Some Common Ailments Of The Dog And Their Treatment

The experienced dog-owner has long ago realised that cleanliness,

wholesome food, judicious exercise and a dry, comfortable and

well-ventilated kennel are the surest safeguards of health, and that

attention to these necessaries saves him an infinitude of trouble and

anxiety by protecting his dogs from disease. On the first appearance

of illness in his kennels the wise dog-owner at once calls in the

skill of a good veterinary surgeon, but there are some of the minor

ailments which he can deal with himself whilst he ought at least to be

able to recognise the first symptoms of the dreaded Distemper and give

first aid until the vet. arrives to apply his remedies and give

professional advice.
