WE DISCUSS THE IMPORTANCE OF MAINTAINING YOUR DOG’S WELL-BEING AND HOW THIS GOES BEYOND JUST CARING FOR THEM, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU HAVE AN ASSISTANCE DOG, IN ORDER TO ETHICALLY WORK YOUR DOG AND MAXIMISE THEIR LIFESPAN
Although we obviously recommend seeking veterinary attention, getting traditional help etc. for any issues or concerns you have as you would with a pet, when you have an assistance dog, you become heightened to their every issue, any change etc. You get to know them so well that any signs of change are incredibly evident and thus you end up needing to know about a lot more than you might with a pet dog.
It’s no joke; knowing about common medical conditions, symptoms, allergies, poisonous foods/chemicals and more can be the difference between life and death for your dog.
We also discuss dog grooming and hygiene, as well as the importance of having a dog-specific first aid kit in your home and on the go.
