  • 3. Complete DogHealthGuide Dog Health Tail A dogs tail can sometimes be an indicator of a dog’s health. Sometimes you may find that the tail of your dog is giving him pain. It may be due to serious injury or it may be due to something not serious at all. For example, the dog’s tail may get hurt at the time you are closing your door while your dog remain inside, but his tail is not. In such case, if no extremity happens, the problem may only last long for short term period. Your dog’s tail can attract the insects to climb and bite the softest tip and give them a pain sensation in return. In some cases, this biting can turn out to be infectious and may need a critical veterinary attention. The vet may prescribe antibiotic medications and nursing. If your dog’s anal sac catches any sort of infection, it may also cause the dog to cling down the tail so that it can protect the infected area. In some cases, when the dog becomes fearful, he may hold down his tail, since the position of tail is a clear indicator of a dog’s communicative cues. If the dog is suffering from back pain or back injury, or if he is suffering from generalized fatigue problem from metabolic health problem or neuromotor problem. If the dog tail is limp, it may be a serious concern to meet the vet. If the dog is experiencing limber tail syndrome or ‘cold water tail’, the dog’s tail goes limp and then falls down from the original tail base. Sometimes, it just goes straight horizontally and then hangs down. The dog feels absolutely uncomfortable about this condition, however, it sometimes not a serious
  • 4. Complete DogHealthGuide issue of concern. Limber tail syndrome usually occurs due to excessive workouts, swimming in extreme cold or hot water and heavy hunting. Dog Health Lump A lump is a common health issue for a dog. It can develop for a variety of reasons such as insect biting or stinging, formation of abscesses, hematomas, swelling in soft tissues, and malignant tumors. If your dog is experiencing lump, chances are there that he is suffering from tumor. Studies say that nearly two third of these tumors are benign. When you have found a lump on your dog’s skin, you should take him to the vet. The vet takes two issues under consideration: whether the lump needs any sort of surgical removal or not, and if it needs surgical intervention, whether it needs further medication or not. In some cases, the dog lump is so evidently benign that the vet even does not bother for a biopsy. If your dog is diagnosed with lump, doctors put a great effort in examining the lump with regard to its size, appearance and position. In addition, doctors critically examine local lymph nodes if there is any sign of metastasis. Benign tumors typically develop slowly and are subject to a little change over time. It causes the dog much lesser trouble. On the other hand, malignant lamp usually grows faster and within a few weeks it turns out to be critical.
  • 5. Complete DogHealthGuide Benign lumps can be categorized under different heads – skin tags and naevi, papillomas and warts, sebaceous cysts, sebaceous hyperplasia, basal cell tumor, histiocytoma, and lipoma. On the other hand, malignant cell lumps can be categorized under the following heads – squamous cell carcinoma, melanomas, and mast cell tumors. A dog lump problem is integrally associated with aging. Most of the cases, it is not so complicated or critical and it is not life-threatening as well. Although in most of the cases, it is not risky, but you should consult to the vet, once you find any lumps on your dog’s body. Dog Health Nose There is a ‘warm nose myth’ in the air that makes a pet owner to believe that his dog might not be feeling well. When the dog’s nose is dry and warm, one may consider this as a symptom of bad health for the dog and the owner becomes desperate to see a cold and wet nose of his dog. But this is all myth. There is no reality in it. The fact is: dog heath can not be determined by its nose condition. It is absolutely natural that the nose changes its
  • 6. Complete DogHealthGuide dry-wet condition. Admitted that changes in the nose structure, whether it is crusty or flaky, or if it changes its color, well, it is certainly a matter of concern and you need to take your dog to the vet.

Changing nose health of dog can sometimes be a serious issue of concern and you need to take a great care of the dog, right from taking the dog to the vet to personal care.

When the dog is not eating due to psychological reasons, it may not last longer and when the dog is able to come out from his depression, the eating problem gets over. In most of the cases, a depressed dog typically does not vomit due to depression. But when the problem is due to physiological reasons, the causes may be varied. Some dietary malfunction, parasitical infection, viral and bacterial infections and so on. If you find your dog not eating for a prolonged period of time, it is high time to meet your vet immediately. When you take your
