Dog injuries to the feet, paw and foot of your dog.
Dog injuries can present itself in many ways. Is your dog showing pain, or limping, won’t eat for more than 24 hours, won’t get up out of his bed, then something is wrong and it might be something quite serious.
If your pet hasn’t eaten or will not drink water for more than 24 hours this is serious. Get him to the vet before he gets too dehydrated so that treatment with the proper medications can start to heal your dog. I can’t stress this enough.
Canine foot injuries account for many trips to the vet usually late at night or after 5 p.m. on a Friday? Or maybe it just seems that way!
Our dogs become ill or injured for a multitude a reasons. More serious is getting hit by a car or some other object, broken bones, ingesting something poisonous or hitting their head while playing.
Be safe and take your pet to the vet for dog injuries. You’ll be glad you did.
How much does it cost to take your dog to the vet?
Your canine should be taken to the vet once a year for a physical. The older the pet the more important this is.
An initial visit can vary. To take a dog in for a problem usually costs about $45.00 for a short visit.
If there is medication or tests to be done it will cost a lot more. And there are always tests that they have to make to determine if your dog has a serious problem.
If you don’t have a lot of money be sure to mention this to the vet. If the vet wants to take some “precautionary” x rays it can run up to be around $175.00. So do what I do and say, “let’s take one x ray and if that shows anything, we’ll take the rest. It worked for me!
Also medicines from the vet are expensive. This is how they make their living. Ask if you couldn’t get a prescription that you can fill at a drug store or a online store? Most times the vet will either write one for you to take to the drug store or charge you much less if you ask.
Remember you dog is one of the family. A good idea is to get pet insurance before your dog has any problems. Check with the insurance company to see what they will cover.
Here’s good luck and good health for your dog!
