Can you understand me?

Thanks to Dr Greg from Subiaco Vet for some more tips!

 When I wag my tail – I am smiling!  But, if my tail is high and wagging slowly, I am feeling confident and friendly, whereas if I hold my tail low and wag it rapidly, it means i am a little nervous.
 When I am scooting or dragging my bottom on the ground I am itchy and probably have blocked anal glands. Mum knows to take me to Dr Greg.
 Licking – Most common reasons for licking ourselves and other dogs is that they taste good, and we are trying to show affection
 WHen you arrive home and I bring you a toy I am giving you a gift that I think you will like. It is a sign of my affection.

Don’t let me get fat over winter please

Tips from Dr Greg from Subiaco Vet Clinic

 Feed only the recommended pet food, with no other leftovers, scraps, snacks or treats
 Wiegh me regulatly and record results, ideally charting progress over time
 Ensure that only one person feeds me
 Get a new, smaller feed bowl
 Always measure the food using scales or a cup measure
 Feed on a little and often basis, dividing the food into 2 to 4 meals
 Remove any uneaten food after ten to fifteen minutes
 Exercise and play are better rewards than food!
