Important Tips to Keeping Your Puppy Healthy
This is an X-ray of a 2 week old puppy.
Look at how far the bones have to grow before
they become a proper bony joint!
This is why you should never let puppies jump,
walk up/down stairs, over exercise or over train.
Doing to much impact activity at a young age will
cause seriousissues later in life.
hip dysplasia and other orthopedic conditions are
rising in puppies!
Remember the puppy rule for every month
increase activity by 5 minutes!
For example an 8 week old puppy
only needs 10 minutes physical activity a day -
a 6 month old only needs 30
minutes a day of physical activity!!
*physical activity includes - going for a walk, training, playing
fetch, running,playing with other dogs etc.
Enjoy your new puppy but remember
you wouldn't make a 6 month old baby run a mile a day
so don't make your puppy either!
