The sad reality is that many dogs pass away prematurely due to preventable disease. Listed here are the top 5 leading causes of death in dogs, and how Actijoy dog products can aid in early detection or prevention.
Kidney disease occurs when a dog’s kidneys no longer properly filter waste products from the blood or maintain necessary hydration. A telltale symptom of kidney disease in dogs is drastically increased water consumption – a sign that can be easy to missed. The Actijoy solution serves as pet owners first indication that something is amiss, and alerts the owner via the cellphone app anytime a deviation from the dog’s baseline behavior is detected.
Due to the enormous uptick in canine obesity in recent years, dogs are developing diabetes at alarming rates. A diabetic dog will struggle to regulate his or her blood sugar, leading to potentially fatal reactions to food. Like kidney disease, an early warning sign of diabetes is a significant increase in water consumption, which is why the Actijoy WiFi Food and Water Dog Bowl is a useful tool for maintaining your dog’s health and well-being.
Dogs can live with the tick-borne illness Lyme Disease for years without displaying any symptoms. However, Lyme Disease can cause serious health problems for your pet. Hard-to-detect symptoms include depression, loss of appetite, and pain. The Actijoy Health and Activity Dog Tracker will alert dog owners to decreased activity due to depression or pain, as well as changes in eating or drinking patterns. For dogs that are frequently outdoors, early detection of Lyme Disease is crucial.
A startling statistic is that more than 55% of America’s household pets are obese. Obesity is a leading cause of illness and death among dogs and is a risk factor for heart disease, kidney and liver disease, and diabetes. Pet owners can control the weight of their dogs by monitoring the dog’s caloric intake in conjunction with the animal’s energy expenditure with the Actijoy Health and Activity Dog Tracker.
Cancer is the leading cause of death in dogs, and unfortunately, the symptoms are frequently not recognized until it is too late. The best way to detect that something is wrong with your pet is to observe changes in behavior, such as eating, drinking, sleeping, or activity – all of which the Actijoy solution does.
Knowledge is power, and now – thanks to Actijoy App – pet owners can access a wealth of information including how much a dog has had to eat or drink, how much time was spent being active or sleeping, and whether any of these behaviors deviate from each individual dog’s norm.
You can also easily share all the important info and data via Healthbook in the Actijoy App with your vet to prevent dog health problems or notice any signs of illness in your dog.
