Progress Chart

Keep a chart or notebook on the dog's progress. It will be especially useful when you report to the veterinarian over the telephone. Make daily entries on the chart of the dog's temperature, dosages of medicine, symptoms and other pertinent information that will be useful to the veterinarian.

Observing the dog's general condition

Make a habit of noticing the dog's general condition. Here are some features to look for:

Breathing: Is the dog's breathing rapid? Slow? Strained? Gasping? Irregular?

Bowel movements: How are the dog's bowel movements? Are they loose? Diarrhea? Bloody? Is he constipated?

Eyes: Are the eyes inflamed? Is there a discharge? Are they weeping? Dull? Bright? Are the eyes affected by light?

Muscular control: Is the dog very weak? Can he turn over? Is he paralyzed? Can he move his legs?

Appetite: How is the dog's appetite? Is it poor? Fair? Good? Fussy? Or does he have no appetite?

Urinary system: Can the dog empty his bladder? How is the urine? Is it colorless? Amber? Dark? Bloody? Does he urinate frequently or sparsely?

Add to these any other symptoms which you notice and that will be of value to the veterinarian in determining the dog's progress.
