The Boston Terrier is one of the few dogs that are purebred American dog; it has the adorable nickname American Gentleman. Unfortunately there are some common Boston Terrier health problems that can cause you a lot of pain and not to mention the vet bills that you can run up taking your beloved pet to the vet. One of the less serious things that can affect your Boston Terrier is gas, as in flatulence. It’s really not a laughing matter since these little dogs can cause quite a stink.
Both these problems are down to the physical build of the dogs. The respiratory problems result from the shortened muzzles of the Boston Terrier. The protruding eyes of the Boston Terrier can also result in problems. Part of Boston Terrier care means using the right types of collars and checking the eyes regularly for grass seeds. Boston Terriers are also sensitive to extreme temperatures; your Boston Terrier does not like extremely hot or cold weather.
Breathing problems are a very serious part of Boston Terrier health problems and there are several measures that you can take to make sure your dog does not suffer from these. First you should never use a choke collar when training your dog, this could be very dangerous for your Boston Terrier.
You should rely on praise and tone of voice in training. Boston Terriers should not be over exerted; they don’t need a lot of exercise anyway. A daily walk and some play is enough to keep them in shape and happy.
Having a natural diet improves the overall health of your pet. It is also a much safer diet when you think about all the pet food recalls that there have been lately.
One thing you can do to help your dog avoid the eye problems that are part of Boston Terrier health problems is to let your dog’s whiskers grow. Boston Terriers that compete in dog shows have their whiskers removed but this can lead to an increase in eye injury.
Your vet will be able to give you a list of warning signs to look out for in your Boston Terrier and better prepare you for what is involved with Boston Terrier care. The type of vet you select is also very important, whether you choose a traditional vet who uses conventional medicine and drugs or a vet who practices holistic veterinary medicine where drugs are used only when necessary.
As a breeder you should be committed to raising puppies that are free from blindness, deafness and other problems to help eliminate these problems from the breed completely.
