If you’re a new dog owner you’ll need to know what checks to perform on your dog on a daily/weekly basis. Keeping an eye out for early signs of medical problems is one of the most important things you can do for your dog, and could save you a lot of stress, time and money in the long run – not to mention your dog’s health. Here’s a list of 10 checks to perform regularly.
1. Body Check
On a weekly basis you should be (whilst grooming if appropriate for your breed) performing a full body check of your dog. Gently run your hands over every part of your dogs body and check for lumps, cuts, inflammation and any signs of discomfort.
