Dogs Training Series Nursing A Sick Dog
By Alex Rocklane
I am bringing some more updated graphic related to
the dog training
Occasionally, dogs require extra attention when they are sick. If they have acquired an illness, an injury or have been through surgery, nursing will help his recovery. There are certain methods to effectively nursing a sick dog. It is a vital service you can provide to your sick pet.
A sick dog will often have a high fever that needs attention. Feed your dog bread pieces while avoiding heavy meat products. Stick to vegetarian meals during the initial stages of recovery. Chicken soup broth or beef broth is a good meat substitute until the fever breaks. As the dog regains strength, begin adding more solid and nutritious foods. Do not give a sick dog human food or junk food as these put more stress on his system.
The type of food and frequency you feed your dog will depend on what made him sick. If he had surgery or had some sort of blockage, be sure to check with your veterinarian as to proper feeding. If the digestive tract was involved, a special diet might be required.
Keep your dog comfortable in a calm area that is warm and away from drafts. Provide soft bedding. If arthritis is present, this will help tremendously. You can also purchase specially-designed bedding for dogs with arthritis.
After administering any medications, keep the dog quiet so they can have the maximum effect. Take time to sit with the dog and show some affection to help ease the stress his body and mind are enduring.
Do not raise the dog's head too much when administering the drugs as this can cause the medications to go into his respiratory organs, putting your dog at further risk of developing pneumonia.
Be sure to feed your dog warm fluids regularly during the recovery process. These will keep him hydrated and help fight infections. It will also help his body to better utilize any drugs that are prescribed.
If the dog has severe diarrhea, dehydration can occur. This can be combated by giving him a mixture of salt and glucose water. You can give your dog ice cubes or egg whites to help ease the oesophageal passage when vomiting is present.
Monitor the dog's body temperature. There are several thermometers available that you can use. Ask your veterinarian for one that he would recommend for your dog's particular condition.
Keep the dog in an area where the temperature can be regulated safely. Do not put your sick dog in front of a fan or an air conditioner as this will trigger further illness and possibly pneumonia. Put him in a well ventilated space where he feels comfortable and safe.
If the dog is suffering from hypothermia, provide him with warm blankets.
Give your dog all the attention you can spare. Knowing that you have not abandoned him will help him to get through the fear and stress of being sick. Do not try to play as he will not be strong enough or interested. Simply stroke him and show him you care. By providing physical contact, you will speed up his healing process.
