What a pity that dogs cannot speak! Or do they know how? It’s just that their “language” does not consist of words that are familiar to us, but of signs. These signs can tell us about the dog’s feelings, about her attitude to what is happening, to others and, of course, to ourselves. Want to learn how to interpret them? We will help you! 10 popular dog emotions are in our article.
And let’s start with the most recognizable sign! It is generally accepted that if a dog wags its tail, it means that it has a great mood. But in practice there are nuances.

Knowing the main symptoms and causes of liver problems will help the owner quickly respond and protect the health of the pet.
The liver is a kind of “filter” of the body, which is involved in all metabolic processes and eliminates toxic substances.
