Breed Info & Puppy Care

01. Exercise and nutrition

As well as daily exercise to ensure your dog doesn’t become overweight, high quality dog food should be fed to your German Shepherd twice a day.

The amount you feed your dog will depend on their age and size. Always read the label or seek advice from your veterinarian if you are unsure.

Lastly, a German Shepherd’s coat will shed predominantly in the spring, so be sure to brush his or her coat weekly to get rid of excess hair and ensure they are always looking their best.

02. Common health problems and illnesses

German Shepherds do have their share of health issues, which is why it’s a good idea to take out insurance for your German Shepherd while they’re still a puppy.

Ear infections
While a German Shepherd’s long, floppy ears play a large part in what makes this breed so loveable, they can create issues when the airflow is blocked to the ear canal and moisture becomes trapped inside. When this occurs, infection is likely to develop, and your German Shepherd will need a course of antibiotics to prevent any long-term problems developing.

Cushing’s disease causes your dog’s glands to produce too much of the hormone cortisol. Contact your veterinarian if your German Shepherd experiences thinning of skin, frequent urination or hair loss as these are common symptoms of the disease.

Distichiasis is a painful condition that causes the dogs eyelashes to grow back into the eye, and prompt medical care is required to prevent more serious eye problems developing.
