Perks Of Having Great Dane Puppies.
If you already have your Great Dane Puppy, then you will have noticed how extremely fast it is growing. 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.
It is undeniable that the owner of the dog and also the dog itself will experience a lot of problems during the growth stage. During the growth of the Great Dane, one of the ost common problems that can be encountered by the Great Dane is the panosteitis. The problem about panosteitis can usually be encountered during the time when the Great Dane puppy reaches the age around four and nine months. The panosteitis is also known as the “wandering lameness” since it can cause inflammation in the long bone of one of the legs and what’s worse is that, it usually moves from one leg to another. The degree of panosteitis can range between a mild, unnoticeable lameness to an excruciatingly painful condition that causes your dog to cry and not want to get up. The dog will first experience a limping on one leg on the first week, however, the week after, the dog will again experience the limping on the other leg. By the time the puppy is a year old this condition has usually disappeared. Among all the problems that the Great Dane pup will encounter, the Panosteitis is probably one of the most common and one of the toughest. If you suspect that your puppy might have a medical problem then speak to your veterinarian. It is really important to diagnose your Great Dane puppy as early as possible.
A Great Dane puppy is definitely a large kind of puppy, however, do not get confused with its strength. A growing Dane pup is actually very fragile. As long as your dog still hasn’t reached its first year, do not force it to exercise. You can also take your puppy for a walk, just don’t overdo it.
