The dog was the first animal to be tamed by man. It happened many thousands of years ago, and since then the life of a man and a dog runs side by side.
However, it should be noted that the role of the dog in human life has changed significantly since then. If before it was a helper of a man on hunting, or guarded his home, now people get dogs in the houses, rather, for the soul. Therefore, dogs of hunting and service breeds now become pets, family members.
Any dog is faithful to its owners, it gives love and affection, is not capable of meanness. No pet can do such a job better than a dog. Even cats that have also long since firmly established the status of pets can’t be compared to dogs in relation to humans.
For some lonely people, a dog can be a real outlet for a family member. This is not to mention the positive impact of communicating with the animal on the psychological state of the person.
The dog loves his master absolutely selflessly, demanding nothing in return. However, it goes without saying that you are responsible for those who have been tamed! Unfortunately, animals are sick at least as often as people, so if your dog suddenly does not feel well, he should certainly be examined.
Tom, animals are much better and cleaner than humans themselves. Even if the owner is not very caring about the animal, the dog will still meet him every night from work, wag his tail, lick his hands, perform any command at first request.
Sometimes the contact between a dog and a person is so close that one look or movement of the owner is enough to make your dog understand what is required of him. The illness of your beloved dog is as frustrating to a good host as any other family member’s disease.
Our four-legged friends’ bodies are as complex as the human body. And the list of possible diseases that require a serious enough large. Dogs have a highly developed psycho-emotional and nervous system, memory; they have feelings such as love, sadness, joy, longing, fear.
The anatomical structure of a dog’s body is similar to that of a human being; it has the same organs and sensory capabilities. Dogs have worse eyesight, but they have several times better hearing and sense of smell. A dog’s life is not only about reflexive behavior, it can dream and think. The main difference from a human being is that he is not able to think abstractly and build logical chains.
If you keep your dog in your home, then your attitude towards his health should be no less serious than that of your own. The causes of illness in dogs are very diverse. Disease is often caused by a failure of natural selection, as breeders, when breeders breed or maintain a particular breed, do not always pay due attention to the natural health of the animal, but rely on the quality and preservation of the exterior and the breed’s characteristics.
With the help of animal diagnostics, a number of specific diseases, which are characteristic of a particular breed of dog, have been identified. It can be said that the more a dog differs from a wolf in its morphology, the greater the risk of specific diseases.
Poor quality and unfair breeding also leads to the development of many genetic diseases. Unfortunately, money plays a big role for some animal owners these days, and for many things they close their eyes, allowing sick dogs to breed.
Lack of exercise, lack of exercise, lack of movement, and an incorrect diet can also cause illness in dogs. Before you get a dog of any breed, you need to learn about its characteristics if you need to consult a specialist.
Many owners spoil their dog and feed it with all kinds of delicacies right from their tables, not realizing that they are causing great harm to the health of the animal. After all, a special diet is necessary for the dog, it is not suitable for cutlets and sweets.
In addition, dogs are able to experience real stress, which also has a negative impact on their health. All the troubles that happen in your family, your bad mood – all this dog lets through yourself, hence the development of psychosomatic diseases.
If you decide to get a pet, remember that you are responsible for it! Learn the peculiarities of the breed, read the special literature, use, and most importantly, really love, and take care of your dog!
Remember that the life and health of your four-legged friend is in your hands. Be a real, devoted friend to him. Believe me, he will answer you with the same coin!
