Gilly visited the vet yesterday...
He's ready to be neutered and so we went in for a pre-operation check up. He's a healthy little pup now, but our vet stressed a few points related to maintaining his health. Among his advice was an easy way to help identify any future allergies: snap a picture of the ingredients of everything that you give your dog. Doing so, effortlessly builds a detailed register that can become extremely helpful if allergy symptoms ever appear.
Neither Pierogi nor Gilly have allergies now, but I like the advice and am going to start taking pictures. Plus, I also see three additional benefits from taking the time to snap photos: the information could rule out allergies by highlighting other patterns, confirm eligibility for food and treat recalls and inspire increased awareness about the ingredients.
What do think? Do you think this would be helpful? Does your dog suffer from allergies?
Woof! (Hey, there!) Pierogi, Gilly and Sarah here. Thanks for stopping by our dog blog. We're a little dog-obsessed around here and Pierogi & Co. is all about inspiring you to enjoy the dog days.
