If you are thinking of having a pet dog or you already have one, you need to take care of your new family member properly. Here is your beginners guide to your puppers health.

To pet parents, our dogs aren't just animals, they are part of the family. Of course, this means that keeping them healthy and around for as long as possible is a crucial concern. Happily, you can find out the foundation of achieving this below, and they are so easy that even first time owners can get them right straight away. Keep reading to find out more.

Vaccinations & check-ups

Vaccinations and regular check-ups are an essential part of dog health that a responsible owner needs to provide. In fact, by leaving you pup unvaccinated, you absolutely leave them vulnerable to some very serious conditions like heartworm that could endanger their lives.

Regular check-ups at the vet are also crucial even when you don't think that anything is wrong. The reason being that the experts that work there are likely to have a much better knowledge of conditions that relate specifically to your dog's breed, and so can help spot them much earlier on. Something that often increases the chance that treatment will work, or if you are fortunate will head off head problems before they become a serious issue.

Nutrition & feeding

No matter what type of dog you have, you've probably noticed that they love their food and treats. Of course, there is a right way and a wrong way to feed your dog, and that latter nearly always leads to health problems.

The wrong way of feeding is when you buy the cheapest pet food you can, and supplement with high calorie treats, even feeding your dog with scrap off your own plate. Sadly such a diet will not only out your pup at risk of developing obesity and associated conditions like diabetes but can put them in immediate danger as well. The reason being that much human food like onions and chocolate can be incredibly bad for your dog and cause digestive upset and even worse.

To that end, one of the best things you can do for your dog's health is to invest in natural dog food to feed them with every day. The reason being that then you will not only be catering to their energy needs but also will be providing them with all the other nutrients they require to lead the happiest and healthiest of lives.

As they age

It's also important to recognize that the health of your dog will change as they age. After all, they won't need the same type of food or amount of exercise when they are elderly as they do when they are a puppy.

To that end, it's crucial that you find out what type of conditions your dog is vulnerable do as they age, including arthritis, hip dysplasia, diabetes, and the like. This will then allow you to watch out for any sign of these, as well as do all you can to minimize the likelihood that they appear in the first place.  Something that you can often do through diet, exercise, and even physical therapy. Thus allowing you to keep your dog as healthy as possible.
