Illness and medications for your pets

We are always hearing about the diseases of humans but do you all realize that our pets get the same diseases as we do. Many pets get cancer, diabetes, kidney disease, and that is just to name a few besides the heartworms, worms in general, fleas, ticks and that is just to name a few.

We have to have good vets to detect these diseases so they can get treated for as long as they can. Because our pets mean the world to us and we don’t want them to suffer an extended amount of time.

It is a shame that this happens but it does and we have to watch our pets closely. We have to watch for different signs and symptoms and call the vet and let him or her know what is going on with our pets.

Vet and animal hospital

That way the vet will know what to do next do so they will be able to tell you what to do next either bring them in or take them to the nearest animal hospital.

Because they need to examine your pet and run tests on it to see what is going on with your baby. And you cannot give up on your baby either and you have to stick with him/her.

Because they can sense change very easily and that won’t be good for their recovery no matter what it is. You have to stay strong for them. If we can stay strong for other family members then we can stay for them too.

There are many different kinds of medications for your pet that you can get from the vet or you can purchase many different kinds of medications from Amazon.com This medication is for diarrhea. Pets get that too and there is medication for it, you check with your vet first with any medication. You can get the medication both for the dogs and cats.

Different medications for different diseases

There are so many different medications for your pets today from what the vet prescribes for Flea and Tick, Heartworm Medication, Pain, Joint, Skin Coat, Vitamins, Dental, and Ear for both dogs and cats.

The medications are for any diseases from Allergy Relief, Antibiotics, Antifungal. Anxiety, Asthma, Compound Medications, Cough Relief, Digestive Support & Enzymes, Diuretics, Heart &  Blood Pressure, Hormonal Endocrine, Incontinence, Insulin & Diabetes, Nausea & Motion Sickness, Pain, Seizure & Epilepsy, Thyroid Medication, Urinary Tract & Kidney, and Wormers.

That is a lot of medications for both dogs and cats but in reality, they can get the same disease we humans can get and that is fact. Their medication can add up too to cost just as much as ours if not more.

We as humans don’t really think that our pets can get sick as we do, but there comes the reality check again. They can and they do get sick as we do, and there really isn’t anything we can do about that except continue to take care of them.

For as long as we can keep them as comfortable as possible. They are going to have their good days and bad days like the rest of us do. We have to take it as it comes and when it comes.

Making the choice of life and death

It is hard for us as pet parents to see them suffer and then we have to make the ultimate decision the hardest decision ever. We don’t want to because we love them so but we have to do it in their best interest.

We don’t know even how they get these disease, to begin with. All we know is that they get them and we have to understand that we can’t turn our backs on them because they are just as scared as we are if not more.

They don’t know what’s happening they just know that they are at the doctors and getting pinch and poked and that is all they maybe understand.

We as pet parents have to be there for them as they would be there for us in our time of need. This is just to give you some idea of what our pets medication entails as far as for what diseases they have.


Remember to adopt from your local shelter. They need love and homes too.

    I have been concerned about my best buddy of 7 years lately, he does seem very healthy yet but his breed usually only live about 10 years.

    I have planned his care from the day I brought him home, I only have fed him all natural chemical-free dog food and I make his doggy treats. I am doing all I can to lengthen his life as long as possible, and even though I have been trying to prepare myself the day he leaves me I will still take it hard.

      What kind of breed of dog is he? Okay, I understand what you are saying. Yes, it is very hard to let go of our pets because we love them so much but as long as he is healthy enjoy him and you are doing the right thing about his dog food and making homemade treats. But even though the vets tell us that only certain breed will last these many years the dogs surpass the length given to them. Just keep doing what you are doing for him and he may surprise you and live longer. You can’t think about the worse you have to think positive and not worry about when he will pass away. I realize that you will miss him terribly but, you may want to look into adopting another pet if something should happen to your pet. I always recommend getting another dog for companionship you are not replacing your pet you are just giving another pet a loving home. I know you will take it hard but I don’t mean any disrespectfulness by any means, but if something should happen to your pet get a bury bowl and plant a tree on top of the bury bowl and he will live through the tree and you will always have him with you. I hope this helps you out and please stop by again soon.
