18 Dog Disease Symptoms With Links to Further Help and Information

  1. Changes in behavior patterns– are common symptoms of dog disease. Butylated Hydroxanyisole (BHA) and Butylated Hydroxytoluene (BHT) are chemicals found in dog food that affect the nervous system and neurological development in regards to sleep and aggression.
  2. A loss of appetite– can be one of the best indicators of illness. However, it is often accompanied with other symptoms such as bowel trouble, nasal discharge or even depression. A dog will often ingest nutrients to help heal itself. A dog may be saying it does not feel its food source is adequate.
  3. Weight gain or loss– is another one of the biggest symptoms of dog disease. While some weight loss and gain is normal, excessive shifts can be the result of a grain based diet that promotes diabetes, hypoglycemia, obesity and thyroid problems.
  4. Feces and urine with unpleasant stench, discoloration or discharge– this diet related problem can result when the system has become bogged down from ingesting cooked fodder a dog’s system cannot gain nutrients from.
  5. Blood in feces and urine– is one of the most disconcerting symptoms of dog disease. While a few drops of blood are acceptable, large amounts can signify a rupture or infection. Dry foods promote chronic dehydration leading to kidney disease, infection and even chronic renal failure.
  6. Frequent vomiting and diarrhea– is a body’s way of ridding itself of an unsuitable, indigestible food source. In addition to rendered dead, diseased, dying and disabled animals, commercial foods contain thirty or more chemical preservatives and additives.
  7. Coat and skin– A dull or sparse coat with skin eruptions are major external symptoms of dog disease.  As the largest organ of the body, skin is where excess toxic chemicals and substances in a diet will go to be excreted.
  8. Dry nose– a dry cracked nose with or without discharge is likely a sensitivity resulting from too many chemicals in a diet.
  9. Ears– scratching or head shaking due to chronic ear infections are usually a sign of allergic reaction to additives in an unsuitable, low quality food source.
  10. Drinking too much water– is one of the biggest attention grabbing symptoms of dog disease as grain based foods with high sugar levels can promote diabetes, kidney or dog liver disease. Furthermore, dry foods are known to promote chronic dehydration.
  11. Limping– can be a result of a steady diet of commercial dog foods whose additives have depleted nutrients and promoted arthritis, weight problems, tendonitis, hip dysplasias or luxating patellas.
  12. Discharge– from the eyes, ears, anus or nose is a body’s way of removing infection causing foreign substances from the body.
  13. Bad breath– is often the result of canned foods or kibble that has stuck to teeth and gums and is feeding the bacteria in dental plaque. The result is often periodontal disease.
  14. Scratching, licking and chewing– it is hard to miss these symptoms of dog disease as a dog often cannot help but chew his or her paws, tail or legs to pieces. Ethoxyquin (EQ), a toxic preservative in pet foods is known for causing intense allergic reactions in addition to cancers, diarrheas and other maladies.
  15. Gas and bloating– bad smelling gas and bloating is the sign of a digestion process that is out of balance due to grains in an unsuitable food source.
  16. Coughing– is yet another one of the biggest symptoms of dog disease. It is often associated with kennel cough and other maladies. In an otherwise healthy dog, coughing helps to ease an irritated throat or airway due to an allergic reaction to additives in a low quality food source.
  17. Wheezing– can be a sign of respiratory distress prompted by a reaction to chemicals, drugs and pesticides such as DDT and other organo-phosphates that are commonly found in dead and diseased animals used for making dog food.
  18. Scooting– often indicates blocked anal glands, something that can lead to serious infection down the line when left to itself. It is one of the more common symptoms of dog disease; especially for canines fed a consistent diet of soft or canned foods.
