Ways To Maintain Beagle Health

Jul 18, 2008
Pet owners are always concerned with the proper way to care for their animals and when you decide to invest in a beagle for your family pet then your first concern should be the proper beagle health care tips. Owning a pet is a lot of work but there are some very simple ideas you can use to help keep your beagle healthy and happy and a part of your family for many years to come. Make sure regular visit to the vet is part of your beagle's health plan and contact the vet if persistent problems arise.

Beagles love to eat just like any other living creature and the idea that there is such a thing as human food separate from any other creature's food is wrong. A healthy diet for your dog should consist of properly cooked meats, raw vegetables, and raw fruits as well. All creatures eat food and you should help keep your dog healthy by feeding your beagle the foods that are best for it.

Beagles have a very thick coat so a major part of proper beagle health is to make sure that their coat is clean and that nothing has a chance to get in there and cause any major health problems. Plan on bathing your beagle at least once a month and if your beagle goes outdoors at all, or comes into contact with dirty situations, then plan on bathing them more often than once a month.

And to maintain proper beagle health you should bathe your pet more than once a month if they play outdoors or come into contact with especially dirty situations that may not be the cleanest. Beagles have thick coats and those thick coats can pick up a lot so bathe your dog regularly to cut down on harmful dirt in their coat.

Proper grooming is also very essential to the health of your beagle. A regular brushing of your beagle is not only essential to good health but also probably something your beagle would appreciate and enjoy as caring for that thick coat can be difficult. You can try clipping the dog's nails but in the end you may want to leave that to a pro as beagles and nail clippers don't normally get along very well. But nail clipping is extremely important to the health of your dog.

Beagle's are world famous for their cute and floppy ears that are considered to be one of the most identifying features of a beagle. But those floppy ears are also an area of concern for ceagle health as they can block proper air flow in and out of the dog's ears. You need to check under those floppy ears regularly and if you notice anything unusual, or any build up of any kind, you need to contact your vet immediately.

Your beagle's teeth are also in need of attention and this is a process that starts when they are very young. As a puppy get your beagle used to your finger gently rubbing across their teeth. As they get used to it then add a small wrap of wet gauze to your finger with some baking soda.

They may then let you move up to a doggy toothbrush. Your beagle looks to your for their health care so don't let them down, take care of your beagle.
