The appearance of a pet in your family is not only joy and fun, but also a whole bunch of worries and troubles. Responsibility for the upbringing of the puppy and his health lies entirely on the shoulders of the owner.
First of all, the puppy should be given all the necessary vaccinations. Make them better in state veterinary clinics.
Only in this case, you can be sure of the quality of the vaccine and its proper storage and proper transportation. During the period of the planned vaccination, the puppy must be healthy and feel good, and before the planned vaccination, it is necessary to remove the worms from the dog. It is necessary to strictly follow the schedule of vaccinations, which will be established by the manufacturer of the vaccine. After vaccinations, it is necessary to observe quarantine for two weeks, which will allow the puppy to develop immunity.
Even if all vaccinations are held during there is some likelihood that a puppy to infect the virus. This is due to a decrease in immunity in autumn and spring, as well as during the period of food change and other stresses and ailments. The disease enteritis is especially terrible for puppies up to a year.
The main symptoms of enteritis are vomiting and diarrhea. If these signs appear, you should immediately consult a veterinarian. Enteritis disease is accompanied by lesions of the gastrointestinal tract and inflammation of the myocardium. Puppies are more susceptible to enteritis than adult dogs. According to statistics, about half of adult dogs die after infection with enteritis, while almost all puppies die. Also, the owner should be alerted by the sluggish state of the puppy. With enteritis, your pet may not only refuse any food, but also not drink water at all.
As a result, dehydration of the body may occur, as a result of which the dog may die.
There is no cure for enteritis. Currently, treatment is reduced to the elimination of symptoms. The most important are drugs that support the work of internal organs. In addition, veterinarians inject sick dogs with drugs that increase immunity to the enteritis virus. After the treatment has worked, do not immediately overfeed the puppy. The intestines of a puppy after an illness looks like a continuous bleeding wound, so it is enough just to give the dog water.
After recovery, do not relax. In good conditions, the virus can exist for a very long time. It is advisable to sanitize the entire room.
