The 20 Most Common Dog Health Problems

Even people who never had a dog know that they are famous for their ability to hide the pain they are feeling. For actual dog owners, there is a responsibility that comes with having a puppy or a dog that includes checking out the dog regularly for any potential problems. One problem is that you need to know where to look before you can effectively deal with any problem.

The most common dog health problems often go undetected because a dog’s nature is to make its owner happy and hide any pain in pursuit of that goal. But health problems are different prom actual injuries, the thing most dog owners will notice right away. If you dog is limping or bleeding that should be very obvious. A health problem requires a health check beyond an annual visit to the vet.

Some of the problems on this list can end up killing you dog. Just because they are common doesn’t mean they can remain untreated and will go away on their own. (By the way, a doggy cold is not on the list.) While not all problems require an appointment with the veterinarian, you may want to do a follow up call just to be sure. If not, make it a point to bring up any health problems during your next regular visit to the vet.
