All Natural Remedies For Dogs That You Can Use At Home

By Beth Collins

Finding natural remedies for your dog may be an important consideration for you if you’ve felt burdened by the expense of being a dog owner. The first year of a dog’s life is especially expensive when you factor in all the vet bills, medications, tests along with the equipment you have to buy and the cost of puppy school. I began my quest to find alternative methods for treating my dog almost as soon as we brought him home.

The first time I paid a $500 bill after my dog had a bought of diarrhea, I vowed to find alternative treatments for him. The tests and medications sure added up quickly and it turned out that there was nothing wrong with him. It’s best to be on the safe side but my wallet didn’t feel very safe after that. My dog was otherwise behaving normally when he had the diarrhea. He was still full of energy and eating normally. In retrospect, it may have been because he was teething at the time.

In the case of diarrhea, if your dog or puppy is not otherwise behaving normally then take him straight to the vet. If he is behaving normally, then there are natural remedies for dogs that can cure this problem. You can save yourself a lot of unnecessary expense by investigating ways to treat your pet at home for common ailments.

In addition, some vets may over prescribe medications that can harm your pet over the long term. At one stage my dog had an ear infection and the vet recommended a particular brand of ear drops and putting them in his ears twice per day for 2 weeks. Well, the ear infection cleared up but the medication caused a lot of irritation to my dog’s ears. Even after two weeks, the poor little guy was still very uncomfortable. We cured one problem and caused another – the irritation from the medication. It was at that point that we consulted another vet with a very good reputation who recommended we only use the medication as needed.

The point is that many dog ailments can be treated successfully at home just like many human illnesses can. By investigating alternative treatments, you can save yourself money as well as time. If your pet becomes ill on the week-end when your veterinarian’s office is closed, you may have to take him to a pet hospital which is extremely expensive or, wait until Monday when your vet’s office is open again. If you become informed on how to treat your pet with natural remedies, then you can help your dog to feel more comfortable in a shorter span of time.

I’ve learned the hard way that many dog illnesses don’t require a visit to the vet. Save yourself time, money and headaches by visiting Natural Remedies for Dogs to get answers to your dog health questions. You’ll also discover how to potty train a dog in 7 days or less.
