Top 4 Common Health Problems With Your Dog That You Should Know About

Your dog likes to run and play with other dogs

It’s a great way for it to meet new friends and to socialize with you too. But there are times when it just can’t be friendly with other dogs and ends up bringing one home to your house instead. What do you do?

A: Get a dog bite guide for ticks on dogs.

B: Fleas, like all parasites, love warm, wet environments. Your dog probably spent most of its time outside during warmer parts of the year and has come into contact with many other dogs. A: Perhaps, fleas got into your dog from another pets in the area, an urban stray dog, or even your neighbor’s cat or dog, or maybe some raccoons have followed your pet dog. There are some cases where fleas have been known to hitch rides on dogs, but you shouldn’t count on it.

C: You probably have a dog that’s been in a fight with another dog. That can cause it to be infected with ticks and fleas. A: Lyme disease and other kinds of ticks are spread by the bite of a tick. This is why it is so important that you have your dog checked out by a veterinarian for this illness. Dogs can also contract Lyme disease through direct contact with infected ticks.

D: This isn’t really a question. Your pet will become flea infested very quickly during tick season. This is because the more active during tick season, the more likely you are to run into other pets that have fleas. Your vet can advise you on how to keep your pet leashed and more importantly, can guide you in how much to feed your dog with respect to the needs of the ticks and fleas.

Rocky Mountain spotted fever is another issue with dogs. This disease is caused by a tick known as the western black-legged tick. It is spread primarily by biting and sucking on the blood of the warm-blooded animals. This can include you dog, but is especially worrisome with warm-blooded animals such as you dog.

Heart worm disease is a big concern during the tick season. This disease is caused by the parasites known as the hook-worm. The parasites live on the internal organs of warm-blooded animals and then attach themselves to the host. Once there, they secrete eggs that become larvae and hook onto the heart lining and cause a life-threatening condition. The larvae then inject the resident worms that cause a variety of heart and circulatory problems.
