Animals have a high chance of fighting off diseases and infections as compared to humans. Animals are less affected by some viruses like HIV which are pandemics to humans. The real reason why the immune system of animals is higher and steadier than of humans is not really known and different theories have been given by different people like lifestyle habits, nutritional value in foods and also stronger genes in animals because only the strongest an fittest of them survive This however does not mean that animals cannot entirely get sick and someone who would assume this is wrong their cases are even worse given their high immune system meaning that when it gets sick it is nearer to death. However for caged or pet animals, one can notice this and take action to get the animals back to its feet and this is done by being taken to a veterinary officer or call one to come treat them.
A vet as they are commonly known deals with animal diseases. It is a branch of medicine and the only difference comes in because they do not deal with humans directly. If reported early, animal treatment can cost less and even save animal life. A sick animal will most likely have the following symptoms. Breath can be one of the checkers that one looks at when determining the health of an animal.
