As a pet owner, you want to make sure your beloved friend has a happy life. And, as we all know, a happy dachshund is a healthy dachshund. So it is very important to look after your dog’s health. Here are some of the most important and key things you need to do to take good care of your doxie and keep it as healthy as you possibly can, so you can both be happy.
1. Provide Nutritious Food
Your dachshund’s diet is very important for its overall health (it can even affect its mood!). So you need to make sure you give it, if possible, all natural food.
Here are some of the best and most recommended natural dog foods for small dogs like dachshunds.
There are also subscription packs of treats like BarkBox, to resist the urge of feeding your dog “human” treats; that can, sometimes, cause some digestive issues.
2. Visit the vet regularly
No dog ever likes visiting the vet. But it is important to have all necessary vaccinations and regular checks to keep external and internal parasites under control. It is very important to visit the vet since puppy age, so your dog gets used to being poked by the vet.
3. Keep your doxie lean and fit
Exercise is very important when it comes to maintaining a long healthy life. Different dogs will have different activity needs. For most dachshunds, the minimum time of daily walk would be around 20 min. But it is also important to stimulate them with games and other activities regularly. This will help keep your dachshund’s mind and body agile and healthy.
