Taking care of your poodle's health is similar to taking care of your own. Along with giving him good nutrition and regular exercise, it is important to monitor his health and pay close attention to how he's feeling. As in humans, it's important to perform regular at-home examinations as a means of detecting problems early. It's also a good idea to work with your veterinarian to prevent disease so that you aren't faced with treating it. Take the time to learn which preventive measures are appropriate for your poodle.
