1.Foods dogs can't eat


Dogs and humans have different body structures.  Many foods that are delicious and healthy for humans are fatal to dogs. Many spices added to human cooking are very unsafe for dogs. 
Foods with heavy oil and salt will increase the burden on the dog’s body and increase the probability of pancreatitis. So try not to feed dogs human food. 

At the same time, don’t give our food to the dog when we are eating. This will form the habit of dogs like to disturb us when we eat.


Foods that dogs can’t eat:Onions, cocoa, chocolate, raw egg whites, pits, caffeine, pears, alcoholic beverages, Poultry bones, leeks, grapes, spices.


Sometimes when the owner eats fruits or snacks, he will give the dog a bite to taste. This behavior is usually harmless, but please check whether your own fruits or snacks are safe for the dog before feeding.

2.The fatal diseases of dogs are canine parvovirus, canine plague and coronary or any combination of them. 


Once these three diseases occur, treatment takes a lot of time and basically requires 24 hours of care and companionship from the owner. And the treatment fee is also very expensive. The fatality rate is very high, basically above 60%. 

The prevention methods for these three diseases are very simple, and they can be solved by vaccination. The vaccine is vaccinated for the first time when the dog is 2-3 months old. After that, depending on the type of vaccine, it will basically require replanting once a year or every few years. Please remember the time and don’t miss it. 

It is normal for some dogs to lose energy or sleep for a day after being vaccinated. It should be noted that some dogs will have an allergic reaction to the vaccine. After the vaccination, observe whether the dog's eyes and mouth are swollen and whether he has difficulty breathing. If symptoms develop, go to the hospital immediately.

Before the second dog vaccination is finished, please try not to go out with the dog. There are a large number of stray dogs on the road, and there are also many other pet dogs that have not been vaccinated.

3.Common puppy diseases-gastrointestinal diseases and allergies


Puppy has weak stomach, diarrhea, constipation, and vomiting are very common, but they should not be ignored. 

*If the diarrhea is watery, especially frequent, there is an obvious special smell or blood in the stool, if you suspect Canine parvovirus, please go to the hospital immediately. If you vomit frequently or vomit blood, if you suspect Canine parvovirus, please go to the hospital immediately


The cause of puppies’ diarrhea and vomiting is basically food. Some puppies don’t know how to control, which will lead to eating too much. If it is a soft stool, the puppy may have eaten too much, so give the puppy less food at the next meal. 

If the puppy has long-term diarrhea, consider changing the dog food. It may be that the dog food is too oily or of poor quality, causing diarrhea, or the puppy is allergic to a certain ingredient.

Changing the dog food period can easily lead to gastrointestinal sensitivity and diarrhea. The recommended transitional steps for changing dog food are: initially mix the new dog food and the old dog food in a ratio of 1:3 and feed them for about 3 days; in the mid-term, the ratio of the new dog food to the old dog food is 1:1, and feed them for about 3 days; The ratio of new dog food to old dog food is 3:1, and feed for about 2 days. It can be completely replaced with new dog food afterward.

4.Dog food and nutrition


Good dog food can provide enough nutrients and trace elements necessary for dog growth, so no special supplement is needed. If the economy is not well-off, it is recommended to spend most of the money on buying the best dog food within its power, no need to buy nutrition products especially. 
We understand that the novice owner raising a dog is like raising a child, for fear that the dog will not eat well and lack any nutrition. In fact, if the dog food you feed is qualified, don’t worry too much.
Nutritional supplements are an option that varies from person to person. I most recommend consulting a reliable veterinarian (a bad veterinarian would recommend the owner to buy a lot of nutritional products in his own store to increase income instead of starting from the dog’s own needs. ). If the dog has symptoms of nutritional deficiencies such as O-legs, eating shit, thinness, please consult a veterinarian immediately and supplement the diet.

5.Sterilization and socialization training


First of all, sterilization is only a minor operation, and the dog will recover within a week, and it will not cause a particularly big impact on the body. Generally, the price is not particularly expensive, and the cost of sterilization should have been taken into consideration when deciding to buy a dog. There are many disputes about sterilization, I can only say that the final decision depends on you.
Social training is very simple. The concept is to familiarize the dog with things around and relieve the behavioral deviation caused by fear and tension. Cars, high-rise buildings, other dogs, and unknown strangers are all sources of fear for dogs. Only when our dog sees more dogs and more people can he/she adapt slowly. 



Finally, I hope this article can help you in your daily dog care process.
Hope everyone's dogs can grow up healthy and happy!!!
