^^^ I agree !! The only thing I would add is a tranquilizer or a shot of brandy for the owner !

Default How do I know when my dog is ill?

Hi guys,

I am new here and learning about dogs and dog training. I am also blogging about my journey in learning about dogs in

I want to know how we detect whether our beloved dog is ill?

Is it also okay if we administer human medicine to dogs?

Thanks in advance.

You'll be able to notice a difference in how they're acting, maybe they're not eating like normal, their pooping/peeing schedual is different and what comes out is different looking/smelling than normal. Changes in panting, drinking, playing, how much attention they want....these can all signal a change.

You can give human meds to dogs, but it really depends on WHAT you're wanting to give and why. It's always best to check with your vet before administering any medication.

"There's a start. I should know what to use to induce vomiting, but I'm really not sure. We'll have to do some research on possible poisoning first aid . . "

my grandad used to tell us to give your dog a raw egg... it wont hurt them and it induces vomiting should they ever swallow something hazardous like poison... he has used this on his dogs for years anytime theres a stomach problem... he gives his cats raw eggs to make their coat shiny... cats will lap it up bc it doesnt effect them the way it effects dogs... cats do not throw up by eating raw eggs(at least mine never have and my grandads cats never have) but dogs will not drink them on their own you have to pour into their mouth like you would a liquid medicine.

raw eggs should not cause your dog to throw up.

Lots of people feed their dogs raw eggs as part of their diet.

That's a good idea. I would have never thought of that for my dog.

Nice suggestions on what should comprise a Canine First Aid Kit. I think I should buy or make one for my dog.
Dogs are miracles with paws.

No one appreciates the very special genius of your conversation as the dog does.

Keep these items around.

Benedryl can be used to treat allergic reactions and that can range from mild to severe. This includes bee stings & snake bites.

Vaseline can be used to seal small wounds. If the injury is causing air to escape from your dog’s body, coat a gauze pad with Vaseline or Petroleum Jelly and place it over the wound to seal it. Transport your dog to the closest animal hospital or veterinary clinic immediately.

An Ice Pack can be used to treat burns. Use cold water or ice to sooth the injury and take your puppy to the nearest animal hospital or veterinary clinic immediately... but never put antibiotics, antiseptics or cortisone on burns that are suffered by your dog.
