Why is my Doberman acting weird?

Traumatic events may have caused a fear response in your dog, which may cause him to avoid you or other people. Extremely traumatic events can make your dog feel unsafe around you, even if you had nothing to do with it. Examples of traumatic events include: being hit by a car, being attacked by another dog, being abused by a human, and more.

If your dog is fearful, but you can’t remember a traumatic event, it may have happened when you weren’t around. Did you recently leave the dog with someone else, or could he have had a traumatic experience while he was home alone? In this case, it is best to consult professionals.

For puppies that overeat

If they eat too much or eat the wrong things, consider the following:

  • Stop it before it starts – Cut off the supply of your dog by keeping food out of his reach, as well as non-food things he might like. Also, try to correct their behavior through training so they stop expecting extra food. While some breeds are particularly prone to chewing and begging, almost all dogs can learn to control themselves.

Comforting a Dog With Pancreatitis

Once you have met with your veterinarian and planned your dog’s pancreatitis treatment, you can comfort him by creating soft surfaces for him in which to rest Whether it’s the couch, the bed, or a memory foam dog bed, almost anything is better than the floor for comforting a dog with pancreatitis.

Bloat is one of the most serious explanations for a dog struggling to feel comfortable. The clinical name of the condition is gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV) syndrome. When a dog bloats, his stomach swells and twists, a dangerous situation that can cause severe abdominal pain. Symptoms of swelling include:
