Even though your four-legged buddy is unable to express his internal issues with you, he still gives you some indications that something is wrong and they need your assistance. We shouldn’t ignore those warning signs and should take them to the veterinarian as soon as possible.
That‘s normal when behavior of a dog changes with their age but if it’s not their age then there might be some other problem that your pooch might be facing. For example behavior changes such as hallucinations, seizures and aggression are the symptoms of Encephalitis, a condition that leads to an inflammation of the brain. If you notice any of these symptoms then you should immediately consult with a veterinarian.
Excessive Drinking Of Water
Your dog's excessive thirst may also be a cause for concern. The recommended daily water intake for dogs is 20 to 40 ml per pound of body weight. It also depends on things like meals, hot temperatures, and strenuous exercise. If he/she is drinking significantly more than usual, it may be because of an underlying health issue that is causing him to lose fluids more quickly than usual.
Dog’s bad breath can be caused by a variety of issues, including dental and gum issues. Dog kidney disease, on the other hand, may be the worst-case scenario for unpleasant breath. Although, it is not certain that dogs with bad breath will eventually be diagnosed with a kidney ailment, this is something that needs our attention.
Peeing In The House
It's not always a sign of bad behavior if your dog starts to urinate in the house or other inappropriate spots; it could be the result of a urinary tract infection. It is also one of the most frequently observed health issues in dogs and one of the most frequent causes of improper urinating.
Eating Less Than Usual
While most dogs are food enthusiasts and constantly get excited while they are eating, so if your doggy is not eating well, then we must pay attention to the causes which can be decreased appetite, dental issues, or side effects of medication (if taking any). We must ensure that we are giving him high-quality food that he enjoys. If you have made any changes in your dog's food and he hasn't been eating well afterwards, it is likely that he doesn't like his new food.
