Common Dog Diseases - Symptoms, Cause and Treatment

All the articles in this category are written by qualified vets who describe various conditions in dogs that they see in their own clinics.  These items are useful for many reasons. They can give reassurance to someone who has a pet suffering with a particular disease, for example Diabetes mellitus in dogs, or they can advise on how conditions can be avoided, such as Hyperthermia in Dogs.  By describing some of the symptoms that occur, owners are made aware of when they should be seeking advice from their own vet, and will be less frightened by presenting signs such as those seen in Epilepsy in Dogs.
If you wish to know more about a disease or are concerned about a veterinary subject such as Dogs and Anaesthesia, look for the title highlighted in orange at the top of the page and click to get the information you require.
