Know More About Great Dane Puppies.

If you already have your Great Dane Puppy, then you will have noticed how extremely fast it is growing. It is a perfect time to cuddle and play with your Great Dane puppy especially if it has arrived around eight weeks of age. 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. One of the most common is panosteitis. Usually, panosteitis develops while the pup is between four and nine months of age. Otherwise known as “wandering lameness”, it causes inflammation in the long bone of one of the legs and often moves from leg to leg. 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. You will notice limping on one leg this week, and another leg next week. 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 ever you feel that your Great Dane pup is not feeling normal, or if you have an instinct that your pup is facing a medical problem, then do not hesitate to talk with your veterinarian before things get worse. Early diagnosis of these issues is of paramount importance.

Even if for a fact that the Great Dane puppy is large, there are still instances where some of them are not strong enough. A growing Dane pup is actually very 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 also take your puppy for a walk, just don’t overdo it.
