Dog Health: DIY Home Remedies, Warnings & Pet Safety Tips

No one knows your dog as well as you do.

So, if you begin to sense that your dog is just not acting like himself  (or if he is clearly sick or hurt) then it’s important that you find what is causing his discomfort and seek proper care and treatment as soon as possible.
