Confused About Your Canine? Read This For Clarity

Does the dog food selection at your supermarket leave you unsatisfied? Many people think that they could be taking better care of their furry friends if they knew how. A lot of dog owners wind up handling things on their own. With a little sound advice, (like the tips you’ll find below) treating your dog well is a real breeze.

Avoid kisses and stick with hugs. A dog has a very filthy mouth. Dogs go through garbage cans, toilet bowls, and love smelling and licking specific body parts of some other dogs. Keep in mind that an animal’s mouth is full of germs. However, this simply is not the case.

You should take your dog to the vet at least once a year. Dogs can’t talk, so how do you know he has arthritis, for example? Annual checkups can catch these things before they become major problems.

Be careful when selecting canine flea treatments. A lot of the ones on the market have ingredients that are 1000 times more potent than what is considered safe by the EPA and it may be a cancer risk for children. Bring up the subject of alternative and family-friendly treatments the next time you see your vet, and always be sure to apply these treatments when no children are present.

You should never give table scraps to your dog. That encourages him to beg and makes him not want his own food. “People food” can also make dogs sick and contribute to obesity. While you and your family dine, keep your dog in another room so that table-feeding isn’t an option.

You can be a great dog owner. There is more than just food when it comes to dogs. Keep this article’s suggestions in mind and you’ll be the proud owner of one healthy, happy pooch!
