Have Fun With A Great Dane.
If you already have your Great Dane Puppy, then you will have noticed how extremely fast it is growing. When your Great Dane puppy has arrived at around eight weeks of age, then t is the perfect time to cuddle and play with your puppy. 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. One of the most common is panosteitis. When the Great Dane puppy reaches around four and nine months age, it is the time where it usually experiences panosteitis. Otherwise known as “wandering lameness”, it causes inflammation in the long bone of one of the legs and often moves from leg to leg. There are definitely lots of negative effects that a dog can experience when it has a panosteitis since the pain can range between mild, unnoticeable lameness to an excruciatingly painful condition that will often lead to the frustration of your dog and it will eventually cry and not wanting to get up anymore. 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. However, the condition that the panosteitis gives to your Great Dane puppy won’t last forever because as soon as your puppy reaches its first year, then the condition and pain will eventually disappear. There are definitely a lot of problems that can afflict a Great Dane pup, and one of which is the Paosteitis. It is very advisable to bring your puppy to the veterinarian if ever you have a feeling that it has medical problems. It is really important to diagnose your Great Dane puppy as early as possible.
Even though a Great Dane puppy is large, do not be misled into confusing it with strength. In fact, a growing Great Dane puppy is fragile. You should not force your Great Dane to exercise as long as it still hasn’t reached its first year because it has been known that Great Danes are very fragile while growing up and they still do not have enough strength. You can always take your puppy for a walk or play just as long as you do not overdo it.
