GoodPooch, an online resource for dog lovers, has published excellent information on dog health conditions. Specifically, these include: diarrhea, ear mites, and hot spots on dogs. As a valuable online resource, GoodPooch also helps dog lovers by offering a way to easily find a veterinarian through an online directory they list on their website. Those who want to find a veterinarian near them will just need to enter their ZIP code to discover a nearby veterinary clinic. People can also specify how close the clinic should be to their home.

Steve Miller, a spokesperson for GoodPooch says, “Aside from being a website for dog lovers, we strive to provide important information on dog’s health. We suggest dog owners review these informative topics regarding dog health issues, which currently discusses diarrhea, ear mites, and hot spots. You can expect us to add more valuable information regarding dog health conditions each month.”

how to get rid of ear mites in dogs

Regarding diarrhea in dogs, this condition can be a one-time occurrence due to eating spoiled food or a serious symptom of an undetected illness. Although diarrhea may be a commonplace condition for some pets who have IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), it is recommended that dog owners examine the fecal matter and closely monitor their dog for additional symptoms to ensure it is just a one-time occurrence. There are many possible causes of diarrhea in dogs, which include nervousness or stress; introduction of a new diet or medication; consumption of poisonous or inedible objects or vegetation; allergic reactions; parasites such as hookworm, roundworm or whipworm; pancreatitis; bacterial or viral infections; and diseases affecting the thyroid, liver, or gastrointestinal tract. The diarrhea remedy for dogs may include medications, a blend of supplements, or a 12-to-24 hour fast from the dog’s usual diet. GoodPooch always recommends taking your dog to the vet in case it is something serious for the correct treatment.

Another problem that dogs may have are ear mites. Ear mites have the scientific name of Otodectes cynotis and belong to the arachnid family. They are virtually invisible to the naked eye, and one of the surefire ways of determining whether ear mites are present in a dog’s ear is examining a sample of the discharge through a microscope. Common indications of their presence include constant shaking of the head; secretion of brownish or reddish clumps from the ears; clawing, scratching, or pawing at the ears; cuts and scratches around the ears; and inflamed, reddened ears. This condition may require a consultation with a vet. Dog owners will need to follow what is recommended or prescribed. However, one of the first steps that can be taken is to completely flush out the ears with a canine-approved solution. Talk to your vet and ensure the proper wash is used so damage is not caused to the canal and eardrum.

Meanwhile, hot spots on dogs are reddened, raw blisters on the body and are often the result of stress, allergic reactions, or bacterial infections. Hot spots are also called acute, moist dermatitis, and they can get worse if left untreated. This means if it is not provided with proper treatment, the hot spots can spread quickly and worsen. Hot spots may also be a condition that is self-inflicted by the dog. For instance, an irritation on the dog’s skin can cause the dog to lick, chew or dig at the source of the irritation. These irritants can be allergens or an undetected infection. The result is that the hot spots will usually have a worrisome and alarming appearance, particularly if they are not treated as soon as possible. In order to get rid of hot spots, dog owners should bring their dog to the vet. They may also need to have the dog’s wound cleaned, shaven and kept sanitized while it is healing. Anti-inflammatory medicinal ointments and creams may be prescribed, too. Natural remedies like aloe vera or honey may soothe the area.
