Easiest Tip Ever

Posted on February 7, 2010. Filed under: 3. Trainer On Call | Tags: , |

My tip this week is one that is so easy, that I even take for granted.  

On a daily basis or at least weekly basis, give your pets a good “looking over.”  Look for any bumps, masses, torn nails, skin irritations.  Anything that looks out of place.

About 2 weeks ago, Dylan noticed that Faith had a growth in her ear.  She gets bumps every so often with her age, and I was aware she had a few little growths, but this one popped up quick.  I clean the dogs ears on a semi regular basis, and I had cleaned them not too long before.  And what seems like overnight, she developed a rather large “bump” on the inside of her ear.  It is bigger than the others on her skin, and seems to irritate her because she is scratching at it at times.

We tend to love on our pets and pet them, and not really notice the areas that we aren’t petting.  (like inside the ear)  So give your pets a good looking over every so often to catch the little  things that could develop before they become big problems.
