As the owner, you are generally the first to notice when your dog shows signs of illness. These can manifest, for example, as unusual behaviour, a reduction in food consumption or a change in appearance.
Any signs you may notice do not necessarily mean your dog is unwell but you should be vigilant. Many illnesses begin with inconspicuous symptoms. If you examine your dog more closely, you have a good chance of discovering signs of illness in good time and getting treatment at an early stage.
The best way to check your dog is to examine it systematically, following a specific order. If you examine your pet regularly, paying attention to the following points, you will know their normal state and can then quickly identify changes. Furthermore, your dog will then be used to the checks and will be more willing to be examined even if in pain.
Regular checks give you peace of mind
