Antibiotics treat infections caused by bacteria. They don’t help with infections caused by other bugs such as viruses.
Dogs are very curious and eat some extremely strange things. Unfortunately, some of these items get lodged in their guts and cause a blockage.
If your dog has a skin allergy, diarrhoea or symptoms of IBD your vet might ask you to carry out a food trial at home in case their symptoms are triggered by something in their food.
Appetites do vary between dogs but if your dog’s eating habits have changed it’s often a sign of a problem.
It’s very important to keep your dog’s teeth clean by brushing them regularly. Dental problems can be very painful and if left untreated can cause other problems.
