This section is not intended as a substitute for the medical advice of veterinarians. Readers should regularly consult a veterinarian in matters relating to their dog’s health, and particularly with respect to any symptoms that may require medical attention.
In writing this section, we have described the signs and symptoms that will lead you to a preliminary idea of what is happening with your dog, so you can weigh the severity of the problem. Knowing when to call your veterinarian is very important. Delays can be dangerous.
At the same time, we have sought to provide guidance for the acute or emergency situations that you must handle on your own until you can get your dog to a veterinarian. Life-saving procedures such as artificial respiration and heart massage, and what to do in the event of poisonings, obstetrical problems, and other emergencies are explained step by step. But our veterinary section is not a substitute for professional care.
Advice from the internet can never be as helpful or as safe as actual medical advice. DogShaadi cannot replace the hands-on examination that enables a veterinarian to make a speedy and accurate diagnosis. However, the knowledge provided in this section will enable you to more effectively cooperate and better understand your interactions with your veterinarian. You’ll be more alert to the signs of health problems and better able to describe them.
You’ll know more about basic care for your dog, and you’ll be prepared in an emergency.
