The Importance Of Physical Examination
Of Your Dog For A Healthy Long Life

The importance of the physical examination need not be underestimated in case of dogs.

Simple but systematic physical examination techniques may diagnose most of the disorders in dogs.

Hence, without physical examination of the dog, one should not resort to knowing the status of your dog's health.

Simply observe the dog with scratching. Catch the dog and simply separate the hair material from the itching site.

To the surprise you may come across a big wound in the scratched site.

The wound might be the main reason for the scratching of the dog at that site.



However, one has to rule out the occurrence of wound by severe itching itself.



Many times, when the scratching dog is examined physically, one can come across plenty of lice infestation or tick problem in the skin and coat.

The parasitic condition might not be diagnosed at all if one has not carried out the physical examination.

Similarly, the dog may reveal the signs of pain when the physical examination is carried out by deep palpation technique.

The dog show signs of pain when the dog is examined at the stomach or the back regions.

Even if it is possible that by pressure based palpation, one can detect the acute renal disorders in the affected dogs turn to the examined site at the region of kidney or at the back region.

The dog affected by the Cystitis with severe retention of urine is often diagnosed by mere physical examination.

The filled bladder together with signs of pain during the examination at the site of urinary bladder indicates that the animal is affected by Cystitis.

Auscultation of the heart in both right and left sides helps to rule out the abnormal heart sounds and the pulmonary area based auscultation reveals the respiratory system disorder like pneumonia.
