Understand Boxers And Their Health

Nov 29, 2007
Boxer dogs may not be the most adorable looking breed of dogs but they know how to keep an eye on their masters whom they treat as friends. They know how to give you that look with caring eyes and they certainly know how to comfort you during your sad moments. Humans are certainly not sure how they do it, but boxer dogs are just the terrific type of breed if you are in the lookout for a dog that's athletic, cheerful and comforting.

The traits of a boxer dog may surprise you especially if you are new to the idea of adapting a new dog for a pet. A boxer dog's trait, for instance, is sometimes considered unlikely for a dog. But since a boxer dog usually has a short muzzle and the lower jaw is longer than the upper jaw, this makes it possible for them to snore when they are asleep. An undershot for this type of breed though is normal.

You must know also that boxer dogs are very sensitive to extreme temperature. In times when it is too hot or too cold, a boxer dog will need extra care from you. Be mindful of this because boxer dogs have difficulties in maintaining their body temperature. In times of hot or cold weather conditions, its best to let your dog stay inside the house. Disregard the walks for the moment.

When you let them stay inside the house though, the challenge of keeping them happy and behaved is going to be your main concern. Naturally, boxer dogs are the intelligent ones and they also need to be active. Play with them when you can or if not, give them toys to play with, but it's not a very good idea to leave them alone too long on their own. They will, while they still can, follow you and play with you and your family. Sometimes, simply sitting down with them and talking to them about anything is enough in keeping them still. Above all, your boxer pet will always need to know and feel that you love them, so do what it takes to let them know that you do. They will thank you for it.

Boxer dogs are fun-loving and intelligent breed of dogs. As much as possible, boxer dogs love to be always around people, and even friendly strangers. Unfortunately for everyone, bad days do come up and boxer dogs are not exempted from it. Sickness is usually the main enemy of boxer dogs, it actually goes out for any type of breed or any living thing here on earth. Thankfully enough, there are ways an owner can partake to battle the bad bacteria out of the boxers' way.

A boxer dog's health heavily depends on the pattern of eating and the food and diet he's eating. When a boxer dog is constantly being fed each day more than what he needs, a deadly health disease called Bloat may occur. To avoid this from happening, make sure that you feed your boxer dog with just the premium brand dog food. Anything spicy shouldn't be fed to your boxer pet. Also, be sure that your boxer dog only gets to feed twice a day which, is already the maximum number. Though bloat may still persist or occur at any given time, another good approach is to allow your dog to digest what he has just eaten before you take him for a walk or a physical activity. Asking for a vet's advice about this health problem is also a good idea.

As a responsible pet owner, you should always keep in mind the important factors that are allowed and the ones that are not for your pet. If you could, before adopting one, make sure that the breeder have presented all sides of the story to you. Ask for the healthy histories of both parents of the pup so you'd also have an idea what to do exactly in case of emergencies.

Don't ever think, just for one moment that boxer dogs are not a good type of dog breed. Don't worry too much about spending on medication in case a health problem occurs. What is important is that you adopt a boxer dog because you want to, and nothing else is greater than offering a love to this wonderful breed of animals.
