Perks Of Having Great Dane Puppies.
The growth of a Great Dane puppy can be easily noticed by most Great Dane owners since they have a very fast growth. When your pup arrived at around eight weeks of age, you could pick it up and have a good cuddle. At ten weeks old you can barely lift the dog. It is undeniable that when the Great Dane puppy reaches ten weeks old, everything has become more tough especially for its owner since this is the most stressful part of the dog’s life because a lot of struggles can happen to the dog most especially when the skeleton of the dog is fast approaching the adult age.
As long as the Great Dane is growing, there are lots of problems that can be encountered. Panosteitis is probably one of the most common problems that can be encountered during the growth of a Great Dane. The problem about panosteitis can usually be encountered during the time when the Great Dane puppy reaches the age around four and nine months. There are lots of factors that might happen when the Great Dane puppy experiences panosteitis since it can cause inflammation to the long bone of the leg of the puppy, and most of the time, the inflammation moves from one leg to another, which probably made it more popular in the term “wandering lameness”. You will definitely feel pity if your dog will experience panesteitis since the pain that it gives ranges from mild, to unnoticeable lameness, up to an excruciatingly painful condition that will lead to the frustration of your dog and not wanting to get up anymore. The worst part about the limping on the dog’s leg is that, it transfer from one leg to another, for instance, the dig will experience the limping on one leg, then the week after that, the dog will again experience the limping on another leg. It is better if the puppy will reach its first year so that the condition that the panosteitis gives will disappear. Panosteitis is an example of one of many problems that can afflict a Great Dane pup. It is very advisable to bring your puppy to the veterinarian if ever you have a feeling that it has medical problems. Early diagnosis of these issues is of paramount importance.
A Great Dane puppy is definitely a large kind of puppy, however, do not get confused with its strength. In fact, a growing Great Dane puppy is fragile. Do not force your dog to exercise until it is at least a year old. You can also take your puppy for a walk, just don’t overdo it.
