Neliečte the dog as a man, nor does it treat you as dogs
The domestic treatment can be divided into two groups
Home treatment, during which a problem of your dog can be handled at home without visiting a veterinary surgeon, e.g. I use the so-called.
Canine Medicine Cabinets (which we wrote in the last issue).
Main tasks of Home care
Every sick dog needs peace and care, so with him we go out on short (mostly necessary) walks.
A sick doggy necessarily requires a warm, calm place and increased care. It is best to place it in a quiet space, without draughts, where we control its health status.
Let us have to remember that most medicines prescribe a veterinarian, only a small part – e.g.
If your dog receives a diet, you can hide the medicine in the goodness he likes. For example, into a small piece of cheese or wrap them in ham.
Method of administration of the tablet
Place the tablet as deep as possible on the root of the tongue and privrite him muzzle. After a short moment, it also thanks to Prehltaciemu Reflex. Muzzle him release only when he will be sure that the drug travels to the stomach.
Generally important principles for administering medicinal products
The administration interval (especially important in antibiotics).
To comply with the prescribed quantity of medicinal products.
The total time of administration of the medicinal products.
Consult a veterinarian if the post-administration condition does not improve.
Not every disease requires an immediate visit by a veterinarian, it does not always have the dog owner’s ability to immediately transport him to the office. If this is not an acute case (referred to in the previous article) or injury or injury, it is advisable to first contact a doctor by telephone. In order to be able to get the „cleanest“ information, it requires the owner some preparation.
What should be noted
Breed, gender, age of Doggy,
How long is the dog sick,
How the disease develops and what are the symptoms
When and how the dog was vaccinated,
What is the temperature (if the owner can measure it),
How and whether the dog receives food and water,
What droppings and urine looks like.
Of course, the veterinarian will have other questions, often seemingly unrelated directly to the condition of the doggy, but believe that they are in place and therefore try to notice as much as possible what your doggy refers to.
I wish you and your štvornohým pets a good health and those who have left somewhere and sit with your dog for example in the ambulance clinic of your vet, I wish you an early healing!
