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 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. This period of growth is the most stressful time in the life of a Dane puppy, as many things can go wrong during this critical time when the skeleton is fast reaching the adult height.
As long as the Great Dane is growing, there are lots of problems that can be encountered. During the growth of the Great Dane, one of the ost common problems that can be encountered by the Great Dane is the panosteitis. Usually, panosteitis develops while the pup is between four and nine months of age. 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”. 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. 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. Panosteitis is an example of one of many problems that can afflict a Great Dane pup. 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.
Even though a Great Dane puppy is large, do not be misled into confusing it with strength. You have to keep in mind that a growing Great Dane pup is not strong enough, because in fact, they are very fragile. Do not force your dog to exercise until it is at least a year old. You can always take your puppy for a walk or play just as long as you do not overdo it.
