Common Rottweiler Health Problems

Aug 21, 2008
Before you take on the responsibility of a Rottweiler dog you should become as familiar as you can with potential health problems. Some Rottweiler health problems are more issues to be aware of than actual problems while others are problems that every owner should be aware of and every breeder should make owners aware of.

Knowing what you are looking for before it happens can help you to properly care for your Rottweiler better and can make you aware of the warning signs so that you know what to tell the vet.

Like any other living creature a Rottweiler will develop some health problems if it is not fed the proper diet. As your dog's owner it is your responsibility to make sure that your dog is getting all the nutrients it needs and none of the stuff it does not need.

Nutrition is important to a Rottweiler and a few health problems can come as a result of bad nutrition. As an owner it is your responsibility to make sure your dog is getting the proper nutrition to avoid any potential health issues. One health issue regarding nutrition is gas. Your Rottweiler can develop a pretty bad case of flatulence if you are not feeding it correctly. So do you and everyone in your house a huge favor and make sure that you feed your dog properly.

Another potential byproduct of bad nutrition is bone disease that can cause a deterioration of the joints. This condition can also be hereditary or even come about over time through natural causes but you can certainly reduce your dog's chance of bone disease with a proper diet. However if you notice your dog having difficulty getting around get them to the vet immediately.

The Rottweiler is a unique breed of dog when it comes to exercise. Too much is bad for them and not enough is also bad for them and both can cause Rottweiler health problems. So you need to work with your vet, and your dog, to find that mix of the right amount of exercise versus quality down time so that your dog does not get injured but it also does not get obese either.

Your Rottweiler can be afflicted with many different types of conditions and diseases that sometimes other breeds are not as affected by.

There are always health issues and warning signs to watch out for when you own any pet and that is especially true with a Rottweiler. A Rottweiler is more susceptible to cancer than many other breeds and it is health issues like this that you have to keep on the look out for so that you can make sure your dog is always happy and healthy for life.
