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 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. 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.

There are many problems that can occur while the Great Dane is growing. 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. You will notice limping on one leg this week, and another leg next week. It is better if the puppy will reach its first year so that the condition that the panosteitis gives will disappear. Panosteitis is an example of one of many problems that can afflict a Great Dane pup. It is very advisable to bring your puppy to the veterinarian if ever you have a feeling that it has medical problems. Go get your Great Dane puppy diagnosed as soon as you think that it has a medical problem since it is a very important issue.

A Great Dane puppy is definitely a large kind of puppy, however, do not get confused with its strength. In fact, a growing Great Dane puppy is 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.
