It’s a dog’s life—and as a pet owner, you want to make sure that life is as long, happy, and healthy as possible. But some puppy problems, like constant barking, yard digging, and furniture chewing, have a tendency to leave us scratching our heads, if not tearing out our hair. While you should always consult your vet before trying any at-home health fixes, many everyday concerns have safe, effective home remedies that may work for your dog. Save time and money on your pet’s care with the following tips from Joey Green’s Amazing Pet Cures.
By three months of age, the protective antibodies naturally passed along through a mother’s milk have been used up and your puppy needs to be vaccinated to help protect him or her against many common infectious diseases, including leptospirosis, distemper and parvovirus, as well as a rabies vaccination. Your vet may also recommend vaccinations for kennel cough and Lyme disease. Vaccinations will save your dog’s life.
Routine care is one of the most important things pet parents do for their dog, especially since our animals cannot communicate to us directly when they have biological needs. It is important for us to be the intuitive and caring humans our animals deserve by feeding them healthy food, enabling exercise, scheduling regular visits to the vet, providing ample grooming, and administering essential health supplements.
Since your dog ages at a faster rate than you, many subtle changes can develop over a six to twelve month period. Routine visits allow your vet to closely monitor changes before your dog’s health gets out of control. Learn how to effectively communicate with your vet and you can expect the same in return. If you can develop a good connection with your vet, it can lead to long-term benefit for you and your dog.
“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” That immortal line from the movie The Shining might as well be every dog’s mantra. We humans tend to be workaholics, but dogs would much rather goof off all day. Although I’m guilty of workaholism, I recognize my dogs’ deep-seated desire for downtime, so I carve out time in my schedule to indulge that need as often as possible, even when it’s deadline city at the home office. It’s not always easy, but I do it because I know it keeps my dogs healthy. And honestly, I find that when I return to my computer after a dog walk, my writing and thinking improve because I feel refreshed — so everybody wins.
Water is the most important aspect of a healthy diet yet it’s the most overlooked. There are well over 150 chemicals in most tap waters, depending on where you live. We can argue all day about the safety of that healthy, naturally-occurring stuff called fluoride, or we can shift our focus towards its nasty, toxic waste version that’s in our water supply … hydrofluorosilicic acid. 97% of Europe refuses to put it in their water supply. It’s a byproduct of fertilizer manufacturing and it contains traces of arsenic and lead, and also increases the body’s uptake of aluminium.
Some foods that are especially great for keeping your pet fit and healthy and when you can, you should try to include them in your dogs’ diet. Among the best super foods are eggs, mackerel, goat or sheep yogurt, chicken and turkey, kale and spinach, broccoli, carrots, sweet potato, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries and apple
Dental disease tends to rear its ugly head between the ages of 4 and 9, and has a strong connection to heart disease. The plaque, tartar and infection in a dog’s mouth can enter the bloodstream and contribute to congestive heart failure. Be sure to maintain a healthy dental care routine and see your vet if you notice problems like foul breath, sore gums, bleeding or drooling.
Remember: Your dog relies on you for proper care and you should have medical checkups done annually or more often if a health condition exists. But why so important you ask? Three out of every four dogs have some form of dental disease (tooth and gum) by the time they reach middle age, generally between 5 and 9 years old. Dr. Larry Glickman at Purdue University has shown a strong link between gum disease and heart disease in dogs.
