Dogs are humans' best friends - at least, every dog owner would likely agree with this statement. It's no wonder that we place great importance on the well-being of our four-legged companions. However, sometimes it's not so easy. Many diseases can affect the well-being of dogs, significantly reduce their quality of life, or even become life-threatening without the appropriate treatment.

Which diseases are common in dogs?

The most common ailment among our four-legged friends is infestations with so-called ectoparasites. This includes ticks, fleas, or mites. These tiny insects attach themselves to the dog's skin or fur and feed on their blood. Apart from the itching that accompanies the bites and stings, these parasites also transmit some diseases, which rank second among the most common canine ailments: Lyme disease, Babesiosis, and Leishmaniasis. While all three can be treated, they are not curable. They can lead to symptoms like fatigue, fever, joint pain, and loss of appetite, potentially causing a long period of suffering for our four-legged companions.

The third most common problem for our pets is endoparasites, which are parasites that live inside their host's body, such as worms. Signs of infestation can include itching around the rear end, diarrhea, or a bloated belly. In some cases, certain types of worms may even be visible in the feces with the naked eye.

Other health conditions that dog owners should be aware of include allergies, sensory organ disorders like ear infections or cataracts, as well as joint malformations, such as hip or elbow dysplasia.


The spectrum of equine diseases is wide. Here's an overview of some typical illnesses.

Please note that in acute cases, poisoning can be life-threatening, and every minute counts! If you suspect that your furry companion has ingested something toxic, please head to your veterinarian or the nearest animal clinic immediately.


Acute poisoning usually occurs as a result of ingesting poisoned food or substances that are incompatible with dogs. Unfortunately, there are cases where people deliberately lay out poisoned baits, combining tasty meat with toxins. Therefore, it's best to train your dog from the beginning not to ingest anything when outdoors. Another danger comes from incompatible foods, with chocolate being a classic example that often ends up in dogs' stomachs due to ignorance.

Apart from these acute cases, there are also other factors that can lead to gradual poisoning. These include chemical substances or medications used to combat or prevent other illnesses (such as vaccines or spot-on products), environmental influences, or pollutants that the dog may come into contact with.

Normally, dogs are capable of metabolizing and eliminating these toxins from their bodies through their kidneys and liver. However, if harmful influences become overwhelming, for example, due to prolonged antibiotic use or if the dog's immune system is compromised, it can lead to the symptoms mentioned above. Since the process is gradual, it is often particularly challenging for dog owners to identify poisoning as the cause.


If you suspect that your dog is suffering from an excess of toxins, you can consider detoxification. Various aspects should be taken into account for this purpose.

The gut is where a significant portion of the immune system is located in the body. Therefore, any treatment for poisonings, which often involve symptoms like diarrhea and vomiting, should also include addressing the gut. Gut restoration with well-matched probiotics and prebiotics can help restore balance in the digestive system.

Additionally, there are several natural herbs known for supporting the liver and kidneys, as well as binding and eliminating toxins from the body. A homeopathically trained veterinarian, an animal naturopath, or a nutritionist can provide recommendations tailored to your furry friend's symptoms.


The treatment of poisoning can be lengthy and often comes with many dietary restrictions. That's why, for many dog owners, it makes more sense to take preventive measures to avoid the need for detoxification altogether. In such cases, specific triggers can lead you to support your furry companion's healthy metabolism with appropriate supplements.

For instance, it is known that the administration of antibiotics disrupts the balance of bacteria in the gut. So, if your dog needs antibiotic treatment, you can proactively support gut health afterward. Similarly, the same approach can be applied to other substances like vaccines, deworming treatments, or preparations for keeping ectoparasites at bay.

Alternatively, you may opt for a product that can be given on an ongoing basis, effectively serving as a permanent booster for your pet's immune system. In this case, the liver and kidneys are consistently supported, regardless of potential toxin exposure, reducing the risk of poisoning.
