If you decide to make the commitment to owning a dog you really have to understand that this is for life. Don’t be one of those people who love puppies but as soon as they lose that baby appeal they are discarded or uncared for. I could never imagine doing that to my dog. She’s part of my life; part of my past and definitely part of my future. She’s family.
Have you ever realized how expensive it is to pay a visit to the vet? It kills me when my dog is sickly or hurt as it is and then I have to endure the enormous vet bill. I was always told that it’s because the animals can’t say where they are sick and the vet needs to figure that out. A human doctor has the perks of the patient pointing out where is hurts.
A professional vet who really is in the business to help pets rather than just make a quick buck will give your dog the best care and attention. Yes, they will provide medication and aids at times but they will ensure the equipment and medicine is top-notch while keeping the costs affordable. At the end of the day you furry child is worth every penny.
It is extremely difficult to keep a dog with a broken leg from moving that leg. They can’t understand when you explain why it must be kept still, they aren’t human after all. It is their nature to get excited and jump around when they see you. It is your duty as their owner to do what’s best for them and to ensure they heal in the best way possible with as little pain as possible. Leg braces for dogs are a brilliant innovation. Your dog still has mobility but that damaged leg is kept immobilized. Before you know it your pooch will be back to fighting fit and ready for that long walk in the park or playing that game of fetch she loves so much.
Find out from your local vet what the best options are and spend that little extra. Your pet is worth its weight in gold to your family and a part of the circle that cannot be ignored.
