Pet expert issues warning and reveals the five urgent signs your dog might be sick and needs a trip to the vets | The Sun

A PET expert has issued an important warning and has revealed the five urgent signs that your dog might be sick.

Not only might your pooch be ill if you spot any of these signs, but it also means that your beloved furry friend needs a trip to the vets too. 

So if you’re a dog parent, you’ll need to listen up and pay attention immediately.

Posting on TikTok under the username @petlabco, the animal whizz shared the warning signs you should be aware of.

The expert said: “Five warning signs your dog might be sick.”

Alongside a variety of videos of adorable pooches, the social media user advised dog owners to look out for the following: “Lack of appetite, fishy smell, difficulty walking up the stairs, dull coat and bad breath.”

The expert then added the importance of getting a dog with any of these signs checked.

They added: “Make sure to check in with their vet if you notice any of these in your pet.” 

So according to this animal fan, if you recognise that your once energetic dog is struggling to get upstairs, or your once ravenous pet is barely excited by their dinner, it’s a good idea to get it checked out. 

And if your dog is kicking up a nasty smell or you have spotted changes in their coat, then it's important to let the vet know.
