Dogs love their owners. They express this by being spunky around the owner. They will bark, jump all around, run, lick, and wag their tales furiously when their special person comes around. If for some reason you notice that your dog lacks this kind of enthusiasm, your dog maybe ill. Try throwing a stick or a ball or even try playing with your pet. If the dog simply looks at you and sits are lays down. It’s vet visit time.
2. Stops Eating
Which dog doesn’t love to eat? Dogs will chow down at any chance they get. If you notice that your dog refuses to eat or eats way too little food. There is always and underlining issue, meaning that the dog is not well. Examine your dogs mouth to see if everything looks OK, gently massage the animals throat to see if the dog feels any sort of discomfort. If the dog doesn’t react to feeling any physical pain, it surely is an underlining issue. Watch the dog for a day and see what happens. If he/she begins eating again, fine. If not, take your pal to the vet because your dog is sick.
3. Sleeping A lot
If you notice your dog doing way more sleeping than usual, the animal may not be feeling good. Dogs will catch cold as humans do and even may come across a fever which would cut their energy and let them behave a bit more docile. If you notice your dog sleeping much more often than usual, visit a vet and get the animal checked up on.
4. Whines and Curdles around You
Some dogs are really smart and will give you genuine signs that they are sick. They will come to you and do a bit of whining and simply curls up at your feet looking sad. We know that dogs are great actors too and will do this when they want a little treat or just try to solicit your attention. But try paying attention to those whining and see what the whine represents by giving your attention, giving the treat, or simply examining your canine pal.
5. Doesn't Bark at Other Dogs or The Mailman
Dogs love to hail or run each other off by barking their heads off. They also simply dislike the mailman or any other weird dressing character approaching your home. If you notice your dog isn't barking his/her head off at strange men, you can be sure your dog is sick.
