    Teeth should be clean and white with no yellow plaque or tartar and there should not be a bad smell. There are products on the market for keeping teeth clean, but always get your vet to check the teeth if you are concerned,and clean if necessary. Also check for bleeding gums.

    Great list. Thanks.

    As a side note I'd add to look at your dogs poop when you're outside for signs of excess mucus and/or blood. A lot of digestive problems can be found this way. :thumbup:

    I am going to be a puppy owner for the first time in a couple of weeks and this kind of information is invaluable so thank you :)

    I also think that doing these daily checks helps you to get to know every part of your dog like you would your own baby :p I want to ensure that I know everything about my pup so I can give him the best of care!

    Great simple post.

    We have a poodle cross and we find keeping his fur shaved to a short level helps us work out if their are any skin problems.

    I have also found that using Omega 3 regularly has helped a lot with hot spots and foot itchiness for him.

    hi, wondering if anyone can help me, my dog Marley is a cross between a lab and a spaniel and is just under 2years old.
    We have only had him around 4months however he has been sick quite a few times. There was one day where he never kept anything down and was sick all day, recently this has been around once/twice a week in the morning and it just seems to be bile.
    Does anyone know a reason for this? he wretches for around 30seconds and then brings up the bile., he seems ok after this however?
    Has anyone had this with their pup or know of it?
    Any answers/comments or advice would be amazing!
    Thanks,
    Stacy[/FONT]

    Sounds similar to this maybe? http://www.petforums.co.uk/dog-chat/208269-should-i-worried.html

    If you have any concerns though I would take him to the vet for a check.

    Dogs can often bring up bile when their stomachs are empty. You also often see them eating certain types of grass to make themselves sick and bring up bile then almost instantly along with the grass. Dont know how many meals you have him on a day? But you could try perhaps giving him 3 smaller meals,
    or two and a little late supper or a few biscuits, to see if that does stop it.

    If the frequency carries on though and especially if you get whole day bouts of it again, then personally I would get him checked out at the vets. A bit of intermittent, infrequent bile occasionally is one thing, but too frequently and all day sicky bouts can be another.

    Such a great idea!
    It's a good idea to make a little check list, it is very helpful to notice the health of our dogs.
