One annoying thing with a dog health problem is that unlike humans, dogs cannot convey (in general) how they are feeling.

The first sign that something is wrong may just be their general mood or behavior so observation will play a major part in helping your dog recover from their health set back. Here are a couple of potential health problems that you should pay attention to.


This is a very common problem that is often associated with dogs. Fleas are basically external parasites that make your dog their main meal by sucking their blood. You can use Face foundation for your pets to save their life from fleas.

While fleas are known to make your dogs scratch that is often the least of your dog's problems. Because they bite into your dog they can potentially introduce infections into the wound.

The best thing you can do is to look for signs of excessive scratching and then if fleas are found, take the appropriate action to rid your dog of the parasite.

Intestinal Infections

These, in general, are worms which again is quite a common dog health problem. It can cause a great deal of discomfort and at the extreme end of the scale, it can lead to death. Intestinal worms are usually introduced to the dog via raw means containing the worm.

This is why it is important that you should always cook your meat before giving it to your dog. Fleas and lice are also known to harbor tapeworms.

Skin Problems

You often see some dogs with bald patches or dogs that are losing hair in certain spots; in this case, you are most likely dealing with a skin infection.

If your dog is balding in patches then it is most likely a ringworm infection or a bacterial infection. In general, this dog health problem is not as bad or troublesome as the likes of fleas but it should be addressed as soon as possible.
