An important part of caring for our Bullmastiffs is knowing what is “normal” and what isn't for each individual dog we own, so that we can catch any potential problems in their early stages.
The following checklist is by no means all-inclusive, but it's a good start. Hopefully having read this list something in the back of your mind will sound the warning bell should it ever be necessary.
Regularly handling and inspecting your dog from an early age will get them prepared for a visit to the Vet, it also aids the Vet in their diagnosis when the owner can give a history of changes of habit and behaviour.
It is useful to have the Vets phone number near or programmed into your telephone and to have a family plan of action in place should an emergency arise.
If you are ever worried, unsure or concerned about the condition of your dog at any time during the day or night then contact your Vet.
