Keeping Your Dog Healthy

our new dog's health actually began before he was conceived. Hopefully, his ancestors were healthy and long-lived, and his mother was healthy, parasite free, vaccinated, and well nourished prior to Fido's conception. Reputable breeders only breed healthy dogs because those dogs are then more likely to produce healthy puppies (yet another reason why you should buy your puppy from a reputable breeder). However, accidents do happen sometimes—a male dog jumps the fence to visit a female—or an owner without enough knowledge may allow dogs to breed that should not have been used for breeding. This can affect the health of the future puppies. If the mother was healthy during her pregnancy and the puppies were born without difficulty, her milk came in well, and the puppies nursed vigorously, then those puppies had a great start on life. If the mother was not well vaccinated, was underfed, or had an underlying health condition, the puppies may not thrive as well as they could have. Although it's now up to you, as your dog's owner, to continue his health care so that he can live a long, healthy life, make sure your veterinarian is also a part of your dog's normal health regime.
