The 10 most common dog diseases

Many typical dog diseases are very similar to those of humans. For example, four-legged friends often suffer from gastrointestinal, eye, ear, nose and throat or organ diseases. Or tumors and parasites. This list shows the ten most common dog diseases:

1. Gastrointestinal diseases:

Typical symptoms of dog diseases that affect the gastrointestinal tract are vomiting, diarrhea or constipation. Dogs are omnivores. That's why it often happens that they eat something that they can't tolerate or that even harms them. Parasites can also cause gastrointestinal problems. Stomach torsion in dogs is an acute emergency that requires immediate surgical intervention by the vet. Symptoms include a bloated stomach, gagging and restless behavior.

Tradidog can help protect the gastrointestinal tract through the special mucilage in our linseed. These mucilages lay a delicate protective layer over the sensitive organs of the stomach and intestines. In addition, the fiber in the bran, together with the mucilage, supports the binding of bacteria and other pathogens in the body in order to eliminate them.

In the case of Tradidog SENSITIVE, we go one step further by helping the dog build a healthy gastrointestinal flora by introducing postbiotic bacteria. These good bacteria gradually replace the harmful ones. During this adjustment phase, our SENSITIVE herbal mixture also helps to alleviate acute symptoms.

2. Parasites

Dogs are particularly susceptible to ticks, fleas, worms and mites. As a rule, parasites are not life-threatening for four-legged friends. However, they can transmit serious diseases such as Lyme disease. Fleas are often carriers of tapeworms. Tick, mite or flea infestations usually manifest themselves as skin rashes. Intestinal parasites can be responsible for dog diseases such as giardia. Such an infection can cause diarrhea and vomiting in dogs.

Unfortunately, neither CLASSIC nor SENSITIVE nor any other currently available products have the ability to effectively combat parasites. Nevertheless, we are working intensively on developing a herbal mixture that can serve as a natural defense solution against parasites. It is crucial to note that when medication is used to combat parasites, the dog is optimally prepared for this stress and the pressure on the dog's body can be quickly reduced after medication treatment. In this context, Tradidog can help reduce the strain on the body with its special linseeds and mucilage.

3. Allergies

It is impossible to predict when and why a dog will develop allergies. Among other things, fleas and mites cause allergies in four-legged friends. Certain foods can also cause allergic reactions such as skin rashes, hair loss or itching. But: Unlike people, dogs do not develop respiratory problems if they are allergic. Hay fever, for example, manifests itself as hay itching.

Tradidog can help your dog relieve the symptoms and effects of allergies. The OMEGA-3 fatty acids it contains are an effective way to reduce inflammation and discomfort caused by allergies. Still, it's important to emphasize that it's essential to have your dog's allergy checked by a veterinarian. It is advisable not to change the entire basic feed immediately. Often your dog just needs certain nutritional supplements to the basic food, similar to people.

There is also the possibility that a generally healthy dog's body is less prone to developing allergies. We are currently conducting a study to demonstrate that the postbiotic bacteria contained in Tradidog SENSITIVE and SENIOR may be effective against allergic reactions.

4. Rashes

Many dogs have sensitive skin. A widespread problem is skin inflammation due to allergic reactions (atopic dermatitis). The cause of this is often contact with allergy-causing substances or an infestation with ectoparasites - i.e. parasites that live on the surface of the host. Lack of grooming can also cause skin rashes in dogs.

Tradidog can naturally reduce skin rashes thanks to its OMEGA-3 fatty acids, which have anti-inflammatory properties. Your dog's balanced OMEGA-3 levels allow him to regulate himself and fight inflammation. In addition, your dog benefits from the mucilage, which forms a protective barrier in the gastrointestinal tract and can efficiently remove allergens.

For cases of severe and recurring itching and rashes, Tradidog SENSITIVE offers additional support with its anti-inflammatory herbal formula to help your dog fight his discomfort.

5. Teeth

Without proper dental care, dogs also develop dental problems, for example due to tartar. There are special chewing snacks and bones that promise prophylaxis. However, such “Dentastix” often contain a lot of sugar, which in turn can lead to obesity. Dog owners cannot avoid brushing their teeth with a toothbrush.

Unfortunately, Tradidog cannot protect against tartar, but we can ensure that your dog has a vital body with our OMEGA-3 fatty acids and special herbal mixtures. This can also have a positive effect on healthy gums, among other things. Healthy gums are just as important as good teeth for your active dog's health and enjoyment of life.

6. Weight problems

Obesity is more common in dogs than weight loss. This can lead to cardiovascular problems or diseases such as diabetes mellitus. Important to know: Your dog usually won't stop eating if you keep putting food in front of him. It is therefore important as an owner to ensure that the dog has a balanced diet and gets regular exercise.

Weight problems are a common problem not only in humans but also in dogs in today's society. Various studies have shown that the lack of OMEGA-3 fatty acids in our diet can be a reason for the increasing number of overweight people.

This imbalance is also found in dogs. It is therefore very important to keep the OMEGA-3 balance in balance so that the body can regulate itself. The high amounts of plant-based OMEGA-3 in all versions of Tradidog can help prevent cardiovascular disease and also reduce the risk of diabetes. The right diet in the right amount is the key to avoiding such problems.

If your dog is already overweight, this is not necessarily due to the amount of food, but can also be due to a lack of essential nutrients, which slows down your dog's metabolism and builds up energy reserves. Therefore, make sure you take the right nutritional supplements and promote healthy liver function. A healthy liver is crucial for the proper functioning of the entire body. Our BOOST herbal blend supports your dog in maintaining healthy liver function.

7. Herniated disc

Smaller dogs in particular suffer from a herniated disc, the so-called gelatinous nucleus of an intervertebral disc breaking through the fibrous ring. Hence the well-known term “dachshund paralysis”. If this gelatinous nucleus presses on nerves, severe pain may result. Because of their long backs, dachshunds are predisposed to herniated discs. Dachshund paralysis occurs in all dog breeds.

8. Hip joint dysplasia

This orthopedic canine condition, a misalignment of the hip joint, is often a problem in larger breeds. It can cause great pain and restricted movement for the animals.

9. Cataracts

Cataracts are one of the most common dog diseases in old age. The eye disease can be treated by surgically removing the cloudy lens. However, the decision for or against the operation should be carefully considered. Dogs can get along very well with their other senses, which are much more developed than humans. For example, they hear and smell much better than we do. Therefore the eye is not their primary sensory organ.

10. Ear infection

A common dog disease is otitis. The ears become inflamed due to bacteria, fungi or parasites. A dark brown mass forms in the inner ear and the ear smells unpleasant. See a veterinarian who will prescribe appropriate medication and show you how to clean your dog's ears.
