include:

  • Diet. What can dogs eat? And what should they avoid at all costs?
  • Health Problems.What are the symptoms or common health problems in dogs? How are they treated? How does exercise and diet affect health?
  • Strange behaviour. If your dog is behaving differently, it's important to work out what's causing it
  • And much more...

About the Dog Health Section

The posts in this section of the site are designed to help you if you suspect your dog has a health problem. However, none of the posts are written to provide veterinary advice and we always recommend seeing a vet as soon as possible if you notice a health problem or strange behaviour from your dog. Dogs can quickly deteriorate if untreated for health conditions, so contacting a vet promptly is vital.
