If you are concerned about your pet, simply enter a few details about them and their condition, and you will be given a list of possible causes (that you may not have thought of, along with the suggested treatments. In other words, there may be something that you can do yourself.
The upside too, is that it may negate the need for expensive tests, overnight stays, and emergency callouts in some cases.
The owner of a dog saw that their pet was suffering from diarrhoea and was often being sick. It was a puzzle, as the dog was fed on regular dog food. He often had titbits from the dinner table (naughty) but it would be chicken, or meat from the casserole etc.
A visit to the vet would involve a checkup, anti-sickness medication, and perhaps blood tests, before putting the pet on a special, expensive diet with ongoing medication – many hundreds of pounds initially, with ongoing monthly costs.
The owner decided to use the free, no strings attached PetCheckup program, and they checked out the Dog Blog. She discovered the cause of the problem – the casserole contained garlic, and as such, the titbits were laced with a substance poisonous to dogs.
Problem solved and the pet recovered quickly, without the need for treatment and diagnosis.
