The Pet Spa at Soap.Club, a leading supplier of premium quality natural pet shampoo, based out of Vaughan, Ontario, Canada, sheds light on the most common ailments that plague the modern canine.

The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) provides statistics supporting evidence that the pet population in the U.S. is climbing, but visits to veterinarians are declining. Jack Widmer, manager of The Pet Spa at Soap.Club submits that “It is vitally important for dog parents to understand that preventive health care is crucial to the long term welfare of their best friends". The following are five of the most common canine health ailments:


Data shows that 54% of dogs in The United States are obese. Obese dogs have a shorter lifespan and face an increased risk of arthritis, diabetes, high blood pressure, kidney disease, certain cancers, and heart & respiratory disease.


The climb in reported incidents of canine diabetes is likely tied to the rise of the obesity epidemic. Chances of prevention increase dramatically by maintaining an ideal body weight through prescribing scientifically formulated nutritional products. Canine diabetes can be treated; management involves injecting insulin once or twice daily under the skin and monitoring response to treatment.

Hot Spots

Commonly known as hot spots, the medical term for this bacterial skin infection is acute moist dermatitis. These bare, inflamed, red areas are very uncomfortable and irritating to a pet and usually cause the dog to scratch or chew the affected area. Dogs that are not groomed regularly and have matted dirty coats can be prone to developing hot spots. Many dog lovers have discovered the multiple benefits of using a natural pet shampoo and conditioner in the bathing regime of their loyal companion. “The Pet Spa Hypoallergenic Pet Shampoo and Conditioner contains no harsh chemicals and is formulated to hydrate and nourish the pet`s dry or sensitive skin while relieving irritation and itchiness” according to Widmer.

Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease can cause multiple problems in the oral cavity, which in turn may cause collateral damage in other parts of a dog’s body. Periodontal disease has been associated with systemic failing kidney function, damage to internal organs, and has also been connected to endocarditis and heart muscle problems.


Breed is strongly associated with specific types of cancer. Pugs commonly develop a skin tumor known as a mast cell tumor, and Golden Retrievers are prone to lymphoma. Annual examinations and blood tests by the family veterinarian will help to detect tumors while they are still easily treatable.

Mr. Widmer advises; "Routine veterinary check-ups should be a part of any pet health management system”. Early detection allows intervention before medical problems cause serious disease.
